How the leopard got its spots

This is what I wore to the small New Years Eve rooftop party I attended, where we got to see the Sydney fireworks without having to deal with the crowds around the harbour. Conveniently the party was on my very own roof so I didn't have to go too far. I did however forget to bring my camera upstairs to capture the fireworks, but hey guess what, they looked just like fireworks!

My polka dot obsession is still in full swing, as is my love of sheer and maxi skirts. So imagine my delight at seeing this skirt in both sheer and polkadot on in a maxi length, it was the full trifecta, the holy grail of skirts if you will, and as so many bloggers have written before me and will continue to write till someone invents a better way of writing about shopping, "it had to be mine". Well mine it is and wear it I will, all summer I imagine and well into winter too by adding some printed tights or leggings. This is another piece I expect to get a lot of wear out of in Tokyo come May.

  1. How did Hachiko cope with the fireworks? Our dog is just getting back to normal!

    I only found out the other day, in my enforced commercial radio listening at work, that some people really hate leopard print. How is that possible?

  2. Happy new Year! What a wonderful way to spend NYE :) Love your skirt - asos has such lovely things :)

  3. Those platform sneakers are ... the bomb!!! And so cute with those socks. You're killing it lady! So good :)

  5. I want that skirt even more now that I've seen you wear it! I'm completely obsessed with polkadots too and that skirt is everything I could ever want in a garment.


  6. Another excellent outfit, you're killing it! I love the top, very much. Also, the skirt.. I'm just, you know, obsessed with all sheer things right now so, love that too. I think I'm going to go to Sydney for NYE this year, although I love Melbourne far more... the fireworks in Sydney look a lot better.

  7. How cute are your shoes and top!?
    I love the platform on those sneakers - so good to add that extra little bit of height!!
