“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn” Orson Welles

You will soon see why I'm not a fashion blogger, if only for my photographic abilities...

I don't know how you do those boards you you'll just have to look piece by piece and put it together yourself!

I shop mainly by an online company, who I'm not going to name because I'm currently furious with them for sending me a hat in a plastic bag so it arrived looking like this:

Instead of just refunding me the money based on the photos like they have in the past, I've had to post it back with great hassle on my part, and I'm still waiting for the money. So no plugs for them - and given your stats, that's a big loss for them.

Anyway, I got myself this fabulous number for $45 (I got 2 other things so postage was $3.50 if you divide it up). Trollied Dolly Dress with a super cute cutout detail.

I got these little earrings from Bundanoon Markets for $10.

The stockings came from Alannah Hill bargain bin, while trawling around on my random acts of kindness mission - down to $10. They have sexy 'pretend' suspenders, a look I'm a little obsessed with at the moment, which is weird given I'm 107 and don't really pull off sexy...

Lastly, the I LOVE Billy shoes I got online about a million years ago, so from memory they were $25 (postage was divided up with another pair of shoes but I sold them on ebay and charged the buyer the postage I paid in the shoe cost.)

Under $100 including postage....happy, happy!
