Hello to my lovely readers! Picked up this dress down the coast yesterday and I couldn't wait to share it with you! I was shopping in Ally, which is known for copying certain aspects or prints of more well known brands. This dress reminded me so much of one on Urban Outfitters by Pins and Needles which I've lusted over foreverrrr, but I didn't want to fork out $70 for a dress I couldn't try on. Definitely think I hit the jackpot when I found this for $20! After looking at the Urban Outfitters version when I got home, it's not as close as match as I thought but its still pretty similar. To be honest I actually prefer the colours and sleeves on mine!

Dress - Ally (on sale $20), similar (here) at Urban Outfitters, Shoes - Betts
Although I know it's a total rip off to the total designers, I do love finding a good copy of a MinkPink dress or another expensive piece of clothing (cause lets face it, I buy so many clothes I can't afford it!) Another favourite store for this would be Valleygirl. 
Do you guys like finding a bargin like this?! 
Ps.. I'm trying really hard to stop buying patterned clothes! I promise!!

Welcome to the jungle

I couldn't believe it when I found this dress in shops! I had seen a similar bodycon version on Charissa Rae, and a shirt version on Amy Valentine, but both were sold out by the time I saw their posts. Of course, I loved the print. Check out the hat I got today from Rubi shoes! I've wanted a floppy hat for so long, but was a bit hesitant of getting a felt one as I thought it'd be too hot for spring. I've also ordered a natural straw colour one from their online store which I'm waiting to arrive.

Dress - Blossom (also at City Beach), Sandals - Betts, Hat - Rubi
It was so hot today that I was even too hot in this outfit, but that hat would be perfect for the beach.
Do you guys like it? What do you think of the print? Can't wait to hear from you :)

Topshop Lips in Brighton Rock

Hey lovelies, thought I'd do a post today on this lipstick that arrived the other day! I placed an order from Topshop, (opps), and bought quite a few things. I've always wanted to try a Topshop lipstick so I thought I'd add this to my order! I had to pay for shipping though, and just my luck, the next day a free shipping code for Australia came out :(
I looked at photos of it on other blogs, and it looked really different on everyone. I found it to be much more neon than I expected!
I don't wear lipstick all the time as my lips are so dry its just not pretty! This one applied really nicely and felt really nice on my lips, but after a while became really cracked. I found it stays nicely with a layer of lipbalm over/under it.

As I'm so pale I really find it nice to have some colour on my lips!
What do you guys think of the colour? What other makeup would you wear with it?

Golden elephants

Hey everyone! Have another post for you today, in my favourite dress! Don't know why I saved this post for so long. It's another beauty from MinkPink, one of my favourite brands, who make the most adorable dresses. And I love anything elephants! 
I usually wear it with a belt because it's more flattering, as the style is very smock like. I do love myself a smock dress but they really don't do your figure any favours! 

 Dress - MinkPink 'Pride Lands' Dress
The back's not the most flattering thing, especially with the belt, but if I'm at uni or something I'll wear a black cami underneath so it hides some of that white!
I usually pair it with a plain black bag and black sandals, as the pattern is so busy I don't like to draw attention away from it.
How would you style it?

Confessions of a shopaholic

Surprise Surprise.. I went shopping and bought more aztec! Just the one thing I didn't need! But I could't resist when I saw this in Glassons.. and it was on sale! 
I really better stop spending so much if I ever want to go overseas. But pretty clothes are so tempting!
I definitely admit that I'm a shopaholic! Good thing I work so much and never spend over $100 on an item of clothing!
How do you like the cream wall behind me? I went for a drive this morning and thought it looked perfect for a post, and a different look to my usual. It's so much easier to see what I'm wearing than if I'm standing in front of random greenery. 

Jacket - Glassons, Necklace - Rubi, Top - Sportsgirl, Bracelet - Lovisa, Skirt - Hipster
On my wish list on the moment is a black dress, preferably a shift dress. I find that's the only kind of item that goes with patterned jackets like this. 
How would you style this jacket? I'd love to hear from you!

Shades of purple

Hi lovelies, thought I'd do a post today on this cute ombre necklace I picked up from Diva for like $3 during a sale. I was so happy as I'd seen them when they were $40 and couldn't justify spending so much on a purple necklace! I love the style of it, it reminds me of the craft we used to do in primary school.  I love the fact that it's ombre too, and the purple shades are gorgeous. Today I just paired it with a plain black tee from Sportsgirl, but for a coloured necklace it can definitely be worn with lots of different styles. 

