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..

jumper: Country Road
shirt: Dolce and Gabbana
necklace: Poppy Lissiman

 

these are a few photos from this restaurant we visited in sydney in surry hills. it was out of control cool. an awesome blend of modern and old-time art, and super eclectic style. i kiiind of feel that’s how my outfit it working also. with the plain cream knit, and the vintage-y lace blouse, then the old gold coloured coin necklace. it’s a cocktail of classic and groovy. and, like i do best, it’s short to the point that you almost question if i’m wearing pants. but i am. don’t worry. i’ve not yet left the house with no pants. mmm. always manage to bring it back to the length of my garments. which i essentially have full control over, as it’s me, conversing with myself here. and that’s where i have to tell myself to stop with the word vomit and move on to more relevant topics…
on that note. my jumper is country road, blouse is dolce and gabbana, and necklace is poppy lissiman. i actually bought it for maddy as a birthday present, but i think i secretly bought it for myself. the food here was delish. thanks dave for trying to capture the moment as i made no hesitation to get straight in to eating. rach and i also went to their sister type restaurant called manly wine, in manly. no surprises there. and once again we were swept in to a fantasy world of the past, present and future merged with good food and friendly people. so a great experience over all. one minor detail, however, managed to create a little paranoia for my friends and i, okay, well just me. there were stuffed peacocks on the roof with extravagant tails heading toward diner’s heads, and really, it was just. ugh. at one point i noticed the sly thing with it’s head turned in my exact direction. and that’s when i took deep breaths and told myself it was only fake, and that the chance of it coming alive and swooping by my ears was probably only like, 20%. so things got better. and we ate and were merry. the end.

This winter we are taking a far more sensible approach to the death-prone 7 inch stilettos we rocked last summer, and are coming out with some beautiful creations with just as much beauty and still illuding to long sexy legs. Paired with thigh high socks and an oversized blouse is almost perfection. If all goes to plan, soon you will see me in that vision proudly wearing a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s of my own (which I have only seemed to find online here in Perth.. hmph. We have some catching up to do WA!) Enjoy being long-legged, and on top of the world in somewhat of a literal sense.
