Jacket: LIVING DOLL
Dress: SPORTSGIRL
Shoes: CONVERSE

 

My apologies for the title. But, leather jackets are cool. They just are. I feel as though a leather jacket can be worn with any outfit, ever. Even when you’re posing in front of a senior’s lawn bowls club at sunset…

So, this dress is like a big sack and I really thought I wasn’t going to wear it because, don’t get me wrong, I love loose clothing and anything that allows me to stick my stomach out without it being noticed (ample food-baby space), but this was a little too far. I’m thinking of taking the hem up so I can wear it with a belt or just as a short loose sack. But I was playing around with it and seeing how I could wear it, and the knot thing seemed to work quite well. I actually bunched it all together and tied it with a hair band on the inside of the dress. The knot on the outside was a lil too bulbous! All you need is a rubber band and voila! A brand new dress that fits around yo little curves perfectly.

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but previously I enjoyed writing my blog posts all in lower case. There is some little side of my OCD that made myself believe that the sentences looked better when they were all on one level. That somehow starting with a capitol letter and not ending with a capitol letter was not symmetrical, and therefore not okay. On the other side of my OCD is the need for things to be at least somewhat grammatically correct and, well it’s time that I grow up and write with capitol letters where appropriate like the rest of the adult world. (Plus I was starting to write everything in lower case at work and that wasn’t really flying with the clients.) So, here I am, with all my start and stop sentences, made up words, and gangster abreviations, yet writing like a real adult.

cross my leather heart. again.

Outfits,  Summer

so here are the rest of the photos. maddy and i were quite the hilarious park-goers on this day, running and jumping from various things.

tshirt: gorman
skirt: asos
necklace: lovisa
shoes: converse
lipstick : nars ‘dragon girl’

i got this leather skirt while asos was having a leather promotion. which also meant i bought a pair of shoes a jacket a belt and a dress. i find it hard to resist a good deal. especially those petrol station ones. i mean why buy one bar of chocolate when you can get two and cut costs. it’s a no brainer. anyway. on the topic of chocolate, that is something i’m not eating for a little while. i am noticing myself thinking about food at all hours of the day, and i think it has to do with my sudden realisation that i no longer am studying anything and i am at home more than usual. therefore i am nearer to the kitchen and susceptible to it’s undeniable availability. so. in order to bring me back to the old dani, the one who didn’t check the pantry obsessively in hope to find a mysterious item that was not there five minutes ago, i am being a vegetarian for a week. so it’s day 1 and i’m blogging in my otherwise eating time. i feel like this could be a great thing for all of us. but please, tell me i’m not alone in this?
another post is under construction so i shall see you soon.

hi. so there was a great part of my friday. i went to the city and caught up with my friend dave, and we ate great food and took photos as the day turned goregously sunny. firstly was sushi at aisuru in northbridge. i love firstly how black and white the space is, but also how they include trendy new flavours in to the sushi that make it a crafty blend of modern and traditional jap. this was followed by some photos in alleyways and other curious spaces (thank you, david). and finished with some chai and cookie at venn. a place i’d heard of but never been to. it’s a crazy hybrid empire of homewares, food, drink and art, which really impressed me. above you can see me instagramming a photo. something i seem to be brilliant at. instagram. if you’re interested, my user name is simply danielleosullivan. i’m pretty darn good at updating that thing.
so i’ve realised that many things i put on my blog tend to be ‘blog outfits’ where i don’t include my absolute every day wear items. so here’s a little taste of how i tend to look most days. i could live in jeans and converses. and fun tshirts are just fun. also i’m trying out a new way of telling you what i’m wearing. instead of including it in my word jungle i will make it loud and clear at the top. also will include links to these various garments wherever i can.
