HARBOUR VIEWS



I have had one of the busiest weeks of 2014 (maybe I have said that a few times this year) but it has seriously felt like I haven't had a second of rest. In between fashion week, internships, school and friends, I've also been running around trying to hunt down a job, and it sure it tricky, i'll tell you that now! However, in between all the stress and adventures, one of my best friends from Tasmania came up to Sydney, and we spent the weekend together shopping, drinking and eating delicious food! It has been so nice to see a friend from home, seeing as it feels like a life time since I have been back to Tasmania. So it gave me a much needed break from my crazy Sydney life. 

We managed to snap these photos on Sunday, before going out for breakfast down by the harbour. It's such an amazing spot, and even better view down there! The weather in Sydney has at last cooled down (thank you weather gods out there!) and now instead of being insanely muggy and hot, it has decided to rain non-stop, but i'm not complaining. How has everyone's week been? Let me know in the comments below x

BIRKS

Ok, I just had a slight heart attack when I stumbled across these new Birkenstocks when browsing net-a-porter.



(Shoes available via net-a-porter.com)

Obviously I felt the need to immediately share these with you. ARE THEY AMAZING, OR ARE THEY AMAZING? Birkenstock would be fools if they didn't make the most out of ugly sandals being cool again, so obviously they tarted up their 'normal' style of Birks, like any money hungry company would. They added floral prints, and some slight adjustments here and there, AND can I get an AMEN to that!?!?!?! How cool are they? I seriously need these on and around my feet at all times! I have a feeling they're going to sell out very quickly, so I must apologise for this post ending abruptly, but I must be off to count my pennies, and make a purchase.....or two!

OVERSIZE

Be it a mammoth burger or a massive flared pair of culottes, it's fair to say that I am digging the oversized look at the moment.

Who out there doesn't love 'super sizing?' You get more bang for your buck, thus equaling more meat, or material, the choice is yours. I was recently scrolling through the Topshop site when I started noticing that everything which caught my eye, was really bold, or really large. Maybe it's just because I know the bigger the item of clothing, the smaller my limb that is poking out will look. That may sound a little funny, BUT IT'S TRUE, and if you have yet to experience this, I highly suggest that you go shopping, and try something massive on (when I say massive, I don't mean size 16) This may end in you looking really funny and laughing at yourself in a dressing room mirror, or actually being quite impressed with the illusion of 'twig legs,' poking from the bottom of your coat.

I always like to say the more the merrier, and that also applies to the size of your dress. So be brave, and experiment. Life is more fun that way.

CARLA ZAMPATTI MBFWA 2014

I was lucky enough to see Carla Zampatti, which was the opening show for Fashion Week Australia. Obviously I was not front row (I was actually standing up the back) but none the less, it was an amazing experience to see my first live show.

A centre row of lights, in a dim room, set the scene for the opening look. Her collection was based around black and white looks, with bright, bold evening wear, adding colour to the collection. Her designs were sleek and simple, but weren't under-done. As you would all know I am addicted to monochrome at the moment, so I obviously loved all the black and white looks. Maybe a few were too girly for my own tastes- particularly the bridal looking white gowns, but I still thought they were pretty darn nice.

My highlight of the show was seeing all the front-rowers. Susie Bubble, Gary Pepper, Margaret Zhang, and loads of other cool ladies amongst the isles. And I must admit, I did get quite excited when I spotted Paula Abdul ;)

COMFORT DRESSING

I have come to that stage of my life where I no longer can deal with itching fabrics and insanely tight jeans, that leave me feeling that if I step too far, I might implode. I was talking to my friend today about how I now loooooooove to be comfortable at all times- I basically want the feeling you have when you wake up in bed, in the morning; insane comfort. Fashion at the moment is all about oversized coats, baggy jeans, track pant style trousers, slip on sandals and loafers, and oversized knits. So, lets take a second to thank the fashion gods for letting us feel at ease whilst maintaining a semi-decent personal image. I don't know how long these fads will last for, but I sure will be taking advantage while I have the chance. Now let's all take a lesson out of MK&A's book, and while you're doing that, let me know what is your ultimate comfort outfit?

JANDALS

So, it has come to my attention for quite some time now, that what may have once been considered a disgustingly ugly shoe, is now in fact very, very, cool. The Birkenstock is back, and I couldn't be happier!







Not only are they insanely comfortable, but they are also perfect for this hideously muggy Sydney weather. You should seriously try walking a few K's in leather boots, it ain't fun, and will most likely end in blisters and tears. Designers are totally embracing the 'slide' and coming up with some pretty awesome looking shoes. I'm so happy that I can now walk easy and my feet will still look pretty (or maybe ugly? Whatever you want to call it) Thoughts?
