to knuckling down and setting some time aside Sunday to get the new pieces up and listed.

Think, great light blouses, and jackets - perfect for the transistional season on Spring..a few great vintage bags, and sensational vintage Jane Debsters! Think greens, sheer blouses, pokadots & faded coloured denim highlights.

is finally here. oh yay! It feels great to take off a blazer and being able to wear blouses in their full glory withot shivering.
Love seeing the grass lovely and green due to some recent rain, love knowing that if if time permits, I may actually be able to work on a tan or use the pool. Its quite safe to say that many of us have been looking forward to this season for quite some time, pulling on a pair of distressed denim shorts and a singlet.

What are you looking foward to most?

So after doing the usual - get woken up by Brendan coming to say hes leaving for work, pull myself out of bed, stumble to the shower, then stumble for coffee, get ready for work and leave. I started to feel very inspired after ready GPV's wonderful blog update, which you can read here.

Nicole, the owner, operator and mastermind behind GPV always seems to give me much needed inspiration when things don't seem to ever work out. She is living proof that if you really do have a passion for something, go ahead and follow it no matter what.

So this weekend, even though I had planned on nuckling down and getting everything done and all my new items listed Saturday morning, it will be replaced by blood tests and xrays unfortunatly. It will be done! I am determined, thanks to Nicole's wonderful inspiring post today.

Cannot wait to get to show you all these pieces that I have, they are amazing!

I cannot wait to go to Brisbane in 2 weeks for a major shopping spree..weooo!
After many a drunken conversation on Saturday night with a certain stylish female with THE best most amazing pants on, she told me where she got them from *fingers crossed* they are still in store in 2 weeks...if not I need to know where I can get cotton/linen slim fit pants..either plain or print or both!

While the boys (bf and his brother) play golf, I will be shopping shopping and couldn't be more excited, as I have been saving many many pennies for this weekend..


Thursday, August 12, 2010


So two things I want:

- A pair of narrow, beautifully tailored printed pants that I can wear to work EVERY day for the rest of my life..or the season.


- Every single item from 'Fall 2010 Shopping Guide' as produced by ESPECIALLY
a) Christian Louboutin Bridget's Back platform shoe


b) Brian Atwood rz boot (Rachel Zoe's Colaboration with Brian Atwood)

Both stunning, and both over a couple of thousand dollars each, so a little out of my price range, ever so unfortunately, inspiration none the less.

Our listings ending in just over an hour, so be sure to check if you see anything you like.

our listings end tommorrow! Don't forget to check them out

Tuesday, August 10, 2010


Don't forget to check out our first few listings as they all end tommorrow!! With the amazing Red Double Breasted Blazer having a few people keeping their beautiful eyes on it (as well as the other items) I am looking forward to this time tommorrow for them to finally be sold (hopefully).

Speaking of excited, I cannot wait to share with you our next collection! There are such amazing pieces, that I am struggling to actually list and not keep for myself.

Think sheer, pokadots, pale greens and blue! With my love affair for sheer blouses continuing there are two amazing pieces reflecting this. A uber unique black sheer blouse with great denim accents on the shoulder, collar, cuffs and pockets. It is by far my best find!!

I do also intend on taking better photographs, and styling each piece..hopefully for this collection, but as stated in yesterday's post, I make no promises!

As we see the end of winter off, don't be mistaken, there will still be those chilly days, so don't forget to check out the blazers for sale, here, here, here and here

After having a very successful weekend sourcing pieces I cannot wait to share them with the world! I am aiming to have all the new wonderful pieces up sometime this week. I use the work 'sometime' as everytime I set a time or a date, something always happens to push this time or date back and each time I feel so terrible for it. For example, last week, a man decided to run into my car so I am using up my lunch breaks to get my 3 quotes to get it repaired as apposed to going home for lunch and working on the next collection...or my internet/computer situation creates a problem, however hopefully when optus ring me back, one and forall my internet will be up and running properly and that won't be an issue anymore.

However, I really have some amazing new pieces that I hope someone will snap up and love as much as I do.

So I have decided (after being not so satisifed with my usual hair colour ) I want to get my hair balayaged..alot, but am afraid that no one will 'get it' that in fact I'm not actually being lazy, and that I have no idea where to get it done. Or even like MK & A with a bulk blone and just a bit of regrowth..

on a different note - this weekend, I will be out on a mission sourcing more amazing vintage pieces and I couldn't be more excited as honestly it is something I do, purely for the enjoyment I receive from doing so, so I can't wait to see what amazing things I can find.

