Good bye to my Fashion Mashie wardrobe $5 a piece. I’m at Coorparoo Bowls Club’s Car Boot Sale today – it is time to sell the things that didn’t go to the RSPCA. We dropped 4 bags off at their thrift in February and today is part 2 of getting ready to buy more clothes. I obviously broke the habit but I am starting a new job in a week and I would like to buy some new clothes for my fresh start.
Just need to make some money so I can afford to shop again!

I am usually a no tv or documentary only kind of a girl – not in a snobby way, just eternally curious. With an hour to spare last night I stumbled across a great such doco all about creatures that survived the event that killed off dinosaurs. You know, the evolution of the green sea turtle over the last 220 million years … Give or take.
In the ads, in my folly, I flicked and abruptly halted when the screen was filled with chiffon and crystals drowning a young girl attending her first holy communion in a dress twice her body weight.
This is how it came to pass that I saw my first ever episode of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
I was fascinated. I thought the show was just going to be about big, frilly wedding gowns but it was a real insight into traveller culture. But while looking for a link to share I was saddened to come across this article featuring the couple and the dress from last night’s episode: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2152041/My-Big-Fat-Gypsy-Wedding-star-vows-burn-huge-white-dress-plans-divorce-age-18.html
On a cheerier note, the colours and dancing were fabulous, my favourite part was how all the girls pose for their photos – more posing I say!
I was inspired and my friend at work today suggested I give one of the poses a shot – talk about how to make a boring outfit feel a little more fab. Not that any of the outfits in the show are boring … Just mine as I arose at 4am for airport duty then went straight to work at 5.30am.
Will that make up for arriving by the skin of my teeth yesterday?
More importantly, can a great pose save a boring outfit?
Is this a power stronger than the power of fashion? Only time will tell – may the experiments begin:
We said bye to Bowral via a family friends’ place with a divine spring garden in blossom. I couldn’t resist doing my daily shot there:
The thing I love most about sprinkles is all the different colours and the party feeling that always comes with sprinkles and colour. In the same way that balloons always set that party mood.
I thought today might have been one of those days with too much going on. But I just couldn’t stop adding accessories!
Laura Ashley wooly pants get a real work out as the temperature drops and I’m working in the no central heating building!
Got lots to do today so easy to move and super warm was the key so Agnes B raspberry jumper with little bows will help and I didn’t get a chance to show you a close up pic last time so here are the little bows:
And just to be super warm and try and get healthy before my students arrive next week I thought spotty tights might give me the power to be super productive in case 1000s of mgs of Vitamin C don’t do the trick! This is the power of fashion I’m talking about here
Sorry about the instant remash but these pants are the only thing I can wear and sit in all day now that I’m back at work! Trust me, I’m struggling with the limitations and the desire for something funky now that I’m home to the chills and thrills of Winter and a whole new range of wardrobe possibilities.
This Country Road jumper, for example, has done a lot of miles (pardon the pun) over the years – remember we have short, warm Winters here so wooly clothes don’t really get worn out! In fact usually the Queensland moths get to your woollies before time has a chance to play her part in the destruction of fav wardrobe items! My point is this jumper has done a lot of miles being paired with cool little skirts rather than over-sized Man Pants but plenty of time for that. I must in fact thank Laura Ashley for the softness of these pants and stop being mean!
I am going out tonight so I will get a chance to switch outfits … Look out for the cutest Aussie designer helping me step out of my Man Pants tonight! Can you guess who?
My only hint is … She really makes a girl feel girlie …
Oh if you’re wondering what the box behind the door is, yes? I know you want to know! It is blackboard heart stickers that come in a variety of sizes and are now decorating my toilet walls for graffiti purposes and GORGEOUSNESS!
