Outfit of the Day - 6th of May 2013

I love cardigans as shirts.. especially this cream one here - paired with black pleather pants and my trusty black blazer (which I made by pulling apart my last trusty black blazer and using it as a pattern). I seem to be rather pleased in half of these photos. Don't worry, I balance it out by looking angry and stuff in the last one. Excuse my ranting, I'm tired, and attempting to eat cake.

Cardigan - Tokito 
Pleather pants - Sportsgirl










University of Sydney Style - Week 9

Sorry for the long delay, I had a few rather hectic weeks....things are still a bit hectic, but my back-log of photo's is growing, and I'm sure you'd like to see them :P On the upside, I should have plenty of photo's to post during stuvac when you're all in need of a distraction :) Also, note that the post title format has changed to be more logical (rather than week ending, I'm just going to label them as the weeks of semester). 


Tessa here looks remarkably bright and cheerful, demonstrating the impact of a few punchy accessories (and of course, bright pink hair with matching lipstick never hurts).


Margaret Zhang (from Shine by Three), with electronics and cables a many, making an impact despite her laidback ensemble - the beauty of a wonderful coat.


Pastel preppy perfection :P (Can you tell I like alliteration?) I adore the green plaid with the pink stripes, and the black is a good choice, it gives Kathy's outfit a bit of an edge.



Eliane with an adorable scarf, and a lovely dress, accentuated nicely with a bright green belt. Very cute :)

Laura (who runs a pretty cool blog called Roses and Vellum - check it out for some cool Neo-Victorian Style) looks awesome. I love her coat, so beautiful! The little bit of shirt peeking out is just perfect too.

I love the brooch attached where a necklace would sit - an idea I might have to 'appropriate' sometime.

Lauren looking very 'off-duty model' - comfortable and warm, but still stylish. Love the pants!



Betty, looking very lovely again. Very chic, and very classy.

Such a lovely headband - it's the little details like these that make Betty's outfits so pretty :) (I've probably mentioned this before).


And finally, Nancy, who we've also seen before. (Thanks for letting me photograph you again!) I love how her maroon shoes and glasses match her sweater.




And that's it for now.... I'll keep taking heaps of photo's though, so I have plenty to post during Stuvac and exam period. Also, I've been trying to find more guys to photograph, but a lot of the stylish guys I see either refuse to be photographed or are equipped with skateboards on which they move extremely quickly (in a suit too). Found two today though, so there's those to look forward to. Thanks to everyone who let me photograph them- I enjoyed meeting all of you :)

Outfit of the Day - 30th April, 2013

I could only think of outfits involving colour that worked without a jacket, and since my arms are the main part of me that gets cold.... not really gonna work. When I can't think of anything to wear, I tend to just go for black from head to toe.... homochromaticity just makes everything so much easier. Only thing to worry about is varying texture, but my obsession with pleather kind of solves this.


Lace top - Stella McCartney for Target
Skirt - Dotti
Blazer - I sewed it ;) 
Belt - Vintage (from my Mum's closet)

University of Sydney Style - Week 8

I personally feel as though my photo's are getting better...otherwise, it's been a good week - so many stylish people about, and so little time. Or maybe that's just third year. Or tertiary education in general.


The lovely Ally, whose page you can find here. Black and white striped pants, perfect to pair with bright red and emerald green in an outfit you can see a mile away.
I love it when jackets have nice lining - the leopard print adds just a little bit of interest, even if it isn't particularly noticeable.


Simple, but very chic. The brown bag, shoes and glasses keep this casual, whilst the two necklaces add a dainty touch.


Always love a suit, especially one in maroon silk. The pussy-bow blouse adds a nice flair.



I love Natalie's top, perfect for a sunny day. Likewise, those sunglasses are perfect for that hairstyle.

Such a sweet dress, perfect for comfortable chic. Perfect for a picnic, or something of the like (which works well, since I first found her eating her lunch :P)


And of course, the emerald scarf plays up the colourful hair nicely, tying it into the dress nicely.

I love the silhouette created with Anneli's dress (leftt) by the belt, it conjures up images 40's tailoring paired with a bohemian vibe from the print. Hayley's cape/top (right) is lovely.....cravings to steal it (to wear with red, of course).

The lovely Fiona, this time in much better lighting... then again, what doesn't beat Fisher Library lighting? Such a darling dress, and again the attention to detail with accessories - green blue belt to match the leaves, yellow earrings, and pink watch to match the flowers... perfect :)


The whole nonchalant cool look - Elizabeth (who was hilarious....made the 9am start much less painful for a moment) proving the sartorial effectiveness of skinny jeans, a button up shirt, and a black blazer. Cue handbag that brings out the ombre hair.

The glasses don't hurt either...

Charlie, wearing three powerful colours at once (and casually, nonetheless), and pulling it off. So much cheerful preppiness :P

Love the pattern on the shirt....subtle, but worth it.
Laura, looking very french and very sweet (and warm ^.^ ). It's lovely to see someone wearing something I want to photograph, and then realise that person is a friend ;)




More of the long hemlines - there's something about them that is much more intriguing than a mini-skirt (don't get me wrong, I still belong very much in the mini-skirt category). Love the peek of navy at her collar, almost like a necklace...but made of another shirt :P

Khatera looks absolutely stunning with the right button up shirt with the right jeans... something I currently appear to be a little obsessed with. Love the pink polish with the red belt.



I found a stylish gent in the wild. Finn here, with shiny shoes, blue suit pants and tie (that can't help but make me think of Pete Campbell from Mad Men). Love the contrast supplied by the khaki blazer. Also, Finn was the first person to recognise me when I requested a photo - that was a lovely ego boost :)

Katherine in a stunning blazer (suddenly loving my navy blazer less) paired with tartan pants for prep perfection. I kind of missed the headband, but it was a navy velvet bow.

And pearl earrings add just the right touch.

Julia, looking a little bit french, and very lovely. Black and white stripes are an easy way to make any outfit look chic.


On reflection, this weeks theme seemed to be 'preppy' and casual chic. Both of which fit quite well with the whole theme of education based street style. Anyway, I've changed the comment settings so that anyone can comment, so let me know what you think of my posts! Which outfit was your favourite? I'm happy to hear any suggestions :) Thanks for letting me photograph you, I appreciate it...and thanks for reading :)
