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

Top: Topshop
Leather Vest: St Lenny
Skirt: Glebe Markets 
Bag: Kmart
Necklace: Subiaco Markets
Rings: Sportsgirl
Hat: Sportsgirl

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
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 !!!

Also for those who haven't yet heard I am having a giveaway which is running till the 14th so read the post below if you would like to know more .

Last day of Magic

Hat: Topshop
Collared Dress and wreath necklace: Awoke on a Whale Heart
Belt and Bag : Thrifted
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 .
