Wearing: Faux Fur Coat (Red Cross Shop Newtown), Ethnic bag (Thailand), Tie-dye top and scarf (Chatuchak Markets), skirt and tights (Supre) and Chelsea Boots (Marais USA via Solestruck)
Continuing on from my previous post, the ethnic/tribal/aztec/ trend is certainly amongst the top of the list of leading trends this season. Whether it is winter here in the Southern hemisphere or summer in the north, adding ethnic influences to any outfit is almost too easy! During my time in Thailand, I was on the look out for the "perfect" ethnic bag that had the right balance of bold colours, accents and details. This was somewhat impossible as EVERY ethnic bag I came across caught my fancy - seriously, how can you choose? It was a bit overwhelming (in a good way) but in the end I finally made up my mind with this multi-coloured, pom-pom adorned baby. It's been glued to my arms ever since!
The faux fur coat was a find I picked up from the Red Cross Shop in Newtown last year when it first opened. It kept me warm all throughout last winter and no doubt it would do just the same this year. The texture of the faux fur is not really animal-fur like but leans more towards the fur of a teddy bear. Yep, I morph into one big cuddly teddy whenever I wear it! (perfect for winter snuggles) .... Other than the teddy bear fur, the tapered fit was another plus!
My Chelsea boots from Marais USA via Solestruck have also been another favourite during these cold weeks. They are easy to slip on and waterproof! Ideal for those 10cm deep puddles you may just come across! (I'm counting 5 so far thanks to Sydney's crazy weather) Sometimes I also feel I'm a long lost member of the Tap Dogs! haha
These photos were taken on a lovely Sunday outdoors at Fox Studios, Entertainment Centre. My sister Kassy and her boyfriend Alvaro had booked a Trapeze Flying lesson which was a joy to watch and play the role of photographer. Both of them were quite the stand-outs out of the group and sure did impress not only myself but other on-lookers nearby. They both had an enjoyable time and was a whole different thrill in itself.
For lunch we went to grab some delicious South American food from one of the market stalls. Boy oh boy was it a treat to our tastebuds - barbequed Chorizo sausages and garlic prawns!! We had to order a second serving as we munched down the food like hungry horses.
For an afternoon treat we bought these amazing, super cute mini pancakes. Can you tell we were hungry! haha
Last but not least, since our tummies were satisfied - a material purchase was inevitable! These leather goodies were priced considerably and were too good to pass up on. Let's just say, I walked away with a delightful AND versatile mustard piece.
Hope your week has been pleasant and not too busy! I am so glad it is Friday tomorrow!
What do you have planned for the weekend? I will mustering up the courage to go for the big chop and cut my hair shoulder length. If you follow me me on Twitter, you may have seen my Camilla Belle inspiration pic. Do you think it will be a flop or not?! Any suggestions?
