A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

On Saturday I went to revise for my up coming tests. Some how, after hours of revision and very tired brain cells, me and my friends managed to maneuver our way to the shopping centre. This was actually quite great because there is nothing like retail therapy (besides reading and art but those are different satisfactions that come under the same genre to me). On this spree we managed to end up in a designer shoe store and I managed to start a topic on how I dislike cloggs and how overrated they are. In my attempt to convince my friends to agree... I tried on a pair and that was the downfall to my debate. I couldn't find any that were hideous looking so I just tried on any - they looked rather similar to the ones in the picture above. To keep the story short, once a pair of cloggs like these are on your feet I guarantee you will be satisfied... there is actually a place were comfort and your feet looking spectacular meet (other than wedges) and cloggs are that equilibrium. Sometimes it is great to have a change of heart. :)
Title by James Dent
"Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose."
I was thinking over last year and I still believe Louis Vuittons 2009 fall collection is something to remember, it is not 'extra-ordinary' but it is something that will never go out of date for me. The main reason I love it is because I don't usually find a whole catwalk collection that I wouldn't mind being my wardrobe - it is usually just a minute amount that I would take if I could but this is a collection I would put in a suitcase and run off with. I actually have an image of one of the dresses in this collection plastered against my collage of pages from magazines.
Title is a qoute from the television show The Wonder Years
This is the image of the first vintage dress I have ever bought (on the model). It's from the 1950's and I bought it from an online store called 'The Ragged Priest'. You should really check it out! Not only is everything in the store vintage but everything is recycled including the packaging. And what made everything even sweeter was the little vintage postcard that came with it that I can either recycle or send back, when I have a few more, in exchange for something else... I think I might make a collage.
