LABEL CRUSH | Q&A FINDERS KEEPERS

If you regularly visit my blog you will be aware about my unhealthy obsession with the playful, chic and unique label findersKEEPERS  see here. The label releases 12 collections per year so they remain highly competitive and trend focussed, they look to the catwalk and inspiration from the streets around the world to create a bang...

GOOT HEAVEN

I was invited by the ultra cool peeps at JASU for an exclusive preview of their new Winter arrivals. Including one of my favourite Australian designers Josh Goot..Need I say more?! His minimalist aesthetic along with clean,crisp lines tick every box for me. This black marble A Line pencil skirt, with it's flame feature is right up my...

It features classic items that could only ever come from...

GREEN HAZE

I gravitate towards the colour green, particularly when it's a luscious shade of emerald. The top with its gorgeous high neckline, cuffed shoulders and cropped waistline can be worn from day to night. The silk printed pants with its mix of forest and sea green (available here) offer the perfect compliment to this top but you...


TOPSHOP X KATE BOSWORTH

Kate Bosworth is one of my style icons, so it's fabulous news that TOPSHOP has launched a collection inspired by Kate's unique boho-style. The 16-piece capsule collection is designed to be the perfect festival wardrobe including dresses, denim and leather shorts and waistcoats. "I've always had a love of fashion," said actress and style icon...

BIRTHDAY DRESS

It was my birthday on Saturday, I had a great night out with my friends at the amazing Chin Chins, very New York-esque. It got me excited for my trip to NY in 4 weeks (yes I'm counting down every day). I will be doing a bunch of posts from that great city, so...


Q&A- DANIELLE FROM KOOKAI

Kookai helped me get through my wardrobe dilemmas in my late teens, I turned to the label almost every week to find a new outfit to all those oh-so important parties (back then I had the confidence to pull off those bodycon skirts). I have grown up with this iconic Australian brand. I have to...

FINDERS KEEPERS THE LABEL

Finders Keepers..I could not think of a better name for this brand as I want to keep this little gem all to myself! I first became aware of the label a few years ago but this collection is by far my favourite! The new collection 'A Field Of Dreams' left me in tingles after I...


LIFEWITHBIRD WAREHOUSE SALE EDIT

Normally its my trusty coffee that sparks my senses in the morning but this morning I heard that one of my favourite labels LIFEwithBIRD was having a 90% off designer sale in Melbourne,definitely beats that coffee! I had a sneak preview and there are so many great pieces on-sale! I have put together my top...

LUXE TO LESS -BALENCIAGA

These rings from Nicholas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga are golden tube bliss and leaving me drooling. Even though the talented Ghesquiere has now left his prestigious home at Balenciaga, recently stating  'I was being sucked dry' (read more here) doesn't mean we love his designs any less. These have sold out worldwide (realistically I couldn't justify...


CAMOUFLAGE

I was almost blending into the graffiti brick wall in these printed pants. I got these just over a month ago and I haven't been able to take them off. I initially looked at them and thought I wouldn't get much wear in them because the print is quite fierce! I was surprised they...

LIFEWITHBIRD + VITA FEDE

Would you say something that is made in Italy is better quality? When I hear a product is my ears tend to spark up, this could be due to my heritage and the fact that mum has drilled this into my head. The statement isn't always true but the talented duo Bridget and Nick...


NEW AJE.

I'm a Melbourne girl so I could be biased but I think this city has the best selection of designers by a mile! One thing that does let us Melbournians down is that we aren't blessed with a glamorous AJE boutique. Damn you Sydney! (the Aje boutique is located in Potts Point) If you haven't...

CHRISTOPHER ESBER EXCLUSIVE SS 13/14

Now this designer exclusive got me excited!! I'm sure your aware (from my many instagram updates) last week I attended Mercedes Fashion Week. I was overwhelmed by all the breathtaking collections but it's bitter sweet as now we have to wait for what feels like a lifetime for most of the pieces to be...


