What started out as a preppy look ended somewhere in the 60′s librarian territory after I attempted an updo and got my hands on some eyeliner and red lipstick. This is exactly what usually happens with my outfits: what starts out as one thing quickly snowballs in something completely different. And then something else. But you can never go wrong with spots and stripes, right?
I’m going to keep this short and sweet as I’m off for sushi date followed by some much needed sleep…. don’t forget to enter my Asos giveaway and have a lovely weekend!
Wearing: Popbasic blouse, Asos skirt, Marc Fisher loafers.
So it’s no secret that Asos is my favourite online retailer (and that’s a big call) so it seemed only appropriate to let you guys share in one of my life’s greatest pleasures: online shopping. $35 may not seem like a whole lot, but on Asos, it can strech pretty far- from strappy heels to cat eye sunglasses to holographic clutches. This giveaway coincides with my current Stylight competition, so by entering, you’re basically hitting two birds with one awesome stone. And possibly winning $35 and a trip to Germany. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a refresher….
So all you gotta do is enter below and cross your fingers! Good luck! xo
PS- it closes on the 4th of November and is open internationally.

I’m back! I feel like it’s been forever since a real post. Basically I’ve had a non-stop weekend filled with, well… socialising? Usually a foreign concept for me (I like to spend time on my computer, OK) but this 3-day weekend has been full on. Time for a catch-up. I’m obsessed with these Guess shoes- trust me when I say your legs look at least a million times better when you’re wearing these. As for the wearability factor, I seriously wish I had fabulous places to wear these… someday!
This was probably one of my most embarrassing photo-taking experiences, as Kurt forced me onto the side of a main road. Many, many stares were received. It’s definitely the shoes.
I’m off to re-watch Mean Girls for the 7th time and catch up on lost sleep. By the way, as per recommendation, I’ve started John Green’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson and I’m loving it so far. Hopefully starting the Mortal Instruments series soon too! What are you reading? xo
PS- Don’t forget to follow me on Stylight for your chance to win a trip to Germany!

Just a quick post to express my love for Gorman’s Summer 2013 collection. I feel like it was almost made for me, with all the fruity, print-on-print and holographic goodness going on. Let’s just say if I could wear one collection for the rest of summer, this would be it. My weakness for watermelons is not only taking over my diet (it’s 90% water so that makes it OK… right?) but my wardrobe too. Probably not the most classic of prints, but too fun to resist. I like wearing my food on my sleeve. Happy Friday- talk soon! xo
Spent yesterday hanging out in the city with Mum, and giving into the typical tourist mentality- decided to take photos amongst the gorgeous Southbank bougainvillea. I had to dodge some camera-wielding Japanese tourists and some skateboarding kids, but it was definitely worth it. Because I’m always overdressed, I decided to wear this Cameo skirt and Paper Heart top combo (I have this top in two colours- it’s perfect) finished off with some platforms I had to take off because my feet literally started bleeding. A good excuse for new shoes, right? These holographic Wittner babies were a whole lot more comfortable and scored a compliment from a very flamboyant man dressed (fabulously, may I add) in women’s clothing. You know it’s a good outfit when he’ll “be wearing them tomorrow!”
So it’s 5:35 am on the morning of my school camp and I can safely say I’ve eaten two pieces of fruit toast but not packed a thing. In true Izzy fashion I’ll probably overpack but still manage to forget half the stuff I need. This should probably be my cue to go… hope you all have a wonderful start to the week! xx
Wearing: Cameo skirt c/o Love of EOS, Paper Heart top c/o Shop Fashion Avenue, Wittner sandals.
I have a major soft spot for anything with a symmetrical, digital print- something about the trippy patterns and bright colours makes my heart pitter-patter. They’re not the most wearable of prints, so when I’m able to satisfy my trippy-print craving for cheap, I’m happy. This dress by Oasap fits the criteria, is $20 and gave me an excuse to wear my favourite shoes. Again. Is it bad that I justified these shoes with a dance that we technically haven’t even been told about yet? And I may or may not be already adding possible dress options to cart.
School is back and (for lack of a better word) poopy as ever. But, thanks to you guys, I have quite the lineup of awesome books to read… Looks like schoolwork will be at the bottom of my list for this weekend. But, now that I’ve settled into the whole school thing (yech) posts should be more frequent! Hurrah! Happy Friday xx

Hello! As promised, I am here with some fairly exciting news to start off your week…
I am currently part of an awesome competition in collaboration with STYLIGHT, and the grand prize is a trip for me and one of my readers to the Stylight Headquaters in Munich, Germany! How awesome is that?!
If you couldn’t be bothered reading this post (or just want to look at me awkwardly talking to a camera) I have a video explaining everything above, but here is a little background info:
STYLIGHT is an awesome fashion website that basically combines your personal style with a wishlist to keep track of products you’re loving, as well as an online fashion community! I like to think of it as a cross between Lookbook and Pinterest. It’s got all the good stuff in one spot, and the Australian website has just landed.
1o Australian bloggers, including myself, are part of a competition, and the potential prize is the chance for me and a fabulous reader to visit their hometown of Munich in early December! The competition is one month long. I will upload looks onto STYLIGHT and all you need to do is sign up, follow me and ‘love’ your favorite looks for the chance to join me for a festive trip to Munich. It’s really easy- just pick out a username and password by clicking on the little person in the top right-hand corner, click through to my profile and give me some lovin’. The blogger with the most amount of followers and “loves” by the end of the month wins!
To put it simply, I really, really want to go to Europe. And the chance to travel with one of you guys and meet the STYLIGHT team is kind of mind-blowing. If you agree, I would so, so appreciate your support!
Here is a link to my profile. Let me know if you have any questions… and if you’re as excited as I am. Good luck to us all! xx
This could be potentially gross, but I actually have not taken this shirt off since it arrived. I’ve slept in it and everything. As potentially gross as this may be, there is something so great about the humble t-shirt. Especially when it’s that soft, worn-in material with a faded print, like one of Dad’s old favourites from the 90′s that you now wear as a dress. This Wildfox tee from Love of Eos is the textbook perfect tee. Does this justify my three days straight wearing it? Maybe not. But I’m not the only one. Admit it, you’ve worn things for multiple days at a time. Cue Kate Saunders saying “Lizzie McGuire is an outfit repeater!” I’m sorry if you don’t understand my Lizzie McGuire movie reference. I need to get more sleep.
In other news: I finished The Fault in Our Stars, and Lordy May somebody pass the Kleenex. GUYS I WASN’T PREPARED. Well OK maybe I saw it coming but that didn’t make it any less devastating! And now that I’ve finished TFIOS and Looking for Alaska… what next? I need book recommendations, so if you have excellent taste (and I know you do) leave me a comment down below. I’m off to the city to window shop (emphasis on the window) and visit the galleries. I’ll be back on Monday with an exciting announcement! xx
Wearing: Wildfox tee c/o Love of EOS, jeans c/o Oasap, clutch c/o Missguided, Topshop sandals.
I decided to be a British schoolgirl for an hour or two yesterday. One clearly waiting for a bus (see photo 1) that never seemed to arrive (see nervous glance to the side in photo 4). I never thought there would come a time for patent platform loafers, but clearly I was wrong. A new surprising new shoe staple perfect with plaid, pinafores and grandpa-chic sweaters. This dress ticks two of those three boxes. You know you want to.
Keepin’ it short and sweet due to some serious sleep catch-up. I’m having some trouble uploading my Q & A video (Youtube hates me, apparently) but I’ll let you all know as soon as it’s up. What have you been up to? Hope you’re all having a lovely day! xx
