boy things...

wearing: vintage blouse. sportsgirl trousers. ysl belt. topshop shoes.

So this is the other blouse I got from fi & co. I really like it. Although because of the shape/pattern you actually have to be selective with how you wear it. I've found this boyish style to be the most successful so far. And keeping it ladylike with the ridiculously steep heels. Although they could be easily replaced with sandals or even little boat shoes (maybe that's more of a hair down or messy bun thing too). But the pink lips are a must. It's a mixture of two of the best lip colours invented - Funny Face by NARS and Myth by MAC. The weather has been a bit gloomy and cold lately, but it would seem the sun is starting to come out a little more. So yet again I shall prepare my skin (exfoliate and fake tan) so that I may bear them without causing too much eye damage to the unfortunate people passing my glowing skin. Oh I love summer. Those of you with naturally curly hair and fair skin will understand. I'm thinking I should finally put up those photos from France that I said I would. Mmm. We'll see. Until then I look forward to my next post with hopefully a more sun-kissed-self.

spring appears...

wearing a little american apparel stripy turtle neck thing. and a skirt i bought in france by the kooples. the belt is also from paris and possibly my favourite purchase of the whole trip - vintage givenchy. 
so i spent all last week in the subiaco arts centre rehearsing and performing for the waapa contemporary show. it was super awesome to be asked to be involved in the show as it's not for first years, so it was an awesome experience. so depressing to be back at uni. i want to be performing every night!
something else depressing is the weather. the sun was starting to shine and i was starting my darn fake tan routine and now it's just decided to get cold and rainy. not cool. ah the time will come. hope you're all doing brilliant. another post soon. ooh yeah.

fi & co

Went shopping the other day on William st, something I've never really done before. But finally took some quality time to walk up and down and find the scattered gems. Went in to fi & co and discovered their carefully selected vintage sections, where I got this silk blouse. Reminds me of every piece of my nanna's wardrobe, yet appeals to me in every way. Wore this little ensemble to my friend's gig. His band The Cult of Addiction just got in to the finals of the National Campus Band Competition. so proud.
This skirt is American Apparel and the wedges Tony Bianco. Two seriously reliable assets in my closet. Probably wear them too much.
