Daily outfit-casual Friday.

Not everyone can afford high end designer labels, fortunately for mass production it's easy too be on trend and on a budget or even mix and match for your own take on things. 

Today I wore: 
Striped body con T-shirt dress by envious; maxi skirt from best and less; knitted snood from cotton on; pleather biker jacket from some market stall; 
studded ballet flats from target with my oversized studded handbag from cotton on.

I call it boho biker chic, or just comfey.

Hello to all my fashionistas, 

And welcome back to another fabulous Friday! I've been thinking, what actually constitutes fashion and what makes a fashionista, and if you think the answer is obviously 'fashion is clothing shoes and accessories and a fashionista is someone who is always on trend and rocking the latest from the run way' well yeah in terms of the socially accepted definition you are right fashion is clothing, shoes and accessories and a fashionista is always dressed in the latest. However to me fashion is about more than just clothing. It's about how they make you feel, they are an expression of self and a form of art, a fashionista is someone who pushes the boundaries and expresses them selves through their own sense of style and using clothing to complete the living, breathing art form that they want to create. So there's something to think about.

Things that gave me my sparkle this week:
New products at work, Thursdays are like Christmas in there, just with more styrofoam. White tea with rose, it's delicious, nutritious, smells divine and tastes great. Today I wore a maxi skirt for the first time in a long time, I felt so fantastic. Blogging in my polka dot onsie, can anybody say toastie?! Chicken and chorizo paella. Garlic, oh how I love garlic I use it a lot in cooking one because it makes everything taste good and two because its is excellent at alleviating the symptoms of cold and flue and fighting them, best herb ever. Did you know that a sultana is a dried white grape where as a raisin is a smaller red grape, either way I don't like them but I found it interesting. Afternoon naps with my kitten. Reading fashion mags equates to studying, I love my homework. Having a supportive boyfriend. Having a creative explosion, hello designs for spring/summer 2013.

I'm no different to any other wanna be fashion designer infact I'm probably exactly the same as the rest of you, I just do it a little differently.

Okay so welcome back to another fabulous Friday, which to be honest with you is not being spent all that fabulously at all. I'm coming to you live from the Sydney to lithgow train.... Long story don't ask but I don't have enough fuel to drive. 
However I've had an epiphany, I am no different to any other wanna be fashion designer, we all have these big ideas of how to change the face of fashion, but lets face it everything has been done, it's all just a re interpretation of something that exists, and even if you could change things it would take a lot of money for marketing and a hell of a lot of influential pull. I'm a neither here nor there person, I am not completely out there nor am I a plain Jane, I am that person that seems average or reserved until I open my mouth, yes that is me. The only way i am different to the rest is i do things differently to achieve the same outcome. Okay senseless epiphany done for the week, it makes sense to me okay.

Over the past two weeks I have had a fabulous time, between my birthday presents and visits from some of the bestest friends a girl could ask for, I am full of sparkle and ready too rock and roll.

Having a fantastic boyfriend who know me to well. Motherduck made me a birthday cake it was delicious. that painful burn of progress squats give you. snuggles with pandora. Lunch time cocktail jugs with stez. Playing pool at the pub with my sister. Plotting and scheming my decor with Motherduck, she is a truely handy person to have as a mother you should all check out her blog she i faaaaaabulous! , vamoose get on it people! Cooking roast dinners for Tom, he just appreciates it so much, and I got a French oven for my birthday that I needed to use. Punk goes pop, because I like listening to bad pop songs made into slightly better or worse in some case punk songs. Spotted onsie, if I find my onsie dance photo I will post it.

So ladies and jelly beans what's made your week? 

Ps does anyone have a pen I forgot mine and its really hard to write notes without one.

Love and Butterfly kisses too all,
