Converting to Wordpress

Hi all,

Just a quick note to let you know I'm in the process of converting to Wordpress. I've transferred by blog posts and comments over but it'll take awhile to get it looking the way I want it to.

The domain name is (not sure if it's working yet). Alternatively

Will update you with more progress.

New In: B.A.I.T Footwear

Despite my goal of spending less on clothes and shoes this year (which overall has been going well),I had a bit of a splurge online with B.A.I.T Footwear. As you may know I am completely in love with B.A.I.T Footwear. It is without a doubt my favourite brand for shoes and it's got to the point where I almost exclusively wear these shoes. I did a post on my collection awhile ago here but I plan to create an updated version soon. 

The 'Gloria Flats' are by far my favourite make by B.A.I.T Footwear. Up until now they've only been available in red and in black, which is comparatively limited given most other shoes come in a myriad of colours. I've had so much wear from the Glorias that I've repurchased both the red and the black a couple of times. My favourite outfit with the black version was posted here. I was browsing the website a couple of weeks ago and noticed the Glorias were released in purple, pink and teal. It was a dream come true. I couldn't not buy them considering they are my go to shoe and I know I'll get so much use from them. I can't think of any outfit they wouldn't go with. There are a few items I'd break my spending ban for and I knew that would be a new release Gloria flat, and the same applies to a couple of colour ways in the Wheels and Dollbaby Dita Cardigan. 

I've lost count how many colours in have of the 'Robbie Heels.' The sparkly blue version is one of my favourites which I posted here. The Robbies are a gorgeous vintage design and are also very comfortable. I couldn't resist the mustard yellow because that's got to be one of the coolest shades in the world! I was also drawn in by the red version because it's such a classy deep red shade and I love the patent finish. Now I want the Robbies in teal and in pink. 

Isn't it amazing wearing new shoes?! My motivation to go to work last week was higher than usual because I was wearing the pretty coloured Glorias and Robbies!  

I purchased these shoes directly from the B.A.I.T Footwear website. I'm often asked where to buy this brand in Australia but to be honest there aren't many options. Any online store I've seen based in Australia just has such a limited range of stock. If you're serious about owning this brand go with ordering directly from the US. Yes, the postage is crazy high (I hate to think how much I've spent on postage over the years) but I love the shoes so much I consider it worth it. I placed my order on a Thursday night and it arrived only a few days later on the Monday morning. I'm impressed a package can come from the US to Australia that quickly for any price!

Another red and green outfit, I told you I love this colour combination. This outfit is the reverse of the one I posted earlier in the week- red on green instead of green on red. I like the way this outfit turned out. It wasn't planned, it came together in a rush before work. I also like how this outfit combines a couple of old favourites. I've had the cardigan for probably five years now and there wouldn't be many pieces in my wardrobe I'm still wearing from that long ago. (Back in the days I when had short brown hair). I like the frill detail and the silver buttons. It's such a nice deep shade of red too. Red is actually incredibly versatile to me. I could accessorise pretty much any dress in my wardrobe with red details.I did a remix post on this cardigan a few years ago here. The mint green lace dress is another old favourite. I've had it for a similar length of time. It's from Portmans and I was so surprised to find it in that store. It seems different to the usual Portmans style and I rarely go into the store. However, I've had so much wear from this dress and will continue to do so. Isn't it incredible how much clothes can remind us of certain times in our lives. In this case, not the best times as my life wasn't easy five years ago. However, the way clothes bring back such vivid memories is quite remarkable. 

My shoes are a much more recent purchase. I've been cutting down the spending this year. However, these shoes are one of the few items I've purchased. I've mentioned a few times how I'm a major fan of B.A.I.T Footwear. The vintage designs are unrivaled by other brands and they are very comfortable. I've built up quite a collection now (hoping to do an post on my updated collection soon). I have the Robbies in a few different colours now and when they were released in red I simply couldn't resist. I've noticed Kitten D'Amour appear to have replicated a few B.A.I.T Footwear designs now including the Robbies. I'm not sure the background on it but from my perspective I'm not a fan of the replication. Now I have the red version of the Robbies from B.A.I.T Footwear I appreciate how much better they are; a much classier deeper shade of red, patent and overall better quality.

Thanks so much for your advice regarding my photos being stolen on ebay. It was very helpful and I really appreciate it!

