W I D E A W A K E thoughts

burning slowly in the afterglow

Posted in fashion by wideawakethoughts on March 10, 2010

Vintage suede jacket, seashell necklace, and sunglasses, digital Casio watch from Incu, scattered rings by Digby & Iona and from the markets, sass & bide The Unlimited bodysuit.

There might be a heaviness beneath my eyes but behind them my mind is still burning in the afterglow after my whirlwind trip to Sydney. My galaxy exploded into a brilliant storm of excitement over night; the 5am start was painless, although I suppose it’s impossible to stay in bed when your heart races you awake.

I don’t think it is the lack of sleep that has me so wiped out; rather, the frantic hour loose on Oxford Street in Paddington that followed my long lunch with Maz (who had layered jewellery that told a story of its own) our Account Manager at Sweaty Betty PR. A suede jacket, vintage sunglasses, and a teeny Casio; whimsical fashion finds that perfectly accessorised the afternoon of a day that played out like a dream.

    I am totally diggin that Casio. I have never shopped in Oxford yet. I am afraid I will have to at least have some large amounts of cash saved up. Nice layering/colouring by the way x

    That looks like the Novica princess trio ring? I’ve been lusting after it ever since I saw it on Lulu and your Mom’s blog !
