I'm so excited to be taking part in Chictopia's 12 Days of Chic campaign! To celebrate the recent launch of Chictopia Shop, basically a marketplace for members of the community to buy and sell, Chictopia are partnering with a handful of bloggers as well as some well known brands including Need Supply, Pixie Market, Storets, American Apparel and Shop Akira for a campaign. From November 28th, and over the next 12 consecutive days, the Chictopia site will feature a dedicated theme (think different trends, gift ideas) each day and offer special promotions from shop sellers. Keep an eye out on the site from Monday!

(Kookai leather jacket - F21 tank top - Topshop coated skinnies & platform heels - Regal Rose ring - eBay bag)
Experimenting with new lippy. Was enamoured with the idea of bubblegum pink but pretty sure it wouldn't suit my colouring so I went for a darker magenta instead.

(Dotti sleeveless shirt - F21 shorts - Topshop suede pumps - Alexander Wang Rocco)
Still in disbelief. I've casually stalked this bag ever since it first came out so many months ago. Never really entertained the notion of owning it since 1) the price and 2) silly shipping restrictions on so many websites (umm apparently haircalf items can't leave the US even though it was imported from China in the first place? Yeah okay...) Couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered it amongst ForwardForward's sale last week for half price. Free shipping and no country restrictions? The rest kinda went by in a blur and I found myself on the other side of the checkout process.

(ASOS knit sweater - Glassons shorts - Factorie for NZNTM feather charm necklace - Topshop platform heels - Alexander Wang bag)
Yes, it's the Podium platforms again, but they are just so damn comfy. (Speaking in relative terms here of course, ladies, in the world of high heels...) Saw that they came out in silver and gold versions as well, and if it weren't for the damn scratch danger factor I would be all over them. And as you can see, my latest jewellery phase is with feathers. A bit more delicate things than I am used to, but they are good for injecting a bit of colour and whimsy.

(Military blouse c/o Button N Thread Boutique - Topshop denim shorts & platform heels - leather bag from eBay)
A certain somebody (who has a camera...) convinced me that it would be okay to wear these very short shorts in public. A questionable decision, upon reflection. Did attempt to combat the teensy-weensyness of them with the most conservative, feminine-looking thing I could find though...

Tamed the chaos of my shoe collection with new shelving. Should have done this ages ago but the cost of it was equivalent to maybe two pairs of shoes so I was always reluctant about it.
Initially, I wanted a cubby hole system but that would have been way too expensive and take up too much room I didn't have. So I actually got a pantry unit instead from the local hardware store, left the doors off it, and installed extra shelves inside. The result is not quite so glamorous but it works for me. Will save the Carrie Bradshaw closet idea for when I actually own a house.
And yeah, these go two rows deep. Economisation WIN.
