Since returning from Europe (yeah I did), I have noticed a few subtle influences that have made it back with me and into the daily outfit. Today’s centre piece is this awesome baroque scarf which ties in nicely to my time in Prague and Rome. Both cities are drenched in baroque history but it is Rome that boasts it’s origin way back in the 1600′s. What I love about the baroque period is the detail. I am a filigree fan from way back and it is a design that never goes out of fashion. Baroque is stylish, classy and sophisticated which makes it a perfect look for the office. Selfie alert.
Teamed with a clean white singlet, navy blazer and some ring bling.
I like to tie silk scarves at the neck for a polished finish.
I heart filigree!!
So how much did it set me back? I really went all out with this one. It cost me a whole…dollar! Yes that’s right, $1 Australian dollar at the school fete. Who woulda thought?! Bargain Hunter rrreeeeooooowwwww.

If you ladies be owning dem dere big boobies, you will be all over the fact that Triumph make some of the most delicious and practical over the shoulder boulder holders in all of the big booby lands. This Saturday and Sunday they will be closing their Galleria and Joondalup stores (hey it’s the online era, this is happening), so you have a chance to snatch up some great savings.
Can’t make it in-store? Shop online au.triumph.com. Your boobies thank you! How many times did I get the word boobies in this post ey ey impressive.

I freaking love Girls. No, no, I’m not coming out of the closet tonight. I mean HBO’s latest work of genius currently filming its third season. Girls is like the modern day Sex and the City except way less glamorous. It’s so raw, so real and for anyone aged 20-30, male or female – there is something to be said for this. If you can’t relate to at least one episode, you’re probably not from this planet.
Vulture’s Kyle Hilton has kept the in-between-season dream alive by creating these awesome paper dolls of our most loved or loathed characters in Hannah, Shoshanna (best white girl name ever), Marnie, and resident rebel Jessa.
Head to www.vulture.com/2012/06/print-out-vultures-girls-paper-dolls.html to print these gems out. Hours of fun potentially guaranteed. But seriously, if you haven’t watched a Girls episode yet, we probably can’t be friends. Hop to it www.hbo.com/girls/

Now you may not know our friend Kelly but if you did, you’d understand that Kelly getting her drivers licence after 10 years of not having it is…totally a big deal! To say that we, her friends, are excited by this prospect would be to grossly underestimate the situation. So when our mate Jade emailed me and said she was more excited about this event that Kelly getting her drivers licence, I had to stop and take note.
Basically Jade and some other good souled folk are holding a charity fashion event to raise money for the Deadly Sista Girlz – a David Wirrpanda Foundation program aimed at empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls between the ages of eight and 17 years, through important mentoring, training and support programs.
The main features of the night will be entertainment from The Merindas, Elk Bell and Heavenly Strings, and a charity fashion show featuring Little Gracie, Petra Vanessie Designs, Leo & Spargo and Blair Nelson. It’s going to be from 6pm on Friday the 19th of July in the Government House Ballroom and if you ask me, I think you should definitely go!
If I was in Perth, that’s where I’d be heading on Friday the 19th because basically it’s close to my birthday, it’s for a good cause and there will be cocktails there. And we all know I love a good cocktail.
For only $60 a ticket, it’d cost you money not too – so get involved.

How cool are these giant squid earrings? I love them. So big, bright and interesting. I’ve always looked at the fishing lures in the hardware stores and thought they’d make amazing jewellery! Perth fashion creative and fellow nautical fan Claire Mueller (Bueller?… Bueller?… Bueller?) aka Capn Mueller is the brains behind the prawn.
Definitely vibing on the two toned ones, in particular the turquoise/black and silver/blue numbers! Get them here – www.redstripeclothing.com or here http://capnmueller.com
