As soon as my friend and I heard that the The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibition was coming to Melbourne excitement levels peaked and a trip to the NGV was planned.

The exhibition celebrated fashion by JPG and all the artistry behind it, something my friend and I highly appreciated. The wonderful creations by JPG were presented in themes and eras, showcasing the monumental pieces and highlighting the construction behind them. There were so many rooms each with different decor to uniquely present the collections by JPG. Each new room I entered I was taken aback by the decor, photographs and the meticulously designed pieces of clothing. It was also pretty awesome seeing pieces worn by Beyonce and Lady Gaga in well-known performances, you can witness with your own eyes the but size of Queen B!

Sorry for the poor 'Game of Thrones' reference! I had to.

With Summer fast approaching now here in Australia it time to put away my coats, vest and knit jumpers and make room for lightweight dresses, crop tops, shorts and skirts. Every season I love to add extra pieces to my wardrobe to wear in various different outfits throughout the months. I recently found the online store MsFairy, which stocks a wide range of clothing, but most importantly many potential new pieces to add to my summer wardrobe. Scrolling through their endless skirts, dresses, tops, etc. it made me long for the continued hotter weather. Oh and this jumpsuit!

Hi there. It’s been quite some time (three months) since I’ve updated my blog. Time has flown by so quickly and so much has happened in university and life in general. I always kept in the back of my mind that I needed to update my blog, but I just never got around to actually sitting down and doing it. Three months later here I am wondering how in the world did I neglect it for so long, alongside my blog email inbox which is filled with unread emails.

Here’s to hoping that a major hiatus like that does not happen again.

The photos above are of the Japanese Gardens in Toowoomba. Toowoomba is a country town in Queensland that I visited during my winter break from University. It was such a pretty sight. I’m not sure if its psychological thing because Japanese Gardens are associated with peace and serenity, but whilst walking around and enjoying the views I honestly did feel so peaceful. Minus the large ducks (I’m terrified of birds) and the chilly wind.

I need that peace and serenity again. Exam time is fast approaching; wish me luck and good luck to all the university and high-school students going through it as well.

Thanks for reading!

Floral Midi-Skirt

Midi-skirts are possibly my favourite bottoms.

I have featured them a couple of times on my blog and I can't get enough.

In the age of short shorts, mini-skirts and bum cheek peering shorts (nothing against either of them) the length of a midi-skirt is a nice change. It's modest but not old-fashioned and whether you are wearing a full skirt version or a pencil skirt version they exert femininity and sophistication. Okay fan-girl moment about midi-skirts over.

Even though I'm quite short and therefore they may not look very flattering on me, it's nothing a nice pointed heel can't fix. I may get a bit jealous when I see a slim and tall girl killing it in a midi skirt and nice pair of flats.

What are your thoughts on midi-skirts?


Here are some other lovely midi-skirt I found: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Collared Dress: Asos on sale!, Cat Eye Sunnies: Asos, Shoes: Asos on sale! (as you can see I have a shopping problem with Asos)

I can spend hours and hours scrolling through online sale pages, it's a serious problem. I hadn't online shopped, or even shopped in a while since starting university and the need accumulated and exploded on Asos' sale. My addiction told me I needed to compensate for all the shopping lost since my withdrawal and resulted in a wish list page worth too ridiculous to even write. Luckily I still had some self restraint and told myself I only needed 8 of the items.

This dress and the shoes were two of the purchases.
I told myself I needed a Wednesday Adams like dress, because who doesn't?
And I told myself I needed these shoes, because pointed heels and a chunky heel is just what every odd girl needs.

I’m into my second week of university and I’m already feeling a drastic life style change. Last year I was walking to and from my high-school 5 days a week and now I’m taking the train into and from the city 4 days a week. I used to have a set school uniform and I now I have the difficult task of picking my outfits everyday, which the outfit above is an example of.

 Everything from my daily school schedule to my social life has changed. I’m meeting new people and trying as best as possible to fully immerse myself into the social aspect of university. Unfortunately I haven’t seen quite a few of my friends from high school who I used to see everyday. It’s a weird transition from seeing your close-knit friends everyday to hardly seeing them. One of my close friends even has a new nose piercing which I haven’t seen, even though a piercing isn’t a huge life altering event it feels weird that I haven’t seen her with it yet. Fortunately social media is a blessing and I can still keep in contact with my friends without seeing them. That means my friend and I have still been able to largely talk about her piercing and sending each other links of cool designs, including this site as a guide for nose ring buyers.

Hopefully soon I will see my friend with her new piercing and all my lovely friends from high-school.

I hope you new or returning university students have a great semester!

Thanks for reading!

Faux Leather

Firstly I'd like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! I wish you all the best for 2014.

I wanted to venture out and style faux leather shorts. I've always thought leather shorts were an odd mix because shorts imply Summer which leather contradicts, but then again trends aren't meant to be logical. 

For future self reference or to future leather shorts wearers; keep in mind the cringing of the shorts when taking photos (don't cross your legs like me :P) and your bottom may stick to your couch.
