polkadots, bows and dodgy DIY.

Blouse: Sister's/ not sure, sorry!
High-waisted shorts: mum's old jeans, DIY
Bow: Diva? or Sportsgirl
Lace-up boots: Urban Outfitters
Tights: Vintage RazzaMatazz

It's so cool that I found these polka-dot tights at the thrift store (still in it's original RazzaMatazz packaging; unopened and unused of course!) I was volunteering at as part of my school's Community Service program, and they are actually in style! Been wearing them wayyy too much, though. My mum gave me these high-waisted pants of hers to upcycle, and this was the result. It's from the 80's - legitimately vintage, minus the whole troublesome act of sifting and sorting through musty-smelling clothes at the salvo's, and washing them at least twice to make sure they're clean enough to wear. Or is that just what I feel and do with thrifted clothes?
Oh and DIY story of my life, I cut these shorts way too.. short. Oh well, I've wanted shorts in this nice vintage blue for so long now, so I won't stop wearing them!
By the way, some boys just don't understand the high-waist look, my boyfriend and sister's boyfriend included, haha!

tiered creams.

Quick outfit post, lovelies!

I was feeling the need to procrastinate and dress up for a photoshoot, for absolutely no reason at all! I've got to get back to my mid semester exam revision now though. No other school has exams at the start of Term 2 *sigh*.
Dress: some random store with a generic name/ I forget.
Tights: Vintage RazzaMatazz
Heels: 'Don', Tony Bianco
Clutch (Isn't the print just so amazing?): Live
Ring: Diva

Ps. I don't know why I look to the floor/at my clothes in photos. I guess it's too awkward staring directly at the camera, haha.

long time no post.

Ok so it's been soooo long since I posted! I'm really not good at this whole blogging thing. There's no one to take my photos when I go out, and I've been so busy that I barely go out anyway. I'm like a hermit, for realzzzz. Year 12 (I know I keep blaming it on this) really kicked in early, and I'm aiming for as close to perfect score as I can get, so I'm trying real hard. The nerd within me has been kicking my butt lately. In other news, I bought an SLR! The Sony Alpha 33 SLT to be exact, but everyone seems to be against Sony and for Canon, so I'm kinda dithering on whether to keep it or return it for a Canon instead. Decisions, decisions. So BLAHH.
I haven't been able to keep my new year's resolutions very well; esp. the whole 'try to blog more' resolution. Hence, the camera. Maybe awesome camera= more outfit posts?
Anyway this is a quick outfit post; just casually threw on this ensemble, took the photos, and was on my way! It's my go-to outfit!

High-waisted shorts: Asian store in Sydney (from sister's trip)
Blouse: Vintage (from mum's wardrobe, which I raid all the time!)
Rings: Sportsgirl/Diva
Booties: Tony Bianco
Nails: the result of end of term 1 break boredom and bottles of white and navy blue nail varnish.

That's all! Thanks for sticking with me guys, even though I'm such a slack blogger. I appreciate every one of you, I really do! Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway here. :) I've decided to extend it a little so don't worry, participate, just for fun!
