DFO Official Blogger! Jeans and a Tee, Bal Day | Pencil Skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo

Here's what I wore to for Brisbane Show Day on Wednesday:

away from blue snake print tee skinny jeans bal day bag

away from the blue balenciaga tempete storm SGH day hobo bag

Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette (New purchase)
Dress: Cotton On oversized snakeprint tee
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoes: Rubi primo ballet flats in silver
Bracelets: the usual plus blue gifted Eiffel Tower bracelet on right arm
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


Wearing my new custom necklace from Silhoupette today - it's a little silhouette of Cooper! Absolutely adore it, when it arrived yesterday I was showing everyone in the office who came up to my desk, haha. I ordered it a while ago, and as it was completely custom made it took a few weeks to arrive, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Also, I'm wearing jeans and a tee today as it's Brisbane show day - so everyone in Brisbane has a public holiday for the Ekka. Last year we went to the Ekka, but this year we stayed home. Didn't get up to much as my knee is still playing up a little, trying to do light exercise to build it up again.

Linking up with Three-fer Thursday, Friday's Fancies, Friday's Fab Favourites, Friday's FiveCasual Friday and Fashion and Faith today.

Last worn: blue sunniessnake print tee, skinny jeans, silver flats, Balenciaga day bag.





Here's what I wore to work today:

Accidentally slept in this morning, so got ready in half the time and grabbed a very quick couple of photos before running to work. Didn't notice the hair over my face until afterwards...but at least I made it to work on time :)

You may have noticed a new badge on my blog in the top right, or on my instagram ;)


I'm a blogger for Brisbane DFO! I'm so excited! I often shop the local factory outlets at Brisbane airport, to buy new clothes or presents or things I need for trips. It's somewhere I make sure to take my friends and relatives to when they visit, as there is always something to buy and lots of bargains with things up to 70% off!

The majority of my wardrobe consists of sale purchases, and a lot of them come from DFO. To provide an example, the snakeprint tee I wore Wednesday, and the top and pencil skirt I'm wearing today are all DFO purchases!

Very excited about this new role and looking forward to sharing more about DFO with you in the coming weeks. Thank you to all of my new and long term readers for supporting me and making this possible :) As always, if you have any questions or comments or suggestions, the comment box is there.


Last worn: sheer white top, Review pencil skirt, studded flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier hobo.

  8. You look so chic in that animal print top and silver flats ---
    and there is something so careless and boho (in a good way) in your second outfit . I think its the top.

  16. Hi Mica. Great news about your new DFO blog role. Will your blog posts for DFO be on this site or on the DFO one? Sorry if that's a silly question, I just didn't want to miss them :D. I really like your second outfit with the pink bag. Really like what you did with you hair that day too!
