Outfit Round-Up Part One

I had intended to do a style icon post, today, as promised last week but I realised that I'm behind on outfit posts and didn't want to leave it too much longer.

On Thursday I went to lunch with Ruby. I had not one, but two, cameras with me but didn't take one single photo when I was with her! But I did take a photo of my outfit for the day, of course:

Lunch Date Dress
Outfit details: earrings - Diva (remixed); faux pearls - North Adelaide Vintage & Fashion Fair (remixed); 1950s dress - Red Ruby Vintage; belt - gift (remixed); stockings - Love Kylie (remixed); shoes - Big W (remixed).

Lunch Date Dress
I don't often photograph the back of outfits, anymore, because I've got some, er, interesting characters commenting on my shots on flickr but just look at that collar! How could I not take a photo of it?

I went shopping for some yarn with my mum on Friday and wore the 1950s/60s sweater I bought at Irving Baby, after Ruby and I had had lunch.

Freddies, My Love
Outfit details: scarf - Salvos; earrings - gift (remixed); 1950s/60s sweater - Irving Baby; 1940s repro utility jeans - Freddies of Pinewood (remixed); socks - Best 'n' Less; shoes - Spend-Less.

And, seeing as I mentioned yarn, take a look at my first ever completed knitting project. I was going to do a whole post on knitting but I'm lazy and also rather excited/proud of myself and wanted to show it off as soon as possible.

First Completed Knitting Project

I found the pattern through Enken's blog, Whipstitch Sewing and had been meaning to make one up for a while but only just got around to it. It took me about three days to complete it but I obviously had a lot of breaks. I needed help in a few areas because I'm almost a complete beginner (unless knitting 'scarves' and 'blankets' for my teddy bears as a small child counts) but I'm still proud that I actually finished something! I plan on making a few more of these for winter. I'm probably just going to use cheap, acrylic yarn because I'm a bit reckless with scarves - I throw them around and shove them into bags, etc. so I don't want to spend too much money on them. But these are a lot more convenient than long scarves.

I have a second part of my outfit roundup coming because I thought four outfits in one post was a little bit much to tell the truth!

Love,
Andi B. Goode
