Bows and Bali

Turban: DIY Top: Singapore markets Belt: Thrifted Bag: Glebe markets Wedges: Trendy Zone sg Leather shorts: Awoke on a Whale Vintage
I mentioned this a gazillion times but I love collars. This one is particularly special because it looks partly like a bow and partly like a sailor-bib. I also goes perfectly with so many bottom garments. 
I also promised some photo's from my trip, unfortunately I couldn't be bothered taking my huge thing of a camera out everyday so I missed out on grabbing some photo's of elephant riding and water sports. Any who here are some of my favourite places ...
 The amazing rice feilds  A village up on a hill looking over a volcano  Andre my favourite leather tailor in Legian  Dream catchers from an awsome American Indian store
 Beautful leather bags which reminded my cousin of 'pocahontas'  Again in the rice field. ( wasn't feeling the best this day so I couldn't do much about the huge bags under my eyes)
Hope you enjoy the pictures !

Blue Alert

Although majority of my outfit is red, I have to admit that it is my turquoise accessories that have to be my favourite part. They have quickly became  favourites in my collection of jewellery and  I have a feeling they will look really nice against white as well . 
Also it's very lucky I am in bali right now because if I had been in Karratha with my parents I would have been facing some mini tornado's and cyclone alerts. eeeek! Bali has definitely been a great get away and I am going to try take some photo's of my favourite places to share with you all !

Dreaming Green

Dress: Toi et moi Belt: thrifted Socks: American Apparel  Clogs:Far East plaza Bag: Kmart Head Band : diva

Apologies for the delayed post it seems that technology hates me !  Any who I really love this dress toit et moi sent me , I chose it because I love the cut out detail in the back and it's lovely floral green print .
On a completely irrelevant note I am in Bali at the moment and I love it . I have also decided to take up surfing this summer despite my mum laughing at me trekking down to the beach in a crochet dress and boots. Surprisingly they make walking in the sand 10 times easier ! 
Hope you enjoy the post hopefully it wont be to long until the next one . 

Punctuate Please!

Mesh Sholder top : Wholesale dress net  Aquarious Necklace: Diva Belt: Thrifted Skirt: Valleygirl Punctuation Panty-hose : American Apparel 
I love quirky clothing and punctuation marks so to combine the two is just pure genius.  I am always over compensating with exclamation and question marks , as well as the good old !@#$%^&* to simply describe what words cannot .  I'm sure most people will agree with me that they are especially handy with more emotional statements. I bought these tights at the AA store in Melbourne which emphasises how much we NEED one in Perth !!!

Last day of Magic

Hat: Topshop Collared Dress and wreath necklace: Awoke on a Whale Heart Belt and Bag : Thrifted Shoes: Retro Star Melbourne All other jewelry : Markets
A rather youthful look today, I felt  should make the most of it before I turn the big 21 tomorrow. It's hard to believe I am going to be that age when so many people ask me if I'm 15.  Hopefully it will work out better in the long run. 
So far I  have no big plans for the day tomorrow as our family is going on a birthday holiday to bali for  myself and my mums 50th which is very soon, yay. 
I do however  have a special Birthday post planned for tomorrow, which has a little something to do with the online store which sent me this amazing collared dress  .
 So stay tuned !  

Blast From the Past

Felt boater Hat: Topshop Denim shirt: Bardot  Printed tee: Design a space Slip: Thrifed Clogs and wrist band : far east plaza Satchel : Borrowed from my sister
You wouldn't believe how thrilled I was when I found this printed tee.  When I was 17 ( nearly 4 years ago) I was so obsessed with this image that I uses it as inspiration for a surrealism portrait I painted/ drew in art class.  Picture below as evidence! 
Even though the shirt was made for men I could not resist it's sentimental value .  I haven't a clue who created the original so if any-one knows, please tell ? 
Also on the topic of inspiration below is a photo myself and Thom created when we realised I was wearing the exact shorts which were featured on Frankie Magazines October cover 
 Top and belt : Pigeonhole Vintage Shorts: Valleygirl
We tried our best to make it as similar as possible .  Did't do to badly .
