So I've been in Seoul for the last couple of days, and have been such a super hardcore tourist (and shopper) that I've been neglecting blogging a bit! Anyway, these shots are from a recent collaboration with NastyGal - Check out our Brisbane City Guide and Guest Edit :D on NastyGal which are now up!

GRADIENT

 Hi cuties - I hope you are all swell! For the first time in ages, I have a huge back log of posts and the free time to post them too! Anyway these are simple outfits Tas and I wore months ago, on a day spent shopping around and frolicking in Sydney. We each actually wore these outfits on separate days however I decided to share them together as they mesh well together :)

INSTA-MAY

 I've decided that this insta-sharing will become a monthly affair. These little squares summarise the best of my (particularly my tastebuds') adventures over the past month... (follow me @fablihareza and Tasfia @so__quietly
Brisbane City from across the river on a perfect sunny day // I personally think granola and muesli are most delicious with almond milk. My fave bowl of granola hails from Corner Stone Cafe in Toowong
One of my favourite, simple weekday homemade lunches: just some rye-sourdough with smoked salmon, hummus,  dill, brie cheese and cherry tomatos // Tasfia and I frolicking around Paddington in Ksubi dress, Josh Goot top and Camilla and Marc jeans
Recuperating post work with some delish red velvet cake and caramel-banana muffin and hot chocolate // One night's outfit involving Gail Sorronda crop top, Knots and Knits bag, Provensen shoes, Romance was Born jeans and Chronicles of Never sunglasses
Post ice-cream date shot of Tasfia wearing Stolen Girlfriend's Club top, Stylestalker bomber, Deadly Ponies bag and Country Road jeans // FROYO from Noggi. I dissapprove of their lack of self service because they just can't get the yoghurt to topping ratio right!
At the seaside // Gelato for breakfast at James Street Market
Tasfia in Josh Goot top , Friend of Mine skirt, Deadly Ponies bag and Zara sandals/ One of my favourite places for a fresh healthy breakfast - Sourced Grocer.

Delicious breakfast at Shucked in Newstead - I had the breakfast Tiramisu with expresso soaked muesli, with mascarpone, raspberry coulis and shaved chocolate
Shopping on James St wearing Ksubi // Eating my chocolate chip pancakes in my favourite unkempt garden patch. All modesty aside, I make the BEST chocoate chip pancakes

PISCES

Yes,  I know what you may be thinking - under the sea dress print + fishy background + shell necklace equals borderline aqua-themed overkill. But, to my defence (1) the wall was a cute coincidence and (2) there is also a large possibly that I am a bit too excited about my approaching summer getaway where I intend to make pretty aquatic friends like these :P. Anyway, this is the second part of my collaboration with GlamCorner  - a rad outlet for hiring designer dresses for that special occasion. This Sara Phillips dress is my absolute fave from the GlamCorner collection. Its molluscan/echinoderm print presses so many of the right buttons for me plus it also has the most flattering silhouette. 
Anyway, at the moment I am overseas but I am on my biannual 'visiting the relatives' trip to Bangladesh for the next four days! After that I set off to a little vacation to South Korea, my favourite place I have travelled to yet. Prepare yourself to be bombarded with 1001 pictures from my trip

PERMEATE

So right now I'm sitting around, in transit at the airport lounge. I've already sufficiently stalked everyone on instagram, checked out all my favourite blogs and eaten as many complimentary cashews and cakes as I can stomach and so all I really have left to do is post one of the many many blog posts that I have sitting in my drafts, just waiting to be posted. I still have outfit posts from months and months ago which I just haven't gotten around to posting, this being one of them! Here Tasfia is wearing one of her most treasured wardrobe items, Her Claude Maus fur/leather jacket, paired with a simple textural skirt and patterned top :) I've been missing the twinnie (Tasfia) who has been rendevousing overseas a week ahead of me but we will be reunited very soon!

CORTICAL

This divine, Greek goddess-eque dress I'm sporting is one  of my favourite picks from GlamCorner, one of the raddest sites to have hit the online fashion scene. Whenever I buy an outfit, I have a clear rule that I have to wear its worth. However, when it comes to buying a dress for a special occasion it is hard to meet this policy because formal/special occasion dresses are the priciest. And, no matter how much you want to push the "I'll wear it all the time" card, in reality, you don't want to wear the same dress on many special occasions/parties - it defeats the purpose of getting all glammified and feeling special. GlamCorner is the niftiest solution to this predicament - it is a portal for hiring designer dresses (by some of my favourite designers like Sara Phillips, Life with Bird, Jayson Brundson etc.) for that special occasion at a small slice of the retail place! 
Anyway I've been grinning ear to ear today (like this :D), well since 10am anyway when I finally freed myself from one of the greatest forms of action potential, skeletal muscle and textbook induced tortures - my physiology exam! I have a whole month of vacation ahead and I can't wait to share all the adventures I get up to with you :) But right now, In this cold and gloomy weather, I plan to make myself a hot chocolate, catch up with whats been going on the blogosphere, and curl up in bed until dinner time  :D

DENIM CO II


Here is the second installment of our collaboration with one our favourite boutiques,  Denim Co. In case you missed the first part, we wanted to share some of our fave looks from the Denim Co winter collection to give you some ideas on how to look sassy in these cooler months! :)  This post is featuring 'winter brights', my favorite winter trend (and pretty much my policy for dressing for the rest of the year too).  I'm wearing this stunning topaz blue dress by Kirrily Johnston. A longer dress isn't something I would usually go for but I think the smexy low neckline is what makes it work for me. Plus wearing it with this fun Sara Phillips blazer really adds an extra umph to the outfit. Tasfia doens't do prints too often, and so her favourite way to do colour in winter is through colour blocking...
Anyway I was planning on making this post MUCH MUCH earlier on however I've been totally swamped by exam studying recently that I haven't had the time to do much else!
