Republica

 Dress: Dotti, Blazer: Forever New, Shoes: Ice, Watch: Armani Exchange

Tonight we went out to a restaurant in St Kilda, Melbourne called Republica for my sister Ashley's Birthday! Happy birthday to my beautiful best friend, photographer and sister. 
It was so nice to see the sunset over the ocean, it was a beautiful sight and great restaurant. It had a beautiful patio on the boardwalk with these fun swinging chairs overlooking the beach. I highly recommend this spot for anyone visiting Melbourne. Also, great food! I recommend the snapper over gnocchi...mouth watering!
I recently bought this dress from Dotti on sale for only $30! It was a little too long so I asked my mum to hem it now its TOO SHORT! Oh well lucky I don't live in Melbourne and I don't have to face half the population I flashed throughout the night.
I hardly ever wear my hair in a pony tail, but I quite like it and might have to do it more often! I am in desperate need for a cut and color, if anyone has any recommendations of good hairdressers let me know :)

Australian Open: Day

Dress: Forever 21, Jacket: Valley Girl, Bag: DKNY, Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Shoes: Famous Footwear, Hat: General Pants Co (similar one here) Watch: Michael Kors

Today we watched Azarenka vs Kuznetsova, S. Williams vs Stephens and A. Murray vs J. Chardy. It was great tennis! I was sad to see Serena lose, but inspiring to see Stephens win and she is only 19! I expected to be really hot sitting at the tennis, but we were sitting in the shade. So I guess I wore my hat for glamour purposes only! I love these retro Ray Bans my Mum recently bought for me. They are perfect for music festivals and sporting events. Sometimes I feel like I am at a music festival being at the  Aussie Open! There is so much atmosphere inside and outside the arena. Maybe because of all the drinking, Australians do know how to knock back a few! This blazer is my staple jacket that goes with everything, I also wore it here, when I went to Fiji.

Valentino

STYLE INSPO: Brandi Glanville 

Jacket: Forever New, Shirt: H&M, Pants: Supre, Scarf: VALENTINO, Bag: Collette Hayman, Booties: Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Watch: Michael Kors

On Tuesday we flew down to Melbourne for the Australian Open! This is the outfit I wore on the plane, I am always cold on planes and Melbourne weather is unpredictable (hence the jacket and scarf in the middle of Australian summer). Well we got the party started pretty early, and I drank a few baileys on the plane...which resulted in bad quality blog pictures and me looking a tad seedy haha. 
How fabulous is this scarf?! I found it in TJ MAX... one of those amazing, random and bargain fashion finds! I know i will have it forever, it just adds instant elegance to any outfit. Everyone should invest in a designer silk scarf (Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Gucci), and while your there you can buy me an Hermes one too! 
I have recently dyed my hair lighter, and I think I look too barbie? I like the dirty blonde look better, but for now i will live up my platinum locks. And next month I will tone it down with some low lights.

A Style Icon: Miroslava Duma

 

Miroslava Duma (Mira Duma) is the definition of a style icon! She is young, fabulous and incredibly successful. She is only 25, and is the editor of Russian Harper's Bazaar Magazine and is a freelance writer for many fashion publications. Her style is versatile, chic, and oh so bold. She isn't afraid to dress ultra glamorous, feminine or masculine.  She takes risks, and she pulls them off with her gorgeous little baby face. She has a two year old boy, a husband, a successful career, travels the world, wears amazing designer clothes and she is only 25. If only I could get my life sorted.... 

I just quit both of my part time jobs... New Year, fresh start, time to start my career! 
Looking forward to this year. Last year was great- I graduated from College in America, I travelled, I fell in love, (but then experienced heartbreak), I moved back to Australia, partied hard with my best friends, got really close to my beautiful sister again, spent time with my parents (after 4 years living on the other side of the world and lived carefree.
But the party is over! 2013 is MY year! I'm young, single, and more ambitious than ever. I have nothing holding me back! I feel like I could live anywhere and be anything....maybe i'm living in La La land but why not? Think big, dream big, right?

Maxi & Murray

Dress: TJ MAX, Bag: Louis Vuitton, Sunglasses: RAY BAN, Jewelry: EQUIP and vintage, Watch: ARMANI EXCHANGE

Watching the women's final was great, but watching the men's was AMAZING! We saw Andy Murray verse the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the final at the Brisbane International. It was such a great game, and alot closer than the women's final. Murray took out the match but Grigor won my heart :) The 21 year old Bulgarian is rumored to be dating Maria Sharapova....biatch! He is a gorgeous man, and a great player...win win! 

I love this maxi dress! I got it for only $40 at TJ MAX (a store in America, Sorry Aussies). It is getting hotter and hotter down under, so long flowy dresses are my go-to look. I unfortunately don't have a petite body like my sister Ashley, so I can not get away with figure hugging dresses. But doesn't she look adorable in her union jack dress?! Appropriate choice of outfit to cheer on the Brit, Andy Murray. 

My sister and my best friend are starting hot yoga this month, so hopefully my body will be transforming. Ever since I finished with college tennis I have been excessively eating, drinking and partying (#yolo?). I worked hard in college so for the past 6months I have been doing what I want, whenever I want. But I don't want to turn into the next Lindsay Lohan,  so it is time for a fresh start...a healthier start!
