Paper bags and angry voices, under a sky of dust

Even though the last few days was meant to be a "break", I got barely any, if any. It was all about catching up a few weeks worth of readings - my punishment for being lazy i guess (thought we never learn do we?), with the exception of catching up with some awesome friends!


F21 ruffle knit top
Country Road pleat hem skirt
Glitter skinny belt
Zipia bow headband

I love this skirt, but the waistband is way too big; tagged as a size 8 yet I'm definitely not a small 8 if an 8 at all. What's up with vanity sizing these days, I swear they're getting worse as the seasons go by!


People often say that one doesn't appreciate what one has got until it's long gone, but it could also be said the other way - sometimes you only realise how much what you had sucked when it's gone. So wipe away the tears, because in no time you'll understand exactly what i mean=)

It's always a learning experience... whether it as a good or bad goodbye.

I love your headband... it's really beautiful. And the skirt is so pretty. xoxo

I love this top! I don't remember seeing it at Forever New or else I would have nabbed it!

I love the headband as well!

I am being selfish in saying this...but vanity sizing is good for me as according to normal size charts, I am supposed to be a size 18 or 20.

It must be frustrating for petite girls like you though!

I wish more retailers cater to a wider size range!

bowsnhearts, from your photos you definitely aren't a size 18/20! I'm sure you're jsut as gorgeous in real life:)
