Why is it that black shoes look so freakin' amazing with black opaque tights? A womens' magazine would probably say that monochromatic looks lengthen the legs and suit all bodytypes. I'll go with that.
Shoes and tights as before (lazy, lazy me!). The "skirt" is a Primark boob tube. As I said before, they did really well to pick out things I'll be able to wear lots over here, even into autumn/winter like this jumper dress (probably not really a dress but my moto is if it covers the ass area, it's a dress!) why this would even be on sale in tropical North Queensland, I have no idea! Though the family were complaining of being cold the other day...lies! Wasn't I saying I wanted more black in my wardrobe to match a certain awesome birthday present I know I'm getting?
Worn with the same shoes, tights and Primark "skirt" as well as a Topshop vest. You got a little bit of face in that last one! Ignore the early morning (ok 11ish) greasiness! This next thing I love, I say "thing" becuase I don't even know what it is but it looks to me like what would happen if a dress and a jumper had a baby but maybe the jumper was half cardigan, on his mother's side. Maybe I'll call it a jress or a drumper. It's cute anyway and looks really nice on!
I love how this top looks like vintage lingerie and it feels lovely on too. Quite summery I suppose but I can always layer once it gets colder here.
I love the vintage feel of this top too, I'm seeing it tucked nicely into soemthing high-waisted, yum! And under cardigans in the winter, of course! Actually they also sent me the most beautiful grey cardigan (two things I love, grey and cardigans!) which I'll have on as soon as there's a cloud in the sky.
My Dad also sent this watch, a gift from a business trip to Hong Kong. I'm not usually a watch person (it's like being left-handed I think, you either are or are not a watch person) but for some reason I actually really love this! Maybe it's because it looks like it came from the future and arrived in a little sort of pod or maybe it's because it feels like it's made out of wetsuit. Either way I love it and I'm going to wear it, even though I'll never remember to use it to check the time! I have my phone for that...which may be a good thing 'cause it might be difficult to set to the right time! There was also a beautiful handbag which no doubt you'll see soon in an outfit post becuase it's the perfect size for daytime and lots of scarves and accessories which I love too! If any Australian readers (or anyone really!) want to know where things are from just leave a little comment!
I know that this post may make me look a bit spolied but it is nearly my birthday and I can assure you I do not have packages like this landing on my doorstep every week! As much as I love my new things (and I do!) they are in no way a replacement or a substitute for quality time spent with my family (if I'm lucky, I see my Dad once a year and the girls every second Christmas when they visit their Dad) who I miss like crazy! Just to pre-empt any anonomous comments or "what a brat" thoughts you may have had. I work hard to earn my own money and try to take as little as possible from either of my parents, as I'm sure many of you do too! I'm happy as I have some more good things for going back to uni and the colder weather and I won't have to shop for the rest of the month! I know, I can't believe I just said I'm happy not to shop but recently I have been buying rather a lot, especially for someone who's trying to clear an overdraft!
Well I'm away to tidy my room (I'm thinking of doing a tour of my wardrobe/room, which amount to the same thing 'cause my flat's tiny, daddylikey style. Thoughts?)
