Sweet tooth.

Totally obsessed with this heart candy top from Topshop!

I think its the mix of the pastels with the novelty of valentine heart candy.

All I know is that I want to be wearing this baby whilst riding my bike on a summer afternoon, wearing my cat eye sunglasses and hair done up in a beehive!

Out of Line.

Irregular Choice just posted this sneak peek of their sunglass line, stating "coming soon".

The first thing that caught my eye? Their take on the classic "cat eye"shape. 
The second? The embroidered detail on the first black pair.

They instantly reminded me of this street style outfit worn a couple years ago at one of the various fashion weeks;

I remember I was absolutely fascinated by this outfit. I still don't know why, I think I will just put it down to the coloring and vintage nostalgia floral embroidery. Much like the sunglasses.

Stars Florals & Stripes.

 "Quick, act natural."
 "I am an airplane."
"pucker up fishes."

I am wearing... 
Camisole: Glassons | Skirt: Cotton On | Mesh neon T: Asos | Tights: Target | Shoes (although you can't really see them): Rubi | Blazer: Asos | Necklace: Lovisa

I have probably stated this once, and look I probably will state it many many more times, I love black. 
And no, it is not just because I am from Melbourne. It is, in fact, something my ever so glamourous Grandma Shirl has taught and told me through the years, "Black is a girls best friend, it's classic, versatile, and above all, flattering."
As of recent times (mainly the last 3 or 4 years) not wanting to have a repeat of, er, my "emo" year 8 stage, I have found myself wearing black, but adding bright bursts of colour to the ensemble.

In this case it is by this neon yellow mesh T I have layered over my camisole, and this floral blazer. Print look familiar? It's because I own the matching pants, which I have posted about before.

I really liked this outfit today, I like having fun with how I dress, I don't understand people who just play it safe, so mixing the colours and patterns was very enjoyable! I felt very appropriately dressed for when I went into Sass & Bide to purchase a birthday gift for a friend.

Also, sorry for the crappy images. I had to use photobooth as Padre was not around to lend a hand with the photo taking. 

In other news, here is a picture of my face looking very confused as I was exiting photobooth, the screen froze. I find it hilarious. Too good not to share...

Days Of Ore.

The folks over at Mr. Kate have done it again with their beautiful new line "Days Of Ore".
Mr. Kate first got my attention last year when I fell in love with their pairing of the "Starburst" earrings and "Worm" ear cuff. 
The new line was inspired by mythology and features pieces in yellow gold, antique gold, rose gold, and oxidized silver.

Photos taken from the Mr. Kate website

Absolutely in love with the "Nugget" ear cuff in the second last photo. 
The thing I adore about this line is the detail that make the pieces seem so dainty and delicate, which can also be said for the rest of their designs.

Head In The Clouds.

Just a quick post, made some new flower crowns today, the orange and yellow one reminds me of sitting on the beach on some hawaiian sunset holiday drinking cocktails whilst everything is set on fire, and the second just a bit of cutesy fun. 

Every time I make new ones I think about opening an online store to sell things like this and my collars I make regularly. Le sigh.

In other news, One Direction has hit Melbourne. Ashamed to admit it, but it has excited me a little. HARRY AND LIAM I LOVE YOU!
Ahem, I mean, they all seem like very nice young chaps.

X marks the spot.

I know I know, I have been rather absent the last week, shame on me. But to be fair I have been away and its my mid term uni break, so rest was needed!

Anyway, recently I have been hitting up the local op shops in search of a style of black pant, no luck on the pant front, but I did manage to still walk away with some other goodies!

Navy gold buttoned coat.

Apricot and lace dress.

Cream with gold detail buttoned jacket.

Lace nighty.

White leather purse.

Whilst walking around the salvos I spotted the apricot and lace dress and it instantly reminded me of the beautiful lace dresses Lover do, so of course I couldn't let it pass me by, even if it doesn't fit me. Oh well, I have a friend that will adore it. 
The lacy nighty on the other hand reminded me of Courtney Love and the handbag seemed to be something that Janet from The Rocky Horror Show would own. This is how I base my impulse purchasing choices.
 I can't decide if I want to keep the bag white or paint it black and add some studs, its times like this I wish I wasn't as indecisive. 
The cream and gold jacket caught my eye whilst shimmering on a clothing rack and the gold buttons got me on the navy coat. Apparently I am a magpie.

Alley creeper, light on his feet.

1. Silver Brogues - Topshop. 2. Printed T - Motel @ Topshop. 3. Photographic print skirt - Asos. 
4. White platform daisy shoe - Asos.  

Just a few items off of my current wishlist. The last pair of shoes I have been wanting for a couple of months, I think Cher Horowitz would be proud. 

I have a pants DIY coming up for you kiddies soon, with a kind of Dolly Parton/marching band/military feel going on. 

Oh, and whilst I am on the topic of wishlists...

A young David Boreanaz would go down well too, especially in Angel from Buffy form. 

Please and thankyou!

My life in instagram.

1. Playing Dress up with Bronte. 2. Hotel Breakfast. 3.Hotel Suite at Crown Towers. 4. Bees waiting at bus stop. 5. Birthday girl. 6. Uni pictures. 7. City. 8. Rainbow cake. 9. Jc at Laundromat. 10. Pulling a "I want you to draw me like one of your french girls" pose in hotel. 11. Naked for Satan. 12. Clean room. 13. Cafe. 14. Jc. 

A quick snap shot of what's been happening in my life through instagram. The other night I stayed at Crown Towers in the city with my family for one of my dad's work things. Crown kindly shouted us a room, which ended up being the Crown tower suite, which was amazing. Never experienced anything like that in my life, other from that I have been just cruising around town.
