i want you, i want you, i need you, i need you

man i love 10 things i hate about you, its got to be one of my favourite movies, purely for the scene when Heath Ledger is running up and down the seats, singing..................
But alas, this post is not about 10 things about you and whilst, yes i do need my own heath ledger (if you know any look a likes feel free to send them my way because there seems to be a drought in brissy town), i am actually here rambling about clothing.

SUMMER IS HERE...for real this time....last time i said that, the summer weather was here..but the ranges weren't...BUT NOW THEY HAVE ARRIVED!!!

So below is a wee bit of inspiration for what im feeling this summer.....

pretty please?

im sensing a DIY copcat of this with different wording (apologies i forgot where i found the picture)

Days ought to be spend looking like this...

A nose piercing is not really neccesary for summer, but Abbey Lee kind of has a way to make you want one a LOT!

Summer is also associated with festivalss as noted by the million woodstock style photoshoots that grace our magazines each summer....(russh, oyster i'm counting on you here). So here are a few pics from i shoot i did a while back with lovely photographer leanne dixon with a similar feel.

We found the "i'm looking for my soulmate sign" in the garden of one of the places we shot at, on the other side it says "free sex," it was the highlight of my life and so i not so sneakily stole it, it resides in my bedroom currently and forever :)

hope you like them!
Thats all for now guys, but i promise ill have some new outfit posts soon, i just have to remember to get batteries for my camera!!!!

Melbourne was fabulous fun.

I went down to the crazy land with my parents and sister, so it was like an old school family holiday (which we havent done since i was 12 so it was quite odd). Anyway the trip was mad fun and consisted of: getting lost, getting lost in the hotel, getting lost on the street our hotel was on and generally a lot of being lost. It also consisted of getting stuck in the elevator a million times, strange conversations with other people in the elevators and getting locked out of our room which for the record had no window in it. It did however, have a lovely white see through curtain dividing the bed from the rest of the room...how romantic...if i wasn't sharing a room with my sister.....nah who am i kidding it was still romantic haha, whilst we sat on the bed eating chocolate and watching the disney channel and mash.

The trip consisted of

-seeing the Dali exhibition

-Shopping (duh)

-seeing Chicago


-Visiting the old jail

-being lost


Whilst there were a million shops there, i only ended up buying two things. This amazing necklace, which is black rhinestone and silver. ($55)

and i dress...which i'll post a picture of later because i don't have one atm.

.......and here (as promised) are my super lame tourist shots from the old jail which was probably my favourite part of the trip.

My attempt at being a madman in the padded room :)

Mug shot...note the crazy red eye

Let me out

Please Sir, i swear im sane.
but not really..........
til then

I'm back!

Hello hello hi hi hey hey!

I'm back from Melbourne (city of rain and cold which i will post about later to save from having to split this post into chapters) and am now home in good ole sunny brissytown!

My parents just arrived back from the UK....and with them came mountains of radness as pictured below.


This epic bundle of joy is a traditional one, carried by hand all the way from oxford st, back to brisbane so as not to crush it :P thanks mum, thanks dad haha i love it so!


London, london, london, how i wish i could have been there with them! This is officially my favourite piece of clothing in my presence. The picture does not do it justice at all. But you're sure to be seing many pics of it in the future, because i refuse to take the damn thing off!

LEATHER CAP..it was my grandad's and he sent it back with my parents for me (i love it dearly)


Oh the PAIN the PAIN the PAIN, i trapsed all over Melbourne in the bitter sweet darlings and my feet are currently cut, blistered and bruised along with my bruised calves. But i love them so it's okay.

There was stacks of other things too, ( a new bikini, a skirt, underwear haha, shoes etc.) but you'll have to wait to see them because i've just put everything away and i'm far too lazy to get anything out again. I'm also a wee bit scared that if i attempt to pull one item of clothing out the entire wardrobe will explode and i'll be back to where i was in the beginning.

Anyway stay posted for my epic melbourne adventure post which is sure to inlcude tacky tourists shots YIPPEE!

til then

I have been rather absent of late, i apologise, although doubt that it has really bothered you. I don't think my blog has reached biblical proportions exactly which is lucky for you really because for one not only do i not ask for a percentage of your pay as the church does or used to (though it can be arranged if you feel it's needed) and secondly unlike in the bible the main character here actually exists.
Anyway it seems the world decided to play a nasty little game called "remind elke just how human she is" and it struck me down with illness. Hence the lack of outfit posts, or posts of anykind.
until next time
oh and let me know if you want the rest of the words on the image above

My Bright Eyed Monster

Oh sweet world, how kind you are on the rare occasion!

Yes i FINALLY have a day off. A day of nothingness. No work. NO uni. Nothing.

It's going to be great.

Anyway as i will most likely be spending today in my oh so fine striped pj's, here is what i wore yesterday.

I'm holding on to the last gasps of winter with clenched fists before im smothered by sunshine.

Also big thanks for letting me know where i could fine the "to hell and bach" shirt i posted about earlier, just my luck that they're out of stock now! Like i said, the world is kind on the RARE occasion. Apparently i am not allowed to have my cake and eat it too.

Okay you know the drill, thats all for now folks

Peaceout xox

ps: thinking of wasting the day with movies...any suggestions?

They hide in the world

As promised, here is what i wore yesterday. I went down to the old tennis court at the bottom of my garden and stomped around in my new heels getting mud all over....it was great....and the neighbours think im nuts. All in all, a successful venture on my part :)

I love dead gardens :)

My baby says he got the blues, but i'm still stuck in black

Sunday was fathers day, my parents are currently overseas so instead of spending time bonding, i went to the beach with a friend. Much as im sure you'd all love to see pictures of the beach and sun and half naked people on the beach and in that sun, i fear you may have seen something similar once or twice before in your lives. Instead, friends i show you the poster that was behind us as we ate lunch.


In around 2.5 weeks or so im going to Melbourne (1st time ever) for a little holiday (4 days) so i have made a deal with the devil herself aka: my nasty inner shopping addict not to spend any money on clothing until then......

But i couldnt resist these lovely feet killers :)

Sachi, on sale at myer $54 (how could you say no?)

also today i finally went and picked up my new book and compcards YIPPEE!!!!
Until then....peaceout lovers xo

Float on my Summer Song

Today, my dearest 9 favourite people in the world (aka: my followers) it is Spring!! I had uni, which was boring as pie. For those of you who don't know (which i'm assuming is 8 of the 9 followers) i study creative writing. Yes i'm going to be a poor struggling poet lovers, a well dressed one too!

Anyway, after uni i decided to browse around good ole brissy town and stumbled across the dress i have on in the pics below. Its a mink pink number (honestly that brand seems to get better and better as they go on). They always have fun pieces for a good price (this dress was 89.95).


I also stumbled up the stairs on Adelaide st to that fun old music store, and got myself a lovely Doors poster which i decided was probably due seeing how they are my favourite band an all.

Currently listening to: Raising Sand by Robert Plant/ Alison Krauss, my Dad came home with it a while ago and its very worthy of a listen, if not the album then at least look up "gone gone gone (done moved on)" because its awesome as!

That's all for now lovely people
until next time........
peaceout xo
