parisien pin up

Spring,  Styling

 

hello great people.
so finally, approximately 1 million years later, here are the photos from the shoot that chantal and i did with maddy. it was a lot of fun, and i think, a brilliant result. maddy just looks gorgeous, and channy did a great job of the hair and makeup. this time around i was the photographer/stylist. i quite like styling. you would expect so. there was no real direction for this shoot, but after chan did the hair and makeup i kind of decided the outfits. i guess you could say i was going for paris meets pin up 50’s meets 2012. i think it kind of worked. either way the photos are super. super cool. i do hope you like them, and if you like chan’s makeup you can find more of her stuff here.

Outfits,  Spring

 

jacket: Amber and Thomas
tshirt: Antipodium (blue version here)
jeans: Claude Maus
belt: Peter Lang
boots: Beau Coops (find them here)
bag: Lolla Palooza
neckalce: Poppy Lissiman

 

these boots were a little purchase i made while out with Dave the other day. i find it so hard to resist a sale. but I’d been saving so i felt like i deserved it. although i was saving for something far more significant than a pair of boots. then again, a great pair of boots can become a huge part of your life. so at the end of the day it was worth it. i think i need to do a little post on things that i am wanting right now, and that includes a few pairs of boots. i still feel like i’m searching for that perfect shoe. you need the right flat shoe, the right heel, the right boot, and the right lace up shoe. and i’m still on the quest, you know. maybe it’s never ending. in fact i hope it’s never ending, as it validates consistent shoe shopping for the rest of your life. so here’s to never finding ‘the one’. may we shop forever and find momentary happiness in these beautiful things. such as tshirts that don’t quite fit the mould, like this knitted thing. and jewellery made from coins. and high waisted jeans.

hi. so there was a great part of my friday. i went to the city and caught up with my friend dave, and we ate great food and took photos as the day turned goregously sunny. firstly was sushi at aisuru in northbridge. i love firstly how black and white the space is, but also how they include trendy new flavours in to the sushi that make it a crafty blend of modern and traditional jap. this was followed by some photos in alleyways and other curious spaces (thank you, david). and finished with some chai and cookie at venn. a place i’d heard of but never been to. it’s a crazy hybrid empire of homewares, food, drink and art, which really impressed me. above you can see me instagramming a photo. something i seem to be brilliant at. instagram. if you’re interested, my user name is simply danielleosullivan. i’m pretty darn good at updating that thing.
so i’ve realised that many things i put on my blog tend to be ‘blog outfits’ where i don’t include my absolute every day wear items. so here’s a little taste of how i tend to look most days. i could live in jeans and converses. and fun tshirts are just fun. also i’m trying out a new way of telling you what i’m wearing. instead of including it in my word jungle i will make it loud and clear at the top. also will include links to these various garments wherever i can.

mexican tent shirt

Autumn,  Outfits,  Winter

 

top: Gorman
pants: Miss Shop
boots: Paris somewhere

so a fair while ago now my mamma bought this top from gorman for a mexican party. i however thought it was groovy, definitely festive, but worthy of casual every day wear. its tent like shape allows for great airflow. and the colours will certainly draw attention to yourself. the pattern is almost like aboriginal art in the way that it has spots and lines and trees. i dono. i’m no aboriginal art expert, but i’d say this shirt is the perfect hybrid of australian heritage, mexican fiestas, and a bed sheet. mix that with a pair of khaki jeans rolled at the ankles and a pair of overused boots that you will not stop wearing because they remind you of paris, and you’re in for a great day.
so on another note, chictopia (the web destination for a feed of fashion bloggers) have recently put a photo of me on their facebook page from my previous post. and i’d just like to tell you that it has 4,954 likes. i mean. what. if i could put numbers in capitols letters i would have. just know that i shouted that at you because i’m excited. seriously. if you’ve been one of those people, thank you. it has made my life a little better. i must say though, i did lol at some of the comments with people declaring me their new style idol. i mean that’s just hilar, as i more than anoyone am on this ‘cool quest’. so know that my laughter was only at myself and not at your appreciation for my outfit. i must have done something right to have nearly 5,000 likes… i’m going to stop talking about this now. i don’t want to lose my cool factor by having written a whole paragraph on how popular my photo was…yeah.

so thanks. you’re all amazing and way cooler than me!
