If you refer to this post, I was rambling about staples and tables and what not. Turns out staples can be outfits, because Staple the Label is in fact pretty amazeballs. Super loving on this tee by them.
Probably sick of seeing this skirt but it's pretty much one of my favourites. I do love a flowy lacey skirty dream. Yes I sure do. In fact I love it almost as much as I love protecting my eyeballs from the harsh UV rays that are all around us. Yes these shades are the best for that plus they are BE AUT IF UL. Yes. capslock was entirely necessary. Everything is better in capslock. EVERYTHING (see.)
Too much rambles too much wine. Can you believe it's New Years Eve tomorrow night? It actually shatters my entire universe that it's nearly 2012.
If I don't blog again until next year ( ho ho ho) have a super amazing night. Or Else!

After being without a decent camera for a very long time, and relying heavily on my good pal Mr Iphone, I was pretty super happy to receive this rad camera for Christmas from the ever lovely Mr Stompface.
I highly recommend, it is freakin' cool. And also very beautiful.

When you have two ridiculously hot days in a row, it becomes too hot to put together any sort of outfit.
So I was happy when this arrived in my Market HQ package yesterday. Super comfy, perfect summer table. I must be tired because by table I obviously mean staple. Not the kind you use to hold pages together, dresses can not be used to hold together documents. Unless it is a dress made entirely out of documents. But that is an entirely different story.
Can you tell I'm delirious? It's the heat, THE HEAT I TELLS YA.
This lacy dress is pretty much the funnest dress in the world. Anything with tutu's are alright by me!
Unfortunately the only photos I got of me wearing it were a couple of instagram ones and some of me playing on the cross trainer.. Isn't Elliptical a funny word? Elliptical, Elliptical! It was the most exercise I've done all year!
Fun lacy dresses, I highly recommend!!

Crazy heart on this Fairground Pony dress I had been saving especially for Christmas day. Pefect to throw on over bathers. Super sparky and fun, and I loves things that are sparkly and fun! I hope you all had super fun Christmas and Boxing days! I sure did and am still on the wines! Wooh!
So today I started my Christmas holidays!! Work was super cruisy today and I was out of there by 10.30 in the morning! Happiness consumes me! Super excited for summer time fun! And Christmas time, I have been getting crazy festive this year, making snow flakes to hang from the ceiling, watching an abundance of Christmas movies and going to look at neighbourhood Christmas lights. It's been wonderful!
I'm almost not sure what to do with my next 17 days off! So expect a lot of bloggety blog blogs from me. Especially since I got a nice fancy camera as an early Christmas present thanks to my Love.
These photos are taken by Mr Stompface, who fancies himself to be quite the camographer (his words).

I was lucky enough to get to shoot a few questions through to Shelley Craft about her latest project, the Hanger Nation . What a super cute lady she is!
If you haven't seen Hanger Nation yet, you should download it, its free! Free stuff is the best kind. It's super useful if you are as obsessed with fashion and online shopping as I am. I'm finding myself browsing through nearly every day, definitely a good time waster when you are supposed to be doing work!
Hanger Nation is basically a central point for many amazing Australian Designers, you can view their latest collections and even locate where to buy them where you live.
Check out the Q & A below:
What was the main inspiration that gave you this idea, and got you started on this project?
The idea came from the fact that I am a mad internet shopper and I was forever looking for a: my favourite designers estores and b: new Australian designers. The problem being that if you don’t know their exact address, precious shopping time is wasted!
You mention being ‘time poor’, how did you manage to put together this project with everything else on your plate? And was it hard to keep yourself motivated?
I am fairly time poor yes, I work for channel 9 on Australia’s Funniest Home Videos and THE BLOCK and I have a 16 month old daughter who is a true live wire and needs constant entertainment. I started working on HANGER NATION when I was pregnant, so I really had no idea what I was in for when Milla came along. Thankfully most of the ground work was done and now it is just a matter of making sure when new collections come in, they are uploaded straight away and of course I am always on the look out for new design talent
On compiling the list of designers for Hanger Nation, who were the first that sprang to mind that you knew you had to feature?
I wanted there to be a great mix of big names ie: WAYNE COOPER, LEONA EDMISTON, SAMANTHA WILLS, and of course some great smaller Australian Designers that I have fallen in love with: LISA BROWN, FRANCIS LEON, LUELA, SPELL.
Are there any up and coming or relatively unknown Australia Designers that you are a fan of?
Oh Yes, as a child of the 80’s I am loving the return of the jelly sandal. HOLSTER is an Australian shoe design company based in Noosa and they have the most fabulous range of summer sandal AND winter gumboot. All in the jelly style. Again, LISA BROWN is an absolute favourite of mine, I love her style and it certainly suits my lifestyle.
Can you recommend a few online shops that you visit the most or find the most reliable?
I shop a lot from ALL ABOUT THE DRESS which is site completely dedicated to special occasion/party dresses. I do get many of my FHV frocks from here.
Is there a designer or store that you can always rely on when you need to find an outfit for a special occasion?
It doesn’t matter the season or collection,
WAYNE COOPER will definitely have what you need, party, wedding, work, races – he is my never fail go to designer
Will Hanger Nation feature designers from other countries in the future?
I am a huge fan and supporter of Australian fashion. We have such a diverse sense of style and each of our Aussie designers really has cultivated a unique and individual look. I don’t believe the need to feature overseas designers on HANGER NATION – support Australian, buy Australian and be proud of our fabulous Australian designer talent.
Yes what you are witnessing right now is pretty much the greatest party dress in the history of all party dresses.
It is a VERY wonderful and VERY pink dress! It makes me want to roll myself down hills and jump up and down on the spot for 15 minutes whilst yelling things about dresses and pink things.
I wore this absolutely adorably adorable dress from Justyna G to my work Xmas party last night. What an amazingly wonderful creation she has created here, she is not a fashion designer she is a secret wizard because she clearly has magical powers. Secret wizards are the best kind.
Gosh I am feeling super super seedy but staring at photos of this dress is brightening my day, and should brighten yours too! It's fun to look at things that are pink and pretty! Weeeeeee
