Bracelets: the usual plus two metal and fabric Indigo Rose Design bracelets, a gifted multicoloured woven bracelet made by my talented friend, pink fairy floss 'Plastic Fantastic' bracelet from Meekz Contemporary Jewellery, bought at the Twilight markets last night.

When we were walking around the festival today one of my sandals snapped! I was extremely lucky though as we were standing right opposite a sewing stall. The ladies there were mending and altering some clothes and kindly let me borrow a needle and thread to repair my shoe. It was quite funny as I'm not a talented sewer at all, so my friend had to capture the moment.

We had a good laugh with the ladies, as I was the third person who had stopped by with a wardrobe emergency they had helped to fix, hehe. I think there should be more of these little repair stalls dotted around the place, it certainly came in very handy today. My shoes lasted for the rest of the day, but maybe won't last much longer which is a shame as I wear them a lot and they go with so much. Will need to look for a good replacement! Any suggestions?

The jacket was last worn here, singlet here, jeans here, shoes here and clutch here.
