Vintage scalloped blazer, Ladakh cobalt skirt, Forcast collared shirt, ANNIEPOPSHOP gold collar necklace, Belt by Sheike, Givenchy Antigona bag in beige, YSL arty ovale ring in green. 

When my grandmother and I lived together, she'd often come into my room and ask me to paint her nails. As a thank you gift she would give me some hair rollers or leave hand-me-downs on my bed from her closet. Although I haven't quite found a use for some of the shoulder padded neons (that she must have kept from her wild child days! haha), there is one bright blue scalloped blazer that I'm beginning to warm up to. I guess it makes this outfit "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" -  thank you grandma :)

For those that have Liked my Facebook page, you may have noticed my recent posts about Joe Button. A few weeks back I attended the Online Retailer Industry Awards and along with the great food and company, I was able to meet some new and amazing people including Melissa and Modi - the girls behind Joe Button.

This week, the M&M gave me the wonderful opportunity of visiting the Joe Button office to catch up over coffee and design my very own shirtdress!

With the Founders of Joe Button, Melissa and Modi. 

In case you haven't heard of Joe Button, they sell custom-fitted men's and women's shirts as well as women's shirtdresses. So if you've been struggling to find the right size and style for workwear then their site lets you design your own shirt/shirtdress by allowing you to mix and match different designs, colours, fabrics and even initial embroidery.

While I was at their office designing my shirtdress, I was able to scour through and then compulsively clean their swatch pile haha. I had such a good morning with the Joe Button team and the fun has only just begun since I'm now eagerly anticipating the arrival of my new shirtdress! I will be able to share it with you once its here and to design your own click here

Another highlight of last week was attending the 18th Biennale of Sydney on Cockatoo Island. Biennale comes around once every two years and it is Australia's biggest festival of contemporary art. Below are glimpses from three of my favourite exhibits.

The ferry to Cockatoo island is free and there is no charge to see the exhibits so if you have a spare weekend to soak in some some sun and contemporary art, hop on that ferry!

I hope that you have all been well. Speak again soon (: x

  1. That bag is amazing! How much does it weigh?

    1. I'm not sure of the weight exactly. Compared to the Prada Saffiano Lux Tote, the Givenchy Antigona is very structured so its a bit heavier but its not as heavy as a typical Mimco bag (since their Mimco hardware really weighs it down!). If you only carry around your necessities like your phone, wallet and whatnot then you'll have no problem carrying the Antigona as an arm bag. Otherwise, on the days you plan to carry a heavier load you can just switch to your shoulder strap and your bag will still keep its structure (:
