Real vs. Steal vs. Basically Free!

We all loved the Joan pumps when they came out, they could be seen on every bloggers perfectly pedicured feet. As they are well out of my budget, I could not even consider the option of owning them, so I could only longingly stare at them. Then Senso produced the Cadena which are just as stunning and oh so comfortable; when I tried them on it was so hard to take them off. I've been having an internal battle for weeks, trying to decide whether to finally purchase them or not. Then I found the Shoemint version which are pretty damn good as well and real leather! But unfortunately they don't ship to Australia (trust).
So in conclusion, there is literally a version of these heels for everyone! I'm still set on the Senso version. Which ones have caught your fancy? xx

Eska Alikai

Wearing; Asos man's shirt, Eska Alikai leather skirt and Zara heels

I have finally found the perfect leather skirt. Buttery soft to touch and with a flattering shape and asymmetrical hem, what more could you want? It's so easy to dress up or down so I'm sorry, but expect to see alot of this one. I paired it with this awesome Asos aztec shirt that I've had for a while now. Pretty hipster but still looks great with just about anything. xx

New York Photo Diary

Because all of my favourite fashion bloggers are in New York enjoying NYFW, and I'm very jealous, I decided I should finally post my New York photo diary from my trip in early November. It was my first time in the city and I have to say, I took to it like a duck to water. I can see myself going back a second time, and third, and fourth... Happy weekend! xx

Paisley Brocade

Wearing; Zara bomber jacket, coated jeans and heels

This jacket is one of my very few instant purchases. As soon as I saw it and its matching pants, I was intrigued. And because it fit so well and it was my last day in New York, I just ran with it. Not exactly sure what the print is, hence the post title. I was originally going to pair it with black jeans, but the jacket matched these coated burgundy ones so damn good. Ahhh coated jeans, another thing that makes me happy, never can have enough of them. I hope everyone's weekend was good, honestly I can't wait till next saturday again. xx

February Wishlist - Statement Skirts

(Images sourced from Google)

A few months ago I said that all I wanted to wear in Summer was shift dresses and boots. That hasn't happened, however now all I want to wear is skirts! A statement skirt is so so good; just chuck on a basic top and you are set. Here are some of my must-haves. xx

1. This is Genevieve silver leather skirt - I've seen these pop up here and there on the Internet and I am addicted.
2. Sheike sweet dreams skirt - I don't usually wear skater skirts or trumpet hems, so this is out of my comfort zone, but it's just so damn cute. Still not sure if I should take the plunge. It's got a gorgeous lacy pattern to it too.
3. Aje Catara sequin skirt - oooh everyone knows this one. I want to wear it all dressed up but also with a hoodie and boots too, veryyyy nice.
4. Ksubi paradise skirt - never thought I would but I actually really love this palm print from Ksubi, so naturally I love the skirt version. Common sense, non?
