"If you tell me you don't like this dress, I'm sticking my head right in the oven"

I brought this early 1960's vintage dress a few days ago in Brisbane's Retro Metro. Isn't it just amazingly girly?

I actually found myself fluttering around the city on Friday pretending to be ladylike.

Inspiration: Stepford Wives of course.

Kiss me with Apocalypse.

Yesterday Queensland had a dust storm. It looked like one of those sci-fi films where the human race has destroyed the planet and is forced to live on Mars. Now it has gone away and I am able to sit outside and eat cookies without leaving my lungs covered by a thick layer of dust.

Above; Yes I can do Spring. Outfit all thrifted besides the necklace that I brought from a friend.

Today's playlist:
Zoom- Super Furry Animals
Doledrum- The La's
A final warning- Caribou
Twisterella- Ride
Turquoise Boy- Sonic Youth
Evergreen- Brian Jonestown Massacre

How I spent my weekend

For Tash's 18th we rented out an amazing beach house in a small coastal town for a few days.

Life in the snow globe

Fishy fishy

I got a fish eye attachment today.

Yesterday Ali and I watched Alice in Wonderland. I wanted to download it a few days ago but all I could find was the porno version. I decided not to destroy my fond memories of childhood and instead went to the video store to hire out the cartoon version.

The Hive

Being underage in Brisbane I spend a bit of time at The Hive. I really like it there, it is kind of like listening to post-punk bands in your nannas house. Spoon collections, (fake wooden) taxidermy, grandfather clocks and all.


Dirty Bird

Violent Soho

Vanity Fair

Today I finished my QCS exams, which here is the exams you do at the end of high school. Other then that the past few weeks have been spent mainly doing essays. I am very much looking forward to finishing. I promise I will be less neglectful to you all and post more frequently then too!

The skirt used to belong to Tash, and the shirt I got from Box Vintage last weekend. The book I am reading is Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackery.

On the weekend I am going to see one of my favorite local (well I call Brisbane local) bands Violent Soho and hopefully Coco Avant Chanel is still playing at the cinemas so I can see that.
