On Crown

Yesterday, Wailam and I went for a spot of eating and shopping in Surry Hills. We generally do these things in other areas so it's not our primary place of hanging out, but we thought we might change it up and explore this corner of Sydney a little more.


Pizza margherita is always the right choice. This was the nicest pizza I've had in a while, actually, it had a lovely crispy base. This was Mad Pizza on the end of Crown St, near Oxford St, and it lured us in with their lunch deal.


I have lots of difficulty when eating with lipstick on. Russian Red has amazing staying power, but I feel really self conscious about my lips anyway, so I contort them unnaturally and end up with lipstick on my nose.


For dessert - chocolate mousse with peanut butter gelato and caramel. Heck yes.


Surry Hills seems like the place to be for vintage shopping. I'm not sure about these vintage stores, because everything's quite expensive - I suppose you pay a premium for having all this nice stuff already found for you, rather than digging for hours in charity shops.


I didn't buy anything, but I had lots and lots of trouble walking away from a jacket which fit me perfectly. I keep thinking about it, so I might pop back sometime... though it might not be there.


Afterwards, we did a lot of walking around and checked out cool little shops. Then it started raining on us. Gosh, weather.

  
My hoarder self was vindicated after I dug these jeans out of the back of my closet... they were relegated a couple of years ago because they'd become too faded for my taste, but I wanted lighter wash jeans with the outfit (note the faded rectangles on the pockets - where I used to keep my phone!). The jumper and coat are my mum's (half the things I wear were scrounged from my mother's wardrobe - I should do a post), shirt is Zara, boots are Doc Martens.

I realise food has featured heavily in my last couple of posts... I'm not sorry!

// I almost forgot! Americans, hope you had a good 4th of July... guess what? I am probably going to inflict my presence on your country in January next year. I have relatives in the States and I'm long overdue for a visit. It's early days yet, so nothing's definite, but I'm already pretty excited!

  12. Fooooood. That dessert looks insanely delicious. Have you ever been to the Dip @ Goodgod in the city? They have this pb&j sandwich dessert that's like peanut butter ice cream, raspberry sauce on brioche it's amaaazing.

    I love that jumper, I'm jealous of your mum's style.

    & you're so lucky you have people to visit in the Americas, New York??!. I have a couple friends there but they're all poor so they probably wouldn't have space for me!

    1. I haven't heard of this place before but I googled and the stuff they have sounds amazing, I've gotta try it out sometime.

      I've only got relatives in Ohio and North Carolina (of all places) but I'm definitely not leaving that country without seeing NYC!

  13. Oh, oh, oh!! I genuinely adore this outfit, I love the shirt+jumper combination, they're just the right combination. And it seems you had a great afternoon. Sydney through your lens keeps looking better and better each time.

    And whoooo! The States, you lucky! Where does your family live? SO NICE, I love looking forward to those future plans!! :D

    1. I've got family in Ohio and North Carolina, but I'll probably do some travelling on my own and see big cities like LA and NYC, and maybe a bit of Canada? Thanks Louise!

  19. The pictures you've taken of Surry Hills motivates me to go to the place! I've been putting it off for quite a while now simply because I'm too lazy to walk around. I'm definitely doing it before semester two starts! The food looks tasty!

  20. I'm just catching up on your delicious food posts because I've been lagging in comments recently :(. You make everything look so yummy, this is why I love your blog so much! ^_^ Your outfit is just perfection! I've probably said this numerous times before but red lipstick looks soooo good on you.

    Hope you're well! :)

  22. Your food always make me drool, I enjoy seeing what you've been eating - sounds a tad weird that does but you get my drift :P

    Oh I'm the same, I cut my fringe so I'm always concious of her mentioning it, she never does but can be a tad awkward - especially conversation as I'm rather shy too.

    Really like your jeans paired with the docs, a classic look!
