A fashionista I am NOT, but something happens to me when I spend time with Mrs Woog and Nikki (we are currently up at the Problogger Conference on the Gold Coast). Mrs W makes me try things on that I would normally NEVER do, and then makes me buy them, and then Nikki workshops with me why said pieces are essential to my wardrobe, and LIFE and accessorizes the shit out of them. This happened to me yesterday when we were waiting to board our flight at Terminal 3 in Sydney.
There I was, minding my business, when I walked into Witchery and Mrs Woog started throwing items at me. She handed me a SEQUINNED TOP. A SLEEVELESS SEQUINNED TOP. I don’t DO sleeveless, namely because of my tuck shop arms…however I had a cheeky spray tan that made me feel like I was 5 kilos lighter than I actually am, so I took the top and I tried it on. I then GASPED, actually gasped out loud which made Mrs W rip back that change room curtain and gasp to.
It was the perfect top. Not too long. Not too short. Just right. Not too tight, or flowy. Just right.
Have you ever tried on a top that just works? For whatever reasons, the retail stars align and the fit, length, neckline all work to create the PERFECT TOP. That’s what this is. I know it’s just the spray tan talking, and the sequins have clearly gone to my brain being on the Gold Coast and all, but it may just be a magical top.
The sequins are heavy so it hides my guts. The neckline was scooped just so to give a wee bit of cleavage, but not too much. The length is PERFECTION. People, I am loving myself sick in this top, and I’m not afraid to tell you so. I can team this bad boy with a blazer, jeans, black pants, my NYC black shorty shorts. possibilities? Endless I tell you!
Nikki made me pose like a loser. I FELT LIKE A LOSER and I most certainly look like one. But you had to get the whole picture. See how I am trying to work it? Yes, I had drunk a little.
They are brand spanking new from Witchery. In fact, I couldn’t even find them online yet because they only hit the stores yesterday, but for $80 I think, it’s a game changer. A FANCY GOLDILOCKS PERFECT GAME CHANGER. I also bought two other tops, that were fab, but they may get their own posts. In fact, as well as being a craft blogger, I am clearly officially a FASHION blogger to. Uh HUH.
Do you partake in airport shopping?
I think it’s because you are in transit that you just don’t think it counts you know? I mean if you don’t take a bag and just whack it into your handbag to say on carry on luggage, it doesn’t actually count as a purchase right?
What’s the last thing you bought at an airport? No mints don’t count.
