Take Flight

I like to have a top/dress with sleeves, because I find it a more flattering cut on me. Unfortunately, a lot of the club gear I’ve been buying doesn’t have sleeves.

This is my totally awesome solution:

Lace Date

I’ve been after a black lace top for summer dates for a while. It’s been surprisingly difficult to find, so I’ve turned to ever-faithful Etsy.

I seem to operate three different wardrobes. One is all floral dresses that I wear to work. The second is all jersey and track pants that I wear after work. And the third is some kind of modern/artsy/Melbourne/comfort collection that seems to be mostly conceptual and part of some dream capsule wardrobe that I never actually wear.

These are for option three:

Grey lady

Total impulse purchase. This dress is very simple and pretty, and I adore the full skirt. It could, however, turn out badly. The Chinese dressmakers had conflicting sizing information, so who knows if it will fit. But at this price, whatever.

Last weekend I went to Sydney for some antics with my brother. Of course I managed to fit in some shopping as well:

I collect blue and white stoneware to decorate my blue and white kitchen. I was in the basement of the lovely QVB building, and they had a whole blue and white wall! I was very restrained.

I went to the lovely Thomas Sabo flagship store in the QVB, and couldn’t resist adding to my bracelet. I am somewhat ashamed that I am one of those women, but oh well.

Clipped straight on my bracelet and off I went.

I bought a few more things that I am not able to link to online. I dream of a day when EVERYTHING is online.

I love idea2lifestyle. Their stuff is so out there but very wearable. I have a poncho and skirt from them that are on high winter rotation. They’ve just come back after a break, and these two new items caught my eye:
