wearing: vintage hat & blouse, vintage red shorts, ASOS bow belt, vintage leather bag, DIY lace socks, Rubi shoes wooden wedges, bubble stick from Big W
This set of photos is probably my favourite from the lot, they were the ones taken with lizzie at the park. I think it must be because of how the red and blue stand out so much against the green. Also, i love how we managed to capture the bubbles floating whimsically in the air around me! We went through almost three tubes of bubble mix on the day. Two small ones and a large one. I think i pretty much had a permanent ‘bubble face’ on.
The shirt and hat are lizzie’s and i came up with this outfit on the morning of the shoot by pairing it with my red denim shorts! I think i must have packed at least 10 outfits, in fact i’m pretty sure i did. Pretty ambitious for a 2.5 hour shoot but nevertheless, we did get quite a bit done!

Hello! Just a quick update with an outfit a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to make it short and sweet as i have about a bazillion things i need to get done before i go to sleep tonight. Firstly, i received this lovely rainbow beaded necklace from Aussie jewellery store – Fourth Crusade. Cute name huh? In fact, what’s cuter, is the packaging. The square cards below? They’re business cards. How creative right :)
So anyway, in my mind i pictured this necklace going perfectly well with a simple floaty white dress to wear twirling around some grassy fields. Alas, i did not have any grass fields to near me, nor could i find my only white dress. So this was the second best thing. A white blouse and some plain coloured pieces to allow the necklace to be the statement piece. I’m still looking forward to finding my white dress or just finding the perfect white dress in general to wear this necklace with, you may see it again when Spring/Summer arrives!
In other news, i am busy being a busy bee and am finding it extremely tough to manage everything on my plate this semester. Why do i find it worse than last semester? I don’t know. I guess perhaps with my growing blog (now 3000+ google followers! <3) and just the overall workload of my degree + just everything else i am finding it extremely hard to answer all the messages i get through lookbook, twitter, my blog email, chictopia, facebook + the many other ways i seem to be able to be contacted online. Pretty much lagging in all aspects over here so, bear with me for a while! I think i’m pretty thankful that i have a generously sized backlog of posts going on right now for my blog, or else i might not even have time to update twice a week!

A few weeks ago the lovely Lizzie and i went to some suburban gardens to do this vintage themed photo shoot. It was a sneaky sunny day with lots of morning frost and wetness. We spent the day rolling a suitcase around the gravel paths and sinking our heels into the muddy hills, but it was all worth it in the end as it was tonnes of fun and we got tonnes of shots as well!
Here is the first outfit that i style for the day, i’m wearing a velvet black dress which was to contrast with the colourful helium balloons we got at the local party supplies shop. Lizzie did my hair in a low bun, i’ve never had my hair like this before and despite it not holding too well (unfortunately i’ve just started growing my layers out), i love it :)
Between our photos, we accidentally got our balloons caught up on the tree and somehow i magically jumped in my heels in gravel (quite dangerous now that i think about it) and managed to grab hold of the string before a taller passerby helped us maneuver them out. Anyway it was an extremely fun morning and there are many more photos to come. This is just the first batch, and i’ve been trialling some new photo editing methods now that my lag-free computer is proving to be much more easier to use.
Tomorrow i’m doing another little photoshoot in the morning, can’t wait to share. But for now, thanks lizzie for the lovely photos & hair :)
