Angelic Bite

Dress - Picked up from SM Mall in Manila, Scarf - Alexander McQueen, Jacket - White Suede, Boots - Zara

Just a quick change before I dashed out to go to the gym today. I've been wanting to wear this dress for a while actually, but whenever I ended up putting it on it never felt 'right', as much as I do love it. I find myself wearing it a lot during summer, so I suppose it's been a little too cool for it.

Today though was ridiculously sunny and lovely, so a pretty dress was in order I think.

Man It Up

Shirt - Country Road, Jeans - Dr Denim, Jacket - Max Mara, Belt - From Manila, Boots - Zara

Not feeling so beautiful today so kept it simple.

Grrrrr baby...

My Catwalk

Arrggh, I've been running around the stockists of Maurice and Eve in Melbourne trying to find this dress to try on and alas, I have not yet been successful.

And alas, there it is online. Where I can't try it on before I consider getting it. Sigh. Times like these I wish I was definitely a size 6 and everything looked amazing on me.

Ah well. Time to turn on my detective shopping goggles on and hunt around those boutiques a little harder!

Something at the hipster...

I find myself with a random craving a draw string bag I can wear across my body, that gently bounces off my hip as I saunter around in my Dr Denims.

Whilst Witchery, Mimco and Oroton all have quite adorable ones that I saw while out and about, I'm not so keen to be spending $200 on a bag at the moment. But they're just so cute.

Top - Picked up in Hong Kong years ago, Skirt - Hollister, Shoes - Tony Bianco, Bag - Chanel, Scarf - Alexander McQueen

Oh dear I'm making sleepy eyes in that first photo.

Today whilst browsing an adorable op shop (I'm not usually fond of op shops but this one actually had really nice stuff), the shopkeeper said hi to me and then gave me a go over and said I looked great. Hmm. Really something about getting changed in 5 minutes that works for me at the moment.

Also discovered a totally adorable and HUGE vintage store on Smith st, with surprisingly reasonable prices (dresses for $35? yes please!) which I certainly plan to go back and ransack one of these days....

The past two days I've been getting some lovely things in the mail. The first of which is the beautiful scarf I'm wearing, which I bought off from ebay. I bought it on Monday, it was in my house on Tuesday. I am absolutely smitten with it.

I thought it would make a lovely alternative to my black scarf with white skulls that I've been completely whoring out.

I also just got my new Silver Spartans from blackmilk clothing today as well! I went up a size to large, which fit my thighs and hips much better, but unfortunately get a little bit looser around the ankle than I'd like. But not too badly I suppose at least.

I plan to get better pictures of these babies soon, as I was too lazy to get shoes that matched, but my brother commented on how I look like a super hero.

So looking forward to wearing these to go karaoke in on Friday!

Blog + life = ...?

The most lovely Soul Princess, posed me a question on one of my blog posts recently which I thought was quite interesting...and since I don't really feel like working I'll take a bit of time out to comment...

"Hi girl:)
I have a challenge for you...

How much does your online, and blogging life interact with your real life?
Is it a big part of it?
Is it really separate?
Or is your blog a mechanism to improve your real life or your business?

I will answer mine tomorrow:)

Have a great evening :)sp"

I think this question has come at an interesting time for me, as I find myself actively blogging more than ever and really enjoying the time that I do spend on it.

When I first started, it was due to me really starting to get into fashion and trying to involve myself more with the fashion world, being more creative with my outfits, what not. So through the internet, I stumbled on to fashion blogs. And I found it absolutely fascinating. But I found it quite a tiring thought to have to take the time to take photos and document what you're wearing etc. I gave it a try anyway, as some of my friends had commented on loving my clothes and my outfits (although I haven't actually shown many of them this blog) so it seemed like a good idea.

I was a very sporadic uploader and was pretty pathetic at doing it regularly. I think I was in a situation where I felt silly taking pictures of myself and was in the mindset that I wouldn't be popular enough for anyone to look at my blog.

But overtime and maybe with the starting of my second blog, one based on food, imsohungree, blogging started to become a thing I enjoyed personally. I used to write diaries as a child, and on deviantart used to write fairly long journal posts about how I was feeling or saying what I did during the day etc. So once blogging started to become something enjoyable and almost a habit, I started becoming far more regular. I really enjoy the time out from writing emails or thinking that I always need to be working to find pretty things, reflect a bit about food, share what I am wearing and even if no one is reading, at least I'm getting a point of view out there somewhere on the internet. Blogging is something for me to enjoy.

