city that never sleeps

2010-06-02T21:37:14.333-07:00

starbucks and bagels every morning. walking from one end of manhattan to the other. subways at midnight. opening ceremony, blue & cream, h&m, topshop, barney's coop. underground bars lit by candlelight. clubs filled with beautiful people. burritos from street vendors at 2am. bleeker street. harlem late at night. russian food at brighton beach. invite to nyc shrek premier. 24 hour diners. pinkberry. 5th avenue shopping. comedy clubs and pina coladas.

1 & 2: central park. 3: chelsea. 4: brooklyn guy i met who showed me around for a day. 5: near times square. 6: made friends with a couple of awesome german guys. 7: brooklyn beach. 8: times square. 9: subway at night. 10: speaks for itself..



Despite being there for three weeks, I didn't take many photos. I instead focussed on immersing myself in the culture, rather than taking pictures of it.
I didn't do any of the tourist things..i didn't even see the statue of liberty!

New york was as amazing as i always imagined it to be. I have already decided to go for a three month working holiday at the beginning of next year..its the closest i can come to actually moving there.

My only regret? Being asked to be in a music video for a well known r&b artist and having to decline as i was leaving that day..that would have been amazing.

I had promised myself only to buy a few good things while there..it was hard but i came home with something i've wanted for a long time.

Alexander wang rocco duffle. Vintage scarf from store in the east village. cuff i found hanging on a pole in chelsea. pink ray bans. leopard shirt dress from h&m. limited edition brooklyn absolut vodka. 'new york in a box' from MOMA.

All i can think about is ways to get back to new york city as soon as i can...i think i've fallen in love.




new york

2010-05-03T15:28:08.430-07:00

i'm currently in melbourne airport, drinking coffee and sitting in a sun dappled windowsill. in a few hours i will be boarding my flight to los angeles, then onto new york. i have to admit, i'm scared. being alone in such a place, so different to my small hometown, is very daunting. but this is what i've been dreaming of since i was 16.

(image)



hopefully with the abundance of free wifi around the city i will be able to post whilst away...
otherwise, see you all when i get back!



lover

2010-04-28T04:39:19.976-07:00

there is a boutique here in perth by the name of subway dc. i used to have the wrong idea about this store; would never set foot in there. one day i decided to see what all the fuss was about and was instantly hooked. i never realised within its walls were most of my favourite labels.
like lover.

there was a massive sale there the other day, which was housed in an empty store in the city. had i not passed by on one of my random walks i would never have known about it.

i walked out with a blouse from lover's 2008 collection, electric ladyland. Originally priced at $400, i got this baby for around 70% off.

It is two sizes too big for me, but i couldn't say no! i'm quite fond of the oversized feel, anyhow..

and a little something i also picked up on sale...

my new favourite piece of clothing

2010-04-16T03:05:19.273-07:00

....is this shift dress from forever new. I cannot tell you how long i've been searching for the perfect little tunic dress, with loose sleeves, isn't tight down the bottom and is not too long (or too short)!
I went in with the intention of looking for a grey skirt, and wanting to make the experience as painless as possible. On my way out, next to the door, there it was. I literally gasped out loud. I knew straight away it was the one.

Don't you love when you see a piece of clothing and just know you need it in your life?



rainy

2010-04-12T01:38:56.004-07:00

today is the first day this year (minus the massive storm a few weeks ago of course) that it has been truly cold and rainy. Usually this would sadden me but this time i leapt out of bed with the sound of raindrops and my first thoughts were:
'ooo what coat should i wear today? tights maybe? boots, hurrah!'

after a few outfit changes i settled on something simple. i'll save the heavy layering, combat boots and scarf goodness for when it starts getting really cold.

dress: cotton on. cardi: witchery. boots: cassette society.



polka dots are quite cheery, wouldn't you say?
i've been thinking about colouring my hair, but i have no idea what to do...i guess this mop will have to stay until i decide.



odds and ends

2010-04-08T06:58:15.448-07:00

been quite busy with work, uni, and organising my trip to new york, which is less than a month away. i've actually found it very hard to save all my money. it made me realise just how much i spend on clothes and accessories, something a struggling student should not do!

seeing as i haven't posted for awhile, i thought this post could be my week in picture form...

part une: items i have a serious lust issue with..


(image)

(image)

(image)



i would kill for these tristan blair leopard booties. Literally murder someone. Ok, maybe not that far but i'd consider selling my soul.

part deux: today's outfit..


(image)

(image)
shirt dress: dotti. scarf: forever new. tights: sportsgirl.



a simple, thrown together outfit for rushing out the door. it felt so good to be wearing a scarf...i love autumn.

part trois: purchases..


(image)

(image)

(image)

(image)
drape cardigan: witchery



pictured here with a long satin top and acne wedges. i like to plan ways to wear pieces, although all that ever happens is a mad rush of throwing clothes everywhere trying to find something that matches.

and i swear, the cardi was all i bought this week! although even with that small purchase i felt a little guilty for my NY piggy bank..



reptilian

2010-03-29T01:51:38.172-07:00

if you haven't guessed already, one of my favourite designers is sass & bide. girly but edgy, it is one label where almost every piece i own, want or must have.


