Too Friday for a Thursday

March 8th, 2020 by Selise

Would you look at how incredible this shirt is? It has orange juice and a dude playing the saxophone, spots, stripes, hot cars and all round raddery.

It was part of what I am calling The Greatest Thrifting Experience of my Life. Remind me to tell you about it sometime.

Apparently the suspenders and Converse made the whole thing a little ‘too Friday’ for the Thursday I wore it at work, according to one guy. But then I figured, it this weren’t a leap year, it would be Friday.

The math behind that doesn’t really hold up if you look too closely but honestly, who wants to look at math when you can look at this masterpiece of a shirt?

To Market

August 29th, 2017 by Selise


The most wonderful thing has happened, friends. I’ve somehow started a gorgeous collection of vintage dresses.



I say somehow; I mean, I know how. By purchasing them from op-shops.  It wasn’t intentional, is what I meant. But it sure is wonderful!



This is Jennifer (you’ve met Sigourney). I wore her on the weekend to see an incredible pair of writers speak as part of the Queensland Poetry Festival.



It was a sunny Saturday morning and paired with my Converse and handmade, bold print bag (not pictured but really freaking cool) I felt like I was on my way to 4ZZZ Market Day back in 1997. I remember wearing a white slip, no doubt layered over another. Maybe even with a babydoll tee, which, you know what? Would totally be vintage now.

(P.S. For anyone playing along on the other side of the world, I know it doesn’t look like it but it’s actually winter right now.)
