AKA Addicted to Sample Sales!
Last weekend I visited two sample sales (addicted much?) The BNKR sample sale and the Landes Warehouse sale. In total I scored about 10 new items for less than $100, score!
Below are two of the items from the Landes Warehouse sale. These lace shorts by Staple the Label and a simple white dress also by Staple. Staple is one of my favourite brands and both these pieces are certainly going to be a staple in my wardrobe!
Landes Warehouse is always jam packed with bargain priced clothing from Australian labels such as Mink Pink, Somedays Lovin’, Paint it Red and more! Every time I visit i find another gem for my wardrobe.
I also purchased this classic white tee from the BNKR sample sale. Its a perfect crisp white and can be worn multiple ways, a steal at just $10!
The perfect slouch with the Naked Vice “The Modern” bag <3
Practicing my Evil Glare
I love this dress, it can be worn so many ways. With heels for a night out, with Adidas Superstars (mine are in the mail on their way to me! ) or with a classic slide.
What I Wore:
Leather Jacket from Topshop
White Tee from the BNKR Sample Sale
Lace Shorts from Landes Warehouse
Bag and Wallet from Naked Vice
Pom Pom and Belt from Sportsgirl

Instead of watching The Race That Stops a Nation, Boyfriend and I embarked on a rare day off together.
We visited The Abbotsford Convent and stuffed ourselves full at Lentil as Anything (sign the petition here, to keep this wonderful place open.)
We then wandered through the beautiful surrounding’s at the Convent, it was a perfect place to snap my very first outfit post!

I am really lovin’ a few trends that are floating around the fashion scene as of late.
Lace up Detail
I am currently on the search for a shirt (or a jumper for winter) with this amazing lace up detail.
It adds interest to any outfit and I can see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe-that’s what I tell myself anyway!
I have loved this trend for a long time now, but I have never found the perfect frayed denim… until I found these and what do you know! they are sold out! ugh.
So the search continues, I may even have to go DIY!
This trend was a hit during the recent fashion weeks. Similar to an Ellery flare, but wider and more elongated.
Kinda like wearing your boyfriends shirt!
This is a trend I am keen to try out.. one day when I am game!
I love that a wider silk tie, a bandanna or a leather string can be used in similar way, but giving a totally different look each time
Off the Shoulder
A perfect trend for summer, even better if its part of an all white ensemble.
Sara of Harper & Harley demonstrates the look perfectly here.
If you knew me well, you would know that I am ADDICTED to culottes. I have several pairs on rotation.
So it seems a bit of a no brainer to try their slimmer cousin. If they are as easy as culottes then sign me up!
I love to try out new trends, but I always try to keep my wardrobe simple and full of things that I would wear on a regular basis rather than a one off wear item. Otherwise I find that I end up with a full wardrobe of crap that I don’t wear and an empty wallet!
