Day 256: The Hot Tamale Train

When I am right, I am just right! Sorry to come over so humble. Not! But when, at the beginning of I'm-not-even-open-to-argument-ly the BEST year ever, in the history of everness, of So You Think You Can Dance, I said that Aaron and Jasmine should win it, I was right. They should. I am not sure if they will. I think we have one week to go for that. Or, I could Google it. But I won't. But they should. Saying that, Fik-shun and Amy are sensational. This season brings tears to my eyes with it's beauty. It's like puppies. You think that you could never have a puppy as precious and as much loved as that totally adored first puppy. You almost don't want to get another in case comparison kills all possibility of love, but the next one wins your heart in her own mad way. Thank goodness. Otherwise I would not be able to watch So You Think You Can Dance ever again after this year.

For those who didn't, couldn't or wouldn't (what is wrong with you??) watch, here are the links to the very best, in my humble opinion, of the night. Jasmine and Fik-shun showing that a height difference is not an excuse with a Travis contemporary routine. Jasmine choosing out of her comfort zone for dancer's choice and hip-hopping on the bike I want to get. (That reminds me, must go bike-shopping.) Aaron and Melinda making tap talk. Fik-shun one-upping Psi. Fik-shun and Twitch—I'm not bothering to even explain what is good-times-infinity about that combination—watch for the 'old-man walk. And Street Fik-shun and Tap Aaron doing old-school Broadway, with a conveyor belt. Good luck to you all—you all deserve to be America's (and everyone else in the world that is watching's) Favourite Dancer!

The Outfit
Tag-in, Tag-out Project in play, with one item each day carried to the next
Dress (Tag-in): Op-shopped (and yes, there are two little button holes right in an awkward spot that come out on film quite predominantly—something is obviously missing from this dress!)
Tights: Retail
Cuff (Tag-out): Op-shopped

Photographer de Jour: Moi

Who wore it better?

  1. I've already seen the end so I'll be quiet and just say that I loved Jasmine!! Gorgeous, legs like Cyd Charisse (did someone tell her that), and so strong. And Fik-shun - so cute, so charismatic. He stole the limelight from Twitch.

    Now the outfit, the buttons are in a very odd place, unless you like that kind of attention. But really, the shoes should be getting all the attention, and I wonder if I can do that to some old shoes.

  2. I don't have a TV anymore. Well that isn't true...we got rid of our cable about 6 months ago and now only watch Netflix or certain series. I used to be addicted to SYTYCD when it was on though.

    I would love to see a close-up of your necklace. It is flowers?

    Also the tights are cool.


    1. It is flowers. I keep meaning to try making my own. I love it, I've heard of this netflix thing but haven't got my head around it - don't think we have it out in the backwaters here.

  3. So you must go Bike Shopping? Hmmm

    1. Don't make me use your full name here in a high pitched tone of warning/pleading!!!!!

  4. such a pretty dress and the detail on the the IC shoes is immense! Thanks so much for linking up to Passion For Fashion, i hope to see you tomorrow! xx

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…
