Turning Twenty Nine – Reflections on Entering the Last Year of My Twenties

  I have always maintained a child-like devotion to birthdays, particularly my own. Given that there are only a mere twenty days separating my special day from Christmas, I have always had a desire to differentiate my birthday as much as possible from festive celebrations. This year December fifth marks twenty-nine years since I came into this world mewling, flailing and rather florid in colour. As I creep ever closer to the big three-oh, I have been reflecting on all the things I have achieved in my twenties and all the things I haven’t got around to doing yet but… Continue Reading

The Obligatory First Day of Spring Wardrobe Reflection

Today is the first day of spring. I know you are thinking ‘not another person celebrating the change of season’ but as someone who lives to get dressed, I’m sorry, but I am going to reflect on the sartorial possibilities the warmer weather will bring. Here is what I am looking forward to:   Bare Legs   After months of cocooning my unshaven legs in stockings, I am looking forward to being able to let my legs see the light of day again. I had to go all the way back to April to find a photo of me exposing… Continue Reading

Reflections on My First Week of Unemployment

  Now, dear reader, this post will not offer any advice on how to avoid unemployment or how to be successful at finding a new job because lord knows I am no expert on those things (meanwhile, if you want to know how to style coloured stockings that is something I can offer advice on) it is merely a reflection on my current state of joblessness. Earlier this year I took the risk of leaving my unfulfilling yet permanent day job for a three-month contract in the Australian Public Service. And while I doubled my income, which allowed me to… Continue Reading

A Few Outfits

Polka Dot Party Dress: Gorman Bag: Vintage Chanel Shoes: Miu Miu The Look: Flirty black layers with pops of pink, what’s not to love? This dress comes as two separate dresses making it super good value. I bought it in Melbourne and discovered the security tag was still on when I got home. My boyfriend Jesse smashed it off with a hammer so I could wear it to the opening night of the Ladies in Black musical. Balenciaga for Less Dress: H&M Shoes: MR by Man Repeller The Look: This is another bargain that I picked up from H&M in… Continue Reading

A Few of the Times I Got Dressed This Week

Layer City Dress: Country Road Skirt: Alexa Chung x AG Jeans Ring: Dior The Look: I am not sure why but on this day I felt compelled to wear a skirt over a dress. I blame Instagram. I don’t anyone at my day job appreciated this look (I got a few double takes) and my own mother questioned my decision, but hey I liked it. The Queen of Ruffles Top: Miu Miu Skirt: Country Road Shoes & Bag: Gucci The Look: This is one of my all time favourite shirts. It sat on my Net-a-Porter wishlist for months until it… Continue Reading

Some of My Better Style Moments This Month

I recently moved into my new house and am still in the throes of setting up my dressing room. I have things everywhere including at my mums. I had dreams of revolutionising my wardrobe and the way I dress as soon as I moved in however, as with most things I highly anticipate, my plan was not as instantaneous in its execution as I had intended. Nevertheless I have managed to pull together a few rather special outfits from among the chaos this month.   The Party Dress Dress: Kenzo x H&M Shoes: Burberry The Look: I am a big… Continue Reading
