Free as a Bird

Necklace: Asos (similar here)

I seem to be favouring the long sleeve dresses lately don't I? I think they're the perfect between season piece and can be dressed up for work with a blazer or down with a denim jacket for the weekend (or like, a super casual office).
The most heartbreaking thing has happened to me recently so I'm going to have a sook... my hair had been shedding like crazy (to the point it was driving others crazy) so I went in for a trim and the old school hairdresser (you know the ones who duck out for a cigarette every 30 minutes and have the most profound advice) promptly informed me I had so much heat damage to my hair it was snapping off. I love to straighten my hair and curl it and I've confessed my love for my ghd on many occasions. But that love will have to take a back seat now if I want to save my long locks from the damage I've caused *sobs*. Beyond cutting it all off (No thanks) I can only try a lot of treatments and trim as often as possible. I'll keep you all updated if I find a magical fix (Actual Harry Potter magic will be required) but until then, don't be sad when you see my hair in braids :(

Bargain of the Week

What: Sarcasm Slogan T-Shirt
Why You Need It: Because sarcasm is so funny and I'm telling your straight: adding a black and white t-shirt to your wardrobe is essential. It will go with everything and still add a little bit of flavour. Think of it as the salt and pepper of fashion.

A Change May Be Just Around The Corner

Sometimes it's all about black and white and the little details. I fell in love with this Pink Stitch Cami because of how versatile it is. It's a great cut, easy to wear tucked in or out (I almost never wear things untucked!) and the back makes me feel sexalicious. The shorts were a last minute, "I cannot do washing and I am sick of all these clothes" travel purchase from H&M in America. $10. I can't even. I wish I'd bought 6 pairs! I'm hoping the H&M's in Australia live up to the high UK and USA standards. Who else is Christmas Eve excited for the Pitt St Mall store to open in Sydney? There might be a quick trip to Melbourne before then though because I just can't wait!
This bracelet is an amazing piece of art I was lucky enough to win! It's stunning and the care taken to make it really makes it that much more precious. Check out Buddha to Buddha's website here.
And apologies for the distracted face, my niece was running around being her usual adorable, unignorable self!

Bonjour Chip Chop!

Dress: Chip Chop!, Belt: Asos, Shoes: Asos

I am utterly obsessed with this dress. OBSESSED. 
The moment I put it on I decided I never wanted to take it off. I don'even care that it creases easily; not even. I mean, it's hilarious, just look at it! 
I'd been eyeing it off for some time and unlike most things in my "To Buy" bookmarks tab (yes, I do have that) I never deleted it, I just kept waiting for the opportune moment and when it arrived I grabbed it and rode off into the sunset (aka shopping cart).
The shoes are another such find. Pom Poms? Hells yes. I love you Asos.

Bargain of the Week

What: Lovestruck Midi Skirt and Crop
From: Aliphia
Why You Need It: Because matching sets aren't going anywhere! They'll be just as big next season AND you get double the wearability because you can split it up and wear as separates #genius
Black, white and geometric; how have you not added it to your cart already?! Also, Aliphia is Australian owned, locally made and gorgeous.

10 People You Meet at Music Festivals

The festival season has started gaining momentum as the line ups for the next 6 months are released. In my youth (so last year) I was all for the festivals but now I am very particular about which festivals I'll go to... and some of those reasons are to avoid the below stereotypes ha ha ha 
FarFetch has made an excellent info-graphic that can both be your guide to which festivals to attend based on your persona and give you some styling tips to achieve your festival look.
Also, worth a bit of a giggle because it's so spot on! Did they miss any stereotypes?
I personally think "weird guy in morph suit or animal costume who wants to be friends with everyone" should have featured on here!
