the big w jeans make their second [bog] appearance. impressive for $10. they have served me well, unlike some others. remember my boyfriend-ish jeans from a couple of posts ago? well, they totally ripped like crazy to the point of no repair, and i had to return them. i was so disappointed because i so liked them, and i am now left with a light, distressed, nicely tapered, boyfriend jean shaped hole in my heart. so let the search recommence. i will keep you informed on my findings. back to this current post – it was definitely something a little different for me. i think my best intentions were totally there, but somehow the execution just wasn’t great. really to the point that i probably will never wear this ensemble again in this exact state. this could also be partly due to the state of my hair this day. it was pretty dirty. like, pretty dirty. but you do the best with what you can, and that was it.
to conclude, i don’t think it was a complete disaster, but definitely a good trial run. i think i was kind of going for that cool street style at Paris fashion week sort of thing (in my backyard) kind of like this or this. i know, it’s nothing like either. but at least i didn’t look like this. in saying this, i do quite like myself a bit of kim kardashian style, so for redemptions sake, a photo of kim doing all white beautifully. i’ll be back to revise this look at some stage. in the meantime, plenty of colour.

bought this new skirt the other day (after not a lot of convincing, but a fair amount of latter regret) which i really quite love. i thought it was a pair of shorts at first, but it just has an adorable pleat at the front giving it that appearance. a huge plus side to this garment is it’s length at the back. it is fairly mini at the front, but the back is what justifies it! i also actually really love this t-shirt i got from the supre discount store. it’s a joke in there. honestly i am finding myself all these bargains on simple items and all the rip-off designer garments that you will ever need, but then, you get to the counter and it’s had a further reduction! it’s out of control.
now, on the topic of hair. i have gone back brunette. i know i’m boring, but i am more comfortable this way. i still have intentions of lightening to some sort of olivia palermo/lilly collins colour/cut perfection. i think however, i will wait for new york and find a super trendy stylist to give me the change i’ve always wanted. or maybe, i’ll face facts, and my unrealistic hair expectations. maybe it’s like my dream-like fascination with new york, and my hair will never be as great as i desire, because, well, it’s my hair! also, makeup post coming up soon with super cool awesome video to watch (great for the oily skin peeps).
So, currently in London and loving it. Been here the last couple of days seeing some of my family and spending time shopping and eating with one of my favourite people, Rachel. She flew over from Ireland after she rudely left me in Australia for the last 6 months and the last couple of days with her were awesome.
wearing: Oh My Love sheer, star top and Japonica dress (topshop). Jonak (paris) lace up boots. YSL navy, leather belt (second hand from paris). Nars dragon girl lipstick.
I’ll be back in Australia in a couple of days. Have mixed feelings about that, but living without my bed and Charlie is quite difficult. Until next time friends…
