Surprisingly, today I did some productive and social things!
Firstly, a friend and I went to this!
It was the first "Gallery Opening" that I've ever been to, so I had no idea what to expect. Despite my lack of expectation, I was still surprised! The exhibition space was a very chick basement bar in Collins St, and it was gorgeous, low lights, modern geometric decor and giant crosses everywhere. Although the place was beautiful it had me wondering what this bar and others will do when the religious cross goes out of fashion. Moving on to the art! What there was, was great! But there wasn't much. And I wouldn't go so far as to call it art art, I would say it is more illustrative art, which is still art but a lighthearted form of it. I do recommend going to the exhibition, but not only to see the illustrations; more to have visually stimulating evening of drinks with friends in a super-gorgeous location. Unfortunately we didn't stay for long, Ash couldn't afford to fork out $9 for a beer.
This is what I wore! (Sorry about the crappy photo, Ash isn't the greatest photographer and I don't pose seriously.)
The dress is from Sportsgirl, it was on sale for $29 and although at first I wasn't at one with the print, the cut is amazing and now I can't get enough of it! For curvy girls like me this dress is incredibly flattering, and to prove it I was complimented by four strangers tonight. FOUR! What a flattering night.
The other productive thing I got up to was some sewing. I bought a large off-cut of thick upholstering fabric that I had planned to turn into a DIY ultra-shaped skirt. Unfortunately I have already run into a few setbacks but I'm going to see what I can do and I'll post photos later.
