ZARA, The Aviary & OOTD

So a Zara recently opened at Burnside Village and I thought I would check it out. The store apparently is modelled after the Fifth Avenue store in New York, I thought it reminded me a lot of the Zara store in Seoul so I guess all the stores are pretty uniform around the world? But the one here is nowhere near the scale of the store in Seoul, a lot of the stores like Zara, H&M, Forever 21 etc. in Seoul and Tokyo have a million levels (well.... more like 4 but you get the point) and the one here is only 2 levels with most of the top level for kids. 
There was a security guard all suited-up to greet us at the door which made me laugh because I remembered that a friend told me that at the store opening they had all this security and a roped off area for a line up but there was no-one!! AHAHA I think they were expecting a huge line-up because the store in Melbourne often has a line-up to get into the store but we're a little more chill here Zara......
I tried to take some photos in the store but a shop assistant stopped me :( I'm not sure why you're not allowed to take photos in store but I was a little miffed -_- so here are the only two photos I could take ninja style.....
I want metallic jeans sooo much!! Beam me up Scotty!!!

I can tell that Burnside Village is targeted towards the people with more "ability" aka the super rich peeps with shit loads of cash to burn.... with all the boutiques like Mimco and Oroton. So I saw heaps of fabulous middle-aged women, or what I like to call them sammonims (a korean term for powerful rich ladies) and their husbands (wallet) walking around.
After my sister took me to The Aviary dessert bar because she kept on raving on about the ice-cream. While we were driving there she made me ring up and make a booking ( the dude on the other end was extra cheerful and peppy which was nice ^^) for a table in ten minutes because there may be a line up..... when we got there there was no-one, we had a little "Zara" moment...... The boy who served us (and answered the phone from before) was cute as a button and my sister told me there was another friendly dude that served her the other night and  I thought is the Aviary a dessert version of to the Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, have my prayers been answered?? and if so where is my Cha Chi Soo??!!! ( a korean drama reference..... basically a store that employs super good-looking dudes yummy!)
The decor is so adorable!
Ordered a mango fruit fizz and a raspberry fruit fizz with little lychee jellies at the bottom, so yum!!

My sister ordered an asian sundae with lychee and coconut ice-cream and I ordered an asian sundae with mango and lime ice-cream. There was grass jelly at the bottom which I absolutely luuuurvvveee nom nom!! Just a warning, the lime sorbet is super duper ultra megaly sour!! >o< Yeah... I wouldn't order the lime sorbet again...... but the rest was delish! 
My asian sundae NOM NOM!! (minus the lime sorbet)

And finally my OOTD! When I was waiting for a change room in the thrift store, a girl came out wearing this dress to show her mum and I was in love!! I had my fingers crossed hoping that she wouldn't like it and guess what??!! she didn't!! ( well, obviously coz I'm wearing now and not her). Thank god for mothers and their overpowering opinions! When she finished I followed her around the thrift store like 007 on a mission and watched her put it back on the rack and walk away and snatched the sucker! MWAHAHAHAHAHA...... why do I always seem like such a ruthless ninja when I go thrifting?!

OOTD - 123

Been a while since I last posted.... my net got capped -_-" That's the worst feeling ever..... going back to dial up speed.... I really wonder how I survived back in the early 2000's when I had dial up! The thing about dial up is that it takes a really long time to download/load a file BUT because it takes such a long time there's always a chance that it might stuff up half way through (which in my case happens 99% of the time)!!
Anyways I'm back to broadband speed (thank god) and am in such a better mood and can upload my outfit of the day HOORAY!
The t-shirt I'm wearing is "inspired" by a Jeremy Scott design...... okay okay it's a totally rip off but anyway I actually bought a jumper before that looks more like the actual Jeremy Scott jumper and liked it so much I went back for the t-shirt version on G-market.
WARNING: you may get random gross middle-aged men on the street thinking they are sooooooooooo  hi-LAR-ious saying stuff like "I'd like to push your buttons, love" when wearing this top      -____- true story..........

OOTD - Hyoyeon inspired

This look was inspired by a shoot Hyoyeon from SNSD (Girl's Generation) did for the November 2011 Vogue Girl Korea issue. SNSD recently made a comeback with "The Boys" and although SNSD are super popular, I think Hyoyeon sometimes does not get as much exposure as the other members so I'm glad she finally got to do her first solo photoshoot :) I like the dark gothic feel of the shoot, sorta like a witchy-pilgrim??   Anyway here's my outfit of the day and remember to check Hyoyeon out in Invincible Youth Season 2 along with fellow SNSD member Sunny ^_^
 White blouse: a random store
Black vest: Miss Shop
Black long tulle skirt: from South Korea
Black and white belt: a random store (I know,I know, I shop at a lot of random stores) 
Black hat: Shibuya 109 (in Japan)

Black and leopard bag: Target
Gold armour ring: Diva

 Spotted blouse from my latest Gmarket haul! I had to get in quick since the seasons are opposite in Korea and Australia, so the majority of clothes in the Gmarket stores are winter when it's summer in Australia and vice versa in winter.... I get so hot just by looking at the winter clothes in this Australian heat! So I basically have my winter clothes ready in half a year in advance, lucky Korea's fashion forward. I love getting a large Gmarket package in the mail, it's like unwrapping a present!!! (that you paid for... but still!) All this talk about Gmarket reminds me I haven't been on Gmarket for a while now.... hhmmmm I think I'm due for another delivery!!
The arm holes for the blouse are kinda tight... damn korean girls and their skinny arms!! *goes cries and eats a donut*

Had this jumpsuit for a while now (over a year??) and never had a chance to wear it because I didn't really knew how to wear it -didn't have the right shoes. It's hard to believe but I only bought my first pair of heels last year, I even wore flats to my formal (I know, I know what a sin I have committed! I'm so ashamed!!!) Now, I'm addicted to heels and feel so frumpy without them on :( So my jumpsuit has finally seen the light of day!! Hooray!!! I'm so sorry my poor little jumpsuit... you deserve so much better! But I have changed and will repent!!! Now I just need to make things right for the other 4 or so jumpsuits in my closet that still have the tags on.......
OMG! hadn't realized how long my hair was!

OOTD - Way back when....

Looking through some of my old jewellery the other day and found all my "cartoon" jewellry so I thought I might throw on some old threads and reminisce. I had a stage where I was obsessed with anything bright, neon and toy-like probably to coincide with my obsession with Key from the korean boyband SHINee..... during the days where they promoted "Juliette" all the boys (especially Key) wore brights with toy jewellery.
So this is my homage to Key and his fabulousness....

My thrifting adventures - Vintage Supre?!

I went thrifting on the weekend (surprise, surprise) and picked up some goodies. I've been really into red and gold lately which I blame on Craig from the last season of Project Runway Australia because he designed a gorgeous collection for the finale based on red and gold. So obviously my purchases would be a gold jacket and red suit! The jacket is not quite the gold I'm looking for... it's a little green(?) for my liking but hey what can you do? 
Now to the red suit! what can I cay about the red suit??!!! ahahaha spotted it on the rack a mile away and ran towards it.... the shoulder pads! the glaring red! the pants! oh the pants! It looks ridiculous! The pictures I took really doesn't do it justice because the shape can't be seen. I don't think I would wear the jacket and pants together because it's a little much but never say never! What I love most is the material, it's like an embossed croc skin print with a sheen of gold.... bright fire engine 80's pant suit with huge shoulder pads and a hint of gold??!! I'm so there!!!! And what's the icing on this awesome mess??!!! it's vintage...SUPRE!!! is that even a thing?? who cares! it's effing hilarious!! ahahahahahahaha
