Like many fashion lovers out there, I too have found a great undying crush on Olivia Palermo's way of dressing up. The mix & matching of accessories is undeniably genious and never fails to lit a light bulb in my mind - I never thought of that!!! Now that the City has been cancelled, It's great news that she has done Ads for ASOS and Mango and have managed to keep herself relevant in the game by appearing in editorials for Spain and British Vogue!!! It would be sad if her amazing sartorial choices are forever forgotten and no longer photographed! Even better news, she will have her own reality tv show (meaning 100% camera on her equals great view of her outfits for the day!) and there is an Olivia Palermo fashion line coming up??? Hope it's nothing like Whitney Port's!

I finally took the plunge and wrote my work a resignation letter! PHEW!!! I am relieved as I do not know what I was doing in that place.. and its takes me 3 hours daily to get to and from work! So, its the holidays, I have gifts to buy, endless shopping time, some cash saved up and amazing shoes and dresses that haven't seen the light of day to wear... I think I wont be looking for a job anytime soon... so my job is to blog and post pictures of what i get up to whilst jobless and loving it.. i know it wont last as we all know the bills keep coming and the cash aint flowing when we are jobless. So, lets not spoil it.. its the HOLIDAY season after all ey??? If you are jealous... Join me and Liberate Yourself!!

Launched on 29 October 2010! How could i forget?! Since last month I have planned how I'm going to print out a picture of what I want from the collection and get my brother to buy it for me as I am situated so far away from shops this days, working in Crows Nest and all. But, it slipped my mind and now I am just hoping that on Thursday there will still be even a tiny little Stella left in the coat hangers of target. Hopefully a few of my favorites will still be there.

I haven't posted anything for awhile. I have been busy with getting a routine going. Did my job searching, Its been 3 years since I have done some serious googling and job searching. And what made it even harder was that I was aiming to find a job in the fashion industry. I have been studying fashion for nearly 2 years and getting redundant from my job in the financial industry seems like a perfect opportunity. Well, I made myself very proud by nailing my first interview and getting a second interview with the General Manager of Pumpkin Patch. A kids clothing brand that is big in Australia and New Zealand. This happened more than 6 weeks ago. I was thrilled, but all the excitement died as the challenge wasn't there... and it was getting really.. how can I put this... blah.. And to add to the injury, as a starter in the industry my salary was just so low. So, im thinking.. Do I really love the fashion industry that I am willing to sacrifice my income and delay my future plans at the age of 24...or am I just an admirer.. and I really belong in the financial industry where I can be very useful and lets be honest, I can afford the clothes I love because my salary is not same as a teenagers'. So, I think I am the latter.. and I can say hello to shopping and travelling again because next week I am quiting my job and going back to my first family, the financial industry.. its going to be like the prodigal fashion minded daughter coming back because working in fashion ironically, doesn't give me the wings (aka money) to enjoy fashion!!! Its been great, but not that great. So to all of you out there that want to get in the industry at the age of 24, think about it. But if its for you, good luck :)

So, I'm back home, Down Under. I lived a life long dream of walking the streets I've seen so many times on the small and big screen. I've seen the romantic Empire State Building and the amazing Statue of Liberty. I've enjoyed the lavish life of shopping from 9am to 5pm and literally shopping til I drop. I've been lost in the concrete jungle while singing "new york, concrete jungle where dreams are made of" under my breath while strolling in the green rectangle Central Park on the famous NYC summer heat. Strolled around the famous museums and watched Phantom of the Opera at Broadway. Enjoyed the culture, lights, food and endless line of yellow cabs. New York.. I wouldn't mind coming back..

I am no Scott Schuman so do not judge my out of focus, blurry candid photos! Here are my sneaky shots from the Myer SS 10 backstage where I was assigned to dress a male model that was really... i dare say.. HOT.I loved Alex Box from Illasmasqua and her Cruella de Vil slash Daphne Guinness look. She wore the same outfit for 2 days in a row.. it must be her uniform. CHIC! Backstage crew went berserk when Kris Smith, Jessica Hart and Jeniffer Hawkins stepped out of the dressing rooms!
