Bright and Shiny

I am done with school for this semester! No more exams, no more books... I can't contain myself.
It gives me time to catch up with sleep and I can reply to all your comments. So sorry!

I'll keep it short and I promise I will look after the blog! Thank you so much for sticking around

Sequined Blazer, thrifted; ring, forever new; cotton on tee

I found this beautiful sequined blazer and I am so glad I bought it. Money well spent me thinks.
Sequins is no longer trashy or to be left for that planned trip to Las Vegas. Wear it well. Wear it with confidence.

Here is a lil dose.

Michael Kors, Rodarte, Stella McCartney, Thakoon

3.1 Phillip Lim (far left), Thakoon (center), Derek Lam (right).

3.1 Phillip Lim, Alberta Ferretti, Alexander McQueen, Badgley Mischka

Gucci, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Isaac Mizrahi, Matthew Williamson

Oh and has anyone heard of Twenty Seven Names

I absolutely love their stuff better still they are so close to home

Exams, the flu and a chilly winter is what I have been experiencing the past three weeks. Inspiration down the drain.

What has been keeping me company

Metric- Fantasies

This song has been on repeat for quite some time now. Great album.

welcome back sugahh, missed your blog posts! hope your hiatus did you well.:) btw, i'm loving sequins as well. thats the funny thing about them-- one second you hate yourself for having them cuz they become kitschy, and the next thing you know they're back being hot! well i guess fashion on the whole is like that, lol.
much love

you remind me of one of my friends.. although i doubt you are her.. seeing as her name isnt reallly alix. anywayz, haha

ps. re: MCA Actually, it was a bit crazy, cos it was the last day, and theyre only supposed to let 4p people go in at a time, but they were letting up to 7 people in by the end of the day bc it was closing at 5.. and it was the last day etc etc etc.. but i swear taht they MUST have cameras cos a friend went and she was in a room with small kids and afer about 30 seconds the lady came in and shouted to them to stop touching the water ><"


lucky they didnt catch me with the camera. i am probably on the "NEVERALLOWEDTOENTERAGAIN" wall at MCA. oh noes.

ps. lluuuuuvvvee that jacket yo.. an the whole "band uniforms" on the catwalk. soooo trendeh =]

Wow! I have been looking for a sequined blazer for ages. I finally found one in Melbourne whe I was down last, but it was in Gold. A colour I could never pull off. So I went into the store to ask if it came in silver (a colour I would be willint to pay the $350 for) and the little queen behind the counter sneered at me and quipped "Now why would we have it in silver?"

I just started at him, said "Riiight..." and left.

You look smashing :D Xx
