{NEW FASHION BUY} 1960's MOD DRESS!



Today I finally went shopping and gave my driving lessons a rest (going for my P's on friday, wish me luck!) and found something I had been looking at for a while {well actually my new obsession}, actually 1960's fashion has always been something I always wanted but now I have started to study it further and want to own a couple pieces of my own. Now I like the whole decade of the 1960's fashion except for the end, where it begins right into the 70's. Anyways I once again saw the pair of shoes I had had my eyes on for a while but once again didn't buy but for sure will next time because I bought a dress that suits it quiet nicely (and I will wear for uni!).

I was on my way out of the shops until I spotted something from the window of a ladies wear shop, something mod, so I rushed in and couldn't believe my eyes I had found a mod dress without even trying and it was only $20. Boy way I in luck today. So here's a picture I took of it on instagram.

DIY Wednesday- Decor {Door Garland}

Recently moving into a new house, my boring plain room needed some decorating, I had found so many garland designs and decided to make one for my self, only something simple. But as I made one I thought why not also make a DIY tutorial to share my experience with others on how simple it is to make, although it is a little time consuming; measuring and cutting, it is well worth it!



Steps:
 1. First start with any pattern print page (it doesn't matter which pattern because there is no particular order) Divide the page into 3 equal segment using a ruler and pencil mark a dot every 7cm across the page and

New Fashion BUY{New Blue printed button up shirt}


A few days ago I went for a shopping trip and found this wonderful looking chambray shirt only for $17 at Kmart, it sure is something different to what I usually wear, but I thought it can't hurt to try something new, right? The light denim blue colour and white cross design print was something nice and I found I could wear it with many things :)

My sister and I also took a mini photoshoot in the backyard I was going for something sad and serious and then my sister got bitten by a million mosquitoes.

Classical Style Icon-Jackie Kennedy
22/November, marks the 50th anniversary since the JFKennedy assassination, here's a collage in memory of the beautiful Jackie O& JFK and Jackie's wonderful style.The Kennedy has become of a great interesting topic for me, I recently went to the library and bought a pile of books on the Kennedys and bought the book 'These few precious few day'- The final year of Jack with Jackie' by Christopher Andersen, I'm only at the beginning but it is written very well, it really captivates the reader, into the early events of the 1960s. Also I have borrowed the book 'Mrs Kennedy and me' by Clint Hill, I just love that book, it is also written very well and is very interesting as you get an outside view of the Kennedy's and the friendship between them it just lovely :) I do strongly recommend them to anyone interested in the Kennedy's.
