oxford st (and my new found love for kmart?)

I'm not gonna lie, I really don't get out much. But that is completely by choice. I can be a bit of a hermit and much prefer the comfort of my chair and the internet-world at my fingertips than the constant pounding of music or even the outdoors. This year, I made a bit of a resolution to make more of an effort to see friends (especially since I hadn't seen them in a year whilst I was in the UK), Sydney (my beloved hometown) and what lies beyond my bedroom door -- and a lot more often. Fortunately, I can say that's pretty much the only resolution I've stuck to so far and arguably the most important!

Because I've got so much to buy these days, what with trying to convert my room into something more two-person-friendly, I'm seriously lacking in funds. This explains my constant search for a Primark-like store here in Australia and I think I've found it, albeit a much crappier version: Kmart. I'm not even joking.

Denim Top: Kmart
Chiffon Maxi Skirt: Also Kmart
Black faux fur coat: Attik
Ankle boots (Allegra knock-offs, I think?): Ebay
Jewellery: White cross ring, Diva; Onyx rose and melanite gem rings, Pandora; silver cross chain necklace, Sportsgirl

Also due to my lack of disposable money, I planned to catch up with my old friend, Lori, by just having some food at her place while watching a DVD and chatting. When she came to pick me up, though, she decided I was much too dressed up for a cosy night in and so, naturally, she took me out. Haha!

Lori being fierce. I didn't ask her where she got everything from, though, sorry!

So, what I thought the night would consist of (web-browsing, chatting, crystal healing, eating):

A note on the first photo: hah! my hair just blends into my coat and I look like an internet-browsing sasquatch. I kind of find this awesome.
A note on the last photo: I've decided to close my food blog, Feast Fancies, and just make it a Friday feature on this 'ere blog! So expect to see at least one picture of delectable edibles every Friday from this point forward!

What it actually consisted of (hopping into her car and driving to Oxford St with a couple of her friends for a short clubbing experience - I had a curfew tonight!):

So! Here I am, writing this blog post at 3.30am because I've royally messed up my sleeping pattern for good, I think. I really have to stop sleeping in... uh!

Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. I'm also quite the little hermit, the cosy couch is always a better option for me! It sounds like you had a good night out all the same though, sometimes the spontaneous ones turn out to be the best :) xx

  2. Lovely post, beautiful photos and cute outfit! I love your blog!

  4. I can be like that as well sometimes. It's nice to just stay in and be cozy. But going out sometimes is really fun as well! I'm loving that outfit, especially that top!

  5. Hey hey, a bargain is always a bargain ;)

  9. I swear the same thing happens to me, haha. You find the most strangely awesome things at the most random stores sometimes. Either way, love the outfit!

  10. Great style dear.
    Especially love the first outfit!

  11. Did i ever tell you i LOVE your hair? I love it short. I want to cut my hair like that but i just don't suit short hair :( You look lovely as ever, Michelle! Hope you are well xxxx

  12. I've found it so hard to get to sleep these past few weeks, since leaving uni I don't have much to do inbetween working at the weekends. I need to sort my pattern out also!

    That's a great denim top, my friend recently bought a black mazi skirt.. or it was a midi - one of the two! I'll have to reccomend denim to go with it to her, she was wondering for ages what would go.

    Ace tee your friend has on too!

  13. Great post, amazing red lips!

  14. Wow, k mart do some really nice pieces!
