And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

I feel kind of vain using so many photos, serious! But my photographer Laura Seeds did such an amazing job and I couldn’t decide which ones out of these were my favorite so I had to post up at least six of the best.

You know it used to be so hard for me to be in photos. I used to be so camera shy and self conscious. I was always worried about people seeing my European nose or my gummy smile or my double chin. But you know you can’t be scared of everything your whole life. This blog has really made me come out of my shell. Taking so many photos for my lookbook, I feel more confident, I feel happier than I have in so many years, ecstatic even!! I am also starting to get over the huge body issues I’ve had all my life (you would not believe how many times I’ve stayed cooped inside because of my “fat days”) and I can actually begin to classify myself as maybe a little bit sexy.. I hope.

Okay let’s not waver on that!

Here’s the rundown of this Egyptian-inspired outfit:

Bronze Winged NecklaceEbay, $3

Gold-Paneled Bodycon DressASOS, $18 (I had a 15% off coupon code and I also used the aforementioned currency trick)

Black Patent Belt – Target, free with a children’s dress my mother bought for herself. Yes, you heard me.

Gold Cuff – Equip, $5

Pantyhose – Woolworths, $2 (Ah bargain bin, how I love you so!)

Glitter Blocked Ankle Boots – Ice, $15 (+ DIYed to death)

Le grande total: $43!!

And I’m ready to hit the uns uns uns (clubs) with my buds, stepping out of the house while feeling fabulously parsimonious! :D Huzzah!


  1. I’ve just come across your blog, and it is AMAZING! Loving all the looks you can create with a reasonable budget.

      Thank you so much Megs, it means a lot to me :)

      I find myself wearing that necklace with almost every outfit this week! Definitely a staple for me right now.
