i had to have them

As soon as I saw them, I had to have them. These nine west gladiator wedges are reminiscent (ie. pretty much exact copies but with a wedge) of the Balenciaga gladiator sandals seen on the feet of fashionista's recently. I bought these nine west ones off US ebay in tan, and now I want the black as well as the flat version! they're brilliant.
now all I need is more funds to buy them all...anyone? :D

All things Floral

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I have been insanely battling uni assignments and study for exams, all which are due this week!

But of course, I need some free time and in that free time, I decided I needed to find a nice floral dress online since I have fallen in love with them. Paired with tights and boots or just bare legs and a nice jacket, they look ever so cute and just perfectly chic. I found these gorgeous ones on from the brand Mina, and now can't choose!

And then it was sunny

Today is a nice day. But I'm feeling really uninspired at the moment, so went to Vinnies and bought this coral coloured blazer. I tried and tested boots and wedges, the boots are so warm!
 The wedges are from Country Road. Best $ I ever spent, I wear them everywhere! And the boots were $40 from Target. These photos make me look really short, my brother took them and when he's over 6 foot and taking pictures looking down at me, i suppose i'll look a little short! hehe

The shoes

Whats cookin', Good lookin'

Umm...has anyone noticed how GREAT Gwyneth Paltrow is looking lately?

yay for Gwynny

Winter is coming

So after much inspiration from other fashion blogs, I've decided to start my own.
After much admiration today, I immediately fell in love with these moccasin boots after seeing them on the likes of Nicole Richie and Rachel Bilson.

I. must. have. them. I want the black ones. I think they'd go with more. Shame they don't stock Minnetonka in Australia. Looks like I'll have to satisfy my craving with another online purchase, Doh! I saw a copy in Sportsgirl the other day and I really hope this doesn't mean that everyone will be wearing them. Just like the leather jacket phenomenon!
