LV Leopard Scarf Gris! Woooo!

The weather is so nice in Perth today. I walked around in a cardigan - in WINTER!
Perth has "winter" Melbourne has winter.
It's been really cold all week and now that I go back tomorrow its going to be 23. Clearly, Mother Nature hates me.
I've suspected this for a while now but I think this week confirmed it.
I'm trying to think of the farmers. Farmers need the rain. Yesss.

Anyway, HERE IS MY NEW SCARF. hsdlfkjsldfiosudf. yessssssss.
It was a pain in the ass to get. Got less than average service from some people at LV.
Ughhh. Went on a goose chase around Melbourne.
Only to have it repeated again the next week trying to get D a tie. Not so happy with them lately. Although, I met a lovely LV SA in Perth called Kate though. If Perth people are looking for a nice SA that doesn't act snooty then go see her.
I got this new leopard scarf in black and greeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
It's still cold in Melbourne so I will get wear out of it.

I have to make this quick because a friend is on their way to town to meet for a coffee.
Here is a close up of the scarf print.
There is this awful hot pink graffiti style LOUIS VUITTON in the SS style writing on the bottom. Which I like to tuck on the inside.

I took this on accident but I'm sure glad I did.
In this angle I look about 10kg skinnier.
I AM KEEPING IT FOREVER. I will show my kids this photo and say " Your mum had some nice pins"
HA. They wont buy it.
However. I am going to try and take all photos on this angle from now on.

On Ds Bday we went to 1907 in Perth.
It was nice. I think the place is called 1907 because the building was built in 1907.

I wore this Elizabeth & James top that I have posted before.
I got THREADING. It was pretty terrifying.
I'm still unsure about threading. I feel like she took nearly all my eyebrows off.
I had hardly any to begin with. Now even less!

This dish below was some sort of artichoke risotto with parmesan snap and roasted whole artichoke.
My fav dish was the first one which was a soup. No photo :( booo.

Here is some vegetables arranged all arty.
I like these type of dishes.
Call me boring, but I like plain vegetables. I think they taste nice. No need for over saucing.
It's my British blood taking over my taste buds!

Here was some sort of tortellini. Cant remember the filling. But I remember thinking I'd like another 10 on the plate so it can be a real dinner.
Hahaha. It was nice.

Mushroom gnocchi with truffle.
I have to say, I DONT like truffle.
I think it tastes like dirt.
I don't understand why people go nuts for it.
It's very meh to me.

Here was some dessert.
The fairy floss was nice. I think the ice-cream was maybe mango.
I have no idea why they served baklava. That was my only real dislike of the night.
I just feel like this isn't something you serve at a restaurant that isn't greek.
It's too easy/cheap of a dessert.
It's something yiayia makes and you eat it to make her happy.
It's not a degustation dessert.

There were other dishes but I didn't take photos of all of them.
I also didn't take a photo of inside the place so here is some photos I got from their website.
I like the horse.

Overall we enjoyed the evening. The degustation is LONG. We were there for 4+ hours. Zzzz
But you can just order entrées mains etc for a quicker dinner.
Here is the website for you Perth peeps.

Here is a photo from the other day down on Hay st.
I love this statue.
It's the best.
I wear this Kookai dress when I feel fat. Which is often.
I wore this cardigan from Topshop again and frumped around Perth feeling fat and sorry for myself.

Today D and I had pizzas for lunch. They looked nice so I took some photos.

This isn't relevant to this post but I wanted to share.
I bought this Philosophy kit a few weeks back from Mecca.
I really liked it.
It did give me a pimple on my lip but I think that was my fault. I dunno. But my skin looked and felt v nice.

The other week D looked like a zombie. Or someone who hadn't slept in a week ( highly likely).
I forced him to do this. He acted like such a baby but then after his skin looked so much nicer. More fresh looking and less zombie looking.
He claims it has a "BURNY" feeling.
But the beauty therapists call this "warming sensation"
Anyway, I thought I would post about my experience for those girls who like to exfoliate their face.
I think because it has a 2 step process and has the warming feeling, you feel like it does something more. Haha. How silly. I dunno.
But when I had some professional facials it had the same kind of effect and feeling.
So I feel I'm doing a bit of a DIY at home facial for a quarter of the price.

Ok MUST go.
No time for proof read.
I hope this post made sense.
Have a lovely weekend guys!!


