Merry Christmas, Love from Daywalker :)

This is what some members of my family will receive this year. I think handmade gifts are the best really. I took this picture a few days ago and have since had it printed and framed. Also, I'm not exactly flush with cash.
To my dear readers ( all 3 of you!) , Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays or whatever you're celebrating, stay safe, happy and healthy xoxoxoxoxo

Gladiator............ NO!

I refuse to cave in to the trend of the gladiator. I think these sandals kick ass, especially the zip detailing. They're not overdone and in my eyes are perfect. Plus they work well with skinny jeans which is kind of my wardrobe staple/uniform. Go sandals!!
Zip Sandals - Rubi Shoes

Good Service........ what a rarity!!

Well, I've been pleasantly surprised. I actually got great customer service today which almost NEVER happens. And, this was in Big W buying nail polish. As i was standing there deliberating over two colours, the sales assistant approached, helped me out and even gave me a bonus make-up pouch that was supposed to be for another promotion. I thanked her profusely for doing her job. This was unbelievable since I'm constantly complaining about complete absence of customer service and because only 5 minutes earlier I was in Hairhouse Warehouse where 4 employees ignored me. I didn't ask for their help because I thought they should approach me and why should I spend my money there when I could go elsewhere and not have to almost beg for some assistance.

Anyhoo, the sun is shining and it's summer :)

What I would accept for Xmas.............

Following on from a previous post on what I don't want for Xmas.
How cute is this fashion origami!! It's from Fred Flare, only $12 and would be a perfect Kris Kringle gift.

What I don't want for Xmas......

I got tagged by Valentine. I suppose what i'm not looking forward to is the obligatory gift buying, or receiving obligatory gifts - like a pyjama set that looks cute but is 3 size too big when you open it. Makes you wonder why they even bothered in the first place. That's about it really - no insincere gifts - I would rather receive nothing :)

Xmas Presents :)

I purchased this for myself at Genki today on behalf of my man - Thanks Babe :)

The intention was to buy a couple of presents for people - not myself - I always do this!!!

Anyhoo, It's by Tatty Devine and I love pretty much everything they make.

I had quite an amusing trip on my way home. Some teenagers on the train were talking about bleaching their pubes !@#!@? I love public transport.

These were the 80's leggings I spoke of in the last post. I'm glad it's out of focus - What a poser!!
The top was actually cashmere Pringle which came from an op-shop in Hawthorn and I vaguely recall cutting it up a few years later. The shoes were from Succhi - man I wish that store still existed :/

Wet Look Leggings............... I don't know.....

They are not red as your monitor may show, but a rusty, russet colour.
I really don't know!!! I kinda feel like Robin Hood in tights. It's funny though because I've lived through 3 waves of leggings - the 80's - I have a great picture of me posing and wearing black wetlook leggings, the early 90's - I remember wearing two very colourful Esprit pairs that belonged to my sister one with a sunflower print and some blue/green ones which I would wear with black or dark red clogs - what a comfortable outfit!! (I've got to find some pictorial evidence) and now - but i'm not finding the transition as easy. As you can see i'm wearing two different shoes - the sandal i'm happy with, but the boot - very unsure. I purchased the boots months ago and still haven't worn them because I'm not really into the white part around the sole - I could colour it with a marker. Anyway, you can't really see the boots, so i'll save that rant for another post :)

Leggings - op shop
