OUTFIT UPDATE: mint meets purple






So, a while ago I was at the local shopping centre rushing around like crazy, trying to find something to wear to a friends birthday party that night. I seem to be in the habit of leaving outfit choices to the very last minute, and then when it comes time to get ready I feel I have nothing to wear! It's times like these I am thankful for the 'El Cheapo' chain stores that plague the suburbs I grew up in. Example, on this occasion I made a pitstop at Cotton On to pick up a basic tee, and was pleasantly surprised to find this sheer flowing maxi skirt crammed amongst some other pretty average looking garments, at the very back of the store. $20 dollars later I was out the door with a new, versatile (albeit poor quality) piece that can be easily dressed up or down. I often pair it with chunky statement platforms and a bright top at night time or flat sandals and a casual singlet during the day. I love that it adds an instant feminine look to whatever I'm wearing. 

Simple message here, you absolutely do not need to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks! And sure, the crappy quality may well cut short the life of this garment, but by then I have no doubt I will have moved on to big and better obsessions. 

Maxi - Cotton On
Bracelets - Colette and Tiffany & Co.
Shoes - Steve Madden
