LAST SPRING


This is a major throwback to a windy Saturday morning last spring, exactly 33 weeks ago. It looks like that day my friend Mimi and I were feeling very fearless since not only did we venture into a forest, but I did it in high heeled boots and a dress... the usual attire one chooses for such an occasion, no?

MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE ON SET?
I think I'm going to have to say it is when I first participated in Fashion Week... yes, that was quite memorable. I was so unexperienced at the time... how was I to know models had personal dressers!

MY FAVOURITE FRAGRANCE IS...
I love all fragrances generally, but the one scent that I'm always drawn to is Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture. I am a lover of Vanilla and Caramel undertones in perfume so if I had to choose a signature scent, Viva La Juicy would have to be the one… although right now I have a bottle of Marc Jacobs Oh Lola which I use everyday.

THE BEST OUTFIT I'VE EVER WORN WAS... 
As predictable as it might seem, I would probably have to say my ball dress. It was short, black and white, peplum,and with a statement jeweled neckline. The shoes were open-toed and blacknwith about a two inch thick ankle strap. I cannot explain my love for these shoes, but lets just say I’ve entered into a Carrie Bradshaw level of obsession. As cliché as it is to admit, the dress fit like a glove the first time I zipped it and it has the most flattering cut. It is the only dress I have ever owned, w every single time I wear it, I feel good about myself. I feel like that is special. Every item of clothing has it’s bad day, which tend to coincide with your bad days, but this dress, this dress is different.

THE 3 MOST USED PIECES ON MY WARDROBE ARE...
It is embarassing to admit but my sports leggings would have to come at the top of the list, I mean, gym clothes are my go-to outfit if I don't feel like dressing up. Other than my beloved gym clothes, I am obsessed with these boots I just bought from Melissa. Unfortunately I don't wear the, as much as I would like to as they are very high, and being just under 6 foot tall already, I need very special occasions to wear them... unless of course I lived in Manhattan. I especially love my Deal Breaker Slouchy Fit Sass & Bide boyfriend jeans. You can wear them rolled up, but unlike many other jeans they look equally as great left to dotheir own thing as well.

5 MUST-HAVES FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON:
Summer has almost reached us in New Zealand so I am going to have to say, a good beach bag that can carry at least one book, a towell, sunscreen, your iPod,  water... you know the stuff. On top of tat I am quite the pyjama person, so I would say treat yourself to a luxury summer/winter pyjama set. Thirdly, I would go fora decent pair of sandals in my opinion they are the perfect complement for boyfriend jeans. I am really in need of a decent pair of baggy shorts. My sister just bought the most beautiful shorts from Sass & Bide that I actually had to pay her to wear one time. Yes, you heard me right, I had to pay my sister to wear her shorts. But the money was going to a worthy cause. Finally I am going to say some beautiful lingerie. Just because it can't be seen, doesn't means you shouldn't immerse yourself in full luxury.

MY FAVOURITE DESIGNERS ARE...
Chloé, Céline, Alexander Wang, Manning Cartell, Sass & Bide, and it's not exactly a designer, but Nike. 

I COMPULSIVELY BUY...
Pyjamas, bikinis, and décor.

STILETTOS ARE FOR...
Looking fabulous!

THE MOVIES I WATCH OVER & OVER AGAIN ARE...
The Holiday, Love Rosie (recently released), One Day, Sex and the City and The Great Gatsby. 

MY FAVOURITE BOOK IS...
Oh God, I find this honestly one of the hardest questions to answer, I have read too many books to decide. But if I had to say one on the spot right now... it would have to be The Fault in Our Stars. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good love story.

WEEKENVY IS ABOUT...
Just a personal journey through life I guess. My posting has been minimal lately; I have been scramped by exams and school so posting hasn't been my top priority. But eith the summer holidays approaching, Weekenvy is going to be completely reinvented,  possibly even a new name. I want it to become more of a personal experience for m readers, I want them to get to know the real me, even if I don't know who that is yet.

I WANT PEOPLE TO READ WEEKENVY AND...
Feel like the can relate to me. I want people to read a post, get all the way through it, and believe thet I am writing genuinely. But most importantly, I wamt people to be inspired.  I want people to read a post on my blog and find themselves feeling a warm pressure building in their chests from the excitement that comes from all the possibilities of life. At least that's how I feel, and there is something so beautiful about it that I cannot help but want everyone to feel equally as hopeful for life as I do.

À LA JANE

When it comes to dressing in jeans, I get inspired by plenty of people; Debbie Harry, Kate Moss, Mick Jagger... but the one person I find myself  looking up to whenever I choose to wear my old Levi's or my oversized jean jacket is Jane Birkin. So just in time for the end of the weekend, aiming to cure your Monday blues tomorrow, here is some inspiration on how to wear denim the cool & French way. Because really,  no one wears denim quite like Miss Jane.
