If I was a Rich Girl

I’m guessing you all know from previous posts that I love sequins & I absolutely love leather & so as Gwen Stefani’s song goes “If I was a rich girl….la la la la la” this weekend I would be wearing this glam rock outfit……

Weekend Fun

Leather Jacket – (Gifted) Heeli, Hat & Scarf – Urban Outfitters, Tank & Top – H&M, Leggings – Ambiance, Socks – Snob, Boots – Browns

It’s scary how fast the weekend flies in, Monday arrives far too soon for my liking. These photos were taken on Saturday, myself & my friend Emma were out & about shopping – although we got distracted & ended up taking Street Style photos of fashionalbe ladies along the way, which I will post soon. We hit the town on Saturday night to celebrate Emma’s birthday, lot’s of fun was had! However the full sit down Chinese meal at 3am was quite unnecessary 🙂 Needless to say the party night was followed by a very lazy & chilled Sunday.

I hope you all had a fun weekend.

Bright Lights City Night

Hat & Tank – Urban Outfitters, Faux Fur Jacket, Leather Leggings & Ring – Forever 21, Shoes – Zara, Clutch Bag – Marc Jacobs -Watch – Guess, Bracelets & Silver Rings – Gifted John Rocha

After 2 & 1/2 yrs of city living it is still a novelty for me! I love it for many reasons – everything is at your doorstep, shops, bars, restaurants – no matter what time of day or night the city is always buzzing with festivals, gigs & shows – I love the various street styles – preppy downtown & boho chic on Queen St – I love the mix of cultures, you can visit little Italy, China town & Greek town all in one day – Vintage shops a plenty – The Cityscape, my favourite time is at night when it’s all lit up, absolutely stunning. I wore this outfit to my boyfriends 30th birthday over the weekend, a fun outfit for a fun night out on the town!

Perfect Little Parcels

The contents of our post box is usually pretty uneventful just the usual junk mail, bills & catalogue magazines, the kind of stuff that ends up going straight into the recycling bin…..To my surprise last week was an exception, I found our mail box packed full of treats that made my week!

Wedding Thank You cards from Our Friends

My Urban Outfitters Package – I saw these Antique Door Knobs ages ago in the Queen St shop & since then I regretted not purchasing them. When I saw them online & for sale I couldn’t resist.
I haven’t yet decided whether to use them for hanging my jewelery or as curtain tie-backs in the bedroom….either way I’m so happy to finally have them.

I added these beautiful earrings to my UO order & I wore them this weekend

My 2nd Controller for the Wii finally arrived – my boyfriend & I can now play against each other……let the games begin!!

Loving Lanvin For H&M

I a big fan of Lanvin & head designer Alber Elbaz, unfortunately like a lot of Lanvin Lovers out there…I can only admire from a far! That was until H&M announced Lanvin as their next collaborative designer.
I am so excited to think that  a little Lanvin number could soon be hanging in my wardrobe & like half the world I have been patiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the new collection……Well it’s time, H&M have finally allowed us a sneak peek…..

I selected some of my favourite pieces…….

I absolutely love the Faux Fur Jacket & Vest, the vibrant Pink & Yellow dresses…..who says we can’t add a splash of colour during the festive season!
You can checkout the entire collection (here).  Now the only trouble is finding a spot in the huge queues on Nov 23rd!

Tips to beat the queues are welcome 😉

It’s a Plaid Fad


Shirt – Guess, Tank – H&M, Hat – Vintage, Jeans – Urban Outfitters, Boots – Browns

It’s funny when I think of plaid shirts my mind always flicks back to the early 90s when I was Plaid Shirt Obsessed…..I specifically remember rummaging through my mam & aunts old clothes in my grandparents house & finding a great 70s plaid shirt….I thought all my Christmas’s had come at once, although I don’t think my folks too keen as I wore it to death!……I bought this shirt last year & it’s perfect for winter, warm & comfy with a pop of colour. The hat – I bought in Kensington Market as part of my boyfriends Halloween costume….I’m not the kind of girl who lets a good hat go to waste!

A Little Rock Chic


I’m a rock chick at heart and once I clapped eyes on this faux fur jacket I knew it was meant to be! I paired it with my vintage Rolling Stone T & UO Black Skinnies…..my perfect gig outfit!
