Monochrome

Some people beg to differ but personally I never get tired of wearing black. I don't understand how people can go on and on about how wearing black makes them depressed or bored  or conjour up  all sorts of dark dank and dreary thoughts  . Tell me how can black be depressing? when it's obviously the most flattering shade / "non-colour" .  How can it be boring ? when you can play with shades and contrasting colours for instance how sexy is all black with a red lip ? I  also happen happen to love the mystery which lingers around women in black ! In fact

Black makes me happy.



Top: Bettina Liano


Skirt: Sportgirl


Belt: thrifted


Tights: Ebay


Shoes: Betts


Bow : Diva


Majority of the items in the spread below are from topshop and are BLACK !


Want want want !


Also how cool are these Jeremy scott mickey mouse ( Linda - Farrow) inspired sunnies !


arhhh I want them so bad but will most probably have to resort to the cheaper alternative on http://www.bleudame.com/



and I want these from modcloth , just a tad obsessed with buckles




and while were are at it I would also like this topshop dress and Nastygal sunnies which I have previously mentioned but not in black




So I guess you know I like black hah?

Strokes Me Again !

Here are some photo's of my latest vintage treasure. I absolutely love how sweet this dress is and whats sweeter is it only cost $2


ding ! ding ! ding!





Yesterday was the On the Bright Side Festival which was a good day for many with good music, no rain ( horah ! ) and plenty of eye candy and I am not just talking about the gorgeous lads on stage . Of coarse the music is a big benefit of music festivals but I cannot deny the  fact that my eyes are constantly flittering from one place to the other looking at the fashion hit's and misses, the strange behavior which tends to occur and the security guards trying to contain the crowd surfers, fence jumpers and general Riff Raff .



First things first the music. Of the acts I enjoyed, British electric pop group Hot Chip I only wished their set was a bit longer . Many people may not have been aware but they had a side show of little underagers doing the "shuffle" in their crowd which was also highly entertaining. I also to my surprise enjoyed Art Vs Science, I was never really a  fan previously but they put on a really good show and my god I never realized how good the lead singer was ( both performance and looks wise ) . Last but certainly not least the Strokes were incredibly good and definitely my favorite  of the day , they were electric having myself and they crowd unable to help ourselves from pulsing constantly to the beat . I alsoI tend to agree with Jules comment that girls should be allowed on guys shoulders ,  I mean why not ? "give the band something to see".


Hmm maybe music has the ability to make you instantly better looking ? Think I might dedicate a future post to how good looking the music guru's are .


sooooo pretty !


The Strokes



Art Vs Science



Hot Chip



It's winter here in Perth and it's rather chilly so I had no idea how people could wear so little yesterday it made me feel cold just looking at them . One thing I am not really "into" , which I saw in the masses yesterday was denim hot pants frayed in the worst of area's looking more like unwanted hair than a raw hem.


Personally not a fan




I was digging at the festival:


leather shorts



Socks and various tights










Boots and floral docs !






Personally I wore a jumper , attempting to channel  Cynthia Steffe A/W 10-11






On a finishing note I would really love a pair of nastygals http://www.shopnastygal.com/ spitfire shades !


Also wish I had them yesterday as I forgot my sunnies !

Pastel Desert

Currently spending my last few days in the Pilbara sun , and even though there is not a whole lot to do here except sun bake like a lizard and aimlessly meander about town I can honestly say  I am not looking forward to venturing  back to Perth's record making cold weather . However I am attending the On the Bright Side music festival on Saturday and cannot wait to see the Strokes ! It's good to know that even though Perth doesn't have  Speldour in the grass that we  may still  enjoy some of the incredible talent trekking all the way to Oz for it  , which means I will also finally get to see Black rebel Motorcycle club hallelujah!

Desert snaps from the back garden ...






























Looking through my blog I was quite surprised that I havent shared my love for the photographer Tim Walker. I fell in love with his surrealist inspired and dreamlike photography when I bough my very first Vogue .

Some of the most beautiful imagery I have ever witnessed .








Also a big thank you to  the Mod cloth Blog (http://blog.modcloth.com/) for featuring myself on their blog I am uberly flattered !

Millstream

For the first time in my many visit's to this arid country town( Karratha) , I have actually been shown some of the beauty this town has to offer . The other day my sister and I took my brother and his little friend to a place called millstream which is a completely isolated stream with some beautiful Australian flora and fauna located in the middle of the dessert .


Absolutely breath taking scenery.














Also gimmi gimmi new topshop AW 10 !











Chunky knits , fluid lace, subtle sparkles,a sheep skin cape, hints of leopard print and magnificent shoes. So delightful , only wish that winter was just starting now here in Aus , maybe I can wear it in the air con ?
