And you can be my cowgirl..
I totally missed How-Tuesdays this week! So sorry everyone! I’ll have a DIY up soon before the end of the week, I promise ;) . Moving on to further matters, I’ve tested out the camera that my darling Mikey bought me and it’s pretty fantastic! I took the first photo with that camera but the rest of them with my old camera. I hate to say I did this because the sun was going down and I didn’t have time to continually reset the 10 second timer (you had to reset it every time it ran a course because it would immediately return to ordinary shooting mode so I couldn’t just run back and press the capture button) and it would only take one photo at a time so that was my plan out the window! I managed to quickly capture some more photos before the sun went down though, which was good. So devastated though!
For this outfit, I needed something warm enough to wear at uni during the night and yet breezy enough not to overheat me during the day now that the temperature is rising. I bought this scarf a few years ago at a JayJays sale and it’s so large and snuggly and a gorgeous rusty colour. My favorite way of wearing scarves recently is to braid them (as demonstrated on the above pictures)–what’s your favorite way to tie a scarf?
Here’s the rundown:
Twin Flower Hair Clips – Mum’s
Burnt Orange Scarf – JayJays, $5
Amber Elephant Necklace – Mum’s
Gold Spike Bracelet – eBay, $2
Bronze + Wood Beaded Bracelets – Mum’s
Bronze Lightening Ring – eBay, $1.60
Gold Watch – Present from Mikey
Zara (replica) Horse Print Shirt – eBay, $11 (Currently on sale! Love the studded shoulders.)
Tribal Stitch Belt – Dotti, $6.95
Men’s Black Jeans – Jeans West, $?? (Actually my ex gave these to me.. they were straight leg but I DIYed them into a skinny leg and I wear them all the time now!)
Corelli Leather Sandals – Williams, $10!
There are so many borrowed and gifted items in this outfit that the total isn’t really worth calculating, sorry!
The genuine leather sandals were a real bargain to take note of! Williams is having a huge clear-out at the moment and everything is currently selling at 50% off the marked price (even sale items)! I love it when they have sales like this. From $100 to $40 to $20, I managed to snap up these heeled sandals at a really crazy $10! Patience is such a virtue when it comes to shopping. All good things come to those who wait, ladies!
The shirt is an interesting artifact, I have a few items of clothing from eBay marked with “Zara” on the tag, but I’m not entirely convinced that its a genuine article. Funny thing is that when I saw these tags before, I never realised that Zara was an actual notable brand that people care about, I thought it was probably just a random eBay China brand of some sort. The mustard skirt I’ve featured in a few lookbook posts is also branded Zara, hehe. But yeah, it’s a pretty good replica of the original, which is also 100% polyester. (On a side note, I see some bloggers calling it a “silk” shirt, but even the website contradicts them and really, polyester is polyester so you might as well buy the replica, really.)
That’s all I wanted to say, so over and out for now!
