need. want. love.

These would all be so perfect right now.



















I have to admit, I like the way Lindsay dresses; she's definitely got it right here. Perfect for summer. It has been incredibly hard finding light, flowy tee dresses that suit my 'hobo chic' style.





Need need need her dress.

rolling in cash, baby.

Repainted my nails in Kit's 'High Roller' and thought they deserved their own post. I was after a slightly softer, more pastel green but this colour is punchy and I like that.
I also like that they stand out from my blonde/brown mop of hair. Nothing like a little contrast.








I'm thinking OPI's 'Get In Lime' for the lighter green I was initially after. Then, maybe a lilac...

spring, i want you back

23 degrees today, but it felt a lot hotter than that. It's almost too late in spring to add a cardigan to the mix. It's too bad; I'm in love with layering a little too much I think.

Sorry for the quality of the first few pictures...they are the result of hurried self portraits and being far too lazy to retake when I realised the settings were askew.

atacoma = <3

My acne atacomas finally arrived in the mail. It was a close call, they almost didn't get delivered! I've been dreaming of these arriving on my doorstep day and night for a week.

I got size 38 but I am really a 39. I couldn't get the bigger size so I decided to take the chance. At first I couldn't even get them on...but with a little leather stretching spray, some patience and a whole lot of pain, they are starting to fit much better.

Who knew I could love a pair of inanimate objects to the point of happily bearing torture?

The number of stares and odd looks was, living in Perth, not surprising. How I long for the day to be somewhere where having a sense of fashion is accepted and celebrated, not ridiculed and out of place.



shoes: acne atacoma. nails: kit 'high roller'.



Even though I just recieved them yesterday, a pic from wheredidugetthat of Jeffrey Campbell Alexa's in ivory made me swoon. I wish I wasn't so broke (and lived in New York but that's another story)!


The ALEXA wedges come in ivory!!!!: on Twitpic

more designers, less credit

Lately in my newfound exploration of fashion and designers, I have broadened my horizons dramatically and have found many other designers which I am already a fan of.
My staples have been Sass & Bide, Mink Pink, Sportsgirl, Forever New, with a few pieces from Maurie and Eve, Seduce, Wish, brands that are common over here.
But with the Australian dollar doing so well against the US, my credit card is in for a hard time...

Society for Rational Dress










Sophomore











Other designers include The Cassette Society, One Teaspoon, Something Else...where have I been for the past few years?*




* oh yeah, I was a tomboy up until the age of about 21.

RIP



So shocking. Beautiful girl.

summer....you're coming up so fast

Even though I love how the Australian summer gets, most of my wardrobe is for winter. Leggings and layering tops (some of which are trans-seasonal) are plentiful; shorts and light, floaty skirts and dresses are not. I'm in need of some summer staples, and I have a long list.
Here's a few pieces I lovelovelove and hope to maybe buy over the coming weeks (or months as my student budget would suggest..)


I have my eye on this sass & bide dress on ebay...
