M. #7

So i have not had any inspiration to blog lately (possibly due to my lack of motivation for almost everything). Even so, I had to think of something to blog about before a-nomalous is completely dominated by C!

Once upon a time, film cameras were the only way to capture our most memorable moments. Now, it has seemingly become a trend to ditch even the digital cameras and switch to a Digital SLR. I have recently upgraded to my very own DSLR, a Canon EOS 600D. Not being much of a tech savvy person myself, it is supposedly a great camera for what you might call a DSLR noob. I haven't taken any shots yet but hopefully a long weekend away to the Central Coast will give me that opportunity! Fingers crossed for some decent weather.

Lover Serpent Lace Dress

WANT. I honestly can't afford it since I recently acquired the AWang Rocco. Also, I really can't justify spending that much on a dress that I probably won't get much wear out of. As much as I love it and didn't want to take it off my body in the change room, I should spend that money on something more practical. If only this dress was in store before my 21st.... 

I seem to be taking over this blog with all my posts. M where are you?

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag with Rose Gold Hardware

Say hello to my new baby! I've been lusting after this bag for a while now and have been tossing up between getting it in black with brass hardware or rose gold hardware. After much deliberation I decided on the rose gold but was informed by the staff at Alexander Wang that it was no longer in production. I was pretty devastated and almost purchased it with brass hardware before I came across it on Barneys

The bag itself is not as heavy as I expected and the rose gold cupcake studs works very well with the black pebbled leather. For anyone else interested, Barneys also stocks the latte coloured Rocco with rose gold hardware.

Brunch at Bar Indigo Double Bay

Zara shirt, ASOS leather skirt, Chanel flats and MiuMiu bag
My sister in fahrenheit top and maxi skirt, Sportsgirl necklace and Chanel bag
Eel skin bag from Love & Luck

Had Sunday afternoon brunch with my sister at Bar Indigo in Double Bay. It's my favourite brunch destination and the breakfast bruschetta is absolutely the best! Whilst shopping in Bondi Junction Westfield, I picked up a fuchsia eel skin clutch from Love and Luck, located where the emerging designer markets are. It's a perfect size and there's a strap included too... I just love the colour !

Minty Meets Munt shirt, Lover shorts, Unknown cardigan, Ferragamo shoes, YSL clutch 

Today consisted of a fail study session at my local library and a nice long dinner and dessert with J, where we talked about people we would or would not date. I find that whenever I go to restaurants I always order the same dishes. Say for tonight, we had Thai and as usual we ordered our default chicken pad see yew and massaman beef curry. I'm not sure why we never order anything different, maybe it's because we don't like to deviate from the norm. The waffles with strawberry and white chocolate was delish but I think the ones we make at M's house comes pretty damn close - ice magic does the trick. 

Anyways, I've been on a hunt for nice comfortable flats for everyday and was advised by a customer yesterday to try Bloch ballet flats. I've read lots of positive reviews on Bloch from Vogue but never had the time to physically go to a Bloch store to try it. Hopefully they will have the right shade of nude when I eventually decide to pay it a visit...

My friend, Winnie with a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and watch

Zara top, Vintage silk shorts, Sportsgirl espadrille wedges and Fendi cuff

Jimmy Choo satchel bag 
Headed to Coogee beach for lunch after uni with some friends. My outfit was inspired by colour blocking which I though would be perfect with my new espadrille wedges. The wedges are surprisingly comfortable but I think I should invest in a few more flat sandals for Summer, can't seem to find anything nice at the moment though. The weather outlook for the week looks really good, which means more sunshine and opportunities to start wearing new additions to my Spring/Summer wardrobe!

Unif top, Karen Walker pants, Ellery x Graz sunglasses, Melissa shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs tote, YSL ring

This week has been way too overwhelming with presentations and exams none stop. I'm glad that it's over but unfortunately for me, it will be like this again in a few weeks time. 

Last week was Vogue Fashion Night Out and I participated by watching customers drink complimentary champagne and munch on canapes by Aria. I was quite disappointed because I couldn't shop around and had work instead. However, the highlight of my night was meeting Margaret from Shine by Three, it was lovely having chat with her. 

On a side note, the much anticipated ASOS Australia has landed! It's essentially the same site but prices are in AUD and there are free returns for Aussie customers!

American Apparel Sweater, Zipia Dress & Shoes, Make Believe Necklace, Miu Miu Bracelet, Miu Miu Bag

Had a food-filled day yesterday. Went to the Fish markets with M & C for lunch (not pictured) then headed to The Rocks for an early dinner with J at Sake. The food was pretty good, I particularly liked the Chirashi salad which was a nice combination of sashimi, noodles, egg and tempura. Dessert is a must have for me, especially during winter so we headed to Bay Vista at Brighton Le Sands for icecream and drinks. Excuse the slightly blurry outfit photo, it was extremely windy when the picture was taken.

M. #4 Think pink!

I'm not normally a lipstick person but i've recently discovered my obsession with them. The collection of YSL colours has impressed me the most with all the shades of pink and orange, making a perfect statement for Spring/Summer. After trying on a couple of colours from the Rouge Pur Couture and Rouge Volupte ranges, i settled for #7 Le Fuschia from the RPC range. It seemed a little too bright and bold at first but i'm really starting to like it!

This is what my monthly pay goes towards. Should really learn to save but it's so hard when there's pretty things screaming "buy me!" whenever I walk into a shop. I also have the tendency to buy things that are one size bigger - this mainly happens when I'm at a sale and only the bigger sizes are left. I don't want to walk out empty handed so I end up purchasing a bigger size and hope that miraculously it will fit well on my body or that I can wear it oversized and look cool.

Happy first day of Spring! Waiting for warmer weather so I can wear shorts and skirts and pretty dresses. I've already started updating my spring/summer wardrobe, will definitely be stocking up on a few sheer blouses and colourful pleated skirts for spring. Will do a post on my recent purchases soon! 

Hopefully by summer, the big ugly bruise on my leg will have disappeared!
