DIY delights!

I have to give myself a pat on the back for these bad-boys. I bought a pair of high-waisted jeans from a Church op-shop for the bargain price of $3. Took a pair of scissors to them and voila....only the best bloody shorts I now own! Super impressed with how they turned out. And it was so easy! 

Step 1 : hold another pair of shorts against the trouser and draw just below where the outline of the shorts is

Step 2 : Cut the outline. 

Step 3 : Put straight in the wash to authentically fray the shorts

Step 4 : Take out wash and the shorts are now frayed and done!

I am never going to buy a pair of denim shorts from a shop again! DIY all the way!

(PS that's obviously a lie about never buying a pair of denim shorts from a shop again...who am I kidding, I wont be able to resist!)


Smashing patterns...

Here is a laverly bright top I purchased for $2 whilst in Tennant Creek at a second hand sale. Cannot get enough of these old women shirts at the moment, my weekends are spent trawling through my local op-shops rails for the most outlandish patterns.  

The pictures were taken by Jamie McVeigh at Ballina in Australia.

All that glitters…

Shoes : Topshop, Shorts : Asos


Got these sparkly numbers through the post recently. The shoes are not exactly the most practical for Darwin's sweaty feet weather, but they are beautiful so who cares! The sequin pants are yet to be worn…I'm all for a bit of leg showing, but these show ass. And a lot of it. I don't think Channel Nine is quite ready for the ass yet, so these will have to be saved aside for the New Year Festivals instead!

Topshop has an immense amount of glittery stuff on its website at the moment…I'm rather sad to not be in the UK and have the bank balance to allow me to buy it all...

Photography is a hobby of mine, and something I'm slowly getting better at! Photographs were taken by myself on a Canon 550D on a 18-55 stock lens.
