As you may have read in my previous post, I scored this sweet little Romance Was Born embellished vest at The Diva's Wardrobe on Sunday. In the spirit of sustainable fashion, for the afternoon of shopping I'd decided to sport my favourite family hand-me-down, this gorgeous bright red leather skirt which used to belong my Aunt. I'd paired it with my all time favourite Batman crop (an oldie but a goodie), and then when I tried on the denim vest it just looked like I'd been planning the purchase all along! It was the perfect addition to my outfit (and my wardrobe).

There's no denying shopping is my all-time favourite activity, and I love it even more when I can treat myself to super fab pieces without that omg-how-much-did-I-just-spend guilt. 
So my shopping outing to The Diva's Wardrobe today was a no-brainer!

The event held at RNA Showgrounds saw 26 Brisbane fashion-insiders aka "Divas" (including boutique owners, stylists, fashion agents, media personalities and shopaholics) selling never-been-worn and preloved favourites from their fabulous wardrobes including plenty of designer treasures!

I managed to find a few gems for myself including this gorgeous old-season Romance Was Born cropped vest which will be the perfect summer outerwear with its cut-out back. Continuing with the keeping cool theme, I picked out a super cute Topshop sheer black mini-dress which will be amazing for the beach and the hellishly hot Brisbane summer!

Beach Snaps

My beach dreams finally came true! With a high of 32 °C, and it being the final day of mid-semester break, Monday was the perfect day for some fun in the sun. 
Myself and a few friends headed to Kirra beach on the Goldcoast, the last stretch of sand before the coast of Queensland becomes the coast of New South Wales. 
It was the perfect spot - spacious, stunning, and still near enough to a 7-Eleven for a midday slurpee to cool down.

I've been totally obsessed over Kenzo's amazing eye print pieces since forever, and now that the trend has finally spread to slightly more affordable options, I just don't know what to pick!
I'm not sure why I didn't get in to Polyvore sooner (it's so fab!!!), but I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it out and share my eye-print edit with you.

Sneaky Purchases for the Beach

I know, I know, I've broken the golden rule of blogging. I seem to have taken a leave of absence. 
The past month has been the craziest month of uni I've had in a a long time, and it's been tough to find time to blog. All work and no play has left me longing for a break and dreaming of a day at the beach, and since it's finally mid semester break, I might just make it to the beach this weekend!

My Beach Edit:
Starburst choker by Isobel Badin
'Penny Wanderlust' neoprene bikini set and beach bag by Triangl Swimwear
Vagabond Dioon chunky sandals from Urban Outfitters
Graz x Ellery Quixote catseye sunglasses available from Eye Goodies
'Impressionist' bag  by Oliver

Despite how hectic this month has been, I may have managed to squeeze in a few sneaky procrasti-shopping sessions - oops! So my beach edit includes a few new treasures.

My first purchase was the amazing sports-luxe-esque neoprene bikini from Triangl Swimwear, pictured above. My obsession with neoprene is a long standing one, so when I discovered these gorgeous bikinis while scrolling through my instagram feed, I took the plunge and had finalised my purchases within a few minutes. They're super comfy and so reasonably priced too - $86 including bikini top, bikini bottoms, and a matching neoprene beach bag! I'm yet to take them for their first swim but i'll be sure to let you know how they hold up.

My second sneaky purchase was this bold perspex choker by Isobel Badin. I had a really hard time choosing between the four different 'Starburst Choker' styles, all designed for the Emma Mulholland MBFWA 13 show earlier this year, but I'm super happy with my choice (although I may invest in a second if I can save my pennies!). 

Summer is well and truly on its way, and I have no doubt the sneaky summery purchases will continue. Stay tuned!
