blazer. mossimo. pants. vintage. shirt. UO. shoes. JS. sunglasses. persol.

risky business.

Well finals have started. Sorry for being MIA. Living in the Southern Hemisphere means my year runs from February - November...therefore its nearing the end of the year. 5 long weeks of finals ahead of me. I wrote two this week and have heaps more to go. So before the real business starts, I went out with a few girlfriends tonight to watch the sunset...nothing beats the African sun. I promise you. magic.

I was definitely feeling a tad adventurous with this shirt on. Low, it is, but coupled with my blazer to cover any slips proved to be a perfect match.
Oh I also re-discovered this lipstick from my cruise ship days (I danced on one!) and since we got 30% off MAC and I had heaps of recyclables, free lipstick it was. It's a Glaze- called Hue. Hard to see in the picture, but its super natural and gives your lips a radiating glow. I don't wear much make-up, but this is now a must.
Tagged- yes. by the lovely lula of Hello Sailor ! ( ps- i'm obsessed with your name, lula). So here's a few tid-bits :
1. Clothes shop: very random + widespread. and will really look/buy anywhere. h&m. men's departments. aa. topshop. vintage. ebay. amazon
2. Furniture shop: @home. Scandinavian living. CB2.
3. Sweet: strawberries.organic chocolate.
4. City: New York. Paris. Vancouver. Cape Town. Auckland. Sydney. Kiev.
5. Drink: mint green tea. water. rooibos.
6. Music: stars. the strokes. tegan and sara. the bloc party. 80's. MGMT. bryan adams. broadway. SO much more.
7. Tv-Series: Not watching any at the moment. Sex and the city. Seinfeld.
8. Film: dirty dancing. breakfast at Tiffany's.
9. Workout: I danced for 18 years. So being active runs in my blood. I love everything. walking (like a new yorker-fast). pilates. bikram. spinning. running. hiking. dancing to good music. shopping (!)
10. Pastries: vegan cupcakes.
11. Coffee: after the BF bought a swiss espresso machine 2 months ago. I love it. But prefer green tea.

I TAG : amazing ashleigh from iamashleigh --- stunning susanna-cole from Girlmeetsnyc --- gorgeous geri from becauseimaddicted

~Blessings* as usual.

Caroline said...

the pleating detail on those pants is increeeeedible!

Eelie said...

I'm going through finals also so can absolutely relate to your fustration! : eeek

As the title says it was a tad risky but that blazer you mention provides a very good cover up! I've just realised you're from cape town? I have a friend that emigrated from there and my ex boyfriend was actually from Pretoria *spelling*. What a tiny world :)

Mel said...

hey sweetie, you look beautiful! so classy and sophisticated!! ps: I'm starting finals too eeek :( so not looking forward to it. good luck with yours love xxx

The Stylish Wanderer said...

you look great. I like the blazer.

ashleigh said...

hoorah i'm tagged.

and you danced on a ship! wow that sounds awesome. my friend is thinking of singing on one. too bad i get badly seasick. well i think i do. i did as a kid. ON TO YOUR OUTFIT MISSY. so fabulous. i love love that its business and then wham party top :) great style my dear.

Susanna-Cole said...

Oh. My. Gosh. Usually I would write off a black suit as kind of boring, but when you pair it with THAT shirt which I think I need to go track down ASAP, the whole look is KILLER!

And "Risky Business"... perfect title/caption for this look!

And aw, finals. Hate them! haha. But hope you ace all your finals, my dear! :)

And yes, me speechless because of you happens ALL THE TIME! Trust me! ;)

Aw, well thanks! I'm really considering that blunt bang now... :)

And oh my gosh, I hate when people come up to be and beg, or even if they're just on the streets. Homeless people are all over NYC. The sad thing is some of them are homeless by choice and/or will only use any money you give them for drugs/alcohol. I think the best way to give, is to donate to homeless shelters and such, that way I know my money is helping them, but in the right ways.

Oh and to answer your question, well I lived in Manhattan/NYC most this summer, going to the School of Visual Arts, but I am home with my family at the moment, I hope to make an official move to NYC soon! :)

Anyway, thanks so much for your comment! I love getting your comments, like mini-holidays in my day or something! Seriously they always make me light up with a big smile, and I appreciate them so much! :)


P.S. Oh and thanks for the tag, will try to put that in my next entry! :)

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
