my feathered friend.......

Remember how I said I was a little obsessed with feathers at the moment.....
this should really reiterate that point quite nicely!


I made this little beauty myself!

Ridiculously easy;
Like will only take five minutes easy;
Like it’ll take you longer to organise the materials then it will to make easy!

I’ll post the full DIY for your viewing pleasure shortly.

spinning a yarn.......

On a scale of one to ten, with one being someone who doesn't even know what a knitting needle looks like and ten being a knitting machine 
(and I literally mean a knitting machine),
I'm probably a five.....ok maybe a four.

I've done a couple of scarfs and a pure wool snood but I was thinking it's time to 
step it up and do something a little bigger a jumper! 

And then I saw the post Fashion Agony did with her 
hand knitted minty green jumper and I knew the project was a go!

Inspiration as per below........

The Row Echo Waffle Knit Cashmere Blend Net-A-Porter

Miu Miu Fine Knit Cashmere and Silk Blend Net-A-Porter

Kain Frances Open Knit Linen Blend Net-A-Porter

So fair chance my jumper is going to be a V neck in a neutral colour right??

Fingers crossed I can find a beautiful cashmere or linen blend yarn to use!

I'll keep you posted on my progress!!

i've got MIMCO on my mind.......

You really can never have too much of a good thing. 
Especially when that good thing is gorgeous pieces by the great Aussie brand Mimco.
Pieces just like this one that I got myself the other day!!

What I LOVE most about this one is the noise it makes as it moves!!!

currently crushing......pia

Sometimes the most amazing things can happen when you least expect it. 
That’s completely the way I feel about my recent discovery of Tony Bianco’s Pia.

There I was, just minding my own business and BAM! 
The flat, knee high black boot I’ve been searching for for the best part of.......well 
a really really really long time, just appears right in front of me! 
Not literally right in front of me, on my iphone screen, 
but still you're picking up what I’m putting down right??

Everytime I found a possible candidate, something was amiss. 
The leather was shiny instead of matt, 
the perfect boot but it was a heel, 
it didn’t come in black, 
wasn't real leather
.....and on and on and on.

But that search is over, finally! 

I heart you Tony Bianco!!

girl with a feather earring......

I've become just a little obsessed with feathers lately. I picked up these AMAZING bright turquoise feather earrings when I was in Las Vegas a few months ago and it's kind of snowballed from there!
I made this one myself. I quite like wearing just the one earring, 
and when it's loud and large or totally OTT......even better!

This skirt is a recent purchase and it's become a fast favourite. 
I'm a big fan if pleats, especially in skirts. And I LOVE the way it moves as you move, tried to capture that in the pictures, not entirely successful!

We've had a couple of days of warm weather lately, which is kind of depressing because summer is nearly over, it's like mother nature is saying here enjoy this lovely warm day and beautiful bright sunshine, cause you won't be getting that for a long time!


Shoes: Siren
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted
Top: Kmart
Sunglasses: Ebay
Earring: Made be Me!

much ado about shoes.......

What can I say........I'm a shoe-aholic. Girls gotta have a hobby right!
 p.s. this isn't everything!!

And to help feed my addiction/obsession there is this great site, all about shoes!!

Definately worth a look, if like me, you're a fan of fancy footwear!!

the start of a beautiful friendship........

Here it is, the first post on my brand spanking new blog!

As the title suggests, let's hope it's the start of a beautiful friendship!!

The plan is to use this space as my own little creative outlet for 
everything fashion in my life, 
(which is kind of everything - obsessed much!).
From pics of my own outfits, diy's, inspirations, 
wants and needs and whatever else happens!

Stay tuned!


p.s. that's me in the pic above, of course you knew that already......right??
