The fates have been against the upkeep of my fingers and toes. 4 rescheduled plans for a much needed mani pedi pamper sesh with blogger friend and photog, Maggie from la petite mademoiselle and we found success . Finally, there are another 2 pairs of fingers and toes that are as sparkly as Sailor moon post transformation. Now here’s the dilemma, I am not a fan of my “man hands” being photographed and I know very few people with photogenic toes. That leaves us with your imagination and a picture of my awesome new Holster sandals.
Flat, with a touch of sparkle, these jelly sunsets in black are my new go-to slip on favorites. Great for the beach, lunch, pamper sessions and for me, the perfect pairing for my sarees. They also have the cutest range of girls jellies and one style out for boys. Princess looking shoes that are actually comfortable makes a great replacement for those tacky hard glitter slippers that are common stocking stuffers for the little princesses in your life.
I won’t lie, this wasn’t just a great opportunity to catch up with Maggie, it was the perfect excuse to wear my new shoes and thrift-ed jacket that I had just painted. Snow white looked a bit lonely so I added the evil queen after and I’ll be sure to post that as soon as the sun hides behind a cloud long enough for me to wear a leather jacket without sweltering in it. For now I’ll have to depend on the Lego man fireman to hose me down when it gets too hot.
Very little can get me out of the house voluntarily when I’m down with a cold. My preference is to wallow in front of something back-lit while grazing on Asian snack foods and sipping tea. It’s very self indulgent and I’d bee in severe danger of making a Pixelhazard shaped dent in my furniture were it not for a fresh delivery at my doorstep.
The timing couldn’t be more perfect because my motivation to dress presentably before stepping out of the house has plummeted. Less temptation to sneak into something unspeakably hideous yet comfortable I found lurking in the bottom of my cupboard means this Delirium shift dress from St Frock is making the world a better place. Remarkable for a mere $49, don’t you think?
Coupled with my amazing Fossil watch and new Lilac PuffinBared loafers (the review for which is coming soon), I have myself a cute and comfortable outfit. Comfort is particularly key when someone has a cold. As well as some beautiful alliteration in that delightful sentence, one less irritation during illness is a saving grace for all the people around me. No one wants a cranky pixel.
You know those “can’t be bothered” days? I’ve been having a lot of those lately and the wet weather is putting a dampener on any enthusiasm I’ve managed to drum up. For now over the knee suede boots, button front shirt dresses and jackets are my uniform, or at least it would be if I were employed by an underfunded alternative radio station. It’s thrift-ed, gifted or from Attik.
Thrift shopping can sometimes leave you with nothing but the faint smell of old people, but the keen persistent eye occasionally spots gold. Not only a great ethical way to shop for clothing, it prevents your wardrobe from being what IKEA is to homes. I spotted this Planet Hollywood Jacket from Beverly hills that scream all good things about the 90’s. Fortunately it was snapped up almost immediately by Sarahteaa. Thank goodness because if she didn’t, I’d have to, and I’m already 4 denim jackets in at this point.
Paired with the Evil Twin Bad Element slouch pants (here), some Winsor Smith Puffy heels (here) and a basic black top, it’s the answer to an Autumn day out with friends. We got our brunch on, and it was good!
For Christmas, my true love gave to me a partridge pair of kick ass boots. They are tall, white and super comfy, whats not to love? I can think of just one thing….my new ability to dress up as baby spice. All I can say to those comments is “NO, just no…“. Get your ass kicking pair of Windsor Smith Rainbow boots (ironically in white) here before they sell out [insert your own spice girls joke here].
