In all my years of sewing I’ve only ever successfully made one dress.

image

This is that dress. It’s made from a scuba knit fabric (like the stuff they use for swimming costumes and black milk tights) I bought it on sale from spotlight then spent several hours sticking, swearing and unpicking until I ended up with this.

I’ve officially reached that point in semester where I’m struggling to put together outfits because¬† I haven’t been sewing because study. I’m also having difficulty with the weather change.

image

I’m all about the layers, so being restricted by the Australian heat is tough. I’m also incredibly fussy about the fit of my shirts, which makes buying them an absolute nightmare. I’ll just have to stop being lazy and learn how to sew shirts!

It’s a Floral Kind of day.

forgot a shoe shot :( I’m so lame yo! Have a picture of my eye instead!!

This is what I wore yesterday! I was in a floral-ly mood, so I wore a floral dress.

I absolutely love this dress, but unfortunately its not a great dress to play flute in (which I do a lot) It’s made from cotton, and doesn’t have much breathing room. Tuesday is my main teaching day, meaning breathing is required. Didn’t stop me from wearing it anyway.

This is what I wore Friday evening!

image

I went out to dinner with my boyfriend, his mum and his grandmother and had a fantastic time! It was lovely to catch up and the food was delicious (we ate at a place that predominantly serves pizza, pasta and hot stone food.)

image

I always love having at excuse to wear this dress. It’s such a classic cut, but has a quirky side, which is perfectly for when I need to be semi formal but don’t wish to be dress normally.

I had a bit of a nightmare day today. My awful day was caused by Sydney trains inability to be able to string together a decent train service.

image

Anyway, let’s not dwell on my public transport failure. (it’s making me feel angry yo!)

image

One good thing that came of today was I got to have a good chat with my friend Joe.  He drove me to my car which was much faster than catching the super late train.

image

The icing on the cake as far as awful day are concerned was that maccas discontinued my favourite burger; the mc spicy.

I’m just glad that today is over and I can start fresh tomorrow

Chocolate chip icecream skirt

So I may have hit the sewing machine last night. That may have resulted in yet another icecream skirt. I may have made Rohan help me sequin it.

image

Jacket : thrifted, vest: fan plus friend, skirt: home made, tights : Coles, shoes: Dr Martin, choker: hand made.

I also may have forgotten to change the white balance on my camera (although I kinda dig the results) 

image

Because of the colouring of the skirt I decided to style it in a steampunk-esque fashion. Underneath the skirt I’m wearing the new petticoat I made which consists of approximately 10 layers of tulle.

image

Dressing in a chocolatey manner also made me feel slightly better about my nutty day which consisted of two lessons, a recording session, presenting a seminar, teaching, and an orchestral rehearsal (I may or may not be typing this post during my tacet section….) 

Did I mention that my band got played on the radio Monday? My awesome friend Rachel Cox has a radio show in Bondi on a Monday morning, and my band made it into her top 3 favourite tracks of the week (here’s the full write up: Link Yo) so yeah. Listen to her show if you need new music on your ipod because she has a brilliant taste in music!

So I did the thing where you have a manic day, then you sit down for 10 mins and think “I’ll do all the things in 10 mins to the best of my ability” when in reality you end up melting into the chair while browsing the internet on your laptop which has 10% battery left, then half ass the rest of your tasks for the day once said battery dies.

This is why you’re seeing socks instead of shoes. (Basically I was too lazy to put my shoes back on.) It’s also the reason I missed the last dredge of sunlight this afternoon.

wpid-pict_20141020_203825.jpg

Anyway this is what I wore today!

wpid-pict_20141020_204127.jpg

Jacket: revival, Necklace: The cats pyjama pants, Shirt: Target, Belt: Alannah Hill, Skirt: Homemade, Tights: Ebay, Socks: Ebay, Shoes: The Emperors new

Remember how I mentioned that I cleaned out my closet? Well, I found this belt chilling out of sight! It’s one of those adjustable slide-y waist band belts, which makes it super good for flute playing (It expands as I breathe, leaving my lungs unrestricted!)

Market madness

I participated in the Davistown markets today. It was a long, but great day.

My friend Ashley let me tack onto her stall

image

image

Sorry about the orientation, my phone wouldn't let me rotate it!

It was a pretty quiet day, and I didn’t sell many pieces (I sold two pieces. Of those my mum bought one (I don’t think it really counts if your mum buys it)) but it was ultimately a good experience.
It’s given me the motivation to revive the etsy store I started (I’ll post a link once I get this up and running!)

Anyway, enough about markets!
This is what I wore today.

image

Blazer: David Lawrence, shirt: thrifted, belt: Alannah Hill, Skirt: home made, petticoat: David Lawrence, socks: ebay, shoes: kmart, necklace: the cats pyjama pants, hair bow: Alannah Hill

I figured because it was a ‘seaside’ market that I’d go with something ‘sea’¬† themed.

image

All in all it was a good day!

I had a very laid back day today as far as my clothing was concerned. It was one of those days where you stay in your pyjamas till 3pm. I had a very valid excuse though! I was working.

image

I’m going to attempt to sell some jewellery at a market in Davidstown! Anyway the pendants you see above took pretty much the whole day to sculpt and paint, hence why I stayed in my pyjamas for so long.

image

I did get dressed eventually!! Rohan and I went out for a walk after I had finished the sculpting work. I was feeling a bit lazy, so I went for a more chill outfit compared to what I normally wear.

image

The walk we had was lovely. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and we got to go to spotlight!!

Pleated apples

I had a pretty lazy day today. It was nice. I’ve been so busy for so long, it was weird being able to relax without feeling guilty.

image

Anyway, this is what I wore today!

image

I bought this skirt from danger field about 3 year ago, but never wore it because I was going through a very heavily lolita clothing inspired thing with the way I dressed, and literally wore a petticoat under everything (basically, if I couldn’t wear a petticoat under the dress/skirt it wouldn’t get worn)

image

Anyway, after years of this skirt sitting there being amazing, I finally decided to wear it!
