This time next week I'll be walking the streets of NYC for the very first time. I'm excited...very excited. Meanwhile here are a few photographs i have taken lately...Sorry for the short post. However I've been very busy with work and researching all the cool things to see and do from NYC..YAY!

Loving this portrait of my beautiful friend Lauren. We sit on this grassy knoll at Uni nearly every Thursday for lunch.

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when i went on top of the turrets on the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Lunch with Family....and Nathan's Hungry hands.

Sunday Classic

Happy Sunday! So i woke up this morning very excited to purchase some vintage sunglasses for my friend Anna from Melbourne. When i turned up at her shop....they were gone! The black round vintage Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses that we passed up last! Instead they still had these blue ones.... They were the last pair...and i knew they were too good to pass up. So i made my photographs in black and white to pay homage to "the one that got away"...

P.S This design by Karl Lagerfeld reminds me so so much of the Chanel round sunglasses worn by a certain Olsen Twin.

I keep coming back to you...

I made this mood board two weeks ago and i love how it has everything i have an interest in. Old pictures I've taken, my favourite photographs, flowers, wallpaper...Everytime i look at it, i always seem to find something new. How chic is that photo of Jackie O? She's so effortless...

Two months ago, i said i was undergoing a revamp of our workspace, just like to say it's coming along. I hung the Guy Warren screen print, bought a peaceful white orchid and arranged our books and mags oh so chic-ly...voila!

My fetish with stripes photo by the Sarorialist

Lastly this is my favourite photo taken by the Sartorialist. She looks at peace, wild, carefree. I love it even more because she's guessed it.. stripes.

Oh Mr Lagerfeld!

I had the funnest weekend! Filled with shopping trips, eating, relaxing and museum hopping. Friends Loz and Anna came up from Melbourne, I took Anna around to some of my fave shopping destinations here in Sydney such as Paddington, Rozelle, Balmain and Bondi Junction. Along the way we both had fashion discoveries. The first was meeting a gentleman by the name of Charlie Middleton in Paddington Markets, Charlie makes italian lambskin leather clutches from vintage frames using old school techniques. I got the caramel buttery soft clutch and Anna got the black pebble...please check him out, there's only a limited number of clutches...once it's gone he won't be making them anymore.

The second discovery would be my ultimate fave buy of the year!! BIG CALL. I found these vintage Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses! There so so Fabulous! I'm so glad i didn't pass these up ( I was about to) They remind me of the Chanel collections going on...round frames, beautiful tortoiseshell, muted gold finishes, made in france. What's great about them is that they've never been worn, i found them brand new! Stored in some old lady's attic. I have a few, thinking of selling a couple. email me if you want to make an offer.

Sunny 16

For anybody who knows a thing or two about photography would understand the principle of Sunny 16. For the rest of us, it basically creates happy pictures. Sydney has been blessed with beautiful weather .... sunny days, clear skies, crisp air. Perfect for saturday shoot with my photography class and an excuse to wear my happy pink new Marni ballerina!

These girls were having such a good time in Hyde Park playing frisbee. Not very Winter?huh

He's in my class and wearing a cool grey blazer

How sweet are these lipstick pink patent Marni ballerina flats.....Delicious!

Unfortunately i was trying to break them in and managed to gain a few blisters...good thing i had my old loafers to save the day....not too pretty but oh so comfy.
