Cupcakes from Boy's sister and her boyfriend...
This is what I wore to my birthday dinner with my family and Boy's family! It was at a restuarant called Chester's, and was extremely delicious. I had crab and avacado salsa for entree and "Breast of Chicken" (why couldn't they just call it chicken breast?) for main course. And by the time I ate all that I couldn't fit in dessert :<. Anyway it was lovely and I was very spoiled by presents from Boy's family (even though I shouldn't have opened them a day in advance, my birthday is actually today!).
The clutch is one of my favourite things I got in Melbourne, although not many people realise it is actually a purse and quietly wonder why I am taking a bat toy everywhere.
(I just realised that my calendar is a month behind. How embarrassing.)
I hope you all have a good Friday night, it is Anime Night for me & Boy so today we will be watching Akira (I think!).

♥ "Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months."
♥ "How marriage ruins a man! It is as demoralizing as cigarettes, and far more expensive."
♥ "I suppose society is wonderfully delightful. To be in it is merely a bore. But to be out of it is simply a tragedy."

...and my very favourite:
- Here is where I got the quotes, and where you can read all 207 of them!
- I would love to see this movie - Stephen Fry as Oscar Wilde? Yes please!
- The official Oscar Wilde website.
- Downloadable works of Oscar Wilde - The Importance of Being Earnest is one of my favourite books (yes, I know it's a play) and is utterly hilarious.
This is what I am wearing out to dinner tonight at the Moon Cafe! I've never been before, so I hope it's all good!
Hope you have a fabulous night as well!
I was a bit worried that with the heart necklace it looked a bit My Chemical Romance (i.e DEFINITELY not to look I was going for) but hopefully not. I love this jacket, especially the little fake handkercheif in the pocket! So cute! I wish I could remember what brand it is, but it's available at General Pants anyway. You can see the back of the jacket (the coolest part!) a little better in this photo:
Stay tuned for part two of "What I Wore" later today! Ooh suspense!
I love her look in this picture - her hair, her impeccable makeup, and just the decadence of what she is wearing. People don't have enough masquerade balls anymore, in my opinion. This dress is amazing.
They're a bit hard to see in this picture, but the boots she is wearing in this picture are absolutely divine. I kind of feel like this outfit wouldn't actually be out of place wearing it today? I do have a cloche hat as a matter of fact, but it never feels like the right time to wear it.
First of all my brain almost exploded because of all the cuteness in this picture. Again, amazing shoes and, oh, the whole outfit is just gorgeous. I love how the hat and the shoes match, and I am seriously coveting the feather headdress on the doll on the right.
It's a bit hard to tell in the photo, but the expression on her face is something like "Yeah, it's gold, it's shiny, so what? I can PULL IT OFF. I am SO WEARING THIS DRESS." Or possibly something more eloquent.
SO. MANY. BOWS. = love
I am kind of leaning towards getting my hair cut into a 1920's-esque bob - it's in that kind of not-quite-long-not-quite-short stage that I think looks really awkward and I just try to wear it back. Anyway, I think Clara Bow is so gorgeous and really epitomises what an it girl should be - different, a little quirky, and very cute. I think that some so-called it girls today could stand to be a little more like a 1920's film star (i.e silent), non?
Sorry it has been a bit quiet around here for the past couple of days, but seemingly endless assignments are cropping up (how inconvenient!) and so I am either doing those or falling asleep in lieu of doing them. Anyway! This is what I wore today, to go to a journalism tutorial and pass notes with Amanda. After doing two interviews for a news article I am writing I decided on a JOURNALISM IZ SERIOUS BIZNESS outfit.
I actually ended up wearing different shoes to uni, I bought these boots about a year ago and the little nub heel has almost completely worn off! I wore them to the bus stop and slipped on the uneven heels about five times! So when I realised I had forgotten something I was secretely quite relieved to have an excuse to go and change shoes.
I have a week off uni next week so expect the usual BLOGBLOGBLOGBLOG attack! I will need something to amuse myself whilst waiting for my birthday next Sunday!
(In case you are wondering, the books are for anthropology and sociology! And please excuse my messy kitchen table in the second picture, I could either clean the table or crop the picture but I am lazy today. EDIT - I have discovered how to edit pictures on my computer, hooray!)
Here are my favourite pieces from that collection (as seen on rubysmallbone.com.au):
I am particularly crazy about the skirt in the third picture, and the dress in the second. It's such a beautiful collection (although I'm not that into the model's faux-greasy hair...). I especially like it when an Australian designer puts out such a fabulous collection, I don't know why, maybe all the Olympics patrioticism is affecting my brain.I like some of the pieces in her older collections even more...
The first two are from the Winter 08 collection, the second two from Winter 07. I LOVE all these looks and would wear them in a second (although, I don't really go out anywhere special enough to wear these, and they are a tad too fancy for uni!).
