OOTD: all smocked up.

Take a bloated fat day and combine it with one of the most popular looks of the season, and what you get is comfortable style. You also give yourself free rein to eat too much. I’m talking about the smock. Dress or top, it’s fast taking over from cut out shoulders and off shoulder everything. ...

OOTD: off the shoulder. But not.

The off the shoulder trend has been around for a while now, and it’s taken me until very recently to get on board. Not because I don’t like it but because every time I’ve tried something on I’ve just known that wearing anything that even hinted at restricted arm movement would piss me off. I ...

OOTD: Help! I’m addicted to stripes.

Um, yeah, not even joking. I counted, and I have sixteen striped dresses of various styles {maxi, T shirt dress, midi, shift, etc} and eleven striped tops {T’s, tanks, knits, etc}. That’s A LOT of stripes, and I wonder if I’m even more of a creature of habit than I realise. I mean, I know ...

OOTD: kimono kapers.

Once upon a time I bought myself a kind of lacey fringed black kimono from Kmart, and in my head I could so clearly see how good it would look. It languished in my wardrobe, being tried on a few times but never somehow living up to those visions I had seen in my head. ...

OOTD: all hail the T shirt dress

How have I never owned a T shirt dress before now? I’ve thought long and hard to be sure, but no, I don’t remember ever owning something that is unmistakably just a very long T shirt. And can I just say that, with converse sneakers and maybe a denim jacket if you need it, it’s ...

OOTD: Spring has {finally} sprung

Skipping out on half the Winter should mean that I don’t need to be so excited now that it’s finally starting to warm up ever so slightly. I mean, I’m still sporting a very impressive tan ffs. But the truth is that it was brutally hard going from a heatwave to freezing cold and I ...

Style Icon :: NICOLE KIDMAN

If there’s one celeb who has had a huge style transformation and is now a red carpet standout it’s Nicole Kidman. I don’t know why but for a long time I wasn’t a fan of hers. I didn’t mind some of her movies but just couldn’t seem to like her. Maybe it was the Tom ...

Cake, coleslaw, and polka dots.

Guys I’m quietly freaking out that it’s almost September. Child number four celebrated his first Holy Communion on the weekend. One last chance for me to do the massive at home Communion party where I spend two days preparing, cleaning, shopping, and cooking for all the people I’ve invited and have no idea where I’m ...

OOTD: classic vibes

There are times for pineapple print dresses and then there are times for the classic’s that you return to time and again: stripes, denim, and anything black. Lately I’ve been going back to the classics and rediscovering the things that stand the test of time. Things like: denim: jackets, skirts, & jeans shoes: converse sneakers ...

Talking brows. Again.

Another year rolls on by and I’m still obsessed with my brows. Or lack of. Last years cosmetic tattooing wasn’t quite the success I had hoped for. Full microbladed brows done in January were touched up in March due to the expected initial loss of pigment {at no charge}, but then needed another touch up ...
