Work Outfit Challenge - THE FINAL DAY!

The challenge is complete! 209 different outfits - some successful and some not. I'll be glad to not have to think about whether I have worn this with that or not next year. I am hoping to create a bit more of a niche style next year and have recently discovered some new brands which I'll be searching for on my old friend eBay. It will be nice to be reunited with eBay ... it's been a while since I was an active buyer.

I hope everyone has a terrific Christmas and new year period. Thanks to everyone who reads and especially those that leave comments - it truly makes my day.

Over and Out for the last time in 2011.

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 207.


Third last day of the challenge! I've had this dress in my wardrobe for quite a few years now. I wore it to our work Christmas party four or five years ago and I've brought if out of the woodworks for an appearance today.

I am seriously considered giving my hair a bit of a chop. Be prepared for a potential new do early in the new year!

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 206.

Happy Tuesday!

What do you think I would look like with a change of hairstyle? New look for the new year perhaps? I doubt I would ever have the balls to do it though. Have you ever majorly cut your hair?

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 205.

Yay, the countdown to Christmas really is on now. It's now less than a week now till Santa arrives which means I am in my final week of work this year and thus the final week of my challenge.

You may wonder what this challenge is. If you have no idea, click here.

So many sales have started already!! It is very tempting but I am trying my best to resist. One of the potentially irresistible sales is the Portmans sale.

I already have this dress and it is only $10 cheaper than when I bought it at $69.95. If you are looking for a versatile dress for parties, weddings and race days this is your dress.

I'm tempted to go down and see what this dress looks like in person. I'd choose coral or green and at $29.95 it is an awesome $70 saving!

Today marks the 5th last day of my challenge. I decided to team this new-to-me Steve Madden singlet with this skirt I picked up from the Supre outlet on Saturday. This top is a size large and gazing at this photos makes me realise I should not be wearing a size large when I am not really a size large.

Last point of business today is to direct you over to my new blog at I'd love it if you all came over there for a look-see and joined up as a follower if you were interested. I hope that I can share flea market finds, displays of our work and maybe even a few vintage outfits here : )

Three and a half days left of work this year. Wahoo!

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 204.

Who said blue and green should never be seen?! Today I've worn a dress as a skirt and layered a super cheap top from Katies over the top. I quite like the outcome.


My super shiny hair is courtesy of a new bottle of Morroccon Oil - that stuff is magic!

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 203.

There hasn't been a lot of productivity (at least from my end) in the office this morning as we are preparing for our annual Christmas decoration competition. The judging is on this afternoon and our team has gone with a south pole correctional centre theme. Our prison uniform is black top and jeans - hence today's outfit. Here are some photos from playing silly buggers earlier this morning.


How much work actually happens at your work at this time of year?!

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 202.

Hello my awesome readers on this gloriously sunny day. Summer appears to have arrived and I'm loving it!

I'm soon off to another morning tea --- this one not Christmas related but for the retirement of a lovely lady in our department who has the most amazing shoe collection.

Work Outfit Challenge - Day 201

Morning lovelies. Christmas is nearing and so is the end of the work year! Hooray.


The husband and I will be venturing down to Wooli on the far north coast of NSW for Christmas ... let's hope the weather is nice so we can spend some time at the beach lounging around before and after lunch. It's a cute little town of about 500 people just down the road from Grafton and this will be our 3rd or 4th visit. What are you plans for Christmas?


My bloody hair looked semi-nice this morning and now it has gone to shit. Must get down to our local hair wholesaler and pick up some Moroccon oil.

Anyway, enough whinging! Today's dress was picked up at a garage sale packed with clothes that were all a dollar. One dollar! Craziness! I'm not in love with it but it will do. I've teamed it with a pair of my favourite looking but not so favourite feeling heels.
