Dark want


Straying from my usual chaotic housekeeping posts and presenting you a current lust list from my brain to a sexy looking circular form.

Funny thinking back to this time a year ago when I claimed red was the worst colour ever and I hated it and it was all things bad - but now look as I sob and weep for a cherry red lippie and a matching nail varnish.

I also hear great things about the Shu Uemura eyelash curler so I am keen on trying it out. The Lover lingerie is an added treat if I decide to be extra naughty and $$$ on more expensive and slightly-too-intimate-holey-uselessness this month...

And if any of you have read The Unbearable Lightness of Being I would love to know your thoughts - It seems like a great read this summer!


(Thanks everyone for your sweet comments btw, they are wonderful to read after a long day of work!)

OMG Is that a wrinkle?



Hideous vibes on my part all day yesterday (No longer able to call myself a wreckless teenager) but still not old enough to be a legit adult - am I stuck in the halfway?

So yes... I am twenty!



Lunch @ Devon Cafe Surry Hills. (5/5 btw) 

If you kids ever check it out, try Breakfast with the Sakumas! Or the nutella muffins....



Rockin my favourite Zimmermann playsuit ^___^




One of many candid shots


I also have been getting into a terrible habit of lingering around Balmain after yoga/pilates....
Came across a cute little store called Maple on Darling St and I picked up this lovely lacy treat (Lonely Hearts Lingerie) on a whim. I also felt super left out of the usual Sydney boxing day sales so when I was overseas I was online shopping to make myself feel more at home (not sure if I'm normal)


PS; Sorry for the quality of some of these gr8 iPhone 4 pics

I spent my December in Malaysia and visited Singapore and Vietnam so I've been really MIA and disconnected especially getting my phone stolen in KL!
Although I came back in time to watch the fireworks and FIELD DAY ^_^

Another design wrap up >





Snippets of portfolio work from 2013.


My initial design idea and concept for the cocktail brief we were given.

The brief: Futurism/technology must be incorporated into your design - think outside the square, not everything cocktail is a dress. Use non conventional dress fabrics.

So I ended up created three garments (yay more work for myself not)
A pair of hot pants (WHICH IS NOW LOST THANKS TO WHOEVER TOOK MY GARMENTS TO PADDINGTON)
A "dress" with a super high slit and a sheer top.



The top is made from fly screen mesh and a sun reflector
the dress is mostly stretch bonded fabrics and the hot pants are just silver flecked lycra : )

The teachers loved the styling (phewf!!) so I was really happy with the result.
Until next time.......


(also been seriously loving berry lips lately! even though my lips are too huge for it lol)

If you guys are keen on more of these types of outfit posts let me know, or just leave any comments on what else you'd like me to do! (I'm open to video suggestions too!)
