Parma Date @ The Quarter

I had to run some errands in the city and try and buy some presents before I had to go to the dentist to check up on my ridiculous wisdom teeth. I had been meaning to get a heap of my Tiffanys jewellery cleaned but had never really gotten around to it but today I finally remembered to bring the box full of tarnished pretties with me and I'm so glad I did because they look like new now! It was so upsetting walking out of Tiffanys onto boring ol' Collins St. I had kind of forgotten I was in Melbourne and was just kind of expecting to walk out on to 5th Ave in New York. Ugh. 

Taylor came along with me so we could catch up and have lunch together so we head to our fave place in Degraves st, The Quarter

I feel that it's probably my mission in life to try a parma from every restaurant ever. This one was excellent but not enough sauce underneath the ham and cheese. Still worth every cent.

Nike + Trophy Wife Nails

I finallyyyyyyy decided to wear my new (to me) Ferris Bueller special edition Nikes! I've been lusting after these ever since they came out in 2008 but couldnt find them anywhere and when I started searching on eBay people were only selling mens sz 12's and I'm a ladies 8 to 9 which is like a mens 6 to 7... When they popped up in my size on ebay I HAD to have them. I was on a frantic bidding battle with someone for about half an hour trying to win these babies and it paid off haha 

They have a leopard interior and matching leopard laces which I haven't taken out of the packet yet.
The design is meant to be in line with this cutiepie below. I still cant get over how on point they are!

When we left the house Sam realised we were both wearing the same style of Nikes. 

I met up with my gals for nail dates with Trophy Wife Nail Art on Bridge Rd in Richmond. 

I was so stumped with what designs to get but in the end settled on these. I'm so in love with how they turned out! I cant wait to get a full set of each design closer to summer, especially the drippy ice cream one.

Another OOTD feat Kitengs

It has been so cold in Melbourne! I love this weather so much but I'm not entirely equipped for it. When we moved back to my folks place to start saving, we also had to start downsizing. I sold pretty much all my wintery things and I'm only really left with the things I had left at my folks place before we ever moved out. Lately I've been layering heaps of things under my ultimate Lindsay Weir jacket. To think I almost got rid of this beauty too! I've got to start building up my winter wardrobe but I still don't really have any room to fit any more clothes haha damn it!

Kitengs really felt like she needed to show off her little fat potbelly

While we were in New York I was told by a work friend to go to Century 21 and I thank the heavens above that she suggested it! A few days into our USA trip my fave little blue, cross body bag that I take overseas with me broke so I had to get something that was practical to use for the rest of the trip and something that would still be 'Melbourne appropriate' (Even though Melbourne and New York basically feel exactly the same style wise). We got to Century 21 and Sam was being THEEEEE biggest pain in my ass. He just was not in the mood for shopping that day at all, especially not in a crowded department store. But I told him to get over it because I was on a mission. A mission to find a perfect, practical and stylish bag. We scrounged around for a while and I pushed my way to the small rack that held the Marc Jacobs bags just hoping to find a cute tote to bring back home but I found this Plum miracle.
Was it big enough to fit the necessities? Yes.
Was it cute enough? Yes.
Would it go with my wardrobe? Yes.
It ticked all the boxes! I looked at the price tag... $200USD marked down from almost $500USD
I'm the kind of girl that feels uncomfortable spending over $50 for any one item of clothing/accessories but c'mon! When the hell am I ever going to find a discounted MJ bag like this in Australia?! NEVER, thats when! I picked it up and pushed myself right on to the checkout.
