VG dress, vintage faux fur, Jeffrey Campbell wedges via ModCloth

I miss summer. Wish I could go back to the days when my teeth wouldn't start to chatter the moment I dragged myself out of bed.

Finals are still dragging on and on. Urrggh... this time next week though, it'll be all over. Already making plans hehe...

the only exception

June 13, 2010

Ebay blazer, mesh corset available here, Hudson jeans, Country Road bag, Wildrose heels

Jessica was kind enough to send me this incredible pair of Hudson jeans recently. I'm amazed at how comfy they are, skinny without being restrictive like almost every other pair I own. The quality is pretty stunning too, they feel super soft even though they been treated with a wash. I would definitely recommend investing in a pair of these! (you can check out Hudson on their website, facebook or twitter for more)

I have finals coming up in the next few weeks so I probably won't be able to update here as often anymore - but I will do my best! Thank you for all the comments guys x

switch it up

June 10, 2010

As promised, the results from day we did a little role reversal and I shot some photos of my man instead.

I think I actually prefer being behind the lens rather than in front of it to be honest. So much more fun being able to direct everything.

figment of your imagination

June 6, 2010

Country Road shirt & bag, Topshop leather jacket, shorts & clogs, Glassons socks

I initially only liked this jacket when I first saw it but as it always turns out, after trying it on, I fell for it pretty badly. Certainly didn't budget for it that month, but it was appealing enough that eating bread and water for the next few weeks was doable for me. Can honestly say it was worth it haha!

I was ultra surprised when Carolina emailed to say that I was one of the finalists in the Bloglovin + competition (Thank you!) Would love it if you guys could vote for me here =)

optical illusional

June 2, 2010

'So Unusual' dress from ModCloth, Just Jeans leather jacket, Christopher Kane x Topshop heels, Topshop rucksack

Love the way this dress creates the illusion of a waist and curves in all the right places. Doesn't hurt that it comes in my all-time favourite colour either.
