Running Hot & Cold

Today Mother Nature was A.D.D and couldn’t make up her mind on what season she wanted to put into play. Morning was slightly chilly with grey skies and moderate showers but by midday it was sunny and unbelievably humid. For days like this, layer, layer, layer off and layer on again. The sheer shirt was great in the humidity but when it got cooler; the vest was a lighter option in coverage (and is easier to carry round than a jumper or jacket). My clutch was a lucky find at my local hospice store, uber cheap too at only $1. Although it was plain at first, as soon as I got some studs ($2.40 worth), I quickly got into bedazzling it and is something I’m proud to rock round. Other than that it’s just another day in Auckland city, experiencing four seasons in one day.

Red, Red Wine

My Wine coloured cape-cardigan is one of my fav items of 2012, purchased from Valley Girl. Now Valley Girl is a store I don’t frequent at, as their sizes are limited to 14, which obliviously I am way beyond. But in desperation to find a birthday gift for a friend I wondered into the store only to leave with a gift for myself. The capes tag reads as a size small which on my 2-4XL body is mind boggling but it reminds me that you can’t always trust the tag. If anything these days with sizes varying from store to store, body shapes that fit and fill items in different ways, labels are merely suggestions. Something I had forgotten about but always good to remember! 
Quick tip- if that cute skirt doesn’t fit round your hips, bring it up to your waist and rock it as a high waisted skirt, you’ll find that you can shop in the straight size section and have much more choices available to you which is always a plus.
