Vintage Karen Walker

Clockwise from the top left corner: Biker Jacket from Runaway Autumn/Winter 2003 (I own this jacket in black), Tree Girl T-shirt from Tree Girl Autumn/Winter 2005/2006 (I own this T-shirt in pink), Balloon Skull T-shirt from Living with Cannibals and other Adventures Spring/Summer 2005 (I own the exact T-shirt) and Karen Pin from Living with Cannibals and other Adventures Spring/Summer 2005 (I own the exact pin).

Karen Walker makes the best prints period. Tree Girl and Skull Balloon are my favourites. What I love about the Skull Balloon print is that it glows in the dark. I just love all of Karen's designs and I'm constantly on the prowl for more vintage Karen Walker pieces.

Show Me The Money!

Outfit: Glassons boater hat, Just Jeans jacket, Lonely Hearts t-shirt, Mulberry bag, Ignite pants and Glassons jandals

I hope everyone had an awesome Chirstmas. I went to the boxing day races yesterday but I decided not to dress up like I did last year. I just wanted to be comfortable. I bought my self a Race Book to help me pick some winners and I doubled up my money so I'm happy!

Wellington Weekend Shopping

I had a fantastic time in Wellington on Sunday. I hadn't been there in a long time. Checked out my favourite stores and boutiques. Finally went to Swonderful which was so awesome. I love their selection of cute stationery and I got some cute little pin buttons by Nut and Bee and some Swonderful pencils with "The Outcome is Doubtful" and "Swonderful" printed on them which I am gifting to a friend for Christmas. I was also tempted to get one of their Swellington tote bags.

I had yummy pancakes at Mr Bun on Cuba which kept me full for most of the day. I highly recommend having breakfast there, not only was the food yummy, the prices were very good too.

My friend was shocked that I spent $139 on a Lonely Hearts T-Shirt from Area 51 but my friend is really frugal when it comes to buying clothes so of course it was a shock but I can justify spending a bit more on New Zealand designers. I've been wanting the T-Shirt ever since I saw it in the Lonely Hearts lookbook. I just love the design on the shirt. It's a take on a tennis logo with twisted creatures surrounding the crest. It's perfect for me because I LOVE tennis and Lonely Hearts, which equals the perfect combo.

I also dropped in to Karen Walker which is always great. I was so excited I got to see the new Topshop clothes that they're stocking now. I loved the flat shoes with the bows on them the most. I was really contemplating on getting a blue KW skinny belt with a chain but I kinda told myself that I can get it next time because I've already spent too much money already.

Outfit: Ray-Ban sunglasses, Just Jeans denim jacket, Kate Sylvester pin, Ezibuy breton tee, Bling necklace, Lee jeans and a Marc by Marc Jacobs tote bag.

Vogue Australia December 2010

Georgia Jagger looks stunning on the front cover of the December issue of Vogue Australia. She is wearing a Louis Vuitton silk tulle dress and Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci boots.
My favourite part in this issue is a feature on mixing high and low pieces. I liked how they featured clothes that everyone has access to and by adding one high price item you can make the entire outfit look expensive but without the high price tag. I'm definitely not made of money and this fashion feature is how I like to dress.
