What I Wore Wednesday

Totally gone troppo today and loving the opportunity to wear colour, colour and more colour.

I picked up this Dotti dress a couple of weeks ago for 30% off the marked price. Original price was $69.95 (wtf?!) and I got it for a little over $20. Isn't the back detail just the sweetest?

Tonight's Project ...

Renovations are complete at our house and tonight's job is to move back into our bedroom. 

Here is the blank canvas we'll be working with.

It will be going on the market hopefully within the week.

Are these house-y posts of any interest to anyone?

I have often had my eye on a Modcloth beauty or two but have never actually purchased from them before. The 50% off email for new arrivals sparked my interest this morning and before I knew it I was entering my PayPal details for two new dresses.

The shipping was really reasonable too ... around $11.

P.S. Does anyone else have the urge to shop for themselves more at christmas time? I don't know about you but the pre-christmas sales are just about as-good-as ... if not better than the ones after christmas.

And does Christmas really need a capital?

I'm finally able to share the most exciting thing happening in our life at the moment ... The bit that makes our sea change actually real ... our new house. Settlement happens on the tenth of December and I will move up the day after I finish work which just so happens to be three days before Christmas. Luckily the husband's work pays for a removalist so that decreases the stress.

can't wait to get in and start decorating. Oh, and for the post-xmas sales - hello new BBQ and outdoor furniture. Oh, and a day bed. 

What do you think?

What I Wore Wednesday - Feeling a little Blue

Today's outfit was built around this new Forever New prom skirt I bought a week or so back for around $30 while they were having a 50% off the marked price sale (gotta love that!)

I love the pattern, the poooof-i-ness and above all else, that is is basically spring personified.

For all you Toowoomba bargain hunters out there, Lifeline on Anzac Avenue has 50% off all clothes till Friday. You better get there before I do and take all the good stuff!

I'm finally able to share our new house in anotehr post later this afternoon. Stay tuned!

Spring is here and what better way to celebrate it than with a vintage floral dress?

Anyone else excited about the final twilight movie?! I'm no twi-hard but am a big fan who has never actually seen any of the movies in the cinema. Team Edward all the way!!!! Which team are you on?

Hoping to share a sneak peek of our new house which goes unconditional tomorrow ... stay tuned.

Oh, Olivia

Olivia, rarely (if ever) do you get it wrong ... but, WHAT is doing with your hair here?!

Does anyone want to join me in documenting their day with a photo every hour on instagram for a 12 hour period? Being at work is going to make it hard to not make my photos look mundane but I'm going to try. Use the hashtag #12hourday. Let me know if you've joined in and I'll keep an eye out for your photos!

Loving the instagram web profiles! Just type[yourusername] into your browser. Easy as!

Gumtree is for Me

Hey ya'll. So, the husband and I are definitely moving and are very close to settling on a house in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast. The house has polished timber floors with four bedrooms and considering we only have two beds I thought we needed to increase our stock by one or two. I had visited Snooze earlier in the week and was slightly shocked at the price of beds, mattresses and ensembles. I decided to give eBay and Gumtree a try and searched for beds in the Toowoomba, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast region. When I stumbled across this beauty and I knew the husband would like it, I pounced. The husband who seems to like doing up (conservative estimate (inside joke)) budgets was quite pleased when I told him I had bought this bed for 10% of the $2000 he had assigned for a new bed. 

To some people it may look dirty, weathered and not one bit appealing to sleep in but it is completely 'us'  and I can't wait to style it in our new house. Over to pinterest I go for ideas!

Melbourne Cup - Office Style

Here's what I wore to work today on Melbourne Cup day. I failed at the office sweeps and have drunk a whole bottle of wine. I'm very much unsure whether I should drive home at this stage. 

vintage dress | mollini heels | assorted accesories

For those of you who are regular op shoppers and those who buy things which you ponder whether you will actually EVER will wear will understand today's predicament. Today's choice is a beautiful pastel purple vintage frock that I can so imagine someone wearing to a Saturday night dance in the 50s but probably not the best length for someone of my height. I decided to wear it anyway incase I never wear it again. The shoes were my original wedding choice shoe.

For a bit of variety, here is the rock dog totally lovin' some knock off ray bans purchased in San Francisco.

Any some work out shots ... these are for you, Megan! My bestie has lost loads of kilos and is such an inspiration. It was so awesome for her to come along to my Friday afternoon pump class last Friday.

Hop everyone had a fabulous Tuesday!
