..:: little white dress ::..

Summer is here; days are growing long while nights grow tantalisingly shorter. I'm thinking lazy cocktails on balconies and late night beach rendezvous need some appropriate attire. Presenting...*drumroll*...the LWD aka Little White Dress. Yes! White isperhaps a little trickier to pull off than the black that is our usual go to. Yet when done right, it's classy, confident and will effortlessly take you from the beach to the bar!!

Here are my recent white dress purchases:

L to R: MINKPINK (eBay) criss-cross dress, thrifted floral netted dress, Wish (eBay) crochet dress.

Can't wait to get some good wear into these babies in the warmer days ahead!! I wore the one in the middle to the Suzuki Night Market with Em and Miriam last Wednesday, might put up some pics for the next post :)


Oh and has everyone (in Australia I guess) voted for their fave songs in the Triple J hottest 100?? If not, get on it HERE.
I myself have voted, here is my various selections:

Lonely Boy - The Black Keys
Under Cover of Darkness - The Strokes
Velociraptor! - Kasabian
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N - Noah and the Whale
Video Games - Lana Del Ray
Two Way Street - Kimbra
Dead-Beat - King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Mermaids - Jinja Safari
Library Pictures- Arctic Monkeys
Part Time Believer - Boy & Bear


All this music is making me want to go to a music festival. Really wanted to go to Pyramid over New Year's but instead I'll be in Hepburn Springs with the fam, which I hope will be good! I don't get to spend a lot of time with them these days, this is a rare opportunity where all of us have time off work :)

What's everyone else doing for NYE? Anyone going to any music festivals so I can stalk your photos and such?

DIY-inspired jewellery!


I have been seeing all this awesome strings and ropes and beads stuff in the fashion world - I think DIY and friendship jewellery is really making a comeback!!
Definitely planning on making some colourful bracelets and necklaces like these ones!
They'd make great xmas presents that's for sure.
Em bought a cute handmade bracelet from the Suzuki night markets we went to tonight.
On another note can't believe it's the end of the year...2011 what happened?

Thrifted from Salvos store coral top, beige skirt and brown mary janes
Forever New/Equip/Diva bracelets and armour ring
Beginning Boutique red/gold ring

Ooops. It's been another 3 weeks and I haven't been blogging.
Damn I'm over making excuses for it, let's just say I'm lazy. Heh.

Well first thing; thank you to Beginning Boutique for this lovely YSL-esque ring. It's got a massive red rock in it. BB boutique knows what makes a girl happy. Hehe.

Went thrifting with my lovely uni friends Jaz, Em, Alex and Molly.
Unfortunately didn't think to take any snaps of us, but my outfit was just a black tshirt and denim shorts,
as you know thrifting involves trying on 5731 items of old-people-smelling garments, so...y'know.

We had a little competition going - who could buy the most with $30.
Pretty much every one of us went over the budget, but I reckon Molly won, with 8 items at ~$40.
Nothing like a bit of stingy competition between uni students!!

Anyway I'm rambling and off track. But basically this outfit post, which was done indoors
cos I cbf going outside, consists of items from the Salvation army store on Sydney Rd.
And it cost me basically the price of a lunch and coffee. Win!

Christmas is fast approaching and asjkfhdkjgh present shopping and stuff is DA WERST.
I've been considering shopping online for gifts this year.
Also it's my best friend Evan's birthday tonight, I wanted to post his present on here but then I remembered that he reads my blog occasionally so I can't. PARTY TONIGHT SO GOTTA GOOOOO.

Ps. Sorry for the verbal diarrhea. I write too much and have to many thoughts.

Ppps. Come say hello to me on twitter! @teeandfame :)

beginning boutique: it's beachin'!

Beginning Boutique has just launched their second Spring lookbook entitled It's Beachin', and boy does it make me wanna hit the sand and the surf. Soooo good. Seriously the bright block colours, bare legs, sparkles, baggy tees/tanks and naturally voluminous hair makes me yearn for those carefree Summer days we haven't had so far!!
Let's hope the weather heats up for us in Melbourne, and soon. I wanna get beachin'!

ALSO: Beginning Boutique is giving away a $500, yes $500 It Girl wardrobe!!
Don't forget to "like" B.Boutique on Facebook to enter this amazing competition!! Too good.



Market HQ: "Oh You Pretty Things"

“Taking a night on the town from daylight to dusk and beyond… A sultry hot mess covered from head to toe in washed out brights, textured detail and exaggerated prints. Strapless, sleeveless, side-splits and sequins. Layers of luxe lace and sensational sheer lengths complete a night of never-ending hotness.”

Model: Milli @ Agency Models
Photography and Creative Direction: Kaycie Smith
Hair and Makeup: Desiree Wise @ Network Agency
Styling: Georgie Hilton

I adore this new lookbook from Market HQ.
I'd have to say it's my favourite so far!

Featuring brands such as MINKPINK, Somedays Lovin', We Are Handsome, Stylestalker,
UNIF and Finders Keepers, seriously these outfits are what I want to be rocking this Aussie summer. And it better be a good one, I miss you sun.

I bought Tony Bianco clogs, a pair of orange cropped pants from Valleygirl, the Evil Twin red studded dress I was lusting over in the post I did last week, MINKPINK cut out shirt dress and a Somday's Lovin lace-up back croptop all in the last two weeks. WTF. My bank account wants to kill me now...

Anyway, clicky click to SHOP MARKET HQ :)

Sketchy business.

So. My exams finished yesterday. I'd like to say that I ran out of the Royal Exhibition Building screaming and waving my arms wildly about, then partied all night and drank til I forgot all of the stuff I'd crammed in...

But what happened in reality is I sat at home, and sketched. Oh I'm such a hardcore teenager. Hahaha.

Anyway, hope you enjoy these! I've got some pretty pictures for you in my next post, and I'm in the middle of actually organising free shit for my followers. Wew.

ALSO; I entered this mad competition to win a trip to LA, I had to style an outfit and here it is...tada...

Please click here and 'like' my link via Facebook, would mean a lot to me :)


PS. Follow me on TWITTER cos I'm totez getting on that hash-tag shit and @tagging thing... #abouttimeyouloser


Yay! Another post, I told you guys I was back for good!
I had two exams today - Biology: Genetics and Evolution and Music Performance 2D, which was a piano recital.
Really dreading Physics: Life Sciences on Thursday :(

Anyway, now that I'm back to blogging I've also been mentally making a list of items that I need to go shopping for. Top of the list is pretty much EVERYTHING from Evil Twin's Summer 2011/12 Collection
"By Way Of Fallen Idols".
Jodie you're a genius, please marry me!!!

My wardrobe this season has been quite lacking of the kind of primal colours in this collection - earthy rust, fire-engine red, black (I know, shocking!), citrus yellow and various shades of snakey green/grey. Plus I am drooling over those lattice-y cut outs, drapey silhouettes and graphic prints.

Well you know what? I think it's time I got my grunge on again this Summer. Spend a lot of time in General Pants the other day, and I know ASOS also stocks some Evil Twin, so really I have no excuse not to get my grubby little hands on some platinum evil! :)


PS. Anyone know where I can get a pair of flatforms?

PPS. Are you a social media addict? Want to earn some $$$ doing it? Join @ChurpAU with me and together we can earn some pocket money for a rainy day!
Get on it!! :)
