Sunflower





Dress: Vintage from Etsy
Heels: Havoc by ASOS
Belt: Op-shopped
Rope clutch: Another el-cheapo Ebay find
Lopsided broken sunglasses: Vintage from Surry Hills markets

There is a special place in my head reserved for deep shame at my eternal, hopeless, soul-crushing uncoordination. These outfit photos are taken by the beautiful Kristal from The Gypsy and the Fox because something straddling the line between hilarity and tragedy happened. I broke my third 50mm lens. My THIRD. ONE. How it is even possible, nobody knows. My clumsiness knows no bounds. I struggled to decide whether to laugh hysterically or sob even more hysterically. Here lie the last photos taken by a sad little 50mm doomed to a violent death as soon as it landed in my hands. You didn't have a chance, buddy. R.I.P.










El-sneako shot of bloggers being pretty and bloggy (...and very colourful)




Was treated to a cute little Breakfast by the good people at The Iconic. Sarah Gale - the wonderwoman behind it all took us through some pieces and a few trend moodboards for Winter 2012. She put a different spin on my clumsiness - she called me consistent. From now on I'm not going to say I'm uncoordinated, or clumsy. I'm bloody consistent at being clumsy and I'm good at it.







The Iconic has Lonely Hearts, Ginger & Smart and Ellery sit comfortably next to Ladakh, Dr Martens and Minty Meets Munt. It's sort of like high school once you think about it way too much in the shower. High School is really the one unique situation in life where you get thrown in direct and immediate daily contact with an eclectic mix of people that you may not otherwise have ever tried to speak to or meet outside of a schoolyard environment. It's a beautiful thing.

The best part, though - 3 hour shipping. I'm not kidding. 3 hour delivery. You can run around carrying the curse of uncoordination and let everything you eat dribble onto your outfit for tonight and then replace it in 3 hours. Convenience.




With the charming Sarah Gale

YOU ARE PATHETIC, JESS

Kick ass shoes! I love the style or haircut of your hair! Jealousy is killing me! xo

Haha you poor thing! You look so sad in the last pic. If it makes you feel any better, I spilt tea all over myself today and it really hurt. Extremely irrelevant, I know, but at least you can now laugh at my misfortune. Wwaaah.

Oh Jess! Your third lens! Poor thing, I thought it was meant to be third time lucky.
I loved this post as I never knew such a thing as 3 hour shipping even existed - incredible. Plus that H&M suit is amazing.

How do you even break a lens like that? It looks like the middle barrel bit just popped out of the lens body?

Cady said...

That's too bad about the lens– sometimes these things just happen though! I love the print on your dress, it reminds me of clothes that I wore as a kid; sounds like The Iconic was such a fun affair, thank you for sharing (:

nicole said...

That picture of us is freaking me out because there is no way on earth that I'm taller than Jess, AM I?!

RIP Lens. We'll hold a ceremony for it soon.

I would get the 50mm f1.4 if you're happy with that focal length. It's built out of metal so it's pretty resilient. I've bumped it against walls quite a few times and it still works perfectly.

Mayumi said...

that dress is beeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaut!

nu said...

it's a sign, you shouldn't buy any 50mm lenses anymore ...
