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.

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  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

  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,

  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.

  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!
