There is truly no point in attempting cold turkey on stripes. Everyone would know that's a lost cause. You can, however, freshen up stripes by choosing an alternate colour like equally-as-chic red & white.
A few weeks ago, whilst shopping in an extreme bad mood (strongly unadvisable if you're saving pennies), I picked up this tshirt from Zimmerman and am waiting for some warm Spring days to debut it. Perhaps red stripe and floral... red stripe and distressed blue denim... red stripe and white jeans...
How else to spice up a simple outfit than a hint of leopard and a crazy 'do...

Winter in Perth is a strange beast. The mornings are crisply cold beyond belief, yet the sun in the middle of the day is so warm that it's basically Summer. Is it just me or does that equal outfit crisis? Alright, possibly a little melodramatic, but it does mean that you're best with a few thin layers like jeans and light silk shirt (in a fancy print for bonus points), with warm woolies over the top. Carry a massive leather bag to cart around what you remove.

Epictetus We live in a beautiful state that gives us the most divine Winter weather. T & I are both loyal Perthies through and through, and it is Augusts like these that make you think by golly we have it good! (If it starts raining tomorrow, please don't blame me) S
Boooo, I'm going back to work today after a glorious week off doing next to nothing apart from my tax & hitting up Second Time Around with S, where we totally scored on the bargain front. I got these leather track pants at a piddly fraction of what they'd usually cost to the not-so-thrifty trend slave, and here you can see them fitting perfectly into my weekend garb - termed "the little schlump" (because really, that is what you end up looking like when you're under 6 foot and choose to embrace the boyfriend jean/track pant silhouette). Oh and S got some Carla Zampatti action for the wedding... Yes - we found the dream dress for my maid of honour! But no hints on what it looks like - you can all just wait for another 6 months.

Time to haul-ass to the sweatshop, have a good Monday!
As someone who used to be a strong t-bar opponent, I've swallowed my pride and am now happy to admit that t-bar flats are the bomb. T bar heels are another issue altogether, but the flats? Yes please. More intriguing than ye olde simple ballets, not as fussy as wedges or heels, t bar flats are more Alexa than Alexa herself. Time to start the search for an every day pair.
There you go, I bet you thought this post was going to be about her wicked overalls. Got you there.
