Let's compound the problem!

I couldn't resist an etsy sale....someone stop me!

50s red dress

40s navy dress - I adore this one

70s secretary dress

Down and downer

I had an absolutely Woe.Is.Me. type night last night. In spite of my weight loss attempts, I appear to have gained weight. And I only got half the rent I had expected for this month from my property (due to Feb only being 28 days I only got one payment instead of two). Which is an issue with my $1k bill from the lawyer hanging over my head. Sigh.

But enough moping.

My decal arrived for my laptop

So crinkly!
AH top
CR cardi
Stella for Target grey jeans
(I couldn't be bothered dressing up for work today)

I do love this cami but it crinkles as soon as I put it on.

Back to the 40s

I hate Mondays. I want to be back to sunday with my kitty watching trash tv (Law and Order SVU and Pretty Little Liars).

Poor little three legged kitty

Vintage 40s dress - love this, so darn swishy


I had to photobooth these pics - damn bedroom light is broken. I really need a Nikon 7000. Wonder if my financial planner would approve?

Hair attempt No. 1

I am now trying to get my hair right for the 60s Mad Men style I need to match the dress for next weekend's wedding...

So - my first attempt to follow the youtube video, which involves curling the hair first for some body.


Ah, so stylish:)


Woah! Hair!


The finished look

Well, it turned out ok. My issue is my long hair - it's hard to get the curlers right to the end cause my arms aren't long enough. So when I did the french twist at the back, and the teasing to get the height, my hair is just too long to be workable. Plus my thick fringe means the beehive part starts further back. Hmmm...must get practicing.

Lace and Denim

No, I didn't wear lace and denim together this time;)

More outfits and purchases (minor - am very broke).

$5 bird print scarf in Myer - bargain!

Cue skirt (it's navy)
Topshop tights
Forever New brogues
Stella for Target lace top

New ring from Sportsgirl - wish it fitted my middle finger. Damn you fat fingers!

Unknown brand top

Super shoulders

Love these shoes - bad blisters and fell on my butt though!

Cape for later - Topshop

Finally! A new bar arrives..

After 8 months of boring old pubs, wagga finally has a sophisticated bar...the Thirsty Crow. Well, it's actually a microbrewery but they do serve wine. It is hideously busy, which just goes to show people in Wagga have been dying for somewhere to go.

The pizza was amazing...

Vego pizza - the Unemployed Scarecrow

Dessert - Nutella rocky road calzone and banana caramel pizza

Beer, glorious beer

We won't mention later in the night when I fell over coming into a club after just proclaiming my sobriety to the bouncers. Le Sigh.

Love this AH bow ring!

Greetings from Bathurst

This is what happens when I am away from home...stuck here in Bathurst for work. I internet shop. What else is there to do alone in a hotel room?

Etsy - animal rings on a necklace that can be removed and worn as rings

Laptop decal - my boss has the plain Snow White one, so I went for Nerdy Snow White

Saw this on a fellow blogger, and even though it isn't my style I had to have it - Urban Outfitters

Another Etsy find for only $25 - will look cute with a pencil skirt
