Day 335 – RIP this shirt ITS LAST WEAR EVER!

Only one month to go so time to start the great purge!
This shirt was purchased in H&M outside Toronto during my big Canada & USA tour in 2008. I had bought a lovely grey jumper that needed a button up shirt and collar under it and this was the chosen shirt. The combo went on many journeys together and plane rides across the continent then, upon returning to Australia, to work, with various pairs of pants and pencil skirts. This is the first piece to be purged after being afraid of throwing anything out in case I reached the end of the year with nothing to wear but my old school uniform. Yikes!

We felt a menswear catalogue photo shoot with a retrospective theme shot in the reflection of a safety mirror would be a fitting farewell… For some reason! We may have got carried away in a creative moment … But the menswear look works well with my navy Esprit pants. For a girlie touch I finished the outfit with a pink belt and pink sandals.

Tomorrow I need to make room in my cupboard so that the dressing up can come out of the spare room and into my cupboard and the spare room cupboard can officially belong to my boyfriend (and his seven shirts…I may be being mean … There might be 8). Wish me luck for the purge and let’s hope I find 31 brand new outfits to get me from here to 2013!

Day 334 – Hero Belt or Fashion No-No?

I had a big hunt through my belt box the other day looking for a different belt and came across this one. Just for something different I thought it would look interesting on this dress.
I hoped it would be the funky hero of the outfit … Did I succeed or did I break some fashion rules?


Day 333 – another bite of the berry for this skirt!


Day 332 – Silver Screen Resort Wear


Day 331 – Remashing a fav look – Lavender & Mac Red


Day 330 – Fluoro Revival is Mine!!

My Cotton On man shirt and Sportsgirl shorts were the combo I needed to accompany my red Birks.
I knew a lot of walking was required to take my mum and my aunt shopping … But we did take a couple of breaks.
I couldn’t miss this photo opportunity!


The highlight was finding something I could buy in Fluoro! I saw a kid wearing these shoes the other day and I asked her mother if they came in big sizes … Well a little bit bigger than kids’ anyway! Here they are!

I have been allowed to buy shoes this year as I had to throw so many pairs out last year so shoes were my key to not missing out on Fluoro! Hurray!!

Day 328 – Friday Day Wear

Totally forgot to upload my work outfit on Friday and was so excited because I wasn’t wearing any black so here it is a day late!
I started with my hand-me-down safari pants from mum and wanted to wear my red Camper Mary-Janes. That meant a navy or red belt and a jumper for cold air-con at work that wasn’t pink or black …

Any excuse to wear this navy Gap cardi – I love it! And this belt from Old Navy had been a favourite since the day I bought it.
