My apartment is in bloom!
Today something magical happened… My newest handbag addition, the Alexander Wang Marti convertible backpack, arrived and it is just as delicious as I imagined. Firstly the leather is smooshy and delectable, with subtle suede accents and industrial looking zippers which give in the true Wang feel. Its also got pockets galore for all of my junk. I justified this purchase as a...

Currently in the process of planning my summer holidays. Yes, I know I’m getting a little ahead of myself considering it’s only just starting to get cold here, but I always want what I can’t have apparently. I’m dreaming of white beaches, azure waters, the smell of sunscreen and No. 8 cocktails at North Bondi Italian. Add some crazy Mexicans to the mix and fingers...
the big o.
As Oprah mayhen rolls into town, my love for the queen of daytime tv has admitedly been rekindled. That being said, “the farewell season” seems to be taking it a little far. I mean, I thought finale meant it was the last one, but here goes Lady O redifining even that with a 3 episode finale spectacular. You go girl! There’s a great review of the shows up on Time.com at the...

paris is burning.
The Art Gallery of NSW is holding screenings of some great vintage cinema in conjunction with The Archibald Prize exhibition, which is also very much worth a visit. I managed to catch ”Paris is Burning” this weekend. A documentary by Jennie Livingstone, it’s an interesting journey into the lives of 80s black and hispanic drag queens and transvestites, who compete in a...
I thoroughly enjoy some Sunday baking. Today it was scones and these thin shortbreads with rose icing. Delectable! Working in front of a computer day in day out, it’s easy to forget how satisfying it is making something with your hands. And it’s even nicer watching someone go back for seconds…
Wow. This picture is sublime perfection. Imagine what could happen to you on that horizon… Image from Shiny Plastic Hag.
In true Lover style, Susien and Nic celebrated their 10th Anniversary with french lace, sublime taloring and leather accents. That red lace dress is most definitely going to become a collector’s item. Image from The Look Book.

I love a good independent fashion mag. On a trip to Mexico I came across “Baby Baby Baby”, a little gem of backyard photography, scrapbook art and experimental styling all bound up in matt paged goodness. So if you spy a copy in your travels, I recommend you snap it up. Check out the online version here.
I was a little bit naughty today and accidentally came home with these gorgeous new prism babies… You like?!
RAFW fever has been rife this week in Sydney, with editors, buyers and bloggers alike all clambering for the golden ticket - a front row seat. Generally this kind of irrational madness bores me to tears, however this year there have been a few genuinely unique and beautiful shows that have inspired me and renewed my interest in Australian fashion. The stand out for me has been Karla Spetic. Just...
I randomly came across this ad from the “Where’s your Moustache” campaign from the 90s. I honestly loved this quirky idea for a campaign and this image is just too adorable… I’m off to get my daily fix now! Image from Sassisamblog.
Hands up who is loving the current crop of pink fashion delights? It’s a tricky thing wearing pink. Personally I’m not that partial to the blush tones that are about…just not the right colour for my skin tone. To me, the perfect posy shade is a subdued rose hue. Simply delectable! Don’t get me wrong…I doubt I’ll be rocking a complete pastel...
