Today is officially the last time that I'll ever have to go to school... tears filled eyes ( kinda).
The last time that I'll ever have to wear a school uniform and the last time that I'll ever be in the same class as my besties...

Its been a while, I know. I've just finished my exams and I'm busy completing my formal dress and trying to pack up my room for next year... and guess what!!! I got a mac book pro! 15inch! I'm super excited as this is my first laptop and the first time I've actually used a mac. I'm not good with technology so its taking me a while to get use to this from my regular PC.
Anyway, Im so glad New Zealand is finally moving towards summer so I can get out my summer flats! check out these cuties... there's a lot going on in one shoe but thats just the beauty of them!
check out this gorgeous silk top that I stole from my mother... hehe
expect more from me soon and I shall keep you updated on my formal dress

I feel more like a cat with each passing day, I sleep, eat, study, eat, sleep, eat, study... although I realise that cats don't "study", I cant help but think my daily routine has somehow metamorphosed into a more feline like routine... I think I'm going crazy... in a more suffering in silence way

just putting on a happy face
wearing a chiffon tunic from China
vintage Moschino pants
heels from last years formal
geek glasses
I love these shoes, but they're not the easiest to walk in, especially in winter... I have to walk extra slowly and carefully in order to avoid falling over and cracking my head open
The shape of these are also really good for elongating your legs which is also a bonus pour moi!

I've been dying to wear this gorgeous vintage dress ever since I bought it a month ago, the length is perfect when I wear heels, and it gives me an illusion of height which is exactly what I like to see!

When ever I put it on I feel like a glamorous milk maid, I immediately get an urge to grab a bucket and go milk a cow...
jacket made by moi
siren shoes
vintage belt
random necklaces
The weird thing about this jacket is that the material only cost me $9 a meter, apart from the satin used on the lapels, however we had to make pants as well as part of the unit for school, so I decided to make a pair of satin pants, the material for that cost $19 a meter and I have to say the end product isn't very flattering. I guess expensive fabric don't always produce beautiful pieces... though that could just be my sewing skills...

I'm a simple gal with a simple taste and this season's Burberry has totally done it for me! simple and classic its pieces you can keep in your wardrobe for an eternity.

and who doesn't love draping!?
or fur or sparkles or candy colours or shruggy shocks in heels!?!

I'm totally in love with this coat! the sparkles and silhouette is just stunning, kind of like those lollies that pop in your mouth! Talking about lollies, that reminds me of Christmas chocolate... mmmm, Magic Elves...

mint green isn't easy to wear, but i would if it was mine!

As a result of being vertically challenged, i often resort to heels as a means of "cheating" genetics. I probably don't make a lot of sense right now, due to excessive cramming

check out my hair! I've never had my hair fly like that before! ever!
anyway, today was the last day of high school for me, for ever! tears... but that also means exams are looming... shot me now

this afternoon i was playing around with draping... subconsciously I was cursing myself for not studying

My attempt at jewellery making. This is the product of a 3mins exercise which composed of me combining different elements of many jewellery, and compounding them together to make a pair of earrings.
This was all done on Sunday as a part of my "avoid studying so procrastinate plan".

I've bought alot of new stuff this week, its been a tough week so some shopping therapy was definitely needed!
New belt, from Dotti- only $15, so couldn't resist

New cardie/ wrap/ shaw/ thing- very comfortable, you might remember it from a couple weeks back. I discovered this piece shopping with a friend, saw it again this week, it was on sale for $50 so I had to have it
oh yea and new sunnies, it was 2 for $20 so my friend and I went halves. I pretty much spent $70 on crap so that's not very comforting right now... oh well money is just numbers

HELLO check out these puppies! wow love, love, love Alexander McQueen, the sock embroiled detail is amazing and adds a dynasty touch.

Here are some snap shots from BLACK magazine, one of my fav NZ fashion and photography mags, which I've just recently discovered while cleaning the magazine shelves at work.
I'm really into the military look at the moment, don't quite know if its me though, but i really like the sexy feminine twist added to this look
Zucca dress, Alexander McQueen shoes
and last but not least, Vivenne Westwood belted boots... speechless, apart from... birthday gift???

An another unusually hot day in Dunedin, I'm beginning to think that it might be possible for me to get a tan before I dash back to the sub zero temperatures in China... shiver

I'm wearing:
vintage blazer of my Mothers
hand painted silk singlet by Moi
vintage pleated skirt
Country Road shoes
