Tied Up With a Bow

Cardigan: Target
Jeans: Piper @ Myer
Boots: Duo Boots
Brr! It’s one of those wild & windy days in Melbourne and I’m freezing my ass off, even in my boots, jeans and wooly sweater. We’ve got a cold weekend ahead of us and I’m regretting not putting Operation Remix Cardigan into play but I’ve got a few hours to spare on Friday so all being well I might be able to whip something up in time for Saturday.

Brooch: Forever New
In the meanwhile I can jazz up my cardigans with this splendiferous sequined brooch/hair-clip that I bought recently from Forever New . It’s a little bit glam and a little bit punk rock, and all ridiculousness, but it was cheap and cheerful and has garnered more than a few positive comments. If you wanted it to be even cheaper and more cheerful you could probably whip one up yourself with a safety pin and a bit of ribbon, but I bought this one off-the-cuff one day when I was feeling particularly drab.
I like bows. I like them a lot. They’re elegant and girly at the same time. And they’re so in vogue right now. Here’s a couple of my favourites:

And for something a little bit naughty…

  1. I love that mustard yellow cardigan… my fall wardrobe needs more mustard yellow. All I've got so far is a giant purse and one scarf in that color. I need TIGHTS. Mustard yellow tights. yes.

  2. You look fantastic- I love bows to tres cute!!

    I was thinking that it would be fun if you put together outfits and told your readers what the occasion was e.g work outfit, shopping trip, lunch with parents, footy finals pub outfit etc. Of course even if you stuck to your usual formula I would continue to tune in for inspiration 🙂

  3. Thanks so much for including my Tie One On garter belt! So fun to be featured in Australia! Actually just sent an order there yesterday 🙂

  4. Aren't they, Ms B? I've had my eye on the lace dress for a while… I may try to remix something similar come the summer months.

    Thanks Diana & _LMC 🙂

    Oh Jasie, I love the idea of mustard yellow tights! Have you tried We Love Colors? They seem to have tights of all different hues, and I've heard some very good reports from them

    Thanks for the suggestion, Sandra! I'll endeavour to mention a bit more often what I'm getting frocked up for 🙂

    Thanks Luinae!

    Me too, Heartbeatoz 🙂 It's been raining so much over the last few days that I'm starting to feel a bit waterlogged!

    Entirely my pleasure, Toad Lillie – it's the most beautiful confection!
