Outfit – Grungy Grey Chic

In Melbourne, you wear layers. It’s something I’m still learning. The mix of this hi-low dress and my oversized chambray jacket made me feel very 90’s grunge. Even more so when I added in my headphones.

When I go and see my psych, I like to be comfortable. There is a 90% chance i’m going to cry, so I always go make up free. I’m so glad I found a psych I like here in Melbourne, even if it is an hour journey each way to see him. My mental health has been pretty horrid lately, so i’m on a fortnightly schedule. It’d be weekly if I could afford it.

To dress it up and make it more me, I added my cat women brooch and cat belt. My head has been on all things cat lately with my Tonka being so sick. I adore Karolin Felix‘s art and I bought this brooch around 7 years ago!

As you can tell, I’m still on the grey kick I mentioned. I have to stop myself from picking up anything I see in grey, though I am looking for the perfect grey bag!

What colour have you been drawn to lately?

Outfit and Event – Supanova Melbourne

Last Sunday, I headed out to Supanova. For those who have been looong time readers, you’ll know I used to work in the convention industry. My last con was 6 years ago, so it’s been an age since I’ve been to one. Boy have they grown! I was quite stunned at just how huge it’s grown.

Having put a poll on Twitter asking which of two outfits I should wear, and the clear winner was an Ursula/Disney Villians themed outfit. I think it turned out pretty well and I was super comfy. Seeing as I was working on three hours of sleep comfort was a big thing.

Supanova - Welcome to the Wolfpack Panel - Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs and Maria Lewis

One of the main reasons I headed to Supanova was the Authors! Three of my favourite authors were there and on Sunday they had a panel I really wanted to see. “Welcome to the Wolfpack” was a panel featuring Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs and Maria Lewis all about their take on Werewolves. The panel was packed with feminism, history and lots of laughs.

Lack of sleep meant eyebags larger than normal. That problem was solved by going all out with glitter! Yep, I was up at 6:30am to do my hair and makeup. I played around with a wrap necklace to create a harness type effect and use that to pin my Ursula brooch on.

My hair has some major regrowth going on and is in desperate need of a dye, so I decided to wear a wig. I braided my hair into the front and covered it with my trusty flower headband. It apparently seemed real enough I had a lady ask what dye I used!

All these photos were taken in the afternoon. I forgot to put setting spray on my make up but luckily it stayed put brilliantly. If I can say so myself! I had a brilliant day and picked up heaps of fun things I can’t wait to share in upcoming posts.

Have you been to a convention before?

Outfit – City Chic Rose Dress (again)

I think you’ll be seeing a bit of this dress, due to the fact that it is PERFECT. I am so in love with the rose print and embroidery trend, so this dress ticks all the boxes! Last Thursday night, I went to the Adam Brand concert (which you can read about here) and this is what I was planning on wearing. If you look at the pictures from the night, you may notice, I’ve changed a few things.

Do you ever have those times when you have something on and love it, but right before you head out the door, you think ‘NO, I need to change something’. This happened to me. I also remembered that Mallory had glow sticks and I wanted them to show on my wrists. I changed this top to a City Chic Bolero, took off the necklace and changed from the sandals to heels. Why I chose heels over flats, I have no idea. I also went for a darker shade of lipstick. I took these photos a little earlier before I left to make sure I had good lighting but it just shows how you can change an outfit but simply swapping out a few key pieces.

I love layering things under dresses. I don’t believe you have to wear a jacket of bolero over things, simply insert a top. Anything from high neck to something with statement sleeves can change the whole look. I wanted something to cover my arms up a little and this top worked wonders!
