Outfit

P1170190 Hi everyone. As you can see I could not resist purchasing the beautiful mulberry coloured coat from my last post. I love this beautiful shade so much and I've never had anything quite like it before. It's a little darker than my usual shade but I'm really enjoying pretty jewel tones at the moment. It's the same coat I have in pale blue which I received for my birthday so now I have the same coat in more than one colour; that's testament to how much I adore my birthday gift. I also like the design with the shorter length and bold buttons. I know I'll be getting so much use from these coats, I certainly have already. The flower hair clip is my favourite hair piece at the moment. I love the design and it's also easy to use since the flowers are attached to a hair comb. I'm think of attaching many of my existing hair flowers to hair combs or making my own because it is much more convenient than the clips usually sold in the shops. I thought the golden flats would add a touch of colour and sparkle to the outfit. These are one of a few pairs of Marc by Marc Jacobs flats which I own. They are the most comfortable shoes ever and I love how brightness of the gold. I also like having a pair of the logo flats in addition to the mouse flats.

Tomorrow my husband will be leaving for a two and a half week family trip overseas. The main reason I'm not coming is because, in addition to it being difficult to get the time off work, I cannot get on a plane. I struggle with a lot of forms of transport including planes, buses on motor ways and express trains. There is just no way I could spend multiple hours on a plane. I haven't been on a plane for five years and even then I have only traveled on 1.5 hour flights but these days I wouldn't even do that. I feel sad that I'm missing out on yet another experience that the family will have together. My whole life I've felt different to others and have missed out on so many opportunities because of various anxieties. It makes me feel terrible about myself. While they are away my day to day life probably won't be that different because I spend most of my time at work anyway. The last time my husband went away a number of years ago I completely fell apart but this time I'll have a lot less free time to think about the situation. The key is to keep busy; I will probably spend lots of time on my blog so I don't get lonely. Also, my photographer will be away so that will make outfit posts less frequent. But hopefully I can convince my sister to take a set of pictures for me this weekend. My sister is coming to stay on the weekend and I really appreciate the company and something to look forward to at a time where I would otherwise feel sad.

Forever New Single Breasted Coat in Mulberry
Since the colder weather is coming the shops are instantly filed with mulberry, forest green and navy shades. I'm usually not one to wear 'winter colous' in the cold weather and 'summer colours' in the warm weather. I pretty much wear the same shades and pieces all year round. But this year I'm very attracted to all shades mulberry and burgundy. I'd definitely wear this colour all year but it only seems to be available in the shops during winter. This coat is actually less of a purple tone and more of a red tone in person. I've never owned anything in this shade before and it's completely gorgeous. It is actually the same coat which I have in light blue which I received for my birthday; I showed it in my youtube video here. I love the design, it's so flattering. Forever New keeps releasing this coat in more and more unique shades such as blonde, ballerina pink, forest green and lilac petal. I wish I could buy it in six colours! 



Peter Alexander Sesame Street Sweater and Character Face Classic Pant
It's not everyday that you see Sesame Street Pyjamas; I think I'm actually going to have to buy this set. There should be more fun character related pieces around; these are the ultimate and perfect pyjamas. They of course bring back many memories of the amazing shows we watched in the 90s and that crazy big bird. I've always loved Peter Alexander pyjamas but I don't have too many because they are rather expensive. I guess that makes the pairs I have more special. 
 

Review Elle Fluffy Cardigan 
I love the trend of fluffy jumpers/tops but the oversized jumpers that we usually see in the shops aren't really my style. As soon as I saw this I knew it was perfect and totally my style; It's much more delicate, feminine and pretty. As I mentioned in my Tiffany blue post here, I love this colour right now; it's one of my favourites. 

Guess Delaney Tote Bag in Stripe
Guess bags are my weakness, I can't resist a shiny beautiful new one. I especially like the 'Delaney' style as it's sturdy and classy and a good size. I have the 'Delaney design' in a couple of other patterns; namely black & white polka dots and pink logo. There are a few others which I have my eye on such as the leopard print version but my absolute favourite is the stripe version. I don't often see too many stripe bags around; in fact patterned bags in general can often be rare, so stripes would be an amazing addition to any wardrobe. 

Chalk of the Town Dress in Kittens
I've had my eye on this dress for awhile now and it's perfect for me since the little white cats very closelyresemble my Juliette Princess Miracle. A cat printed dress is amazing but a dress with fluffy white cats is even more amazing. Some of the kitty cats are playing and others are wearing crowns. The kitties are very pretty against the pale blue background. It's also the fit and flare silhouette that I love the most. It's Bea & Dot from Modcloth and I've always been happy with my fun and uniquely printed pieces from that brand. 

 
Retro My Little Pony Starshine Tote Bag
I love the bags from Pinup Girl Clothing; the range of Ariel, Snow White, Belle and My Little Pony bags are so unique and amazing. It's pretty obvious why I want this bag, I mean it's just the best. I'd own so many more Pinup Girl Clothing bags if the postage wasn't so high to Australia. I used to own the Little Mermaid Pencil Case and lost it. I was going to replace it but was very discouraged to see that the postage for one $10 pencil case was $35. I surely can't justify that.

Outfit

It's been such a long time since I created a blog post; I've felt very uninspired and uncreative lately. In addition, it's been a difficult time for me on a personal level and I haven't been feeling great. But I think, for the first time in as long as I can remember, certain aspects of my life are looking up. Yesterday was the best day I've had in the past couple of years. I hope it can continue this way even if the progress towards creating a life that feels worth it, is slow. This is what I wore yesterday to spend time with the family. I haven't worn my polka dot dress from Kitten D'Amour for a long time and it was great to get it out again. This dress came in green and red, in addition to blue and I especially wish I'd picked up the red version too. I liked how this dress was more well priced than most dresses from Kitten D'Amour but for that reason it did sell out rather fast. Polka dots are my favourite print ever so this dress is completely representative of my style. I love the silhouette with a deep v at both the front and the back. The combination of orange and blue came to me rather quickly yesterday morning; I think it's inspired by one of my long term favourites of blue and bright pink.  I love this cardigan because of the colour, texture and eyelet detailing. I like how the dress and cardigan sit against each other at the neckline. I'm bringing out an old favourite in terms of my Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats. I've had them for a year and a half now and was so incredibly happy and excited when I received them as a gift all that time ago since it was very unexpected. I wrote a post about these amazing shoes here when I first received them.  Not only do they look completely adorable, they are very comfortable too. A pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats is definitely a wardrobe essential to me.

My Birthday Presents

Hi everyone. Finally I've had the chance to film and edit my 'What I Got For My Birthday Video.' I've had so many problems finalising this one. It's the longest video I've ever made and it took the whole of last weekend and a couple of weeknights to edit. It didn't help that the video editing software failed to save my progress on a couple of occasions. I must admit that I was pretty close to giving up on this video completely. I haven't posted a video in awhile now; I can't believe it's been almost a month. I haven't had much time because I've been busy with work but I will make more effort from now on to keep up with my channel. This video will show you all the fashion and beauty pieces I received for my birthday. I love everything I received so thanks so much everyone! I will let the video speak for itself; well done if you get to the end as this video is half an hour long.
