Baked Apricot

Before I share some rather important news, here are some photo's of one of my favourite apricot coloured skirt taken in the boiling heat we have been experiencing ! 
I really love a statement colour in an outfit and love how this particular shade compliments creamy tones as well as my pink pastel clogs. 










It's only natural that  with every piece of good news there a slight fall back . 

First of all I will be heading on an exciting trip to India for 2 weeks, where I will be helping out doing some missionary work. 

I am so excited as well as incredibly nervous ! I have always had a fascination with India, however if I were to purely go on holiday there I think I would be overwhelmed with guilt therefore  I am very glad that I can experience India whilst giving something back.

I will then be spending 5 days in Singapore where I will hopefully recover, catch up with a few of my friends AND visit topshop and zara two stores I am deprived of living  in Perth . 
Lets just hope I will be in the mood for shopping after India. 

The bad news is that the trip may stunt future blog posts whilst I am there, however I will try and post as regularly as I can!

Also if you have not already taken a look at the latest wildfox shoot  ( Spring 2011 lookbook) you better it's 
seriously amazing ! 


Thats only two of many more amazing shots !

Rosy

First of all for all of those who voted for me in the sportsgirl superstylist competition I wanted to say a huge thank you as I am one of the 5 finalist to be judged by Kym Ellery, Anouk Colantoni and Michelle Jank . 

I am so thrilled to have made it this far have a look here to see the other amazing finalists ! 

Just a quick post today I must study for my final exam on wednesday horah ! 

As my internship is coming to an end I thought I would share some images I stumbled across the other day of the wonderful floral garlands in the vintage store 








This was also  myself and Ellery's  favourite photo from when I was the webstore model. 
These suede shorts are phenomenal ! 

Photos taken by the lovely Thom 

My entire internship has been a priceless experience which I am sure I will miss when it's over !

Sundays

Sundays are definitely one of my favourite days . 

It usually consists of a little sleep in , a nice breakfast and then a trip to the markets . 
My sister and I always go to the Subiaco markets for fresh fruit, snacks and flowers.

There is also an amazing jewlery store where I purchased my favourite pendant and a few little pop up stalls which have become regular pit stops in between buying the very reasonable fresh produce. 

The white layered skirt in the outfit post below was actually one I picked up from a little thrift stall there.   















Dream catcher - Sportsgirl
Pendant -Markets Jewelry stall
 Hat- Dotti
Top- Ally
Skirt- Markets
Socks- Sportsgirl
Shoes- Marcusb (zomp)

Here are some of my market snaps.  
I love how they are so colourful which reflects the atmosphere you encounter when there. 


I am a real sucker for flowers, I  buy myself a bunch each week because I enjoy the added life they give my room and of coarse the fact that they are so incredibly beautiful!

This week I had to grab some sunflowers 












 Such amazing jewelry if you live in Perth definitely have a visit .

Lipstick on your ...

I have an unhealthy obsession with collars and have noticed that so many of my shirts with the prettiest collars are  hardly ever worn. 

So to solve this dilemma I have started chopping my collars off and wearing them with various outfits. 
I won't lie I was very inspired by Miu Miu before I began this creative venture which has been a great solution to my problem.

The outfit below features a collar which was from a large nighty styled top which I bought in an op shop and I never wore. 
 I felt like the size of Africa in that top and the fabric also had me sweltering but I did love the collar and I can safely say that the top gets more wear now as a collar than it ever did as a top. 





Collar- DIY & thrifted
Top- Bettina Liano
Lace shorts - Valleygirl
Socks- Alana Hill
Shoes- Jeffery Campbell
Bow - Forever New
Broach- Myer

I also received a lovely email notifying me of Kate Moss's new range for Topshop

These are a few of my favourites :










Velvet shorts amazing .
