Hogmanay bike ride - Happy New Year!

skirt: French Connection
top: Genki
shades: Le Specs
shoes: Volley
bike: Custom Gorman
helmet: Ebay
Happy Hogmanay as the Scots say! Or Happy New Year's Eve if you live anywhere else in the world. This is Melbourne at its best on NYE, glorious! Perfect for a bike ride with one of my dearest friends and may I say 'What a fox', lady Anthea. We parked ourselves at a local cafe for another Melbourne tradition, 'coffee' and then cruised along the beach bike track to Brighton to take in the picture postcard views.   
Tonight, I will bring in the New Year with all my family. There will be a tall dark and handsome man who will be the first foot (my brother), shortbread, dancing whilst under the influence to Proclaimers, Jimmy Shand ,'Auld Lang Syne' and 'I belong to Glasgow', for sure! After 10 years of living in Melbourne, you just canny take the Scot out of the girl!
Wherever you are in the world, have a wonderful New Year and I look forward to seeing you back here in 2013!

New op shop find | Silk fitted jacket

silk jacket: opshop
dress: Ben Sherman
shades: LeSpecs
thongs: somewhere in Queensland

Every now and then you walk into a Melbourne op shop and come out with something fabulous. The other day, I ventured into The Salvos on Carlisle St and did just that. My beloved was with me and (scoffed) but I could see the potential in this silk fitted, shoulder padded, embellished buttoned treasure ($29). 
I've styled it here, with a stripe dress from Ben Sherman and some thongs I bought whilst on holiday in Queensland for that smart casual look; I even got my pins out!

My favourite outfit of 2012

Here you have it, my favorite outfit of 2102. I've worn this sooo many times, together and as separates;  cost per wear, well I can't even work that out. The jacquard print trousers I bought on sale from ASOS, people stop me in the street to have a closer look. The top I bought from a Hello Gorgeous shop in Melbourne, it goes with just about everything, can be dressed up or down and the colours are so me. The glasses I bought on our holiday to Queensland, they are very much a signature/statement look. The most recent addition are the yellow peace Melissa wedges my beloved bought for my birthday. Do you have an outfit that defines your style?
I hope to bring a monthly run down of my other favourite outfits of 2012, well there have been a few!...stay tuned

Santa came early | New Bike

leggings: Johnathan Aston
sannies: Volley
top: gift shop in New York
sunnies: Le Specs

Christmas has come early, my beloved bought me this fabulous bike; customised by my favourite Melbourne designer of the moment Gorman. He bought it second hand on ebay but it's in mint condition. Here's me just about to take it out for the first time, a little apprehensive on account of not riding a bike since I was 12! As the saying goes, "It's just like riding a bike" and just like that, I got back on, so much fun, can't wait to take it out some more.

New Gorman birthday dress|shoes|sunnies

 dress: Gorman
shoes: Melissa
Sunnies: Le Specs
Birthday sunnies on high rotation

My dear friends gave me a birthday voucher for Gorman and this is what I bought. Classic little summer frock that I'm sure I will get much wear out of, thank you ladies! Goes perfectly with my birthday shoes and sunnies, you could say it's my birthday suit, all I need now is a new set of pins but you can't have everything!
Have a great weekend, till next week.

Do you love Christmas or are you a bah humbug?

top: RedDog 3
skirt: French Connection
necklace & Earrings: Ebay
shoes: Wittner
bag: Topshop
ring: bday gift
shades: bday gift 

I'm loving red at the moment, maybe it's Christmas approaching and I'm feeling festive or maybe I've simply bought a few red pieces lately (a few here!). After 10 years of living in Melbourne, I am finally getting used to Christmas in the sun, santa on a surf board and shrimps on the barbie! Next week, my tree goes up and then the endless list of presents to buy and post, it's a busy time but I do love it.
Do you love Christmas or are you a bah humbug?
