Weird Obsession

I am weirdly obsessed with a show that started not long ago. It's a US show, Life On Mars. I can't stop watching it!

Changes


A change is in the air... I've applied for a job in the centre of Australia, beautiful Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock. I've lived in and near Melbourne all my life and although I'll miss the nightlife, the coffee and the fashion, my career beckons. A grand adventure awaits me and I hope with all my heart that this job becomes mine. Will update you all soon!

The Divine Kirkwood

Think I may need to make a designer investment this season. I never really want to purchase designer heels THAT much as I usually doubt the quality matches the price. And generally, as in the case of my Celyn B Gucci knockoffs, the knockoffs tend to actually be an improved version. But Kirkwood just finishes everything off so damn well.

Amazing inspiration

Gareth Pugh new season, I WANT!!!!



PHI RESORT 2009 Sandals - these look a lot like Ann Demeulemeester's heels of this season. The open toe, buckle half way up the leg look is REALLY going to be a big hit this winter in Australia.

An effort to be personal

In an effort to keep this blog personal, and to maybe clear my head, I wanted to let my lovely readers know that I'm well on my way to being romantically happy. Back in August I broke up with my long time boyfriend; we lived together and were so in love, that we never realised how badly we treated each other. Now a long time on, he has a new girlfriend (who will never replace me, which is a healthy thing I've realised) and I am dating happily, meeting people who suit me just that little bit more. I'll always believe in love and I hope that you do too.

The proliferation of young bloggers

I've been thinking about this for some time, and thought maybe I'd write about it. A lot of bloggers that post often and receive huge amounts of attention for that, are very young. No doubt these young women (and a few men) are talented, but what differences are there between the proliferation of these bloggers and the few older women (and men) who also write a blog, popular or not.

In my mind, and this will sound rude but it really isn't, younger bloggers, those still in high school, have more time and less responsibilities (including maybe not working at all), which allows more time for these pursuits. In addition, all income can be spent on fashion including the obvious apparel and accessories, but also magazines and makeup.

Those older, in their twenties will find many competitors for their times. Relationships, work, rent and bills all take up our time, and so time spent on our blogs might be difficult to find. I guess my point is that having days and days to spend time taking photos of outfits you don't even wear anywhere is easy to do when you have the time. I wish I had more time to make this blog into something more interesting.

I may harp on

Even Vogue (Australia) is on my side these days. In this month's issue they can report that shoes are becoming more and more important in the fashion world.

Manolo Blahnik, the creator of the most prolific shoes that will adorn women's feet while Sex And The City is around, and also may I add, the creator of the most boring shoes on the planet, has been quoted as saying, "I've never seen such ugly shoes in my life" about 2009's footwear.

While shoes are becoming increasingly higher, which is not something I really admire, so too are they becoming more interesting.
