I know, I need a fringe trim, right? But really, I'm enjoying the wall I've created around myself, and being able to screen myself out, so maybe I won't. My skirt probably also needs an iron too, but really, I like it better now all crinkly than when it was all smooth and freshly ironed.

There's been so much spending temptation this weekend - online and off. We went to the Zambesi Scramble (a sample sale they were holding). If you guys haven't heard of Zambesi before, one of our previous posts at their A/W2011 would be a good taster of what they're about. They're actually one of our favourite New Zealand labels - just, we usually can't afford it. You should have seen us, going through these sales racks so thoroughly! You'll see the pieces here soon. But for now, a clue about the pieces we scored: mega 90's.

Finally get to share with you another version of chokers i've been making. I just fell in love with a certain little piece of Garnet, the hint of dark red that it glows, but otherwise it almost looks black. Here's a thought - would any of you be interested in a giveaway... say, with one of my chokers as the prize? It's been a while since we've done one here. And we're feeling festive, a lil' christmas-y. Just running it past ya. Let us know what you think.

I fully enjoy your outfit wrinkles, fringe, and all. I love how the simplicity of your outfit really pops which makes it a contradiction. Like a screaming mime. The color of your skirt is darling and I have to find something in the shade.

Love the colour palette and the subtle contrast of texture on your top! Great outfit.
