I heart Tumblr

Did I mention my latest love? It’s Tumblr. My BFF informative time sink. For the uninitiated: you subscribe to blogs relevant to your interests, then your feed updates with content from those blogs. Not a revolutionary idea at all, but the incredible community of people with blogs that I love is what makes it so addictive and interesting. Highly recommended.

This shirt combines my twin loves of black and internet content:

I already have one of this skirt (impulse purchase during post-work retail therapy) and it is outstanding. Soft, lightweight, comfortable, great cut, POCKETS. I lived in it when we were in Melbourne last week. I must have another.

I ummed and ahhed about this shirt during the aforementioned retail therapy, but it did look good and I accidentally left my other new black shirt in Melby.

One of the trickiest things about buying clothes outside of your expected gender is navigating a whole other world of cuts. Weirdly, men’s pants/shorts fit me fairly well straight off the rack. This seems totally counter-intuitive, given that I have been amply provided in the hip/booty department. What I find men’s items are missing though is stretch fabrics and flat fronts. Everything in life should be stretch fabrics. Just saying.

Anyway, the awesome side to a bit of genderfluidity is being able to buy whatever looks like it might work from either gendered section.

I thought these could potentially work well:

I Never Learn

I lament sometimes about that troublemaker Past Mali, and how she is always screwing me over (never getting enough sleep, running up HECS debts, spending all her pay). Sometimes she tries to be helpful, and sends me advice from the past through the blog – don’t buy any more denim skirts, stop buying Docs.

However, it seems Present Mali is just as belligerent as her predecessor.

Behold, gorgeous, on sale Docs:

If I can break these ones in successfully, it’s going to pave the way for the most amazing sexy Doc boots I have ever seen. Keep tuned …

Cyber Essentials

My awesome Dad has a theory that anything that is advertised as ‘essentials’ is always the furthest from essential.

This neck cowl is expensive, has ridiculous shipping and serves no practical purpose, but I really want it! It will add a wicked cyber element to any outfit. Shhh, I’ll buy what I want.

Pro Pants

After several years of not wearing pants, the pendulum has swung soooo far the other way. The floral dresses are going into storage (I bought vacuum bags), and I’m actively buying pants and shorts. These look very cool:
