A few weeks back my man & I took a trip across the border to meet up with my sis & her boyf in the Emerald City. Seattle is such a great city and it definitely met my foreign city criteria: shopping, art, food and coffee. Tick tick tick & tick. This is what followed..

Once. Twice. Three times a trend. I've seen these Acne booties on a few fashion forward ladies at work and this may be a little premature but it should be announced as the 'BOOT OF THE SEASON' :O! There's something about the quirky shape, englarged zippers and managable heel height. It's like Prince and Acne had a baby and her name is Marlie. x Sharday

Definition: typically unfeminine, bulky, undainty shoe. Some would say f!@king ugly. I say cool as f!@K.
Next up in the fugly shoe game is the retro New Balance sneaker. Ok I'm not going to lie, I've had my eye on these for about 5 months now, just waiting for the right colour combo to become available at my local store. This week, the moons must have aligned as I found some black ones (mens size) at Little Burgundy. The guy was such a little cutie and gave me a discount because it was my friend's birthday. I told you the moons aligned! So to sum it up.. these shoes are a wee bit on the ugly side but who cares? They're cool as f!@k. x Sharday
Help me people! I can't decide between these two STUNNING bags. I wanted to treat myself to a little *congratulations on the new job* bag, but I'm having a hard time deciding. I must say I'm leaning slightly towards the Wang Prisma Lunchbag, just because it can be worn so many ways and it's practical for work.
Summer is coming so it's time to get some sweet shades on your head, these are a few of my favs via Westfield online. With that being said, I've got my heart set on some stunning Colony ones also!
Which ones do you like most?
I'm kinda obsessed with all things silver and transparent right now. Maybe because it's so pure and simplistic.. 100% chic! xx Sharday

How sweet are these tee's? The Margiela one is definitely on my must-have list. They are currently sold out so I'll have to wait patiently until these come back in stock - available at Les Plus Dores.
Oh let me count the ways I love thee Alexander Wang Marion.
Now which colour to choose? Oh and also which bank to raid?
I felt slightly like Kate Moss, sans Yves Saint Laurent garb, today on a solo shopping excursion. I decided on my day off to indulgence myself in a bit of self-medicated retail therapy. Who knew it would all go downhill? I headed off to Melbourne Central as they have a wide array of all the regular brands.
This is where my disappointment began. Witchery is copying the Balmain denim embellished jacket. Sportsgirl is overdoing the Chanel chain bag imitations. Lastly, every store has it's windows plastered with SALE signs which makes telling them apart a difficult job.
When I did find something I liked, the store lacked my size (dress 8 & pants 9, not too much out of the norm!).
Blazer's seem to feature in every store, which I think is a positive step in improving the general aesthetic of the mass fashion-loving population.
So all I can do is SIGH and hope that when I venture to Sydney next week, I'll have better luck.
