First up the cute vintage style flapper dress.  I always wish I lived back in the "golden days"!!   I think it is safe to say my clubbing days are far behind me!!  I love sleep too much now!!

I flicked through polyvore and found a few things I would actually wear for the  Mystery Case $50 Style Challenge.   I had planned on going to our local Salvos shop and also a Kmart but time got away and I never got the opportunity to go without my delightful children!!  My boys have some inbuilt gene from their Father which as soon as they even walk past a shop they crack an absolute wally and scream like banshees when they are little and in a pram or as they get older carry on like complete tools!!  

I got a little carried away hence the three different looks!!

Song of the day is an oldie but one I love.  I heard it yesterday when we were at 730am swimming lessons.  So relaxing and calming!!  The film clip has goats and unicorns which makes me smile!!

Linking up my contribution to the LBD Challenge and $50 Challenge with Essentially Jess for #ibot.


  1. Oh I like that black kimono! And those floral thongs. You are becoming lethal to my bank account. I want to do a style challenge and at some point I will get my act together and actually participate. I am worried I will start shopping my finds though - has this happened to you yet?

  2. I think I may need you to come shopping me with me. I'm dreading summer, mainly due to my wardrobe and changing shape. You've certainly given me food for thought and some amazing inspiration. Thanks so much for joining our latest style challenge. Just love your style!

  3. I have a couple of pairs of harem pants and I absolutely love them. I just wish that they weren't long so I could wear them in summer too! I love the outfits you've created.

  4. How fun would that vintage style flapper dress be!

  5. I love that shrug! How gorgeous is it? Wow you did amazingly well with the challenge. I struggled. I obviously need to learn a few fashion frugal tips from you. x

  6. I love the dress in the second pic. Ann I also love the flapper dress - I always wanted to be brave enough to wear one! Great work on the challenge

  7. Oh my God you are a master of the bargain shopping. You've given me some great tips here. Thank you. I absolutely adore that boho maxi dress. I NEED it in fact :)

  8. Pretty sure that Kylie Minogue wore a dress like that on with the flappy things. Flappy things? Fringe I think it's called. Total fashionista here.

  9. Im loving those kimono cardis! could also pair them with shorts or swimmers for a cute coverup

  10. LOVE your outfits girl! Loved reliving that song clip. It means a little more to me now I am older x

  11. I wish I had the confidence to wear dresses, I love that Maxi dress from Amazon. I just feel weird in them! Plus living in Tassie would mean I would likely be a sook and be freezing most days! #teamIBOT
