Woman in Red

ASOS cropped top, $13.60
Ladakh skirt via Beginning Boutique
Sportsgirl floral backseam tights / round sunnies / chunky scarf
Stella McCartney for Target bangle
Beginning Boutique ring
Wittner boots

I've been buying a lot of red lately. I love the colour red in clothing, it reminds me of so many
different things - some good, some not-so-good - fire, passion, tomatoes, lipstick, blood,
strawberries, rubies, traffic lights...and it suits my skin tone too. Winner!

This croptop is similar to an American Apparel one I've been eyeing off for a while, but it's less
than half the price - plus I had to use my 50 pound ASOS voucher from uNiDays! The scarf I bought
on the Sportsgirl website on VOSN, so I got 20% of and free shipping :) This skirt I got from BB
and I adore it. It has a suede-like feel to it but it's also kinda velvety, and the little gold cowgirl detail
on the waistband adds a little somethin' somethin' to it too.

Also - I'm selling some stuff that I never wear/impulse bought/doesn't fit on eBay if you wanna
check it out!

ALSO; I have instagram come and say hello, I'm @teeandfameblog :)

Winter Solstice.

Today: I was meeting a good friend for coffee in Degraves St, she was running heaps late
due to being in London interning for the last 6 months and her body-clock being all whacked up
...ANDDD my train took the city loop. So I took a detour to Melbourne Central :)

It was fate.

So I found out that Wittner are having a $100 & under leather boot sale!!!! Hells yeahhhhhh.
I couldn't resist heading in and hunting down a bargain ;)

Picked up these Wittner 'Cookie' ankle boots in Black Pony Hair for $100 and they are
absolutely INCREDIBLE. So comfy, and they look amazeballs. I can't stop stroking them oh
my god haha that's creepy isn't it? Shhhhhhh guys.

After catching up with above-mentioned been-in-London friend (she had so many stories to
tell me!), I saw my lovely muso buddy Cotter who's living in Tasmania atm. He's a
singer-songwriter and a saxophone player. I miss him heaps! Here he is, isn't he cute :)

Yep we got caught in the torrential downpour and took selfies of the aftermath...

Sass & Bide military coat
Dotti panelled pants (similar here)
Jeanswest (old) sheer floral shirt (similar here)
Beginning Boutique silver neckplate
Tony Bianco boots (similar here)

Hope everyone's been staying warm because it's FREEEEEZING in Melbourne atm! Brrr.

Oh and how did everyone go with VOSN? I did have $800+ combined in all my carts for all
the different online shops...but luckily I had the self restraint to empty my cart
and the only place that took my $$$ was Sportsgirl. Love you Sportsgirl!

opening ceremony x adidas originals

Opening Ceremony have collaborated with adidas Originals
on a FW12 capsule collection to launch the London Olympics in style,
and also to celebrate Opening Ceremony's first London store. I am a
definite fan of this super cool collab!

Diggin' the 90s + sport-luxe vibe to these pieces; it's like 90s street attitude
had a baby with swimming and cycling to produce bold florals and paisleys
and bright colours blended with, according to OC, 'dynamic' fabrics: you've got
dry-swim spandex, neoprene, nylon twills, and reflective finishes married
to incredibly crisp & sleek cuts.

This collection will be available next month so keep your eyes out for when it
hits stores (and probably blogger & celeb wardrobes!)

Shot by Josh Olins and styled by Jay Massacret, the campaign features models
Xiao Wen Ju, Camille Rowe, Jordan Torres, and Shane Gibson.

What do you guys think? Do these pieces translate to everyday wear?

Tom Gunn - Melbourne launch.

Shannon & Gabrielle, Tom Gunn designers!

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending the launch party of Aussie label
Tom Gunn's Melbourne store on Howey Place, just off Little Collins St in the CBD.
And boy, was it a wonderful store!

Designers Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn launched their first collection of women's
footwear in 2008, and since then they have become a well-adored brand, I first saw
their shoes on The Iconic earlier this year, and I was drawn to the gorgeous
leathers, rich colours and unique cut-outs and shapes.

On arrival, I was greeted with champagne and mini cupcakes - amazing food and amazing
shoes - what more could a girl want? I had an interesting time talking to both designers
for Tom Gunn, as well as Megan Todd, brains behind the genius Knots & Knits
bags you've seen in the above pics - they're hand-knitted with giant knitting needles!

The space itself is minimal, small yet cosy and showcases the best of what's in store,
I'd definitely recommend anyone in Melbourne to pop in to say hello or marvel at
the high-quality, lovely shoes/bags in there! There is a gold pair of leather ankle
boots I'm kinda drooling over too...so chances are I'll be making another trip down
that way very soon!!!

VIC 3000
(off Lt. Collins St, inbetween Elizabeth & Swanston St)

staple + stylestalker.

Stylestalker teen spirit dress (from Dakota 501) / Staple the Label knit jumper (get it @ The Iconic)/
Alannah Hill thigh-high socks / Tony Bianco (old) suede wedges
Beginning Boutique ring / Chanel peridot nail polish

Finally easing into Winter - it's a bit of a love/hate relationship for me.
On the one hand I hate the wind and the rain and the cold - I've always been
a music festival/beach/ice-cream/carefree picnic-ing sun-lover..but on the
other hand snuggling up in bed with a cup of tea and a book is my ultimate
luxury, & I'm in love with Winter fashion and layering and scarves and boots!!

This outfit is one of my faves - it's comfy as hell AND acceptable to wear out ;)
Got the black stylestalker dress from dakota 501 on Chapel St, I live basically
a 5 minute walk from that store and they stock the most incredible pieces...
which is awesome but also really, really bad :/

Oooh & & & I bought my first Chanel nail polish - it's peridot which is a gold
with a greenish tinge, it's really hard t describe! Great quality of course,
but actually I find the gold to be a little tacky. I'd prefer a matte gold.

Eep, well anyway I am pretty much almost officially on holidays, just a piano exam
to go on Tues (the 19th) and then FREEDOMMMMM. I'm going to Queensland booyeah.

Ksubi, along with a gajillion other of my fave brands, are holding a sale!
Here are my picks from the Ksubi sale, available both in-store & online :)

Twill Jacket.

Love the leopard print panels on this!

Leather Skirt.

This baby is tough yet sexy - leather + leopard is a great combo!

Panelled Zip Blazer.

Flannel, leopard print, chambray and khaki twill? Self-explanatorily amazeballs.

Long-sleeve Knit Jumper.

Perfection in a grey knit with boxy cut-out at the front :)

These items would be welcomed into my Winter wardrobe, seriously. I did
tentatively make June a no-new-clothes month...but sales adasafsgfhsdhsg!!

Went shopping with mama bear today and bought her a Decjuba scarf and Metalicus
cardigan on sale - so that was lovely. Somehow managed to resist buying
anything for myself so I'm pretty damn proud!

Hope everyone's had a good long weekend if you're in Australia - it was the
Queen's Birthday weekend and I think most people had yesterday off, lucky ducks!
(I did too & celebrated two lovely people's bdays so I am a lucky duck!)

Now that tee+fame blog has reached 400 friends on GFC I think it's time to combine the two and give a little something back to my loyal followers!

THE DARK HORSE is an online jewellery boutique focusing on selling jewellery from around the globe.
The boutique is influenced by the beauty surrounding us, aiming to make unique, niche and international

which means you can pay off an item while you wear it! I'm personally crazily obsessed with being able to
lay-by stuff, I think it's an awesome invention!

The jewellery we wear tells a story of who we are, where we have been or who we want to be.
