The Fleet Store

The Fleet Store QUT 2013

Once a year QUT's double degree Business and Fashion students run a fabulous little pop-up store stocking amazing pieces from local and student designers:

The Fleet Store!

I missed out on visiting the store last year but was stunned by the incredibly unique clothes and accessories I later saw in photos. I didn't want to miss a thing this year so I headed straight there on Monday morning when they opened to check it out.

This year's store is hosted in a creatively outfitted shipping container or 'POD' right in the middle of the creative industries precinct of QUT's Kelvin Grove campus. For such a small space, these kids have done great things with it! The racks were full of incredible pieces from simple and elegant basics to eye-catching printed statement items.

I would've bought out the whole store if I could, but I settled on this super cute gator print halter top by Brisbane label House of Cards, from their amazing Swamp Monsters collection (check it out!). 

If you're a Brisbane gal like myself, I strongly recommend popping in for a cheeky shop to support these talented young designers before the shop pops-down on August 30!

You can find The Fleet Store @ Paper Place, Musk Ave, QUT Kelvin Grove Campus.

Opening Hours:
10am - 6:30pm Monday to Wednesday
10am - 7:30pm Thursday to Friday
9am - 1pm Saturdays

gingham jeans, kenzo flatforms, blue ombre hair, kenzo wild platform sandals, mink pink check jeans, gingham pants, animal print flatforms, leopard print flatform sandals,

Today I thought I'd share one of my recent uni outfits with you. I've barely taken my Kenzo flatform sandals off since I got them for my birthday so they've become my go-to uni shoe - my uni(flat)form!

Often there's a tradeoff with gorgeous shoes - you have to deal with a little discomfort if you want to look fab in them all day long, but not with these babies! 
I can't get over how comfy they are!

Despite being a little out-there, they seem to go with just about everything too. 
I have a feeling they'll be my staple platform for a long time to come.

I'm also a little obsessed with anything gingham at the moment. These jeans have been the perfect alternative to my plain-jane (but much loved) black Cheap Mondays, and they're brilliant when you're in the mood for a little strategic print clashing!

My uni outfit: 
Wild platform sandals by Kenzo
Black lycra cropped roll-neck tank from Glassons
Black cropped knit jumper from Dotti (old season), and
MINKPINK gingham high-waisted jeans available from Market HQ.

Feline Feelin'

I've been on the look out for a leopard print piece for quite some time, but with a print that can so easily turn tacky, it's been no easy feat. 
I found this little gem of a sweater at Glassons. I love the large scale and spaced out style of the print - keeps it bold and graphic without looking cheap; plus it's super comfy and goes with everything! Too bad winter seems to be calling it quits a little early here in Brisbane (it's meant to be 30°C tomorrow!). Hopefully I can sneak in a few more wears if I bare some leg and go for shorts and skirts.

I decided to keep it in the feline family with my choice of socks today and went for these fierce tiger socks from Topshop! I'm obsessed with their never ending range of crazy socks and these are the perfect $4.50 solution to the Kenzo induced tiger trend. I love them!

Although I've been buying new shoes at a rate of about 1 pair per week lately (and I really should slow down), I couldn't resist these gorgeous blue Cheap Monday flatform oxfords. I snagged them for just $30 (!!!) at the Blonde Venus / The Outpost stockroom sale on Friday, and I loved them so much I went back and bought a second pair in black today! They're versatile, comfy, and perfect for the vertically challenged (like myself).
