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..
