Share: One *good* thing about sitting in a holding pattern on our flight from Sydney to Melbourne for over an hour on Friday night was that I got to watch more and more of Mike Nichols’ 1988 US classic, Working Girl…
And, as you can see, it was from the 1980s eyeshadow that I took *most* inspiration for my Saturday’s outfit!

I’ve finished up working for 2012, and I’m now looking forward to a well-deserved break.

Show: Hi, my name is Kit and I’m The Social Outfit’s new intern!
Share: A little about me… I’m from England and moved here in November of this year. I’ve had a few different career paths so far, starting with college studying Beauty, then at University studying Fine Art. I also worked in fashion retail for about 6 years and even had a go working in an office. But nothing seemed to fulfil me… so I took up the opportunity to move to Australia in search of new experiences and a change of lifestyle, which I have certainly found this far. And, with a passion for fashion, colour and always up for doing good, who better to work with than Jackie and The Social Outfit?!
And then we headed out to my university end of year celebration.
A lovely afternoon with colleagues and friends, and what I called the *wolf-dog*. She’s huge, but camera-shy, so the day involved me chasing her around to try and catch the evidence of her MASSIVE ears and head…
And just a *touch* of some orange lipstick on the eyebrows, because, you know… xo
Tell: Handmade necklace, Retrospec’d dress, vintage leather belt from secondhand store, Spin Dance petticoat, retail stockings and socks, Fluevog sandals, vintage knitting bag from op shop.
Show/Share: Today I’m off on an adventure into new suburbs, as I go to my colleague’s house to work on a academic paper for my university work. Clearly I’ve taken the theme of ‘adventure’ a little too literally: wearing cow-girl gear and *saddling up* for new surrounds! xo
Tell: Glasses from op shop, earrings from Cairns Art Gallery, queen necklace from op shop, Italian shirt from Penrith op shop, high-waisted denim skirt from op shop, leather belt borrowed from the HFO, vintage boots from op shop.
Whereas, yesterday was one of those days when I was *ready and raring to go* early in the a.m. … I was prepared for the day’s meetings, and then they progressively got cancelled as the day wore on. It’s that time of year, I think. And so it basically meant I got *dolled* up to buy my coffee locally, and then spend the day working from home. But with something new like The Social Outfit, there’s always work to do… so onwards and onwards we venture! xo
