I'm absolutely in love with these photos. The whispy and ethereal glow of the model and all the yummy vintage lace paired with the afternoon sunlight makes me wish I could lounge around somewhere all day in light as air lace and floral crowns.

leopard chiffon.

Subtitled military jacket // Cotton On striped tee // UNIF get it skirt // Tony Bianco kavana wedges //
Miu Miu madras clutch // Chloe sunglasses (similar here) // OPI vodka & caviar

I still remember the long process it took for me to get my hands on this skirt. I first saw it on Nastygal and fell in love. However, I debated whether I actually needed it. 
For fear of not knowing when/where/how to wear it rather than the impulse not to shop.

But as all such deliberations end, it became quickly sold out
And such, properly propelled (ooo...alliteration!) by the sold out on the website I searched the high seas (or surfed the web?) until I saw it on RevolveClothing and seized the opportunity.

And so it migrated from their storage to my wardrobe, where it sat for a good half a year untouched. My first presumption was right. Although I quite like it dressed down with the jacket, it's still only been worn twice.

And you thought that this was going to be a story about true love, didn't you?

summer whites.

Sass & Bide tank // Alannah Hill cardigan // Wrangler denim shorts // Nastygal fringe bag // Steven Madden shoes

Okay, so my title is a wee bit deceiving. But so was the weather that day too. I thought it was going to be a summer 2.0 kind of day. It was, until the sun set and I was left freezing in the cold. 

But in more important news. I finally watched Hunger Games and it was ah-mazing. Not as good as the book though, although for most books-turned-movies, that's always the case.
It was definitely worth the watch!

Additionally, it's exactly 2 weeks to my birthday. 
Another year closer to my quarter life crisis
...
I calculate with the assumption that I'm gonna live to 100
Not cause I'm healthy or anything
But mainly because it's easier maths

hope you all enjoyed the long weekend!

I wish the weather would get sunny again so I could wearing this outfit (in my dreams)

denim and the red doors


Stylestalker criss-cross dress // MNG denim shirt (similar here) // ASOS boots (really old) // 
Alexander Wang Rocco (similar here) // Chloe sunglasses

I feel like lately I've been dressing more casual chic rather than my more usual girly-ness. I've had these boots for probably 4 years but this is the first time I've worn them properly. I love the wrap around straps and the peep toe but honestly they cut off my legs like crazy, so they've been sitting under my bed collecting dust.

I'm so happy I finally gotten to wear it!

ps/ I hope it's not too inappropriate to be wearing an oversized and gaudy cross during Easter. On that note, Happy Easter! Hope you're enjoying the break and all the chocolate eggs.

saturday brunching


Stylestalker there she goes playsuit // Sportsgirl military jacket (similar here) // Topshop creeper shoes// 
Alexander Wang Rocco (love this combination) //

I don't think you ever really appreciate the weekends until you start working, and getting a group of friends together starts getting harder and harder every week. I know I never appreciated the weekends until it became the only time I could see my friends or spend time with my family. 

This past saturday was spent at Jones Bay Wharf having lunch/brunch at Cafe Morso
The environment and the food was perfect
And to make it even better, the sun was all happy and bright!

This jacket has returned to my wardrobe after wandering off into my mum's closet for the past year. But I needed something heavier to set off the playsuit that I'm wearing. I'm bummed that I wasn't able to get any good shots of the playsuit but let me assure you, it's beyond beautiful!

I hope everyone had a good weekend and enjoyed themselves

off duty

off duty

(1)  J Brand leather pants
(2)  Isabel Marant Luz Handknit cardigan
(3)  Mango heels
(4)  Ray Ban Classic Aviators
(5) Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic Bag

I know most of the world is getting super excited for spring
But for those of us living upside the world
we don't really have that luxury
to be honest, it's kind of killing me that everyone is getting ready for summer- Sydney's summer was the biggest disappointment
and before it really even began, we're getting ready for autumn

Although, autumn is my favourite time of the year
The sun is still balmy, the days are still longer 
and it's the beginning of light layering.
To me, Miranda Kerr is the queen of the perfect autumn layering
A touch of class and a lot of street cred

This was meant to be a autumn layering collage but I got distracted by those J Brand leather pants
WHICH I NEED IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW

simplicity.


bassike white tee // asos leather skirt // jeffrey campbell heels // alexander mcqueen scarf (similar here) //
michael kors watch // mimco yellow bracelet (similar here) // witchery bucket bag (similar here)

This is pretty much my go to outfit for days when I'm running late for class and when the weather looks like it can go either way.
I love anything that's leather, because I think it just gives it that extra edge and makes getting dressed that much more fun

Although, if I was going to be completely truthful...leather makes me feel rock'n'roll :)
especially worn with one of my mcqueen scarves

I feel very old school wearing the skull scarf
A few years ago they were everywhere you look; my mum and I went cray-cray and bought a variety of the colour combinations
The other day when I dug them out and wore it again
My mum sat me down and very seriously asked me why we had so many and why we didn't have the most basic combination (white & black)
She had that look on her face, the one she gets right before she tells me to scour the internet to try and find something

But then we couldn't agree on whether we wanted black with white print or white with black print. She thinks black with white is too rock'n'roll and I think white with black is too boring.
Then we realised why we had all these colour combinations and no monochrome.

My mother is a terrible influence on my shopping bang
I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all

bondi wanderings.


(1) bondi beach
(2) & (3) loving the palm trees
(4) the mosaics seats dotted along the street
(5)& (7) asos skirt, sportsgirl knit, lv petit noe
(6) i love the colours! need it in my room
(9) one of the best burgers i've had in awhile
(10) sydney's answer to pinkberry
(11) how very retro

I know I haven't been the most dedicated blogger as of late. 
But I figured I better post these photos before another weekend comes and goes
The past saturday, I went to Bondi Beach with my other pea ( because we're two peas in a pod)for a catch-up session and good food
It probably wasn't the best idea, eating so close to so many shops

Now, don't get me wrong. I love shopping in big shopping centres (or m-alls) as much as the next girl. But, there's something so intimate about shopping at boutiques and walking down the street search for the next store. Especially when the sun is bright and everyone around you is dressed so well. 

the other pea came armed with a list of things to do and buy...
he ended up with a new pair of chinos
whilst i ended up another shopping bag from tuchuzy and a much much lighter wallet

But there's something about bondi beach and the surrounding streets that i enjoy so much. there's so many cafes to try and chill at- and so much things to do and buy

and just walking down the street, people are so well-dressed
but not in the stuffy way. it's all very effortless chic

Visual orgasm.
