Day 35: 'All In' Series Features Pink (Not the Singer)

I decided to have a mini-series of 'All In's'. Yesterday blue, today pink. I'm going to do one-colour blocking for a week, culminating next Saturday in the ultimate of All In's, the jean tracksuit, the Canadian tuxedo (sorry Canadians, I have never been to Canada (although I did go past once) and so I have no idea if that is an insult, I am guessing it is). I have no intention of promising that I will make it any more appealing than it already isn't but I may just spice it up with what may arguably be the most radical pair of shoes in my towering-shoe-pillar-storage-thingy. Certainly something to look forward to.

My star sign said I should go on diet. It seems a little harsh to tell a twelfth of the population (if not more because October, I think, produces lots of either January Summer Fling or Cold Winter Night babies) to lose some weight! I have been organising my clothes stash according to the success I think I am going to have when I start what I am calling, instead, my wellness eating plan—I was going to do it before the stars ordained it so! I am putting all my crazy thrifted finds that 'don't quite fit' into a series of boxes that start at 'Maybe in a couple of kilos or so' to 'Um, I don't think you would have ever fitted into that, even when you were eight'. Phew! There are quite a few items I have been hiding away. If you see me go anywhere near a choccy biscuit please remind me of my obligation to you to be able to go as long as possible without presenting you with an outfit you have already seen, and that the only way to do that is to fit into these waiting gems. I need you to be strong for me, don't let me down. But just be careful because Librans don't like to be told what to do, and get a bit snarky when you take their choccy biscuits from them. This Libran anyway.

Thanks to my co-photo editor today, V2.

The Outfit
Top: Op-shopped/Thrifted (the wind really emphasised its bubble skirt qualities)
Skirt: Op-shopped/Thrifted (I think it was a bridesmaids skirt. It has been hand made and has the name of the particular maid it was for written on the inner facing: Jade. Thanks for the great skirt Jade!)
Necklace: Lovisa
Shoes: a shoe shop on Chapel Street (these shoes were my first wacky pair ever, and they awoke me to the joy of a crazy looking shoe. Hallelujah!)

Who wore it better? Getting linky today with:
Thrifters Anonymous

Visible Monday

still being[molly] and Lipgloss and Crayons


  1. Pink is a calming shade. Did you know they paint the Walls of Prison Cells Pink?, it actually makes you less aggressive and volatile looking at it. A man can never have enough Pink Shirts in his Wardrobe. (Or Yellow, Green, Purple, Orange................)

  2. Pink! You are wearing it beautifully. Jade's loss is your gain : > Thanks for linking up.

  3. phew! glad capricorns dont have to go on diet


  4. Do you know what sign Irene is, because she needs to eat more. I love pink, and you are rockin' the colour right down to those gorgeous shoes.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your feedback and comments. I read them all lovingly and try to respond to as many as I can. At the very least I go over and see where you have come from. Love it!

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