MBFWA | HARYONO SETIADI SS 2013/14

Words like architectural, super tailoring, digital print, innovative fabrication, modern silhouettes and luxe athletica all work to describe Haryono Setiadi's Spring Summer 14 collection named 'Visceral’ This Sydney label grabbed my attention early last year, with its ultra structured pieces. It recently re branded in February as it was previously called 'An Ode to No One' (just...

MBFWA | AJE SS 2014

The highly anticipated show of the week, AJE!! Walking into the runway we were transported with a beautiful floral installation in colours of red, plum, blush and touches of white. Very fitting as the collection is named 'The Garden Of Yesterday'. As the first model stormed out on the catwalk so did the smoke, it...

My first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week consisted of shows by some of the best Australian designers from established names such as Camilla & Marc, Aurelio Costarella and Bec & Bridge to talented newcomer by johnny.

THE PENCIL

The colour jade has always grabbed my attention, so I was instantly drawn to this nylon ribbed pencil skirt. I then realised it was one of my fav New York brands Opening Ceromony. The label launched in 2002 and Green With Envy started stocking it last year which I was very excited about, previously I had...



ROLLED UP

One thing I don't mind spending my money on are good quality handbags! I know they can be quite pricey, but if you go for a classic style they last for season after season. I'm obsessed with this simple new clutch, with its modern rolled up twist. Now if you don't want to splurge on...

Q & A- RINGUET

So as promised here is my chat with the super talented print master Benjamin Ringuet from the label RINGUET. I was lucky enough to wear one of his pieces to fashion week last week, nothing better than wearing a strong print with plain basics. I was interested in learning more about what inspires him to design...


RUNWAY 5- HARPER’S BAZAAR

I'm embracing all the pencil skirts I have seen in-stores at the moment,so I thought I would give one a whirl last night. I first came across Brisbane label Ringuet through online boutique Alterior Motif a year ago. The label is young but already making a huge stamp. Look out for my interview with Benjamin next week...

WESTFIELD AW13 CAMPAIGN- CANDICE LAKE

When I received the email presenting me with the opportunity to be involved in Westfield Autumn/Winter 13 campaign shot by Candice Lake- I was absolutely floored! Surely it must be another Candice Lake- not the renowned International Model, turned amazing photographer and blogger. I jumped at the opportunity. I was nervous walking up to the...

The festival officially kicked off on Wednesday night with the first runway show by vogue.com.au. It was pretty phenom! With a list of Creme de la Creme designers showcasing their current A/W collections. Josh Goot, Toni Maticevski, Scanlan & Theodore and Willow just to name a few. I noticed strong trends. Mocochrome was still out...


LEOPARD

Attending the Highpoint launch yesterday, I thought I might as well rock some Monochromes! I really love my blacks but I have been trying to introduce some more colour, I play it safe too often. Obviously today I went with the safe option! Nothing better than a crisp white shirt- number 1 staple item...


ANJA RUBIK X GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI

This is a match made in heaven! One of my favourite supermodel's Anja Rubik has teamed with amazing high-end Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti for this latest model-slash-designer collab.

MOSSMAN SHAPE SHIFTER

I was super excited when I visited Mossman headquarters last week to have a closer look at their much anticipated A/W collection- ShapeShifter!

MYER A/W 13 COLLECTION LAUNCH

I love this time of year as Autumn/Winter fashion has arrived! The Myer 2013 Collection Launch was held last night at the iconic Mural hall in Myer Melbourne. The Mural hall was beautifully transformed with ceiling high portrait style images taken from Myer's Autumn/Winter campaign 'The Edit'. In the past I have come straight from...

Ohh Manning!!

Firstly I’m wearing my favourite look of the collection! (big call-but I made it) The ‘Athenes Moment’ bomber jacket and short. If you look closely you can see that amazing felt appliqué embroidery I mentioned in my earlier post, every piece is individually hand cut and stitched together in Australia! I’m not usually a pattern kind of...