Nowadays how much is it a part of my life? I think it's actually become a fairly significant aspect, well not that important, but it does crop up a fair bit in my thoughts. Since I have the food blog, I make the effort to go out and try new places more often and be adventurous with my food, which leads me to reading more foodblogs and articles about restaurants to find out what's going on in the restaurant-sphere. Same thing can be said about my clothes, I think nowadays I try to wear something different almost everyday, so that in case I end up taking pictures for the blog, I have something different to put up! I get a bit nervous when I wear the same outfit twice now!

And I suppose, since I do make the effort to try and wear new things, I push myself slightly out of my comfort zone and force myself to pretend I'm confident in whatever I'm wearing!

So I suppose from that point of view, blogging is something that's improved my life, made me invest a little more time in myself, made me work a little bit on my self esteem and really helped me find a love of food!

Now if I could somehow transfer this from hobby to a career....

Two and Twenty...

Sorry I haven't been updating much guys! Life has been chasing up with me what not what not...

Oh and I turned 22 yesterday!

Had a very quiet celebration at home with my mother, aunt, brother and some of my favourite guys (Dad and grandma are off overseas). Sushi, cake, macarons and some Disney movies, what more could a girl (woman?) want? Although I am having a wild bash on Friday...

My mum and I got called sisters recently....this photo makes me understand why a little more...

Not very fashion related but...

This is Mitch.

Mitch has trouble finding pants that fit and absolutely hates brushing his teeth.

And this is Wayne.

Wayne regards himself as a good listener but his attention has been known to wander.

I think these guys are some of the most adorable plushies I've seen in a while.

Want to meet more? Make your way to the Monster Factory....

Underground Saints

I have to wonder why I've never explored the Degraves St underground section.

It's so darn cool!

I initially popped down to look for a zine I was recommended which talked about the differences between macarons and macaroons (the foodie in me loves this stuff), but I also remembered that there was a jewelery store I had heard about, but never gotten around to visiting.

Corky Saint Clair, is just adorable. Whilst carrying adorable, cartoon-esque necklaces, quirky and whimsical cufflinks that belong to their label, the store also has some other amazing designers.

Corky Saint Clair's stuff though, is so reasonably priced, I'm thinking of going back tomorrow and picking up a couple of pieces for myself...

It's a karaoke octopus! Too good!

They also have some Victoria Mason pieces which I quite liked....

And there were these great necklaces with cast hearts and livers, but along with Victoria Mason, they were a wee bit out of my price range...

Check out Corky Saint Clair's website here and see the rest of their stuff hey?

And his name was...MEOW.

Top - White Verve, Skirt - Hollister, Jacket - Anne Klein, Boots - Zara, Scarf - from Tokyo

Managed to find a bit of time the other day to pop into a few of my sometimes-discount-stores, which I just realised I absolutely miss doing. I just haven't had time to get into shops and browse through racks of clothing and look and feel clothing in my hands.

Online shopping is glorious fun, but there's nothing like actually getting out into the shops. Although this day there wasn't anything in the stores, I was told by one of the shopkeepers that I looked great, which I found quite random, as I literally dressed in 5 minutes. Just one of those perfect outfit days?

And yes, I have been absolutely whoring out this scarf to high heaven lately, but it just seems to match everything. Makes me really think I should invest in an Alexander McQueen one...

Oh and check out this ring that I did find in a store on Rathdowne St, I saw it in the window and just had to have it. Bit of a steal at $18 I think?

Bit of this and that...

Dress - Cantão, Jacket - Decjuba, Shoes - Tony Bianco, Belt - MNG, Bag - Bally, Hat - Bonita, Scarf - From Tokyo

Oh, I love that winter's coming in, who doesn't love donning on a cute jacket and boots? Haven't worn this jacket for ages so thought I'd pull it out instead of wearing the typical Melbourne uniform of black and more black.

Borrowed mum's bag as well, I'm really thinking I need to get myself a nice mid-size handbag for going out for dinner...maybe time to see what Witchery's got in...
