Nadia Sarwar . i discovered this blogger via instagram .

Self described as;
City hopper
eBay stalker
Menswearer
Hat collector
35mm worshipper
Wordplayer
Micture Paker
Story creator
Syllable jiggler
Stranger watcher
Blashion fogger
Hair swisher
Camera hoarder

its quite evident from this description that she doesn’t create a ‘whimsical world’ of cupcakes, lollipops, macaroons and bullshit . What attracts me to Nadia’s blog is her unique style coinciding with her aptitude to capture a single moment insensible to most (a sound ability of j’s!). she successfully evokes emotion through a simple photograph conveying an unwritten story, one of which forces you to infinitely stare in order to put the pieces together . it makes you wonder what she is doing, where she is going and what she is thinking.
I am in awe of her long dark hair, fair skin, and dark lip tones . my attempt of a similar appearance would result in near resemblance to a withered sea witch… Her prodigal choice of clothing consists of simple individual pieces, yet, put together it’s just fucking amazing! can definitely envision her in a Balenciaga ad tailored for Russh Magazine!

She’s very Johnny Depp-esque…strange to some, but fucking cool! and obviously without the prominent bottle  of whisky glued to her hand .

spring, summer & pastels .

I tend to have random spurts of inspiration to post and in this case it’s because I have insomnia….my fault of course! note to self; stop napping after work to then wake up 6 hours later and then procrastinate in applying St Tropez fake tan. did i mention its 4:30am here in Australia!?

The weather is warming up fast and we’re starting to see the layers of clothes disappear – slowly being replaced by ripped shorts and flowy dresses . It’s even almost time to put the fake tan back in the cupboard and gladly replace it with natural sun kissed skin. I can’t help but get excited about the upcoming season and the trends it will bring .

It seems that throughout spring and summer we will see fabrics adorned with vivid colours, as well as soft neutrals and pastels – in particular, soft mint green has proved popular on the runway and on the likes of fashion icons such as Jessica Stein & Nicole Warne . We’re also seeing red as a prominent colour, lace and crochet tops, and not to mention floral prints still remain on the racks . I feel that when it does come to floral prints you need to be careful that you don’t end up looking like a flower threw up everywhere, my recommendation is to veer in the direction of Zimmermann, you can’t go wrong with their floral prints, they just utter perfection .

Coveted model mentor on Australia’s Next Top Model, Josh Flinn just happened to be standing next to me at the bar in Surry Hills – The Clock Hotel .
Oblivious to anything but my beverage being made in front of me, my sister nudged me and told me to look and see who was standing to my left .
“excuse me, sorry to interrupt but do I know you from somewhere you look familiar?”
“that’s ok!” he replies
“are you on tv?”
He smiles at me
“top model?”
“yes I am!” he replied, followed by a discussion entailing his envy for my hair and a photo!
He was so lovely, the moment I introduced myself he spoke to me as though we were old friends . Sometimes you forget that people with a celebrity status can be normal too .
