Clikity - Clack - CLOGS!

I said damnnnn girl where'd you get those clogs, those clogs - where'd you pull them from?

hahhaahhaha okay but seriously - clogs - aloha they are so totally in! Mind the excited, ridiculous lingo I've just had way to much chocolate and can't control myself! But honestly if theres a pair of shoes you can't go wrong with its the big trend for this season, CLOGS! I'm going to show you a few photos. I'll jumble them up and amongst them will be pairs worth $2000 right down to a mere $50 and if you ask me they all look pretty darn similar and amazing! It's all about shopping around and here at Flying South we love to find 'top in season' items to match with our vintage goodies!



Extra, Extra - Read all about us!

A few weeks ago I got a phone call asking me about this blog! To begin with I was shocked and then came the excitement...
For most of you savvy bloggers out there, I'm sure many of you have been made aware about the amazing opportunity Westfield Shopping Australia have put out to the public and if you haven't...keep your eyes peeled and continue reading!

We were asked to be about a press release and keep our lips tight for a week before the competition was announced to the public. As I am not in Adelaide, Monique got the opportunity to take party in a photo shoot for the Adelaide Sunday Mail. Basically westfield are on the hunt for someone like us and you to be their westfield fashion blogger. You can Shop and Tell and be paid $100 000 to do so. It's such a great opportunity for everyone to be a part of and really have the chance to turn our/your hobby into a career. We are thankful to have been apart of the press release and surely enough we definitely entered! If you want to know more about the competition have a look on their website: http://westfield.com.au/aucentres/westfieldinsider/

Fresh from the US

Honey to the bee this is Liv-iii!
Okay so I'm not the best at rhyming but I am going crazy right about now! Check it out now, I've been vintage shopping not just in thrift stores but online through all different websites and I came across this amazing blazer straight from the US. I've been finding goodies like this a lot lately but this would have to be in my top five finds. This particular blazer I found a month or so ago but now that I've already worn it out and received endless complements I'm thinking, 'should I put it in the store?' and let it receive every ounce of attention it deserves? I don't know, I don't know - I don't know *stamps feet*....I asked my mother dearest what she thought and she begged me to put it in the store...so she could buy it? hahahahaha so maybe I will put in the store and ya'll will just have to beat my mother to buying it! Have a look :) Also this is before I went lighter with my hair? I'm thinking after such a long process of getting it lighter, I'll go back to this hehe! Olivia xx

What we're lookin' for...

11:11pm Make a wish. So how many of you see that and do the same as us and what do you wish for? ZIP IT, if you tell us it won't come true. The wishes we can make come alive are those wishes/desires you have to find amazing one off vintage pieces that set you apart from the scene and have every girl in the powder room asking you all sorts of questions like; Where is that bodice from? How much did you pay? 15 DOLLARS!!?? Cheese + Whiskers, we want in on flying south! Okay so maybe thats not the general convo happenin' in the powder room but you get the jist. We'l' have you looking so fly, offspring will be singing bout' you in no time!

What are we on the hunt for? PRINTS. They are everywhere we look but we are yet to find the perfect pairs. We see them retailing in every awesome store from cotton on, sportsgirl, maurie and eve, everywhere online and even on the stars! But before you go and snap yourself up a $200 pair from Maurie and Eve, I say HALT! Because Monique is flying from Adelaide to Melbourne *YAYAYAY* and the two of us are going on a never ending hunt to bring you vintage printed pants. I'm feeling tribal, leopard, zebra, maybe some tasteful floral and even polka dotted goodness. What else should we look for whilst we're on our thrifting mission!?

WIN! WIN! WIN!

Mr and Miss' Lover, Lovers! We get that sometimes these *suggest to win* comps get a bit tiresome and often others 'over do it'. Well we're new and for a while we've relied on word of mouth and that has gotten us so much love but we know that there are so many others out there that could join in on the love but its a matter of them finding us and finding out what we are about. In this competition all we ask is you suggest 10 friends each, 100 would be good a thousand would be amazing but anything helps :) All you have to do is suggest people, write on our facebook wall saying how many and we will enter you into the random draw to win the double fingered cross ring pictured below(identical to the Forever 21 cross ring that sold out)! You can even just share one of our pictures on your blog with out link or talk about us on your blog and we will consider that an entry. Sisters are doing it for themselves

New items on the block(blog)

Alo, Aloha!
We have listed these items on facebook already and fortunately before even having the chance to release them to the blogosphere a few of the items have been snapped up already. This range isn't that big but it's more of 1.1 sneak peak of what is too come. Keep your eyes peeled to the next post to find out why and how to see more of the many goodies we have in store...
Repeat after us: Com-pe-tit-ion (details coming soon)

A little late..

We've been a tad slack here in the Flying South office. Rather than blogging about our current range we've been busy snapping up finds for the next. We've sold a lot from the range I'm about to picture here but if there is anything you fancy just let us know and we'll give you the details on size/price and avaliability. If the items have already been snapped up then we will try and source your something similar. Our first range for us was 'Colour me Winter'. Whilst winter is very cold and a lot of people tend to wear basic colours such as black, grey and brown we sourced coats, blazers and shirts that will keep your warm and also brighten up your day. Our favourite pieces from this range was our Fur Jacket, Red leather Jacket and also the denim high waisted shorts! Keep the love coming, Flying South xx
