I stayed in Newcastle last night with the bassist from my band. We had a gig in the evening, and Trains are kind of scary after dark. Anyway, my overnight bag was really heavy (Because I had to take my laptop and music stand up), so my back is kind of sore. But at least I look cute? :)

I’m starting to get back into the swing of things are far as uni life goes. I had my first flute lesson of the new Semester with my wonderful teacher Sally Walker. We played through my concerto together, which was really funny, but really helpful.

I had my first class on the Main Campus of Newcastle University today. It was really really fun, but actually getting to class was a nightmare.

wpid-20140731_131503.jpg

 

Basically, I got lost. And not just a little bit lost, completely and utterly lost, to the point where I had absolutely no idea where I was for approximately 40 mins. I eventually found the room, but, I was locked out of the lecture theater.

I managed to catch the last 3rd of the class, which lead to my hands being completely covered in ink. I know where to go now, so no more getting lost for me! :D

I was not ready for semester to start.
It’s the first week back and I’ve already had to skip a class. It was for a good reason though.

image

The good reason is that my band had a gig today. We played in the Derkenne courtyard at main campus. We had a good intimate crowd. It was pretty sweet :3

image

Blazer : thrifted, shirt : target, belt : Alannah Hill, skirt : home made, stockings : eBay, shoes : don't :s

Anyway, this is what I wore.

All in all it was a pretty good day.

Today is the first day of my last semester of Uni. I’m really looking forward to uni being over, but at the same time, I really don’t want uni to be over!

image

Coat: spin doctor, shirt: the cyber shop, skirt: home made, stockings : eBay, socks: eBay, shoes: Dr Martins

Anyway, this is what I wore today!
The shirt I have on here is actually a corset (which you can kinda sorta not really see in the next picture)

image

I really enjoyed doing the odd shoe thing today. I haven’t done it for a while :s

image

Anyway, basically I had rehearsals all day for upcoming assessments and gigs :3

Such fun.

Today was another ordinary Sunday. I woke up, got dressed, and went to my rehearsal. I’m a singer and Flautist in The New Empire Ballroom Ragtime and Jazz Orchestra. Basically we mostly play music that was written between 1900 and 1930 (we specialize in 1920’s music). We haven’t had a performance in agessss, and it’s so nice to get back into the swing of things.  (If you’re interested, here’s our show reel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abxvscyrOJM and our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Empire-Ballroom-Ragtime-Dance-Orchestra/133418976695940?fref=ts)

Coat: Tree of life Shirt: Ally, Belt: Alannah Hill, Shorts: Home made, Stockings: Coles, Shoes: Dr Martins.

This coat man. I’ve been eyeing it off in tree of life for about 2 years. The lovely Ro Dogz knew this, so he made it my birthday present this year. I. Literally. Don’t. Ever. Want. To. Take. It. Off. (It’s actually perfect.)

wpid-20140727_145942.jpg

Uni goes back tomorrow, which is both nerve wracking and exciting! I’m really looking forward to hanging out/jamming with my peeps, but, I could pass on most of the assignments.

wpid-20140727_145939.jpg

Speaking of Uni! My band has all the gigs coming up at Newcastle University. The first one is this Wednesday at 12:00 at Bar on the Hill at Main Campus. If you’re around then you should totes come out. :3

I had a day off today. It was made of happy fun times. These fun times included staying in bed till 11:00 and sewing my heart out.

I had two firsts with my sewing escapade today. 1) I’ve never sewn successfully with such drapey fabric. 2) I’ve never sewn such a drapey item of clothing.

wpid-20140724_160707.jpg

The fabric I used is adorable , but it was an absolute nightmare to cut/sew. Everytime you go to cut/make a marking with chalk, the fabric slides all over the place. I ended up pinning my pattern to the fabric then cutting around it (My tailors chalk was next to useless :( )

Here’s a closeup of the fabric:

ALLL THE KITTIES

All in all, I think this way a day off well spent.

The album my band Vanishing Shapes is making is so close to (yet so far away from) being finished. We holed ourselves up in a room to have a decent listen/critique/obsess over our performance of every detail.

Blazer: Cotton On, Shirt: Cotton on, Belt: Alannah Hill, Skirt: Home made, Tights: Ebay, Socks: Ebay, Shoes: Thrifted.

This is yet another skirt I made over summer. I saw the fabric in the baby quilting section in Spotlight and had to sew with it.

wpid-20140723_132939.jpg

I’m also really feeling blue at the moment. It’s such a serene colour.

This my friends is the wonderful dude who’s mixing our music for us. He’s actually a bit brilliant. https://soundcloud.com/jack-tuckerman This is his sound cloud in case you’re interested :3

I have no words about this.

Man, this weekend has been hectically fun! Rohan and I traveled down to Adelaide on Saturday morning for Avcon (which is the Adelaide version of supernova) He was on a panel about Chip Music, and Played at Avcon after Dark as a part of the Sound Bytes performance. When Rohan wasn’t doing things with bleepy bloops, we were hanging with the rest of the musicians. Not only are they pretty cool dudes, but their music is pretty darn amazing.

Here’s the list of artists for the evening (I highly recommend you check them all out because they’re all a bit brilliant) Xanadox http://xandox.bandcamp.com, Victory Road http://v-road.bandcamp.com/, Dot.AY http://dot-ay.com, Derris-Kharlan (Featuring Tiasu) http://nathanantony.com, Little-scale
http://little-scale.blogspot.com.au/, Ctrix http://ctrix.net.

As for what I wore, I wore my icecream skirt. (I’ve posted it twice in the last 2 weeks, so I doubt any more pictures of it need to be posted for the time being :P)

Now onto what I wore today:

 

wpid-20140722_124402.jpg

Beret: Thrifted, Blazer: David Lawrence, Shirt: Ally, Belt: Alannah Hill, Skirt: Homemade, Tights: Sports Girl, Shoes: Dianna Ferrari.

This is yet another skirt I made during my summer break. I haven’t worn it in forever though probably because I wore it once a week for 6 weeks after I made it at work, so I got a bit sick of it :s. You can’t see very well in these pictures, but the waist band is scalloped around the lower edge.

wpid-20140722_124406.jpg

Also, can I just rave for a minute about how cute my dogs are? These photo’s were taken in my back yard, which is where my dogs chill, so of course they had to be included in the photo fun times!

wpid-20140722_1244230.jpg wpid-20140722_124606.jpg wpid-20140722_124554.jpg

They have such pretty faces! :3

Today was a good day. The only downside of having a good day is that it wasn’t very eventful, so my words will be a bit boring this evening.

wpid-20140718_153603.jpg

Blazer: Black Friday, Vest: Bodyline, Shorts: Gifted, Tights: Ebay, Tights: Ebay, Shoes: Do not remember D:

wpid-20140718_153547.jpg

Even though I didn’t do anything much, I still enjoyed dressing up. Usually i just wear boring comfy clothes for days like this.

wpid-20140718_153605.jpg

I’ve had the Blazer in this picture since I was in year 10. I bought it on a trip to Adelaide. It was the week my parents and I went to the Australian Flute Festival (It was also the weekend I realized I was not suited for high school education, but that’s a story for another time.)
