Photos by Uppy Cee
Remember when I told you I would never shoot in the morning? Well I take that back. Yesterday morning I sacrificed precious sleep time in my big toasty cinnamon bun of a bed to take these rooftop sunrise photos with my friend and photographer, Uppy. We were aiming for that SoCal rooftop sun drenched feel but unfortunately the closest thing we could find was the rooftop carpark of our local shopping centre. We were greeted by weird stares from gym-goers and retail staff alike and froze to death in the process, but persevered just for you all you blog.
The next chapter in my love/ hate relationship with Zara opens with this dip dye/ ombre blue shirt which I was immediately drawn to while in Osaka. I contemplated purchasing but dismissed it quickly as being too 'hippy'. Big mistake. I couldn't find it in any other Zara I visited throughout Japan and knowing Sydney's track record, knew I wouldn't be able to find it back home. My yearning for the shirt grew stronger after I spotted it on Cheyenne Meets Chanel (I'll admit I often want what others have) and there was one point where I was so desperate I was going to use a parcel forwarding service from Japan and buy it from the online store. Feeling optimistic one afternoon after uni, I walked into Zara and sure enough there it was. And all was finally right in the world.
My posts have been rather didactic lately: trust your boyfriend's judgement, invest your money in staple pieces, less is more. Today's lesson is: buy whatever you like when you're on holiday because a) you're on holiday! and b) in most situations you can't shop/ think like you do when you're at home, contemplate and go back the next day to purchase. You see it, you like it, you buy it.
PS. Hope you like my collab with Uppy. I certainly did so hopefully I'll be shooting with her again sometime next week. You can head on over to her page and check out some of her other work x
