taste of spring...

Today was just the loveliest weather. I spent a little time shopping and drinking iced coffee with my sweet friend today, and as we walked out of the car park we prepared ourselves. Pulling our sleeves down, folding our arms and dropping our heads to face the wind. Turns out it was decently warm :) and my day only got better from there. So in an attempt to summarise...
Found a ring I've been wanting a long time; bought a fedora that made me so happy about spring time weather; discovered 'Lucky 13' literally sells everything at $13; made a few $13 purchases; breathed in the fresh air; went to dinner with my most favourite boy in the world.
Honestly, I did well...

oh and I believe this whole outfit cost less than $100 - impressive right ;)

and along with magic powers, I turned the day outfit into night...
not sure what angle is best...

Wearing Daytime: Supre jeans AND floral dress (as a top), Sportsgirl fedora and ring, Cotton On sunglasses, shoes from 'Store' then...
Nightime: Added cardigan, rolled down the jeans, and added some comfy, not to mention overtly high, heels. ooh, and pulled my hair back.

Share with you my Lucky 13 purchases soon,

world wide web...

I have realised just how awesome online shopping is. And just thought I'd let you know that I have a few things on their way from urban outfitters and asos. excited to say the least. So i look forward to sharing with you my fancy pancy, all the way over the ocean, packages with you soon! And just for some visual interest, one of my favourite photos of Charlie (when he was a shagball!)

alice in wonderland...

Went to a sweet sixteenth down a rabbit hole on Saturday.
Here are just a couple of little photos. And if you can't tell, I went as some sort of version on the White Queen (Anne Hathaway.) And kudos to Mikaela for setting up the place so splendid!

oh and I attempted to turn James into the Mad Hatter without white mascara.

My darling friend just bought one today and it got me thinking about summer. So here are a few snaps of a few rompers. celebrity style. of course. Seems the Kardashian girls do this well. mm and another thing, I'm not sure if we call them rompers here in Australia? But when I google searched, jumpsuit, came up with long more mechanic type suits, and romper, found me what I wanted. well, call it what you may. I think I'll be making a few purchases this summer...

Oh and for some reason it seems only the photos of the KK's worked on here anyways

Last night was my 2 year anniversary with my wonderful boyfriend Jordan. 2 years. It seems like such a long time. Almost like we should be married by now! Oh but it was such a lovely night. We went to must winebar in Mt Lawley. Pricey, but oh so tastey. Now, I didn't take photos at the restaurant for 2 legitimate reasons. 1. it was just far too dark and I didn't want the flash to potentially harm someone's eyes. and 2. It was far too embarrassing to pull out my rather large SLR in the middle of the restaurant when you are in such close proximity you practically share conversation with you neighboring table. That aside it was soo lovely. But here are a few little snaps. And oooooh I was so spoilt with my pressies, I felt lame that Jordan's was so little hehe.

Wearing: Sass and bide top, Supre tight singlet dress, Tony Bianco wedges, tights from somewhere, old school Mimco bag.
Presents: Mimco bracelet and headband, Peeptoe wedges :)

favourite things...

You know it's funny. I always get confused with the spelling of favourite. I'm sure Australia spells it like that, however little Mr MacBook seems to think differently. Favorite or Favourite?
Aside from my confused spelling here are just a few of my, well, fav things at the moment...

1. fashion toast. I'm sure if you are remotely interested in fashion blogs you would by know about Rumi Neely. By far the most effortlessly cool blogger I've come across. I visit her page on a daily basis.
2. My sportsgirl wedges. I'm yet to really venture out in these babies, but I am so looking forward to the summer time when I can pair them with some little socks and a floral dress.
3. Nail polishes I currently love. From left to right: Dark Lady by Mecca; Real Deal by Kit; Celia by Mecca (a little more summery); Asphalt by CND (literally $2); Down Low by Kit.
4. Makeup products I currently love. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer; Nars lipstick in Funny Face; MAC Blot Powder in Deep Dark for perfect contouring; Stila eyeshadow in Kitten; MAC Fluidline gel liner in Blacktrack; Nars blush in Orgasm; MAC Studio finish concealer in NW20.

Have a great day enjoying your, favourite? things!

Had a great brunch today at Cantina (Mt Lawley) with my dear friend Monique.
And as if you didn't already know, but she's the woman behind Mon Is Me (sheer brilliance.)
So I didn't bring in my camera to the cafe for some reason, but I did take some small rather terribly focused photos of the food on my iPhone. I did also resort to an attempt of self timer on my dash board - it sort of worked:) And again I didn't take a photo of my outfit (partially because I didn't have my photographer sister around) but I was wearing pink high waisted shorts. I seemed to think they were perfectly normal, but apparently people don't wear black tights, stripey shirts and baby pink shorts. Well let's say from all the looks I recieved today it had to be the abnormal presence of the pink. I think the two ladies who put down their coffee and did a complete 180 turn to point at me just as I looked up gave it away.
Anywhoo, Perth is far too safe. What is normal anyways?
Here are a few little cute snaps from the day.
Ohh and one last thing - the mushrooms (which I never usually indulge in) were rather delicious..

still in love...

I tried to post these some time ago, but some sort of file format was all wrong and it failed. But honestly, Giuseppe Zanotti, what a guy. This shoe is a bit out of his ordinary range, but that is just the perfect shaped wedge. The fur all runs the right way, and the toe is a perfect arrow. If I were $2000 richer they would be in my hands as we speak... probably stroking it...

talk about adding length to your legs. screw diamonds, a platform wedge, really is a girl's best friend ;)
