cradle of love

                                                                         Purchased from (much love!)

Vintage 1980's cropped black & blue jacket. "So ridiculously atrocious it's FABULOUS" my best friend declared... And he would know.

I haven't had the chance to rock this out & about just yet, but I can't imagine wearing it with anything but black. The sapphire blue really POPS (...along with those shoulders).

Sleeves rolled up, please.

dances with skeletons

I'm spending more and more time trawling markets + op shops lately. This crisp white paper-thin find is collared, long and fitted - but still droops and hangs in all the right places. Oh so versatile. Outfit coming soon (and possible alterations such as unstitching the pockets slightly so they hang off just that little bit more)... I'm thinking half tucked into skinny jeans (or snakeskin!), chunky jewellery + slouchy boots. Rock & roll pirates ahoy.

days like these

Still hot on the heels of summer,  and I'm already stocking up for the cold + grey winter days which are still some time away. Maybe I should look into airconditioning ABSOLUTLY EVERYWHERE I GO so I never ever have to take this bad boy off my back.

Piper Lane military blazer - soft as velvet, a sharp tailored cut, just the right length, and warm to boot. The incredibly light rayon fabric could mean you mistake it for some form of a cardi, and it'll be sure to make a perfect transition right on into spring.

Undying love that fits like a glove @ $110.

you're stuck in the past, man

'09 ready-to-wear Pucci, I dream of you at night. Structured satin, cinched waists, sharp shoulders, and aztec island cool. I may very well die without this violent violet high-waisted futuristic mini... A black ballet leotard underneath, statement Roberto Cavalli necklace (see below), some chunky ass heels... and I'll be footloose and fancy-free.

Oh Jeffrey Campbell, how I adore thee!

If this ain't love I don't know what is.
