Wow I love both these sunglasses -and the general outfits. This is a Tommy Ton pic from an album of his Paris fashion week photos on
This pic kinda makes me wanna go back to being a blonde. I was platinum but currently I'm trying to discover what my natural colour is. Something I haven't seen in about 10 years. I must say it's nicer than I thought it would be which is a bonus!
The weather is warming up here in Melbourne. It has made me realise that I don't live in a freezing depressing grey world. It is so so so gorgeous in summer here in Australia. I always forget this fact in winter though.
In other news, Zoe and I are heading to Brisbane for the VALENTINO exhibition! It will be excellent!
