i love Lizzie...

Lizzie Fortunato SS12 via

last season I completely fell in love with Lizzie Fortunato's accessory range - this season is no different.  the mix of beading, heavy chains, spikes and pony hair ticks every box in my book.. love, love, love!!! x

Baby, you just make me mad....

'But mostly you just make me mad.
Baby, you just make me mad.'

Perfect song x

i see red...

i think the just about the only thing that calms the angry beast inside when i am fuming (besides gin of course) is shoes.. 

on friday i was seeing red, absolute scarlet... the type of anger that could level a building with a single roar.

 i was at a point of no return - or so i thought.. that was until the arrival of a shopbop GV from work for my birthday- with a little help from my credit card my red was toned down to terracotta...

thank you Mr Wang for fixing my hurt.

i am a stickler for traditions of sort (well ones that help me gain new shinny things) - one tradition that i am a massive fan of is buying something on my birthday that helps me regress slightly.

last year it was kids size metallic cons - this year it was my obsession of the moment - a Cambridge Satchel..  sadly when i logged onto Asos all the amazing flouro colours had sold out - however on it's merry way to a desk near me soon is a hot pink 11".  x

So lost in modern art..

in just under two weeks i will be watching the amazing mr gable with the infamous 'just lost my shit' look in my eyes - until then apologies for being a rubbish blogger..  

like this clip - i feel like i am losing touch a little with everything that is currently going on in my life...

such fab clip - hang out for the bottle at the end which is the give away for me that this clip has been shot and then played in reverse.. GENIUS! xx

the man who sold the world

today marks the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's sad passing - while i was more of a Courtney fan i could not let the day pass.... 

i love this cover of David Bowie's 'The Man Who Sold The World' almost as i love the original x

got kicks..

just before i went to Japan i decided that i was in desperate need of new shoes - well new shoes that could trek around the back streets of Harajuku.  

living in Australia most people complain that we are a season behind the rest of the world - but i say we have the advantage as we can seize trends by the horns and embrace the fringed kimonos before the rest of the world - hey think about it - it is actually winter here when the winter catwalks show.  also this gives us the added advantage of getting great bargins online as winter is on sale in the US when it is just opening here..

which brings me back to my shoes....  the above is the result of my first online shop (hard to believe considering i work in fashion), i would like to thanks Urban Outfitters for putting a dent in my savings and delivering these amazing and ever so practical ( flouro pink nikes go with everything yes?) kicks to my work.. i am currently living in the cherry suede heel hikers - online shopping = solid gold x

we came to dance.

after weeks of banging on - yesterday was the day - the metal loving, punk hearting, ska worshiping day - soundwave.  the day to bring out your oldest most worn black band T, your 10 hole docs and tight jeans.  the day to worship to the alter of all things alternative and head smashingly awesome.

the highlight of the day for me was without a doubt The Mad Caddies playing Mary Melody - to quote my brother - you just lost your shit then.  followed by a very close second The Gaslight Anthem, although they did not play anything from my favourite cd - still amazing..  

the pics above are from the Gaslight's set - taken by my little bro, who has a slightly steadier hand than me when caught up the front in the smash of it. more slightly blurrier pics to come x
