Spot the Difference

Shirt: Glassons
Skirt: Gorman
Clutch/Wallet: Marc Jacobs
Ring: Samantha Wills
Shoes: Alias Mae

My dad bought this amazing Gorman skirt for me today! If any of you Australian girls have never checked out their stuff, I suggest you do. Their stores and website are stocked with patterned skirts and jeans, colourful knits and to-die-for accessories. The brand Samantha Wills was also another great find. Their bohemian pieces are unique and come in pretty wooden boxes. I hope all of you had a great weekend!

Happy Scrapbook

I've decided to begin a regular feature on La Golden Closet - a Happy Scrapbook! Each week or so I will post some of the things that made me happy during those seven days. Please enjoy!

Vintage coin purse

I found this coin purse hanging around my room and realised how gorgeous it was. I just love finding little things like this! It was my granny's and she must have given it to me at some point in time.

Chanel lip gloss in No. 164
Dior Diorshow blackout mascara in No. 099
DIY silk pillow, fabric from Tessuti fabrics

I made this pillow about two weeks ago from some amazing silk I found in Sydney. It's such an unusual pattern! The two makeup pieces are my lifesavers - they're probably used everyday and the quality is beautiful.

Hmong tribe handmade clutch - from markets in Thailand

My sister bought this brilliant clutch for me when she travelled to Thailand a few weeks ago. It's so bright and ethnic and I use it to hold all the bits and pieces on my desk.

Art print - J.M.W. Turner from the Tate Britain
Vintage glass box
Sephora by O.P.I nail colour in 'Read My Palm'

J.M.W. Turner has always been one of my favourite artists. When I was able to see the Tate Britain exhibition of his works back when I was in London in January, I was blown away. Each individual piece is more stunning than the last, so I purchased this small print for my bedside table. The glass box is another gift from my granny, and the nail colour was a gift from a friend who travelled to Hawaii last year.
