I haven't been op shopping in so long, i was really missing it. So i decided to go down to some of my favourite vintage stores on crown st after work and managed to find these 2 pieces at a very low price! I am one happy camper.

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine asked me if i could help her out with a shoot for her uni assignment. The shoot was to be inspired by a culture and she decided to do a Spanish theme. On the day we didn't really have a location picked out and drove around aimlessly for a while until we decided to check out one of the local churches. It ended up having quite a few places we could shoot around. Thankfully it was desserted that day as i tried to complete some super quick costume changes behind one of the boulders. Definately not the type of outfits i would usually wear but we had a lot of fun shooting!

One of the things that makes me so excited like a kid in a candy store would have to be bargain hunting. Especially now that i am trying to be all responsible and save up. I was so excited to find these incredibly adorable shorts on sale for $15! I've only worn them once and have gotten quite a few compliments already, i may just invest in a cream pair as well...

I haven't had a chance to do an outfit post for a while so i took a few quick snaps before leaving the house to grab some lunch with a friend. This weather is a total contradiction as it is sunny, hot and humid one minute and then pouring rain and storming the next.

Australia's newest online boutique has just launched and if the hype is to be believed it is going to be a huge player in the retail market.
The ICONIC is now open for business specialising in clothing and footwear. It caters to both men and women and has been guided by Sarah Gale, which you may remember as one of the judges on Australia's project runway.
“I’m so excited to be part of this new venture. It’s wonderful to be able
to showcase the best Australian talent and international labels on this new platform. Online
retailing is definitely the future within this industry,” Sarah said.
The ICONIC offers free express shipping on all orders and an incredible 3-hour super express option for sydneysider's based in the metropolitan areas.
Currently stocked are the labels Ellery, Shakuhachi, Ginger & Smart, Senso, Minty Meets Munt, RMK, Shona jay, NEUW and many many more.
I like the balance of Australian designers and the range in price points, as it has something for everybody. But my main admiration is for the promise of 3-hour express shipping, now that is something to look forward to.
Take a look at the site at http://www.theiconic.com.au/. They also have a facebook account, twitter, blog and tumblr so get following and stay up to date!
I have been so busy lately that i haven't really had a chance to update the blog over the past few weeks.
A couple of weeks ago i held a stall at the Bondi markets for Esoteric Wardrobe.
It was a beautiful sunny day and alot of people came down and purchased some vintage and some new pieces. I am thinking about holding another stall over the summer but this weather is so unpredictable it is hard to pick a date!
Here are just a few snaps i took with my iphone on the day.

Just when i thought my love affair with Asos could not get any deeper, i receive a parcel from them simply 6 days after placing my order. Now that is some serious speedy service considering it had to be shipped from the uk and i placed my order over a weekend. In that parcel was this lovely purple rugged stone ring which is lovely. I am also waiting for another package this week....postman must be getting sick of me.

We all have those pieces in our wardrobe that we absolutely love. Sometimes they may cost a small fortune and sometimes they are absolute bargains that you cannot believe you came across. These are a few of my all time wardrobe pieces that i have gotten alot of wear out of. I found this vintage chanel flap bag in an op shop and fell in love as soon as i set my eyes upon it. I have had it for a few years now and i know i will not be letting go of it anytime soon, if ever. I also wear my YSL arty oval ring constantly and am desperately wanting to purchase another in the turquoise. My chloe sunglasses are a new purchase and i know i will be wearing them non stop over the summer period. I'm sure you all have anumber of items you are obsessed about just like myself.
