I've never seen an episode of Game of Thrones in my life, but thanks to the power of the Internet and social media I've become well acquainted with the "Winter is coming" quote.
There's a chill in the air in Sydney town of late and it's a sign that my favourite season autumn (mainly due to the fact that my birthday is in May) is coming to a close and we now have to start layering up. I've always been a fan of baring shoulders and/or legs so this transition is particularly tough on me.
I've compiled a mini wishlist for winter to make myself feel a little better about the cooler months that are approaching and I've only just realised that it consists of all black errrthang. Fitting, as this is pretty much my failsafe combination of colours (or lack of, rather).
Clockwise from left:
Celeste Tesoreiro Secret Valley Necklace
I've loved Celeste's blog for what feels like years now and her namesake label showcases her gorgeous clothing and jewellery designs that stays true to killer style. I've always been a fan of quartz jewellery and this silver chained beauty is perfection!
Dannika Zen Noir Jacket
I have never been disappointed with a Dannika Zen purchase. Although I may be on a uni student budget, I feel that Dannika's pieces are so worth the price tag and are items of clothing that you will love more and more over time. This Italian wool and leather mix jacket is the ultimate, I'll be comparing every jacket I see to this one right here. There's something so sexy about it and I love the unisex feel to it. And I'm sure it would keep me ridiculously warm during the winter...
I may be sugar-free at the moment but that doesn't mean I can't indulge in a bit of sweetness. These candles from Bombardier Designs are my absolute favourites. Gorgeous packaging and in the most delicious scents, really what's not to love? The French Vanilla in particular is so comforting and homely, there's nothing like filling a room with the scent of a beautiful candle.
Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic in Black Leather
When I saw this glorious thing in David Jones in the city I fell in love. The only thing was stopping me from purchasing was the $2499.00 price tag. Since that fateful day I haven't stopped thinking about it. When I first saw it online I thought it would be too small to fit my everyday essentials as I'm used to toting around EVERYTHING with me at all times. However, in person, it is the perfect size to fit everything that I really need to be carrying. Downsizing may prove a bit of a challenge but with this beauty in my possession I think I'd be able to do it.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone
There is nothing I love more than a good highlighter. I've stayed faithful to my trusty NARS Copacobana multiple for almost two years now and while I love that stuff to death, I think it's time for a change. Enter Shimmering Skin Perfector. It's liquid consistency is a dream to blend into the skin and also works well when mixed in with liquid foundation to give a gorgeous glowing complexion - you gotta love a multitasking product! After all, I'll need something to help brighten up my days when the weather begins looking dull!
Willow Work Shoes in Black
So these may not be the most practical choice for a winter shoe, but I'll risk freezing my feet off in these beautiful, beautiful things. I've been wanting a great pair of criss-crossed lace-up booties for about two seasons now and the shoe gods have finally listened and delivered these incredible boots. Although not sure if they heard me when I said I was a uni student. I can definitely justify the $595 though because I'm sure I will get a great work out from these babies. I mean if I wear them every day for 2 years that's, what, 81c per wear? Sounds like a done deal.
