F l o r e n c e !

F l o r e n c e, LIVE !

I think Florence Welsh is one amazing lady. I love her music, not to mention her style!
She has beautiful stage presence, often adorning her microphone and drums with cool is that!? She also has wonderful fashion sense, I mean just look at the outfit she's wearing in these videos.

These are live, acoustic versions of two of my favourite Florence And The Machine songs. They are a little bit simpler sounding than the versions on the record which is what I like about them.
Isn't she magical???

K i p p e r !

K i p !

Meet the newest member of my family!

My mum surprised me with him today! I have been pestering her for another dog for ages, my other dog, Max, has been lonely since our old dog, Rosie died a couple of years back. :(

So today my mum came home from my grandmas house (the one I was at earlier last week) and said "Loren go look in the car, your grandma got max a new bed" and what did I find?
A beautiful apricot Moodle puppy sitting on max's new bed!

A moodle is a maltese x toy poodle and he is small enough to put in my shoes ( I know, I've tried)
My parents got him for me as a late graduation present, and I think he's just about the best present I've ever recieved! He is so sweet. He is just as playful and he is cuddly! Speaking of such, I think I'll go cuddle him now!

au revoir!

A (winter-y) kind of s u m m e r outfit !

I wore this a couple of days ago. It has been really, really hot here in Sydney but now we have hit a little bit of a cold snap (and by that I mean a pleasant 25 degrees, thank god!). This skirt is one of my favourites, I think its one of the best things I've found at thrift store. It's maroon with small, shiny polka dots all over also has a built in petticoat and a beaded hem!

In case anyone was interested, I had a great time at my grandmother's house at the coast! Everyday was spent at the beach or in the pool... or canoeing on the river. Such a good place to spend all those hot summer days!

au revoir!

Hannah Muller

H a n n a h M u l l e r !

Is one beautiful artist. She is a lovely Swedish girl who draws the most delicate and intricate drawings of models and people who inspire her. I think her drawings are just beautiful! Can you just imagine one of her prints up on your wall? amazing!

au revoir!

see ya!

A u r e v o i r !
I am going away for a couple of weeks, on and off.
First I will be going to my grandmas beach house on the central coast--- nice, chilled beach times. Excited! Then I will be going for a road trip of sorts with my three best friends, Kate, Izzie and Thirza. We will be going to a beach side location also.
I will be pretty much out of internet range, but I will try to do at least one or two posts a week...
see you all soon!

P r e s e n t s !

Although Christmas was a little while ago, I thought I would preview some of the lovely things I received. I am so lucky to get these amazing presents!

1. Vera Wang 'Princess perfume. This is my favourite perfume, I was running out so I needed a replacement! 2. I got Virginia Woolf's novel " A room of one's own" from my best friend Kate. I've had a deep love for Virginia Woolf ever since I read 'Mrs Dalloway' so I wanted to read more of her work. 3. Journal from my parents- its amazing, it has a deer on it!

3. My "creepy doll bag" as my brother so lovingly refers to it. He gave it to me for Christmas and it is such a cute tote bag, perfect for university. 4. A Speakerbox. I first saw these in Frankie magazine a little while ago and thought they were such great speakers!

5. Paul + Joe cat lipstick. I bought these for myself because I just love them so much. The cats are too funny and the covers are so pretty! The shades are nice, too. They are sheer, yet shiny which is nice for me as I don't wear much lipstick.

Hope you guys got some lovely things, too.
Au revoir!

H a i r s p i r a t i o n !
I am feeling long, wavy hair right about now...
for a long time I have been thinking about chopping my hair to a mid length but after seeing pictures like these, I think I'll postpone the chopping for a while!

au revoir!

Asos s p r i n g 2 o 1 1

A s o s !

I've been quite in love with for ages now. They have some lovely brands like TBA and the ASOS brand itself has some great pieces. The label have many adaptations of big name designer pieces at much more affordable prices which is excellent for those on a student budget, much like myself. This collection is ASOS's spring 2011 collection and I think it's great!
My favourite look is the one above- I can't wait for the collection to launch on the site so I can buy that dress! I love the asymmetrical neckline and the thin one-shoulder. I also love the juxtaposition of the black segments and the yellow well as the large pleats.
The collection is split up into a few sections as seen on Refinery 29 including a 'costa rica' section that I am not so fond of...I think I like the nude looks best (seen below).
However, what I like best of all about this collection is the styling. The models cropped, messy hair and the olive socks/leopard print heels accent the clothes well, creating a simple, clean look to the whole collection. I also love the nude colours of the dresses being paired with splashes of colour like the navy blue cropped jacket or the salmon belt in the bottom left picture.
Anyone know when the collection is for sale?

W a n d e r B I R D

W a n d e r B I R D !

Any long-time readers of the blog will know that I think Lula magazine is just about the best thing. Ever. I am kind of sad that I haven't had a chance to get issue 11, but I've been stalking all the editorials online, so I suppose I've gotten a little bit of my Lula fix. I love the fact that the Mulleavey sisters, the geniuses behind Rodarte guest edited the issue, despite the fact that I've read a lot of online reviews that said they found the issue anticlimactic...sad.
Judging by this beautiful editorial "Wanderbird" Lula still hasn't lost its romantic, mysterious, ethereal and dark way making it still number one in my book!

J a n u a r y dream o u t f i t s !

These are some dream outfits I created...I am really looking forward to wearing more clog-type shoes, crystal jewelery and feminine dresses. The Sydney weather is completely crazy at the moment. For the past four or five days it has been around thirty degrees, proper summer weather...but then this cold (and by 'cold' I mean non-summer) twenty degree weather follows. It's annoying that it kind of breaks the summer mood, but it is great because it gives reason to wear chunky knit sweaters with shorts, or a summer-ey dress with stockings.
