Hello! So my second collection for Inner Circle is here and it’s all about the woodland vibes.
Forests, nature and love. These are things that have been constantly inspiring and fuelling my woodland collection this year. I’ve always been a bit of a nature lover. When I was younger, I used to love going to the park to take photos with the beautiful spring flowers that would decorate the garden bed in my local park. The smell of fresh air was always my favourite smell and sunshine always made me happy. When I was 17, I attended a wedding for the first time. Ever. In fact I did not even know the couple well. The groom who I had met briefly, was the son of one of my parents’ friends. But the wedding was amazing. It was quite an ordinary wedding but it was from that day on that I fell in love with weddings and everything hopelessly romantic. And it was my love for nature and romantic things that gave me the passion and inspiration to create what i create.

Yay! I finished uni! Okay, fine. Not my degree, just for this year. I still have at least 3.5 years to go haha.. damn. Anyway i’ve received a few lovely parcels in the mail recently, can’t wait to show you guys as soon as my exams over (17th November’s my last exam for this semester – can’t wait). Among these are a fabulous bohemian bag that is big enough to use for uni, my new favourite skirt silhouette, floral corduroy overalls and a couple of new found designers to add to my favourite list. Just you wait and see!
This outfit.. how did it form? Well i threw my clutch on my bed where my skirt was laying casually and coincidentally with this stripey top i wear too much and bam! Outfit inspiration! Don’t you love it when this happens? I’ve realised a lot of the time when i wear colour blocking combinations i always like to break it up with a striped top to make it less.. in your face haha.

Anyway, have you guys heard of Frocktober? Frocktober is an effort to raise awareness and funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, simply by wearing frocks! It was started up by a little group of fantastic people in our very own geelong :) Some of my favourite bloggers (I’m sure you know them already) – Bonnie from Flashes of Style, Tieka from Selective Potential and Sushi from Le Blog de Sushi are all taking part. Bonnie & Tieka are spreading awareness for the ModCloth campaign where 20% of every Frocktober dress sold this month goes to OCRF. Fellow Melburnian, Sushi is wearing a frock 5 days a week for it, you can donate to her here! And me? I guess i’m just spreading some awareness :)

I’ve never really been a pet person. When i was younger, i used to have the biggest dog phobia. In early primary school, students used to bring their pets to school and we’d sit in a circle and pass the dog/cat/rabbit/bird(or maybe not bird) around. Whilst everyone was happily patting the little furry things i would sit there and have a full blown heart attack. My poor poor five year old soul. I don’t know why i was scared of pets, or animals in general. It might have been because I had never had a pet at home or been near any animals prior to having one shoved right in front of my face at school. Or it could just have been because i was quite small and perhaps the little puppies looked threatening.
Fast track to 2011. What’s my view on pets? I LOVE THEM. Okay, i’ll admit. Hyperactive dogs still really freak me out. Also, dogs that are bigger than about 40 cm tall also freak me out. Also, territorial cats really make me want to hide behind a bed. But hey, i really, really, really want a king charles spaniel or pomeranian cross! Now that’s some change in attitude. Anyway, what was i saying? Oh yeah. I just wanted to point out that the cat that got into these photos was really unfriendly. It kept giving me the evil glare and it pranced around like it owned the place. Okay, fine I was in an driveaway/alley that may or may not have been private ground but man, this cat was scary. Just check out it’s alien glare above!!! I felt like it was going to jump up and attack!
Oh and the clothes. I’m wearing many a shade of army/camouflage/khaki/beige. A fabulous anorak that finally fits. (Last time i bought one from Forever 21 and it was a little bit too loose). I’m really sorry but i think it’s sold out on ClubCouture now, but hey, check out their sale
section and you may forgive me.. Some john lennon sunnies
which probably make me a bit too cool than my geeky self haha but damn i love them so much! My ever so trusty vintage brown leather boots that are so scratched and scraped that they might have to retire soon. Some gorgeous khaki ripped denim shorts and a boho beaded top
. Oh and people ask me about my lipsticks quite often. This one’s called ‘sultry sienna’ (lol) from maybelline.
