Daily outfit 30/5//2010: Curry cat.

It has been a really great weekend.  On Saturday, Ross and I headed to Gertrude Street for a spot of vintage shopping with friends.

I wore:

– 60’s print balloon-sleeve dress from Target

– Denim duch boy cap from Ice

– Sheer Relief opaque tights

– Black and silver boots from Savers

– Mother of pearl earrings (thrifted)

– Treble Clef pendant

– Amethyst ring.


I went for a very Edie-inspired outfit.  Anyway, I was on a mission to find the perfect dress to wear to my birthday party in a few weeks.  I wanted to treat myself to a lovely vintage piece, so my first stop was Circa Vintage.  It is a gorgeous vintage store located in Gertrude Street in Melbourne that specializes in genuine vintage pieces.  Although the store had some fantastic items, I didn’t have much luck.  I did find one dress that I fell in love wtih.  It was a 1960’s purple, orange and turquiose psychedelic printed tunic dress with a very short skirt and flared sleeves.  Sadly, it wasn’t a very good fit, and the material was so delicate that I would have been too frightened to risk having it altered.   So we moved on.

We had a great time prancing around Gertrude Street.  We visited Rose Chong’s Costume Store, which was utterly awe-inspiring.  We found plenty of cute second hand stores and a great book store too.  I didn’t find a dress, although I did buy something rather special.  I am going to save it for a future post though.  I am still on the lookout for a birthday dress, if anybody has any suggestions…


On Saturday night, Ross and I got Indian takeaway and curled up on the couch to watch My Fair Lady.  While we were watching, I heard an odd noise from the kitchen, and walked in to find Jellylorum pushing her face around in the takeaway container of butter-chiken remnants.  The aftermath looked a little something like this:



Today, we had a leisurely morning in the city followed by a mega Dr Who marathon.  I wore this:


I am wearing:

– Red cardigan from Cotton On

– Red sequinned beret from Sportsgirl

– Amethyst ring

– Cherry print tunic (thrifted)

– White long sleeved top from Face Off

– Target skinny jeans

– Steve Madden red flats

– Stripey socks

– Aldo cherry brooch.


It was only when I caught a glimpse of myself in a store window today that I realised that my outfit today causes me to bear an uncanny resemblance to Strawberry Shortcake.  Whoops!
