So I dyed the bottom of my hair purple. I got accepted into a Professional Writing and Editing course so to celebrate being a full time student I dyed my hair and got my nose pierced (they had to put a stud in it to begin with but once it’s all healed I’m going to change it to a little ring). I’m reverting back to my teen years when I used to dye my hair silly colours every week and had my nose and lip pierced. Not having to worry about what an employer is going to say about my hair colour is so nice! I think I might eventually dye all of my hair purple. The sun wasn’t very bright so my hair doesn’t look quite as vibrant in these photos as it does it reality, I’ll include an Instagram photo that gives you a better idea of what it looks like in real life. I’m so happy to be a student again!
jacket: Sportgirl, dress: Topshop, shoes: K-Mart, lipstick: Lime Crime – Airborne Unicorn (does anybody know a good dupe for this?! I love the colour but Lime Crime have some dodgy practices and I’d rather not support their business), sunglasses: Karen Walker. And in the interest of honesty and transparency in blogging, I did get Tom to Photoshop out a pimple on my chin in a couple of these photos.
I think it’s time to buy some new brogues! I bought these guys from K-Mart for something like $15 and they are surprisingly one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I’ve ever owned, I wear them so often.
Here’s the Instagram photo that shows my hair colour a bit better.
jacket: Mod Cloth, skirt: my friend Brodie’s garage sale but originally New Look, shoes: Nine West, t-shirt: Fourth Floor Print Shop
Hey buddies! Last weekend I finally got around to getting Tom to take some outfit photos for me to post. I’ve heard a lot of (valid) Wednesday Addams comments about this dress but for me it’s the perfect dream Courtney Love circa 1993 kinderwhore dress that I’ve been looking for since I was 13 years old. I was so excited when I saw it online and even more excited that when it arrived, it fit perfectly. My absolute dream dress!

June 2013 Outfit Post
I usually don’t post outfits on here unless there are photos of said outfit taken with my fancy DSLR, but hey it’s my dumb basically abandoned blog so I can post whatever I want. Like this.
I bought this black tunic top thing from Urban Outfitters about four years ago and it had been hiding in a drawer ever since because I could never figure out what to wear it with. I was thinking about just wearing it as a probably inappropriately short dress as above.
But I ended up finding a black mini-skirt to wear under it to provide just those tiny couple of extra inches to keep my arse from hanging out. So ta-da! New outfit! Made up of clothes that have been in my wardrobe for years. And so winter appropriate. Those are faux suspender tights that I bought on eBay and that rip and ladder the moment you look at them. They do look cute though. For some reason my face looks like a weird alien in the above photo when actually my face looks great right now:
Make up free! I read just about every single one of Cat Marnell’s old xoJane articles over the past couple of weeks and bought a bunch of beauty stuff she recommended (maybe I’ll write a blog post about that) including the Clarisonic. So far I love it and my skin loves it and I look all even skin toned and great even without make up.
So there you go. This has been A Post. The end.
2013 Outfit Post
Oh hi! It’s only been a zillion years since you guys saw my face. I still have a face though, and I do still wear clothes and for once I made Tom take some photos for me.
I really like this jumper and I feel like this is very mildly a ‘fuck flattering’ outfit. Obviously not as much as something with VBO (visible belly outline) etc but just the basic cut of it, the way the jumper makes my midsection look a lot bulkier than it is, the way it pretty much obscures my waist etc. I like little things like that, they make me feel like I’m quietly saying ‘fuck you’ to fashion norms.
skirt: Brodie’s garage sale, shoes: Buffalo, jumper/sweater: borrowed from Tom (he thinks he bought it from Dandenong Savers in 2005), backpack: Shepparton Savers (I am super into backpacks vs handbags lately).
