Things I Love Thursday




Bows In Your Hair
There was a sale on in Best & Less (think target or wallmart) on little girls accessories and I stocked up on bows. Bows on headbands, bows on bobby pins, bows on clips, bows on hair ties…. Love.

Venetian Masks
I want to go to a masquerade ball and wear a fabulous gown and then Id have an excuse to buy a feathered, sequined, Venetian mask.

My New Ugg Boots
My mum just surprised me with these gorgeous new Ugg Boots. Her reason? My old ones were falling apart and errr smelled bad.

Before you go ‘ohmigod Addison, nooo please don’t be an advocate for them, I thought this blog was supposed to be about STYLE!’ don’t worry. Ugg boots WERE NOT made to be fashion items. Growing up in Australia, everyone wore ugg boots in winter, in place of slippers or socks.

And that is where they should remain. In winter, only to be worn INDOORS. Possibly to go check the mail. But never EVER outside in place of actual shoes. Why do people do this WHY!!!???

Long Leather Gloves
Does this even need an explanation?! Freakin HOT! I have teeny hands and can never fit into store bought gloves, which is frustrating. Most vintage gloves fit, as do children’s ones…. The hunt begins…

Discovering New Blogs
I adore finding new blogs that I absolutely love and thinking 'how did i ever live without this?!' One such blog is A New Muse that has posts on Sydney Street Style. Its a little funny because I live in the areas she's photographed and I actually know a few of the girls featured, which makes it exciting to me!! Ive added a few new links to the side of blogs that have been sweet enough to link me. So if you want your blog added, link me back and let me know and voila! (yes, shameful self promotion, but they are all awesome in their own ways so humph!)

What are some things you are loving lately?

I love bows too, did the inspiration for the masquerade ball come from Gossip Girl? :)
Currently I love my new bangles, rings, and nailpolish...

I like all these except for the Uggs! Things I like right now: random art, fun friends, and no drama!
I used to avoid sneakers because they made me feel stumpy too--at 5'1" I try to be careful not to shorten my legs, but for some reason these work!

I've been on the hunt for long leather gloves since last fall, no luck here either, the closest i found were long silk opera gloves, which are nice as well but i'm not sure where i'd wear them too.

Romany said...

Ooh this is all very Gossip Girl - love it.
That's so true about the Ugg Boots. Us Aussies can't help it, we grew up with them. But I don't even understand the point in wearing them outside the house. They don't do anything besides provide warmth, but then so do other shoes so just wear the others lol.
Ooh I wish someone would make a blog about Melbourne street style... :(

I love Gossip Girl style too. So nice to see someone so stylishly put together on screen again. I actually got as far as trying on the most perfect pair of soft kid leather, over the elbow gloves last weekend, but after a few other purchases, $300 was a not left over for that purchase. :(
Thanks for visiting my blog too; Come back any time. :)

I am loving so many things fashion wise it is difficult to even begin.

But I do like the fur on your Uggs, very pretty.

Oh and I'm v. into bows in hair at the moment tooo...

kate said...

I love bows as well, especially on headbands and ponytail holders. I found an awesome site, www.andreasbeau.com, which is a treasurebox of headbands, bows, ponies and more. Not only are these styles made of gorgeous materials I've seen nowhere else, but they are beautifully made and the headbands are extremely comfortable.
