My weekend in Bendigo

A couple of weekends ago, I spent a fabulous weekend away in Bendigo with a couple of my closest and very stylish friends, Anthea and Jussy. As mentioned in my previous post, life has been a little hectic of late, rushing around, trying to do too many things; it was good to get away. On route to Bendigo, we stopped for some lunch in Kyneton and perked ourselves at the bar of Annie Smithers, you need to book well in advance if you want a table. The produce is local, organic and most delicious.

Out the back of Annie Smithers, veg patch
 The best wagu burger ever!
 Loved this cotton shade
 Blending in with the locals
When in the country...
 Bendigo is a very pretty town with beautiful scenery and old buildings...and shoes on pavements
We visited the Grace Kelly exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery, unfortunately I couldn't take any pics inside but can report it was all kinds of fabulous. The exhibit showcases the finery and dresses throughout the starlets life, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent oh my!
 I loved this cookoo clock which was part of another exhib at the gallery
Loved this artwork by DEL KATHRYN BARTON

At night, we fine dined at Whirrakee Restaurant and sunk many drinkies, gabbed and laughed; twas so much fun. I wore my red glitter Dorothy heels, pencil skirt and fishnets, you could say we didn't quite blend in with the local fashions. I stumbled just a little onto the road on route to look for a passing cab and before I could get off the road, a voice of a local hanging out of a Holden Commodore shouted, "Get off the road you fu@king sl*t!", well, this sent me and my friends into fits of laughter, that's what the last photo was all about. Girls weekends away are the best, can't wait to do another soon ladies and yes the shoes will be coming but of course 'There's no place like home'.
Have a great weekend dear readers, wherever you may be.

The return of the orange patent heels - Signature looks

It's been a while since I worked the orange patent heels on the blog but I'm going through a love affair with orange at the mo. Do you have a few signature pieces in your wardrobe that are uniquely you? For me, it would have to be: orange shoes, doctors bag, statement accessories and tights; I couldn't live without these trusty faithfuls in my closet. Finding your own style can be tricky, I don't care to look like everyone else on the street and generally go for provocative pieces. Confidence with your own style is paramount, if your confident, you can pull anything off. Break rules, provoke, find your signature look but most of all have fun with it!

Spotty week

My life seems very busy at the moment, I have allowed myself 5 mins to bring this post to you, sorry had hoped to document last week's excursion to Bendigo, but alas, it will need to wait till next week. Tasks for today include: cooking meal and dessert for my family, getting on top of the ironing pile which is beginning to look like a sculpture of epic proportions, search for a supplier for a packaging project I'm working on, full time entertainment of my 3 year old son, buy present for kid's birthday on the weekend...ok times up, hope you enjoy my little love affair with my new spotty tights, have a great weekend!

New mustard spotty tights

I love tights! My collection is huge, I despair when a favorite pair ladders. Last week, I spotted (ah, see what I did there) these mustard tights by Melbourne brand ok-ok. Fit is important, they sit snug and don't slouch, high on the waist, again important; nothing worse than a pair of tights that you need to yank every 5 mins. I reckon, I could easily own their whole range, so many beautiful colours and patterns and perfect to boost my Autumnal/Winter wardrobe. 
Did you have a good weekend? My weekend in Bendigo was absolutely perfect, I look forward to sharing a post with you later in the week.

Little Tweed play suit

In my last post, I mentioned a tweed play suit, purchased on sale from ASOS, well here tis! Got a further 15% off, around $24! I mean, that's mental huh? The fabric is super thick, think Chanel on budget.
This weekend, I'm heading off to Bendigo for a girly night away to see the Grace Kelly exhibition, tres excited, it's also Mother's Day this Sunday so special treats all round. Looking forward to reporting back next week, have a great weekend!

All new yellow top and pencil skirt

Let me begin by saying, thank you to my lovely readers who commented on the previous post 'Should I buy this Sportsgirl dress', it was fun to get your insights and how cute was the list! I think I fell in love with the print and agree maybe the cut is not complimentary, that said, I reckon if it went on sale I'd still be tempted ; )
Last week, I bought a couple of new things to add to my Autumnal/Winter wardrobe: this bright yellow top, pencil skirt and a tweed play suit (will show you that later in the week), for the grand total of $55! ASOS how I love thee! All bought on sale with a further 15% off.
A pencil skirt gives me good shape, the stretchy fabric has a lot of give which makes it comfortable too. I adore the origami detail on the front. I've never really worn this colour of yellow before but I love the pop of colour, prepare to see these pieces in rotation.

Should I buy this Sportsgirl dress??

Today whilst on my lunch break, I spotted this dress in Sportsgirl. Sandwiched in-between an array of Autumnal colour frocks, I practically lept at the rail to prize it off to the changing room. Took a sleekit shot in the changing room. It's loud, it's me, at $99 should I buy it?
