It doesn't rain, it pours.

Not only are members of my family suffering from the ongoing effects of the Christchurch earthquake, but on Friday my sister and her husband were woken up by a car crashing into their house.
The occupants of the car, and my sister are fine, but really, what can you say?!
Lets hope these things truly don't come in threes.
In comparison my life is rather dull! Latest news is last week i got offered a new part-time job, which I start tomorrow. My new fitness plan is going really well, I am now up to week three of the "learn to run 5km in 8 weeks" programme. Its so much harder than I thought it would be, but as I have inadvertently started up a running group, I am finding it great to exercise with others.
Amazingly enough, through a complete quirk of fate, The Boyfriend and I have scored tickets to Falls festival this new years! We are so excited, and to continue the theme we have decided to go camping for christmas as well. Of course, this now calls for me to plan a "festival wardrobe", I love a challenge!
My day off on Thursday was spent in always colorful St Kilda. Its been such a long time since I was last there, over winter this seaside suburb tends to wind down a bit, but even then its odd that I haven't been there for so long. I hit up the op shops on Barkley and Carlise streets, coming away with a fake fur collar (love!), a lacy off-white frilly cardigan and a lipstick case. Combined with a yummy curry lunch and plenty of sunshine, it turned out a lovely day.

I am starting to join the 'wear a belt' brigade, this soft leather one was picked up a while ago, it has a wee duck on the silver decoration.

Ring $1
Jade Buddha necklace $3

New lipstick case....$2

Black jersey dress $35 Supre
Cream cardigan $7 thrifted
Fur collar $6 thrifted
Leather Oroton purse thrifted years ago...

Love my new collar, will be wearing this until the weather gets a bit warmer!

Hope all is going better in your various corners of the world...


  1. Aww hun, sorry to hear about your sister & the car crashing, that must have been awful!

    I love everything about this look! The belt looks stunning like that, especially with the maxi dress & collar. Gorgeous.

    Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate them xo

  2. Oh, I really hope your family is all recovering fine, and that things get a little more positive for y'all!
    On a lighter note, what a great lipstick case! :)

  3. Oh my gosh how scary! Your poor sister :(
    and even worse when you're on edge all the time waiting for the next aftershock.
