Oh how I love this weather! The mercury is hovering between 19-21 (degrees celsius), the sun occasionally playing peek-a-boo and there’s just enough wind to give you runway hair and make your skirt flutter. When I was dressing this morning I knew I wanted a nice dramatic look either monotone or colour block. Well actually, I just had to choose between my new bi-colour tights or raspberry tights and build a look around it. I eventually settled on bi-colour!

I was going to go on a rant about how much I hate shopping but for the sake of not being hounded down by denim legging wearers I have to refrain. Anyway the weather has been very TYPICAL Melbourne here in for the last week; it was freezing cold mon-fri and suddenly the sun decided to put on an impromptu show and warm us up for the weekend! Which made is so hard to get dressed on saturday morning, imaging what it would be like not to have to wear 80 denier tights under my skirt but I managed ;)

Skirt: My own design

I decided to ‘forgive-those-who-have-wronged-blistered-us-in-the-past’ and wear those jellies again… Why do adorable things cause so much pain like puppies who pee in expensive shoes, headbands that give you bruises behind your ear and ‘fun pens’ that run out JUST as you start the best paragraph of an essay?
Do any of you watch NYC prep? I thought I’d give it a go since Gossip Girl’s taking a week off. I love this whole fake drama thing, there’s really nothing better to make you momentarily forget about the shit going on in your own life! And Sebastian’s adorable, his French skills and pervy dad totally trumps over man bangs on GG. Nate archi-who?

Hey ASABers and ASABettes. I’m so wrapped up in school work I’ve barely had any time to rest let alone design or seek materials for a nice blog post so I thought, why not combine the 2?! One of the things I’ve been occupied with is my semester 1 art final (well it’s not a ‘final’ but it’s a major piece). It’s a cubism inspired mix media piece, here’s a little snippet of one of my explorations (but not the final).
Stay tuned for more and I promise as soon as the flow of homework lessens I’ll do a few outfit posts and post some designs!

Going up to Mount Dandenong on a public holiday is fast becoming my family’s favourite tradition. The drive up is always fun and so refreshing to be surrounded by endless rows of trees instead of houses and the view from up on top is stunningly scenic, especially on a nice clear day (even though, we’ve been up there on an overcast day and it’s still spectacular). Not to mention how much I love shopping for antiques and rare little gems up in the little towns of Olinda and Sassafrass, sadly this time we were too exhausted to bother searching for parking. I long to just stay at a spa or even a homely B&B and just absorb the tranquility (ok maybe not during bushfire season)…
Ok, pan down a little and you’ll see I’m hiding something hugely sinful… Oh yeah, flip flops, because of recent complications with a foot injury I’ve been ordered to wear sandals or flip flops. To me, flip flops are like uggs, indoor only or maybe under certain conditions like at the beach or snow (for uggs).
For those who haven’t yet seen my mum…
Hope your easter long weekends were great and (getting a little preachy here) sadly I didn’t get to go any easter services because of my busy schedule and guests staying with us so for the religious ones among us “‘Christ the Lord is risen to-day,’ Sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.” Charles Wesley
