Wow. Its been a while. Fantastic weather today wasn't it? Guess what.

I had the day off. Mwuahahahaha. And I spent it getting my visa stamped onto my passport (allowed to stay till 2013, yay!), having lunch with my lovely girlfriends in this awesome open air cafe near Parliament station, strolling the streets and lanes of Melbourne, not really shopping, more window shopping. And to finish off my lovely relaxing day, an ice-cream with a waffle cone. Yum.

and I have been attempting to jog three times a week. So far we're averaging 1 and a 1/2. Partly to be blamed on crazy schedules and bad weather. Getting there though

Have a ball this weekend, at the Melbourne Aquarium. Its all very exciting - they've opened up all three levels for us. The theme for the ball is Atlantis, and I have no idea what to wear. I think I'm a little too old to show up in a shell bra and tail, or a sheet/toga. A shopping trip might be in order, but I am seriously lacking in inspiration. As far as I can see, I can go two ways - either all roman-togaish (I don't know why I associate this with Atlantis, but I do) or sea-people. I turned to the internet for some inspiration:

Paul & Joe, Piccoli silk dress,

Nina Ricci, Layered tunic dress

Matthew Williamson, Islay tiered goddess dress

Marchesa, Tiered organza gown

Applique Rope Dress

Thayer King Dress

So help me dear bloggers. That little cut and paste episode didn't really help me figure anything out. What should a short, brown skinned size 8 chick go for.

If your short then you look for something short (but not Yay for you..2013!!!!

I agree. Not a long dress. AND ITS ON FRIDAY AND YOU HAVEN'T BOUGHT IT YET?????????

Personally, I think the first and second dresses are cute, however I'm not too fond of the sleeves and the color of the Piccoli silk dress.

Good luck!

if you can afford half of those options then I'd say go for the nina ricci one. hehe.
hmm well go for something bluish/coral and drapey, short and soft looking. that didnt really help, but good luck anyway.
