I spotted this iridescent tote bag from across the street and rushed inside Sportsgirl to buy it. I've been in need of a new everyday bag that fits all my crap as well as my bulky SLR so finding this was a godsend. I've only seen iridescent clutches, and I really don't need any more clutches (just ask Henry) so the fact that this is a useful and practical tote as well as being iridescent is why I rushed to buy it. Whenever I'm out shopping with Henry and I spot a bag I like, his first comment is "will your bloody camera fit"? You see, if I wear a clutch bag Henry always ends up having to carry my camera and its his most hated thing in the world (well you'd think so at least with the way he complains about it). So you could say this bag is a relationship saver too.

Arggg I hate all my flyaway hairs, anyone have any tips for how to control them and stop them from happening? My hair is so fine and there isn't much of it so I really don't need these breakages. My Bespecd glassed have been getting so many compliments which is a first for a pair of prescription specs for me so I couldn't be happier with them. The melting Chanel logo necklace from Fashiondacci reminds me of things I'd see on the streets of Harajuku. It's also rather ironic seeing as my style is the opposite of that old Coco Chanel quote "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off".

The Freak of Nature skirt from ASOS reminded me of prints I would wear in the 90's, in particular these popular singlets that I remember every teenage girl having. Thus I couldn't pass up getting the skirt although I worried about sizing but the 14 fits me perfectly.

Look how awesome the iridescent nature of this tote bag is. So much metallic rainbow goodness.

These ASOS biker boots are a few seasons old but are proving perfect for the rainy weather Melbourne has been having.

    Re: flyaways, try Brylcreem. Cheap and cheerful, from your supermarket and it works a treat to smooth down those wanton hairs.

  10. Didn't even notice your flyaways, too busy checking out that tote!

    Sleekit x

  11. YES shiny awesomeness! Although I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as too many clutch bags I will concede that it is certainly useful to have something that fits more than cards. I may break my no-Sportsgirl rule for that...

  12. those glasses are to die for!

  13. Hahahaha oh how I love men! As much as we think they don't give too much of a shit about this blogging thing we do, they really do... aka they carry your cameras for you, they remind you about the fact that you need to carry your camera in your bag, and (in my case) they give you pointers on how you should be posing. Bless their cotton socks, they are the best!

    Speaking of "the best" - your bag... OH MY GOD. I think I might take a cheeky stroll down to Sportsgirl in my lunch break!


  14. I saw that bag in Sportsgirl on Tuesday, but didn't look at the price cause I'm 'trying to save', but it's actually cheaper then I thought it was! As always, LOVING this outfit!

  15. Hi, I love your hair colour and the eye glass a lot, it remembers me Lady Gaga.

  16. Swooning over that iridescent bag. I just want iridescent everything.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
