Basketball Diaries

After all my excitement about MBFWA I ended up in bed sick for most of the week and missed all but day 1 of the shows. To make up for it, and to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary on Saturday Henry and I decided to head to Surry Hills market (otherwise known as my favourite place in Sydney) and have lunch at Bourke Street Bakery which never disappoints. Just a relaxed celebration before a romantic dinner at our new favourite Japanese restaurant that evening. The market ended up being great as usual, I picked up a new brown beaded belt, a new camel pleated skirt and the amazing vintage pleather jacket I'm wearing in the above photo.

The amazing fringed pleather jacket that I scored at Surry Hills market on the weekend in all its fringey goodness.
