Classic Minnie

shoes Guess who's finally at the stage in their assignments where they can stop panicking because the bulk of the work is finished 3 ish days before it's due. ME THAT'S WHO!  These assignments have been hanging over my head like huge dark clouds filled with cold, anger and sadness for the last month and a bit, but now that feeling has gone away. Even though they're not done yet, I feel so free!

Apart from wining at assignment time management, I played gig 5/5 for this week. This gig was at the Maitland Bowling Club for a fundraiser some people were hosting. It was an interesting gig. We played 3 short (for us) sets of music. For two sets we were kind of sort of background music. In our last set, the host managed to get everyone on the dance floor which was super fun.

Believe it or not, this outfit is a "I've woken up late, and I have no time to get ready" outfit. We had to be at the venue at 11, which meant I had to wake up at 15 to 9 so I could get ready and leave at a leisurely pace. Instead I woke up late, and rushed to get ready. I pretty much always wear red, black and white when I'm running late because those are the 3 most prevalent colours/tones in my wardrobe.

I'm also wearing my concert makeup because I couldn't be bothered removing my makeup after the gig.

spinny skirt detail

As you can see in the photo above, I'm actually wearing a petticoat under this skirt to give it more poof. This skirt looks pretty terrible without a petticoat. It hangs a bit limp and doesn't have much shape. I made the petticoat out of the black version of the tulle I used for the skirt so that they kind of matched with a slight contrast.

I don't really have much else to say right now. I'm pretty spent, and that feeling isn't going to leave for a few weeks (It'll take me a few weeks to recover from my fortnight of crazy) so apologies in advanced if my writing dies (not that it's very good to begin with :P)

IMG_0726 I rediscovered a pair of my favourite shoes this week. You may be wondering how I misplaced them seeing as they're super cute, quite large, and have a bright dusty rose pattern on them. About 6 months ago my Dad decided to "Organise" my shoes, which involved putting a bunch in boxes against my will (there was a period when I was removing the boxes/he was putting them back every other day). Anyway, eventually this silent argument wore me down, and I gave up, hence why I haven't worn these shoes in forever.

This is the outfit I wore to Uni on Wednesday. I had one prerogative when I put this outfit together, and that was to stay warm, which I managed to do. I'm really not enjoying the icy temperatures  that Australia is experiencing at the moment. It's really cold, and getting colder, and I'm just not dealing all that well with it.

One last thing! If you're in the Newcastle Area tomorrow evening, my band Vanishing Shapes has a gig! (This is the first gig we've played all month) We're playing at Church of Groove with Bud Petal, who are a pretty sweet folk band. If this sounds like something that would take your fancy, you can find out more deets on the facebook event page.
