White Bird

Every now and then, I enter a styling competition in the hope that I win some fabulous prize. The problem that always crops up however, is that these competitions are more often than not based on the other side of the world. They are named such things as "Winter Whites", "Fur and Gold" and "Snowman". Okay so the second one is actually the name of Bat For Lashes' album and the last I just plain made up, but you see what I'm getting at. So, today I sweated my arse off in the Australian summer heat in order to take a couple of photos for the "Winter Whites" competition. It's not as rugged up as one might have hoped for, but it was all I could handle.

From March, they might have more luck with me as I'll be in the Eu of rope. Watch out snowmen.


Collared Blouse: Bought on a recent op shop raid for $1
Cropped jumper: A trade with my friend Marissa for letting her sell things at our monthly Vintage & Retro Market. I called it commission but really, it was pretty much stealing... with permission.
Belt: Taken from a dress that came out of another of my recent op shop finds.
Dress: Borrowed from a lovely friend.

I know how you feel. We don't get a lot of snow over here either. ANY would be more accurate. You're lucky to be able to go to Europe though. I haven't gone since I was 6. And with the way things are looking over here, I doubt I'll go again any time soon. Have fun. And you take some really nice pictures :)

Thank you. Alas, it's my boyfriend Bobby who's the photographer.
