two year blogaversary!

It's my two year blogaversary! Blogging has given me the chance to meet so many cool new people, and even helped me score my current job. Thanks so much to all my friends on the interwebz, I am seriously inspired by you (sometimes I even steal your outfit ideas...).

To mark the occasion, I made this short video to say hi, and the following one to chronicle some of my highlights from the last two years. Hope you like them!

daily style at the Radisson

(Sportsgirl headpiece and mesh tank, Bonds singlet, Cotton On jeans and Wittner elastic platform wedges)

A couple of shots from Sunday while staying at the Radisson in Sydney. As usual I brought a whole heap of stuff and only really wore two outfits, but I was glad that I cracked this headpiece out again, I haven't worn it since Melbourne Cup day last year.

Sportsgirl inspiration

Sportsgirl utility strap watch, airy mesh sweater (in mint), Shia wedge animal print boot, Nail It in Rollergirl, Melinda lace short, Lena sling bag, Art Factory sunglasses, finger ring.

I bought the Shia wedge animal print boots on sale a few weeks back and now they're even cheaper! I think the next thing on my list is the airy mesh sweater :)

Burberry Spring 2010.....ish

(thrifted sweater and satchel, Cue knotted skirt, Wittner suede wedges)

You can't see any of the detail on this skirt, but it's very Burberry Spring 2010-esque. I love the knotting and draping, but it makes it kind of awkward to wear with anything untucked, unless it's an industrial-strength insulator like this sweater. The bulkiness covers all the bumps up nicely. I have a feeling the skirt will be easier to work in the Summer with flimsy tanks or tees tucked in.

Topshop foot candy

Topshop Love platforms and Walberg blue suede platform wedges

I may need to start hoarding Topshop heels. They are just way too beautiful. The choice of colours that are blocked on the Love pair make me crazy, and of course the electric blue of the Walbergs is a given. I feel that I've amassed an adequate selection of black footwear, and it's really time to branch out into Summer brights. I know we're still in the middle of Winter but it's just more fun to be in denial.

Aqua nails

It's no secret that I'm pretty into aqua, and this is maybe the third bottle of basically exactly the same shade of nail polish that I've bought. It matches Lady Gaga's current hair, which I'm pretty sure she copied off me. Just saying.

Alexander Wang Spring 2010

(Thrifted jumper and cut-offs, Valleygirl sunnies)

I had to buy this jumper as it reminded me of this Alexander Wang piece. It's a bit scratchy but totally worth it.

colour blocking

(thrifted jumper, DIY Jay Jays shorts, Therapy booties, thrifted satchel)

Inspired by this post by Shin of Fashion Cappuccino, I set about combining aqua and royal blue, both of which are fashion favourtites of mine. Despite the fact that I have multiple items in these exact colours, I have somehow failed to think of combining them. It's definitely fun to try the colour blocking trend, and I'm not sure why I don't do it more often (maybe beacause it's kind of hard to pull off crazy-bright bottoms...). I definitely had fun and I'm now keen to take a look in my closet to see what new combinations I can think up.

Have you tried colour blocking? What are your favourite colour combinations?
