show me your teeth

It seems that most everyone that commented on my last post is happy to see more inspiration here, so I will post this for now as I haven't yet edited the photos I took last night.

inspiration

You can find all of these photos on my We Heart It page.

I've been collecting a lot of inspiration lately and have been debating whether or not to share it on the blog. Generally I like to think of my blog purely as a personal style one, so in theory I probably shouldn't be posting this.

I actually started out posting whatever I felt like, but as time went on I began to think that it was better to be little more selective and consistent. I tend to think maybe it's a little self-centred to post about every thought I have and expect people to be interested, and I also thought it brought more value to post purely original content. I mean, who wants to see stuff that has already been published elsewhere?

Actually, a lot of people if I'm honest.

I suppose it's kind of like vintage shopping: people will pay a premium to have someone else go to a thrift store, rummage through all the junk and bring them only the best pieces (not me, I love rummaging).

I’m starting to think it’s the same on the Internet, where it’s quite nice to have someone else go looking for pretty things for you to peruse in your leisure time. In fact, I’d like to make a shout out to Shin from Fashion Cappuccino and Cindy from Cindy Whitehead, whose blogs both showcase amazing content that I am always keen to soak up.

Admittedly the blogs I like the most are the ones that are the most consistent (and good quality of course), not necessarily the ones that are teeming with original content.

So, I’ve decided to share some of my inspirational material with you. I hope you won’t think me unoriginal.

What do you think?

Should I make this a weekly segment?

Is it ok to post inspiration or is original content king?

Finally posting my fur coat, wooot! Took these after heading to the Bondi Markets where I picked up the ring I'm wearing and some high-waisted powder blue jeans that I'm not sure I'll ever have the inclination to wear. I gave in to the urge to wear sneakers while in Sydney, spurred on by Katy Perry's notion of a teenage dream. It does kind of look cute with a dress or shorts. I love the kind of weather that allows for solid upper layers and bare legs, did I mention I'm dreading the weather descending further into the nether regions of the "below zeros"? Brrrrrrrrr.

teenage dream


Just got back from wading through the hoards of screaming girls and gay boys at the Katy Perry concert in Sydney. New favourite Katy lyrics: "wanna be your lover, not your f**kin' mother" and "you've got the finest architecture". She even sung Rebecca Black's "Friday", oh yeah! As you can see I dyed my tips blue again to mark the occasion...

I wish I was a little bit taller

Took these last weekend while taking a quick look around the Botanic Gardens. Spent all of Sunday watching The City and reading magazines, and am currently gearing up to see Katy Perry in Sydney this weekend. What should I wear? Cupcake bra?
