At the Avalon

For years now, I've driven past this abandoned art deco theater on the way to class. It's a beautiful old building and it's a shame to see it boarded up when it has so much potential! I rarely go to the movies, but if cinemas were still like they used to be, I would probably go every weekend. The Avalon was built in 1921 and movies were screened there until the late 1940s. Today the building belongs to the university I attend, and is sadly unused. Unfortunately I don't have a wide angle lens so I couldn't get any full shots of the theater, but there are a few photos of the whole building on my instagram!

While red is always my go-to lip colour, I felt like being a bit adventurous and decided to give dark wine coloured lips a go. I'm a bit unused to the colour on me, but I do like it and I felt that it went nicely with this new Hellbunny dress. I am always excited when Hell Bunny releases a new collection and I really loved their last one a few months ago that had a few great 30s and 40s inspired looks!

Dress - Retrospec'd - via Pinup Empire Clothing
Shoes - Novo
Sunglasses - Juicy Couture
Just a few photos from this past fortnight! There have been bowls of coffee consumed and many essays written, but when I have had a chance for a quick break I've enjoyed getting away from textbooks and the computer by going for walks. When I'm stressed I find walking away from it all and spending time outdoors among nature always helps to soothe me. I've also just started a job that's relevant to my Masters degree and I'm actually very happy with how everything is going at the moment, I only wish there were more hours in a day!

My outlet - and my vice, online shopping, has led me to using a sort of rewards system when it comes to writing essays and I've been...treating myself. Many of these purchases have been by Australian reproduction designers because with the weak Australian dollar it is not possible to justify buying anything from the US - not that I am at all languishing, in fact I am proud to add home grown brands to my wardrobe such as Retrospec'd. So while I will always love the wonderful US and UK brands I have in my wardrobe, it is good to be supporting Australian designers which I hope to blog about soon!

Trashy Diva Sandy Dress in Pearl Harbour

Dress - Trashy Diva
Shoes - Novo
I love dresses that cause me to constantly want to twirl around, and this would have to be one of my favorite ones to twirl around in! Classes went back last week and things are a pretty full on at the moment so I will be keeping blog posts short and sweet, mostly blogging outfits that I have worn to class during the week and this is one of them. This early on in the semester it's still manageable to dress up for classes, but we'll see if this is still the case in a few weeks from now!

Mini Dorothy Dress!

Dress - Trashy Diva
Shoes - Forever New
Sunglasses - Wildfox

I admit - I was tempted to wear this dress with red shoes, but I resisted, tempting as it was! As of the beginning of this month it's apparently autumn - but it certainly doesn't feel like it at all. Which is fine really, because I still have many summer outfits to blog!
