Zimmermann Nightshade Tea Rose Swing Jacket - S/S 2009-2010

Borrowed this gorgeous rayon jacket from my sister among other items, which I do quite often. I love this jacket so much and I find it difficult to find a colour or pattern that really suits my dark skin! It cuts well, and sits lower in the back. Great to be worn on top of Sass & Bide rats leggings in similar tone, or with a simple black slip dress on a hot summer day. It's also low maintenance... it can be washed in water :)
I wish my sister kind of forget about it (that I have them), so that I can keep it for a bit longer (maybe after she reads this, she will eventually follow my blog). Before I return it, I would like to post it here as a memoir so that in the future it may remind me to borrow it again, maybe in the next season..

Bought this funky necklace for $10 from the Kirribili market!

These Givenchy gladiator sandals are so comfy

Weekend Brunch Outfits - Zimmermann

This is what I wore yesterday when I had a brunch in Waterloo :-)

Zimmermann Slouch Dress, a slip, Mimco necklace, $3 aviator sunnies from the market, Channel Classic Jumbo, Topshop gladiator patent sandals, and a grin :-)

I'm a very simple person, and I love this simple slouch cotton dress for warmer weather

Love this sandals to bits, I wore these every Summer for years

Some Burlesque Actions at Victoria Room - Darlinghurst

A unique dining experience where guests were entertained up to 5-6 burlesque performances in one night. Perfect for a first date or some special occasions; birthdays and hen's night. This is also the location where the lingerie shoots were taken for one of the Australia's Next Top Model Season 7 episode :)
The reception

The burlesque dancer, she's also singing live at the same time!

You can share a tapas-like meal (aka small serve meals) for around $14-$20 per plate

Definitely a perfect location for some photo shoots, love the feminine Victorian style setting :-) My sister is wearing a Zimmermann sequins dress.

I'm in Alannah Hill, top to toe :-)

Love this "My Pink Chandelier" skirt! It's like a tutu skirt, but bouncier & bigger

The inspiration doll :)

Áustralia's Next Top Model - After Party

This is the only TV show that I have been watching lately, and I was so happy that Montana won! She's like Australian version of Kate Moss, only better :-) Btw she's far more beautiful from the pics below (the make up make her look a bit paler for some reason).

Eventhough I like Montana to win, personally Rachel was my favourite girl (from left to right: Charlotte, Neo, Rachel, & Tayah)

Here's my favourite pictures from the competition...
Reminisence of a manga cartoon character!

Memoirs of Last Year's Spring Carnival

Last year I won Fashion on The Field competition at work by surprise. I wore Alannah Hill "Puff The Magic Dragon" cardi, also the designer's cami, skirt & shawl, and a Louboutin patent heels in nude. When we found out that I have to walk up to the stage, my collagues 'fix' me up by adjusting how my rabbit fur shawl sits on my shoulders and my fascinators, which were really sweet (and which I didn't have the capacity for as I was too excited & nervous to be on stage in front of hundreds of co-workers).
Originally my hat didn't have any details on top of it, but after a quick browse for fascinators in nearest David Jones for inspirations, I bought a net & a feather at a local Lincraft store (all done at the same lunch break prior to the function), and pinned them together with pins. I'm glad they were happy with the result :)

Beautiful sunny day in Balmain wharf...

Pink & purple are my most favourite colours, alongside with red. I'm wearing an Alannah Hill "Little Sailor Girl" top from 2010 Collection, a Nudie jeans, and a Converse. I love this low cut top to bits, I can wear it down or up (as a formal work outfit by teaming it up with a smart pencil skirt). How cute is the tie detail! It's made from beautiful wool material, and also comes in red & black. 

Self explanatory image...
