In my veins hot music ran

Oh gosh, it seems like my blogging has dropped to once a week (if I'm lucky!) - there are quite a few reasons why but I don't feel like going into them, right now, so here are a couple of outfit shots, instead.

Outfit details: dress - DearGoldenVintage;  top underneath - Target; belt - gift; stockings - Voodoo; shoes - Kmart; cardigan (pictured below) - etsy.

This is what I wore to see Cherry Poppin' Daddies on Monday night. I had a great time and danced, danced, danced and sung along when I could. We got a photo with Steve after the show and chatted with him and I spoke briefly to Dan on the way out - they were really friendly and I think it's great when bands have time to speak to their fans.

I really don't bring this adorable little cardigan out enough! But since taking it to Melbourne, I've been wearing it a bit more.

One of the things I love about these stockings (Voodoo Killer Legs 'Vintage' Stockings) is that they get the little wrinkles around the ankles you usually only get with fully-fashioned nylons.

As you can (hopefully!*) see I've had a haircut. I rather miss my long hair but it was getting to the point where the curl would just drop whenever I set it so I decided a drastic chop, rather than a trim, was in question. I like my short hair but I also like it long. But it'll grow and I can play around with other sets in the meantime!

Outfit details: beret - handknit my me; 1940s dress - Red Ruby Vintage; socks - We Love Colours; shoes - Payless.

And this is what I wore to uni, last night. I didn't set my hair so I just tucked the ends under using my straightener. 

I'll leave you with a video I uploaded a little while ago (but filmed last November) of me singing/playing uke. It's not a vintage song but, hey, we all need a little variety! (Cover of Say Hi's Sweet Sweet Heartkiller). Thank-you, YouTube, for the ever-so-attractive screengrab...

(Speaking of music, fans of '60s girl groups should check this link out!)

*I say this because people rarely notice when I get a haircut, these days.

  1. Adore that checked dress in the first picture, stunning and it looks so comfortable. Like your new hair too, mine is getting stupidly long, but then it grows at a ridiculous speed, so I'm trying to embrace the long lenghths as a hair cut this time of the year would be a waste of money ;)

  7. Those stockings are really great aren't they. They're the best NEW stockings that look the most like vintage ones.

    I had the black colour-way too but I didn't like those so much cos the bunching looked terrible. Much better in the tan.

    This winter though, I'm committing to wearing more actual vintage nylons. I scored 8 pairs for $80 off ebay recently which was a MAJOR bargain and I'm determined to get used to their non-stretchiness. They are just so damn classy. Seams all the way I say!!

  10. Everything is just so pretty :) I really love the leaves on the cardigan, I'm a sucker for beadwork on sweaters! I admire your style so much!

    I thought your hair looked shorter! I dig it!

    And you sound great singing! The ukelele is such a pleasant sounding instrument :)

  12. How cute are you???
    Your uke playing gave me an inspiration...my Dad has a ukelele that he never ever plays and I'm going to "borrow" (read: steal) it from him and learn to play!

  16. Cute outfit! The cardigan is just lovely, and I love the effect on the stockings =)
    The new haircut looks great! I've been working up to cutting it that short, I've only ever had long hair, what I'm sporting now is the shortest I've ever had... A little at the time! =)
