It’s not easy being green…

Unless you’re wearing this dress.
Then you’re fine 🙂

I got this dress from DFO for $20!

It is extremely flattering (drawing attention to the waist with the black band, and making hips look smaller with the peplum) and surprisingly warm (the temperature has dropped a good 10 degrees from yesterday).

I also like the little bit of sheer black detailing on the neckline.

This dress is a star in its own right, so I’ve just paired it with black tights and heels and when it cooled down I added my black Portman’s blazer.

Dress Deception…..

06.11.2013I have already have a few comments on my outfit today.

I’ve gotten a few I-love-your-skirt’s and some cute-top’s, but in fact it’s a dress.

This is yet another great purchase from Ozsale.
I think it was about $15. It’s a little bit girlier than a lot of my other clothes, but it’s really comfy and perfect for when the weather gets warm (It’s a lovely 28 degrees in Melbourne today!)

I chucked on my black Dotti cardi just because the aircon is always on in my office, and I’m also wearing beige tights, not for warmth, but because I got the stupidest tan line yesterday and need to try cover it up!

Decided to keep my hair down to make the most of the curls remaining from Sunday.

Wedding bells….

03.11.2013No, it’s not my wedding.
It’s actually my best friend Lindsay’s big day.
Unfortunately I didn’t make the cut for the bridesmaids, but I am performing a song during the ceremony.

The wedding is out doors, so I thought I should wear something bright!

I bought the dress first from MissGuided for $16. The moment I got it in my hot little hands I decided this was the dress I was going to wear to the wedding.

It was a serious mission to find shoes to match the dress. I tried almost every shoe store in the CBD, eventually I found these awesome multicoloured heels on Brands Exclusive for only $18!

After the shoe debacle, I didn’t even bother trying to find a headpiece to match, instead I headed to Clegs and bought ribbon to match my shoes and put together this cute hairclip.

The necklace was one I already owned, left over from when my mum had her jewellery making phase.

And finally, I’ll let you in on a little secret; the lace section of this dress is see-through (gasp!) so I’m just wearing a beige bra underneath.
Fingers crossed noone looks too close!

Lighten up….

01.11.2013As the weather gets warmer and the sun starts to come out, clothes get lighter (both in colour and weight)

Today I dressed for spring.

Yes I know it’s been spring for a month now, but we haven’t experienced too much spring weather yet.

This cute green top is from Jay Jays. I got it for $5 when I was about 15.
I love that I can wear it to work, and also dress it down with some jeans for the weekend.

Despite staying true with my black tights and cardigan (I did put my pointy black heels on before I left the house), I lifted the whole outfit by mixing it up with my grey pencil skirt (another great OpShop find).

Topped off with a high bun, I’m ready to enjoy spring 🙂
