Music : Drake at Future Music Festival 2015


5 years in the making and the day has finally come. I can finally count down the day that I will see my favourite artist live in my home city. Yes the whole world knows who Drake is but it was only a hand full of us downunder that have been following him since day 1. His first songs released in Australia was Whats My Name & Take Care (thanks Rihanna) and they weren't even solo singles. But to even hear him been played in Australia was a major deal. 
I've been a fan since the Comeback Season. I remember coming across his video for 'Replacement Girl' with Trey Songz and was like hey that guy from Degrassi can rap. The rest is History. I've been a fan ever since. My favourite songs of all time are 'Houstonantavegas' & 'Sooner Than Later' and I know theres negative chance he will sing those but still excited for him to tour Australia. Thank you Future Music Festival. 
I was lucky enough to add Drake's OVOFEST in Toronto this year and saw him live in his home city so i have an idea of what to expect when he comes downunder.

Hip Hop is a huge influence on my style (for those wondering why the Drake Post. He has nothing do to with fashion). I've done a fair few outfit posts based on his official merchandise and DIY pieces which you can check out below.

Oh and Its his birthday Today. 
So I thought it would only be right to do a post like this today.
  Happy Birthday Drizzy. See you soon !

Campaign : Iggy Azalea for Forever 21 Australia

Who That? Who That? 
With the first Forever 21 being announced to be open in Australia in 2015 in Sydney, Its makes sense that their newest face for their campaign for the Silly Season would be our very own Aussie babe Iggy Iggz. Her beau Swaggy P (NBA star Nick Young) even makes an appearance in the shoot.Throughout this year my old Iggy posts have been rediscovered by fans and I'm so glad the world knows about this hip hop beauty. Theres rumours of her touring in the 'Future' and hopefully Melbourne will be the next city after the Sydney store opening.

Outfit : Tropical Feels

Taking you back to Melbourne for a second before we continue our US posts. 
Recently I was lucky enough to collab with Vision Direct. As the warmer weather creeps up on us what better way to start the season than to add a fresh pair of shades to your Summer wardrobe. I love these Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses from Vision Direct. They go with so many of my day to day outfits and having a little tan myself the white really pops against my skin which I love. 

For this look I wanted to wear all white to match with the glasses but felt like sit need something more. I remember coming across a up and coming Melbourne label recently. As I am a huge supporter of local designers I had hit up the talented Melissa from No Fun Babe. I love the bright fun print of this parker. It really made the whole outfit come together. Check out their site too for more fun pieces.

Accessories : Vision Direct - Marc By Marc Jacobs



What is a new season of Summer without a new pair of sunnies? I was looking at my sunglasses collection the other day and thinking that i needed to invest in another pair of quality sunglasses. Half the time those cheap alternatives don't really protect you from the sun and if they're too dark its a hazard when driving. 
With my birthday is coming up this year I thought to myself I wouldn't mind getting something from Marc Jacobs and then Vision Direct came and my two wishes became a reality. 
With fast delivery I got my new babies within days. I love the white frames of these Marc by Marc Jacobs sunnies. Having darker skin, I love that the white frames really pop out against by face and go with pretty much all my outfits. 
I also how they send you a free cleaning kit for your glasses too. Sometimes those lens can get to dirty especially if you're always on the go like me.

WSWT : Green With Envy



I don't usually wear green but I've learnt it compliments darker skin tones. I've been looking for a lime green top for a while now and surprisingly it goes with so many items in my wardrobe including these funky pants.

What She Wore Today :
Crop and printed pants from Grandma Funk
Shoes from Sportsgirl

WSWT : Print on Print


Was feeling a little adventurous this morning and thought I'd mix some print on print. There is a little animal print in the crop though so I guess its a little matching :)

Collaboration : TDE x Zanerobe

TDE Zanerobe Kendrick Lamar Schoolboy Q bucket hats listen out festival melbourne after party menswear street wear lookbook
TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment) is responsible for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and SZA. I've never seen a rapper perform live right after they've released an album. We usually get them after their established and a few albums in. So when Kendrick dropped Kid MAAD City and toured Australia shortly after it was a special moment. He was back in the country for Rapture where he played in sold out stadiums along side Action Bronson, J.Cole & Eminem.

Schoolboy Q has become the next TDE artist to make his mark with Oxymoron. He toured earlier this year and will be back this weekend for Listen Out Festival. Mosh pit was just magical. So full of energy and we even got to meet him after the show.
He is hosting after party at my work on the weekend. Follow my Instagram for all those updates.

My other Favourites in TDE are Isaiah Rashad and Sza. Download their music. A bit different to Q's and Kdots but still amazing.

On Q and Isaiahs last trip here I saw they went to the Zanerobe studio in Sydney. What we didn't know was that this dope collab was in the works. That was the first time I've heard of Zanerobe. Hip Hop's good like that. It brings music and fashion together. I saw Zanerobe everywhere on my trip to the states. They have a big following there. Fellas if you love fresh clean street wear then definitely check em out.

You can buy Zanerobe at General Pants or David Jones. As for the collection you can find it here.

Outfit : Nightwalker Washingston Square Park

Our first USA outfit post is here !!!
Its taken me so long for me to start uploading these so i apologise. Had to go through 1000s of photos from my holiday to find these cute shots taken at Washington Square Park.
In a huge busy city like New York, parks are like a peaceful sanctuary where you can get away from everything. 
Located in Greenwich Village the park was always full of life everywhere you turned. Live acts, A lady giving free advice, couples hand in hand, men playing chess, kids playing in the playground and the squirrel stealing a group of ladies lunches. I loved the vibe and knew i had to do one of the shoots for the blog here.
I was lucky enough to collaborate with New York Label Nightwalker for this shoot and wore their leather halter dress (as a top) for the shoot. As a lover of all things black i was drawn to the leather dress straight away. It was between this and a maxi dress version which just got used in a Jeffery Campbell ad. I matched up the leather goodness with my new purchases from NY - Zara biker jeans & Steve Madden heels. 
This was the first time I had my hair up for a shoot and despite having a lack of hair spray, bobby pins, hair stylist (i wish) I think my messy ponytail did the trick.
