Flower Power

I am our house's designated mail box checker as we only have 1 key for it and the mail box is situated at the front of the building which is my usual entrance, whereas Henry and my sister, Ebony, both use the back entrance. It kind of sucks for me because often we have parcels that don't fit in the box so I have to go to the post office to pick them up, even if it is just next door it ends up taking forever as its like the worlds busiest and understaffed post office. Anyway we got a notice that a parcel was at the post office so I was kinda bummed. But then I got there and it was for me, and it was from Amber and Ebony from Make Believe, who I know from living in Tokyo. I was so excited as it was unexpected. I thought I was picking up a superannuation pack for Henry or something equally as boring.

I rushed upstairs to photograph the amazing packaging. The colours of which inspired me for an outfit. My sister was like "Oh it came" which confused me as I wasn't expecting anything from them, but I did remember about a week ago my sister came up to me and was like "what do you think of your friends Amber and Ebony?" I was like "huh? They're cool. Why?" and she said "Oh no reason" and went back to her room. It turns out they had asked for my address and Ebs was just making sure it was ok to give it to them. Oh and yes my sister's name is Ebony and then there is Ebony at Make Believe, confusing much?

The most amazing surprise of all time! Thanks so much Amber and Ebony, you girls are the greatest! Look at the black, purple, pink and blue, loving the colours in this shot which inspired my first outfit in the necklace.

My dream necklace. I really did dream about it recently. In my dream I had won the lottery and all I bought was one in each colour, nothing else, ha.

Make Believe package colours inspired outfit. I wanted to dress in head to toe floral patterns, and well this is the best I can do...for now.

Nacklace: "Petal to the Metal" by Make Believe gift
Floral dress: Cotton On $30
Floral leggings: Supre $30
Belt: Camberwell Market $10
Black wedges: Savers $9.99
Sunglasses: Sportsgirl $30

How cool are my wedges? These are the ones that feel apart not once but twice during fashion week. They have been fixed again, but this time with nails and glue, so hopefully no more breakages.
