So this is it, I have left Melbourne. It was an amazing city that I never expected to love so much. I am gonna miss all the amazing people I met, the laid back aussie attitude, sushi rolls, op shops, solo lemon, there always being new stuff to do, sportsgirl, the summer...I could go on and on. But my adventures begin, might not get to blog so much but will put up photos at some stage.

I have worn my Doc Martens twice, not painful at the time but after realised a massive blister forming, it brought back painful memories from my teenage years of wearing them and the same thing happening. Although this time, it has become badly infected. I have ended up having to go to the hospital, getting it injected and prodded at, more painful than any tattoo ever! But I love my doc's so much, but am gonna need to lay off them for a while, dammit!

tavi's blog that you could just buy one of the print collars, although $190 does seem a bit pricey for a 10th of a shirt, BUT they are amazing! I am really into shirts and collars lately as is, Hmmm, I need to investigate in real life, very tempting! Photo is by Steven Meisel for italian vogue, more here.

Heading back to europe for summer has got me thinking about the fun/madness of the festivals, and H&M have created an gorgeous collection with 25% of each sale going to AIDS awareness projects (amazing!). I wasn't a fan of the garden collection but will mos def be hitting this one up. Also features gold headphones tents and sleeping bags, wowsers! Available in stores 20th may, more photos here.

Was sad today to hear Macolm McLaren has died of cancer at 64; he was quite the pioneer of a lot of things and somewhat of a punk rock mogul. Although he is most famous for managing the Sex Pistols he also had his own music career which included this classic Buffalo Gals (1983) which really brought hip hop to the
forefront in the UK. He was married to Vivienne Westwood and together they opened the very famous SEX store on the Kings Road, London, selling her punk style clothes. They had a son together who is now co-owner of Agent Provocateur.
Although he was known as an eccentric man there is no doubt he was a revolutionary of his scene; respect!

Lately I have been thinking a lot about clothes that just seem to stick around and have become somewhat part of a modern day capsule wardrobe. I see my wardrobe as something to build on and realise some purchases have enhanced my already existing items greatly. There are also some disposable quick fix items but mostly I like to have things I feel I can wear forevs. So I hit up polyvore and put together some items which I think make good wardrobe staples.
Blazer: this can come in many different forms, boyfriend, fitted, sequin, tweed, navy/military.
Black vest and white vest.
Plaid shirt, never ending greatness really.
Leather jacket in any of its forms.
Leggings: wet look, leather, floral, just beware of those Lindsey Lohan catastrophes!
Trench; a classic.
Cardigan; always handy for throwing over anything, belted being the cardi de jour.
Breton striped top = duh!
High waisted skirt.
The floral dress is the new little black dress in my eyes.
Great pair of heels; I'd vote black.
Converse; I don't even own a pair of these right now but really should.
Flats, flats, flats.
Also jeans, but thats just a given!
Things that nearly made the list:
A pea coat (navy gold buttons)
Tshirts, mostly of the logo variety;couldn't find any decent ones on polyvore, but I can never get enough.
A fur coat.
Biker boots or any boots for that matter.
As for accessories thats a whole new post! Any thoughts on what I have missed out?

I have been working myself into a tokyo frenzy the past couple days (its easing the pain of leaving melbourne!). So along my searches I ran into nail art and y'know when in rome! Here are some of my top fav's, although I could go way out; crystal embellished/hello kitty gumball madness, I will probably just opt for the more 'conservative' leopard print or cute fruit variety. Chanel logo could also be good or wouldn't miu miu bird print be amazing??
