Saturday and Sunday: Fright Night Jeans and Tee, Colour Blocked Maxi Dress

Combining two days outfits into one, so a lot of pictures today!

Here's what I wore to go to Fright Night at Movie World theme park on Saturday:
TopWildfox Skeleton grunge long sleeve black tee
PantsVero Moda at Asos Burnt Ochre orange jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Deep Purple MAC

We had so much fun at Fright Night! For this year, the entire theme park was turned into the zombie apocalypse - there was smoke, zombies and lots of mazes to get lost and scared in. I have some photos on instagram here if you want to see more.

We went because my friend loves scary movies and Halloween and really wanted to go. She wasn't scared once, but I jumped a lot in the mazes when there were people jumping out at you and lots of loud noises! I'm not a scary movie fan  at all, but it was still good as there were a lot of amazing costumes and zombies walking around in the foggy park.

The psycho 3D maze was my favourite though. You put on 3D glasses and walked through a maze as the walls moved and people with masks that glowed in the dark would pop out right next to your face, but it was more fascinating than scary. The highlight was when the 3 macho guys at the front of our line dissolved into hysterics when one of the neon mask people sat at the side of the path and blocked our way, we all walked out laughing!


The tee was last worn here, pants here, shoes here and bag here.


Here's what I wore on Sunday:
NecklaceJuicy Couture bonsai charm on a gold chain, both gifted from my bestie
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge bracelet in black and white and Oscar's Law bracelet
Dress: Cotton On Colour blocked maxi in black / Algiers blue
ShoesAsos metallic Freestyle leather sandals
Bag: Vintage Chanel chevron evening bag

Close up of accessories and bag:

Sunday was relaxing after the very late night on Saturday. We went to the shops, took Cooper to the groomers and relaxed in the hammock in the back yard for most of the day. And of course, Church Online in the evening.

I really like the hi-lo hemline on this dress, although the photo doesn't show it off too well. It was the perfect lightweight dress for the heat today.

Hope you all had a great weekend - the weather in Brisbane has been fantastic!


The sandals were last worn here and bag here. It's the first time I've worn the dress as it's a new purchase.

My friend and I went to the Brisbane Frock Up vintage fair today.

Although I didn't buy everything I wanted I picked up a gift for my bestie and a really cute jacket for myself. I put a few pictures of what we saw up on instagram if you're interested, @awayfromblue.

Today I shopped the Reebonz Australia Brisbane sale in my lunch break with a few colleagues. It was a really good sale! There were so many people there and so many bags and accessories to choose from. I also had the chance to meet some of the lovely Reebonz staff. Even though the sale was busy they took the time to chat to me about the sale and bags in general, and they had some lovely input on the possible purchases I tried on. Everyone was so friendly. 


I took a few photos and put them on the Away From the Blue Facebook page, you can see them all here or by clicking on the image below.


One of the lovely ladies working at the sale helped me choose a bag. When I saw how great this colour looked against her black outfit, I had to buy it. I created a little video reveal, I hope you enjoy it!




The jeans and jacket were last worn together here, scarf was last worn here, top here, shoes here and bag here.

Really happy with this outfit today, the only thing I wished was different was the bracelets I chose. The Mimco bracelet is quite chunky and I had to do a lot of typing today. Ended up taking the bracelet off at my desk so I could type easier. Maybe need to keep it for weekend wear, which is a shame as it's a gorgeous piece! Do you have jewelry you keep just for the weekends?

The jacket was last worn here, jeans here, shoes here, scarf here and the bag was last worn here. This is the first time I've worn the tee.

(Image from a previous time when I have worn these accessories, I wear these together a lot)

Thank you to those who wrote lovely comments about my friend Nancy on yesterday's post. I feel so badly for her being in this situation.

Was cold today so I decided to wear leggings under my dress instead of tights. Remember leggings aren't pants! ;) I like how it's styled at asos with bare legs, will need to try that on a warmer day.

Thought the belt was a good idea this morning but reviewing the photos I'm not so sure, maybe I should have left the dress loose and un-belted. What do you think?

Cooper helped with outfit pictures today. His little shirt reads "Talk to the paw", it's too cute!

One day, two outfits

Busy Saturday today! I wore one outfit during the day and swapped to another in the evening. Does anyone else do that? :)

Here's what I wore to vote in the state election, run some errands and take Cooper to the groomers:
Singlet: Oscar's Law pink ladies singlet (from http://www.oscarslaw.org/)
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual
Jeans: Jeanswest
Thongs: Cotton On
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in Aquamarine with python embossed leather from shopbop
Can of solo: fundraising BBQ!

DH snapped this as we were enjoying a quick bite to eat at the BBQ after voting, that's why I'm sitting on a wall with a can of solo! hehe.


Cooper looks much better after his grooming - and he can see again! His face was getting too fluffy, he was really overdue a good cut.

Here's a quick before and after:
He's much happier after!

We are eading out to a friend's for dinner and drinks tonight so I changed what I was wearing. Cooper always wants cuddles after being at the groomers and although I love it, it means I get covered in cut hair. Not a good look for going out.

