Hey Ho, the wicked witch is dead.

All day I've been feeling like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. It's these shoes - They're so red and shiny (and perfect) with small clicky heels. The shape, colour and height remind me of the pair from the movie. Coupled with my stockings, I could totally be the wicked witch of the east.  

I'm sure I've said this multiple times - I associate "strong independent woman" with the sound of high heels. It takes a certain amount of confidence to wear a loud shoe. You can't sneak around when your shoes make noise. Everyone knows you're coming (because they can hear you). 

As far as heel go, this pair are on the quieter side. You can definitely hear me before you see me, but the noise isn't distracting or obnoxious.

The shirt I wore today is a new find from the thrift shop. The bodice shares the ombre of the sleeves, but is covered by my skirt here.

Playing Catch Up

shoes This is an outfit I wore almost exactly a week ago, which I haven't posted because 1)tech fails 2) life stuff.

My band had a photo shoot with Kingdom designs last week (He's the guys who shot the Sounds of Newcastle series which Vanishing Shapes was involved in), and this is what I wore. He's a really cool dude, and a really awesome photographer. We were actually quite lucky to nab him because a few days later he hopped on a plane to South Korea via Hong Kong (so he could visit family/do some study).

In other news, my apartment finally has internet!!!! it took us over a month, and made my upcoming phone bill really expensive, but it's here and we're using it :3

I still can't quite believe our time in the dark ages is over. It's so lovely not having to travel to use the internet!

South Coast Adventures

wpid-pict_20150403_170456.jpg Guess what I'm doing right now. Posting from a place that isn't my house because I'm on a holiday! (well, technically speaking. I'm still doing my uni work/ flute/ piccolo practice, I'm just not doing it at home)

I'm staying in some Cabins with my parents and friend Katherine in the town of Kiama, which is like 2ish 3 ish hours from Sydney. My parents came down yesterday, and Katherine and I came down today (I couldn't move work, which is why I came down later)

We had quite the adventure getting to our destination, all caused by Sydney Trains Technological and scheduling incompetence (Being a public holiday, you generally expect some public transport failures, but what happened today was a bit ridiculous) . We hopped on our train at Pointclare station (which was already running late), then we were delayed at Hornsby. Now, our train was meant to Terminate at Central, which would allow us to simply leave our train, walk to the other platform and continue on our journey. We did not end up at Central. We ended up Olympic Park, which is nowhere near Central Station, then the train that was going from Olympic park to Central was 7 mins late.

Anyway, despite the difficulties we had getting down, we're here now.

One last thing, if you're in Sydney Thursday next week, my band has a gig at Symposium Bar, which is in Chippendale. Here's the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1415341358774158/ Hope to see you there!
