Nothing's more beautiful than a classic.

Nothing like a little montage to feed the soul. Even though conditions are icy at present, there is definitely an anticipatory murmur of excitement for those coming spring and summer months with the announcement of the Parklife lineup in Australia and the Coachella 2012 lineup just around the corner . For all you Woodstock kids and festival heads here is a little summer lovin' to warm up the cold nights, courtesy of Ray-Ban.

Velour, architecture and killer platform to boot. LUST

Wilde indeed. And my shoe obsession grows by the day. Thank you Jeffrey Campbell, my bank account dwindles down yet again.

Architectural dreams.

Straight from the shiny runways to your very own (and very sore) feet.
New lines and daring platforms reign supreme in some of the latest and greatest shoe collections this Autumn/Winter. Taking a little inspiration from Balencia, you can own your very own piece of wearable art for a fraction of the cost.

Ah it's that time of the year again. A time in which I lust over piece after piece making it's way down superbly crafted runways and sending a shiver of excitement and longing up my spine. Yes fashion week is officially upon us and if what we have seen three days in is any indication of what to come, then ladies, time to increase the limits on your credit cards. Im so excited to see bold, bright and feminine colours reigning supreme. Electric blues, vibrant mustards and fuchsia pinks some of the key colours cropping up in many collections.


Each designer showcased so far has brought a distinct style of their own, with hair and make-up and interior artistry to match. It's hard to pick a favourite from the vast array of breath taking collections. Every designer seems to have upped the anti from last year, bringing Australian fashion up to a whole new level of elegance. Day one saw personal favourite Bec and Bridge burst with crisp whites, soft lilacs and intricate florals with yellow and blue hues. Zimmerman duo never to be surpassed, their pieces oozed feminine class; a mix of flowing maxis and tailored pants in irresistibly soft pastels. The biggest colour pop of them all (so far) Camilla and Marc, always impressive saw those brights colours set in simple cuts and designs set against intricately patterned pieces. Shakuhachi (always personal favourite) brought 70's glamour alive in bright maxis and shimmery silk fabrics and mini's in pastels and geometric designs.

Other highlights include Bianca Spender, Kirrily Johnston, Kate Sylvester, well, basically everyone. I'll say it again, i've never been so impressed than I am this year.
