BLUSH

 I'm wearing: Tee's By Alex tee, Lazy Oaf pinafore, Mollini boots, Gorman socks & Urban Outfitters sunglasses.

You know what they say about love, you might have already met your soul mate or whatever the fuck they go on about. One thing I can say though is that i’ve fallen madly in love with a pair of shoes.
It’s been a long and hard search to find the right fit and It feels so good to finally be able to stop searching.

RE: THOSE SEXY SILVER BOOTS I PICKED UP.

I hope y’all are close to finding the right fit for you xo

PICK ME UP AT 7!


Hey doods, The other day I found myself shopping in the kids section of a department store. This isn't the usual for me as I've got zero kids and none on the way. But regardless i'm losing my mind over bright primary colours at the moment WHICH is so out of the blue because I'm still so obsessed with pastels.

But anyway I picked up some of those really ugly school kids tee's they usually wear on sports days??? Threw on a bomber and bam I'm a walkin' New York taxi and I am so into it.

Yyyyyyou guys I can’t stop wearing these Lazy Oaf overalls I picked up in Sydney the other week.

Can we also talk about how these photos were taken a day after a crazy wild storm that shut down the Sunshine Coast. Who'd a thought!

anyway “happy what the fuck is it April already" day thinking about the fact that it's April and Splendour In The Grass tix go on sale next week. GIVES ME ANXIETY.

DIY SATIN SLIDES


I'm the type of person to wear slippers around the house all day, everyday. But if I decide to spontaneously go outside and weed the garden my slippers gotta keep up. So I'm all about this fur slide trend. I made these black fur slides last year and they're holding up so strong but I can't say no to baby pink, ever.  So I grabbed my trusty Araldite glue, spare fabric and some blank slides and off we went. I'm going to attempt to give ya'll the steps to make these below but long story short I just made a big long pillow type piece of fabric, glued it evenly to the side of the the slides, let it dry overnight and tied a knot.

But here goes ~ I even made a cute gif to try and help!

Step 1 ~ Find a pair of blank slides (mine are from Rubi Shoes), some super strong glue (I used Araldite) and a sewing machine and all the other bits like thread and scissors.
Step 2 ~ Cut 2 long pieces of fabric that you're going to fold and sew around the edges and turn inside out. My pieces were about 60cm long and 25cm wide.
Step 3 ~ Fold your fabric so the nice shiny side is facing in, sew around the edges leaving a lil hole so you can turn it inside out. I sewed rough curves at each edge of the fabric just so the bow would look cuter.
Step 4 ~ Once you've got 2 x satin pillow case lookin' rectangles of fabric, place them onto the slides evenly on the middle, peg them down and glue the fabric down tightly. Make sure you only do a thick strip of glue at the bottom of the shoe that'll be covered by the bottom of the knot. DO NOT PUT GLUE ALL OVER THE SLIDE. It doesn't dry clear and ruins the look!!!
Step 5 ~ Once you've got tidy little strips of glue holding down your fabric, leave your shoes to dry over night. Once your shoes are completely dry, have a play around and tie the perfect lil knot with all the excess fabric.
Step 6 ~ Ya done! you can even decorate your slides with confetti stars!

Happy Friday craft-a-noon!

TROPICANA 21ST


Yep ya read correct. I did just turn the big 21! 

For my 18th birthday I threw a tropical themed party and I don't think i'll ever completely remember that night but I do know it was the best time of my damn life. So for my 21st I did it allllllllll over again. Naturally I found the best tropical costume I have ever seen online, bought it and wore it with pride. I know what you're thinking it kinda looks like a big dick... but don't be fooled it's a sassy flamingo. 

I've only ever attended a very small amount of 21st parties in my life time and i've always known them to be all cute with slide shows and speeches. But no one ever told me how warm and fuzzy you feel when it's your own. Can’t even put into words how nice it is to look around your house and see all your faves having a boogy. So if you're one of the tropical punters who came and partied with me, thank you. 

p.s Shout out to Kritty B for moving half of the universe with that speech. Ya got me gooooooooooood & Shout out to Bridget for putting all that time n love into making the cutest lil book.  

Love Alex
