What I Wore: Vintage Dress & Erstwilder Brooch

My beautiful friend Shelley was turning 40. Shelley is all kinds of fabulous, she is stylish, she is fun, she cooks like a chef and is into lots of the things I am into. We are firm friends who op-shop together and don’t mind at all that our husbands head off to the footy together if we can be stuck together on a couch together somewhere. For her 40th, Shelley was hosting a canapés and champagne party for her inner {Read More}

What I Wore: Folk Dress & Tea Stained Petticoat

I am loving the ‘Boho’ look at the moment, I love the natural colours and fabrics. I found this ‘Talisman’ tunic at a thrift store a few weeks ago, it was $6. I loved the colours and the style and thought it was so bohemian. I tried it on and found it to be just a bit shorter than what I would have liked. I found a cute white lace trimmed skirt for $4. The skirt was just too white, {Read More}

What I Wore: Thrifted Upcylced Kaftan Sundress

I shared a post earlier about ‘How To Turn A Beach Kaftan Into A Sun Dress‘  – well… here are the pictures of ME in the dress! I love it! Now I have realised that I have a bit an issue with colour. I love it, and I crave it… but… I don’t know, I just can’t seem to get it right. This means I tend to go for blacks, whites and greys and add colour in my accessories. Now, {Read More}

How To Turn A Beach Kaftan Into A Sundress

A few weeks ago, I picked up a fabulous kaftan from a thrift store. I was shopping with my mother, who told me in no uncertain terms that I should NOT buy the kaftan as it was, “for the beach.” Well, I looked at this kaftan and decided I had to have it. I loved the colour, I loved the design, I loved the neckline and I loved the shape (or no shape which works well for my over shapely {Read More}

What I Wore :: Thrifted Faithfuls

It has been a loooooong time between fashion posts. A LONG time… When I did Frocktober and was putting together a fashion post every single day, I felt really… exposed. Which probably seems strange for a blogger to say that. I don’t like being in photographs. I really don’t. Surely my skin doesn’t look *that* way all the time? Is my nose really that shape? Why does my leg do *that* when I have my photo taken? Critical, harsh questions {Read More}

Now, I live in a regional city where we don’t have a flagship Country Road store (we really don’t need another range crossing – we really need a Country Road store – I wish the council would listen {Read More}

The Frocktober Review – 5 Noteworthy Dresses

Last month I wore a dress every day. Yes, EVERY day. This included camping and work and walks to the park with the kids. It was fun, but… it was a challenge and it was all for Frocktober: raising money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. So… it was all worth it! I am naturally shy and not so fond of being in front of the camera, so to sign up to showcases moi in a dress everyday was {Read More}

Frocktober Day 28 – Ping Pong Black Shirt Dress

In my favourite Vinnies store, they have a section called ‘Labels,’ it is near the counter so as to deter people stealing the designer things. This is naturally the first place I look when I go there.  But… the delightful ladies who work in the store don’t really know their brands as well as they could. Which I love. I may have made an embarrassing yelp when I found this dress in the regular section of the store… because you {Read More}
