Erick and I went for a waltz down the Torrens River in the CBD one day, and I very nearly got eaten by one of those evil, evil black swans. Those things are vicious, evil creatures – they are even ‘danger’ colours, black and red. I hate them. While Erick was taking the main image of me, swan swam right up to the edge and I STILL MAINTAIN that if I hadn’t jumped away so quickly, HE WOULD HAVE EATEN MY LEGS OFF.
Which would have been very sad, because my shoes are one of my favourite finds ever. I have received so many compliments on them, and they cost me $15 from Big W. I have been looking for a specific wedge sneakers for a while – I really needed all-black ones, and I could only find multi-coloured previously – and it’s super bizarre I found my perfect ones in Big W!
I have to give huge thank yous for the rest of the outfit.
Firstly, to General Pants Co.. This Evil Twin muscle tee is one of my favourite shirts to wear, the print/colour is girly and cute enough to wear with anything, but the muscle tee cut is super boyish – I love it. Huge thanks to Jaharn for hooking me up with the goods!
Secondly, this skirt was a Christmas present from my mum. I KNOW RIGHT, HOW COOL IS MY MUM. She has pretty good taste in choosing quirky clothes for me, and she found this skirt in the racks at Ally Fashion. Thanks mum! If you have a chance to visit the newer one in the Myer Centre, I highly recommend it. It’s a mainstream chainstore, complete with loud dance music and a lot of 14 year olds, but if you can stand that, go search the sale racks – they have some excellent stuff, and great basics. And it’s much cheaper than Supré, and the staff are much nicer and attentive than Supré too.
Thirdly, I have to thank my best friend, Jake Bley. This clutch is the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M candywrapper clutch. If you know my blog, you know I live in Australia. H&M doesn’t exist here, or ship here. Jake recently moved to New York, and I called him (possibly in the wee hours of the morning) begging him to try to find me an item from the collection. He went to three different H&M’s in NYC, and in the end, he literally fought a woman, to get me this clutch. The sentence ‘I flew from Australia for this!’ was literally said – a slight exaggeration of the truth maybe, but he loves me that much. So thank you Jake, it is one of my most prized possessions, and I love you forever and I love you I love you I love you.
Huge thanks again to Erick Watson for his excellent photography!
