tshirt: Antipodium (blue version here)
jeans: Claude Maus
belt: Peter Lang
boots: Beau Coops (find them here)
bag: Lolla Palooza
neckalce: Poppy Lissiman

these boots were a little purchase i made while out with Dave the other day. i find it so hard to resist a sale. but I'd been saving so i felt like i deserved it. although i was saving for something far more significant than a pair of boots. then again, a great pair of boots can become a huge part of your life. so at the end of the day it was worth it. i think i need to do a little post on things that i am wanting right now, and that includes a few pairs of boots. i still feel like i'm searching for that perfect shoe. you need the right flat shoe, the right heel, the right boot, and the right lace up shoe. and i'm still on the quest, you know. maybe it's never ending. in fact i hope it's never ending, as it validates consistent shoe shopping for the rest of your life. so here's to never finding 'the one'. may we shop forever and find momentary happiness in these beautiful things. such as tshirts that don't quite fit the mould, like this knitted thing. and jewellery made from coins. and high waisted jeans.

hi. so there was a great part of my friday. i went to the city and caught up with my friend dave, and we ate great food and took photos as the day turned goregously sunny. firstly was sushi at aisuru in northbridge. i love firstly how black and white the space is, but also how they include trendy new flavours in to the sushi that make it a crafty blend of modern and traditional jap. this was followed by some photos in alleyways and other curious spaces (thank you, david). and finished with some chai and cookie at venn. a place i'd heard of but never been to. it's a crazy hybrid empire of homewares, food, drink and art, which really impressed me. above you can see me instagramming a photo. something i seem to be brilliant at. instagram. if you're interested, my user name is simply danielleosullivan. i'm pretty darn good at updating that thing.
so i've realised that many things i put on my blog tend to be 'blog outfits' where i don't include my absolute every day wear items. so here's a little taste of how i tend to look most days. i could live in jeans and converses. and fun tshirts are just fun. also i'm trying out a new way of telling you what i'm wearing. instead of including it in my word jungle i will make it loud and clear at the top. also will include links to these various garments wherever i can.

so a fair while ago now my mamma bought this top from gorman for a mexican party.
i however thought it was groovy, definitely festive, but worthy of casual every day wear. its tent like shape allows for great airflow. and the colours will certainly draw attention to yourself. the pattern is almost like aboriginal art in the way that it has spots and lines and trees. i dono. i'm no aboriginal art expert, but i'd say this shirt is the perfect hybrid of australian heritage, mexican fiestas, and a bed sheet. mix that with a pair of khaki jeans rolled at the ankles and a pair of overused boots that you will not stop wearing because they remind you of paris, and you're in for a great day.

so on another note, chictopia (the web destination for a feed of fashion bloggers) have recently put a photo of me on their facebook page from my previous post. and i'd just like to tell you that it has 4,954 likes. i mean. what. if i could put numbers in capitols letters i would have. just know that i shouted that at you because i'm excited. seriously. if you've been one of those people, thank you. it has made my life a little better. i must say though, i did lol at some of the comments with people declaring me their new style idol. i mean that's just hilar, as i more than anoyone am on this 'cool quest'. so know that my laughter was only at myself and not at your appreciation for my outfit. i must have done something right to have nearly 5,000 likes... i'm going to stop talking about this now. i don't want to lose my cool factor by having written a whole paragraph on how popular my photo was...yeah.
so thanks. you're all amazing and way cooler than me!

in front of a blue door.









friends.
hello again. and look at my hat.
i love my hat. thank you to dear aunty ricci, uncle mal, and michelle for giving me this hat along with many adorable things on my birthday. thank you also to nona (noni) for giving me this polka dot t-shirt that is ever so spotty and cute. the jacket i got from this little shop in sydney. can't remember the name, but like many things i own, i like it. the skirt is topshop, and i cut off some super thick stockings that i had to create these sock things. they work great because they're tight and you can easily adjust the height. you could also be super cool like me, and let them sit at different heights for that i-don't-care-what-i-look-like-but-i-do kind of look. 
and so the main event. my electric blue metallic scrunchy type jimmy choo clutch. scored this baby in singapore with my family. it seemed the only shopping in singapore was designer, or really not designer. if you know what i mean. it was $1000 or $10. and i had no idea where to go in between. but fortunately many of these luxury brands, like mister choo, were having sales to reach the kind of people like myself. that save up much money to spend and then justify every expensive purchase with a. it being on sale (50% in this instance), and b. being so certain that you can't buy anything like this in baby perth town. so this is how we have blue choo in my arms. i love him, and i think he makes a perfect addition to really any outfit. i'm confident you would agree.

these are a few photos from this restaurant we visited in sydney in surry hills.
it was out of control cool. an awesome blend of modern and old-time art, and super eclectic style. i kiiind of feel that's how my outfit it working also. with the plain cream knit, and the vintage-y lace blouse, then the old gold coloured coin necklace. it's a cocktail of classic and groovy. and, like i do best, it's short to the point that you almost question if i'm wearing pants. but i am. don't worry. i've not yet left the house with no pants. mmm. always manage to bring it back to the length of my garments. which i essentially have full control over, as it's me, conversing with myself here. and that's where i have to tell myself to stop with the word vomit and move on to more relevant topics...
on that note. my jumper is country road, blouse is dolce and gabbana, and necklace is poppy lissiman. i actually bought it for maddy as a birthday present, but i think i secretly bought it for myself. the food here was delish. thanks dave for trying to capture the moment as i made no hesitation to get straight in to eating. rach and i also went to their sister type restaurant called manly wine, in manly. no surprises there. and once again we were swept in to a fantasy world of the past, present and future merged with good food and friendly people. so a great experience over all. one minor detail, however, managed to create a little paranoia for my friends and i, okay, well just me. there were stuffed peacocks on the roof with extravagant tails heading toward diner's heads, and really, it was just. ugh. at one point i noticed the sly thing with it's head turned in my exact direction. and that's when i took deep breaths and told myself it was only fake, and that the chance of it coming alive and swooping by my ears was probably only like, 20%. so things got better. and we ate and were merry. the end.

hiya.
i'm alive. back from travels and back in to uni.
uni. i'm rather over it at this point, so just trying to kick myself and get over this mental block that is preventing me from seeing the end of the year, and rather pushing me in to next year already. so aim is to be really good. you know. try and be amazing so i finish the year feeling great. we'll see how that works out. anyway. this post is more about this groovy outfit i wore one day in sydney. actually it's a slight variation, as i did just put these clothes on to take the photo. something i seem to do too much...i wish i was a real blogger, and had a photographer boyfriend who was interested in what i'm doing and wanting to perfect their photography skills in helping me build a blogging fashion empire. unfortunately i have only my little sister who is too busy doing school work to take photos.
in this case however, i had dave. thanks dave. he even edited them for me. what a guy. so these jeans are sass and bide. i like them a lot. probably one of the better things they've made lately. they have the tendency to create curves, which would be greatly handy if i needed it. they just assist in lifting my derriere higher. it's great i think. also this knit jumper was from some little crazy store in manly and it was crazy. as if that wasn't evident from the rib-cage-esque back.
i'll show some more photos. candid having fun photos. from the trip soon.
i promise one day i'll get better at this. promise.
