The Fifth Label

Being asked to describe my style is a pain in the ass. A pain in the ass that is going to keep recurring so long as I'm blogging about clothes (and stuff). When describing my 'style' the words laid back/zero fucks don't really scream FASHUN maybe the term 'off duty' would work if it wasn't associated with way I can pull that off. Thankfully the brilliant peeps at Australia Fashion Labels have got me covered with their newest addition to their growing empire of awesomeness. The Fifth Label is all about fusing the attitude of street wear with the fine cuts and quality of high fashion - a way more fashun way of describing laid back/zero fucks. I've already popped into the aesthetically pleasing BNKR store in A-town (Adelaide) to stock up on some tees and ridiculously comfy pants. How I made it out of that store without selling my soul/body/organs to buy everything in sight is a mystery...

Agent Provocateur Adelaide Launch

Last Thursday night Adelaide welcomed their very first Agent Provocateur store to Rundle Mall in the revamped lower ground of the David Jones building. Champagne and canap├ęs where served while guest were able to view some dangerously sexy lingerie. Black lace, dreamy bridal lingerie and gorgeous bras the colour of the rainbow were on display, tempting us all to disappear into the plush dressing rooms for a fitting. With the crazy success of Fifty Shades of Grey, it wasn't surprising to see the popularity of Agent Provocateur 'accessories' range such as rhinestone whips, sequinned nipple tassels and gold-plated collars (not for your pooch). Personally I'm delighted Agent Provocateur has chosen to share the love/lust with Adelaide and I've already begun saving for something special. And some nipple tassels.

No biggie

"I love it when you call me big poppa, throw your hands in the air if youse a true playa"

Like most teenage boys my brothers went through a period of listening to Notorious B.I.G, Tupac (yep they had no allegiances), Wu Tang and Snoop Dog (pre-lion days obviously). As the only girl and the youngest, I had no chance at commandeering the stereo or tape player in the car to listen to Aqua, instead I was dropping gangster beats in the school yard...until they moved onto their heavy metal faze. This ASOS sweatshirt is one of the many novelty-esque jumpers that seem to keep making their way into my wardrobe. It is probably one of my favourites because it is a reminder of car trips with my brothers rapping about things we had no understanding of, while my mum tried not to make eye contact with other parents in their passing cars.

Winter blues

St Frock Navy Knit, A Storm of Swords by George Martin 

I'm currently keeping the winter blues at bay by indulging in two of my favourite obsessions. Warm, cosy knits and anything Game of Thrones related.
The only problem with this knit from St Frock is that I've been constantly layering it with so much red and white that I'm beginning to look like the Australian flag. . .and the American flag. . .and England's flag hmmm. Anyway aside from my patriotic styling, I've been wearing this knit so much that I think it's about time I bought its grey twin, least then no one will try to hoist me up a pole :)
Who else is obsessed with Game of Thrones? The wait for season 5 is going to be torturous but I've bought all the books to lessen the pain. I had read the first book a couple of years ago and was so confused by all the Tyrion's, Tywins and Tyrell's I never attempted to read on but watching the show then reading the books makes everything so much easier, definitely the way to go!
