pattern on pattern

(Dottie sheer tank and draped skirt)

A new outfit I acquired last weekend when I was absolutely not going to traipsing around the shops buying anything. Tomorrow is the first day of fulfilling the blood promise I made to myself not to by anything from Valleygirl (awesome cheap and somewhat nasty chain store) for a whole month. I won't buy anything else cheap and nasty either (sob!). Investment pieces, yes, thrifting, yes. Bad quality, a resounding NO.

Topping my wish-list is a fur-coat, a leather skirt and pair of shorts, sparkly tights and a pseudo-army jacket. Let the big-spending begin!

hit the ground upright

Ebay leopard wedges, Sportsgirl dress and vintage belt, Just Jeans silk tank and H&M jeggings

Some random thoughts this Summer: leopard print is not repulsive to me any more, in fact quite the opposite (I am always so late to pick up on a trend), glow sticks are a must for basically any occasion, goddess dresses are a timeless investment and silky textures equal instant outfit upgrade.

Thrifted satchel

This has been my go-to work bag for the last few weeks, but it also forces a little structure onto ripped cutoffs and tanks, and I am so so happy with it.

(thrifted baggy man sweater, Forever 21 bike shorts (yes, I am wearing bike shorts...) and Therapy grey pumps)

Now it has been a long time since I've shod myself in pumps, but as a bit of an ode to Carrie Bradshaw I was feeling this kind of look. As in "I'm so dressed down and casual, and then I went and ruined the whole comfort idea by wearing heels, but it looks rad so eff you...". Plus my Mum gave me some shoe cash for my birthday and took me to her favourite shoe store, so it would have been rude not to take something home. Plus they were on sale. I've decided that their platform and thick cone heel make them acceptable to me.
