Dress: I Like Wolves (via Market HQ) - PSST, it's $29. Yeah, about the price of a few large Big Mac meals. GET ON IT.
Necklace: Knobbly on Etsy.
I wore this dress on the night I thought I was supposed to be seeing one of my fave artists live, Passenger. After making poor Nicole (from Confident Liar) walk about 30 minutes into the heart of Redfern (not the safest place to be in while wearing a cut-out, bodycon dress) we arrived at the supposed address of the gig. Except it was an apartment block. And I was just about to urinate all over her if I didn't get to a toilet ASAP. So we asked a guy walking into the apartment complex if he knew where the gig was. He expressed his confusion which led me to ask my next question..."Can I use your toilet." He said yes. I realised as I was following him up two flights of stairs into his apartment that I was putting myself in a pretty bizarre and not-at-all safe situation. But alas, I peed, and he was lovely and his name was Matthias. Moral of the story: don't pee in stranger's houses, except when their name is Matthais. Anyway, so after that, I realised that I had read the date wrong and had in fact, turned up to the gig on the wrong day. My idiocy knows no bounds.
I am a huge-ass sucker for statement necklaces, especially when it involves my good old friend Etsy. This wood chevron necklace is handmade by Gittit, the lovely lady behind the Etsy store Knobbly. She's based in Tel Aviv, Isarel. When I received the package and it was stamped all over with "ISRAEL POST", my heart kind of ran around my body and gave all my organs a big hug. It's incredible how connected we all are in this day and age, and how insanely easy it is to reach out across the internet and give someone a virtual e-tap on the shoulder. On designing, Gittit says, "I've never studied anything remotely related to design so whenever I get a new idea I just dive in headfirst and make every possible mistake." When she's not moonlighting as an awesome independent designer, she's teaching 4-7 year olds someCapoeira. Look out for cage harness badassery to come in upcoming posts.
