Fatheads and Wizards and Pond Scum, oh my!

I found these sequinned Converse high tops 
(brand new with tags) in Vinnies this week. 
There's no place like op shops.

Actually, it was a pretty incredible op shopping week. I also found the dreamiest early 70s maxi 
AND my favourite kaftan ever

Now that I have conquered maxis at work, it may be time to take my office to kaftanistan.

But for now, this is what I wore today, for a chilled out Sunday. These pjs are too good not to wear out.

There is some amazing street art around here. 

The slimy pond scum only adds to the experience. 
After all, it's ART, mofos.

I wore: 
Pirate pyjama pants - Retail 
Sequinned chucks, bracelets, cardigan and sunnies - Op shopped 
Tshirt - Op shopped and painted by me

Proof that you can look casual without wearing jean, khakis or something cropped.

Carina Rosenholm said...

Ohh... I love those Converse ! And what a perfect match with the pj´s !!

Krista said...

There no place like home! I love these new chucks omfg those were waiting or you Bigtime! The pj buttoms are so sweet on you with those shoes and I do think Australia has some amazing street art too. Trees and Nerd Burger have had some cool stuff on their blog before.

Red Shoes said...

I LOVE your red shoes... but then, I'm biased.

I doubt I could pull off that sequinned look, however.


cb said...

Those shoes are perfect for you! I wanna see these other fabulous op finds! You look beautiful as always!

pastcaring said...

Yay, Sarah's out and about in her PJ bottoms looking saucy! Oh those cute little red bows - I'm seeing Victorian burlseque bloomers rather than pirates, but that's just me. A combination of the two would be excellent!
Those sequinned Converse were a great find, and I can't wait to see your maxi and your new kaftan - definitely time for work to know the joy of Sarah-in-a-kaftan!

Fabulous street art - and even more fabulous YOU.
LOVE! xxxxxx

You look like you just leapt out of that street art to do a little dance around in those awesome sparkly shoes before returning to your happy place. How did that pond scum know that it would look so brilliant with this backdrop?

You are a beam of light here. Gorgeous! I love love that last photo.

Sequined shoes, PJ pants and graffiti walls, does it get any better??? Your PJ pants are fab, not like what the things over here wear to the shops!!
