Bright Lights.

The bright lights of the Hamburger Dom
 shared with my sister.
Some of my favourite images from my life lived overseas,
still reminiscing a year later.

Visit the rest here.

Wandering Food Memories III.

On rainy days like these
there is nothing better than enjoying a meal 
with friends, cooked by friends.

Maastricht, The Netherlands, 2012.
Danish meatballs & potatoes 
cooked by a Dane in a Dutch kitchen

Liquorice all-sorts.

Like a box of maroon, burgundy and red liquorice all sorts.

Thrifting Like A Pro. Girlfriend Mag.

The mag: Girlfriend, June 2013.

The brief: Take a found second hand piece and work it into an outfit. 

The piece: crazy sequin, glitter fest of a top.

Because I love something with a bit of texture, and something that's a bit crazy. Like a little lost 80s disco ball I found this baby hiding amongst the rubble at the local Vinnies.

I present to you my first styling editorial (even if it is only small).

Styling: Me
Photography: Daryl Orillaza
Hair & make up: Kate Lee

Girlfriend magazine, June 2013

We'll show you how to make those vintage threads all yours.

On sale tomorrow. 
Get it while it's hot!

Girls Girls Girls 2

More girls, girls, girls & the wild west.
In a sun-bleached town on the outskirts of nowhere where boredom gives way to beauty it's all motels & dust,
Rodarte with bikers & desert plains,
Dual Kim & Ashley Smith,
Queens of the Road,
Cass Bird,
and explosions by the wayside Zabriskie Point style.

Ah bliss.

The Archive.

I love looking at things that appear as
collections, archives, catalogues, souvenirs, records.
Each little piece captures a little bit of an essence, a person, or a place,
that I immediately want to store away.
Cue Line Sander Johansen's SS13 'The Replica' collection, based within the thought of leftovers, scraps & remnants from a traveller's journey,

Girls Girls Girls.

It's all girls girls girls
& the wild west in my ulterior universe right now.

Check me out here.

RIP Daul Kim.

Jungle Feast.

I'm not normally one for animal print of any kind
but there must be something in the air
because I'm going a little wild for the idea of a faux 
leopard print trench, or leopard print booties.

Sundays on bed rest are
get well pressies from close friends
some are hand made of the eating kind
(hand made chai icecream & cheesecake)
and some are of the wearing kind
(beautiful denim shirts to continue with my denim obsession).
Thank you girls, 
maybe I should make a visit to hospital more often!

Ellery Wishings.

What to do when Ellery has a sample sale but you can't make it?
Trawl through their archives & make a mental wish list of all the pieces you dream of having in your wardrobe.
Here is but a few.
Red velvet two pieces,
pleat halter dresses,
black luxe crackling fabric,
& oversized wool coats.

Chamomile & berry dyed silk organza layers,

An investigation & exploration into unplanned, repetitive & intuitive drawing.

Scribbles of crayon
Brush strokes of white & yellow & magenta.

Saturdays on bed rest are
catching up with Russh, dad's weathered & worn levis,
trawling through research books,
all the while surrounded by beautiful get well blooms
(if only scent could travel through lap top screens).

Double D's.

Unknown sources

It did take me a while to be convinced,
but I'm fast falling for denim on denim on denim on denim,
patchworked or full, 
indigo or faded,
preferably soft & worn, 
full of tears, rips and fraying,
even chambray (definitely chambray).

A dose.

One of the best things about being ordered a dose of bed rest is being sent beautiful well wishes, especially those of the living floral kind. 

Thank you cousin & who ever else for the mysterious bunch.
