Something Different

Don’t you hate it when you see someone (or multiple someones) walking around in the same clothes as you. I think everyone likes to feel that they are unique- I certainly do. Sometimes I feel my wardrobe is full of boring choices, so when I find clothes that I think are a bit of fun or are unusual, and that I don’t think everyone else will be wearing, I snap them up.

Ladies: can I get a “hell yes!” if you’re one of those girls who sees fashion trends in magazines, label lookbooks, in the streets and online, but it never translates when you try it on yourself?

Arm Party and Spring Racing

I’ve recently discovered a facet of the Australian fashion industry that I’m becoming slightly obsessed with: Spring Racing. For my international readers, our Spring Racing Carnival is a series of Thoroughbred horse races held annually during October and November.
