Sheer Silver

wearing: vintage blouse, Mink Pink mini dress, vintage moonstone necklace, Mimco bag and Soles boots (MHQ)

On Friday I had a shoot in Bondi for a future edition of Shop Til You Drop magazine. It's always fun meeting and working with new people and the photographer was very talented so I can't wait to see the shot in print!

Also I wanted to share this sneak peak video of the AW12 collection from one of my favourite labels; Secret Squirrel. If you follow me on twitter you may have noticed that I wore my Botanica Secret Squirrel dress to a wedding yesterday. Very exciting to see new designs from this talented young label from Sydney but take a look for yourself below.



Crime of the Century

wearing: Blazer by Cameo, Jeans by Minkpink (both via MarketHQ), knit top by Lulu and Rose (via Glue), bag by Don't Ask Amanda and Tony Bianco heels.

Let us skip past the rant about this summer rain & chill and focus on how much I love this outfit! In this case, coloured denim is perfect for summer so I bagged these babies in the Market HQ sale and have been wearing them much more often than I suspected. I was over the moon when they arrived because they fit perfectly and are really comfortable. This knit top by Lulu and Rose brings a bit of metallic to the table and not to mention stripes, hello!

These photos were snapped before the heavens opened and now I am snuggled up at home getting ready for a night in with friends, a cold meats & cheese platter along with a good ol 90s flick; The Virgin Suicides. Have a good Australia day to all my national readers! xx




wearing: dress by Somedays Lovin' (via MHQ), belt from topshop, vintage coat and soles shoes.

On friday I attended the MINKPINK tea party. The purpose was to announce MinkPink going global with a global advertising campaign this year! (See the new video here - love it). I tweeted a few instagram photos of the amazing spread of food that was organised for the day but here are some photos from behind the scenes when we were taken for a tour through the new office and showroom. I'm now very excited about the new collections and the winter to come. I've already got my eye on some amazing knits plus that moonstone pendant that I had to resist pocketing then and there!
After the event I had tea with some of the loveliest sydney bloggers then went to visit my Dad's building in the city. The last photo is the view from his office everyday, so high it's breath taking! Hope everyone had nice weekends!



Sun & Sand


These photos were taken on a stunning day at North Avoca beach. My baseball hat is my latest obsession and I can't help but take it to the beach with me too. I've had this belly ring for ages so need a change, thinking of something like this for the new year.
This Lisa Blue cosie is my new favourite for summer as I am always a fan of black and gold. Plus the little whale charm is so sweet! Lisa blue actively supports the protection of our whales & dolphins with a percentage of their net profits going to the Australian Whale Conservation society. So lovely!

muchas gracias

wearing: Somedays Lovin lace dress via MHQ, Lovisa earrings, Rubi slippers, vintage sunglasses and DIY friendship bracelets.

While on my coastal holiday I was lovingly kidnapped by locals Jess and Nicole and taken to this fun location and restaurant 'Rojo Rocket' at Avoca. Cups of tea, an afternoon at the beach and quality time with a couple of coastal chicks was just what the doctor ordered. It's now halfway through summer and as my skin grows darker as does my love for white. I've also been converted to flats and finally got my slipper fix with these black beauties. More photos from my coastal break coming soon.



Tropical Dreams

wearing: Silk dress from an Indo trip, Suboo beach robe, heels by Tony Bianco and Bindis (Christmas gift)

This time of year I always feel an invisible pull towards planning trips and forgetting reality. Luckily, I am taking a little trip up the coast for a week to feed this summer travel monster inside of me. Been having fun with these (butterfly) bindis .. and why not, it's summer! This little silk dress was perfect for a day-to-night outfit. Now time to go read and overload on the suns rays.




wearing: shoes by The Horse, Seventh Wonderland playsuit and vintage sunglasses.

'The Horse' is a wonderful, wholesome label making leather shoes for both "guys and dolls".
The simplicity of these sandals (named Joan) have me excited for summer afternoons and visiting coastal markets while eating fish and chips. Or maybe that's just what I'm looking forward to but these Joans will be my new companions along the way. I picked up this playsuit via My Clothes Horse at a reduced price. Lovely and simple but still classic for a summers day (or night).

p.s. Winner of the Christmas giveaway is Thao! Happy New Year!
