I can Fly.

Tshirt - boyfriend's, shorts - Hollister, shoes - Converse, hat - Bonita

Wore this yesterday on a lovely cold 21 degree day, which immediately followed a 40 degree day...go figure Melbourne weather. One of the only places in the world where this is probably a regular occurance. Of course today is a charming 24 or so and is sunny again. Whuuuut?

The boyfriend keeps leaving his t-shirts and socks at my place, but this one t-shirt of his I particularily happen to like. So of course, I took it, washed it (what a mother I am…) and have decided to keep it for a few days before I return it to him. Unfortunately as he is a backpacker, he doesn’t have a whole lotta clothes. So I can’t really steal anything from him permanently.

I haven’t worn converse in ages. I’m such a heels girl, but it’s nice to be able to chuck them on every now and again. However I think it’s high time I got another pair…these ones are so terrible beat up. I had my eye on a yellow pair…they would match my belt nicely…

Went go-karting with the boy, bestie and bestie's friends last night! Was SO much fun, and I ended up being quite the unexpected dark horse, I proved to be a very good defender and came 4th out of the 8 of us! And hey, I was the only girl there. The boy, who's craaazy about cars, was very impressed.

So doing it again.

Shirt - H&M, Jeans - Sass and Bide, Shoes - Charles & Keith, Handbag - North Edsa shopping mall in Manila

I love supermarkets. I love food, I love shopping for food and I'm slowly growing more of a love for cooking as well. Just had a massive cookfest with my friends on the weekend and it was just glorious fun.

Potato pancakes, macaroons and a lot of meat was had over the course of one day.

The boyfriend. Teehee.

My precious pup wanted in too, but we all know how bad chocolate is for dogs...

On a random note about my outfit, the jeans I'm wearing were my first pair of Sass and Bide which I haven't worn in forever and I was just commenting to my mum how you never get jeans at this length anymore. I kinda dig it for summer though.

The Sartorialist

Well I would imagine every Melbourne/Sydney blogger in their right mind is and has probably blogged about this man, but you know what? He is so gorgeous I"m going to do it too!

I happily went down to GPO at about 6pm with my friend, I figured it was too late and that there would probably be a massiiive queue so I probably wouldn't get my book signed, which I had towed along in my bag, just in case. Aaand I was right.

There was a MASSIVE line.

So since I kinda had dinner plans I decided not to wait in line and just admire all the gorgeously dressed people!

And of course. See Scott Schuman. Wow, alliteration anybody?

My gay friend and I gasped.

He is gorgeous. Not at all in a sexual way, but in the most sensual, mature, eloquent way possible.

I am now in belief that all men need to be as well groomed and tailored, or should be. As god damn it looks good. We loved him with the glasses and without. We dubbed his picture pose after his namesake 'The Satorialist'.

But after a bit, we decided since we were in GPO, to poke our noses into the shops.

I had not been into the Acne store yet.

I left with a very big bag.

And a MASSIVE hole in my bank account.

Dress - Forever 21, Shoes - Charles & Keith, Hat - Bonita, Handbag - mall in Manila

What did I get?

I'll show you in the next blog.

But in the meantime, after all the excitement of the Sartorialist, my friend and I went off to Match Bar, one of my favourite bars in Melbourne for dinner and drinks, and to try and pull off 'The Sartorialist' pose.

Oh and some random lady complimented me on my hat! And got awfully jealous when I told her I got it overseas. I tend to do that a lot. It feels good. Teehee.

Topshop vest | Club Monaco t-shirt | mphosis skirt | Aldo shoes

Went out karaoke with some good friends of mine last night, we decided to dress up a little. Unfortunately being in Malaysia I'm restricted to my suitcase, but I decided it was the perfect time to debut my new vest from topshop which I absolutely adore!

Isn't it cute? I can't wait to use it back in Melbourne over everything in summer!

A few days in Malaysia...

Hat - Bonita, Shirt - Uniqlo, Shorts - Aeropostale, Sandals - Charles & Keith

t-shirt - Club Monaco, Dress - Mental, Sandals - Charles & Keith

Tshirt - Topshop, Jeans - Dr Denim, Sandals - Charles & Keith, Bag - Somewhere in North Edsa in Manila..

Sweater - Topshop, Skirt - Hollister, Bag - Somewhere in north Edsa, Necklace - From Greenhills

So I've been in Malaysia the past week or so and actually been pretty good with taking photos of my outfits and things, but I've just been posting them on my chictopia ( instead of here!

I kinda hate how conservative you have to be while in Malaysia, since it's a muslim country and all, it's not usually a good idea to draw too much attention to one's self or show too much skin. I usually let my legs show, but definetly keep the cleavage closed up.

But been shopping a fair bit, did a bunch more today since I took my grandma out on a little day date and bought her a few meals, so in return she helped me with some little purchases! <3

The sandals in the above photos are new from Charles & Keith, I've been needing a pair of sandals for summer back in Australia and these are just PERFECT. I'm going to need to back to a Charles & Keith branch that has them in the darker brown colour...the one in the mall right next to my hotel doesn't have them! I've been trying on other sandals but just nothing meets the comfort level and classy simplicty of these ones.

I am also in love with the new bag, I'm surprised how much I love it as a satchel. I haven't worn any of my bags like that for ages, but it just looks so cute! And hey, it was only like AUD20!

But yes, will certainly be sharing my new purchases quite soon I'm sure. :]
