Remember to breathe

alvina wears

Nuu + Naan hoodie dyed by me
All over me maxi skirt
ICE high neck crop top
Staccato leather platform boots
Oggi Domani leather satchel bag

As you may be aware already, I always put my hand up for clothes that allow you to breathe and feel almost naked in. I wear this combination to work all the time because it enables me to be rapidly mobile, as my job requires constant moving around and climbing up and down ladders =D. I've been too busy just working, studying and squeezing a social life so I was more than happy to relax with Anna on this day! Hope you all have a productive and relaxing week =D xoxo

Golden time

anna wears

sass & bide tee
dotti skirt
miu miu bracelet
sportsgirl sunnies
kenji wedges

This sequinned tee is perfect for adding that daytime glitz to spruce up your outfit! Paired it with simple black accessories for an easy, sparkly look.

There has been a ridiculously long gap since the last post. To the point where it's strange to see me with such short hair. Makes me want to get a hair cut again, but I know I should stick to growing it out. Decisions decisions!

Baggy Boy

alvina wears

old cap with a personally stitched green foam mat
vintage sheer organza shirt
agent 99 white dress
wittner suede ankle boots
vintage bally rucksack

Due to my carefree spirit and fear of anything restricting, I stay away from clothes that are a little too tailored and tight fitting. So I guess recently I have adopted a more baggy and boyish silhouette. The organza shirt was only $3 at good old Salvos!! Hope you all have a comfy week ;p

Hello again

anna wears

sportsgirl top and necklace
levi jacket
zimmermann skirt
miu miu bag and bracelet
chanel ring
roberto del carlo boots

Hey guys, so sorry for the long absence. It's been almost 3 weeks, although it does feel much longer! So much has been going on in our lives, a lot has been changing, so we got a bit caught up in it all. Hopefully we get a little extra time for blogging, because we really don't like leaving it abandoned for so long!

I bought this top for about $13, which is pretty awesome considering it's perfect for layering, or even as a beach cover-up. I'm also quite stoked that I bought this skirt, because i've worn it countless times, as it's easy and goes with everything. Don't you just love purchases like that? =)

Do It Yourself

alvina wears

nuu + naan hoodie redyed by myself
agent 99 white dress dyed by myself
vintage bally rucksack
wittner ankle boots

I had a hefty amount of dylon dye left over so I decided to practice my prints onto old garments. I have an obsession with metropolises so I had to incorporate it on my print =) If you have any old garments that you feel like you're not wearing lately maybe juice it up with some dye with your own print creations? Have a good week everyone ;p xoxo

Mamma's kitchen is an old favourite of ours since way back in high school. Although management has changed throughout the years, it's always been there for us in times of teenage girl talk, farewells, birthdays and random night outs! As you may have noticed we were not particularly hungry that day and decided to choose healthier options.

Sandwich - I am a huge sucker for anything with grilled cheese melting on top of warm tomatoes. So i'm sure you would have imagine, this dish could not go wrong for me. It's a perfect snack to tease your tummy!

Strawberry white sangria - This was absolutely delicious! Felt very fresh and bubbly, mainly because we were the only customers in there at the time and the girl making it put a lot of effort into it, and it really paid off! She was very friendly and eager to make us a nice drink, which made the whole experience that much better.

A perfect chick drink with a sweet combination of strawberry and tangy white wine.

Salad - This was sort of back when I just started working out and felt really motivated to eat right (although caesar salad isn't really the healthiest choice), so I settled for the salad knowing VERY well that it wouldn't satisfy my hunger. But it was a fail safe option as it's tasty and not a very heavy meal. Nowadays i've given up on restricting my eating and just eat anything I want, but try to balance it out with regular exercise!

The Perfect Gift

alvina wears

bowler hat given by sweet french girl
ted baker printed tee/dress
DIY embellished back pack

I was sick of my back packs getting drenched in the rain and soaking my precious contents!! So I decided to make use of my leftover PVC collection under my bed and turn it into a raincoat for a plain old red back pack. I stitched on bath foam mat pieces for some decoration =). The bowler hat was also given to me on a night out by a French girl I just met and I have adored it ever since <3 Hope you all had an ace week ;p xoxo

Blow me away

anna wears

vintage tee
marcs belt and skirt
chanel ring
house of harlow necklace
wittner wedges

I tend to not wear maxi skirts/dresses a lot, but then what's the point of having one in possession, which is why I decided to wear it out. They are really easy and comfortable to wear, which is always a bonus, but you have to be careful when on escalators, as there is the risk of the skirt getting caught in one of the steps (it happened to me once, although luckily I quickly pulled it out)! Decided to wear it with gold accents, and a hint of purple.

@rusticpearl, @hanahana

Rustic Pearl

Lamb ragu fettuccini w/ olives, spinach & a hint of chilli topped w/ gruyere

It really does look incredibly appetizing as I look back on these photos again, however the pasta was a little bland. It's not to say it wasn't pleasant, but for the price we really could have done a bit better.

rp. b'fast bun ~ Schulz smokehouse bacon loin w/ fried egg, rocket, seeded mustard tomato relish & hollandaise, served in Sonoma French style brioche

This was definitely a bun with a gastro pleasing attitude. The tangy mayo prancing around with the peppered egg, the crunchy tender bacon and rocket was a sure winner to my snack craving belly.


Hana Hana

Hana Hana is a cute, decorative eatery that has a whole array of Japanese style noodles downstairs, with delectable desserts upstairs. The udon/sides were pretty good; extremely cheap so definitely a plus, but it's the dessert I want to talk about. The decor upstairs is an immediate pleasure for the eyes, and then you get to feast on small chocolate delights and sip on creamy, smooth coffee. There's a variety of options, such as crepes, ice cream, waffles etc. in different flavours like chocolate, strawberry, banana...and you pretty much get the gist. I love the chocolate waffle as they have small mochi pieces inside, so you get a chewy texture when you bite into it, with the serving of ice cream and cream on the side! Definitely worth a visit as it in no way harms your wallet, and is an enjoyable experience all round.
