celine me alone.

Current/Elliot polka dot jeans (similar here and here)// Celine Me Alone tee // Tony Bianco Karissa heels // Stylestalker jacket // Luv AJ necklace 

Just a quick post before I head off to bed. Uni just started again (third week already!) and combined with work, there really aren't enough hours in the day. But who am I kidding? Class is just another time for more online shopping.

maison scotch spring 2012

I'm getting hit by the winter blues pretty hard. All I want to do right now is to (private) jet off to somewhere exotic and that requires no more than one thin cotton layer.

neon lust.

neon love.

I was pretty much just minding my own business when I innocently opened an ill-fated email from net-a-porter. I thought it would be safe considering the fact that its sales were over and I'd done enough damage. But nope, boy was I wrong. I was savagely assaulted by a neon thing in the shape of an Acne beanie. It was instantaneous and all consuming lust. The kind where consequences be damned, you'll explain it to your girlfriend/boyfriend the next day but right now at this moment you had to give into your primal desires.

But I'm stronger than that. 

So instead of actually buying the beanie (and fyi- I've been on the hunt for a neon beanie for the longest time) I bought it virtually through polyvore. It's a complex relationship that I have with polyvore. That bitch is really good at making me buy more. Really good.

But I really can't justify 83 pounds on a beanie. 
I know you're not supposed to put a price on love, but really this is just lust.


ps. if you know where I can get a cheaper option of a neon beanie, please save my wallet and let me know!

I'll pick you up when you're down

Sportsgirl dress // Subtitled jacket // Mulberry clutch // Kenneth Jay Lane tiger bracelet // Topshop Ashely shoes

How sunny is this dress? I'm having the biggest fascination with yellow at the moment; it really cheers me up on a dull day. Which this day turned out to be, it was all sunshines and lollipops in the morning so le bf and I decided to drive to have brunch near the beaches. Cutest place called Three Blue Ducks and there steak sandwiches were definitely worth the wait on the table (you'd know if you follow my instagram @thechicndamned). But the day was filled with two fails on my part; I forgot my camera (which resulted in the iPhone photos a la above) and the sun decided to play a very intense game of hide'n'seek after brunch. The wind picked up and all of a sudden my outfit became very weather inappropriate...but what else is new?

madrid villa - isabel lopez-quesada

photos courtesy of architectural digest

I'm a huge closeted fan of interior design; I wanted to be an interior designer after I did work experience at an architectural firm and decided that I loved the inside of the houses more than the actual houses. I love how home-y this villa is, the careful mixture of colours and textures. I have to admit, my favourite space is that amazing bathtub and those windows. Adore.

striped sunset.

asos neon pink jeans // h&m sweater // saba leather jacket // charles & keith boots // sportsgirl clutch // bardot scarf

I haven't been feeling the best this past week, there's this nasty flu that's been going around and I fell like a domino piece. I wore this outfit when I thought I was well enough to leave the house my bedroom (I was wrong) so I stuck to basics and what ended up to be mostly high street pieces. The ASOS jeans add the perfect touch of bright to an otherwise monochrome palette, I'd originally wore them with thigh-high boots when I was out that morning but I was too lazy to pull them on again. The jeans don't have the greatest cut nor does it have great quality but I have definitely gotten my moneys back with the amount of times I wear it. I couldn't really justify the purchase of a more high end brand at the time but now I wish I had- they've quickly become a staple! But I made up for it by purchasing a pair of 7FAM neon yellow jeans during the Shopbop sale, hopefully you'll see it soon!

How amazing is the new lookbook from the girls at Stylestalker?
A right mixture of sexy, rock, glamour and stripes.
I'm loving the white shirt with thigh-high boots. DROOL. And those embroidered pants? COME TO MAMA!
I love seeing Aussie labels do well and I wish them the absolute best!

trench coat friday.

Mango denim shirt // Current Elliot polka dot jeans // vintage belt // Burberry trench // Mulberry alexa clutch // Michael Kors oversized rose watch // Alexander Wang parchment joan pumps

Happy Bastille Day!
It's only right that I wear the quintessential trench coat - even if Burberry is as english as it gets.
The trench is the perfect coat for a sunny winter's day and whilst it's usually worn with a striped tee, I paired it with its younger sister in the pattern family. Polka dots, denim and more denim? Nice.
