To the bike...

“I don't believe in fashion. I believe in costume. Life is too short to be same person every day.” 
- Stephanie Perkins

I've been super busy this week so I just wanted to do a quick post sharing these photos from the fashion show I did a couple of weeks ago.
I was modelling for Starfish, a fabulous New Zealand brand. And the catch, I had to ride the runway on a bike.
It was a challenge but super fun! I didnt get any photos of be on the runway but just so you can check out the outfit, here are a few snaps.

Crazy stupid life...

"People think you are crazy if you talk about things they don't understand"
- Elvis Presley

I think its funny how people do this.
How often someone or something is labelled crazy because it's foreign or they don't understand.
When I first saw the wet-look leggings trend I did think it was a bit crazy,
(and my Mum still calls these "those funny leggings" haha)
now I often add them to an outfit to give it a stronger more rocker vibe, at least that's what I try to do.

Today's outfit is my style of our new Be Bop dress.
For some reason the stripes reminded me of early high school when I was into alternative rock bands and black skinny jeans...

shoes - Number 1 Shoes
Dress c/o Be Bop

leggings - glassons

I also finally tried a sock bun, who knew these took so much practice!
Ellen seems to be able to roll up a perfect one in no time.
Oh well more practice for me :)

A dog here and a horse there...

"He's so fluffy I'm gonna die!"
- Agnes (Despicable Me) 

Like most girls, I have an obsession with all fluffy cute animals. Unfortunately I am pretty much allergic to anything with fur -.- 
So instead I channel my need for a fluffy friend into my clothing. 
Panda hats, bear hats and cat ears. Now adding to my collection, this printed horse blouse from Chicnova.
I love the printed blouse trend that is circulating at the moment. From a distance, it appears to be an intricate pattern,
but up close you can see a the repeated horse print.

There must of been something really fascinating to my right since im looking that way in all these photos tehe ;)

Grab your own animal print blouse from Chicnova!
These are a few of my favourites I found on the site that I am adding to my wishlist!

Be Bop!

"Once you can accept the universe as being something expanding into an infinite nothing which is something, 
wearing stripes with plaid is easy"
- Albert Einstein 

So right now I should really be doing my history homework, but come on, where's the fun in that?
Why do homework when you can dance around in the afternoon sun in a beautiful new dress 

As Tara mentioned in her previous post, our camera has been playing up. Not fun when your 
trying to chase the setting sun across the paddock with darkness approaching quickly  :(
But I've just been ogling the Canon 650D camera in the latest JB Hi-Fi catalogue, it looks amazing, 
cant wait for an upgrade ;)

Owl owl owl!

"Shopping is my cardio"
-Carrie Bradshaw

I managed to get some shopping done on my school history trip up to the Bay Of Islands and look what I found;
My friends will know how much love I have for animal hats and bags, they are just so cute! So I couldn't resist this little guy, 
and score, it was the last one the store had in black and white.

I cant wait to style this little cutey!

Learning, seduction and genius...

A book can teach you, a conversation can assure you, a poem can seduce you, a genius can inspire you, but only you can save yourself.” 
- Anthony Anaxagorou 
I'm starting back at university this week and this year I only have to study part-time, which would appear to be easy to get used to. 
Having some time off is something I'm definitely going to enjoy after a busy two years!
I know our previous post featured these same go jane shoes, but I had to get in on that gold amazingness,
and I conveniently just bought a Karen Walker belt with a gold buckle.

shoes - go jane
belt - Karen Walker
dress - glassons
top - thrifted
spike bracelet - asos

I'm pretty stoked with how the photos came out,
I also didn't realise how well the black socks would show off the pattern in the shoes clear panel

I'm still not fully back into the uni routine, but I'm pretty sure this year's gonna be a good one >.<
The year for me feels like it's only just starting,
I'm ready to read books, study nutrition, ski more and have a generally great time.

Do you have any big plans for this year?

Too impractical to walk, but I cant help myself...

“Sometimes comfort doesn't matter. When a shoe is freakin' fabulous, it may be worth a subsequent day of misery.
Soak in Epsom salts and take comfort in the fact that you're better than everyone else.” 

Clinton Kelly

So comfort may be an issue, but how could you deny such beauty?

Those of you who follow me on instagram  will have seen last week at little peek at these shoes when I got them in the mail,
But today is the day of the big reveal...
These shiny gold statement shoes are from Go Jane. I have yet to master walking in these babies, so I confess to having
to put them on just before taking the photos, hence the casual lying on the concrete shots.

Im making it my mission to learn to walk in these babies, I guess I am a bit of a magpie, I cant stay away from the shiny
gold colour 
and I think crawling along on my hands and knees in these shoes isnt too practical...

Just looking at these photos makes me want to go put these shoes back on!

Whats your favourite shoe this season?
