SHARP WISH



Brilliant. 
So I've just finished my Harry Potter movie marathon which i've broken up over a few days so i'm not entirely sure you can call it a marathon- probably more like one of those cross country journeys where they take pit stops along the way to recoup. But non the less it was something I will probably do six to fifteen more times across the span of my life. I'm writing this in a half Australian half British accent because basically I get so involved in books/tv shows/ movies that I actually become a part of the series and I spend a decent amount of my adult time ignoring reality and really committing to a character. It just so happens that my boyfriend has started playing football for Gryffindor (Monash Gryphons) and now I can really push the limits of my character/sanity in the outside world. 

But I'm sure no one is here to talk Harry Potter (if you are we may just be best friends) so i'll get to it. 
I've had this shoot done for quite some time now but part of me hasn't wanted to post it purely for the fact that I wanted to prolong the amount of time it had to be featured. I genuinely adore each and every piece in this outfit especially the blazer. Wowee. Definitely a staple piece for when it's not exactly hot nor cold nor anything in my shitty town of pollution and smog. I paired it with thee comfiest pair of boyfriend jeans I think I will ever have in my possession. They are a little big but I don't even care because they are like wearing distressed denim clouds on my legs. I probably could have done with an extra cuff at the bottom but hey, you win some you lose some. I would definitly contemplate pairing my Zara pointed flats or White Suede kittens with this outfit if I was say, leaving my house. But i'm happy with the mix of laid back comfort and sharp lines.

WEEKEND IN PARIS






So as promised last week, I thought I should skim over why I was away for about a month. Obviously I wont go into gruesome detail despite that being my favourite thing to do when retelling stories. Basically I had to have minor surgery which took me a little longer than I anticipated to recover. As usual my body doesn't pull through when needed too, so what was supposed to be a week out of action turned into a month. And thats about it really. So I spent most days in my pj's watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which come to think about isn't very different from most days anyway. I did get a little stir crazy though. 

As usual these days I'm sticking to a monochrome palette because it's coming up to winter/autumn which by the way is my favourite time of the year. All good things happen in the autumn, including easter and my birthday. 

The quilted coat is curtsy of Motel Rocks and will most certainly be a staple in my wardrobe this winter. I always get compliments on this item when out and about. The tee is also a fav piece. So simple but the material is exquisite. For majority of my years I have been avoiding low cut oversized tee's purely because they weren't flattering with my chest size. But it seems with age and the removal of puppy fat I no longer suffer from unnecessary back pain thanks to my chest. Bonus, I can wear cuts and styles that I've always been afraid to wear. It's a win win really as I never really liked my large chest size! Finally, can we all just take a moment to celebrate this tote. It's absolutely stunning and as I'm slowly turning into a gold gal I have to say that this addition to my bag collection has been a very exciting one. It was gifted to me from my mum for my graduation and I love it more than anything, despite not being able to use it until this weekend. I'm counting down the days. Just lastly, I'm loving the sneakers trend at the moment, mainly because it's so god damn comfy and practical- please stay around for another year at least as I'm not ready to say good by to comfort.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS


Welcome back to me!

In my next post i'll go more in depth into my constant disappearing acts. But for now, i'm safe healthy and still poor. I've got a seriously layered look today with a muscle, a cape and a leather jacket. At first I felt the colour was a bit much as all of a sudden anything but neutrals, black and white make my top lip curl but I'm surprisingly happy with the way this turned out. 

I feel it has a lot to do with the cut of the individual pieces. I actually really love the style of the ciggie muscle. It's long and flowy, the only down fall is the swearing on the front. I no longer feel like a rebellious teen so when I wear it i'm very worried that old grandmas or families are going to be offended. If you had of told me I couldn't wear this tee two years ago for the same reasons I probably would have told you to fuck off there and then. I dunno, call it maturity, call it me trying to get a job as a teacher in a respectable school, call it what ever you want but I am no longer a fan of profanity on clothing. (But this tee is killer shhh).

I have another big thank you to make to Lucy from DGLT Luxe for this one of a kind sun and moon cape. I think it is absolutely adorable and pretty versatile. It's a shame that yellow isn't my colour but this cape is so bloody cute I can ignore that nagging that tells me not to put the colour to close to my face or i'll look washed out. 

I'm still slowly but surely in the process of looking for houses/apartments/shoe boxes in Melbourne but I'm getting pretty down about being stuck in the Valley with nothing to do but lunch at the same cafe or go see a movie in a cinema that hasn't been updated since the late 90's. So I picked up the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and now I'm hooked and my whole life revolves around trying to get rich quick. So back to the drawing board to for me.
