I know I say it all the time...

But I think this is my favorite Spell piece, EVER! I am well aware that my blog has spiralled into Spell only lately, but I just can't help myself! (I am hoping to turn this around when I get a new piece from Nine Lives Bazaar though :D ) in the meantime, here I am again. In more Spell, being as awkward as ever and loving every minute of it hahaha. Apologies for all the pics but I love this dress so much, if you're on the fence, it's a yes from me. I picked up a medium because I like things to be a little bigger and it is perfect :) I'm taking a road trip at the beginning of December from Sydney to Brisbane and this is definitely coming with me!! Driving from Sydney to Brisbane and dropping in on Byron for two nights, I just cannot wait to get back. Dropping in on my favorite stores and then finishing up with a few cocktails at Miss Margarita are top of the list!

Kiss the Sky


Hi! I've had a super busy couple of months, and I am in the middle of exams, anddd my face wasn't really doing the right thing by me in most of these photos as usual, but I couldn't not share. This Kiss the Sky mini by Spell has probably got to be one of my fave Spell pieces ever. I'm always a bit iffy on getting short dresses because somehow I have a long body and quite long legs, so they are always really short on me, but I broke my rule and I'm glad I did! Also, I got these boots about four years ago secondhand in Byron and then when I came back to WA they went missing in the cave that is our house right up until yesterday. I had been searching high and low for them and then all of a sudden I walk into my dad's work room and they are there in plain sight! They remind me of the most random night that I had with my two friends Jess and Belle in Brunswick Heads. One of my favorite places in the whole world :D I am off to the wedding of one of my very good friends today so I have to go get ready (read: cry like a baby, happy tears) but hopefully I will be back very shortly to bring you some more of my pasty unedited legs and loyal dogs hehehe

A June Afternoon

I'm baaaaack. All hands on hips. (You can relate to not knowing what to do with your hands right guys...) It's been such a long time! I've been busy finishing off my first semester of uni online and working too. In the meantime I have bought a couple of delicious pieces that I really wanted to share, including this rad long sleeve Spell playsuit! I don't think I will be able to wear it without tights for too much longer though it's starting to get too cold. (My legs are already well and truly in pale winter mode as you can see hehehe but I'm always doing it for the awkward pale girls.) I'm off to Melbourne in a few weeks for a mini break so I'm starting to be on the lookout for some versatile bits and pieces to layer up, stay tuned!

Girl Power

Hey guys :D
me again! In would you guess it, Spell of course. This playsuit is absolutely and utterly so beautiful! I originally wanted the other cut and was a bit bummed when it sold out so when these off-the-shoulder babies came up I knew I had to have one and the pink is just divine. I played around and popped it with a few different things, Spell belt, Birkies, big hat, Dad's old leather jacket. I feel like a bit of a wally in some of these pics (but then again actually I always do) and I once again I had a little struggle with myself about whether to post them, what people would think, why are you doing this. And then I came up with the answer I always come up with. You love it. You would do it even if nobody was seeing it, you've loved playing dress ups since you could walk. A long time ago somebody told me that getting dressed is a really important part of your day, getting dressed in things you love helps you feel more confident, it can be a flag you put up that says, I love this and I've taken care to pick this and I feel damn good in it. So I go on and I put these up and I hope if nothing else that you laugh with me (or judge my Spell obsession heavily hehehe I don't mind) or have the guts to put on a pair of shoes you think are too formal for going out for coffee, or sequins to the bloody supermarket. I've also been thinking a lot lately about self esteem, it's something we're looking into at uni. It's a funny thing to think about your self talk, and lately I've been trying really hard to think of myself as a babe. Haha what a sentence. Because we are all bloody massive babes! 
I know I have been talking in terms of style and appearance here, and it's hard to distinguish it all without sounding a bit shallow I think! Let me clarify here, obviously there is more to life than being ridiculously, ridiculously good looking haha, I think a babe is someone who is brave and kind and loving and who perseveres and I could list on and on and on, I know so many of them!
I also have been cranking along with #freakinbabethursday in my Insty to celebrate all the amazing women who inspire me. Anyway I think that is well and truly enough from me today hahaha 

Peace out
Kathhhhhh xx
