supre singlet, dont ask amanda shorts, rubi shoes, sportsgirl hat, diva necklace, dangerfield sunglasses, princess highway bag.
Yay Christmas is coming! You know how I know this? Maybe because of the giant Santa next door! I am starting to get worried though, there's only about two and a half weeks until Christmas and I haven't done nearly all of my shopping. Have you done yours? x

alyssa wears: mink pink dress, lipstik shoes, collette clutch.
hannah wears: glassons dress, collette clutch, novo shoes.
Some friends are very lucky to be able to share clothes. With one of my friends in particular, we can take the same item of clothing and transform it in to a completely different style to each others. So really we can share everything! As you can see above, this friend of mine is Hannah and she is wearing my dress and my clutch. I am wearing Hannah's dress. The only thing we can't share is our shoes (much to Hannah's dismay) as we are different sizes.
I would love to be able to tell you that I have saved much money from doing this but really I haven't. I usually just go out and buy more clothes when I want them rather than just checking out my friends wardrobes, but it's always nice to have some backup. xx

I was going through my wardrobe last week and pulled out a few items I never wear and don't really like. Instead of just throwing them out or using them as rags I decided to play around with them and see if I could make them wearable again.
I have really been inspired by fringing for the last few seasons, I love everything with fringing (I've been looking for a reasonably priced fringed bag for agessssss!). So this was my inspiration for this funny coloured asymmetrical singlet top from glassons which I'm pretty sure I found on the sale rack and bought it for the sake of buying something.
Because the back is shorter and sits just above the bum, I only shredded the front of my top.
1. Turn the top inside out and with a pencil draw a line where you want to cut strips up to. It's best if you try the top on first and work out how high you want it.
2. Cut in a straight line up the middle of the top up to the line you drew.
3. Continue cutting strips up all the way to the side, I did mine in all different thicknesses so it was nice and rough looking.
4. Finish cutting up the whole front of the top to the line drawn.
What do you think? Quick, easy and cheap to add a little quirkiness to my festival outfit. xx
glassons top (diy - to come), supre skirt, spend-less shoes gumboots, portmans fedora, cotton on bag, wanderlust and co studded cuff, ray ban aviators (below).
hannah wears: glassons shorts, luv lou by erin louise top, spend-less shoes gumboots, equip sunnies.
There was certainly no need for gumboots on Saturday at Sydney Showground and what a day it turned out to be! The pouring rain in the morning cleared up by midday and out came the sun. Shame I had already planned my festival outfit around rain but it turned out ok. Some of the acts were amazing, the picture above being a packed out ANZ Stadium for LMFAO.
These shorts! I want them aren't they gorgeous? If anyone knows where I can get myself a pair drop me a comment! xx

charlie brown coat, target work pants, rubi beret, brogues from a little shop in melbourne, cambridge satchel company satchel.
I took my satchel to work today and I decided to really make it POP. I wore completely black and against my outfit you almost needed sunglasses it was so bright. My beautiful bright satchel inserted some joy into such a gloomy day in Sydney. It hasn't stopped raining all week and apparently it doesn't plan on stopping for the weekend. So on that note...
New in: GUMBOOTS!
mid-calf black gumboots: spend less shoes.
These babies will do me just fine on Saturday at Stereosonic since it is going to be sloppy and wet and my festival Converse will not suffice! Been on the search for gumboots since the start of the week and since they are out of season but the lovely Hannah rang around today and found some! They are boring black but I'm not complaining especially as Hannah took even more initiative and bought us emergency ponchos! Lifesaver.
Tickets are still on sale from the website or just have a look on facebook, it seems everyone is scared of the rain so they have decided to sell their tickets! xx

Yes Christmas has come early. For me anyway, my beautiful baby arrived the other day in it's own Santa sack.
Unfortunately for my bank account, it is not the only handbag I have purchased pre-xmas because there is so many gorgeous ones out there it would be unfair not to buy them too. My excuse for my Cambridge Satchel is that the satchel is a classic, except maybe for the colour.
My new favourite will be featuring heavily I'm sure in outfit posts to come. At least I have something to brighten up this gloomy weather in Sydney at the moment. I hope it clears by Saturday for Stereosonic Festival! More on that to come...xx

portmans skirt, supre sheer top and singlet underneath, glassons blazer, novo boots, kaboodle designs necklace.
Now I'm not really one for wearing lots of black and dark colours, but when it is different textures it doesn't seem so boring to me. I tried this sheer on sheer combo and I felt so comfortable and light. As you can tell, I had a bit of fun with the flowy skirt (you should see some of the other photos). I was so excited to find this skirt a while back with the knife pleats in it and loved the colour but what I didn't think about at the time (all I was thinking about was how pretty it was), what am I going to wear with it? Anyway as you can see above I decided sheer on sheer was a bit more interesting especially teamed with my new clock necklace from Kaboodle Designs. Pretty right? xx

Just a quick post before I go out tonight, here's my dinner I whipped up out of what I could find in the cupboard. Now I'm no Masterchef but I've made a similar one before with a few different ingredients, but we just have to work with what we've got sometimes!
To make my quick and easy veggie pasta you need:
Pasta - any type you like, I used penne.
Olive oil for the pan.
Veggies - frozen or fresh, I usually like to use brocolli, zucchini, snow peas, mushrooms (once again I just used whatever was around).
Tomato - this is important, you must add tomato.
Clove of garlic and half a chilli.
Mozzarella cheese to finish (my favourite part).
Firstly, boil the water for cooking the pasta.
Cut up the garlic, chilli and tomato. I like my garlic and chilli in big chunks.
Add the pasta to the already boiling water with a teaspoon of salt. Stir occasionally so it doesn't stick to the pot.
Heat a frying pan, pour in some olive oil and when hot add the garlic and chilli. Let it simmer for a while until you can smell the yummy ingredients.
Throw in your green veggies, I defrosted mine for 20 seconds in the microwave as they were frozen. You want to keep them crunchy so they only need a couple of minutes.
Add in the tomato, you don't want to cook it just warm it up and mix in with the other veggies.
I always taste my pasta to check it's cooked. For my small amount it only took 10 minutes.
Strain the pasta and put it in a bowl.
Put your veggies on top of the pasta and drench in mozzarella cheese. Yummmmmmm.
Note: when cooking for yourself - use less than half a chilli. Personally I'm not very good with portion control and I paid the price for the that at dinner time. Mouth is still burning an hour later.
