Autumn uniform

(thrifted jumper and denim cut-offs, Therapy booties, Myer sunnies)

Autumn is not as bad as it seems, in fact I really don't mind it being cold until it gets unbearable to even walk to the car. These kind of temperatures I love, because all kinds of cutesy trans-seasonal high-jinks ensue. Really the main combination I am wanting to live in is sloppy sweaters and short shorts, skirts or jeans. All of the chain stores around here seem to be feeding off this teend in a big way. I feel like the look was heralded by bloggers so I'm happy to feel like a part of it.

After much searching I am yet to find my new denim cut-offs. These ones will do at a stretch, but they have (very adorable) patches that don't really suit my everyday needs. It's always the simplest things that elude you I find. I am also hankering after this awesome coyote fur hooded coat, which is slightly out of my budget but so beautiful that it's still a possibility. I wouldn't rule it out people.

trying times

(thrifted blouse, Valleygirl leopard shorts, Myer sunnies)

I bought these shorts just before my Valleygirl ban...and I am pretty happy with them despite the effort it takes to pour oneself into them. It was the only size left so that couldn't really be avoided. In other short related news (and this is very hard to type), my favourite denim shorts have totally bitten the dust. Those who follow this blog may realise what a big deal this is to me, as I wear them probably every second day, statisticaly speaking. The small tear that was gradually making its way across my ass decided to quickly make its way across my ass over the weekend, and I fear that they are now too minuscule for even my standards. It's the kind of thing that could legitimately get one arrested for indecent exposure. I'm just saying, I'm pretty certain those shorts were 'the one' and now I am a sad sad widow. The search begins anew.

Also am currently waiting on the delivery of my new black leather and suede panelled skirt, which should bring me some comfort. Don't get offended or anything, new skirt, but you are definitely a rebound garment. Just so you know.

moving on

(Thrifted cut-offs, random wife-beater, Rivers gladiators)

I am hoping this will be the last of my "I can't manage to point a camera at my own head" posts. I promise the top of my head is still there, and it will be showcased here once again soon enough. This week has been a crazy time of big changes at work, and will be followed with a weekend of moving into my new house, organising our staff outing to Jamberoo (big water park on the south coast) and attending an Oscars ball. Oh and going shopping for the ball tomorrow. I promise I will only buy a total investment piece, though...
