Double Post Up ~ 52 Challenge and Sweet Style

So I've been a bit slack with the creativity challenge. I'll put my hand up for that. I was given a Blythe Doll for my birthday by my wonderful girlfriends and I was inspired to make her some new clothes. The first pic is her (now called Luna) straight out of the box. And the second is her in a new stylin dress and earrings I made for her. I went on an Etsy retail therapy binge this week and bought her heaps of new clothes and shoes. Stay tuned for more Blythe goodness.
My super cool Aunty is here and we went out for dinner and a few drinks last night. I was instructed to put my party gear on, after a few costume changes, this was my choice.

Long sleeve top - Target
Cardi - Jay Jay's
Skirt - Burlesque Baby
Shoes - Burlesque Baby
Tights - Supermarket
Earrings - Dangerfield

Sunday Style

I'm off for afternoon tea to my friend's house. It's her birthday! Yay! Happy Birthday Bella! (The italian meaning for beautiful, not the mopey, vampire obsessed teen idol). So here is some Miss Lau funky styles, not for everyone, but I like it...

Scarf - gifted once apon a time, many moons ago
Pinny - op-shopped
Long sleever - Target
Cardi - Jay-Jays
Jeans - hand-me-downs (total score)
Boots - RMK - these are the best boots ever, I have had them for about 6 or 7 years, and they are made of the softest leather and are super comfortable.
Clips - Poppy and Bea - super cute, red, squirrels

Miss Lau's Life Lessons Learnt

1. Spend more than $10 on an umbrella.
2. My Cambodian Adidas are not particularly water proof.
3. When you buy a boxed set of something, always check the box before going home.
4. A whole bottle of champagne on an empty stomach results in a busted ass hangover.

And one from my bestie Liz...
5. Always pee before getting in the car to drive somewhere.

Please leave a comment and let me know your life lessons learned this week.

Style Bite

So I have had a big few days out on the interwebs and have discovered some super cool stuff. I am now enamoured with Lady Smaggle. I love her sense of style and whimsical elements to her blogging. I like the idea of a weekly style update, if I am out and about on the town, or whenever I pull together a super cool outfit. I recently was given a tripod, so that makes life a whole lot easier to take my own photo, if no one is around to do it for me. I also have some super stylin' friends who may feature as guests. Watch this space!
Here is the outfit I wore to my work dinner on Friday night.
Flat boots - given to me by an Aunty
Dress - Bought in Melbourne
Cardi - Cotton On
Necklace - Made by Maddabling
Double layer of tights coz it is so freaking cold here at the moment.
I love this dress. The pattern is actually skulls, but a first glance you don't really see them. I plan to change the buttons as I am not a fan of gold and the style of button doesn't suit the dress. I'll keep you posted when I do.

A lovely birthday gift.....Feeling V.Spoiled

As I mentioned in my previous post I recently turned 30. My divine friend Samara of Maddabling sent me the most gorgeous handmade gift and card. You can read all about it here on her blog. I'll post a photo of me wearing it, as it will go perfectly with my outfit tonight!

Week 15 - 3 weeks late

So I have been super slack and as such I have been not creating or blogging! In the last 3 weeks I have only created one thing! and my creative space is an absolute mess! But I woke up this morning with renewed motivation and a true desire to get back on the creative bandwagon. I have heaps of inspiration going on not only with jewelry making but also crafting and fashion. Stay tuned for more exciting things borne from hours on the interwebs!
Here is my only creative effort for the last 3 weeks.
A few years ago, I commissioned my friend's Mum to make me some lampworked pink hearts. I had the intention of making a chunky bracelet. So in my lampy stash they sat, occasionally being fondled and often being dreamt of. I recently turned 30 and wanted something "statement" to wear to my party. I raided my stash and pulled a few elements together, and this was the result. I love it very much, it's quite tactile and makes noise when I move (which I love, I'm weird I know). The mixed metals things is borne out of dwindling findings supplies rather than true design, but I like the effect.
