Fashion rut

Hi all,

It’s been a while since I blogged. I have been having a fashion rut. Especially being a new mum – I find it easier to throw on a sweater and jeans and head out the door.

This is a go to look for me:

So I have been scouring H&M for some inspiration:

 

Been loving florals as its getting warmer and I really want a leather jacket. Loving this bag from H&M too – looks more expensive than it actually is.

Where have you guys been shopping lately? What trends are you loving?

New bag and Healesville Sanctuary

Hi all,

Over the weekend my bf bought me a new handbag because the one I bought from Indonesia broke on me only after using it for 1 month! Heartbroken!

Mocha bag

It’s such a cute navy satchel bag that can be used as a side bag and also carried by the handle.

We went to a place called Healesville Sanctuary – there are all Australian wildlife there and we got to see kangaroos, koalas, platypus, dingo, wombats.

How did you spend your weekend? Any new purchases for the week?

DIY T-shirt to Bag

After I saw Sewpetitegal create this DIY T-shirt to bag I knew I had to try it out 🙂 She did hers with a long sleeve top but I created mine with a normal t-shirt top.
I don’t have pictures of what my t-shirt looked like originally *hehe I forgot to take pics*
But this is what it looked like after 🙂

Basically the steps in making it was:
Cut across the sleeves of the t-shirt so you have a rectangular shape – you can decide how big or small you want the bag to be but I just cut straight across and made that the size of my bag.

You will also need to cut a smaller rectangular shape for the bottom of your bag. So make sure you have some material left over to do this.

Using the sleeves of the Tshirt I used this to make the handles of my bag.

Now its time to start sewing. Sew the smaller rectangular to the bottom of your bag. *Make sure to fold it inside out first so the seam is on the inside.*
Sew the handles to the tops of your bag. *I find that if your handles are too long you can always knot the bag to make it shorter*

Bonus feature: Add two strips to the front of the bag – for a belt to go through and then you can tie a ribbon around it. You might want to add one more strip at the back of the bag for more stability and voila 🙂 Your tshirt bag is done.

I recommend giving this a go 🙂 I’m not a very good sew-er but I managed to do this! You can turn a t-shirt that you don’t wear much anymore into a much loved bag!

Shopping at 8am?

Today was an eventful day because I got to visit one of our regional offices and go into court. It was very interesting to see how the court system works.

I also managed to do some quick shopping because some shops were opened at 8. I saw this cute bag on display in witchery and these wedge shoes. I couldn’t try them because that shop only opened at 9.

                           

But I did pick up these cute black boots on sale for $8. They will be perfect for colder days. I also got this white shirt for $5. I like the sleeves and the front pockets and last of all I couldn’t resist and picked up this Rimmel wine colored nail polish which is perfect for fall or Winter.

  

OOTD: Black blazer, floral skirt (that used to be longer but I shortened it) and floral top. I love this bag that I bought from HK night markets. I use it a lot as its soo roomy inside and has this tag that is great for travel ticket – just swipe on and off.

 

What’s in your bag?

I have seen a lot of “what’s in your bag” blog entries and decided to do my own. I don’t know why I’m fascinated at what are in people’s bags or purses but I guess it gives you little ideas here and there about what other people bring and what products do other people use.

So this is what I bring in my work bag:
1. My pass – to get into the work building

2. Keys – looks like a whole heap and I probably don’t use them all!

3. Lesportsac makeup bag

4. Loreal matte morphose

5. Chapsticks – Burts bees and lipsmackers

6. Umbrella – still a little rainy season here even though its spring 🙂

7. Anna Sui wallet (bought from HK)

8. Notebook and pen – from Typo (great for jotting down any ideas)

9. Sportsgirl best dressed palette

10. Sunglasses – from Temp

11. Mobile phone – E63 Nokia and headphones

Most days I will bring my lunch to work and usually eat out on Fridays 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!
