Weekend Craves

top, cardigan, jeans, bag, sneakers

Before you have time to take it all in, Friday is here again! Friday is made up of all that fun stuff and I generally lives by the the rule borrowed from my best friend - 'I allow myself four drinks'. My second favourite day of the week would have to be Saturday, spent window shopping, preferably wearing this outfit.

Style Friday 0.2





 


I already have some thick knits out from storage as winter is creeping near, now fingers crossed I win a gorgeous wool coat on the good old ebay!

Project 12.12: March Update

There goes one month of Project 12.12! Long story short, I am on a shopping diet this year where I only treat myself to 12 new quality pieces to my wardrobe. Read detailed post on how I first started here and last month's update here

I used to have a lovely River Island coat that I wore from am to pm, but to my dismay excessive night outs put an end to our relationship. This month I have been looking everywhere for a replacement to serve me this coming winter. On ebay I came across an oversived Stella Mccartney blazer that would have been perfect if it was a thicker material. I didn't want to risk buying something that would not suit my purpose though. Let me know what you think though!

Paddy Fields





 


Some pictures from my Bali trip recently! We went to this french restuarant by the paddy fields a little before dinner time so we took a stroll and enjoyed the amazing landscape. The sweet potato chips were so yummy and went well with cocktails.

Fancy Pants



 


A typical scenario repeats ifself every so often when I add a 'forever to have and to hold' piece to my wardrobe, I reach for it every single day. Fancy pants need no bold accessorising so I called it a day with just minimal yet functional pieces. Melbourne has been scotching hot over the long weekend, I can't imagine myself wearing anything else but this cami. Braving to step out of the house proved to be rewarding. I bought home an opal necklace from a gem show. If you love semi-precious as much as I do, check out my Agate bracelets. No pressure of course!

Project 12.12: February Update


First update of Project 12.12, which is basically my challenge to myself to only make 12 planned purchases (excluding basics) this year. So far two months into 2014 is almost up and I am quite proud with my progress. I have been eyeing this lace slip dress from Zara for months but couldn't justify if a trend item will stand the test of time. The color really hit the jackpot for me, I find myself wearing my black dresses the most, a piece like this can be layered in endless ways. My pick to bring me through the upcoming autumn/winter is the Isabel Marant Scarlet boots (on sale here). It looked killer when I wore them with skinny jeans yesterday. Yep I am guilty of stroking the leather every time I put them on.
