Bettina Liano and vintage T

(vintage T, Bettina Liano leather panelled skirt, Jessica Simpson Dany platform heels and thrifted clutch)

Spent the weekend in Melbourne after a bit of a disaster at work on Friday. Saw the Camina Burana performed at the Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday night, and went vintage shopping on Chapel st. Melbourne is so much warmer than Canberra and it kills me to come back! Back to work tomorrow, sob....

Dany platform heels

By Jessica Simpson. My favourite heels. I am now at the point where any platform that's not as high as this is unacceptable. The perfectly smooth and rounded wooden heel is glorious, and the T-bar strap rocks my delicate Aquarian ankles. Aqaurians are supposed to have killer ankles, ok? They go with everything, and they are steeper than the Jeffery Campbell version and therefore awesome.

What's your favourite pair of heels?

Mickey Mouse headgear

(Equip beanie, thrifted furry leopard shirt and cat-eye sunglasses)

I've decided it's time to start an adorable beanie collection to give me something to do during the winter (and of course to stop my ears falling off). Really need to solidify a good Winter uniform and stop just trying to wear summer clothes with Wintery accessories though...

What are your favourite Winter trends?

Platform booties and dead grass

(thrifted over-sized sweater, Forever 21 khaki skirt, Therapy booties, vintage necklace)

Spent waaaaaaaay too much money this long weekend on skinny leg office pants, three new over-sized sweaters and two new pairs of Wittner heels. Actually one is heel with a rad leather bootie, heel cut-out and Velcro strap, and the other is a mega black platform wedge with elastic straps. Both are killer and both will be getting a good workout this week.

How about you guys? What's your latest purchase or what are you lusting over? Are you doing better at saving than me?

obsessed much?

(thrifted sweater, Zara duffle coat, Bettina Liano leather and suede panelled skirt, Sportsgirl agate necklace and Therapy booties)

This thrifted sweater is snuggly and adorable and therefore my new favourite. I wore it last night with my trackies, then out to dinner in the above ensemble and then to work today. I must admit I become thoroughly obsessed by certain items and wear them constantly for a few days/weeks/years (as in the case of my ill fated perfect denim cut-offs). I have a several closets full of clothes and shoes, and yet if you looked at all the outfits I wore you would probably think I was some kind of hobo who only had enough money for a couple of different items. Do you guys do this too?

electric feel

(vintage sequin dress and Therapy booties)

You can't go wrong with an outfit that makes you look like a mermaid.

Any ideas for what I should wear to my Dad's 60s themed 60th birthday party? I'm thinking Bridgette Bardot inspired hair and make-up and some kind of short, possibly sheer floaty white hippie thing. I have a feeling I'll be hitting the local op-shops this weekend...