(image)

(image)

(image)

dress and vest: sass & bide.



The dress i got on sale. The vest...well, i tell myself it is an investment piece. $490 for a vest?? insane...yet i swear it was calling me from it's place proudly displayed on a wall. 'come on...you know you wanna take me home.'
i have to admit, the thing is pretty crazy, what with it's ruffles and studs. but i love it.

another thing i've been rocking lately is pink PINK lips. a little pretty, a little whorish, digging it.

bloom 'foxtrot'




why hello there.

2010-03-24T02:06:49.757-07:00

my favourite shoes.
obviously not as awesome as the Chloe susans, but the closest i could get.
makes me feel like a cowboy! in the best way possible.

todays outfit! nice and simple...seeing as this hot weather refuses to let up.


(image)

(image)



as the colour in my hair fades out, i've been left with more and more blonde. yesterday a woman asked me if this was my natural hair colour. i would have thought (by the regrowth and the plain fact it is odd coloured) that the answer is obvious? but if people want to think i'm some sort of 'exotic european' (in her words), then hey, i'm digging it.

2010-03-17T19:57:41.603-07:00

they came in the mail..!!

I woke up as soon as i heard the courier pull up at my front door, hurriedly got dressed and paraded around admiring my feet.
This explains why i look half asleep in these pictures, and also why they are a little blurry (hehe!)

These are a size 8.5 yet are a little tight on my feet...i will eternally curse whoever i inherited wide set toes from! A lot of walking and stretching is in order before i leave for america...



backless

2010-03-12T04:58:17.627-08:00

it's still so hot being outside is an ordeal, let alone wearing anything. at least i can depend on my trusty backless dress to keep me feeling cool (in both ways, of course..!)

viktor & rolf flowerbomb. various nailpolishes. bloom lipstick & loreal blush. etsy locket. sass & bide leopard swing top.



i don't actually own any foundation or powder. lately this has seemed more and more odd to me. i don't even know how to correctly apply either product! but I hardly see the point when my skin is clear enough as it is.

even though i'm saving every penny i have for new york, i 'forgot' my promise not to buy anything unneccessary and, after weeks of daily ebay scouring, managed to get my hands on a new pair of see by chloe studded combat boots. love love love these. and the way i see it, a must have item to take to ny with me.

dedicated post to follow..!

I've been tagged by the lovely soph of owl vs. dove with the sportsgirl summer badge. How long has this been doing the rounds?? It's autumn, people!

What are you wearing right now?
Black rats and a polo tee with the slogan 'grab your west australian' printed on the back. Yes, i just got home from work.

What are your fave piece/s of clothing from the Sportsgirl summer collections?
I'm going to change it up here seeing as it's no longer summer and post my faves from the current collection.


(image)



Post a picture that means "summer" to you.

What tracks are essential on your summer playlist?
Tracks to chill out to. Ministry of Sound Chillout Sessions is perfect.

Describe your perfect summer:
Road trips south, coffee and banana toffee tarts in mellow cafes, vodka and cranberry at friends' backyard parties, night swims at the beach.

My Sowat wing ring came in the mail... and in the cutest packaging! It was too good not to share.

never ending summer.

2010-02-23T03:27:09.173-08:00

Thirty six degrees again today, towards the end of summer. I'm starting to ache for heavy coats, woollen tights and layers, layers, layers.

i love the pink, even though it's not a basic colour i feel it will go with everything in my wardrobe.
i've never been quite so in love with an inanimate but oh so well crafted object before..

I am a sucker for all things whimsical. This ring which i have ordered from sowat paris is nothing short of that. I fell hard for this piece of jewellery and what it represents to me, as well as its look of rustic mixed with sweetness, exactly my style when it comes to rings.

Loving right now

2010-02-07T08:07:25.493-08:00

I really need to make the effort to post more often. I've been meaning to do a few posts on a few special things i've recieved over the past few weeks...including the new love of my life (hint: she's pink buttery leather goodness) and a ring i have been coveting for quite a while. I'm in the process of purchasing a cheaper dslr (i used to have a 450d but had to sell to buy my macbook air; well worth it), which means outfit posts will be more frequent.

For now, some of the things i've recently been lusting over...

First post of the year

2010-01-05T02:27:41.190-08:00

I haven't updated for more than two weeks; life had gotten in the way i suppose. My christmas was, to say the least, quite lonely. I spent the day on my own watching episodes of my favourite show, and unwrapping the presents I had bought for my cat. New years was better, a random party where i met loads of new people.

The best thing about this part of the year though, is undoubtably the boxing day sales. Although totally broke, I managed to buy a few sass & bide pieces along with a few staples from forever new. Can't wait to head over to Melbourne later this year and be able to step into an actual s&b boutique..

The weather has been constantly nearing forty degrees and this has made it impossible to live in anything but loose, floaty tops and skirts. I try to avoid the uniform of tee and shorts that most girls seem to permanently live in and try to put my own twist into my outfits.

top: sass & bide. skirt: forever new. leather bandeaux: lucky 13. flats: midas.



The last picture is to show the detail of this delicately beaded high waisted skirt, and to be honest, i wish i could pull off this look without seeming like a hooker..
