It's a wardrobe clean out, everything must go!

Yes, more items are up on eBay for sale & auction. Tell your friends, tell your family, tell the world. I'd love to get some more wardrobe space for pretty new things (not that I have any, just for the future when I can actually afford them again).

If you wish to purchase items through the blog, I'll waive the postage fees (I'll still accept PayPal or Bank transfer payments but you don't have to go through eBay if you don't want to).

Are you on the Maxi Skirt bandwagon yet?

I think I am. Not in the sense that I've bought one but definately that I want one.

I've been through this phase before about 5-6 years ago but when I was wearing them then, they were the tiered style, that sat just around ankle height and I only owned one black one and 2 hippie style printed ones (one of which I still have and wear around the house in summer).

What clearly seems to be the style coming out now though is more of a jersey/cotton fabric in plain colours, mostly blacks and greys. My Mum recently bought one but hadn't quite worked out what to wear it with so I thought I might help her out with a few options.

My first choice has to be the basi white tee or singlet, as seen on Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie (don't be put off by the fact that Nicole is pregnant in these pics - maxi skirts work on you weather you're pregnant or not!).
I really love a monochrome outfit and with a few pieces of the right jewellery and a little pair of sandals, this sort of outfit really can make the transition from the cooler months into Summer an easy one.

One other look I have seen a lot on a few fashion blogs lately is the black maxi skirt with stripes on top. It's such a cute look, especially when teamed with a cute little hat and some shoulder embellishments like this gorgeous gal from Chictopia.

So where to you get them from? Well, keep your eyes peeled in all the usual outlets in Australia (Witchery, Sussan, Sportsgirl etc) as they are likely to start popping up everywhere once it starts getting warmer.
In the mean time though, there are a few online shopping sites selling all manner of the maxi skirt.
Asos - the Seam Detail one in particular is my favourite

Can I steal your wardrobe please?

Have been seeing a lot of celebrities wearing the skinny cargo pant lately, definately a hot new tend (although be careful - I've also seen a lot of celebrities not wearing it well!)

Leather... or Pleather?

Let's face it, it's not like the faux fur debate now is it? While I'm sure there are a number of people who are against the wearing of real leather based on it's origins, you don't see people being smeared with red paint just for wearing a leather jacket down the street (thank god). I've personally however have been debating the actual purchase of either a leather or "pleather" jacket this Winter.
When the trend came back into play last year, I saw them everywhere but alas, never found one that I thought was worthy of all that hard earned cash. In the past few weeks though I've seriously been considering spending a few bucks on a good quality 'leather look' jacket (and yes, I realise saying good quality and leather look in the same sentence is a bit of an oxymoron).
While still wanting to dress well and wear a little something new out on a weekend when you have little to no money, I figure going for a pleather jacket might be the best option. Plus, on the off chance that for some reason I decide after a few years it's totally not the right look or style for me, I won't feel so bad for forking out hundreds of dollars for one!

And so it's to a few Aussie websites I treked recently to see what is out there in the faux leather department. I have to tell you - you'll be surprised.
After taking a look at a number of these in store, not only do they meet the budget friendly shopping I've been having to do lately but they so easily pass for the real thing, even a cow would do a double take. Check out a few real and fake ones I've got my eye on....

Wardrobe clean out sale

Hi everyone

It's certainly been a while so I apologise for the lack of posts. I started a new job just over 4 weeks ago and just simply haven't had the time to write anything (I get the odd few minutes here and there to trawl the internet though so I do have a few things I'd like to load up soon, I just need the time!).

I wanted to let you all know that I'm having a little bit of a wardrobe clean out and have got some items on eBay for sale. If you have anyone who you think would be interested in these items, please pass this on!

Here is what I'm selling:

1. Sportsgirl Shrapnel Tee $25
RRP $39.95
Brand new goregeous charcoal t-shirt with holes (yes, I realise buying something with holes is odd...). Looks great with a white t-shirt underneath and jeans or jazz it up with harem pants and a khaki parka. Please note, the colours you see underneath in all images are not part of the shirt.

2. Sportsgirl Festival Cargo Pants $25
Size 8 - Worn ONCE
RRP $79.95
Great, lightweight grey pants, can be worn with the hems rolled up for the "cargo pant" look or leave them down for more of a harem pant style (ankles are elasticated). Beautiful, soft material, easy to wear in both Summer and Winter and can easily be dressed up or down.
3. Sportsgirl Black & White Stripe dress/tunic $30
Size Small - Worn twice
RRP $49.95
Cute striped stretch tunic/dress/top - looks great with leggings, stockings or even over jeans. 3/4 sleeve and round neckline, a good dress to layer under a jacket and scarf for Winter.
4. Sportsgirl "The Flash" dark denim leggings $30
Size 8 - Never Worn, Still with Tags
These sold out in stores within days. Great stretch dark denim leggings (or jeggings!) with gold zips at the ankles and elastic waist. No pockets on back or front, will fit a standard size 6 or 8.

I can post to anywhere in Australia for $5 or Express Post for $7.
If you wish to purchase something through this blog, rather than eBay, POSTAGE IS FREE! Just email me:
