Yet another girly brunch meet in the inner city calls for more photos in really cute streets! I've grown reallly, really fond of little terrace homes and their colourful walls here, and all the quirky little unique touches each house has. I spent a whole night in bed just browsing potential properties and feeling demotivated seeing how the tiniest 2 bedroom place will go for over a million. I'm so glad I got into the property scene early on (about 3 years ago) because the housing market in Sydney is currently monstrous.

I received the 'Spirited dress' from Paint it Red recently and I've been waiting for a warm day to wear it out! The day we took these photos was so unusually warm for a winter and I felt like I should've gone with a lightweight kimono rather than a leather jacket. I fell in love with the quirky patchwork-style design of the dress and I felt like it somehow really suited my personality :) The dress is from an older Paint it Red collection but is still available here from Arch Fashion.

Mejuri also sent me this stunning claw bangle, which is actually sterling silver dipped in 14k gold! Since it's a precious metal piece, it doesn't tarnish or fade or any of that unfortunate stuff that happens after a while with other cheaper jewellery. This claw bangle is one of my faves from Mejuri because the make is so elegant and high-end but the sharp claws add just a bit of edge :)

I so need to have more time to catch up on everyone's blogs! I've been running on so little sleep and have been so busy. Right now it's almost midnight and I haven't had dinner yet but I'll have to skip it as it's so late haha. This week I'm taking some days off work so I should be able to relax more and have more time to get stuff done.


  1. Looking so chic dear

  2. I'm in love for your dess . It's amazing
    nice post

  3. Beautiful dress!

  4. Love the look lady, your bracelet is beautiful :)


  5. I think the dress looks great with the leather jacket. I really need to get one that length because it looks so good! The print on the dress is really nice too. I’ve had a look online at properties in Sydney too & they are ridiculous! Even for crumby, run-down places. It’s crazy! Perth can get quite crazy too with their realty though. Lucky you got in there quickly!


  6. The dress is such a gorgeous piece, and I think the leather jacket is the PERFECT outerwear. A lightweight kimono wouldn't have the same edge that tis outfit flaunts, but I can see it being worn that way, too. N'aw, it's great that you're getting some days off; I myself have been driving myself up the wall with work, ha, so enjoy that!

  10. I love how you toughened up the look with the leather jacket! I always love how they look with dresses and feminine clothes.

    I actually love shooting in front of people's homes if they're really nice (that sounds so creepy haha). I always see the most amazing colors, there's a house near me that is completely purple! My biggest fear is if they end up coming/being home, and it's someone I know haha.

    I feel you about housing prices! I'm currently apartment hunting in NYC and everytime I see my dream apartment, I take a look at the hefty price tag and have to force myself to close out of the tab. It's such a struggle!

    So glad to have discovered your lovely blog today Izzy :-) Now following you, and can't wait to check out your upcoming posts.
