This year alone around 12,000 Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. By purchasing pink products, or by buying a pink gift yourself, you can help Cancer Council to support special women in your life who have been touched by Breast Cancer. So I urge you all if you see a pink product to pick it up and purchase. These include ribbons, bracelets, pens even Dove have pink soaps and body sprays that are giving back to the cancer council.
So think PINK for today and be sure to tell all the women in your life just how much you love them.

Euchronia, from the Greek eu (good) and chronos (time), promises a fine evening of musical and terpsichorean pursuits: a good time for all! Euchronia 2010 will feature three main sound-spaces and a number of additional niche spaces, each with a different musical focus. The main stage in the huge Central Hall will host bands, live cabaret-style acts and some DJ'ed music. The Mezzanine floor above will comprise a dedicated dance space featuring a mix of new romantic, gothic fusion, industrial, retro, futuristic, electro and EBM music to keep the dance-obsessed euphoric until the wee small hours. Finally, our Parlour will be a designated relaxation space with a more ambient and laid-back soundscape. In addition Euchronia 2010 introduces a Member's Lounge for the exclusive use of Antipodean League members throughout the evening.

I adore Spring, and with Spring comes Halloween. Now the aussies don't really celebrate it over here in Melbourne, however I love this holiday. Sure I like the dressing up, candy and make believe for a day. But what I truly love is the old aspect of this holiday. A night where the souls of the living and the dead can be as one. Where everyone who's passed can visit those still alive.
So in honor of this day I am planning a Halloween themed outfit and baking cookies. Ok I might even take in bags of lollies to work for everyone. Come on who doesn't love lollies.

This little number is a red and black bengaline number from Portmans. It was a simple pencil skirt with red bodice and was a lot cheaper than the USA version I found online not so long ago. I've always seemed to stumble across great little retro inspired numbers at Portmans, so while there I did also pick up a sheer cream silk pussy bow shirt and another black pencil skirt. Perfect for my 'school misstress' ala 1950 look or when I fancy a bit of Mad Men office inspired glamour.
Then there was this gem from Friends of Couture. It may look like Alannah Hill but thankfully doesn't have the price tag so it just had to come home with me. Since its a 3/4 sleeve and an open knit its great for spring or when those summer nights have a chill to them. Plus I just love the knitted love heart buttons, how cute!
And lastly I picked up this love bites cami and boxer set from Peter Alexander. Its a light cotton so again great as we head into summer. Plus it also fits my rockabilly feel at the moment. So there you have it 3 modern stores, 3 modern pieces that with the right extras a perfect retro pieces.
