National Dog Day

 Sweater // Peter Alexander
Skirt // Dangerfield
Shirt // Dangerfield
Shoes // Taobao

I'm a little bit late, but the 26th of August was National Dog Day! I'll be honest, every day of my life is dog day because dogs are great and I appreciate the heck out of them every day by looking at pictures of dogs in costumes, wearing dog themed clothing, patting my own dogs (Perdy is pictured, Pepper can't stay still enough for photos), and just generally thinking they're neat. I also can't believe I've never posted an outfit with this sweater before, I wear it so often that it's anyones guess how it hasn't disintegrated straight off my back yet! Corgis are great. Sweaters are great. Corgi sweaters are the greatest. 

Oh and I'm a brunette now, surprise!

Don't be such a crepe!

When I decide that I want to eat a particular kind of food, I'm essentially useless until I've got my hands on whatever it is I want. It pretty much consumes my entire being and I can't think about anything else. Tonight I decided that I wanted a strawberry crepe more than anything else in the world, and so Sam and I took a trip to Mothers Crepe + Chatime on Grote Street in the city.

I had Mothers Crepe on our trip to Sydney in 2013 and I kind of just forgot about it until today, when I remembered that there was a store in Adelaide and I didn't have to lead a sad, crepe-less existence. What's amazing about Japanese style crepes is that they often contain things that you probably wouldn't expect to be rolled up in a fluffy, delicious cone - like whole brownies or slices of cheesecake - and that's what makes them so bloody wonderful. I had the Caramel Strawberry Cheesecake Soft Ice Cream Special (try saying that three times fast), Sam had the Choco Banana Special, and we washed them down with a chocolate milk tea with sago bubbles from the Chatime side of the store. The crepes were a wallet-friendly price of only $6.50, and we were absolutely stuffed afterwards. 

In short, it was a quick delicious meal that didn't break the bank, which is all I really want when I go out to eat. tI think it's safe to say that my sweet tooth is satiated for at least another week, but I can't promise anything!

Dress // Princess Highway
Cardigan // ModCloth
Belt // Forever New

This is going to be my last post as a purple haired magical girl, because tomorrow I'm going for a big change! I'm a bit scared because I've been purple for nearly two years, so I'm sure looking in the mirror and seeing something different is going to be a pretty big shock, but I'm excited to not stain everything I put my head on anymore. I'm also hoping one day Dangerfield is going to notice how many of my outfits feature their pieces and they'll ask me to be a model for them. Not likely, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Avcon 2014

Last weekend Sam and I spent our Sunday afternoon at Adelaide's local anime & video game convention, Avcon. It was the first time either of us had gone, and even though I was very sick (I've been basically housebound with a virus for the past two weeks) I had a really good time! I spent a couple of weeks beforehand sewing my first ever handmade cosplay (with a lot of help from my mum and my wonderful friend Lily), and if you're not familiar with your anime characters I was Asuka Langley Soryu/Shikinami from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I didn't take any photos while we were at the convention because my eyepatch meant I had very limited eyesight, and I was focusing a lot of my energy on just remaining upright, but there were some really amazing cosplay efforts, especially in the cosplay competition! It really inspired me to work on improving my sewing skills and possibly competing next year. I'm excited to start working on my costumes for Adelaide Supanova, which is coming up in November, as well as one for Avcon 2015.

I didn't get to buy much because like I said, I was mostly concentrating on not passing out, but I did pick up these adorable Adventure Time themed brooches from Australian brand, We're All Mad Here. Brooches are my latest obsession, I want one to go with every outfit!

pastel dresses from ModCloth

It's shaping up to be a particularly dreary winter down here in the south, so I've been trying to counteract the effects of grey skies and rainy days by browsing for cheery, candy coloured clothes! These are some of my favourite picks from ModCloth, I hope you like them too!
