socks & stripes

 sushi lunch. in my new one teaspoon dress with the amazing little dangly useless garters. those australians are kicking our asses in the apparel world. one teaspoon, stylestalker, ellery, shakuhachi, lover, sass & bide....all killing me on a regular basis. when it's cold i do anything in my power not to wear jeans. over the knee socks + boots = pants. not that i hate pants, i just prefer a denim short any day. even a "cold" day. i use the term cold very loosely. let's get serious--it's california. back to my original subject---why i'm jealous of the aussies. 1. because they have all the good lines at their disposal. and 2. it's hot there right now.
dress: one teaspoon, jacket: vintage, socks: american apparel, boots: joie, bag: topshop

  2. Hey don't hate on us Aussie girls! Yes there is some amazing local fashion for those who can afford it!!
    We are not all so privileged to be decked out head to toe in our fellow Aussie's labels no matter how much we wish it could be the case. Plus may I add that we have so little to access to designers that are widespread throughout Europe and the US many are not available here and don't ship down under :( And as for the heat.. Yes it's fabulous in theory but trust me when it hits summer and you have weeks where everyday is 45 degrees celcius plus it gets OLD real fast!

    Love the blog but trust me it's not a case of the grass being greener

  19. I definitely agree by the post of "little Miss C" - good Australian fashion is SO expensive for what it is - and we have very limited access to majority of the great brands you all have overseas!
    I'm currently in Europe at the moment and loving having so much great stuff for so cheap!!!

    Love your blog by the way!

  22. i just ordered these joie boots. they look way better in your photos than online. they look so soft and suede-y in these pics. the mud suede online looks stiff. i'm hoping they arrive looking as good as yours!

  23. I love the coat! I am always really jealous when someone finds something great vintage/thrift shopping, because I know it would be impossible to find the exact same one.
