.wonderland.

Towering heels and polished, silken hair, tiny dresses with dazzling adornments, red carpets and Chambord cocktails, glittering Moet and delectable canapés. Industrial, raw space’s crammed with every one of Perth’s gilded fashion society. Flashes of dazzle and camera littered the night, glancing off gold and silver. The elite blended and babbled nothing but style, timidly waiting for the show to begin.

L and her fellow bloggers giggled and stumbled, they were photographed and they mingled. They drank amethyst coloured cocktails and shimmering champagne until they were lead to their front row seats. There they awed over their prime seats and lingered over spilt champagne. And when the light dimmed, their jaws dropped.

After their banquet of fashion they tumbled to the after party where they sipped more ambrosial drinks and fluttered around laughing and examining the ethereal designs, howling though the night.

breathing underwater...

A humming bird’s wing beat of an outfit post for today. Chow and L went for coffee in Leederville, but unfortunately their time was cut short by a meeting. They are back shooting with L’s trusty awesome lens, although not totally fixed yet she did forget how much of a dream it is to shoot with it.

Photobucket

Oh and we’ll be back to regular programming soon. So our apologies for the lack of posts.

We tend to get quite antsy with pesky things like furniture layout and room repurposing, L seems to be changing rooms around almost as much as clothes! Anyone else have this pesky problem?

Photobucket

Anyway I think this habit has transitioned into blog land. Hence we’re asking for your help! We want to change our blog look/layout soooooo any ideas? Do you like the black? Would you prefer the traditional white? Header image? Any other interesting things you’d like to see? Or any current things you LOVE? Outfit posts too boring? Any new sections? Anything! This is you time to speak up and let me know what you want to see!

your my fairy to the world...

L is a big fan of finding new and interesting routes to well travelled locations. Today was one of these days, just a quick trip to the shops via an exciting adventure.   It was on one of these voyages today, L came across a black cat. Never being one for superstitions, she of course stopped for a pat. After a little nuzzle and a meow she set back off on her escapade. Not two steps past before she decided to wave goodbye to the pretty kitty. Astoundingly though she was not waving back at a pretty, shiny black kitty, but TWO pretty, shiny black kitties! We’re pretty sure L cloned the cat. She yet to try out her new found powers though I convinced her that two Buster was not a terribly good idea.
 
Today, we also realised that this past Tuesday was the 1st anniversary of this little blogity blog. It’s been a year and two days since we started this little venture, it’s seemed like no time! Such a fun journey filled with limitless joy and new friends. We are both pretty much over the stars that we’ve lasted at something this long, usually either L or I get bored and forget about little projects, its looking like this really has some potential. So thank you all dear readers you really are what makes this so special. Your coments and questions and words of loveliness, and even just your clicks. They bring a smile to our face’s each and every day.

Of course nostalgia comes with birthdays and while flipping through the virtual pages of this style diary we thought it would be nice to share some of our past outfits with you, although to preserve your poor internets we decided to make a collage. Hope you enjoy folks, and we are looking forward to another wonderful year with you all! 

.ELLERY.

We have a stupendous, secret.  A beautiful, little, hidden treasure box here in Perth.  One not too many know about.  One filled with some unique and startling jewels.  One of a kind diamonds, stunning cobalt sapphires and light catching, emeralds. These, inimitable beauties are nestled delicately among many others.  Jewels the rest of the world covets with ached yearning. Jewels that are lucky enough to call our beautiful town home.

Photobucket

And one gem is coming home, to the immense pleasure of all in Perth. This unique and stunning crystal really is something special. So unique and beautiful in its own right, the rest of the world has been clamouring over its ethereal splendour since it first took notice.


Photobucket

spinning on that dizzy edge....

Things have been complicated to say the least the last couple of months for L and I, and one of the many things that I haven’t been in the mood for is writing. So once again, here are some pretty pictures without words for you to digest. Thanks for bearing with us in this uninspiring, un... well just un-time.

and the day seems to end the way it began...

Just a few pictures from L’s most recent date with the ever fantastical Kimba.

Photobucket

This past Friday they’re date saw them set off for an attractive skip around Hyde Park and of course feast on the customary crackers, pâté and salami as they whiled away the hours gossiping and catching up. ‘Twas, as usual a magical day for them both.

As there was a mix up in times L was late as always. She threw on this easy acid wash maxi and a delicate lace mini vest thing and matched it all up with what is fast becoming L’s favourite bag that is not a bag, her practical and stylish utility belt!

pretty monsters...

Photobucket

Whether or not this story has a happy ending depends, of course, on who is reading it. Whether you are a wolf or a girl. A girl or a monster or both. Not everyone in a story gets a happy ending. Not everyone who reads a story feels the same way about how it ends. And if you go back to the begining and read it again, you may discover it isn't the same story you thought you'd read. Stories shift their shape.
