Unicorns & Collars / How to Slow Down Time

Dress is thrifted | Handmade unicorn pin c/o Ginger Pickle | socks and bag are thrifted | sock cuffs are DIY

I am thoroughly fed-up with what has seemed to be the longest summer ever here in Australia, because it's prevented me from being able to wear patterned tights and layer up with cute cardigans (which, if you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that these are my "things" when it comes to clothing!) So I've been having to find ways to make my outfit more interesting, while still wearing as little as possible to deal with the heat. One solution I have found for this has been to wear interesting brooches/pins, like this unicorn pin from Ginger Pickle! Ginger Pickle is one of the stores that I listed on my Ethical Fashion Directory back in September last year, so I'm pleased to now be collaborating with them on my blog; they're a store that I really believe in and want to support! They also stock the CUTEST STUFF - go and check them out, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Today I have a video from Discovery News (presented by the wonderful Laci Green) about ways in which you can both alter, and have altered, your perception of time! Enjoy.
I'm also going to add that my perception of summer being the longest ever has totally been affected by not being able to wear patterned tights. Somehow. Yes. So scientific.

Have a great day, guys!

    1. Haha I even got to haggle for mine! Haggled the seller down to $13, no wonder she seemed so disappointed if she paid $50 for it. oh well, that's what you get at a market stall ;)

    2. Ah yes they do sell some nice things there. I thought you were finding these gems at Vinnies or Salvos!
      Anyway thanks! :)

  4. What a wonderful dress! I find it so hard to believe you find such lovely things at op shops, but then again I go every school break to an op shop out of the city and find incredible stuff! I know exactly what you mean about it being the longest summer ever (for some reason I dress for winter on 37 degree days and go out in a cotton smock dress in the middle of winter)

  6. I'm loving your summer outfits! Probably because I'm so over this winter already. I'm dreaming of dresses and no sleeves! Maybe that's why winter feels like it's dragging... ^__^

  8. Amazing outfit and the unicorn brooch is magical!! Thanks for the video by the way. I have always realized that time slows down if you just stare at it, but of course it's probably not as slow as when you are in a life threatening situation. Of course I hope to never find that out :)

      I actually have a list of the blogs I really love here, if you want to have a look :D
      I didn't actually follow any blogs when I made my own heheh, so I wasn't at the time! But I think I've been influenced by those people in that list along the way!