Necklace - Diva, Top - Sportsgirl

Moroccan print

Hey everyone! Before posting these photos, I thought about all the OOTD posts I've done so far. And realised I've worn some kind of print in every one of them. Oops! I'm obsessed I know! I love this jacket, I saw it on sites like Hello Molly and Esther, but it was so expensive! As much as I loved it, I wasn't sure how much wear I'd get out of it for $80. But when we were shopping in Melbourne I found it in a little boutique for like, $29! Bargin!
It was pretty cold today so I just wore it with black jeans and black sandals, but when the weather gets warmer I'll pair it with a black shift or smock dress. 

The colour is much brighter in real life, it looks a bit washed out in the photos because of the lighting. But the pattern is adorable! 
Today I went shopping and got some great new clothes and some nail polishes. I'll do a post on them later!

Prints, prints, prints

Hey guys! Just a quick post for you today to show off my new dress and shoes! I got the flatforms from Betts the other day and I love them, I'll do another post for you later to show you what they look like from the side. Sadly today my toenails were in no state to be photographed!
Also sorry about the really bad lighting in the photos, it was 6pm before I went out for dinner and because it was dark the photos look really pixelated :(
This dress arrived today from Ice, such a bargin it was only $30. It has the same material as one I liked from Dotti and is less than half the price!

Dress - Ice, Shoes - Betts
Tonight was really nice weather to be able to wear a dress, can't wait to wear it to uni as for a shift dress its super flattering! And as you can see I'm still loving my prints!
I didn't get a photo of my bag but I used my monochrome Sportgirl one. I'm on the hunt for a new plain black bag at the moment, I have so many studded ones and they just don't go with printed dresses like this!
I'm having the same problem with studded shoes too!
Does anyone else have the same issue?!

Bandana print

This morning I caught up with my beautiful friend Phoebe and went to Vinnies and then had a cute picnic in the park. I wore one of my favourite skirts, I got it from General Pants a while ago but I'm still in love with the print. The material also feels really nice, and it's an easy low fuss outfit which still looks stylish. 
Feels so good to be able to wear summer clothing everyday! As much as I love jeans, it's so much easier to find outfits for warmer weather for uni and what not.



Top - Glassons, Skirt- Don't Ask Amanda via General Pants, Shoes - Betts, Bag - Colette 
Although our Vinnies trip was less than successful, we had such a nice day, the weather was 27 degrees and was so nice being outside for a change!
I'm thinking I might do a post soon of the best clothes I've found in Vinnies, would you guys be interested in looking at that?

The cutest iPhone case ever

Hi everyone! I finally joined the 21st century last week and got my first Iphone! I was way too excited to finally have a new phone, and spent the week looking up phone cases online. Etsy, Ebay, everything, you name it. I looked over on Society 6 and found some beauties! They had free shipping that day too so how could I resist. This one was my favourite, and when it arrived I was not disappointed. The colours are so bright and the pattern is amazing. All over, a very happy customer and I would definitely recommend having a look over on their site!
iPhone case - Society 6
What do you think of the case? Do you love paisley and aqua as much as I do?                                                                                                                                                              post signature

OOTD - Denim and Monochrome

Hey everyone! The weather's been lovely lately so thought I'd do another post for you today :) I went to my friend Amie's for dinner, and just wore something casual yet nice. I love this denim top from Glassons, half my wardrobe consists of denim pieces of clothing, but when I saw this I couldn't resist! Its a nice change from denim button-up shirts, and I love the pockets on the front. The only bad thing is that it gets so crushed! I promise you I did iron it! Also loving monochrome at the moment, I can't get enough of this bag from Sportsgirl!

Top - Glassons, Jeans - General Pants, Shoes - Rubi Shoes, Bag - Sportsgirl, Watch - Queen Victoria Markets, Rings - Lovisa, Necklace - Lovisa

I'll try to do another post again soon! I'm starting to get in the habit of posting and I'm loving it! Can't wait to get more followers and check out everyones blogs.
I've got an order from Sportsgirl and ASOS coming in the mail so I'll do posts of those soon.

Korres Lip Butter in Quince

I have wanted to get my hands on one of these babies for so long! After realising ASOS sold them I couldn't resist. I bought "Quince", which is a really nice pink. It looks way brighter in the tub than on my lips. When its on its like my natural lip better.. Except way better. 
Its such a good product for someone like me who has very dry lips, constantly! I love lipsticks but I find they dry my lips out so much, so its nice to have a bit of colour and have hydrated lips!
The only criticisms I would have is that the tub is so much smaller than I expected for some reason. Also, although the packaging is so cute it's kind of annoying having to dip your finger in it, I much prefer tubes. 

Ps.. the colour looks way brighter on my lips in real life! My camera didn't want to cooperate today!
Have you tried the Korres Lip Butters?
