A Day at the Roller Derby

As I mentioned on my previous post, I spent yesterday at the roller derby. It was a very long day, but a fun one. The Adelaide girls played against both Sydney and Brisbane - and we won both bouts! Huzzah for Adelaide! There were lots of stylin' ladies (and a few snazzy gentlemen, too) but everyone shall just have to take my word for it as I only snapped photos of myself before I left the house (and I'm not brave enough to ask others if I can take their photo).

Outfit details: hair scarf - mum; faux pearls - Hero vintage; cardigan - Cotton On; peasant-style top - op-shopped, Myer; bracelet - etsy; belt - The Way We Wear Fair; skirt - Salvo's; stockings - Love Kylie; shoes - KMart.

I mentioned the other day that I was feeling a little uninspired which seems to happen to quite a few of us and, as one comment mentioned, it’s totally understandable especially when you’re busy with something else like studying. But maybe you could all help me out a little – is there anything you’d like to see more of? Or maybe something you’d like to see that I haven’t done before? Any questions you’d like to ask me, etc.

  1. Great outfit, Andi!

    Sine you've got such great style, and not just in terms of clothing, but hair and makeup too, how about a makeup and/or hair tutorial? Or just some sort of "Here's what my routine is like" post. I don't know if it's just me, but I love to read about that sort of thing! I'm very nosy when it comes to people's beauty regimens and so forth! :p

  2. I think you always look great and I agree with Sam, a hair tutorial would be great!
    you also have a lovely smile and should show it more often!

  3. whoo, you look fantastic!
    ohh and i think sam's idea about a makeup or hair tutorial would be so good!

  4. You look great! Cute outfit, you put things together so well.
    I agree with the above comments, hair/makeup tutorial type things would be great...personally i wouldnt know where to start with the hair side of things :)


  5. A roller derby sounds groovy. As always, you look perfect! Ditto on the hair tutorial!

  6. Lovely outfit! I especially love the skirt!!

  7. (I know this isn't much help since you asked for tips on new things to try, but...) I think you always look like a million degrees of fabulous! Seriously, your style never ceases to amaze, impress and inspired me. Just keep doing what you're doing, honey, and I think you'll be on the right track.

    Big hugs,

  8. That is a perfect outfit for the roller derby! Sounds like a lot of fun. Love your skirt!

  9. What a wonderful outfit! Love the detail in the hose- you always get the details.

  10. Cute outfit!
    I want to learn to skate again, but not actually compete in roller derby – just train with them! Ha!
    I agree with the comments here – I'd love to see a hair tut, especially the fax bang with a rat.

  11. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

    Sam: Thanks so much, darling. And it's not just you - I love knowing that kind of thing, too. Hehe.
    Rosina: Thanks, doll! That means a lot. =]
    Phebe: Thanks, dear. =]
    Rose: Thanks so much! =D
    Land Girl: Roller derby sure is groovy! And thanks. =]
    Ms. B: Thank-you. I just adore that skirt!
    Jessica: Thanks, anyway, hun - that means a lot to me. =D
    Bug: Thanks! =] I initially felt a touch over-dressed but felt much better once I got there.
    Marie: Thanks. I'm glad you notice the details! =] Hehe.
    Esme: Thanks a bunch! =D Yes, skating is fun! I'm terrible at it but it's still fun. Haha.

  12. Great blog I like your style!
    It's nice to find more Aussie bloggers about the web :)

  13. Bucca: Thanks! =D And, yes, it sure is. =]

  14. As a fellow (now expat) Radelaidean, I'd love to know how you find having such a distinct style in a town that, let's face it, is not particularly stylish or tolerant of people who stand out from the crowd.

    Don't get me wrong - I'll always love Adelaide, but I know from personal experience that people who look a bit different can cop a lot of stick there!

    And I agree with everyone else - you always look amazing and I'm dead envious of your style!

  15. Kitty: That's a great question. I think I may have to dedicate a blog post to my answer. And thanks! =D
    Solanah: Thank-you =]


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
