About Me

My photo
My new outlook on fashion began with the first pair of Wayfarers that I'd purchased in LA. I then lived in Manchester for a while and grew to love the grungy alternative English style. Europe gave me a new perspective on fashion exposing me to styles such as the Spanish hippy and Parisian class. Now I feel more aware of looks, styles and trends and hope to explore those observations through this blog. Enjoy!


Ebay purchases

I bought these bad boys on ebay. CAN'T freaking wait to get them. Pray that they fit.

Finally I've found a pair of vintage boots!! I've been on the search for a while now and was well convinced on purchasing a pair of dc martens but i hope these do the trick.

And yes, I've succumb to the fad that is denim jackets ... so I purchased this old Levi's one on ebay for $1 (+$10 postage - that's where they get ya) this one:

I know it's a little ugly but I think I will make it into a vest by taking off the sleeves and putting some texture through it by rubbing it with sandpaper to it to rough it up - perhaps use some bleach to add further detail. Any ideas are welcome :)

RIP Farrah

Everyone's going on about Michael.

RIP Fawcett. You will remain ever beautiful in my eyes. Such a natural beauty...
it seems rarer and rarer these days.



I really do love lace

No need to comment on why... this is just stunning.

Alexa Chung

British model / tv host Alexa Chung is a babe. I love her style, her look, her accent. Everything about her oozes cool. She's just got it all going on. Check her out. above pic source

(and she wore this to a festival... does that look like silk chiffon?)

(excuse my ignorance i dont know who she is with here - presumably the bf? one of the strokes? i feel pretty stupid for not knowing but anyway her outfit is hot!)

(With Kelly in the cutes little black dress. Check out her laced heels - it's a winner!)



Natsui love

I walked past the Elio Moda shop in Brisbane City and literally found love in the form of a beautiful pair of black suede lattice booties. The photo totally doesn't do it justice.

And an added perk - these shoes are by Australian designer Natsui. RRP $300. I can't afford them :( And although they are my love and the most perfect pair of heels i've ever seen, I'm going to resist, be a good girl, and hold back on this potentially lethal purchase.




Uni is over for the semester!! Sorry I've been away guys :( I've had little sleep and my back is aching from poorly sitting at my desk trying to finish my final design project. It was a big one I'm not gonna lie. Anyway, cutting a long story short - I'd rather be in France...

(Like me here, in Versailles with my friend the swan)

So Uni's over and I haven't properly shopped in like, 3 weeks. I love shoes, have a little obsession. My sister and her friend had to clean my wardrobe out while I was away last year and sorted them all in their boxes .... Some of them:

But what I really is more shoes, (a girl can never have enough) - these Californian made Esquivel shoes...

Now I know they look a bit manly, and yes they probably are... but manly is totally in fashion right? Katie Holmes rocks boyfriend jeans - I've even seen Victoria Beckham in David's. Yes finally, comfy is in! So I like these shoes that are unusually cute - probably a few hundred dollars but I still want a pair. I'd figure out a way to wear them.



My jewellery box

And following on from my last post while I was photographing my neat little scarf collection I also took the liberty to take some nice shots of my favourite jewellery for you. As you know I love jewellery. (And yes I'm probably spelling jewellery wrong because it appears that my spell checker is telling me it's spelt jewelery but I think that's American spelling right?)

Anyway I'm going off track.... Have a look.

Watch: Calvin Klein (purchased in Los Angeles)
Rings: (L>R) a sixpence coin by Von Treskow , my favourite a bow by Stolen Girlfriends Club, gold with little diamonds from an ex-boyfriend, silver with stone from an old highschool boyfriend and a flower vintage one from Grandma
Earrings: Rose shaped, black stone (purchased in Barcelona)
Pendant: "T" from Mimco
Pearls: Mad Monnies (my Aunties bead shop)
Jade beads: Hong Kong (gift from an Aunty)


Did I tell you I'm obsessed with scarves? Surely I would've? I have the biggest collection. I think in total there are about 25.... I have vintage scarves, new scarves, friends scarves, silk scarves, wool scarves. Scarves from Paris, Manchester, Madrid, Brisbane, Hong Kong and Thailand. Some of the high street labels include Oroton, Sportscraft and Diane Von Furtensburg. The list could go on. So without further ado I will show you these many scarves.

This one didn't make the group shot... I was wearing it. It's probably one of my favourites. I found it in a little vintage shop in Madrid, Spain.
