Kinky Cocktails by the Sea

Ksubi Sunglasses
Joe Bananas paisley sheer top
Sass and Bide jeans
Timberland boat shoes
Polo Ralph Lauren bucket bag 

Paisley?! Again? You would think someone would have given me an intervention by now. And I know many of you may be bored with the whole me and paisley love situation going on, so I thought I do something a bit unconventional just to add some excitement in your life! And voila! The pelvic thrust. In all its glory. Yes, I know you love it. If you guys play nice I'll feature another one in my next post, just for you <3

So Lola took me to the launch of a new cocktail menu at Helm Bar in Darling Harbour and I decided to wear this sheer blouse with boat shoes to channel the seaside vibes. We were pampered with cocktails and a fabulous lunch amongst lovely company and an amazing view. It was such an enjoyable experience that I probably consumed my whole weeks worth of food in one sitting... food baby + sheer top = maybe not such a good idea. Lola on the other hand, came prepared and wore her special 'eating dress', which I'm pretty sure is actually a maternity gown (much like Joey from Friends' Thanksgiving pants).

Lioness blazer
Vintage maxi dress
Freelance cream wedges
Sunglasses from eBay

Our Saturday morning consisted of a cocktail tasting (we 'tasted' quite a bit, muahaha) courtesy of resident shaker Matt, who shimmied up these beautiful cocktails from their new menu. An espresso martini kicked off our morning and injected some life back into our hangover-weary minds, followed by a 'Sexy Saint', 'Senorita Margarita', 'Red Hot Mexican', 'Ginny Hendricks', 'Oriental Sweet Tart' and finished with a lush, still-unnamed passionfruit concoction. Kinky. Yum.


Sexy Saint. This one was a fiery little bitch.

Beautiful endless platters of food - antipasti, duck pancakes, mini chicken chimichangas, tempura prawns, 
deep-fried squid, seared salmon


Photographs by Lola at Figs & Brie.

  3. You look so happy, it's so cute :D I love both your outfits, they're breezy for such a harbour backdrop. But I'd kinda spazz if I saw all those platters before me... and I'm pretty sure that I've convinced myself that I can smell the duck pancakes from my laptop *__*
