In bloom...









I'm not sure if it's just me, but for the last couple of months I have been drawn to all things floral.  For those of you who know me however, I am more of a black on grey on black girl...so jumping into any sort of print or colour parade feels somewhat unnatural.  In saying that though, pretty floral prints have been cropping up everywhere from Dolce and Gabbana to ASOS and I think it's time we all embrace the power of the flower before winter rears its' ugly head and we begin to bury ourselves in knitwear!

Kate for W...











Bewitching, beguiling Kate.  No other model has ever had quite the same appeal as Miss Moss and in my opinion her editorials, like her, only seem to get better and more exciting with age.  Photographed here by Steven Klein for W Magazine, 38 year old Moss proves why she is just as in demand as ever.  Whether you like good Kate or bad Kate...each frame is absolutely breathtaking x

Milano...

Fendi

Emilio Pucci


Dolce & Gabbana

Iceberg


Just Cavalli



Prada


What I particularly love about Milan fashion week is that it's like the Godfather of the fashion circuit.  All the big names show in Milan and they seem to bring together all my favourite elements from each city...the crisp minimalism of New York, the cool bright prints of London, a smooth sense of Parisienne chic and with Italy, we can always expect leopard and lace!  Milan is the ultimate fashion week experience and the collections exhibit all the theatrics one would expect from the Italians.  However while each show is a performance in itself, amongst all the embellishment there are certainly key pieces within each collection which are deliciously wearable x

I want to be this girl...

Monday mornings are tough for everyone...especially when it's raining.  For me, it was certainly a struggle to drag myself out into the torrential downpour (even if I did score a lovely ride to the train station)!  Sitting inside on my lunch break today, this image brought a smile to my face...what I wouldn't give to be this girl right now!  Just a little bit of inspiration for those who are suffering from the Monday morning blues x

Sweet Summer...


I must say that this weekends temperatures have been some of the hottest I've experienced since I moved to Melbourne last March...and while the somewhat suffocating heat can prove to be a challenge at bedtime, during daylight hours, it brings out the best of summer!  Living less than five minutes from the beach certainly has its perks as temperatures soar...countless swims, creamy vanilla soft-serve, BBQ's and beer, all adding up to the most memorable of summer days x

Front Row...

While another fashion week has flown by and Milan is already running full steam ahead...I just wanted to share some of my favourite front row looks from London Fashion Week from my favourite front row ladies!  If I had a golden ticket to the shows, these are definitely the girls I'd be drawing my inspiration from.  Stunning!

This week has flown by and I feel like I have been up to my eyeballs in extra-curricular activities...so when I sat down today to review my favourites from London fashion week, I was met with a burst of colour, prints and pastels!  First up, Mary Kantrantzou...I have only recently discovered her as a designer and quickly she is becoming a firm favourite.  What's even more exciting is that she has just recently collaborated with Topshop and in less than a week the collection is released in Australian stores!  Cannot wait x

One year on from the February 22 earthquake and it still feels so raw.  The Christchurch quake that killed 185 people has changed the face of the city that I call home forever and now that we look back and remember that fateful day, I can honestly say that I still have not dealt with the terror.


I took this photograph the morning after the quake and it remains an eerie reminder of the city that crumbled in seconds.  In the words of my dad...remember, if you're reading this, you're one of the lucky ones x

I have been excited about this collaboration for a while now and have been dying to see the full collection!  Released in the UK on the 8 March, I can guarantee there will be people lining up for days to get their hands on the gorgeous pieces.  My pick, the wooden and leather slingbacks...yum x
