Hey beautiful creatures! So as it turns out, I have a new job in fashion. I work with a company that distributes brands to Australia (mainly from the US) so we don't just miss out on huge brands and are only able to get them while abroad or shopping online. It's so exciting to be doing something that is more aligned with my interests. It's been a couple of months and I'm stoked to be part of it. Just in case you were wondering where I was hiding, that's my excuse. ;) ♡ Lucy.
Successful birthday! I got to spend time with my lovely family and friends. I had a cute lunch with my best friend, coffee with another, and hot chocolates and cuteness with a third before heading to dinner and drinks with my family. My friend (we'll call him hot chocolate friend) got me this AMAZING bag. Who knew country boys had so much style. ;)
Australia day get up! A few days ago is was Australia day, and I challenged myself to incorperate both green and yellow into my outfit in honour of the day. I ended up witht this super colourful get up. I had a few friends around for a BBQ while listening to the JJJ hottest 100 full aussie style and we had an amazing time.
Hey lovelies! I've been super busy lately, working really hard as well as planning my trip to America next year, shopping for xmas and making music with my new band. However, I have really been enjoying dressing up at every chance I get. Today, this is what I wore for my busy day collecting mail, sending xmas presents, shopping and going out for dinner (and maybe an episode or two of desperate housewives- shh!). ;) Wearing: Black Milk Wetlook Skater Dress, Supre button up shirt (ick haha), Lovisa necklace, Nastygal bag.
Today has been super busy for me, with lots of appointments and a shift at work as well, but I managed to get a few snaps of my OOTD! The weather is a bit questionable in Melbourne right now, pouring rain one day and warm the next. So today wore my new Black Milk wetlook/black JF spartan leggings with a printed ombre Dangerfield shirt and a grey knitted vest. I paired it with a paper look clutch from Saxony for a look that would work in any kind of weather. To finish I added dark cherry lipstick and some cat eye sunglasses. Hope you're all having a fabulous day. :) x
Last weekend I flew up to Brisbane to attend the Black Milk annual Christmas party (you can check out all of the pictures on instagram under #bmparty13)! The weekend was extremely jam packed but oh so much fun! On Friday, we were treated to a tour of the three locations where Black Milk create their amazing clothing by the label owner, James Lillis. He showed us how the garments are printed, cut, and sewn, and then we also got to see (my favourite) the design room. It was full of amazing prototypes and sketches. Unfortunately (but understandably) we weren't able to photograph anything from the design room. We were then able to purchase some samples and be part of the weekly podcast which featured the new gym wear range.
On Saturday BM held an event at Wet N Wild but instead, my friends and I headed into Brisbane for a day of pampering in preparation for the party that night! The event was limited to 500 people and when we arrived there was a huge line to get in. Luckily for us, because we arrived with James, we were able to go straight in and enjoy the sharktini's, photobooths and great company! All in all, it was a very successful weekend in the valley. Can't wait for next year! :)
Yesterday the Pop Up Op Shop posted a link to my blog about my visit! How exciting. In other news, one of my favourite shoe brands Miista posted my styling of their ombre boots (which I own) on their facebook a while back too!
And funnily enough, just today while procrastinating assignments, I found a repost from my instagram on Beginning Boutiques facebook page! Check it out here.
Loving the small amount of promotion! It's very sweet when businesses appreciate you as a customer enough to support your blog with a link.
After a lot of lusting and a little trouble, they're finally mine! All in their gold holographic beauty. These are the Stern shoes in gold from the How Two Live x Winsdor Smith collab. I couldn't be prouder of Jes and Stef, the Melbourne sisters who have taken the fashion world by storm with their eclectic wardrobe(s?) and co-ordinated outfits. These shoes are of the usual Windsor Smith quality. They don't look like they'll fall apart anytime soon, but they're not going to last me years (crying at the thought). I found they they fit fairly true to size, maybe a teeny bit big (which is perfect for me, as I'm in between sizes) if anything. They're also super comfortable while still giving you some added height. Personally, I was heartbroken when they sold out at WS, and I know lots of others were too, so I emailed them to ask about a re-stock, but I was told there was no more. Then, I randomly checked the site last week and boom, there they were! Fab. I honestly would have prefered buying them from solestruck, as they are amazing over there and the shoes were being put up a few days afterwards, but I would have had to pay shipping from the US to here as well. So, get them while you can from Windsor Smith (only some styles/sizes left) or Solestruck. :)
- They're totally worth the $150 price tag
- Fairly true to size.
- More htl x ws please, or even better, htl x solestruck.
It was nice, sunny spring weather in Melbourne. For about a week.
Now it's back to cold and rainy. But, on the plus side, this means I get to wear layers for a little longer! Tonight I went off to meet some friends for all you can eat indian bbq. Amazing. Wearing Black Milk as usual, and the rest is all no name kind of stuff that I picked up from random places. :) My hair has gotten brighter, which is awesome,
I am really happy with my red. I feel like Gerard Way.
Today is BRINTY DAY! Which translates roughly to: "I have uni today and I kinda want to look grungy but I really don't actually care because I get to see my sister today and I am excited as fuck". *sigh* Is is 6.25pm yet?! :D Going to change my outfit now anyway! Follow me on instagram for more pics.
I do enjoy outfit planning while avoiding housework. All of these items are new! I love the clutch so much. It's super glittery and shiny and so BIG! The shoes were a last minute purchase. I haven't worn non-rounded toe flats in AGES. So these will be a bit fun and different for me. I also plan to wear this jumpsuit with my JC rainbow Popos. Standout and a bit crazy... exactly what I like. xoxo