  1. I know that pizza place and it is amazing!

  2. I'm pretty much in love with every item in your wardrobe. That scarf is amazing. I wear a scarf every day of the year, even in summer (and in Brisbane that can get interesting). I think I might have to invest in a trip to LV...

    Love the Kookai dress outfit. I'm all about cardigans recently.

    Great blog :)

  3. yay so glad you're back :) Love the scarf, although being a Brissy girl we have around 2 days a year when we can get away with a scarf! Love philosophy products and exfoliating, I might even treat myself to it.... hope you have a good weekend.

  4. ahh I feel the same way about truffles!! I thought I was the only one because people are crazy for them and they're so expensive!! lol I ordered the truffle pasta at Bistro Vue last year and was like bleugh!! never again!

    love love love the scarf in black and grey.. very Melbourne :)

  5. your Elizabeth & James top is fantastic!

  6. how often are you in perth? I've been meaning to go to 1907 for aaaages but never have...ive heard their cocktails are amazing?

    And nice scarf...anything leopard i instantly fall in love with xx

  7. Hi Cotton;)
    Finally a new post girly:)

    You have been missed-have a great day!


  8. I used to work for the company who owns 1907. The offices are upstairs and the internal elevator is hidden behind the curtains behind the horse. I can't tell you how many times I'd walk out and bump into that darn horse! He's still v cool though :)
    The 1907 Bar next door makes amazeball cocktails and they generally make a new one each week.

  9. I'm getting hungry just by looking at those pizzas!

  10. you are NOT fat you are TINY! All that food looks so amazing and I love your posts :)

  11. My Boyf, Mr Melbs is in Perth at the mo on business, he's been away since Tues and I miss him lots:-( Can you say hi to him from me??!!

    Looking fierce Cotton xx

  12. Hi cotton! seeing the brown and grey scarf on you I like the grey one way more! probably because your hair seems more ashy, cooler-tones than before?! dunno. the scarf is cashmire & silk - does it get hot and sweaty as soon as you move around a bit? Didn't you bring any click-clack to Perth? I could imagine them as a daily-accessoire like the scarf.
    PS: there is more food on my blog. This time from the sommer resort region im Upper Austria :)

  13. Ooh that scarf is most excellent. Pity about the sucky SAs though. And baklava for dessert? After teeny tiny tortellini and truffles? Agree, it's quite odd. I swear I always get food cravings after visiting your blog - I'm thinking pizza for lunch now! haha

  14. I like to jump on that man after a few drinkies. Where is the pizza place?

  15. My God the THIN-NESS!!!!!! Well done with the camera angle. That food is amazing. Loving the leopard scarf.xxxxxxxxxx

  16. hommmm nom nom nom the pizzas look deliciousss!!!! Love your scraf (L)

    PS. I like my vegies plain too hehe

  17. I just wanted to say your blog is the only blog I follow. Your style is so exactly what I want to emulate because it is so classic, most Australian girls wear many colours at once and look like a gelato in my opinion. I love the way you don't show too much skin also, a lot of Australian girls show way too much flesh and end up looking cheap, or like they are going to the beach in the middle of the CBD. It pays to have a little class I believe.

    I can see that you have drawn inspiration from overseas fashion. I love it.

  18. in LOVE with that scarf - Hopefully the NYC store has one in stock! it's on my (long but could be longer) shopping list! haha.

    Looking Fantastic as per usual.

  19. I don't travel my own city enough, Haven't been to 1907 or that pizza place - must go! x Z

  20. Very nice scarf, hope you get better LV staff members serving you next time.

    The food all look amazing and I agree, how about 10 more tortellini's to make it seem like dinner lol

    The pizza looks good too, it's thin. Was the dough nice and elastic?

    Perth seems like such a great place and you look like you had fun.

  21. The food looks amazing! I laughed when you said your favourite part was the soup though ha ha! Baklava for dessert is a teeny bit weird! The pink fluffy thing looked cute though like a little cloud!

    I love the scarf too! It was worth the effort to get ha ha! Ohhh you defintely don't need a camera angle to look thinner! You're beautiful! X

  22. THE FOOOOOOOD! i miss visiting your blog and drooling over all the food photos. yups, im back to blogging! hehe

    you're looking fabulous as always girl and your LV scarf is TDF.

  23. Your blog always makes me hungry!!! Nice scarf!

  24. ohhhhhhh all the foor looks SO good!
    especially the dessert haha :)
    gorgeous scarf - jealous =)


  25. I like the new scarf.... Cant believe i haven't noticed it. Maybe we have just been exercising too much
