Mono Coco

Breton stripes have been popular in the UK and America ever since the 1950s. With an unmistakable sprinkling of French chic, the pattern is consistently in style. Chanel cruise collection is all about stripes!

I've been meaning to show these really cute outfit combo. I've worn it a few times now and I'm still in love with it....The stripes, bows and black and white tones...very Coco Chanel. The dress on the inside is made of silk and reminds of a 20's flapper dress because of it's dropped waist. The belt i made from pearl beads and silver camellias, it's suppose to be a necklace but i think looks cool worn as a belt.

and ofcourse finished with a bright lip!

Sunny Shades

I look forward to Sundays... the streets are almost deserted and it's that one day that i can feel totally relax before I begin another week. This whole weekend was spent eating and more eating. That and my struggle to finish a few assignments argh!

I'm wearing a vintage dress that reminds me of an amish school uniform meet little house on the prairie..Amish people are cool... love it..so easy to wear and the fabric is this light worn in cotton... cool and oh so so comfortable. I bought it from Beacon's closet in Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago for 10 dollars. What's even more cute are these vintage tortoiseshell Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses that I'm obsessed about. For some reason I feel like some sorta feline cougar lioness animal. I'm so over oversized sunnies!

Northern Lights

Happy Sunday! How funny is Sydney weather, schizophrenic borderline manic to say the least. It's suppose to be spring going into summer...and here I am wearing my boyfriend's jacket to comfort me from the northern winds! There's a bite in the air, yet when the sun shines through pockets of cloud you get this beautiful warmth tingling in your skin. We headed over to North Sydney today to enjoy some awesome jazz performances in the park...and boy they didn't disappoint...as the clouds parted in the late afternoon i was able to lay down and enjoy true spring...ahhh

Dress: Kenneth Cole

Rumble in the Bronx

So i was totally smitten by these shoes when Alix wore them on her blog. I knew Bronx shoes wouldn't be stocked in Sydney so I scoured the net to look for them in my size. Lucky for me, i found them online for $39 so i just had to buy them:) I've been walking in them all this week...they're so comfortable...They're making up for the Acne Niara and Atacoma i never got my mittens on..Beso!

I just like to say how wonderfully cool the blogging community is, I would like to say thank you to all the lovely readers who have sent me emails and sweet nothings this month and yet I have not replied to...big hugs to you darlings:). On a lighter note, a fellow blogger as well as photo classmate Joy has tagged me for "10 things about me"....so here it is....

1. I'm insanely passionate about fashion but sanely enough know where to draw the line. I wouldn't rake up a massive credit bill...I'm definitely an investment buyer.

2. I am not in the fashion industry.....on the contrary health and science... in the process of becoming a midwife. Yes delivering and taking care of babies and being with women :) Having worked in fashion before, I believe at the end of the day it certainly doesn't make me who I am. I love being able to make a significant footprint in other peoples lives by helping women bring their children into this world.

3. I love photography :) I have a secret fantasy of being able to one day see my photos in Vogue Living:)

4. I love architecture. Especially works by Gaudi & Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright to name drop a few.

5. I love food, making it, eating it.

6. I don't see anything wrong with being a nerd. I love books, going to museums, galleries and watching grandma films..

7. I take great pleasure in sitting at home reading a book, watching grand designs, making jewelry or day dream of the Seychelles than going out and getting pissed. Ok so I think i might be allergic to alcohol..

8.I love blogs....very very interesting.

9. I can count my good friends with one hand.

10. Green mangoes are delightful:)
