Boy meets world + happy new years

I want to marry that outfit. I don't know what it's called, but for now I'll just call it skirt with suspenders, I want it.

High socks with converse shoes, yum.

I love this scene. It reminds me of Grease as well. I really adore the cut off denim shirt that sort of look like a long vest.

I tried to get a screen cap of the details on the skirt. I think that's a zipper at the front with two silver buttons. It looks like a floral skirt.

I grew up watching boy meets world. I love this tv series, it's funny and original. I love how in almost every episodes there's a lesson to be learned. A lesson in life. I watched it again a month ago. I only got up to the 5th season though. I was so inspired by the outfits they were wearing in the first few seasons. I love how they look in general. I'm completely in love with fashion from the 90s. I adore the cut off overall Chloe Sevigny is wearing. I used to love wearing overalls all the time, just because that's the only thing that fits me. The above pictures are taken from season 2 of boy meets world.

Happy new years everyone! I hope you all had a lovely year. I sure did, sort of. Do you have any new year resolution? I can never stick to my resolution, I give up half way! So this year I decided I should do the 365 project, one photograph a day. I'm flying back to Melbourne today, so excited.

Also, I'm still completely in love with this: Christopher Kane, Erdem.

I first stumbled upon twentysevennames twentysevennames a few weeks back when I was browsing through no. magazine. I fell in love with it instantly. Their 2010/2011 summer collection is perfection. It consists of mainly nude colours, frills, knits, and sheer materials. At a glance, the cob web lace tee reminds me of Hope Sandoval's outfit in one of her videos. I can't quite remember which video right now. I absolutely love the lilac coloured collar. Lately, I find myself loving outfits from the 90s. No.magazine is one of my favourite magazine too! Check it out. I love their editorials. I hope I can work there one day.

I'm going back to Melbourne next week. Super excited! My friend booked the hotel for Philip Island. We're planning to go there at the end of January. I can't wait for the beach. Merry christmas to everyone, I hope you had a lovely time with your family. Check out the song heartbreaker by Girls, the song is currently playing on loop in my head.

Days in my backyard

I'm back in Doha for the month, it's been alright so far but I'm running out of stuff to do! I'm quite excited to go back to Melbourne at the end of this month, despite the fact that I'll be spending new years in the plane. Oh the horror. Today is Qatar's National day, and my parents wants to go to the corniche where they are going to have carnivals, fireworks and such to celebrate for the event. I guess I'm quite excited to take velvet (my smena symbol) out. I wanted to get a fujilm instax 210 yesterday, but I didn't end up getting it because they ran out of film :(

What's everyone doing for new years and christmas? Also, I've been listening to a lot of blackbird blackbird lately. They're just gorgeous. This is my favourite song from them, I can't help but smile watching the video. The other video they have for this song is quite beautiful too.

A late sydney post


A few months back Celsy and I went to Sydney for five days! It was all great fun. We've never been to Sydney before so we really had that whole tourist excitement going on. Sydney is huge, such a busy city full of wandering tourists. We stayed across the Harbour Bridge at a suburb called Kirribilli. The suburb is gorgeous, it's like a tiny town all on its own. We stayed at a bed and breakfast called Glenferrie Lodge, it's a really welcoming lodge filled with families, old people, and backpackers. Even though it's a bit of a walk to the city, by a bit I mean it takes 45 minutes to walk across the bridge to get to the city. It's such a lovely feeling though, walking across the bridge, especially at night. I kinda miss it now.

We went to eat at "Pancakes on the Rocks", a popular pancakes place at Sydney, and it was amazing. We had chocolate pancakes! I've never had chocolate pancakes before, and wow it tasted so good. The second day at Sydney was crazy, we walked all the way from Kirribilli to Darling Harbour. I don't know how many kilometers we walked that day, but I can tell you this the soles of my shoes fell off because of it. I had to use super glue to fix it.
