This weekend was crazy busy for Shane and I. So sorry in advance for the short post and only one photo. Am wearing my fantastic new Zambesi leggings again. I love them, have worn them already 3 times in one week. They are so warm and comfy. I paired them with my The Cause Hi Boot by Jeffrey Campbell and all day people were staring at my legs trying to work out if I was wearing really high boots or pants and boots combo. I got so many comments. I also got a lot of the stink eye but I’m kind of used to that.

Yesterday I went on a sight recky with fantastic photographer Markus Van Driel. We visited an amazing beach that isn’t used very much in Sydney. That could be because it has a reputation for surf gang violence. The Bra Boys have given Maroubra a bit of a bad name.
Whilst wandering up and down the cliffs I got Markus to photograph me. I told him how much I LOVE Alexander Wang and that I tried to do an inexpensive version of one of my favourite looks from the Fall 2009 collection.
I love this look, the denim shirt with tailored black trousers and those fabulous shoes. In my version I trade the pants for ruched leggings and the shoes without the rings. I think this is going to be my new favourite outfit.

I ‘ve had a few comments about my take on Glunge. I’ve been told it’s too much glamour not enough grunge. Today’s dressing adventure had me thinking about this. I decided to dress down a bit but still incorporate some glam. My boyfriend jeans, Stella copies and a motorcycle jacket were the go to pieces today. So did I do Glunge any better this time?

Today I didn’t have a “dressing adventure”. I was in a panic, I felt like crap from lack of sleep but I had 4 meetings back to back very early this morning. Today I dressed partly for the rainy cold weather and partly because I lack inspiration.
I’ve been feeling a bit low, the fashion industry is tough and I’m feeling a little down from all the rejection I’ve been getting lately. I need to develop a thicker skin.

Last night my wonderful fashion mentor had a birthday. She is now officially part of the Cougar Club as she is of that age but still looks so amazing that teenage boys go crazy for her.
Now because she is a an extreme Fashionista I knew I needed to be on my best fashion toes to play in her circles. As always when she puts together a soiree I meet the most amazing people and wonderful things happen.
So I’m still feeling the Glunge, leather skirt, studded belt and cut out boots. I found this leather skirt at General Pants by Don’t Ask Amanda and this belt at Supre. Now I have a short skirt and a long one. Need a fitted motorcycle jacket and then I will feel complete, well sort of, really need those Margiella cut out boots, then I’ll feel complete (till the next obsession hits).
Last night was a fun filled night filled with so much laughter. I had such a great time – ST you rock and happy birthday.
For some reason my camera isn’t working properly and the photos are blurry and out of focus.

Today’s dressing adventure started with my fantastic new boots. These are a great copy of the Gucci studded boots. They are by Tony Bianco purchased from the fabulous Maxx shoes on Bondi Beach. I LOVE them and heart my fantastic boyfriend for picking them up for me. Today I paired the boots with my old jeans, shirt sweater combo and my new GStar neoprene jacket – perfect for Bondi Beach.

Today I really really really wanted to sleep in but alas, I have two dogs who need to walk so it wasn’t going to happen. By the time I got back from the morning walk, all I wanted to do was crawl back in bed, which I did.
When I got up a couple of hours later, I decided a long walk into Paddo was just what both the dogs and I needed. Window shopping for me and more exercise for them. My dressing adventure started with my fab Jcrew sweater. Jcrew is getting so much press since the lovely Michelle Obama has made it fashionable. Don’t you just LOVE her style? I paired the sweater with my Ruby Denim jeans and my pink lace converse all stars. I threw a pink polka dot scarf on my neck and was good to go.
I think I like taking silly photos. Scary.

Today’s dressing adventure was a strange one. It is really rainy and dreary at the moment in Sydney. When I got up to walk the dogs I really had to rug up to stay warm. I was ment to be working today so got dressed in Stylist mode. Then the shoot I was working on got cancelled because of the pending rain. Since I was all dressed with no where to go my assistant SS and I decided to have a look at the shops to get some inspiration for a future shoot.
I try to go out and look at what’s in store at least once a week and check out all the windows and who is shopping where and for what. Just a tip for Sydney Siders – Sequin Leggings – both Cotton On and Supre have inexpensive versions.
We walked for ages but it was a very productive day and I’m happy with all the shots we took of clothes to inspire us. After having such a crap morning, it turned out to be a productive afternoon ending in the Lounge with a fab glass of Pinot Noir.
