like a true hippie.

Outfits,  Spring

in fremantle. wearing mainly vintage. and a jacket that may as well be vintage by now.

 

jacket: Wayne Cooper (from years ago!)
top: Retro Safari
shorts: Vintage and probably need new ones now
shoes: Zomp (awesome sandals just come in)
belt: Tribu (a little old now)
glasses: Colab

so i’m loving the mix of the plaid and the paisley. the colours actually work together great, but regardless, two patterns are always better than one. right. so the other day i ventured over to fremantle with my partener in food and photo crime (on certain occasions) dave. we ate lunch at the raw kitchen, and oh ma godd. holy smokers. i don’t even know how to tell you how my mind is blown by that place. no gluten. no diary. no meat. and nothing is cooked. we ate pizza and nachos. it’s so delish and the salads are full of colourful juicy flavour. so this place is highly recommended, and probably a vegan dream. we carried on to moore & moore. which i’m sure any fremantle cafe goers will know and love. but mainly due to it’s attachment to an art gallery and it’s quirky interior. it’s the kind of cafe that makes you feel cool. like you can pretend you’re a new yorker. just minus a few billion people. the weather was really on and off with the sun. and regardless of my melanin deficiency, i am actually looking forward to those full days of sun when you spend the entire day doing, well, nothing.

to summer’s approach.

isabel marant willow

Outfits,  Spring

 

tshirt: Peter Alexander (mm it’s a pyjama top)
dress: Cameo
belt: Alannah Hill
shoes: Nike (from years ago)

thought I’d dress down this dress by putting a tshirt under it. kind of makes the old sneakers a little less random. got the dress on sale from zara bryson which makes me love it that much more. on the link above you should see it has this bizarre exposed tie thing which i chose to cover with a belt. sort of like it better this way. plus i had major issues with actually tying the thing in any sort of way that actually looked normal. i also got my hair cut again. my intention was to get it a little lighter, then a trim. yeah. officially never getting my hair cut at the hairdressers again. i’ll leave it to mamma. she took about 2 inches off, which is a lot when you’re trying to grow it. i don’t know. sometimes i love it, sometimes i hate it. no. actually that’s a lie. i never haaate it, but certainly long for my old locks. that’s enough about hair. back on to the shoe topic. so these sneakers here are whats circling the fashion world at the mo. well they’re probably beginning to circle out but i have a major love hate relationship with them. there’s something elephant like about them. but somehow cool. like that great blend of dressy and casual. some cheaper versions like this and this also appeal to me. i just don’t know. what do you think?
perhaps our next meeting will be in 2.5 inch comfort.

sequins and stripes

Outfits,  Spring

so hello. i’m wearing a sequin covered jacket. in fact it’s probably more of a cardigan, in which case i think gives it credibility to be worn during the day time, right?

jacket: Miss Brown Vintage
top: Dolce & Gabbana
skirt: Topshop (i think this is it here)
boots: The label has worn off, but they’re from paris so they’re cool
necklace: Poppy Lissiman

i actually bought this for a beautiful friend’s 18th birthday, the theme was sequins. but i mean, really, how cool is it. this was from that vintage store i told you about last post. it was too expensive, but its shine sucked me in and i couldn’t resist. now, my apologies if my speech turns melancholy, or suddenly disinterested. i’m watching the machine gun preacher. probably not the best combination of multi tasking. anyway, this movie totally shows the heart of god and i love it. aaaaanyway. this top was another sweet sale item i got in singapore. i literally made a 1000 dollar saving. what the heck. the skirt i linked you to is the wrong colour i think, but the same skirt. and once again i’m wearing that coin necklace. i literally could wear it with everything. thank you poppy lissiman. my hair is getting longer you may have noticed. i’m actually glad about it. the last couple of weeks i’ve been missing my long hair. at current length however i’m diggin it. what do you think?
perhaps that can be a rhetorical question..

see by chloe

Outfits,  Spring

bonjour. i’m wearing stripes. what is this attachment we hold connecting the french with stripes? it’s so, cool.

 

 

jumper: See by Chloe (pretty much sold out)
top: Country Road
jeans: from Miss Brown Vintage (i like this place. it doesnt smell too much…)
shoes: Converse
bag: Lolla Palooza

as just mentioned, the jeans are from this cute vintage store called miss brown vintage, in the city. it was probably one of the best vintage experiences i’ve had in perth, and that is unfortunately not based on prices, but literally the experience. the workers were deeply interested in what i was trying on, and the store is large with a really great selection of things. they get a lot of clothing imported, and it’s layed out so clearly. you don’t feel like you can’t breath from previously existing mothball-in-closet situations either. so that’s brilliant. also this is a groovy see by chloe number that my mum scored in paris and that i get ample wear out of. i couldn’t find a site that it wasn’t sold out on though, my apologies. these photos were taken in fremantle when i tagged along to my sisters lunch date with her friends. no really. i did. and although i’m not sixteen, somehow the braces and the converses allowed me to pass for it. oh golly. looking forward to the day when i feel my age again, and i will be smiling all over this blog. none of this awkward hiding metal in my mouth photos. there will be real live smiling going on.

until that day, we will have to endure.

love to you all.
