Autumn Stripes

Autumn has settled into sunny days that still have that crisp, fresh feel to them. This sits better with me than utterly stinking hot.


I found this dress, along with a bunch of other clothes for half price at the local Salvos. I think because I was (ahem) dropping off a box of donations at the time, the op shop Gods smiled down upon me and rewarded me with bounty.


I've actually been doing quite a lot of wardrobe culling lately and I'm starting to see where the real gaps in my closet are. Of course it would be easier to fill these gaps if one were not a penniless student with an addiction to Disney DVDs.


The super cute etsy necklace was a Christmas gift from my mum.

Lazy Sunday

Yesterday I fully embraced the term Lazy Sunday. I lounged on my bed and read an entire book in just about one sitting. I then got a bit teary as there will be no more Maeve Binchy novels. 


I also snapped some poorly lit photos around the bedroom. Let's call it romantic lighting, hey.

Cool Change

At last! Sweet relief from the heat. Not the dead of Winter that I am craving but hey, sweaty beggars can't be choosers.


I snagged this dress on eBay a few weeks ago. Mustard with lace details? Thaaaank you.

I'm Melting!

This is the only photo I half way liked of an outfit I wore over a week ago.

dress: luvalot, vest: savers, shoes: savers

Shortly after it was declared Melbourne would be entering a heatwave of 10 straight days above 30 degrees. I nearly cried. 

I do not cope well with hot weather. And style wise I loath it. Since I don't live right alongside the beach I can't get away with swanning around in my bathers. And I struggle to find a compromise between something that doesn't weigh me down in the heat and something that looks okay that I haven't already worn three times. Added to that, any make up just melts off your face - even BB cream - and my brain just up and stops functioning after it hits 27.

Basically hot weather = hot and cranky Alice.

All I can do is gulp down iced tea and mineral water and reassure my self winter is coming whilst stalking knits on etsy and asos.
