must haves

Head over heels in love with these two fabulous items! Come Christmas I will be the proud owner of this amazing Alexander Wang wallet, courtesy of my Mum and boyfriend. After purchasing wallet after wallet over the last few years, I was yet to find the perfect wallet that I could invest in and keep for a very long time. With my wallet collection growing I was becoming increasingly frustrated that I wasn't in love with any of them. Enter: Alexander Wang. Whilst perusing Shopbop, I stumbled across this creation and just knew my 'perfect wallet search' was finally over, and don't you just love those gold corners! Will make sure I create a blog post dedicated to this baby once it lands under my tree. I feel like I've jumped on the bandwagon a little late with these Isabel Marant beauties but it doesn't make me love them any less. Finding the perfect black boots can be a challenge, and Ms. Marant nails it with these booties. After selling a few of my other boots, I may take the leap and purchase a pair. Will keep you posted!

I would give my right arm for even one of these items! I fell in love with this Arnsdorf shirt whilst exploring, and lucky for me it's on sale. I adore it's simplicity with the gold detailing, and how it has a slightly denim look to it. This Dannijo ring is perfect for adding to everyday outfits, and I'm sure if I ever get my hands on it that it will become a jewelry staple. Don't even get me started on the famous PS1... I've been admiring this beauty from afar, and in this tasty shade of Raspberry, its become even more desirable. Unfortunately, it would probably take me about 5 years to save up for it, but a girl can dream. My favorite piece out of this collection is the adorable Tasseled Suede Loafers by Charles Philip. I live most of my life in flats, and these have just the right amount of colour, style and playfulness that my summer outfits need. Hopefully they will be joining my ever-growing collection of flats sometime soon.

new kid on the block

First blog post, exciting! I suppose I should start with a few things about myself: my name is Laura and I am 19 years old. I live in the shaky city of Christchurch, New Zealand, and have studied one year of a Bachelor of Science at the University of Otago. I have always harboured an obsession for fashion, but have only recently become a slave to it. It sometimes feels like a strange mix, fashion and science, but it works for me in an odd way. I have always wanted to start my own blog, but the idea has always seemed slightly too absurd or out of reach. After building up a collection of staple designer pieces, and saving way too many outfit posts to my computer, I have finally decided to try my hand at blogging. Hope you enjoy my first post, there will hopefully be more to come, and I might try a few outfit posts if I work up the courage!
