i had fun editing these photos. i kind of feel like life would be more romantic if we saw everything in pink and blue. for those of you who use photo shop, this edit is using some of nirimi’s actions from the colour shop (i used candy). and for those of you who are unfamiliar with nirimi’s work, make yourself familiar. she’s beautiful. speaking of great photographers, i just recently did a little shoot with rachel claire that i can’t wait to see. she really is so sweet and her work is stunning. now on to the topic of the clothing. this dress is my sisters (thanks mad) that i have not actually worn anywhere. but it makes for a cute outfit and some great photos. and these shoes i scored on sale in singapore. i love them. and realised i have no close up of them, but can you see the mini gold love heart cut outs all over them. it’s darn cute. so in other news, i’m working on a new blog. and in case you couldn’t tell from my frequent prolonged absences, i’m not the greatest at keeping this baby updated. however my master plan for next year is to launch this new blog that is a super hybrid of some very important things in my life. and considering i will no longer be studying, i will have time. so watch this space for a cool new exciting music and fashion and food and everything cool (as cool as i can be) update.

yesterday bella and i visited the city. we went to that cool new bit called brookfield place. it’s pretty cool and new. some awesome cafes/bars/restaurants. and i definitely didn’t feel like i was in perth anymore. so well done perth city. well done. you’re crawling out of your shell. while in the city we went to rummage in northbridge. and to be honest after walking for about 10 minutes in 27 degress and boots i was actually, kind of, over heating. i know. it’s pathetic, but i really need to start conditioning myself for this warmer weather. don’t let my fake tan fool you. the sun and i aren’t exactly pals. anyway. this is probably the thousandth time i’ve mentioned the fairness of my skin on the this blog. it’s not like i have an issue with it or anything… by the way. how cool is my dad that i can wear his clothes. i think i’m going to do a feature on my dad soon. just coz he definitely dresses like a 52 year old man should. in fact. he dresses kind of like a 22 year old ‘man’ should. next post: what i’m wearing to my gig at the ellington tonight. should be a little fancy ;)

dressed to kill

Outfits,  Spring

bought this shirt in singapore and came home to soon realise that i was, in fact, on the trend money with givenchy’s line of t.shirts and jumpers displaying various vicious animal heads.


jacket: Topshop
t.shirt: some store on Haji Lane
shorts: Vintage
shoes: Converse
bag: Pigeonhole

i will assume given you’re on this site that you do enjoy the occasional fashion blog, and if you follow anyone like the blonde saladjak and jiltuula etc, you will notice quite a presence of givenchy’s rather confrontingly (not a real word) frightening prints, or kenzo’s colourful african take on the wild animal. or perhaps you’ve seen kanye or liv displaying their givenchy roar. well, i’m a fan of the trend. i sort of did it by accident, in which case i may at some stage actually delve a little deeper and get myself a shirt of the kind. but the truth is, until i start earning proper money i won’t be buying any proper clothing, and certainly not of the givenchy persuasion. but one day. yes. one day. i’m also attempting a trend that probably a year or so ago i would have confessed was a sin. double denim. but i actually sort of love it. i dono. maybe i didn’t nail it this time around, but i certainly tried. and i really need some new shoes. i mean how many times will i wear my converses. actually. probably forever. but i at least need another option. you see i was going shopping this day, and i am always stumped when it comes to footwear for shopping. it’s like you want to look good, but you also want to walk at a good enough pace and maintain balance. you know? so. first step. money. second step. shoes. i’d say life tends to run in somewhat of a similar order. perhaps add food and we have satisfaction.
