Close Encounters of the Accessory Kind!

Image
I've been on the hunt again for cool and quirky accessories.  The markets and op-shops have been a bit lacklustre lately, so another visit to my fave local shop, Tattooed Zombie, was in order!  
You may remember some of my previous purchases from there (this is not a sponsored post: I just love 'emπŸ˜‰): 






Don't they have the coolest stuff?  They are all handmade by the store owner, Dom, so I'm always happy to support local business.  I use that as my excuse to buy more!!πŸ˜‰
My latest purchase were these cute glittery alien earrings!

I decided to wear my fave green skirt and this time chose to add yellow accessories as well, for something different!
The outfit: Top: Sussan Skirt: Skallyrags Shoes: Rivers Bag: DELUXITY (present from Mum) Necklace: Lovisa Ring: Bought in Japan

Boho Vibe!

Image
I was struggling to come up with a title for this post!  I kept thinking this outfit has a "boho vibe" and wondered what title would sound good to match the outfit.  Then I thought, don't over think it!  If it has a boho vibe it can be called boho vibe!!πŸ˜‰
I really do feel my happiest self when I'm wearing boho clothing and accessories!  To me, nothing beats the interesting textures, colours and patterns of bohemian inspired fashion.  That's why I especially love going to various markets where creative people design and make their own clothing and accessories.  
Throughout my professional career, I have  always had to "tone down" the brightness of my clothing and accessories and ultimately wear a corporate costume to work!  That's why I love having a blog because I can always be authentic to my mood and style, without holding back!  
Not that my style is particularly weird or "out there" anymore, but some places I have worked over the yea…

Somewhere, over the rainbow....

Image
After a stressful week, I felt like wearing something very bright and cheerful! The dress is sleeveless, so I added the black shrug/cardi to provide coverage.
My university study is stressful and I've thought of quitting several times already and it's only been a month!  It's hard not to be overwhelmed.  Wearing bright and colourful rainbow clothing and accessories is a good way to project an external image of fun and cheer.  Others then perceive you to be in a happy mood, so then you can fake it till you make it!!πŸ˜‰
The outfit: Dress: Present from Mum (Hawaii) Shrug/cardi: Crossroads Shoes: Holster Ring: Bold Ray Designs Bag: Rockmans
Bangle: Bought at Op-shop a few weeks ago.  Isn't the pattern groovy?!πŸ˜‰

Somewhere, over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Image
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  Even though I don't drink, I still like to celebrate the day by wearing green and enjoying a nice steak and Guinness pie!  
A lot of people celebrate the day here in Brisbane and Australia wide.  Approximately 30% of Australians have some Irish ancestry (myself included)!  For more info about how St. Patricks Day is celebrated in Australia, click here.
This is the outfit I wore yesterday to attend a training course.  I was in air conditioning all day so I could wear my nice new emerald coloured cardigan! 
The outfit: Top: Katies Cardigan: Present from Mum (Hawaii) Pants: Millers Shoes: Rivers Necklace: Lovisa Bag: Rockmans

Of course I couldn't resist wearing my four leaf clover earrings!



Amber was also happy to embrace her Mum's Irish heritage by wearing green!!πŸ˜‰
Do you celebrate St Patrick's Day?  Let me know!  I'd love to hear from you!

Shopping Spree!

Image
I've been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, so I thought I'd share some of my purchases with you!  As usual, my shopping spree revolved mainly around buying accessories!  I also bought the cardi and skirt in today's outfit.  
Finding quirky and fun accessories makes me happy!  I just love stumbling across some great new treasures when you least expect it.  I hope you enjoy perusing my new purchases!

This skirt is so swooshy, I couldn't resist a twirl (or two)!πŸ˜‰

Thematic Dressing!

Image
I recently went op-shopping and came across this fabulous skirt!  It is fully-lined and in great condition and features a quirky and fun print with various images and writing on it.  The first word I spied on it was "Paris".  I knew then that I had to have it because I knew it would complement my "J'adore Paris" top perfectly!   
I love thematic dressing and all things matchy-matchy!  I think it makes dressing more fun and creative!  I don't always dress to a theme, but when I see something that I know will go together well, I absolutely have to put them together!
Here are two themes I tried recently:
Outfit Theme: Paris! Top: Sussan Skirt: Bought at Op-shop Shoes: Rivers
Bag: Bought at Op-shop
Ring: Bought in Japan
Bracelet: Lovisa


Another outfit that just had to happen was a unicorn themed one!  I already had a unicorn skirt and brooch, so when I recently bought shoes with unicorns emblazoned on them, you know I just had to pair them all together!πŸ˜‰Initia…
