Status Anxiety - Him + Her

Wallets by Status Anxiety. Luke has Ruben and I have Dakota.

Luke has always been a Status fan and now I also have one to call my own!
I love the bright lime colour that is right on trend and makes me think of summer.

Luke has had his wallet for quite a while now and it is still in top form with some always-welcome-wear that we all love about real leather.

The Dakota is perfect for me as I always need to be organised with a section for cards, coins and a photo section never goes astray. Another in the Status Anxiety collection is a cute 'Phoebe' purse (check it).

If you're looking for Chrissy presents I sincerely suggest Status Anxiety for something that won't break the bank and frankly are much more special than just 'stocking fillers'! See the whole collection here with lots of different colours.



Botanica Moss

wearing: Secret Squirrel 'Gardenia' dress, Shakuhachi bracelet and The Horse 'Betty' shoe.

I've always been a fan of Sydney label Secret Squirrel (remember this post?) and ever since I laid my eyes on the Botanica summer collection I have been dazed by this amazing digital print. Since then this dress has been calling my name and I'm so happy to finally call it my own.

These photos are probably some of my favourite posted on Spin Dizzy Fall so far. Not only does it feature some of my favourite Australian labels but I swear the moss on this rock wall and the print of the dress makes me feel like part of the landscape.
Secret Squirrel are having a Sale Night on Wednesday 30th November at Pigeon Ground Records and Clothing. Best of all the current summer collection Botanica will be all at 30-50% off for one night only so get your butt down there and grab something really special for summer.

I paired the dress with my blue 'Betty' shoes by The Horse (more about The Horse in a future post to come)! Love them!




Braided Chains

wearing: Angels in Chains knit by Marnie Skillings, Tank by Lola vs Harper, Checp Monday jeans, Soles boots (MHQ) and sportsgirl bag.

A part of me is a little happy about this chilly, rainy, Sydney weather that has appeared on the edge of spring because I get to wear my new favourite jumper! I found this Marnie Skillings jumper on My Clothes Horse which is the online store run by the lovely team behind Breakfast With Audrey and I've worn it both days since I got my hands on it.

Yesterday I wore this outfit to interning and the tank by Lola vs Harper was perfect since I wasn't in the mood to wear anything high-waisted and my jumper was a little too cropped to risk the wind and rain. Check out that awesome drape business in the back.

The rain has been nice but I want to spend the weekend at the beach so let the anti-rain-dance begin now!

Samantha Wills Photoshoot on Breakfast With Audrey


Two weeks ago I was invited by the lovely Breakfast With Audrey girls, Tash and Pip, to be involved in a whimsical photo shoot for their Samantha Wills giveaway!
We set off into Centennial Park in Sydney with darling photographer Nicole Cooper of blog Confident Liar. We each styled our own outfits with a vintage twist and teamed them with stunning jewellery from Samantha Wills.

I had the most amazing time skipping around in the bright red tutu skirt from State of Georgia! Also check out that huge collar necklace by Samantha Wills in the first photo. Wowza! is all I have to say about that.

As you know I was the guest editor for Breakfast With Audrey last month so the group shots all in white made me feel like part of the team. I had the best time with these girls that day even if it was 30 degrees!

Breakfast With Audrey have 10 pieces from Samantha Wills to giveaway so enter here for you chance to get your hot little hands on something lovely.

Below: Here's a cheeky goof shot for the road. Hello there!


P.S. The winners of the MIMCOLLECTIVE giveaway are Nicole Barnes and Michelle Elaine!
Congrats to the winners and good news because there is another giveaway planned for this week on SPIN DIZZY FALL!



the beach++

1. wearing: singlet from cotton on, shorts by minkpink via MHQ and vintage Vegas necklace
2. wearing: tank by minkpink, shorts by Somedays Lovin' via MHQ and Seafolly sunnies (R.I.P)
Orange nail polish by revlon.

Ever since I finished reading The Beach a couple of weeks ago I just can't seem to get it out of my head. These outfits weren't really inspired by the book but more reminded me of it and to me just represent an atmosphere of summer and the care-free spirit that often comes with the change in season.

I've also been sunburnt for a couple of days so any excuse not to wear tight clothing suits me fine. I'm in love with the knitted shorts from Somdays Lovin. So much that I think I'll need a back up pair. They remind me 70s beach style.

Back to The Beach, I do still like the film and totally recommend it if you haven't seen it but the book just gives so much more... but also less. Just read that too. Either way Francoise (seen below) is the ultimate summer inspiration character which reminds me to relax more (if that's possible) and that you don't need much to enjoy yourself in summer. I'm also partial to Leo so BAM there he is too.


Hope you all had a nice weekend!



Blogger Breakfast @ The Iconic

Myself with Thu, Jess, Sophia and Nicole.
Pip (BWA), Nicole and myself.
Me, Nick (from the Iconic), Kristal and Hayley.
wearing: Shorts by Shilla, Vintage blouse and watch, 'Emma' necklace from mynamenecklace.com, House of Harlow ring, rubi clogs and Kristal's amazing blazer in the last photos (the wind got a bit chilly on Wednesday!)

On Wednesday morning I attended a Blogger Breakfast set up at The Iconic head quarters.
We were treated to sweets & pre-lunch bubbly while Sarah Gale gave us the low-down on The Iconic and what to expect in the near future.
I'm really looking forward to seeing new things from the Iconic and after a behind the scenes tour of their office I am sure there are excellent plans in the making.

My favourite item presented on the day were the bright green slippers (above).
I am so eager to get my hands on some loafers or slippers for the summer that I've been asking everyone I see with them where they got them from.

It was also a chance to wear my (new) name necklace. I've never had a name necklace and this is a little more exciting than a coke with my name on it!



TONY BIANCO AW12 Blogger Preview

Anthony Bianco and Jess (from Jess Loves Fred)
Some lovely pieces by Vintage Princess were also on display. Loved these cuffs.
wearing: Vintage shirt, skirt and jewellery, soles boots via Market HQ and a friends bag.

On monday night I made my way into the city to attend the bloggers preview of the AW12 collection for Tony Bianco. Little did I know that the man himself, Anthony Bianco would be there to welcome us along with the lovely Jasmin from Friend In Fashion.

When it comes to shoes I seem to be drawn to a lot of black. Practicality or just the industry creeping into my style decisions? Either way I loved the collection because for many of bright or printed design there was a sleek black alternative. Though don't get me wrong, I love the bright heels and snakeskin print too! But take a look at those black heels with the gold detail platform (Yes please!) The dark forest green designs also took my fancy.

Also note the whole new range of boots with all different sized heel and platforms. Being a boot kind of person all the different designs made my eyes water (Yes in a good I-want-I-want kind of way.)
