Kiss A Frog

So I'm going in to my saved up blog posts today because the weather has been horrendous and I haven't gone anywhere thats required a nicer outfit than leggings and a hoodie haha

I wore this outfit to a children's birthday party and was very out of place with the rest of the adults. Thats always the way though. Whenever I feel very appropriately dressed, I seem to end up sticking out like a sore thumb (a cute & pink themed sore thumb though). The kids enjoyed my outfit though which was sweet.

I love this sweater so much! It's by Marcs Babydoll. What happened to Marcs's Babydoll range? It was just full of adorable candy coloured things. Does it still exist? I still find Babydoll things at the Salvos but they're mostly never in my size. If you know whats happened to them, OR if you have any Marcs Babydoll knit sweaters in a size Large or XL and want to get rid of them, let me know!

Plaid Princess


Hey kittens! I wasn't planning on blogging until I decide what I want to do with my blogs layout/design, but I went out with Sam on the weekend and I didn't want this outfit to go to waste haha

I'm dying to fix up my blog and I don't know where to start. I've just been mucking around with the settings and I've got it in a way that I can tolerate for now, but I think I need some professional help haha If anyone has any reccomendations on web designers or someone that could help a gal out, let me know!

Sam has been trying to get serious about being my outfit photographer which is so cute. We still goof off when we have a photo sesh though and I don't see that ever changing.

I love this brooch so much! It just feels so old timey but I got it in New York last year! Its by Marc Jacobs and I got it in his store in Vegas for $10 or so. I always thought his accessories were all priced like what they are here in David Jones, but in the US all these quirky knick knacks in his stores were so cheap! You know those lipstick pens he has? They're like $5! And people sell them on ebay for around $!

I'm currently obsessed with these boots! I've been looking for a simple ankle boot like this with no embellishments or buckles and it felt like I would never find what I was picturing. I needed something with a low/no heel because I've come to terms that I will never be a heel person and its more practical for me to wear flats and finding an ankle boot that has no heel as well as no fancy crap on it is a mighty hard task. I eventually went in to Harris Scarfe and found a almost perfect pair of heeled boots and it turns out that they had an identical pair without a heel! PRAISE YOU, HARRIS SCARFE! To think, I walked in to look at cutlery and walked out with some shoes I didn't think existed haha

Aussie Curves - Denim

YAY FOR DENIM! I couldn't wait for this challenge so heres something I prepared earlier! haha
I basically live in my denim jacket in the cooler months so for this challenge I didn't want to show you that when I pretty much wear that all the time anyway  so when I bought this vest, I snapped up some photos right away and saved them for this (is that sad? Whatever. I come prepared!).

I'd been looking absolutely everywhereeeeeee for a moto style denim vest and only found things in ugly colours/tiny sizes/weird cuts/unnecessary studs and embellishments on the back and front, etc. And then while rummaging through some sale racks at Glue, I found it! Like a gift from above, it came to me. Perfect colour, good size/cut and no unnecessary studding or embellishments! Perfect!

Oh! and these shoes! I got these for an absolute bargain at the Windsor Smith outlet because they were 'damaged' but the damage was just an easily cleanable scuff on the side of one shoe. SOLD!

SoOooOooo glAmmmm haha

Aussie Curves - Nature

First thing I thought of for this weeks nature challenge? Bambi!

I just made it for this weeks challenge and I'm going to be straight up... I don't have much to say today haha

This dress is actually technically a nightie but its too cute to just be worn to bed. Every time I've worn it out, I've gotten at least 5 or six compliments on it. Its probably my fave dress that I own

Jacket: Crossroads via Savers
Leggings: Big W

Aussie Curves - Song

I've had this outfit lined up for this week because it gives me really strong love vibes. Now hear me out!

When I first pieced this shirt and skirt together I felt some serious nostalgia and missed being in Italy. The print on the skirt, the crisp white mixed with neutral accents. It just feels so romantic and gives me 'Summertime 1958 in Roma' vibes.

So what song is this outfit vibing to?...

Dean Martin - Volare

I swear this song and this outfit together make me get butterflies thinking about when Sam and I were in Rome and I just want to go back right now!

Seeing as though I got all sappy about this, my handsome fella just had to make an appearance.

Skirt: no name/tag via Salvos

Sam and I got married on the 4th of May (cue the Star Wars jokes) and I couldn't be happier! Everything was amazing and I can't wait till I get the photos and video from the day! I shared a few photos from my phone on instagram that you guys can check out, but otherwise, you'll just have to wait until the photographic magicians at Duuet have finalised their brilliance.

So, I'm a bit of a dill. I completely forgot I had taken these photos in summer! I can't wait to wear this muscle tee again. Its currently Autumn in Melbourne but the weather is unseasonably warm but nowhere near as warm as I'd like it to be right now.

Usually in the summer Fonzie gets to come into the house a lot more and he has a snooze on the tiles. Whenever he's inside, I make sure to try and take a selfie with him haha

Doesn't turn out too well though :p

Aussie Curves: Body Con

This weeks Aussie Curves challenge is body con. I was really excited about this because I'm all about a VBL but I looked in my wardrobe and realised that after selling most of the things I'd owned because they either didn't fit anymore/I needed money to fund things for my wedding, I had no body con things left. All I have is fit & flare dresses (which I still love) and no body con! ughhhhh!
But then I remembered, my cousins wedding!

I don't have many photos from the day but I was sure to get Sam to snap a couple of outfit photos for me. I can't wait tip they get their photos and video from the day! 

It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. Just look at them! I cried during the whole ceremony because I'm such a sap haha

Some ducks crashed the ceremony. The cutest little wedding crashers you could ever want.

So the thing about wog weddings is that you have a party before the party which means 2 outfits! 
In the morning all the bride or grooms family go to the bride or grooms house and have a big brunch feast with all kinds of meats and potatoes and general woggy foods and lots of drinks all around and when its time to go to church (or the ceremony, however you wanna do it) we all shuttle off, they get married and then its another party at the reception.
Aaaaand this was my first outfit for the morning. 
I'll need to bust these dresses out more often. They're so fab!

1st Outfit
Dress: Anthea Crawford
Shoes: Kmart

2nd Outfit
Dress: Blue Illusion, via Salvos
Shoes: Novo

Pre School

You ever get that feeling that you look like some sort of character after you've chosen your outfit for the day? I do. Most of the time.
Todays character, Pre School teacher!

Something about the primary colours and the shapes in the dress just give me good vibes.
Im just kind of bummed that I didn't have a matching petticoat to make the skirt pop even more.

I found this bag at the Salvos and almost died. It was that cute Miu Miu cat print thats been replicated over and over on this teeny tiny bag and I just had to have it! When I opened it up to see just how much I could fit in there, I noticed the ASOS tag on the inside.. SCORE! 

I need more vintage dresses like this! I pretty much strictly buy vintage dresses from eBay and thrift stores, not 'vintage stores' (because they're far too expensive for me), so its pretty limiting because I not only want certain styles of dresses, but they also need to be in size fat too.

Where are your fave places to find vintage dresses?
