I recently did an interview for the online fashion website 2threads.com where i answered questions like what inspires my outfit choices and where are my favourite places to eat- because lets face it I'm the biggest foodie and apparently i'm not the only person who thinks so! 

How did you come about starting a blog?
I don’t think it was something I really planned at first. I’ve been blog stalking for as long as I can remember, collecting endless images that inspired me whether it be food, fashion or interior. And that’s how I started my tumblr (danichlek.tumblr.com) but from then on I began posting photos of myself and what I’d get up to on the weekend whether it be a market that was on that day or if I was trying out a new cafè and of course images of me and my outfits. I surprisingly had a really big response from my tumblr followers, which was awesome! But then I realised I wanted to keep my tumblr purely for inspiration and have a separate blog for my outfit and lifestyle posts and that’s how Alice In Wanderlust was born.
Can you name some of your favourite Sydney stores to shop at?
My favorite shop in Sydney would have to be Tuchuzy- just because the buyers that work for the boutique have a very good eye and source such amazing clothing! Same with For Artists Only- a small boutique in Rose bay but again Kristie (The owner/buyer) has such an amazing eye!
I hardly ever shop in shopping centers or in the city because I find that everything there is all the same and repetitive so I stay clear because as much as I love fashion always following trends is so boring. I’m also a big fan of American Apparel- they have really good basics and the cuts are always a perfect fit
Do you think that blogging has given you more opportunities.
Definitely! Blogging is great for networking and has been such an amazing platform for me, especially because I want to work within the fashion industry. Through blogging i have made relationships with PR companies, designers, stylists and I’ve met so many amazing and inspiring people. Also I met some of my best friends through blogging.




These four beautiful items of clothing are the top things on my wish list right now. As the weather is starting to warm up I'm finding myself obsessing over these lovely undergarments that work well as tops as well (a high waisted jean/skirt's best friend)
Don't get me wrong these bralettes under a slightly unbuttoned denim shirt will always be a timeless way to wear them, and i'm not forgetting that.
I'm also loving platforms- i am a shortie so these awesome shoes are perfect for some extra height and in my opinion make the your outfit (it's all about the shoes)

Is anybody else getting excited about spring? On monday we had a 25 degree winter day and it made me nostalgic for the warmer weather. Not long to go!



I've been really taking advantage of my very rare days off recently and i continue to do so and explore places i haven't been before- and also give you guys interesting content other than just posting photos of my outfits (which i will still be doing :)) So on wednesday i decided to go and explore Newtown, because i haven't been there since nam and i wanted to see if the vintage shopping there is better than Surry Hills- personally i prefer Surry Hills. My friend and i stumbled across Sadhana Kitchen which is an all organic raw vegan cafè and they even do yoga retreats there! Super cute and different. After our yummy and satisfying feed we walked along king street and checked out the shops. Newtown really reminds me of Melbourne, which i love because i feel like I'm in another city when i visit there. Outfit posts coming soon! but for the meantime- I am wearing:
American Apparel top, Vintage skirt & Leather jacket 
I've also rekindled my love for american apparel every time i go in there i easily spend 100 dollars, and the fact that they are opening up another level for a 'discount basement' is getting me really excited!



You could say that Surry Hills is my home, my boyfriend lives on Crown Street so i am in the area every day. Except i realised recently that i haven't been taking advantage of the awesome privilege of being within 5 minutes walking distance of all the amazing vintage & opp shops and the lovely cafès. I love discovering new places to have coffee and to eat along with rummaging through racks of vintage clothes- so on saturday i decided to make it a day of eating, discovering & shopping. My new favourite café is called Me & Art (62 Mary Street, Surry Hills) It is a vegan café & Japanese art gallery tucked away in a beautiful terrace. They make amazing coffees and if you go there make sure you try the coconut chai lattes- they are to die for. 
I also stopped by the Winery markets that are held on the 3rd saturday of every month. If you're in the area than its definitely worth checking out, they are quite small but you might be able to pick up some cheap vintage designer goodies and then continue through all the opp shops on crown street- i scored a 100% recycled leather jacket for $85!

I am wearing- American Apparel cropped long sleeve top, Vintage leather jacket, Vintage Levis denim skirt (from Glebe Markets), American Apparel socks & boots i've had for years i dont even remember where i bought them from!



Evil Twin 'Crystal Method' woven tee, Zara skort, Acne leather pouch
I've been lusting over this Acne wallet for longer than i can remember telling myself that one day i'll be the proud owner of this small leather pouch- to my luck i scored this baby half price at the Tuchuzy sale and i got in lucky last! I'm meant to be saving and yet i'm spending more than usual- i guess I'm just having shopping withdrawals? 
For you guys who saw my post about Evil Twin's new campaign 'No Guts No Glory' you would have already known that i am in love with the new 'punk rock meets 90s sporty luxe' collection! I was also lucky enough to score this amazing printed woven tee courtesy of The Rumour Mill PR- its safe to say that i am hooked on the print and the box shaped silhouette. Not to mention how it goes from short at the front to longer at the back- this little number is goes with everything and makes you stand out.

3.1 Phillip Lim

Helmut Lang



Alexander Wang

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Rag & Bone

Looking through all the recent 2014 Resort collections on Style.com my favourite designers never cease to disappoint. Here i've narrowed down my favourite looks from their collections (it was so hard to pick favourites.) Phillip Lim believes that no one has time to travel anymore and therefore has created a collection for the modern women describing it as "one to wear as you play while you work, or work while you play." This is one of my favourite collections as it is so clean and crisp with bright hues and  leathers, keeping it minimalistic. Helmut Lang did their resort collection in a sophisticated and street style way, its not your usual Resort collection that is vacation ready and bursting in tropical colours. Their collection was heavy in leather, snakeskin and monochrome. (three of my favourites so i'm definitely not complaining.) Chloè focused most of her collection on the pants. The trousers came in a few different variations for the collection- high waisted, mens suit style, cropped, and pleated. I love the 'girl dressing like boy' motif that many designers have taken on board this year. I have a soft spot for coats and box-shaped tops that Chloè nailed so well. Ellery's Resort collection was another favourite- Feminine silhouettes and the perfect amount of skin baring. Wang focussed on creating the perfect basics- low slung baggy leather pants (drool) and asymmetrical skirts along with the perfect knit- what else do you really need? Marc by Marc Jacobs is again not so much your typical tropical getaway Resort collection. Its described as a 'Buy now, wear now' line and focuses on 'looking cosy' whilst still looking smart - offering faux furs and houndstooth patterns. And finally Rag & Bone- another favourite refreshing (chic) collection that focuses on simplicity. Again I'm drooling on the coats.
