today I am talking about my current work staples of the non-stationery kind. i’ve recently started a new job at scene model management. essentially just helping on the desk with booking models to jobs. but also updating social media and other general help stuff. soooo, i work in an office for the first time in my life. i’d say it’s considerably more relaxed than other offices, as i wear jeans nearly every day. apparently there’s no dress code. this can be seen either as complete and utter freedom, or as not enough direction. for me, i’ve never had my entire wardrobe to choose from when going to work. in fact, in most of my dressing occasions i feel i have some sort of limitation / expectation as to what i should wear. at scene i’ve been given free reign. so in order to keep it cool and casual yet like i care about my job, i’ve been wearing completely casual outfits while adding one of the following:
a) HEELS. nothing crazy, just something to give me a little more spring in my step
b) JEWELLERY. a statement necklace in most cases, as a garnish to my t-shirt
c) LIPSTICK. the absolute easiest way to appear as though you’ve put in more effort than you have.
i must say, the other day i wore heels and lipstick. the people of the perth CBD couldn’t quite handle how much effort i had put in to my outfit. i could feel it in their eyes as they looked me up and down. that, or they liked my shoes. (hoping for option two.) still haven’t been street style snapped, so i must be missing something. joking. i take enough photos of myself. speaking of which, these images were captured with my friend’s cannon 5d mark ii and i am loving the full frame. it’s opening maddy and i’s eyes up to a whole new world of possibilities. you wouldn’t believe how dark it was when we took these. so, we are investing in a new cam. yay! we’ll keep ya posted. and if you haven’t, follow us on the gram. we tend to update that a little more than here!

the other day i went shopping with noni, ready to spend (goodness knows why, i am meant to be saving!) but after so many failed attempts at buying a pair of boyfriend jeans (the search still continues) or dressy-casual shoes, we found ourselves at the supre warehouse store. it was actually the best decision we made all day, and despite only having 10 minutes until the store closed, i managed to leave that place with 5 items in hand, all for a grand total of $25! i was amazed that everything fit so well! isn’t it ironic, i’ve been there many times before and taken about 50 million things in to the change room and only come away with maybe 1 thing that fits properly, yet i go with 10 minutes and don’t try one thing on and they’re all great. silly. silliness of life. now, these shoes however were not such a fast or cheap experience. but, i really do love them. i think they were the perfect balance of dressy-casual that i was looking for. normally i don’t find myself really drawn to the ankle strap, just because it can really cut my little legs off, yet the double strap on these manage to somehow keep my legs at a reasonable length. that or i’m blinded by how much i like them. have no doubt you will see them appear again.
in other news, maddy and i are going to do a 30 day challenge coming up. they (whoever they are) say it takes 30 days to form a habit, so we are looking to blog every day for 30 days and hopefully by then we will be well and truly in the swing of things to blog every day for the rest of our lives! well, for a while. we will see how that goes. hopefully it goes nothing like the detox we recently embarked on. 7 days managed to shrink down to 1… i know, where is our self control? well you try eating fruit for 24 hours and see how much you just WANT A PEICE OF BREAD. wow. okay, i swear i’m over it. news on detox, diet, and other food related things coming to CASA soon!
