you say tomato, I say tomayto

Currently loving:

This Aussie label is doing it right....hard to track down, hard to source, but man do they have some cool things. So when I walked into Subway DC on King Street today (Perthites, get yourselves there pronto...they're having a 70% off renovation sale) I was very pleased to see a gorgeous knitted vest from this cooler than cool label.

the shoulders....ooh baby...

Of course I indulged....originally $208, I bought this baby for $89. The star wars/alien inference via those quirky shoulders and multiple coat tails immediately caught my attention. Different in a good way and I love it.

Get thee to Subway DC on King Street pronto. Their sale is pretty damn good and amongst the goodies available was a heavily discounted Stolen Girlfriends Club gauze/tartan skirt (which I couldn't commit to buying as I didn't think I'd wear it enough), those infamous wicked bandage leggings by Stolen Girlfriends Club, and an incredible black bustier (also by SGC). Also up for sale: a denim-esque cropped bustier top by Alice McCall (in a size 6, so if that's you, what are you waiting for? Uber cool and uber on sale!), and a whole heap of fabulous goodies. Will definitely have to pay them another visit.

was I a sucker to let this one go???

those leggings....

Another exclusive new label, "Stompface" mentioned this new Aussie designer and I immediately went on the prowl. Love the range. So pretty. So 'want right now!'. Billie and Rose have received a few items from the range. If I can recommend anything at all.....the black fitted skinny leather jacket with studded sleeves. Beyond perfect. Also moderately expensive and I have enough leather so I decided to forego it ($695 Aus, I think). How much do you want to bet I regret passing it up???
[I'm personally hanging out for the fierce boots....yum]


hello ridiculously soft leather...this is soooo much better in person, I tell you!

OOh you simply have to do your Siren post! Those look friggin awesome - love the chrome heel and suede(?). I'm so gutted I already went and ordered the Steve Madden versions :(( Was a last resort because I could find anything in NZ apart from the Jeffrey Campbell Mels!

I am waiting for the Siren "Cult" to come out in NZ tho (http://www.shopsiren.com.au/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=169&added=true) Their damn website doesn't ship here. So frustrating lol

Sorry I am ranting a bit! But you are like my shoe sister so I can't help going on about shoes here heheh :)

Thanks for sharing all of this! I think most Aussia labels are painfully neglected in the international fashion scene... probably a great excuse for me to visit again ;-) Love the knitted vest... a great find!

hahah oh yes i am attempting to comment your blog AGAIN. i have decided that I didn't really comment on the old posts by some crazed fault of blogger, in fact what really happened is me, the current me, travelled back in time and commented on it. yes that's right im a time traveller now, some would say the time travellers wife, except that I am a time traveller. and not a wife. and isn't it nice when I leave long strange ranty messages all over your blog. i bet you feel happy..and not frightened at all.

but yes talking about tomaytos is very important, and this is genevieve is absolute love, the bicycle pirate got me on to it a while ago.

i'm so bad with shopping lately I have lost all energy and effort to search for things, and i really want to search for things, but i'm so damn lazy and there must be something wrong with me to be too lazy to shop, although I am poor because I spent all my money so that the council would pick up the bins and let us do other land related things.
oh yes isn't it marvellous.

i really am going to stop now.
but think of all the trouble i have saved you having to organise drinks with me, you see now you are too afraid of me to even mention it again! haha which is a shame, because it would have been wild, in a non scary way I promise :)
