Hi! So gotta say something first: really sorry about the whole say-I’m-going-to-post-and-then-I-don’t, honestly I’m out of the groove and really disorganised atm but that’s really no excuse. I’ve noticed a couple of comments on Tumblr etc and I thought I would say I’m sorry, really gonna try to keep things as consistent as I can. Everybody makes mistakes and my life is a little messy right now. Literally and figuratively.

So as y’all know I’m on holidays and I have been spending the majority of my time annoying my little sister (lovingly, of course), watching OITNB (I HAVE WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS) and eating all of the citrus off our cute lil mandarin and orange trees. I am going to Byron on Thursday for a little roadtrip with my roomie Renee and our friend Gemma. Fairly terrified for a three-hour drive by myself (not really known for my great driving skills tbh) but will be vlogging the whole thing so you’ll know whether I make it without having a mental breakdown. Or not. What are you guys doing with your holidays?

Some of these photos are from Melb-town and others I’ve taken here. I do miss the scenery and the city but certainly not the weather. Outfit posts will surely get interesting, given the layers I’m going to have to wear come winter. I’m going to look like a marshmallow. I am currently considering buying a puffer jacket. WHAT HAVE I BECOME?! Marshmallow chic? Is that a thing?

a friday photo diary

Renee and I (my roommate, for those of you who haven’t been here) always seem to have magical adventures on our days off uni. Stepping outside of the city for a day seems to be a portal to cheap fruit, cool galleries and bomb-ass op-shops. Friday’s adventure was in Coburg, which is a little bit of a walk up from the Brunswick area. I found this super-ugly ugly sweater and proceeded to wear it around kinda ironically but kinda not, we ate $3 Lebanese food and went to a really cool exhibit where there were flowers in Ren’s hair. The day was unplanned and total bliss. My favourite kind of day.

Also, it’s getting really freaking freezing here in Melbourne. Coat weather. Which is something I most definitely do not have laying around in my wardrobe. Recommendations are always appreciated! ‘Bout to post a Youtube video today too so keep eyes peeled for that. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

One fantastic thing about this city: style is subjective. Wear whatever the hell you want and there will be at least 3 people looking crazier than you. In a cool way. Walking through the street in Fitzroy is just as good, if not better than scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard. This red dress flailed all through the wind and dragged a little on the ground but that’s okay. The part where it split open and flashed my underwear to tourist family of 4… probs not so much.

Are any of you guys at uni rn? Because if you are, PLEASE ACCEPT MY CONDOLENCES. Basically, I’m just trying not to cry in every class and using every fibre of my being to resist pulling my hair out. Fashion school is not a bludge, people. Don’t trust anyone who says it is. Good news though- holidays are just around the corner. 3 weeks. I’ll be home and have ample time to blog/vlog/do things that aren’t school. I look forward to it. xx

Wednesdays are deemed “adventure days” for Renee and I. Meaning we both have the afternoon off, we meet in the city and get the cheapest lunch we can find (almost always Hari Krishna veggie curry) ($6 all you can eat fyi) and hit up a new gallery or three. This one was called ARC ONE and had some seriously beautiful technicolour paintings. I don’t know a lot about art (see here) but I do know that these looked rad. Is that what art critics say? Rad?

Also, recently I’ve had access to two wardrobes (which we all know is bad) so Ren’s perfectly worn mom jeans are my new favourite thing. And I can’t stop wearing this freaking bag, it now comes in the most beautiful nude of all time and my bank account is CRYING to be emptied. Not really. The opposite. Speaking of…. I gotta go get some groceries. I’ve currently got an empty bag of grapes, two cans of chickpeas and some off milk in my fridge. Hope your Friday afternoon is more exciting than mine. Talk soon! xx
