Photo-blog: Tuesday (belated)

Manic Panic products arrived - I started bleaching Grace's hair the other night
we left the flash lightening on for 2 hours and it barely did anything
it'd not the product's fault
Grace's hair is just so damn dark!
Going to buy 40vol tonight and continue the process - proper hair blog to follow!
Do I look pissed off? Probably. I went back to the gym in Alex's building and my body isn't thanking me for it

No words. except.
The 2DayFM car chase is so amusing to watch
Don't these people have jobs???

Black leather is back with a vengeance.
I have a whole heap of it rolled up at home left over from my graduate collection.
I made this image to keep me motivated.
I WILL make something awesome with black leather.
It'll be something simple, chic and slightly edgy.

Are you going to wear more black leather or is it not quite your style?

Bean is all grown up

Can you believe it?
The daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love is all grown up!
Frances Bean is starting to look more and more like her mother,
but less trashy

She is beautiful, so let's just hope she steers well clear of the surgeon's knife!

Velvet Appeal

Velvet Appeal
In January I bought these velvet Dr Martens when I was in Melbourne and I thought they were insane

Since then, this mini-trend has blossomed and Topshop have boots and heels in different velvety colours

Jeffrey Campbell has done the Lita in crushed velvet which is kind of epic
Are you going to work this look?

Photo journal

 In no particular order (because that's far too difficult) here is the week that's been
We saw Daniel Merriweather perform an intimate acoustic set at Tone in Surry Hills and it was so amazing
 His voice is so raw and the bottle of Jameson whiskey surely helped.
The guitarist who played with him was so talented and there were also plenty of laughs to be had
 Daniel also spoke about the recent tragedy of Amy Winehouse's death. They were close friends and you could see he was still in intense mourning
 Some random photographer took all her photos at 45 degree angles and she caught me taking it in, and Alex too. I was also with my friend and fellow bandmate Grace and her sister
 Mondays are shit, so this week I vamped it up with the Jeffrey Campbell Everest - I could climb every mountain in these puppies!
 Oh Urban Outfitters how I love thee.
I got a free shipping to Australia coupon and the girls at work and I shopped up a storm from the sale section. I got 2 dresses, 4 or 5 tops, neon socks for summer, 2 necklaces and suede boots (real leather for $19!) all for undfer $150 - insane!
 I tend to take self-portraits at lunchtime
 A workmate informed me I have a doppelganger (via Topshop)
 I really do love him...
 Lime Crime make-up is seriously my latest obsession. I bought the magic dust rainbow and have never looked back! The colours are so vibrant and I get nothing but compliments and a little shock when I wear it (daily) This is their signature colour Lime Criminal
 Justin Hemmes of Ivy fame has bought the excelsior hotel in Surry Hills and turned it from a live music venue into a Mexican/fusion bar + canteen. Alex and I enjoyed some corn chips + guacamole, hot dogs and mini soft tacos with beef and chicken (only $5 each!)
 We went there after band practice - Allyson and Grace couldn't get enough!

So that's it for now...

Colour never dies

Some sweet pastel shades of denim
I'm sure this will filter down to Australia pretty soon
It's a nice alternative to bold colour-blocked denim

Don't get me wrong, I'm loving my Ksubi kolors mid-blue jeans,
but I'd love some pastel skinny crops for Summer

Are you going to wear coloured denim?

Or stick to the usual classic shades?
