I actually wasn’t sure if I was going to post these outfit pictures at first. I decided I really hated my hair styled to the side like that, but then I realised, it’s probably my PMS stricken brain & I don’t look too bad. But not to the future Natalie, don’t wear your hair like that again. (I’m sure we all have days when we wear something and then later re-look at ourselves and think, hmm, maybe I should do/ wear something different)
Anywho, I love this dress! I got it for Christmas off my parents. I was out shopping with my Mother one day, and came across this rainbow maxi, in Rockmans of all places. On the sale racks, I looked through the sizes and they had a size 18. I grabbed it and rushed off to the change rooms. Rockmans is one of the straight sized stores that I can sometimes fit into, and I wanted to dance around when this slipped on perfectly.
The brilliant thing about this dress? It was originally $100, but was on the sale rack for $35, which I thought was a major bargain. When we got to the register, it scanned up as $15! Yes-sir-ee, $15!

Do you own any rainbow items of clothing?
I know I said in my post the other day (here) that I don’t really wear denim, and that’s the truth, but it is ‘IN’ at the moment, it’s everywhere, and I kept getting drawn to this top at ASOS. After seeing a girl out wearing a similar top, I decided to take the plunge and buy it for myself when it went on sale. I found it really hard to style though, I don’t wear collared shirts often.
I decided to make it extra feminine. Sure, to me, the denim shirt does have this ‘country’ type vibe to it, but the lace adds that lady like touch. I was really worried when I made this dress into a skirt a couple of years ago, but I’m glad I did, I wear it more as a skirt then I ever would as a dress.
While over the past few years I’ve left my ‘all black’ wardrobe behind and embraced a rainbow of colours, it still weird to see myself in so much white/cream. I’m still not a huge fan of such light colours, I’m pale enough as it is I find they make me look even more of a ghost!

To be honest, I got a little thrown this time with ‘feminine’. I think feminine is certainly one of those things that can mean different things to different people. I think of myself as a feminine dresser, I like dresses & skirts, lingerie, heels, pretty colours.
I decided to push my boundaries a little and go a little crazy. Yes, that is a shark crop top, and yes, I think I managed to make it look somewhat feminine. Sure, sharks aren’t nessasarily what you’d call feminine, but throw on a pretty pink cardi and some pearls and wa-hey.
NOTE: I wouldn’t actually wear it without the cardigan, like the middle picture, but wanted to show off what it looked like on.
The top was a limited edition Black Milk release. For some reason I was really drawn to the shark pattern (IDK!?) & while I would have loved the long sleeve dress or leggings, I opted for the cheapest, being the crop top. It is SUPER tiny. Like teeny tiny. I think it’s one of the first time in a while I was thankful for having small breasts!
