Big Kid at Heart

 Luna Park in St Kilda has always been one of my favourite places. I have fond memories of riding the Scenic Railway rollercoaster with my mum as a kid and infamously (in our family) proclaiming "this is radical mum!" as we went down the first drop as she sat there quietly terrified and fuming that my dad had chickened out of going on and left it up to her. Sadly the Scenic Railway wasn't open yesterday when we were there otherwise I would have gone on as it is one of my all time favourite rides in the world. I love how rickety it is and that it is still operated by someone standing in the middle of all the carriages to manually apply the breaks. It was built in 1912 and is the oldest continuously operating roller coaster in the world, which makes it pretty bloody cool in my opinion.

Every expert on thrifting and shopping vintage always has the same advice - don't go in looking for a specific item because you will leave empty handed, always go in with an open mind. Now I don't actually think that is terrible advice but this pink coat proves that it's not always true. I went to the coat section of my local Savers looking for a pink coat and this was sitting there in my exact size as if it were waiting for me. It definitely was an opshopping miracle, but it goes to show that if you are after that specific piece you may very well be lucky like I was. It was also something ridiculously cheap like $7. Such a lucky find!

Naomi Murrell is an Adelaide based label who had a pop up shop a couple of months ago at the now defunct Limedrop store. I picked up this super cute gingham dress there and have been wearing it all winter. I have always been obsessed with anything in classic black and white gingham, and I think paired back with pink it looks super cute.

I am so into crossbody bags at the moment, and this one is just so adorable with it's red hearts and cute gold chain straps. J'adore!

These Gorman flatforms have been on my wish list for so long. They were in a lookbook released last year but then never seemed to go into any stores. There were lots of rumours on Gorman buy sell facebook pages as to why this was the case, apparently the pink section was very easily scuffed, which doesn't really bother me all that much. It appears they went into stores very briefly before being recalled and on one of those same Gorman buy sell facebook pages recently I saw someone post a pair for sale and I snapped them up right away. Obviously it would be great if they don't and up scuffing but they're so beautiful I don't actually mind.

  1. Love the dress.

    I've been opshopping a few times and found the exact thing I want. Like my son came home and told me he had his formal in two days time and needed a suit! I thought I'd be hunting forever but found something in 30 secs. Although I guess a guy's suit isn't that a big an ask :)

    Btw the scenic railway is as scary as hell!
