New Look

Outfit of the first Melbourne Fashion Week Plus show!

Friday night marked the first night of Melbourne Fashion Week Plus, you can read about the runway and my thoughts HERE. I decided to go on something comfy and colourful. I really loved this dress the moment I saw it on the New Look site, as I waited to have the money to buy it, it went on sale.

The dress did sell out in my size, so I bought a size up figuring I could always get it taken in, but I don’t mind how it looks in the larger size. I think it will be nice and cool in the summer. It’s still quite cold in Melbourne, so of course I layered and decided to take some of the 90’s fashion trends that’s in atm and layered with a white shirt underneath.

At the LuWow in Melbourne after MFW+

After the show, a whole group of us headed over to The LuWow. I’d been before and loved it, so I’m glad everyone enjoyed themselves! It really is such a fun and kitchy place. Our cab ride over had us all laughing and singing and then when all the cocktails came out with all sorts of things in them, oh the photo opportunities that arrived. I am SO sad that it’s closing at the end of the year.

Afterwards, we all realised we didn’t really have many good outfit photos, so we tried to take some more. By this time, I know I was a bit drunk, especially after trying tequila for the first time! As this was happening Liv made a friend who had around 3283798 photos with her and then decided to sneak in a photo with me, that I just had to include.

Have you ever tried tequila?


Lustlist time again! For awhile there, I was really un-interested in what was in fashion. It just didn’t seem to mesh with my style. However, it seems that is now rectified! lustlist-july12th

I remember this dress being a HUGE hit when it was released many years ago, the first batch sold out within 24 hours! You can see me wearing it as a top here. I decided to pull it out to wear today. I’ve been under the weather the last few weeks, but i’ve been feeling better these past few days, enough to rock some bodycon with a bit of VBO! Black really is a forgiving colour, isn’t it?

Bringing some extra colour in with this longline cardi I picked up from Rockmans last year. I’m not usually a fan of green, but this limey chartreuse yellow/green is a fave of mine. It’s funny how you can dislike most shades of one colour, but love one other shade.

Excuse the hair! I’m trying to fade the colour out as much as possible before I dye my re-growth and play with some colours to celebrate my 30th birthday coming up. I’m thinking a rainbow sand art type of colour. Something I wish Guy Tang would do to my hair, hey a girl can dream!

Can you notice something different about my face? Yes, I have officially retired my lip rings! I will miss them but I’ve been considering getting rid of them for awhile, it was just sentimentality that kept them so long. My grandmother paid for me to get one set done. I’ve had them for around 10 years now, it was time to say goodbye. It’s harder to see, but I still have my septum ring in.
