A year or so ago, I wrote a list to myself of fashion 'must have' peices that I needed to put into my closet as soon as I could. This list included things such as the perfect cape (still looking for you!), as much velvet as possible, and leather shorts! When I was in Melbourne a week ago we went to an amazing street market that sold everything from old books to antique jewelery to incredible vintage clothing. I saw these leather shorts out of the corner of my eye (as we do!) when Nate and I were walking by a stall, and I had to go back to try them on. I pulled them up over my jean shorts, while everyone probably thought 'who is this weirdo?' but there is no shame when finding the perfect peice. They fit like a glove and I couldnt of been more happy. These shorts are my new favorite! It cannot stop at just one pair of leather shorts though, oh no, there will be more to add to the collection - im hoping brown will be next! What is on your fashion 'must have' list?
So I never really got to tell any of you about Melbourne - forgive me! I will be honest and say that I didnt take one photograph while in Melbourne. I know....I know! What the heck? I can say though without a doubt that Melbourne is a beautiful city and I would move there in a New York minute. I love the architecture, old cathedrals on every street, cafes and cute restaurants and shopping shopping shopping! Needless to say I was smitten, and despite some of my trip being absolute chaos I had a great time...and I found the cutest vintage peices. I have missed thrift stores so much. I used to have all second hand clothes, then stopped going for a year or so, but now I am back and loving it. They are seriously my favorite - and I love how everything is one of a kind! Perfection in my eyes.
This is my last full week of work..because guess what? I leave. I move. I jump ship...in 9 DAYS! Nine Days! My friends, this is such an exciting (but incredibly sad!) thing for me. I cannot wait to get home and take photographs in the snow and wear tights without getting crazy looks! I thought that this last week I would do all of my blog posts against the infamous brick wall. We need to end this era where it first began! Have a great week buttercups. x
