Make-A-Wish come true.

It's been out for a while now, since November 20 to be exact, but I've only just noticed these limited edition Myer tees which are super-cute and support the Australian charity Make-A-Wish as well! There are a range of designs from names such as Jennifer Hawkins and Wayne Cooper to my favorite print by Jayson Brunsdon.

They retail at $29.95 each- and $10 of every tee is donated to Make-A-Wish. Brunsdon's grand fashion illustration wins hands down, but Leona Edmiston's is also very sweet in a simplistic innocent kind of way. The words might be a bit hard to read but it's "Wishing upon a star" all jumbled up together (I think...). Apologies for the bad pictures, the lighting in the dressing room was quite low!

Sorry for neglecting you...

... it's just that I've been super busy! You know, what with:
  • extended trading hours at work because of Christmas- just a fyi for you Aussie babes: David Jones is open until 10pm this Monday to Wednesday, and til midnight on Thursday and Friday if you want to fit in some late night shopping,
  • Christmas shopping for family (I still have no idea what to get my Dad...),
  • sorting out my timetable for university next year- I'll hopefully be taking a fashion course next semester!
  • doing some research for places to go and shop in Hong Kong and Tokyo. I'll be in HK for about a month, with a little side trip to Tokyo thrown in there, starting early Feb. My grand shopping plan is to check out the warehouses in HK but anyone got suggestions for Japan? I'm particularly interested in designer outlets- Yohji, CDG, Tsumori Chisato, Junya and all those good Japanese designers!
  • compiling a mile long shopping list for said trips overseas,
  • and making another (not as long) shopping list for the boxing day sales. That's an equivalent of the Blk Friday sales in the US of A!
But enough excuses now, I've got the cutest little pair of shoes to show you!! They're Tony Bianco- red patent leather cone heels: the style is called "Ravel" and they're only around $100 mark. The design might not be new, but I just love that these are close toe (I'm feeling the oversaturation of peep toes!) and the cone heel won me over (just look at the runway).

Shame that these size 6s are too big for me!

French Vogue December 2007/ January 2008

Sasha and the little lion cub! Just completely adorable- especially the one where he's between her legs... looks like he's getting ready to pounce! And then there's Sasha's absolutely major facial expressions: as Tyra would say, I love that "she's not afraid to make it ugly!" It doesn't happen often, but I have to say that the clothing fades in comparison to the two stars of the editorial Pyjama Parties! Photography by Mark Segal. Styled by Mélanie Huynh.

Blogger: my call for help...

Just a quick question for my fellow bloggers out there regarding image placement- it's irritating me no end! For those who use IE to view my blog, you would probably have recognized my problem already: the strange gaps and formatting appearing in my posts between images every now and then because I myself use Firefox.

Take my latest post for example:
I guess my question is: What can I do to, in a sense, standardize the look of my posts between different browsers?
(I'm not even sure whether my call for help makes sense or whether it's just a jumble of words... but if you have just an inkling of what I'm on about, and know a possible solution, I would greatly appreciate any form of contribution!!)

Happy Summer 2007/2008!

or Happy Winter 2007/2008 (depending on where you live)! Holiday season is upon us! It's time to head to the beach and bask in the sun... or for you lovelies in the Northern Hemisphere- time to bring out all your beautiful luxurious fur coats, parkas and maybe find your sexy ski gear so you can head to the alps!!And since it's December, you know what? It's time to go Christmas shopping! You girls (and boys) have everything planned out? Or were you well organized enough to have knocked off a significant amount of it during the Blk Friday sales (this question is addressed to those in North America)? I haven't started and its giving me a headache just trying to think of what to get everyone!
