Pin of the Day: Floral saddle shoes

I love that Pinterest allows me to collect and categorise the stuff I find on the web each day. It's probably more about wishing and hoping for some, but I like the order of it all; it's a way for me to organise my thoughts and inspiration. Really, it's a mood board for a hopeful life.I'm such a realist that I rarely pin anything that I couldn't ...

Cutie pie vintage

I adore getting creative with clothing. If I was skinny, I would be one hot dresser but it has come to my attention over the years that pre-1998 no-one appeared to be overweight and they certainly weren't six feet tall. Nothing vintage fits me. I'm lucky to get a roomy Sussan XL to fit me right now, but that's another story.I initially wanted this ...

Psychedelic grey

Maybe it's the rainbow party preps, but driving along on my way to the train station, it suddenly struck me how grey, silver, black, white and bleak the road has become.Growing up we had a bright yellow Mitsubishi van with lurid green carpet (and my parents wondered why I was constantly car sick). Parked behind it in the driveway was a ...

Not just for losers

I understand that many bloggers like to keep their blogs as their 'happy place'. They feel that the good memories are the ones worth recording and their blogs reflect that. I get it, sort of. But in a lot of ways, I can get a big slap of 'happy place' from women's magazines, where newborns are all 'angels' and celebpretties wax lyrical about ...

Sales time my Wardrobe Shop

The ever-stylish Nikki at Styling You did a great vlog on Friday where she mentioned 'shopping your wardrobe'. As a person who rotates the same six garments at the front of a seemingly packed full wardrobe, heading into my own stash before I hit the shops seems like a great concept. I think it could definitely work at my place except...My ...

Daisy Dukes and fairy floss

This year the Sydney Royal Easter Show wasn't about the rides or the show bags or even the wood chopping. The fairy floss, the demented fairies on sticks, the cheese sticks... all those fairies and sticks, they all took a back seat.Because this year, the Sydney Royal Easter Show was all about the Daisy Dukes.Pack after pack after pack of teenage ...

♥ Loving Shoes of Prey

I think we've established that I'm all about the ideas rather than the actual skills / drive to pull them off... I dream about dresses that will never be designed, businesses that will never trade and (apparently) coffee tables that don't exist (EIGHT years!).Shoes of Prey is a mad name for a really cool concept. You draw and design the ...

Bling on love on the big day

It's Vaaaaaaaalentine's Day! Cue intimate candlelit dinner for two (plus 48 other restaurant goers). Cue a dozen red roses (I guess it's the thought that counts). Cue those little 'love teddy bears' that sit at the bottom of florist tubes (weird). Cue... meh.Couldn't really care less, actually. I adore my husband every day, he adores me right back. ...

Do you have a look?

I was surprised to learn last Friday (at an impromptu 'yay we survived the first week back at school' pool party) that apparently I have 'a look'.Me. A look.I've never considered that this could be the case, but I was assured by a very stylish  (all the School Mums I hang with are very stylish) friend that she "liked my look"."Really?" I ...
