well, here’s something you don’t see every day.
me, in joggers. you see, i’ve always had this weird mindset when it comes to joggers. i’ve just never liked the way they looked. so much so that i only wore converses for so many years of my school sporting life! but, since everyone has been wearing groovy nikes and looking, well, groovy, i have decided to attempt this groove. i found these
groovy good looking sneakers at the Stella McCartney for Adidas store in miami. if i had known at that stage how much money was in my bank account, i probably wouldn’t have walked out with them. nevertheless, i was naive and wi-fi-less, so they are here and they are on my feet. i guess they are pretty sporty. like, i will wear them running (one day) but i somehow feel like the colour and the pattern makes them that much more fashion-y, and therefore acceptable for normal non-sport wear. i think i need to give this sport-chic look another go, in those times when i want to put on the old faithful all stars! but they are particularly more supported / bouncy / comfortable than my converses! those are my thoughts.
to doing things you never thought you would (even if it is only in relation to footwear)…
hello from the music side of the world (blog)!
i just wanted to share with you guys a little something that has been happening with my new band ZOLA. a few months ago now, i was asked to join this groovy new christian band. it’s been such a good time getting to play music together and to work on the recording of ZOLA’s debut EP. i wanted to let you know where you can listen/purchase and enjoy some new music. this is the website:
it’s always interesting being a part of a new band. it’s funny how dynamics can change, and personalities and come through or be withdrawn. at the moment captain chris is at the forefront of writing the tunes, and we basically jam them out to a point we feel they could be recorded and played live. but it’s still so fresh and new for me (especially considering i have been away over a month! yikes!) and i am excited to let you know how our writing process is going and what new music we have coming up! anyway, enjoy and please let me know what you think!

well hello there!
it has been quite some time since my last post. i have been galavanting around on holiday. there are so many great things that i have seen on my travels and places and people that i experienced. new york was just plain cool. (also literally.) i’ve never had to dress for -11 degrees before. and for a perth-livin gal like me, winter coats aren’t something we tend to stock up on. so let me guide you through a day of getting dressed… you would need some sort of long sleeve top for extra insulation under your blouse, then a jumper over the top with a potential jacket, and once you had decided you looked cute in whatever combination you could make out of your already worn clothing, you put the same coat /scarf / beanie combo over the top every day, and therefore looked the same as you did the past 2 weeks! it was definitely an experience. one that i’d like to have again! i will do a whole post on my trip soon with picos and everything.
this dress i got from the urban outfitters store. it wasn’t on sale when i bought it, but it is now on the website. cool hey. love it when they happens. anyway it’s a plus for any of you lovely folk hoping to purchase. i love the shoestring strap back, and obviously, the leopard. i think it’s groovy how versatile this kind of dress is. if i were wearing heels it would suddenly become a more slinky night time extravaganza, but i like the cool dude vibe it gives with the converse. add a little zebra striped belt and a brand new miu miu bag and you’re pretty much ready to go anywhere. but seriously. how awesome is my new bag. (on sale. soho.)
i’ll be posting pics of all my purchases soon. yay! i love them!
