Smooth Criminal

As kind of a new years resolution, my partner and I decided to downsize our lives down a little, part of which included getting rid of our apartment because he works away five days in a week and it's such a huge money drain. So Australia Day is our goodbye apartment party!

Meanwhile I moved in with some friends on Sat so Sunday was achy and lazy so the man and I went to balmain for lunch and drinks and this was my Michael Jacksonesque getup.

Prada Sunnies, Forever New Playsuit with Myer Jumper over the top and Wittner booties.

Work Wear

One of the upsides of working in Marketing in the Cosmetics Industry is that you can take liberties with work attire, so this is what I wore today super comfy and a vast improvement on the suits I used to wear!

 The details:
Wearing Country Road Jacket, Scanlan and Theodore top, Cue Pants, Avon Necklace, Calvin Klein shoes and BCBG Maxazria clutch.

Also I have been tagged by some lovely (and very stylish) bloggers for the stylish blog award, if you havent already I suggest you check them out!

Aelie at Autumn Castle
The Lovely Ladies at Black Ink Vintage
and of course The Stylish Shoe girl at The Stylish Shoe Girl 

So here are my 7 things about me:
  • I am petrified of birds but love buying clothing and jewellery with birds on them.
  • I study my MBA (Masters in Business) at night and work long hours which is why I start nearly every outfit post with "sorry the photos arent great but I was in a hurry".
  • I love lists, I am not pedantic but love crossing things out when I finish them. I even write things that I have already done just so I can cross them out.
  • I am obsessed with the bubbles game app on the iphone, I wont stop playing it until I reach 5000 points and you know what happens then? Nothing.
  • I have a habit of naming inanimate objects, my laptops name is Archibald, my boyfriends laptop is Reginald (AKA Archie and Reggie), my Chanel bag is called Shelley Channelly and my car is called Heinrich Von Trappensson the Third (he is an Audi so needed a german name).
  • I have a (dorky) love of politics and economics and I am a staunch Atheist and Civil Libertarian.
  • I am moving out of my apartment this week to downsize and live with some friends and I am already mourning the view!

I'm With the Band

I wore this Friday night and now realise I didn't take a very good picture of this dress, its kind of mod-ish with a high neckline and straight up and down fit, however it is VERY short.....I had to be careful which dance moves I used.

I just realised I didnt take a front on pic so here is a close up of the pannelling that runs down the front of the dress.
I bought these shoes I think about 4 or 5 years ago from zomp, I hated them at the time but now they are so worn and grungy I love them.

Summer Classics

I find it hard to do polished most of the time but moreso in Summer, when all I want to do is bum around in denim shorts and an oversized singlets. After scanning through all the millions of images saved on my computer I found this simple combo of a shirt and high waisted skirts on these women look really lovely and doable in the heat. I think I am going to go on the hunt for some new shirts today.

On an unrelated amazing is Peony's hair (the last pic)? I am thinking of buying a Mason Pearson brush...does anyone have one and are they really worth the cost?

All about the shoes

Let me start off by saying that my last few posts have been relatively uninspiring but it's been a bit mental here....also seem to have a bit of a black Morticia theme going on?

Anyway I bought this Scanlan and Theodore (yes another one) sample dress recently when I was in Melbourne. Turns out its actually an early design of a dress that I already own! I guess I have a specific style. I love anything loose but this dress appealed to me because it's simple enough to wear with my poor neglected Alexander Mcqueen's that sit in my wardrobe untouched because they overwhelm most outfits.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a side shot to see the shoes before the rain set much for summer.

On a brighter note there will be an Alexander Mcqueen exhibition on at the Met when I am in New York.....hoorah!
