(Shirt - Subtitled, Jeans - Cheap Monday, Belt - Hermes, Shoes - Wittner)

Welcome to Dodgy Iphone Photos With Helen, Edition #459285. With the beginning of the school term marks the beginning of me being an infrequent blogger and all round lazy human being, hence using my phone to take photos in my mirror...But never fear, fashion week is right around the corner (tomorrow!) and hopefully I shall have some great things to share from that. To get your daily dose of me (WHO WOULDN'T WANT THAT????), follow me on twitter and instagram (@hhhhhhhhhhhelen).

"Recently I had a little skype call with the wonderful Helen who runs an awesome tumblr and blogspot. We talked about everything under the sun, from clothes that we’ll never be able to afford to our mutual hate of Forever New, to being recognised on the street and sex in a tent. Our little chat turned into an epic hour and a half long conversation and we definitely strayed from the questions that I’d intended to ask her, but I loved talking to her about fashion and life in general. Below are a few questions that I managed to pluck out of our long talk."

(Zara top, Hunt No More skirt, Dolce Vita Boots)
About to embark on my second ever drive. I really don't think I'm equipped to be on the roads. I'm a danger to society. But while I'm out terrorizing the general public on the streets of Sydney, I at least get to break in my favourite new skirt by the oddly appropriate label of 'Hunt No More'.One less thing on my wishlist and hopefully lessening the strain on my ever diminishing savings.

My favourite place in the world. I've finally got it to where I am happy with it, although I suspect in a month or two I will be hit by a sudden impulse for a change and be moving furniture at 3 in the morning...A bit over a year ago my room looked like this, but now I've really stripped it down and I feel like the vibe is much more relaxed and calming, expecially on days when my candles are lit with russh and a steaming cup of green tea by my side. If anyone has photos of their room, I'd love to see, or even just a link to a good interiors blog, for pictures to add to my ever growing room inspiration folder.

The current most urgent items on my wishlist in doodle form. If anyone can help me hunt down the fur gillet I will send you infinite internet love.

(cut up old t-shirt, shorts/necklace from new york, aldo boots, secondhand bag)

I never thought I would be one to wear a locket but for some reason lately I have been drawn to more delicate jewellery and little subtle things. I used to consider necklaces like this appropriate only for daggy mums and pensioners. Maybe I'm just maturing quickly at the ripe old age of 16.
I froze to death taking these photos and afterwards, ran inside and put on my big, big vintage cardigan (I posted a photo on instagram: @hhhhhhhhhhhelen). Yet another example of me and my weather appropriate dressing - leather pants on a hot summer day and tiny shorts on the coldest day of the year so far.
I have been enjoying my school holidays immensely and have a few posts lined up, but for now, peace out, off to watch another episode of khloe and lamar xo

(1 - Bassike, 2 - Friend of Mine)

I have this inexplicable addiction to white. Ask anyone I know - I like my clothes white, my room white, even bread - white (wholegrain just doesn't cut it, you know?). But specifically, white dresses. Here are two more additions to my ever growing family - bassike's version of the perfect white silk slip dress which I have literally been hunting down for forever and a long sleeved I-don't-really-know-how-you-describe-it, but-I'm-semi-obsessed-with-it dress that has a lace up back. It was the last one. In my size. For 1/7th of the original price. Yeah.
