one of those classic my-eyes-were-closed (!) shots
Faux fur scarf: the accessories section in Myer
Don't you just hate it when clothes look better in r/l than they do on camera? This dress is just gorgeous but on camera it makes me look somewhat... frumpy. I thought I'd post the outfit anyway, even though I don't like the way it turned out. If you all haven't noticed, I tend to wear a lot more black and white tones than colour, especially in the winter, but I'm working on adding some navy, baby pink, mustard, khaki and crazycute patterns into my outfits. Just to snaz it up a bit.
This dress needs some ironing too.

Officially on a shopping ban, sigh. Guilt after a day of shopping: isn't it just the worst feeling? These are just a couple of the things I bought, either because I couldn't resist, or because as soon as I saw the piece, life would all of a sudden be incomplete if I didn't have it in my wardrobe. What's the use of having a wishlist when I'm an impulsive buyer? Le sigh. My wishlist extends to about 2 A4 pages long whereas my 'random junk I bought' list would be enough to fill one of my A3 art folders. No, really. If only I could resist, maybe all those things on my wishlist would belong to me. Oh, if only *cue melodramatic music*. Life would be so perfect. Just for a moment, though, until I find something else to add to the list. Gah, can anyone say material girl?
I've wanted patent oxfords for forever now, and at AU$18, not too bad right?
The sister persuaded me to get grey oxfords because.."you have too many brown/tan pairs of shoes!" and as soon as the order was put through, I regretted it. I'm just not a grey oxfords kinda person...but..when these babies arrived, I saw that they were the perfect mix of a somewhat rusted/faded grey brown and not the grey I was imagining. Alas, I fell in love. Oh Steve Madden, you always know how to please a girl.
I'm so late on this moustache trend but this ring was so cute! $3, couldn't resist!
My armour ring obsession. This trend is definitely overdone but these rings are too cute to pass up.
Still loving snakes!
Patent oxfords from Miss Me via Amazon.com; wingtip oxfords from Steve Madden also via Amazon.com; moustache ring, armour ring, snake ring, 'key' ring, all from Diva; pillows (because a girl can never have enough pillows..?)
I bought a bunch of other stuff, i.e clothes but I can't photograph them well, so they'll feature in my blog posts later on.
