Glebe Markets

So after months of deliberation me and my good friend Alisha decided to go through with plans for a market stall. Sifting through the countless markets available in Sydney, we finally settled for Glebe markets, not really knowing what to expect. Last minute panic over the weather, our stall set up, the weather, pricing and the weather ensued -but we eventually made it. Thankfully it was a beautiful day, but being the newbs we were we had not brought a gazebo -resulting in sun-bronzed (read: burnt) arms.
Our stall

Clothes for cheap

Jewellery as well

Cards and notebooks

Things got a little messy

Some "in the making" pictures: 

Though the day started off sluggish, things picked up after lunch (just as we were about to call it quits!)
Met some wonderful people -Rachel (who was kind enough to take a photo of us) and two lovely girls who I pretty much ambushed as they passed... (thanks for the first sale of the day!) 
All in all, a learning curb and a delightful experience! Plans are in progress for a joint online store.. hopefully :)


A day in the city

Protesters on a chilly afternoon


Lovers on a bench, framed by flowers (what a stalker shot!)


Inspiration -a trip to the Art gallery NSW

Japanese artist: Eikoh Hosoe; Kamaitachi series
His darkly amusing, fairytale-like photos made my day
The series follows a supernatural being recollected from Hosoe's childhood in the countryside. 
A blend of nostalgia, beauty and fury...

'Emily' by Rah Fizelle



Bondi Beach one afternoon. The light was rather blue, making everything look more special and almost spring-like (oh if only it were).

Nevertheless it was a lovely sunny winter afternoon well spent by drinking coffees rather than actually getting into the water.


 Note: none of these images have been edited, so the blue-ness of them all was genuinely there


Rapunzel, rapunzel...

Oh sheltered princess, run wild.

Model: Kookai Summer 08/09 'Between Night and Day' in RUSSH Aus, Sept/Oct 08

I got very excited about sketching again.This was the result. A combination of pencil sketching and a bit of Photoshop. Tell me what you think..  

I love my maxis

A recent interest in maxi skirts spurred many thrifting trips in search of them. I just love how feminine they look. These below are all from various opshops around Sydney at ridiculously low prices...

Love the blue of this one. It's super soft and shapely.

This one is quite structured and almost painfully tight at the waist..

 I've been told there's a nautical vibe about this one. It's made of wool, making it perfect for winter.  

This is the first maxi skirt I bought. It's from the Summer Hill Anglicare depot in Sydney. Good for frolicking in.



More free time to do some actual sketching...
Pictures coming soon..... :)
