Tee repeat and X-WRAY Cafe

As mentioned in the last post, that was the not going to be the last time you set eyes upon my beloved Metallica tee. Given that a) I love Metallica (esp. old school Metallica); b) this has to be the most comfy tee I've ever slipped on; and c) I have a new "grey" fascination, you're bound to see this tee alot more.

This time around, worn to Danny Bhoy's (the Scottish comedian) stand up gig and to drinks afterwards. I also wore my Tristan Blairs for the very first time and I have to admit that I am in complete lust nay love. They look incredible with anything and everything and are the most comfy 5" heel around. So comfy infact that lots of walking didn't kill my feet nor did dancing for a good 3-4 hours (on a separate night). Score!


they look slightly scary here, don't they (mwah hah hah) - love 'em!

blurry shot ahoy

I also visited my fave coffee shop in Perth last weekend; X-WRAY in Fremantle.

A complete hippy hangout, X-WRAY is tucked away in a laneway off the beaten coffee-strip on Fremantle's main street. It's characterised by colourful plastic chandeliers, hanging pot plants and of late a red makeshift galvanised tin bar (yep, they recently got their liquor licence), not to mention delicious food and fantastic coffees. Yum.


how perfect: live entertainment, great cocktails and my dream bar!



best coffee in Perth. no joke.

Their recent bar addition is reminiscent of a favourite bar of mine back in Kenya that's located on the beach, has the same kind of set up (lots of plants, a makeshift bar with stools) and is tucked away round a corner from the road. I love the bar in Kenya to bits and I can easily see X-WRAY replacing that much-needed hippy lounge hangout. In fact I spent a few hours at X-WRAY last weekend drinking the best flat whites and reading the newspaper whilst the bartender made afternoon cocktails for a few alcohol-imbibing customers and reggae pop funk music played in the background.

I soooo understand your love for your T :)

You look lovely and it seems you had all a great time. How good!!!!

Shini said...

aych, the best thing about that tshirt is that you actually know and love metallica. I don't get it when people wear band tees of bands they don't know or like just because it's in that trend...those shoes are craaazy too btw, i like the scariness ;) goes well with the tee actually!

Slanelle said...

your outfit looks perfect, love the shoes and the shirt !

Pinky said...

I love those boots. Anything with patent and platform is right up my alley. And I love old school Metallica and have had a crush on James since I was 14 *sigh*

Bella said...

Ahhh, the killer combination of those HOT TB wedges and a little old school Metallica... you're my hero!

Elizabeth Victoria C said...

Dooder City said...

i am kind of obsessed with your t-shirt. these photos are great. it looks like you had a blast and rocked out.

Meg and Komie said...

What a great tee and watch!!!!!! We are super fans of old, vintage rocker tees...Would wear them everyday if we could. Love the way you put it all together!

Any place that offers "fantastic" coffees in huge mugs like that is a def thumbs up in our book. It looks like you had a great time, the cafe looks so inviting and fun.

Yeah when we saw the dress at H&M we couldn't believe it

Hope you had a great weekend!
