A-Tisket, A Tasket, A Green and Yellow Basket

I hope that everyone's weekend has been going well. In between lolling on my mattress and eating delicious, delicious Pringles, I've been looking for more things to put in the store and thinking about how great life will be when my two latest purchases arrive. For once, they aren't items of clothing.

For my birthday, I wanted two things: this book and the Buffy Monster box set.

Last night, it was my friend's 20th/24th respectively and I had a marvellous time, eating Mars Bar cheesecake and sitting in the rain (it wasn't actually raining, raining, just lightly spitting). Speaking of which, spitting is such a weird descriptive for light rain. This is what I wore.

Blouse - thrift/altered, skirt - thrift, collar - selfmade & shoes - Shoobiz. Also RIP Shoobiz I was pretty cut when I heard on the news that they are closing all their stores. Please someone tell me that I misheard or that it was all a horrible, horrible dream.

Sadly it is true. There was a massive queue out the door of the Brisbane store last week as people fought over the spoils of the defeated.

They can't close! I want those flats that you have on! The double strap is quite fantastic.

i know it's pretty sad about shoobiz! They're not shutting ALL stores from what I read, but i'm guessing most! was 50% off everything at the Knox City store, but not a thing in size 8, sigh!

A) This outfit is adorable and I think the addition of the collar really ties it all together beautifully.

B) I love that you appear to be posing for outfit photos on your kitchen counter, way to think outside the box ;)

C) Those shoes are WAY cute, what a bummer the store it closing :(
