My latest polyvore set.

I actually really like these shoes. They're by Jeffrey Campbell and instantly remind me of the Stella McCartney FW13' version. To be honest, I haven't actually owned a pair of heeled shoes for several months now but I'm seriously thinking of purchasing this pair once I'm a bit settled in Japan. The only concern I have is the height of the heels. I believe I'm relatively tall for a girl (around 172cm) and I know I will tower over people (especially in Japan) if I wear these shoes because they're supposedly 6 inches tall :O. The only other thing questioning whether I purchase them or not is whether I would actually wear them. I've owned only a hand full of heels in my life and I usually (basically never) wore them. I just thought that heels were always for "nice/dressy occasions" because that's what happens in Australia... but I see street style pictures of people in Tokyo and around Japan that wear heeled shoes so I wonder if I can break this Australian mind set I seem to have. Also, do I have the confidence to look like a giant and get stared at in Japan if I potentially buy these shoes?! Decisions, decisions....

I want to wear this dress above as a wedding dress!

Some immaculate pieces from Ann Demeulemeester's FW collection are up on antonioli's website, the ones posted which are my favourite. I always really like the pieces they chose from my favourite designers and the way they style the pieces simply so you can really see the details of the individual pieces.

Zara + vintage

wearing: Zara skirt, vintage blouse, ebay boots

I went out last night for a friend's birthday dinner last night and this is what I wore. I also wore make up for the first time again in a while. It was about the 2nd time in my life that I tried liquid eyeliner! Anyway, from today, there's only another 10 more days until I head off for Japan! Fingers crossed all goes well :)
