Short but Sweet

marcs blouse
cameo skirt
sportsgirl sunnies
kenji wedges

I love this skirt so much! It's such a sweet little thing, with the flare detail and gorgeous lime colour. Although it's ridiculously short, if I lengthen the straps by adding extra material, or just take them off altogether, i'm sure I will get a lot of use out of it. There's already a bunch of ideas in my mind on how to wear it come Winter, especially as tights/stockings will detract from its shortness. Here I am feeling a little unsure, standing in the middle of a huge football field wearing it, but really when you step out of the house in items such as this, it's best to wear it with confidence!

On another note, I joined the gym today, and found it to be quite fun. Although i'm not usually one for New Year resolutions, I feel it's time to start afresh and live a healthier, happier lifestyle by eating right and exercising. But really, I had decided on the gym in the middle of last year, so the start of 2013 is just an excuse to make it a more meaningful reason to start getting fit. It's all new to me, and I suppose anything that's new is exciting, but hopefully I keep this momentum up and go on a regular basis! Hope all your resolutions are going well if you made any =)

I like a girl with short short skirt & a looooong jacket

alvina wears

jil sander trench
something else x ken done kaftan worn as tee
lee denim shorts
staccato calf leather boots

For some reason I feel the most comfortable in the combination mentioned in the title above =D (which is also a very catchy tune). Makes me feel snug, comfy and feminine =D It had been a little chilly here for "Spring", but we did get some sunshine soon! Peace out and have a lovely weekend xoxo

Kitty flats

anna wears

marcs shirt
subtitled jacket
milkandhoney pants
charlotte olympia kitty flats
vintage oroton bag
sportsgirl sunnies

It's been a while since i've welcomed these gorgeous shoes into my wardrobe, but here they are now, making their first appearance on the blog. They're just one of those items that immediately spruce up any outfit, and are so easy to wear. Paired with an otherwise pretty simple look of white shirt and printed pants, and a light jacket over the top as it was a little chilly. Have an amazing week everyone!

Princess Leia

alvina wears

top and skirt made by self
aldo pumps
stellino cuff
mazal ring

Work had a Star Wars theme and since I had no costume, I spun up a princess Leia-esque top and matching bottoms. I actually quite like wearing it a lot lately because being in all white feels strangely like i'm cleansed and pure haha! Anyways, may the force be with you all this week =D xoxo

Chicken pad see ew

Pad see ew can pretty much never go wrong, and this one did not really disappoint either. So then it just comes down to whether it was good enough to get again, but unfortunately it just wasn't that great. You also have to factor in the price, which was a bit high compared to other Thai places, so I probably won't be back again for a while. We both had very similar opinions regarding this place. Also, apologies for the blurry photo.. it was quite dark in the restaurant!

Chicken cashew stir fry

I guess because i've tried so many Thai places this year, this one didn't really stand out for me. Not that there was anything wrong with the dish in particular, but i've had nicer in terms of flavour and quality of the chicken n veggies. This place was actually part of the pricier range for Thai, which i don't think was worth the money but still good =).

Shimmy Shimmy

alvina wears

vintage embroidered jacket
tee made by self
lee denim shorts
staccato calf boots
country road patent leather bag

As you might be aware by now, i'm a lover of vintage goods! I find it's the best because you definitely get the quality for more than half less retail price. My vintage jacket was only $29! It was of very good fabric with special patterns embroidered on, giving it that shimmy shimmy. Whereas if I went to the mall, for $29 the best I could have gotten was a crappy mass produced trend piece. Anyways, hope you all have a lovely week =)) xoxo

anna wears

marcs dress
princess polly necklace
christian louboutin heels

Happy New Year everyone! Although it's a little late, hope everyone has had a safe and memorable Christmas, and great start to the new year! We couldn't do our usual Xmas tradition of going to The Winery, which was a bit disappointing, and it also means no Christmas outfits for last year =( However, this outfit has a subtle festive vibe, with the white and sparkles, so it will have to make-do as the Christmas look for 2012!

Don't know why I thought it was even remotely sane to walk through here with these shoes on. Having an incredibly thin heel makes it really difficult to walk in in the first place, let alone on these wooden planks with gaps wider than the heel i'm walking in! Crazy idea. I could barely stand for a minute, but still, the atmosphere of the evening was amazing, and coupled with the gradually pink sky and sparkling lights, my mood could not be dampened.

There's a slight shimmer to this dress, but the camera has failed to capture any of it which is a bit disappointing. I think that's what made it quite special. Also I think i'm in the middle of a love affair with white dresses, or even just white for that matter. Could it be the warmer temperatures, and the start of Summer nights...
