My favourite street in the world. It’s so nice when you finally realise that you feel at home.
Hands up if you like a good bookstore! They are rare little gems, but finding my favourite local bookstore made me finally feel at home when I moved to a new city. Inside you can escape to wherever you like in the world, and inhabit the lives of whoever you please. For me, Ariel Books in Paddington in one of my most loved places in Sydney. I’ve been walking over on weekends for a couple...
I act this way because that’s the way I feel like acting. If people like it,...– Edie Sedgwick
Like Ms Bradshaw trading a diamond engagement ring, I too believe a walk in wardrobe is my ultimate life goal. Neat little rows chronicling all of my favourite fashion moments would complete me. When I stumbled accross ‘The Coveted’ I literally let our a girlie squeal. As writers Erin Kleinberg and Stephanie Mark put it, “The Coveted takes you inside the closets of...
This collection is understated perfection. I love that the A.P.C. aesthetic is completely wearable yet still very chic. - A.P.C. F/W 2011 collection

Love these shots and love this girl. Anyone who can balance playing a fundamentalist prairie dress wearing polygamist, with being an indie-sweetheart, a successful colaboration designer with Opening Ceremony and an iconic model is doing pretty well in my books. - images from Chloe Sevigny interview by LATimes.com
This makes me so excited!! The VIP Art Fair is hours away from opening. As their website puts it, the event “is the first art fair to mobilize the collective force of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries with the unlimited reach of the Internet.” Featuring almost 9,000 unique artworks, across the areas of painting, multimedia, video, installation, photography and drawing...
of course, mother darling.
Whether you’ve seen the 1975 documentary ‘Grey Gardens’, or the recent fictional version starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange, the lives of this charismatic yet delightfully unhinged mother-daugther duo, big and little Edie Bouvier Beale, are completely charming as far as I’m concerned. Left to languish in their decaying East Hamptons mansion, their story of...

‘Little Things’ is an adorable little tumblr blog that chronicles the simple pleasures in life. As the author puts it, it is “a list of things I have come to appreciate”… Made my day discovering this gem! - All images from http://just-littlethings.tumblr.com/

“I was a really lousy artist as a kid. Too abstract expressionist, or I’d draw a ram’s head, really messy. I’d never win painting contests. I remember losing to a guy who did a perfect spiderman.” - Jean Michel Basquiat
want. need. love.
Despite that it’s the middle of Summer here in Sydney, and positively sweltering, I need this parka. Fur trim and all! Loving Michelle’s style at the moment. Makes me want to pack my bags and head over to NYC. I could care less about the blizzard if it means I can wear gear like this! - Images from www.justjared.com

I’m still a little puzzled as to exactly how I feel about this film, but what I will say is I love how willing the Mulleavy sisters are to take on a challenge. Not content to rest on their laurels, these phenomenal ladies have been taking on all kinds of side projects over the past year, including of course the costuming for Black Swan. Click on the title to view their latest film by Todd...

In 2010 I had the pleasure of seeing Diego Luna’s directorial debut, Abel, at the Hola Mexico film festival. Honestly, you need to go see this. The story centres around a young boy named Abel, who is afflicted with a personality disorder. The product of a broken home, this beautiful little dreamer, coaxed by his adoring mother, leaves hospital to return to his family. When he arrives, he...
como te extraño
A few years ago, I began an unexpected love affair with México. In the subsequent years I’ve collected an apartment full of odd souvenirs, more woven handicrafts than you can imagine and a trunk load of sunburned, mariachi filled memories. I can’t help but miss something about the place. It’s definitely got to do with all of the people who wholeheartedly welcomed me into their...
I’ve never really been into Angelina. I don’t know what it is…I guess I’m just a little unnerved by that much pout on one girl. But when I stumbled across these vintage shots, I have to admit, my distain waned somewhat. Would love to see her back in something gritty, the same calibre as ‘Girl, Interrupted’. - Images from www.neoanthema.com,...
