I know outfit posts aren't really my thing but I got these fabulous new shorts and I just had to share.

Culotte Shorts: Ally Fashion
T-Shirt: Bonds
Jellies: Rubi Shoes

Sportsgirl Pout About It lipstick - "Pretty Please"
Sunnies - Perv

Took these photos in the five spare minutes I had before running out the door. They're a bit rushed, sorry. Note the lack of earrings and can't-be-bothered hairstyle (my go-to style, actually).

I love love love love love these shorts. I got them on the weekend from Ally Fashion (which I wandered all over the city to find, I might add) for only $30. They have a chiffon feel to them and faux leather accents on the pockets and are probably going to be a bitch to wash, but oh well. The style flatters my shape well, I think, and the most important feature of all: they are so comfy. I wore them today and literally felt like I was in my pyjamas. Given today's top of 30°C, these shorts were a lovely break from my regular tight denim ones. I think I'm going to be looking for a similar pair in a lighter colour - maybe a print.

What else happened on the weekend? Oh yeah, I bought my first lipstick. Friends had recommended Mac and Rimmel to me, but Mac seemed a little bit out of my beginner league and Rimmel was sold out at the Priceline store I went to. So I ended up with a Sportsgirl one and I love it. The colour is lovely - pinkish but still natural, and the lipstick glides on so smoothly. It basically felt like high class lip gloss. And now I have my eye on a Revlon lipstick and Priceline is advertising a 2-for-1 deal. Oh dear. Oh deary me.

My shoes, of course, broke this afternoon and I had to limp my way to the train station and get my mum to pick me up from the other end. Nice going, Dinah. Always a class act. Oh well, that's what I get for buying fifteen dollar shoes. They might be repairable. I don't know, I haven't really looked yet. Came home from uni today and got straight into bed and fell asleep. Woke up later, very hungry. Oh, the life of a student.

Now it's midnight and I have twelve hours to finish and submit a creative piece. Plus, you know, I like to sleep. So I should probably stop rambling. Ciao!


  1. OH MY GOD YOUR SHOES! I would only wear those shoes when I was a kid and refused to wear anything else - I had them in every size!
    Good luck with the assignment <3

  2. hahaha I loved them too :) It's a shame they broke - I was really enjoying being five again. :P
    Thanks! Just finished. I can breathe now.

  3. You wouldn't believe it, but I've been on the hunt for a pair of skorts too! I just think they'd look much dressier, and despite that they'd be deceivingly comfy. I've wanted some in different prints too, so that makes the both of us.
    P.S. I have absolutely no problem with more outfit posts ;)

  4. Yay u went to Ally hehe
    I probably should have told you where it was...oops...><
    I never would have thought to go to sportsgirl for lipstick! But srsly that colour is gorgeous!
    Your skin looks so perfff
    Also can't believe those shoes broke already! Typical rubi shoes =((
    Btw chemist warehouse is having 50% off cosmetics!

  5. ahahaha well i totally recommend them! I want all of the skorts! :)

    okay, noted! :)

  6. I did! hahahha. and yeah, i found it eventually. Went to the World Square one - couldn't be bothered looking for the Wynyard one.
    I only thought of it because just the other day I read a review of their lipsticks and they seemed good! (Also cheaper hahaha)
    GAH NO DON'T TELL ME THAT! Priceline has a 2-for-1 deal on Revlop lip products :/ eeeeeeek

  7. I just realised I already mentioned the priceline thing hahahahahah whoops.
