I've had my eye on this necklace for a while. Me and my mum found it at this little boutique down high street but I couldn't afford it at the time and she bought it. It has two pieces, the women wearing her under garments and the dress that hangs over the top, just like a Victorian paper doll. I managed recently to convince my mum to swap it for another necklace of mine she's had her eye on. So happy! I love it.

This jacket is another of the things that I am selling. It was one of the first pieces of clothing I ever sewed myself. I wanted a brocade jacket forever, especially in this minty green colour. I made it with a whole bunch of other clothes as a sort of collection. They were all very ethereal. It's really well made with stretchy jersey edges, sort of a bomber jacket, Letterman's style. I think I always sort of wanted it to be more like a denim jacket though, and the fabric is so soft and loose, it doesn't actually sit that well. Don't tell anybody on my auction though :p.
Also, sorry about the drab background and surly face. There was so much glare that I could barely open my eyes. I need to buy a new tripod or find a better place to take photos. At the moment, I am just propping my camera up against the window sill which isn't that effective.

I like to compartmentalise my life, organise the files on my computer into a long path of twists and turns, return my eftpos card into the same slot in my wallet over and over again. Looking at my room, or the amount of times I have lost my keys and cellphone, you wouldn't think I was an organised person, and I'm not. I'm more just neurotically logically. Be that as it may, I have started to write a lot more lately and I wanted a place to put it all down. Since this blog is devoted to my obsession with fashion, I thought I would start a new one, devoted to my narcissistic wishes to be a writer.
So if you love reading as much as you like clothes, please knock three times
And give me feedback!

I feel bad that this blog has taken such a long hiatus, but I needed a new camera and was scott broke for an entire year. Being a student can be fun in a lot of ways but it does mean having very little money. In some ways, I almost enjoy that though, I get such a thrill out of bargain hunting.
I have grown a bit over the years of blogging, and I decided it was time to get rid of some old clothes that I either do not fit, or do not wear, and make some money in the process.
Unfortunately, some of things that I am getting rid of I actually really love still, but the great thing about having a fashion blog is it's like an archive. I never really feel like I get rid of anything because I can just look through my old blog posts and see myself wearing them again (even better because I can see myself wearing them when I still fit them haha).
So I thought I would do a bit of an homage post to one of my favourite wardrobe items, my world skirt, as I cannot fit it anymore, and am sending it off to a better home.
Seems quite funny that I go from heels to boots to slippers in these photos.
