Tribal Trance

Necklace - Feather + Arrow
Belt - Vintage
Shoes - Treadlight
Elly and I were going to go down to the beach and take some photos but it started to rain and so we ended up going into the garden.  You can see some raindrops on me and I'm smiling because it was a bit funny. Elly is a personal trainer ( The Body Love Foundation )  and isn't normally a photographer but she did a great job and we had fun.
This is a separate top and pants and I love how they can be mix and matched with other earthy tones.  Primitive Tribal Craft are based out of Israel and I love the earthiness of their creations. They are also handmade fair trade. Make sure you check out their Facebook page, they have some beautiful photos.  I was surprised and happy to see that readers from Israel make up my third largest readership. First is my home country Australia, followed by United States. I love that we can connect from all over the world!
I have been listening to some older music by a band from the 90s called Tribal Trance that were based here on the Sunshine Coast. Many years ago I was given a couple of CDS from one of the founding members Matt James who is now a solo musician. At one time we decided to go live in a kombi van so I gave all my CDS away, I was happy to find one of the CDS at a thrift shop not too long ago called ' Minjahra '. I also found 'Deep in Didge' on eBay so have ordered it as it's one of my favourites. Chris Lane who you may know from Oka was also a member of the time. I love to crank it loud, lay down and just let the sound go right through me. 

Wolf Child

Nocturnal Drifter Tee - Wolf Child
Black Wild Gypsy Skirt - Bijou the Label
Thanks to the Imperial Lionheart Hotel

I have seriously been wearing this tee everywhere! I love the boho artwork by Sabrina who not only illustrates the tees and sells them on her website but she also has a small range of clothing and accessories to compliment her t-shirts. And of course who doesn't like owls, they represent wisdom and intuitive knowledge!
Elly from The Body Love Foundation has been helping me get into tip top shape and her friendship has been invaluable. Not only is she an amazing personal trainer she kindly took these photos for me! She said she isn't a photographer but didn't she do a great job?! I just cropped and edited them!

Merry People

Gumboots - Merry People
Yellow Top - Vintage
Denim Shorts - Billabong

My calendar is filling up with all the amazing music events and festivals coming up in the remainder of the year, and I have already started to think about what I am going to wear ( I just can't help myself heehee).  Especially when I heard that Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest has a Woodstock theme this year! Who doesn't love a good dress up? And that theme is riiiiight up my alley. I'm going to have a ball not only enjoying some of my favourite bands playing there ( Caravana Sun, Cheap Fakes and The Floating Bridges to name a few) but I will also be roving around taking photographs galore. (Make sure you get tickets so as they are set to sell out as numbers are capped).

Add my new gumboots from Merry People to the equation and I know I am going to have a great time. I have actually been wearing these everywhere as they go with so many things and they are super duper comfy. Ah so excited for good times to come!

Hopeless Romantic

Vintage 70s Plum Purple Dress with Bell Sleeves & Embroidery - Thatch Vintage
Shoes - Rubi

I had been stalking the Instagram page of Thatch Vintage for a while and dreaming about some of their most beautiful 70s selections so when this gorgeous dress became available I couldn't wait to wear it.

Confession to make. I would never have considered myself a romantic. That said I recently decided to have a solo movie night and borrowed 'Cinderella'.  It brought out a little bit of the romantic side in me I must say and I actually really enjoyed it. I think also it reminded me of being a little girl and finding my mothers old vintage dresses and dressing up in them, dreaming of one day being old enough to wear gowns like the ones in the stories I read. Guess I kind of made that dream come true without even realising it :)

Indian Silk

 Indian Silk Dress - Vintage
Leather Jacket - Vintage
Henna - Divine Henna Design
Cowboy Boots - Vintage

We took these photos on a freezing cold day and with the dress being silk I could feel the wind go straight through it ... brrrr.

I have to admit I am so looking forward to summer. I have been making an effort in this cold weather to spend some time on the beach trying to soak up some rays.
