(Vintage leopard shirt, Vintage boots - coming soon, Sportsgirl Hat, YSL/Headmistress/Gifted Rings)

So if any of you follow me on twitter you'll know a couple of days ago i tweeted about trying to find the perfect black floppy hat. I have no idea why it's so hard to find a floppy hat with just the right amount of flop, if that makes sense. Either some are just too floppy or not floppy enough. I suppose conquering the art of floppiness is not the easiest of tasks and all i can think of right now is how much I should probably stop writing the word floppy...

I stumbled across this Sportsgirl hat at a local opshop. It's so strange to think i can find it at an opshop but not at any of the actual Sportsgirl stores? Anyway, this burnt orange colour is one of my new obsessions. It reminds me of an autumn leaf and seeing as we're coming into autumn i can already imagine how much i'll be wearing this colour. I can't get enough of it. I even ordered some orange knee high's from Urban Outfitters and can imagine i'll be styling it with clean neutrals, shades of grey and black, polka dot prints and warm golden tones. Speaking of Urban Outfitters Chloe stumbled across pretty much the exact same hat online today so if you're after one for yourself they're available here and only $34! Honestly, when are us poor Australians going to be blessed with our very own UO? I think we've suffered enough without Topshop or H&M. My wardrobe is crying just thinking about how neglected we are sometimes...


These amazing vintage cream ankle boots are available in store here. They have small gold studs all over them and a rabbit fur trim around the ankle. In mint condition and utterly unique. I've never seen anything quite like them and they inspired me to style an outfit around them. I would keep them but the thought of wearing real fur, especially on my feet kind of freaks me out. Let's hope they find a loving new home before i change my mind!

  5. Oh my god they are marie antoinette shoes
    I love that movie and they really remind me of it

    So very cool
    And as soon as I saw your hat I thought of autumn also. Today i actually put on a snuggley winter jumper and even though I got a bit hot I refused to take it off because it just felt like autumn. I swear its not just me that craves the opposite season! I always want what i cant have!

    and YES to australian UO. I think you should get on their case! i will put my signature down for that ;)

  15. What an awesome hat!
    Ive been looking for a black floppy hat, but no luck :(

  16. Looks like a great hat with just the right amount of flop. My sister gave me a great stunner of a hat but once it's on my head I have to remain still because you can't see the brim to move. Look fabulous but crash central.
    Your lipstick colour looks like you've got that all sorted but my tip for THE BEST burnt orange shade is the Hemp brand lipsticks - can't tell you how much I could rave about this lippy - in Cayenne. I bought mine from the organics store opposite the Woodport, at Erina.

  51. Orange is THE new color for the upcoming spring. I like the combination of the floppy hat and the leopard shirt. It makes you look like a star from the 70's. No wonder that fashion magazines write articles about you. Nicole, you're a trendsetter! :)
