Many Good Things

Fashion is essentially about perception. It changes the way you look and think about things. Much like this cat. When I first saw the feline on the street I think I was shocked by its appearence, but now I actually find it quite adorable. Fashion has this effect on me all the time.
 Today is my tenth day of freedom since I finished the last of my assesments towards my degree. While I studied in those last few weeks and failed at keeping up with my own blog, I pretty much kept on top of reading everyone elses on my bloglovin feed. (Follow the link on the toolbar above to add me to your own reading list.) In doing so, maybe as a result of some effective procrastination, I managed to collect a good amount of inspiration. Inspiration for DIY projects as well as some pieces to add to my own wardrobe. And now that I am free to roam and hunt and create, let me tell you, many good things are happening......

Here's a sample of the inspiration I collected which should give you a sneak peak into what I've found and what I'm making. Unfortunately I'm in Whitianga again with not much internet plus I left my camera cord behind again!! But never fear I will be back in Welly this time next week and will upload all my new treasures....

Almost There

I am so close to being free. In the next five days I will complete the final assessments of my degree. I'm sure at the end of it I'll have something more insightful to say, but for now it's just study, study study. The end is nigh peps, I can taste it...almost...just five more days, just five more days...

p.s. good luck to everyone else in their final days as well...we're almost there!! xx

Will you always love me?

On Saturday I had another 21st to go to as well as making an appearence at a beer pong competition. I wanted to go for something completly different from Friday night and my friend Nicole recently mentioned wanting to attempt the popular bow bun. Feeling inspired I thought I'd give it a go myself....and these are the results...

I teamed my bow bun up with this second hand top that is just as striking. I love wearing such a bold block of colour like this one. Underneath I wore my chiffon shorts from Kmart. Having pockets for once on a night out was so handy! My necklace is an old gem from the childhood jewellary box and my shoes are the ones my sister sent me which I featured in an earlier post.

Top: Second hand
Shorts: Kmart
Necklace: From my Childhood
Shoes: From my Sister

As for my night, it was pretty good. Although the Beer Pong competition I went to was actually a dress up so I think a few people just thought I was playing along hahahahaha xx

All I Ever Wanted

 This is what I wore to my flatmate Ella's 21st party on Friday night. I borrowed the dress from my friend Hannah. It was 100% silk and felt amazing to wear. I was so grateful to wear a dress that made me feel so good. My shoes I invested in for my own 21st and I always relish the right oppurtunity to whip them out. I also shoved a paper flower crown in my hair that I picked up for .70c from Sportsgirl in Australia and Bob's your uncle I was ready to go...

 The party was a lot of fun and the speeches were so good! It really was a treat to wear such a beautiful dress and I guess it proves the benefits of investing in quality. As for Ella, it was her real birthday today, so a big Happy Birthday to Ella and I hope you had a magical day xx

Dress: Madame Hawke (borrowed from my friend Hannah)
Shoes: Seventh Wonderland
Paper flower crown: SportsGirl
Clutch: Vintage from my Grandma
