Fashion – Winter Jumpers
Apr
6th

I’m on maternity leave this year, so my work wardrobe is enjoying its holiday in my drawers for the next little while. However, now that we’re heading into the cooler months, I realised all the winter stuff I wore last year was largely maternity clothing or regular clothes that I bought slightly larger to accommodate my belly. So now none of those items are really looking that great, and with a stash of Westfield birthday vouchers burning a hole in my handbag, I hit up Myer’s weekend super sale to update my casual clothing situation. I am loathe to say it’s my mum wardrobe because for some reason I despise that kind of labelling. You know the one: hashtag luvmykids hashtag LOL hashtag mumstaxi.

HASHTAG VOMIT.

But I do need to acknowledge that I will be spending this year largely at home, feeding a baby and doing kinder drop offs and pick ups, and going to the park, so it’s not like I need to be that dressed up during the week. And just for my own sanity, I don’t like to feel like I’m doing those things in trackie dacks I’ve had for the past three years and a Bonds hoodie with mysterious stains on it despite vigorous washing (it’s probably baby spew, who am I kidding?). So on Sunday we marched into Myer and my husband manned the pram while my daughter and I browsed the racks for some new casual stuff and a few new Winter knits.

Spring Sandal Edit – Luxe and Less
Oct
7th

summer-boots

I recently did a wardrobe clean out and threw away literally every pair of sandals I own. Every single pair. They were all at least three years old or more, some of them had straps that were wearing out or broken (but the sandal itself was still wearable), and a lot of them weren’t really… Continue reading ->

Emmy Award

Resurfacing after an unscheduled blogging break to bring you the Emmy Award Fashion hits and misses! We’ve had a tough month of sickness in our house, and though I wasn’t sick as my husband and daughter, I feel very run down and exhausted. So this year’s Emmys red carpet was a welcome breath of fresh… Continue reading ->

Crafty Lady – Girl’s skirts

Girls skirts THUMBNAIL

I’ve been annoyed at little girl’s skirts in shops the past two Winters (and Summers, let’s be honest). They are usually about as long as the bottom of their bum cheeks, and even with tights on in Winter, they’re still too damn short for my liking, especially on my four year old with long, long… Continue reading ->

Retail Therapy – Finders Keepers Market July 2016

Urban Cartel

Did anyone make it to the Finders Keepers market at the Exhibition Building in Melbourne over the weekend? I went on Friday night and had a great time perusing the stalls and enjoying some child-free time. There were a LOT of really great independent retailers there, but if you couldn’t make it, don’t worry! I’ve… Continue reading ->

Country Road Tuck Bodycon Dress

Country Road always do great Winter dresses, with great long sleeves (imperative for Winter – short sleeved dresses in Winter ranges drive me bonkers. IT’S COLD. I WANT TO COVER MY ARMS.) Last year there were a couple I saw that I didn’t buy, including a gorgeous black and white one, and I was kicking… Continue reading ->

Movie Review – Two Fashion Documentaries
May

Iris poster

Coincidentally in the last few weeks I’ve watched two documentaries on fashion, specifically fashion in New York. I don’t watch docos often, so it’s interesting that I managed to see two on a similar topic within weeks of each other. The first I saw at the movies when it opened, the second I watched on… Continue reading ->

Fashion – Autumn Style

Diana Ferrari suede boot

Okay, since the mornings have officially become cooler, I feel it is now acceptable to discuss Autumn fashion. I wanted to do this post a few weeks ago, but since I was at the local outdoor pool with my daughter as recently as last Thursday cooling off in the heat, I just didn’t feel right… Continue reading ->
