Although I could not be further from anywhere that would require me to have a ridiculously expensive swimming costume, it does not stop me from lusting after these amazing suits from Black Milk Clothing. The prints by this company are just fantastic, nothing is too extravagant. There is no less is more when it comes to these designs, more is just, well, better!! So if you want to stand out in the crowd and having something very unusual head over to their website and take a look at all their products. They will look great at a festival, on a beach or tucked in jeans, leggings or shorts. Although rather pricey at $90 Australian dollars, you know you’re getting something unique and original. You won’t see too many Top Shop clones strutting around in one of these this summer! And, if you team up with a pal you’ll get free postage – winner winner chicken dinner!!

(Yep, still sounds strange…)
Of course, being broke I couldn’t afford a sewing machine, so I took my CD player (!) to the local pawnshop and got a little cash for it. And that is how I bought my first sewing machine. Of course, I had absolutely no idea how to use it, but I didn’t care. I would just have to figure it out! That was all part of the adventure. Next step – fabric…”
