Shopping : NBA Store - 5th Ave New York

 With the NBA Season kicking in today I thought it would be the perfect time to do my NY post on the world's only NBA Store. I've been a baskteball fan for as long as I can remember. I'm usually one of those people that follows a certain player & with Derrick Rose making his return I couldn't be more excited. So excited that I bought socks with his face on them haha. The socks are actually from Footlocker and those stores there are so much better than the Footlockers we have here.
 The NBA store in NY is any sport lovers dream. I was in heaven and wanted to buy everything. The store is located on 5th Ave and is two levels. The bottom level was womens and had some other bits and pieces. But it was upstairs that I knew I was going to struggle with my suitcase. Jerseys, jumpers, shot glasses, PJs...pretty much anything and everything you could think of. The guy that was helping us was quite impressed that I knew who Allen Iverson was and looking at the jerseys I was telling him I don't just get ones if I don't know the player or follow the team. He some how managed to persuade me to get the Utah Jazz tee with new Melbourne signed player Dante Exum. How does one say no to one of their own?
I also picked up mens Pajama pants which were only $20. As we were walking to pay I spotted the glasses and was like yes I need new drinking glasses.
Highly recommended if you love NBA.

WSWT : All Black. Thigh High


One of my favourite looks that I wore out one night.
I had knee high boots but wore American Apparel thigh high socks underneath to give the illusion of thigh high boots.
My Zara mens sleeveless hoodie was worn on top of a vintage leather skirt so it looked like a dress.
matched the zips of the hoodie with silver

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 !

Exclusive Tix for Future Music Festival are on Sale through Club Yoyo (117 Lonsdale Street) from this Saturday. Get on it Peeps !

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.

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 :)
