polka.dress...







this little number was an impulse buy the other day. well, however impulsive, it was completely necessary. you see i arrived at uni wearing that vintage dress that belongs to my sister's boyfriend's mum (which i've shown you twice in my life) and as i was sitting down, the strap broke. the most ridiculous thing was that i was mid conversation and by no means engaged in any sort of vigorous movement. merely picking up my bag, and there she went. noww i was just about to go on stage for a mini concert we had. rather than travel home to change i decided to roll down the road and use this inconvenience to my advantage - buy a new dress. so here we are, a few dollars too many later, and i have myself some pretty new polka-dots to prance around in for the camera. it is definitely the longest dress i've ever worn to uni, so go me. realising that it's okay for me to show only the lower half of my leg. people won't think i'm completely midget. in fact. i'm the same height no matter what the length of my skirt/shorts. perhaps my short-things-elude-to-longer-legs theory is beginning to fail. 
and there we go. i've yet again managed to discuss nothing is such detail. the dress is by salasai, and i purchased it at brave new world in northbridge. such a cute shop. i need to head in there more. that is, when there are sales.. okay. sorry the photos aren't too thrilling, but you get the general classiness of this flowing number. that's all for now,

wedding shoot.


hi friends. been a while.
well today i was styling for a bridal test shoot. i was wearing my new maurie and eve top that i got on sale. and i like it. i like it a lot. much like this necklace that i totally sporadically made the other day. i saw some chain sitting on my bench, and a pair of pliers, and this is what happened. i think it's super cool and chainy. worn with my old thrifted diy shorts. i'm starting to feel like i need to replace them. the alternate pair of high waisted denim shorts that i did buy, i must have been delusional to even really think they pass as pants. that's pretty rich coming from me. the girl who likes to think she eludes to longer legs by wearing things as short as she can get them without becoming inappropriate or awkward. that in mind, i have actually worn these very shorts i am talking about. the key is to wear something long covering your behind... okay fine they're still way too short. which is why i've decided to never wear them again. without tights that is.. hehe.
okay enough of my shorts. back to the shoot. so we went to the store wallcandy in highgate area where they sell wallpaper and other cute home/furniture goods. it turned out to be a lovely day. yet tiring. running around trying to find clips for the dress (which you can see on display) and tying up silly corseted dressed. and holding lights. and posing models. blah blah the usual. anyway the photographer was khen chen, and he really is lovely. he definitely made the day enjoyable. along with my beautiful friend chantal who did the makeup and hair. aaaand of course the gorgeous models. one of which was baby sister (who you can see with a half red lip above) and natalie who was the sweetest. looking forward to seeing what they all turn out like.
lotsa love.
