Good things take time, so they say.

Its been such a productive day! I've cleaned out my wardrobe, done the washing, made the bed, tided our lounge, and ate some very bad McDonald's. Best of all I have finally organised the promised giveaway!I love the stuff I have managed to put together, and I hope the winner does too :-) 
Before I get too carried away here's what I wore today. While cleaning I also stumbled across the perfect new picture-taking place, so hopefully I will have slightly better inside photos from now on?!
The weather in Melbourne has been possibly slightly warmer the last week or so. I keep seeing bloggers on this side of the world talking about summer not being too far away...wishful thinking? Perhaps....

So many "forgotten" items were found in my closet today. This homemade, fully lined silk dress is one of them. Does that mean I have too much stuff, or a short attention span?!

Dress: $5 Camberwell markets
Shoes: $20 Barkins
Necklace $20 Etsy
Most likely fake Rolex: $1 Camberwell markets
Tights: $10 Target

I know I swore black and blue that I wouldn't be wearing tights this winter. But I took the advice of This Little Piggie and brought some cotton tights. Finally, tight related comfort!

I am still lusting after a pair of clogs, but these will do for now. At this point I have found four possible suppliers of my future clogs, Funkis, Nordic Fusion, Tessa Clogs and Clogs of Sweden.  Not to mention ebay. I will have clogs by summer!


The lucky winner will get:
A cream leather clutch
An embroidered black silk sleeveless top
A cute 80's cotton knit - size 10/12
A marbled scarf
Beaded blue necklace
90's bright floral sundress - size 10/14
And a pair of original vintage aviator's with the tag still attached!

 All thrifted here in Melbourne...

Its packed up waiting for its new home!

    So glad you found some comfy tights, the look great with the gorgeous dress.

    Also, re: the blogroll I don't know if my blog isn't updating on your blogroll due to my feeds? I messed around with them last week, maybe I inadvertantly did something to it :/

  10. Dead jealous of those shoes. And I can't wait to break out clogs this summer. The last time I wore them was in primary school I think :)

  11. Well I'm already following :) / have been for sometime!
