Misguided ghosts

Ray Ban aviators; Witchery cropped angora jumper; J Brand high waist jeans; Wittner desert boots; Lovisa necklace and spiky bracelets; Nixon timeteller

It's funny how certain things act as memory triggers. Certain smells, objects and places have the ability to bring back rushes of feelings, images and smiles.

For me yesterday, it was re-discovering two things:

The Nixon Timeteller my bestie Laura (a.k.a. Make Up Guru) bought me for my birthday all the way from Selfridges in London at the back of my bedside table and remembering the perfect afternoon spent with her at Jones the Grocer, laughing over hilarious stories over multiple burnt coffees and yummy vegan cookies.

The Wittner ankle boots Frankie bought for me as a surprise present last year - he knew I had stopped to look at them in the window every week - so one night, just because, he came into work with a big smile and a big shoebox! I dropped the work I was doing and did a big jump, a scream and gave him a huge hug. Best ever.

I've got you in my clutches

Alexander McQueen Oriental Samurai Skull silk-satin box clutch - NAP

Herve Leger Over-sized cord clutch

Stella Mccartney Falabella citrus-print cotton clutch - NAP

Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton Thai printed silk-satin clutch - NAP

Some very lust-worthy pieces of arm candy that are 100 per cent calf, pony and lamb friendly.

I'm headed to Europe in 23 days (!!!) - I have the feeling that the Stella McCartney citrus clutch in the centre is going to be the perfect travel companion whilst I roam the streets of Paris, Florence and Barcelona.

the good things

Sportsgirl cheesecloth & lace blouse; Basic bandage skirt; Wittner fringe clutch; Christian Louboutin Paola 100 booties

Took these bad boys out for a spin tonight for the first time and the verdict is in: i'm in love. Pretty much the most comfortable pair of heels I have ever worn. This is saying something, as Louboutin shoes are not really known for their wearability as much as they are just known for their aesthetic.

I just got back from backpacking around New Zealand a couple of weeks ago, hence the absence. NZ is such a breathtaking country and the people in it are just so incredibly beautiful and friendly - I've made more amazing and interesting friends in two weeks there than I have in Melbourne over the last year. If you ever get the chance to go, don't even hesitate for a second. You will be blown away, I promise.
