I had a Forrest Gump moment on the train today. If life is like a box of chocolates it's also full of some pretty nasty ones. Like maybe meatloaf or tuna chocolate. Basically the worst flavours you could dream of, potentially inspired by the strange treats available in Harry Potter's wizarding world. Because there are… Continue reading life + chocolate.
Last night I was blown away - Highasakite were amazing, beyond expectations. The music was beautiful, the set hauntingly brilliant (with flickered lightbulbs and lamps), and the Norwegian accents wonderful. My ears came away happy, as did my heart, developing not one, but two more girl crushes. This is becoming a long list, but a… Continue reading musings :: highasakite.
This menswear fashion week the street style has been all about the tailored coat or jacket, adding in a touch of colour via beanies, socks and scarves (also my favourite accessories). The shows have been brilliant (if not a little scandalous, thanks to Rick Owens). One of my favourites at the moment is the recent… Continue reading manspiration :: burberry prorsum.
Watching True Detective has made me feel quite wary of dream catchers and basically anything made out of a mixture of twigs and twine. (But do watch it, we are completely addicted. Matthew McConaughey is now well and truly the king of all actors). Yet these materials are some of my favourites, always on hand… Continue reading luu studios.
Some weeks are just plain strange, Filled with really good things, seriously bad things, happy moments, and stressful times. It gets to a point where you have no idea how to actually feel - it all gets meshed into one big confusing mess. And unfortunately the world doesn't stop for you. There's no time to… Continue reading perthite for a day.
Am I the only person in Sydney, or anywhere really, who is over the brioche phase? I love my chur burger but I don't love my bun. It's like eating a cake with your meat - meat cake, even less natural than a meat loaf. Bring back the sourdough and grainy loaves. I suppose my… Continue reading one for the men.
Last week I read an article about a brand that was previously unknown to me - A Détacher. I was obviously stuck under a rock for years. There are a few reasons why I'm so glad I decided to click on the link and follow through. Firstly, the super cool designer, Mona Kowalska, is a trend-setting… Continue reading a détacher.
We all know Oscar de la Renta was an absolute genius and lover of women - a man who knew us better than we knew ourselves. It truly shows when a collection released 8 years ago contains pieces I would quite happily show off right now. I would feel like a little French princess -… Continue reading reliving :: oscar de la renta.
(Sorry Amelia Diamond). In case you haven't noticed already, I have a very limited vocabulary. There are only so many times you can say 'amazing', 'incredible', or 'seriously' in the one post. Often I find myself wishing I had an inner dictionary, a knowledge of the words, like Tim - the collector of big words.… Continue reading all the words.
Initially this was going to be all about spaghetti straps, but then I realised, it's not the strap, it's the slip that is so iconic. Not necessarily in a good way. Everything old is new again - one man's trash in another's treasure. All the cool kids in the 90's, aka model groupies / copycats, tossed out… Continue reading anatomy of :: the slip.
