♥ This photo:
♥ This outfit of Annie Spandex's. And Annie Spandex in general.
♥ This dress, which got a bashing on Go Fug Yourself but I am totally crushing on it:
♥ This song! I've always loved Emiliana Torrini but it is great to hear a song that is more upbeat and not so beautifully melancholy.
♥ The idea of owning a pair of pink patent Doc Marten boots. They are number one on my wish list right now (along with a pair of nude-coloured heels).
♥ Season 1 of Skins - and everything Cassie wears, ever. Although I probably won't be able to watch About a Boy again without feeling wrong.
♥ The latest issue of Russh.
Is there anything you're obsessed with at the moment?
p.s - more outfit posts to come soon, I promise!
I got tagged by the lovely AUS style for an award! Isn't it gorgeous?
This is also one of my favourites. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favourite books as a kid, and the original movie is also high on my list! If I saw anyone wearing this I would pretty much beg them to marry me. It is awesome.
All of these plus more drool-inducing pieces can be found at Indygrrrl's Etsy store. I really hope you check it out, she seems spectacularly nice and makes pretty pieces as well, what more could you want?
♥ Dress: Cotton On
♥ Jacket: Alice in the Eve
♥ Tights: Now legwear
♥ Shoes: Miss Shop from Myer
I think it would have been a good idea to break in the shoes before I wore them! They were SO INCREDIBLY PAINFUL by the end of the night, by about 10:00 I was whimpering and looking around for a chair. This morning I woke up to something not unlike this:
Also, to any Perth people, I thought I would mention the HUGE Subway DC sale, happening at 824 Hay St, opposite His Majesty's Theatre. I had a look on Friday, and it had brands like Zimmerman, Cohet et Sabine, Stolen Girlfriend's Club and Kate Hurst, with nothing over $100! Sadly that was still too much for this poor arts student so go and spend up for me!
Tea, my Wii Fit, new shoes, winter clothes, The IT Crowd, and Mad Men.
My green floral op-shop dress, a long snuggly cardigan, and black tights.
Do you nap a lot?
I don't really nap, but I do get to sleep in quite late a few days a week (the upside of being an arts student and unemployed!).
It's the birthday of two people I love very much - my dad and one of my best friends!
Burlesque dancing, speak fluent French, be able to design and make clothes, and be an excellent chef.
Something from Outback Jack's, where I'm going for my friend's birthday.
What are you listening to right now?
What is your favorite weather?
Rainy! I love winter weather.
A very 60's-inspired lamp, some magazines (Cleo and Shop Til You Drop), my glasses, about three glasses half-full of water, and some change.
Trying to get a job! Damn you financial crisis!
I would love to live in Paris. Or perhaps London. Or, since the house is fully furnished and paid for, maybe I would just get it here so I would still be near everyone I love! No, I think Paris.
My friends and family, my boyfriend, my laptop, enough money to buy a magazine and a coffee, and a good pair of shoes!
A ticket to Russell Brand tomorrow night! I was DEVASTATED when I couldn't go!
What would you like to get rid of?
The sinking, "Ihavewaytoomuchtogetdone" feeling...
Life, Law and Not Enough Shoes, which is an autobiography of a female lawyer in Perth. It's more interesting than I made it sound :P I would recommend it!
English, a teeny weeny bit of French.
Fluent French and Japanese.
I always wanted to be a journalist, but for some reason lately I have been thinking of doing a teaching degree? But I haven't made up my mind yet.
Moving in a few weeks! :D
p.s If you've left a comment in my last post, I am very grateful! If not, it would help me out A LOT and I would be eternally grateful if you did :)
For a while I've been thinking of the direction that I would like this blog to go in. When I started it I thought of it more as a fashion blog, but I guess if you're writing in something quite frequently, it's hard not to let your "real life" creep into it!
I remember Em saying that her blog was a personal journal of sorts, and I think that is kind of the thing I would eventually like to achieve. But! You are the people reading, so if you wouldn't mind providing some feedback I would be eternally grateful!
♥ more article-type posts (like this, or this)?
♥ less posts about "style icons"?
♥ more or less stuff about my life?
♥ interviews with bloggers & other inspiring people?
♥ more photos?
♥ more "Bits & Pieces" posts?
♥ more of my Etsy picks?
♥ reviews of brands, movies, books etc?
Please let me know in the comments, that would be awesome! Even something like "Don't change anything" or "I like this stuff" would be extremely helpful.
My very favourite song from my favourite Irish band (sorry, U2).
I like to celebrate the way I celebrate every holiday...
I hope you have a fanatstic day and indluge in some Guiness... maybe? I've never tried it, which will probably get me kicked out of my family.
The weather was meant to cool down today (it was 37C yesterday) but it was still humid. After a minor freak-out about what to wear, I decided on this dress because it's comfortable, flattering and the skirt does a cool flippy thing if you twirl about (which I do).
♥ Dress - Valleygirl
♥ Shoes - Rubi (need to be replaced)
♥ Ring - Diva
I kind of feel like I'm in a bit of a style rut at the moment, probably because it's a funny, in-between-seasons time so I have no idea what to wear. Also, I am sick of everything in my closet and attempting to downsize it before I move.
Also, Boy & I went to see Watchmen on the weekend and it was INCREDIBLE! Seriously, all those reviews weren't joking when they called it the best superhero movie of all time. I would, however, recommend reading the novel first if you can. Now, I could either bore you with a review and Watchmen fandom, OR I could show you this!
Watchmen cupcakes! Hello, awesome.x
