boots: ASOS (not online anymore, but awesome options here)
so i’ve been trying to find the right pair of distressed boyfriend jeans for a while, and to be honest i didn’t really move that far out if my comfort zone – they’re still pretty tight where it counts. but the point of the bf jean is to not be fitted right? well, i guess it would really depend on the pant size of your boyfriend. as much as they would double my length, i think jordan’s jeans would be fairly tight on me? anyway. i don’t care if i’m following the rules correctly or not, coz these jeans are da bomb. only thing is, i accidentally put my foot in the whole and managed to really gash out the rip. my knee cap is now totally on display, and i’m feeling the draft moving further up my leg. contemplating stitching it back up.
these boots i totally dig, and when i went to share them with you i realised they’re no longer on the website! sozzle gals, i really was hoping they would be there because they kept going on sale. but they’re the coolest boots for adding height without going to dressy or anything. i like that the heel is so chunky that you don’t notice it so much. one thing you may have noticed however, is the colour of my hair. i had it lightened, and it honestly went a lot lighter/blonder than i had originally planned, but i don’t mind it. i mean, it’s just hair right? well that’s what i’m trying to tell myself. i’d like to be a lot more adventurous with my hair, and i think this is a start! and in saying all this, i think i will revert back to a little more brunette soon. how boring.
recently bought myself one of those tran-seasonal dresses. and, well i like it.
dress: Poppy Lissiman
coat: Ruby Sees All
boots: Topshop (alternatives here or here)
this dress when not on actually looks like a big rectangle with these large triangles attatched to each side. kind of like a rocket. then you wrap the launch pad triangles and wrap them up, and ta-da. you have a super cute fited dress. i think the idea is groovy, as well as the pattern. the dress is totally adaptable to each season so i’m pretty pleased with the purchase. also, it would seem that i am not in new york. i am still here in perth. the trip has been delayed for anyone wondering. official departure date is dec 26th. i’m going to da snowwww. i’m excited. also excited about my new blog. its nearly done! working away as we speak.

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.