IMG_5081Wow it's been so long since I did an outfit post, it's actually my first set of pictures taken all year. In addition to being incredibly busy (which you can read about on my fitness blog here), I hadn't dyed my hair in months and my regrowth was so terrible it was all the way back to my bun. I had a few people ask whether it was intentional ombre! Therefore, I'd been avoiding outfit pictures and cameras in general. I finally had my hair dyed again this weekend. I must never let it get so bad again. Red hair and a routine of swimming six days a week isn't easy. But I love both red hair and swimming so I make it work the best I can. 

The Kitten D'Amour Picture Perfect dress has easily become my most worn and go to dress. I'm often in a rush for work after training in the mornings so I reach for this dress time and time again. It's so simple to pair with any of my cardigans. I wish I had the blue version of the dress too. I've said many times before that red and green is such an underrated colour scheme. It certainly shouldn't just be reserved for Christmas. I wear these colours together frequently (such as here and here on the blog). Green is supposed to be good with red hair also.

On another note I'm so frustrated by seeing my personal pictures, taken entirely for the purposes of this blog, used on other people's ebay listings. It's happened quite a few times including right now for the Emerald Green Dita Cardigan. I cannot comprehend why anyone would think that's acceptable. Use some common sense. Just take your own pictures!! I'm also incredibly frustrated by the responses received when I ask the ebay seller to take my pictures down. How can the fact my images show up in a google search, be used as a justification for using them? How can my personal blog photos be compared to using actual stock photos from a website? There's no need to respond in such a manner. Have you ever experienced this, any tips of what to do?

Current Loves

Alannah Hill My Summer Glow Cardigan
I've always loved stripes, bows and the combination of red, white and blue so this is certainly my style. It's a classic design but also a little different because most of the cardigans at Alannah Hill are solid rather than patterned. My only concern is the large composition of cotton. I usually avoid buying cotton cardigans because of how they lose shape and I don't like the feel of the material. It's not completely cotton so I'd have to see what this cardigan is like in person. 

Kate Spade Be Mine Wallet
Today I had to go into the city to collect my race kit for the weekend (running event and ocean swim) and while I was there I went into the Kate Spade store. I rarely go to Sydney Westfield so visiting the Kate Spade store was a treat. It was amazing! The store is so pretty and sparkly. The Valentines collection is so beautiful and I've always liked heart print. I found so many pieces I wanted to buy. Without going on a massive shopping spree I could probably justify purchasing a wallet but I'll wait until my birthday because I'm trying to get out of the habit of spending just because I see something I like. 

Nike Free Rn Shoes
I already have the Nike Free Rn in a few different colours and I'm very impressed with them (I'll write a separate post about them on my fitness blog eventually). They are running shoes but I wear them for bootcamp, to tennis and to and from swimming. I love the minimalist and lightweight design and they are very comfortable. The bright colour range is also a feature and, at the moment, the Free Rn is available in 13 different colours on the Nike website. I desperately want to add this pink and blue version to my collection but I'm spending less at the moment so resisting the desire to buy more. 

Marc Jacobs Shine Fragrance
I discovered this today during a quick trip to Sephora. I was amazed by the pretty metallic packaging in red, gold and pink. It's hard to choose a favourite but overall I think the red was the most pretty in person. As far as I can tell it appears to be the usual Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance just with different bottles. I've always liked Daisy and I'm running low on it (maybe I'll try and get some for my birthday next month). I can still smell the scent on me which I sampled earlier today. So pretty. Knowing me, I'd probably find some excuse to own all three colours. 

Alannah Hill Only in Your Dreams Cardigan
There are many Alannah Hill cardigans I love at the moment (and as always!) but this one is my favourites because of the unique colour. It's so difficult to find yellow clothes and especially mustard yellow which is unfortunate because it's such a standout shade. It also comes in pink which is also pretty. I adore the detailing and beading. 

Kate Spade On Pointe Swan Small Maise Bag
Following on from the Kate Spade theme, I've always wanted a bag. It would be my favourite brand of bag to have (other than Chanel of course!) I love how the bags are so creative; you don't see a swan printed bag every day. To me, it's classic and fun at the same time. I've always liked swans for some reason too. At $489 it's an expensive bag. I'm sure it could be seen as an investment, right!?!!

What's on your wishlist right now?
