Introducing myself
Hello, well I have landed in my new place (although this pic is not taken in it!) and I have been having blog commitment issues (should I? do I have time? Would anyone really care LOL!) I started writing, well, really for myself- (a bit of post break up, life transition musing and a bit of emotional catharsis, really). So here I am, not sure how much I'll post, but will give things a whirl and see where it goes.

So this is me- hello! Quick pic courtesy of my gal pal's hubbie, who was my dashing escort to my pal's burlesque festival (The very first Australian Burlesque Festival). I went to the Saturday night event, the Big Tease, and it was a very professional show with a mix of Australian and overseas acts. If you are in Sydney, the Big Tease is coming to you this Friday and Saturday night- check it out

So it was freezing (well freezing for Melbourne) and after a swag of outfits strewn over the bedroom floor I decided to keep it simple and go for this look (which I accidently - but secretly pleased, managed to colour coordinate with my escort's outfit!).

So I guess this is now an outfit post!
