Sea Of Floral

Continuing on from my last post on Inner Circle, I guess my love for nature somewhat inspires and influences the extremely excessive amounts of floral I wear. Before I started getting into even more crazy amounts of prints (such as aztec, ethnic and 80s style geometric), my entire ‘print’ section of my wardrobe was literally floral and only floral. There were floral skirts, floral bags, floral dresses, floral blouses, floral pants, floral dresses, floral blazers.. hats adorned with flowers, the list goes on. I even used Marc Jacobs Daisy!
Inspired by the beautiful blooms nature brings this time each year, whenever I would walk past a flower garden or see some wild flowers growing by the sidewalk, I would instantly want something in a similar print.
Here’s to my love for floral print. Check it out over on Inner Circle here

wearing: kani handmade pumpkin hair wreath, diy evil pumpkin mask..mounted on a harry potter wand with sticky tape, lace top & peach petticoat skirt c/o chicwish, crop top from supre, suede ankle boots c/o yesstyle, bracelets from diva, overseas and thrifted, socks from a local sock shop and the spider was a from a gag magic showbag i once got my sister from the melbourne show.. but never again will i buy her such things (she’s scared me too many times).
Just a quick little post to say – hello early Halloween! Halloween isn’t celebrated as much in Australia (ok, i have been trick or treating once or twice. Fine, yes, some creepy aliens visited us last year), but ever since LOOKBOOK.nu started becoming SPOOKBOOK.nu, I’ve decided to join in on the fun. This handmade pumpkin hair wreath + a whimsical fairy like outfit (petticoats are my new fave things, by the way) + a diy pumpkin mask + an empty block of land which has been empty for so long i could just set camp and attempt to adversely possess it. Sorry, just let slip a lame law joke. Pumpkins in my hair, a creepy spider i made sure i continually held onto just so i don’t forget it’s fake (you don’t want to know how many times i’ve been scared by it – even worse when it was me who bought it for my sister) + imaginary bats = a sweet little aussie halloween outfit shot in happy, bright sunlight.
So to those who do celebrate it, happy Halloween!
And to those who commence the spectacularly stressful week of vce exams and in my case, uni exams this week – good luck. “It always seems impossible until it is done”

wearing: vintage straw hat, Dotti denim jacket, bow back floral dress c/o ClubCouture, ASOS bow belt, bag c/o Chicwish, khaki socks & Urban Outfitters pocket boots

Don’t you love it when you’re browsing through pages of dresses online and then you click through a dress because it looks pretty on the front, only to realise that it’s got an even more amazing back? This happened to me when i was looking at this dress. I first fell in love with the casual t-shirt front and lightweight look of it only to click through to realise it has an open bow back! I can’t get enough of plain fronts and exciting backs (i’ve got a few more dresses i’ve bought, two of which are essentially the same open back style but in different colours). Pretty much fallen in love with open back dresses and anything with interesting back details! And you’ll probably be really excited to hear that this dress is now less than half price in the ClubCouture sale section – found out just as i was browsing through to find you guys the link (since i always seem to get emails asking me for direct links).. so you’re in luck!
Anyway i paired the florals with a denim jacket i’ve owned for probably four years now and still wear of course. Don’t you just love it when you own a piece you wear year after year? Feels so good. As well as a embroidered tassel bag that i love so much and well i think i just in some 70s mood. And i can’t get over my vintage straw hat too :) 

These photos were taken by my friend bc at carlton gardens (thanks so much bc!). We saw three wedding shoots happening on that day and chatted it up with a friendly old couple who ran a cadillacs hire business and because i just can’t get over the fabulousness of these 1950s cars.. meet mel & shirl, the couple who run the company. They asked me if i was married (haha). I told them i was 19. BC snapped a few photos of their cars. And i desperately concluded i need to hire one for something! I mean, how can you say no to a rocket looking car?!
