The fantastic thing about floral designs is that it entitles you to accessorise and layer up in all sorts of beautiful brights creating a delightful overall colour palette reminiscent of a flower bouquet. I only added subtle pops of colour in this outfit with lavender nails and the bits of purple, red and green on my bustier top, but I really wanted to showcase the gorgeous sea foam green of my new heels :)
I'll be posting up a review of these shoes plus some other heels I ordered recently from Wholesale7.net, very shortly so stay tuned! Spoiler alert- they all turned out awesome, and 5/5 ratings ensued :D I have a bracelet from Disney Couture (pictured) which I always find so hard to colour-coordinate with, and it's a dream to finally pair it up with something I can always wear, such as these heels.
This is pretty much the same outfit I wore for my 2011/2012 new year's. A quiet celebration at a friend's house, watching an intense game of kids playing the quintessentially Aussie cricket on the grass (five year old sure can pitch), and indulging in the most scrumptious, perfectly cooked soft beef, spinach and cheese gozleme by the water calls for a laidback, casual but fun and bright outfit to suit the warm Australian sun we're basking under. My idea of a party becomes more and more mundane as I age and morph closer and closer into my inevitable fate as an old lady who loves cats too much, but I'm perfectly content with that. Anyone else with me?

I also wanted to thank everyone who wished me well in my previous, previous post- thank you very much! I've been sick and extremely sleep-deprived the past couple of weeks, but I'm pretty much fully recovered now. I haven't had much of an appetite lately either, but the other day I discovered the most fantastic appetite-opener! I was at a restaurant with my family and family friends and was barely touching anything except vegetable soup because the food was making me feel nauseous. Then I decided to dip a dumpling into the chilli sauce, and GOOD LORD my monstrous appetite had become awakened and my eyes almost popped out of my head in sheer delight! Needless to say, I spent the rest of the evening dipping everything generously in that chilli sauce and attempting to eat my whole two weeks back. I'm really not clear on the health benefits of chilli when you're sick, but as for your appetite, it will do wonders. I can't wait to go out to yum cha again. So hungry right now.
As for my last post (here), a number of people were asking me where I got the jewellery stand from. In case anyone didn't seen my reply- I did ask my mum, and she said she got it from a friend, who was able to get it directly from the warehouse. I don't know where else it's being sold, but I assume a lot of homewares stores should have similar things. The similar one I saw in the catalogue which I was about to purchase myself, was from Aldi but I'm not sure if it's still there. I think it was on sale for about $100!
And one more thing! I just started posting and following people on my Twitter account. Mine is here: https://twitter.com/#!/_izzi I look forward to checking out all your tweets :) although like every social network I venture into for the first time I bet I'll embarrass myself with my noobness...
