and below the hilt, in letters of gold, were written these words...

Today was yet another putrid, sticky, muggy day. So hot and repulsive in fact that the last thing L wanted to do was leave the house. But boy was she glad she did, for on the way home from milkshakes with Chow. They spotted a wondrous sight. A tiny little owl, sitting, forlorn in a tree outside L’s house. ‘Twas quite a phenomenal sight. There he perched, most of the afternoon, huffing and puffing in the miserable heat. Once the sun set and there was but a little relief from the scorching temperature he launched up in flight, off home hopefully. But while he was there he was an impressive spectacle, L brought me loads of photos, which means I get to share them with you! Oh an a little peak at what L chose to tramp out in, although light and breezy not really any reprieve from the weather.

chaos was what killed the dinosaurs...

With L having so much fun on Sunday she of course forgot to get some full outfit shots, luckily though the super smart Chow had the forethought to snap some quick ones before they left.  While waiting for their lift Chow sat in the shade drinking rose out of cups and L took the chance to water her neglected front garden.

I had the honour of dressing her for the Blogger Picnic and chose her stunning shredded singlet, her pvc rats and of course, the crowning glory L’s utility belt. This belt is something extraordinary, handmade by an awesome local designer whose name escapes me right now. It was found when searching for a friend’s birthday present; needless to say L couldn’t bring herself to buy something for herself while shopping for another’s birthday present.  This problem was swiftly fixed by returning the next day and snapping this baby up. It has now become a favourite in L’s wardrobe rotation, and it’s so wonderfully free to not have to lug a huge bag around! 

let's turn on the juice and see what shakes loose...

High up on a windy hill, overlooking the bustling city a cluster of VERY well dressed and stylish girls met for an whimsical afternoon picnic.  Complete with delicious homemade cupcakes and fruit and cheese and wine and much silly giggling.  They lazed on the soft cool grass, getting to know each other, drinking and laughing and taking copious amounts of photos. They feasted on gummy snakes and strawberry creams and attempted to dip them into mug-wine.

What follows are a “few” photos from the exceptionally delightful day...  more can be found at all the remarkable blogs listed below.

initiative comes to thems that wait...

Today the dynamic duo, Chow and L decided to try and contest the heat by taking an impulsive trip down to the river in an attempt to search out a somewhat cool breeze.  They sauntered up and down the foreshore like a pair of giddy school girls, on the hunt for the nonexistent cool air, mucking around and puling funny faces for the camera. The below photos are the minority out of hundreds, the few where they were being "fairly" serious.

she was the still point of the turning world...


Some simple, playful shots taken of me today while L was playing with her "new" lens. Whilst L's giant monster of a lens is out of commission she chose to borrow a couple of her little brother's, "little" nikon lenses. Actually she finds it quite a relief to have a somewhat normal sized camera for once. And she's ever so thankful for the -3kg's in her bag. Although she sure does miss her insanely wonderful baby. 

when she jumped, she probably thought she could fly...

i hate when you look inside your wardrobe for clothes and find narnia instead...

Only someone seriously tapped in the head would have willingly chosen to leave the house on Wednesday. And of course, that insanely bonkers person was L. While Buster and I sat at home in cool, breezy air conditioned comfort, preening and petting and cleaning each other, the crazy one ambled off and made the long, humid, disgusting walk to town. She was there to her only joy, to see the amazing Kim. Although expectedly they weren’t much fun, for each was wilted and sun touched from wandering the hot city streets. Eventually they retreated to the moon, which was dark and cool and empty. They sipped on ice cold cokes and dined on hot chips, Turkish bread and dips. They were delicious.


I dressed L simply in a light and airy granite dress paired with one of L’s favourite tops, a colourful little tie-dye tank. We also chose today to be the first time wear of her beautiful new headpiece, which was a steal at just $5.

thanks to denial i'm immortal...

This week I have been hiding, veiled in sheer, elderly curtains. Buster on the other paw is finding comfort anywhere and in any position as seen below.


This never ending heat has taking its toll on everyone, including Buster and I. L is not one for monotony, she thrives on change, this coupled with L’s unusual love for winter has made this eternal summer all the more unbearable.  One of the only things that cure’s her perpetual uneasiness is her catch ups and frequent coffee dates with Princess Chow, that and her weekly Wednesday catch ups with Kim.


Both L and I absolutely cherish all the new friends we’ve both made since starting this wonderful little blog. The other Perth fashion bloggers are beautiful, fun and well to say the least amazing.  Each one with their unique style and outlook on life. In fact the one thing she has been looking forward to is next weekend’s fashion blogger catch up held by Jessie from The Velvet Bow and April from Don’t You Know April Rose, It’s to be a lovely picnic up at the remarkably beautiful Kings Park.  L is quite excited to meet the real people behind the blogs and to chat and while the hours away talking nothing but her favourite topic, fashion.

These last few days have been the longest L has gone without seeing her partner in crime and she was overjoyed to have an extended coffee date with Chow.  As usual they gossiped and laughed and spilled coffee all over their clothes.


Today L buckled into the raccoon tail trend, she had been yearning for awhile and was lucky enough that Buster alerted her to this amazing little bit of fur stashed away in L’s fabric hoard.  Unbelievably this DIY only took her 10 mins and she was ready to go and, well I must say I am quite smitten with it.   What do you guys think? Racoon tail worthy?!?


I cattily wasn’t thrilled by this outfit however I do supremely adore the ethereal swishy sounds made by L’s vintage ball skirt and her preposterously long faux pearls. I am on strike from dressing L these days due to... well, again the high temperatures (can you say broken record)
