I’ve been back in Sydney for just over a week now and what have I done? Nothing :p That’s what heat does to you, it makes you lazy, well, that’s my excuse anyway. I’ve caught up with family and friends, caught up on all the new restaurants and shops that opened up while I was away. I’ve missed the Sydney vibe and you know what I’m almost surprised at how stylish and hip Sydney-siders are! How quickly one forgets. I’m surprised to see the amazingly bad fashion in department stores and the amazingly good fashion in small boutiques. The distance of Australia from the rest of the world serves both as an advantage and disadvantage. On one hand we get trends a few seasons late or they don’t come to our shores at all, on the other hand our laid back lifestyle and the lack of trends create something completely unique. I am so happy to see the smaller and the budding Australian labels doing their own things and doing it so well.

I’m glad to see vintage is still big but not done in obvious ways, I don’t see girls wearing grandma dresses for the sake of wearing vintage anymore. Let’s be honest, not many girls can pull off a vintage sack…

I took a walk around Surry Hills today and a few quick snaps. Summer it makes you dress lazy but lazy doesn’t have to be boring.

I used to be completely against denim on demin, as in a denim jacket with jeans, on girls or guys. However I think I’ve changed my mind, I think when it’s done well it can be a great look. And today, I got two looks that double up on denim and I got to say both look great.

I’ve recently become a huge fan of denim shirt with jeans (see second photo), so I’ve been scouting the perfect denim shirt, but I simply can’t bear the idea of paying over $50 for a new one when I know I can find a nice worn in second hand one. Well guess I got some scouting to do then.

Happy hunting, happy summer!

Sweet winter - Williamsburg

I’m sure you had lost all hope on me, didn’t you? Heh, I knew it! But alas, I’m back after 2 months absence, I am very sorry, but sometimes you just got to concentrate on 1 thing at a time. That 1 thing was traveling for me, for the last 2 months I’ve seen many cities in Europe, the States, Canada, Mexico and Cuba. The amazing cultures in Europe, the energy State side, the nature in Canada, the amazing handcrafts in Mexico and the architecture in Cuba have all inspired me very much and it’ll all feed back into my creative outlets. So… in short, you’ll be enjoying a better blog :p

Right now I am living it up in NYC, that’s right, I got 2 more weeks here and hope to do a lot more style hunting, though I gotta say, this ain’t easy work in the bitter cold winds… nah uh! But someone’s got to do the job. Today I took a stroll in Williamburg and look whom I found! I love her hat, her shoes and the 3 nude shaded items popping the whole outfit. Liking it!

Speaking of Beacon’s Closet, I went there today, wow! So much treasure here, it was towards the end of my day and I just couldn’t be bothered to look through the huge amount of clothes. However, I did come away with a mint Coach trench long cape for a steal at $65, holy moly! I think I love Williamburg now. Oh you know, I only bought another skirt, vest and 2 pairs of shoes there today.
