As I said in my last post, I went to the Sam Roberts Band show in Victoria last Saturday. I've loved their music for ages, so it was wonderful to see them live! The following two (pretty crap) photos I took with my phone whilst the show was going on. They played a fantastic variety of their music, old songs and new. Overall, it was an amazing show and I'm so glad I went!
And here's a quick, recent web cam photo of myself. I feel like I need to do something with my hair lately, but I'm not sure what...
I'll try to get on with posting more often, but I can't promise anything at the moment. Hope you're all well.

Last night I went to the Sam Roberts show in Victoria. It was amazing, they put on an incredible live show! I'll post a bit more about it later on.

In this outfit: Granny's earrings, scarf borrowed from Mum, second hand gold jumper, second hand black cardigan, second hand high waist shorts, owl ring, Secret black tights, Fioni black boots
This is what I wore a handful of days ago. I love this sparkly gold jumper, it's one of my favourite finds for this autumn. It's cosy and can be worn with so many things. I don't usually go with yellows hues and such, but this is such a neat jumper I didn't mind that it was a colour I don't normally wear!

Second-hand shirt / Seductions knitted skirt / Secret raspberry red tights / Forever 21 pumps
This is what I wore yesterday. I love outfits like this for autumn and winter, they're simple and comfortable, but can still be made stylish. I know I keep rattling on about the weather, but honestly, I would miss our cold seasons so much if I lived some place where it stayed mostly warm all year round. By mid-August, I'm usually starting to get restless for some cooler weather, rainy days, and the chance to start wearing some different clothes, and not just the same old same old I've been wearing all summer. It'd drive me nuts if it was still warm here in October!
P.S. I've decided to start using slightly larger photos.
This is what I wore on Friday. I love autumn for a lot of different reasons. Chilly weather, autumn fashion, Halloween, I could go on. If only the West coast had more trees that had leaves that turn beautiful colours like in the East. There's an awful lot of green here all year round, not that green isn't nice!
I don't normally wear scarves, but for this outfit, however, I decided a scarf was definitely needed. And not just for fashion purposes, but because it's bloody cold! I wore my huge oversized cardigan with sparkly silver knitted through it, and paired that with the simple black scarf I borrowed from Mum.
Scarf: Borrowed from Mum
Grey top: Stitches
Black cardigan: Thrift Shop
High Waist Shorts: Thrift Shop
Camera Ring: Aldo
Black Tights: Secret
Black Pumps: Forever 21
Hope you're all having a good Sunday.

It's gotten so cold here in the past week or so. I don't know if it's this cold in October normally, and I just can't recall it, or if it's unusually chilly. Either way, the bottom line is it's cold, and I love it. We're supposedly going to have a colder and snowier winter than what's normal, which I would like very much, but the weather here is so unpredictable who knows if that will turn out to be true!
This is the outfit I wore Thursday. I decided to dress up a bit more than usual, just for fun. My old grey blazer, black jumper, black high waist shorts, black tights, and my favourite black pumps. I about froze taking those last couple of photos with my blazer off!
I don't usually like tops with high necks, but I really like this one because it's not an overly high neck. It's just right, I think.
Hope you're all doing well.

Second hand dress shirt, blazer, and pumps, and Shank jeans I've had since I was fourteen.
I need to figure out some new places to take photos, I've officially gotten tired of the same old spots I always use. I'll keep using them sometimes, but I need to find some other places, maybe outside... but I'll need to dress a bit warmer in order to do that! Maybe I'll re-arrange the things on my wall for a different look.
I bought these pumps for $8 at the Salvation Army. They've got to be one of my best finds to date, love 'em!
And don't mind the mess on my dresser! I'm in the midst of tidying up and sorting through things.
I think I'm going through a bit of a flux period with my style. I can never decide what to wear or what sort of style I like best. On one hand, I love very ladylike, classic outfits and on the other hand I'm very inspired by Paloma Faith's eccentric style! I think I just need to figure out a way to combine the two.
The title of this post is part of one of my favourite quotes from Oscar Wilde, "You can never be overdressed or overeducated".

I went to Munro's and bought these. The first Harry Potter book (I watched the first film for the first time a few weekends ago and have gotten pulled in!), British Glamour, and Harperland by Lawrence Martin, and the first Harry Potter book.
A fantasy novel, fashion/lifestyle magazine, and a book about politics... whatever you say, you can’t say I’m a girl of limited interests.
I feel a bit spoilt since I'm always hunting about second hand shops and hardly ever buy actual new things!
A few new pairs of tights from The Bay. Mum hates sheers, "they look too dressy!", but I need options other than brights and blacks tights, and since bare legs are not one at this time of the year, these are the next best thing.
Two lacy tops from Costa Blanca on sale for $7 each, they're tight and will be perfect for wearing under cardigans and what not! Love love love them.
Two tops from Sirens for $7 each, they're perfect for under lacey shirts and leotards and things.
Two lace bralets from Sirens for $7 each (it was $7 day, obvs), and they're so pretty.
These two gorgeous jumpers (I hate the word 'sweater' soz) from Sirens. I'd love to wear the red one as a dress, but I think it's a wee bit too short, unfortunately. :(
These two pretty sparkly tops from Sirens.
Two new skirts from Sirens. I've been looking for a nice plain one like the one on the left for ages, it's a little big in the waist, but I can take it in a bit easily. The one on the right is a cable knit skirt, I love it since it's a bit different from what I usually wear.
My babe. Sirens only had extra small and medium and the medium was too big, so it's tiny bit small, but I loooove it.
And this lovely, grey dufflecoat from Sirens for $20. It reminded me of a beautiful coat I'd seen a lovely man wearing a while ago, and it's awful cosy and nice for so cheap.
That's that, and no more shopping for me for a while. I need to start saving more money like I'd been doing, instead of spending it on things instead!