Here's what I'm wearing to dinner:
Top: just jeans black lace trim singlet
Bracelets: the usual
Pants: Burnt Ochre orange pants from Vero Moda at Asos
Wedges: Ninewest "Quicken" wedges in natural
Bag: vintage Chanel chevron evening bag

And now I have to go or I will be late. Have a great Saturday night everyone :)

Overdressed, featured video

The rain continued this morning and an umbrella was needed, so I dressed warmly. Went shopping at lunchtime with my friend K and the sun came out making it very warm - I think I was too quick to pull out my winter woolies! Definitely overdressed for the weather.


Here's what I wore today:
Top: Vintage flower print sweater from the Thrifty Kitten
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly Double tour bracelet in rubis
Jeans: Sass and Bide "Neon Nights"
Shoes: Ninewest facinate glitter ballet flats (Better pic here)
Bag: Balenciaga Coquelicot 2011 RH Velo from Reebonz


Closeup of accessories:

Reebonz and Reebonz Australia featured my Chanel video on their facebook pages this week - so exciting! If you haven't seen it yet you can check it out below:
Just a short video showing what fits inside my vintage Chanel flap :)

Now I'm very glad it's Friday - looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

Striped Maxi Dress

I am in love with this maxi dress! I saw Reebonz had a Suboo sale a few months back and although I'd never heard of Suboo before the prices were cheaper than the sale prices on the Suboo website itself so I thought I'd give this dress a go.

The dress had to be altered as I'm so short, so this is it back from the tailor for it's first outing. Perfect for a relaxing Saturday and dinner with the in laws in the evening.


Dress: Suboo Riviera Nautical Maxi dress from Reebonz
Hat: vintage 1950's sunhat from The Thrifty Kitten $15 sale last week
Necklace:  long black multi chain necklace from Indigo Rose Design
Bracelets: the usual plus fushia jade stone bracelet from Indigo Rose Design
Shoes: Balenciaga sorbet RGGH studded sandals
Bag: Chanel vintage quilted lambskin flap also from Reebonz

I'm not a hat person but I made an exception for this stunning hat - perfect for keeping the sun off my face on a hot sunny day like today. It has the honour of being the only hat I've purchased.

Hope you all had a lovely Saturday :)

Neon pink striped tee

Casual Friday today! My sister came over for dinner and we had a night of playing the Wii and watching a movie. We watched "The devil wears Prada" as it was on TV. I love the outfits in that movie so much! Really nice way to start the weekend :)

Here's what I wore today:
Tee: Jeanswest Ruth striped tee in pink and
Necklace: Chanel (from Reebonz)
Bracelets: the usual plus my new Balenciaga Silver Giant Triple Tour Bracelet in Rose Bruyere from HGBags Online
Jeans: Sass & bide "straight up"
Shoes: Asos flirt leather sandals
Bag: Chanel vintage quilted lambskin flap from Reebonz

Think next time I wear this tee I'll need to wear skinnies with it - a little too much slouchiness going on here!

Closeup of accessories:
Hope you had a lovely start to the weekend :)

Orange pants, pink nails

I have a small confession. I bought these pants at Asos thinking that they were red pants, not orange. I was using a different computer that evidently had major issues showing colours. I think I love them even more than the red ones though!


Here's what I wore today:
Singlet: Sass & Bide Musical Genius tank
Necklace: Black multi chain necklace from Indigo Rose Design
Bracelets: the usual
Jeans: Burnt Ochre orange pants from Vero Moda at Asos
Bag: Vintage Chanel chevron evening bag
Nail polish: Chanel 535 May pink polish (gift from my bestie)


Closeup of accessories on the polish on my nails:


I have owned 2 pairs of bright pants before: a bright pink pair when I was much younger that I loved, and a red pair of Ripcurl ones a few years ago. I no longer have either, and I doubt I would fit into them if I did.

Here's an old pic of the red ones:


What do you think is better, red pants or orange pants? Could I justify buying a red pair too?

Tiki Style in a maxi dress

Today's outfit is my entry into the Frivolous Friday challenge over at the Fashionoclast. This week's theme is Tiki Style!

I thought it would be wonderfully easy until I realised I gave all my hula girl costume accessories to my mum when I returned the grass skirt she lent me. But the show must go on so I threw on the loudest dress I own (recent purchase actually) and a flower in my hair to make a challenge-worthy outfit.

What I wore today:

Dress: Somedays Lovin White Heart tiger Maxi dress (modified and worn strapless as it's much too long otherwise)
Flower in my hair: Frangipani from the tree in the garden
Necklace: Juicy Couture charm on a chain, both gifted from my bestie.
Bracelets: the usual plus some labradorite ones made by a talented friend
Shoes:  Asos flirt leather sandals (hidden by the flared hem of the dress)
Bag: vintage Chanel chevron evening bag
Cute fluffy doggy: Our adopted Shih Tzu cross Cooper.


Closeup of accessories:


Was the perfect thing to wear for a BBQ lunch at the in-laws house. We spent the evening relaxing in the back yard with Cooper before I had to go online for Church Online. Here's a fun picture of Cooper in the hammock with DH :)

If you do have some spare time this weekend or this upcoming week you can check out the message playing at church online - it's a really good one called 30 second theology  It's watching a bunch of moving, sad, funny and hilarious commercials from around the world and talking about them for a bit. Covers everything from parents to self esteem and beauty, safety, how precious life is and power. Good stuff! http://30secondtheology.com/
