OoTD No. 26 – Happy New Year!

Photobucket

Another year, eh? That means I’m (over)due for the inevitable 2011 recap! Last year I:

Bring on 2012. Onwards and upwards, I say.

On New Year’s Eve, the Boyfriend and I went out to dinner to Ms G’s. (Lightning quick review: Good, but several dishes are similar, and inferior, to dishes at other inner Sydney restaurants. Their mini bánh mì isn’t as good as Gardel’s pulled pork sliders. Their xo noodles aren’t a patch on Duke Bistro‘s.) After returning home to grab supplies, we went to nearby Sydney Park to get a panoramic view of the fireworks with a packet of glow-in-the-dark jewellery, a box of sparklers, and a bottle of fancy French perry (which I much prefer to champagne). Lovely.

This necklace is the best purchase I’ve ever made. It’s a wee bit exxy (£123; those colourful gems are Swarovski crystals) but – no exaggeration – it/I receive compliments every single time I wear it. It is absolutely spectacular.

Dress: Jibri – custom made (I’m between size 1 and 2). Old collection.
Necklace: Tatty Devine. Currently available.
Bag: Broadway Betty. Vintage.
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Uniform Glitter from Solestruck – size 10. Old collection.

On New Years Day, we invited a few mates over for a barbecue lunch at ours (BECAUSE WE HAVE OUR OWN FLAT!) before heading to a nearby warehouse party. This is my perfect dancing outfit: baggy top, stretchy leggings, lightweight accessories and high top sneakers.

I’ve loved this Anna Scholz print for months. Seeing these amazing leggings on sale was the kick in the arse I needed. TIGHTS AS PANTS FOR LIFE.

Tshirt: Sportsgirl – size large. Old collection.
Leggings: Anna Scholz – size UK18. Old collection.
Sneakers: Converse Lady Weapon from Asos – size 8. Old collection.
Fat necklace: Fancy Lady Industries. Old collection (though Natalie restocks them periodically).
Watch: TW Steel. Similar styles available.

How did you ring in the new year?

I am 1.72m/5’8″, 95kg/209lbs and I normally wear an Australian size 16/UK size 18/US size 14-16. My measurements are 107-99-120cm/42-39-47 inches.

    Lobster! Leggings of awesomeness! Love them :-) Happy New Year to you too!

    We celebrated with our traditional (my children assure me that this is the case) seafood feast at Ariane’s place (@shonias). The kids keep an eye on the time for us so we don’t completely miss midnight due to being deep in conversation.

    I’m so sick for that lobster necklace – awesome!

    Your boyfriend is v cute. What took you so long? LOL And I was going to ask about the leggings, but you know, that whole stalking thing would have gone to a new level if I started showing up in the same clothes as you…

      He’s not bad… ;) We got together when we were poor uni students, so at least four of those years don’t count.

      Hahahahaha @ your stalky ways. If you turn up with a curly mini-fro I’m going to be very suspicious.

    I feel a bit weird using this word, but FIERCE. I love the first and last photos so much. Bringing it. And those leggings are beyond amazing.

    That orange dress is glorious.

    I went to the Black Cherry Club (I may have mentioned it on Twitter…? :D), and had a delightful time even though I didn’t get around to using my dancing lessons. I then had 2/3rds of my first drink in four years, got utterly smashed and went home. Success all round, I say.

    Of course we both have an undying love for Tatty Devine. Of course we do. I love you Frances, you’re adorable. Please come to NY and play dress-up with me.

      OF COURSE WE DO. Come to Sydney and play dress up with me! I love you too, dearest Bloomie.

        Do you know I lived in Sydney a decade ago for about 6 months? One day I will plan a great return and we will shop and wear bikinis and be fat at the beach together, but until that glorious day we’ll have to play virtual dress-up.
