With Love, Eclektica.

Introducing, my new CC Skye 'Mini Spike Love' bracelet.

You can find it at Eclektica, which stocks gorgeous exclusive hand-selected jewellery from designers, 
including, Dannijo, Fallon, CC Skye and Samantha Wills. 
I promise you will be just as in awe as I was.
Next on my list will be the Pink LuLu Love Knot Ring.

PS. The 'pass the parcel' like wrapping was pretty on par with the precious cargo inside.


Sporty Luxe | Aimee Song.

Shit. I need to take a leaf out of Aimee's book and dress like this next time I attend an AFL game.

How she's sporting her team colours with the LA baseball cap and stripped jacket.
The sporty feel her floral TopShop (similarsneaker wedges create.
Her signature arm candy - no matter the event.

These are now noted in my visual memory bank.

Elin Kling | Winter Inspo.

Spotted at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Elin does the classic all-black winter look so effortlessly.
The bright pop of colour from the beanie adds that little bit of a statement.
(Which is my favourite bit of the whole look).

She's too cool.

MacGraw Spring/Summer '12/13.

MacGraw first came to my attention when watching Kelsie and Brittany battle on The Voice. 
Brittany wore this beautiful, bright yellow 'Kate Gets Hitched' dress that had everyone asking, including myself, who it was by.  
This is the lastest from their newly released Spring/Summer '12/'13 look book.

I'm one of those girls that is forever drawn to white, so this is heaven for me.
I also really adore the blush pink and pastel tones and their interpretation of the floral print trend.

Taylor Hearts Goot.

Taylor Tomasi Hill wearing Josh Goot.

As Artistic Director of Moda Operandi, the luxury international e-tailor store, 
Taylor visited the designer showrooms during her MBFWA visit, 
to hand pick some pieces from our talented designers to showcase in their online trunk shows.
"I'm here to find some great talent to put on the site, and to bring Australian designers to the States -
actually worldwide."

She fell in love with Josh Goot's S/S 2012 collection, choosing 36 looks to showcase on the site.
Other designers include, ksubi, Dion Lee, Ellery, Michael Lo Sordo and Christopher Esber.

This corset and a puffer jacket were her dream combination from Goot's collection.
It suits her perfectly.
And yay to the continued success of our amazing designers!

Carlie Waterman | The Innovators MBFWA.

Carlie Waterman at MBFWA.

She was one of the select few graduates chosen to take part in the Innovators show at Fashion Week.
Her collection was defined by it's attention to detail, architectural structure, 
beautiful, bright fabrication, amazing headpieces and gorgeous prints.
Check out the full collection here.

I'm totally lusting over that printed jacket she's wearing. Big time.

Also, take a peek at the short film 'Concertina' which takes a closer look at the amazing detail
of some of the up-and-coming designers collections from the show shot by Ryan Barry-Cotter and Samuel Raftl.

Team Anja | THE MET BALL.

Anja Rubik at the Met Ball wearing Anthony Vaccarello.

Honestly, I think that Anja looks incredible. She's that one in a million that can pull this dress off.
I don't think that she looks too thin at all, to me, she looks toned and healthy.
That's why she's a s u p e r m o d e l, because she looks the way she does.

Gwyneth and Anne V have done it all before, right?

The sad thing though, is seeing the comments that say, 
"ewww" or "someone get this girl a burger", "that's disgusting", "she's anorexic", "skinny is not sexy"... 
It's hurtful for girls, like me, who are naturally skinny and have a body shape like Anja's (minus the sky high legs). 
It can be perceived as a personal attack - that being skinny is not okay, that we are built wrong and that we are unwomanly.

I read an article in Grazia a little while ago that I related to entirely, 
about Australian model, Codie Young, who was deemed too thin to represent TopShop in their campaign at the time.
It was these words that resonated with me the most...
"Throughout high school people called me anorexic and asked if I was bulimic, which was extremely hard to deal with."
"For someone to say it's not okay to be as skinny as me is like saying it's not OK for me to be who I am; 
I get that not everyone is as skinny but then not everyone has curves to flaunt either."

'Fat' or 'anorexic'... It hurts just as much.

I'd love to hear your honest thoughts on Anja's Met Ball look.

Taylor Tomasi Hill | HARPER'S BAZAAR AUS.

Could this years fashion week really get any better?

Taylor Tomasi Hill was flown in to style the Oroton show at MBFWA during the week.
She was in Bondi today being snapped for Harper's Bazaar wearing Australia designers, Ellery and Josh Goot
straight off the runway, styled by Christine Centenera.
I think even shot by my favourite fashion photographer, Bec Parson, too.

Elin was also shooting for the magazine today.
Both of them in the one issue?

I was completely blown away by Kym Ellery's latest collection once again.

Kym wanted her latest collection to be a little more grown-up than sexy. 
Fresh-faced models walked the runway with cute little bear ears in ode to the memory 
of regretfully giving away her beloved teddy bear at the age of 18.
The structure and silhouettes were out of this world and so true to her design aesthetic. 
Sharp, high shoulders, high necklines, artful draping, short cuts, figure hugging fits and colours 
of shimmering silver, deep cherry red and moss green were also seen.

To me, Kym will always be the queen of the peplum.
