Day 273: Credit Card Abuse

Coming into the PayPal account? Thirty-two cents from Adsense, two dollars ninety-four from Adzerk. Going out of the Paypal account? Very different story. I had myself a little spree.

From Choies: two pairs of jeans. What is wrong with me? I have so many pairs of jeans and I love them all but I have to loose weight to wear any of them, and I won't be surprised if the same doesn't apply to these. Don't jeans just have the most amazing personalities though? They're like a bunch of oddball friends. From SheInside: three dresses, a pair of mock-leather shorts in yellow, a pair of dungarees and a bomber jacket. Two dresses were unfortunately no longer available, so I swapped them for a woollen coat and a jumper. But the big question I need answered is how on earth do these two companies sell clothes so cheap. *Opinion unsolicited, I'm just being opinionated* It's mad cheap. I will be interested to see the quality, and I am sure I have done someone out of a reasonable livelihood. It won't happen often. I just fancied something new for a change. And from various Tourism industry people I also bought an American-Visa-you-have-when-you're-not-having-a-visa, a night time tour of the Neon Museum in Vegas (so excited), a day tour of LA and Chris Angel's Believe with Cirque de Soleil tickets at the Luxor. Roll on holiday, but no more spending 'til then!

Who wore it better?

  1. That's some impressive shopping and I had a quick look at She Inside and decided I better go do something else or I would have given you a run for your money.

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…
