city that never sleeps

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 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

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.

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!

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 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?

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

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..

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..

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..

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..

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.

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 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'