With the launch of Vern & Sealy vintage's preview for our first collection, I am so excited to see where this takes me over the next months. I truly am so excited.

I have always enjoyed cute little vintage glass bowls, they really are so useful and unique, but I think this has come to the point where I can't ever have enough.. So this weekend on my op-shopping expedition I will be keeping my eye out to increase my collection..can't wait to look for cute little nicknacks to fill the new townhouse with.. Oh and of course some amazing peices to add to my first collection..

I just wish I could upload pictures from my iPhone to here.. I used the photobucket app but they upload huge!! :( so confusing..still working on it.

how amazing

images -

Just browsing through some blogs and came across these amazing shots..check out the blog, its pretty damn good!! I am not going to make a habit of re-blogging, but there pictures are just so beautiful!!

fingernails.. (a fantastic blog, by one of my closest friends, sister, beauty editor at famous magazine, Eleanor Pendleton) is fast becoming the go-to-guide for all beauty advice, news and opinion, has finally done the unthinkable, inspired me to grow my fingernails (also the consistent 'get your fingers out of your mouth' from Mum, Nan, Pop and boyfried).

Eleanor's many-a-post on fingernail's and trendworthy colours made me think back to when I had nails, and how much a change of a colour on your nails can update your entire look.

So to Eleanor, thank you!

So in an effort to keep this up, let me know all your 'stop biting' solutions!

Givenchy Couture

After checking my emails this morning, and opening my oh so regualar email, I was delighted with what I found, Givency Fall 2010 Couture.

I think I can safely say without hesitation that never ever has a single image delighted me so much, all this without even looking through the collection. Filled with neutrals and ever so intricate details, Riccardo Tisci, has done an amazing job.

Riccardo Tisci, his inspiration for the collection being Frida Kahlo and her obsession with religion, sensuality and her unfortunate lifelong battle with spinal pain. The dominant motif of the collection was the skeleton, The human skeleton which

'laid out flat in the lace appliquéd on a long tulle column.'

is ever so obvious.

This week may be the busiest week of all time, at work I am finally feelig the effects of end of financial year, the effects of being lazy with packing ( witchbi am sure that I will feel come Thursday night) and as work has so grAciously given me Friday off I am sure that I will be neglecting this and all my other social networking ventures, so I am very sorry in advance.....

Friday, July 2, 2010


So, I have an iPhone now and it is quite quickly becoming my new best friend. This also means I have a form of Internet and camera, as my computer decided to die. Oh joy, no more being sneaky on the work computer. Now to work out eBay on this thing. Hmmm wonder of you cam get an app for that. Happy Friday

I love being able to check my inbox, facebook, eBay and tumblr all on one

I want...

A little bit of inspiration to get through a Friday afternoon, and increase the length of your 'I want list'. Currently crushing on Phoebe Philo and her impeccable way with fabric. Celine Spring 2010, described oh so accurately by as 'Carried the bat squeak of Helmut Newton-esque eroticism in the semi-sheer nude fabrics and the plain yet provocative use of leather.' could not be any more correct. Her stand out talent is apparent in the way she can combine fabrics from one end of the spectrum to the other in the one, smooth flowing collection.

Phoebe uses contrast of colour and texture to create a right-on-trend minimalist look, that at the current moment I am absolutely loving!

Maybe I would be entitled to a little treat for Christmas...the one in wishful thinking.

bonjour, hej, cześć, tere

The first post of any blog, I'm sure most bloggers and suffering the same feeling I seem to be feeling at the moment...much uncertainty on how to start..kind of nerve racking really. SO here goes..


I'm Elizabeth, and I hope you can get enjoyment out of me simply doing something I am looking forward to making part of my daily schedule. I'm 18, currently working an office job full-time, and have a shopping addiction according to some including BB [boyfriend]. Looking for something to keep me entertained and give me something to continually work on I am going to pursue starting a blog and as soon as I get settled into our new place, an online vintage store, filled with items I will fall inlove with and have to break my heart to let them leave my possession however consoled with the knowledge you will love them as much as me.

Getting down to business, I have started sourcing my first collection and promise that as soon as packing, moving and unpacking is done you will have the opportunity of getting your hot little hands on some of the amazing pieces.

In the mean time, if you have any question or anything you want to say, feel free to contact me on and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Along the way I am certain that I will not be able to resist filling blog will be filled with inspirational tidbits, outfits posts and day to day ramblings with the hope I forfil my desire to having something to continually work on and love, and hope that you will get most enjoyment and hopefully some cute new clothes out of.
