It has been footy finals fever in Melbourne. All of the experts, myself included, come out of the woodwork. I went to a grand final party at a friend's flat in St. Kilda.
The weather was very Melbourne. The usually calm beaches on Port Philip Bay looked like surf beaches. At this time of the year, Melbs can only do glorious days occasionally.
I had hoped that Freo would win, as I love an underdog, but watching their kicking was rather frustrating.... in the end, the Hawks outplayed them.
And that is as much as I have to say about the footy.
On Friday, I went to the shopping centre to check out what is in fashion. I was prepared to splash some cash. The squally weather notwithstanding, I need to summerify my wardrobe.
I also need to inject a bit of colour - going through my wardrobe, there is a lot of black.
I have come to the conclusion that the shops, especially some of the bigger chains (you, Witchery) do not want my money.
There is lots of stuff for the petites (6-10) and a growing collection for 16 and above (this is great), but all of the in-between 12 to 14 styles run out the door, and I come a bit late to the party. I see lots of stuff I love, but my size has run out. Wahhhh.WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY MONEY, RETAILERS?
One sure way to put me in a bad mood is to take me jeans shopping. I often fly into a rage and sulk. Often my size is sold out. I am not comfortable getting a pair online, because I am scared they won't look right.
What I want at the moment is a pair of summer jeans, in a nice mid-blue rinse.

The ones I really want are at Witchery, but they are sold out online (so I can't give you a picture) and hard to find in my size in store.
I would like a nude wedge (that sounds a bit dirty....) What do you think of these?
Until I find my perfect pair of jeans, and get my Wine Wedges, I will have to make do with what is in my wardrobe. I have some great pieces, but I struggle to style them nicely...
What should I put with this Binny Maxi (aka Nina) Skirt for a long summer afternoon.... a black singlet? Any other ideas?
What about this Gorman Skirt that I got on special a couple of months ago?
And, the biggest conundrum, what can I wear with these shoes? That don't make my legs look stumpy....Have been just doing skinny black jeans....
Come, style mavens.... do your thing. Nikki and Melissa....can you come play?
Do you have a jeans brand that you swear by? Good for bigbumbigthighsshortlegs?
