A few months back, we had driven out to this lookout to see the full moon rise, only to find out the gates would close at 5pm, which is basically when the moon starts to rise during the Winter. So it was a failed attempt. But I'd always been curious to see what the place was like and the weekend gave us amazing Winter weather.

It's amazing to be able to see a glimpse of the high rise city buildings and The Harbour Bridge in the distance. I can only imagine how amazing a full moon would look in this lookout.

Lately I can't seem to stop wearing these converse sneakers. They are probably the oldest thing I own and they never really fail me. Plus I never thought I would think of white pants/jeans as a wardrobe staple. I'm glad they have been very forgiving, stain wise, I always stain light coloured bottoms. White jeans are a great look for any season, but during Winter just gives an outfit a crisp fresh look.

Have a great week!

FOR SALE: Balenciaga Velo in Hamilton Leather

 Balenciaga Velo in Hamilton Leather.

Designer colour is Gris Poivre, as most Balenciaga colours, it's a real chameleon. Depending on lighting the colour varies from a light elephant grey to almost a nutty brown grey.

This leather is pretty amazing and extremely sturdy. It's more of a pebbled leather. The Holiday Hamilton leather was a limited edition range. It basically strays from the normal Agneau Lambskin leather that Balenciaga's are usually famous for. I have the normal Balenciaga leather and both of these are pretty impressive.

I am only really selling this as I have not used it in a very long time. It's sad seeing it just sitting there unused.

Item has stayed in it's dustbag, stuffed sitting on a shelf, to keep it in pristine condition.

Item has obviously been used but wear is not noticeable at all due to the type of leather.

I do not come from a pet-free home.

Please note that this is a PRE-OWNED item and is NOT BRAND NEW.

Parcel may be packaged in recycled packaging to save you from shipping cost.

Will send via REGISTERED Post within AUSTRALIA only. If you wish for Express Post, you will be charged accordingly, so please email me for a quote.

Coated Wine

Just a quick hello to say Winter is finally in full force (hallelujah!)!!! Though I am uncomfortably freezing, I love it! If I could drape myself in leather, I would! I'm only really just missing a pair of leather pants, one day I will own one, but for now I will have to settle for the leather look. I am especially loving all the coated denims. They have a leathery look, but with the ease and comfort of jeans.

These wine coloured jeans are from Cotton On. I am really loving their newer skinny jeans range. They are vertically-challenged friendly, in that they are actually skinny legged all the way through. Most of the skinnies I've purchased, when hemming, I've had to actually taper the legs so they hug my ankles. The pitfalls of being short, le sigh!

You can't see the front pocket zips here but these are the Zippy Coated in Wine, they also come in black and they are ankle grazers. I love love love this colour too, it's a perfect Winter colour. I also stumbled upon their Basic Tees range called The One, they are so comfy and it might sound ridiculous, but it is so hard to find crew neck tees that fit perfectly, so these might actually be...The One!

Happy Weekend! Hurrah!

Winter's Beach

In Australia, we are pretty blessed with the best weather. This is how the beach looks the day before Winter officially starts. Yes, I am rugged up, but even on cold windy days, the beach is pretty amazing.

I grew up down the South Coast of Sydney and basically all my life, I lived a good 5 minutes drive from any beach and now it's about an hour trek to even get close to one, so I really miss this.

I was visiting family further down south and they honestly have the best life. I have always loved the hustle and bustle of the city, but lately, I've started to wonder how serene it would be to live in a small quiet town with the ocean at your front door. It kills me everytime I visit and they tell me how they've just spotted whales earlier that morning, something I have always wanted to see!
