lace ups

How cute are these lace up wedges, I'm in love with them!  They are so different to what I normally wear and soooo comfy.  A shoe I would never have considered until I saw a another girl try them on- they looked great! So my shoe envy resulted in a new purchase for me.  Great news though- I did get them on sale a few weeks after first spotting them : )

I've been having a play on Photoshop with these photos.  Let me know what you think- I'm still experimenting with techniques.  I've copied the tips from one of my favourite blogs 'The Daybook' (

Thanks to my wonderful hubby for taking my photos!  Much better than the usual timer & tripod.

Mind the gap

Back in Melbourne and catching the train into the city for lunch with friends.  Wearing a Topshop bodysuit with this really great version of a denim skirt, cute wedges and my Harrods bag.  The belt was a great bargain from Marcs during the January sales- less than half price at $19- yay! and it's all holes so works at any size.

wedding daze

Firstly, thanks for all the great comments on my last post. It's great to hear from you.

Here I am at my beautiful cousin Sami's summer wedding. This dress I wore as a bridesmaid back in June 2010 so it was really great that I could get another wear out of this one!- a big thanks to my bride for choosing such a lovely dress for her bridesmaids : )  It's from Cooper St and bought at Swish Clothing on Chapel Street, South Yarra.

These are really, really, really great shoes from Tony Bianco!  I have the same pair in black because they are just so great.  This colour is great for leg lengthening.

white lace & chainmail

This is a really cute white lace top with buttons up the front from Just Jeans about 5 years ago, on sale I'm pretty sure.  Nice to have a variation of the classic white tank.  My fav and most versatile scarf, fav sunnies and the usual Dotti jeans.  Hey and my fav bag.! This is my day of favourites : )

I felt pretty good in this getup.  I hope you like it.

shiny pants (eep!)

Yes, I'm wearing shiny pants!! This is a scary new world for me but I've given it a crack- not sure if I've got the confidence do it again. Super high heels were a must that is for sure.  ANYONE out there got any tips on how to wear these scary wet-look pants... please post me a comment : )  I'm thinking I might funk them up next time with my old army GP's (worn non stop through out my uni days in the 90's- heh heh).

I 'm wearing the shiny pants (eep- that's a scary word combo) with an oversize shirt which I got a few sizes big from Big W quite cheap. I tie it at the front instead of the back for a nicer drapey effect.  Angel bun and hoops to finish.

lush studs

Hit the shops today with my friend Michelle for the sales!  Having already raided her wardrobe for the hit, misses and missing we went on search of the missing on Chapel Street, South Yarra.  Michelle has a great set of legs so we  had to get them on show, also need to find some tan flats and wedges.  Customer service was great as I usually find on Chapel St.
This dress I LOVE, so easy to wear and I always get compliments on it.  The earrings I'm wearing are cute too and I got them for about $2.50 at Sportsgirl.

t-bar & glass jewels

Hello to my new followers and thank you for the comments- I love hearing what you think!  I've made some changes to the page I hope you like them.  Only running one week behind in my posts now so nearly caught up : )

This jacket is one I've had for ages, picked up at a Portmans sale for about $20.  I like the military feel to it with the shiny silver buttons.  My necklace is from the markets in Venice, Italy.

at the car wash...

At the car wash with my hubby and dad. 

The necklace is from the markets at Federations Square Melb by Sunday Morning Designs and reminds me off my cat 'Bumble Bee'- sooo cute.  This dress is a fav of mine and I'm sure you'll see it in future blog posts.

skulls at the beach

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE and welcome to my blog!! Offically launched on 2 January 2011. 

I've been busy uploading a lot of posts over the last couple of days so I have something for you all to look at.
Heading out to lunch in Port Melbourne with my hubby.  The handbag is my new Oroton tote which I bought for myself as a reward for completing my postgraduate in Business qualification at Monash Uni in December 2010- yipeeee!!!! Is got a gunmetal mesh side which is just beeeeaaaauuuutiful, chain handles and is ginormous which is a must for me.  I'm treating it very carefully thus far and it lives in its dust bag when not in use- this bag better last forever!
