Triangl Swimwear | MILLY.

So we all love the TRIANGL 'Lucie' underwear sets and had high hopes that it would 
be made into a swimsuit someday. 
Fortunately for us hopefuls, that day has come.

Introducing the MILLY neoprene bikini in 3 pops of colour...

I'm eagerly anticipating the arrival of mine in the post any day now!
Which colour is your top pick?

The 6 Pairs Of Boots That Make The Lust List.

All I will dream of while nodding off to sleep tonight.

Swedish Label TRIWA.

TRIWA stands for 'Transforming the Industry of Watches' and is a cult Swedish label 
known for their fashion forward time pieces and eyewear designs. Born from four Scandinavian friends who 
shared a contemporary dream and creative passion, inspiration stemmed from Scandinavian heritage, with 
the main goal being that their products not only look good, but feel good.

More specifically, the watches seek style as the main focus, with a mixture of elements used, including stainless steel, 
shiny gold and brushed gunmetal. Bursts of colours were incorporated as an effort to transform and develop new 
looks, from straps that range from dressy and elegant, to sporty, canvas styles.

TRIWA SHADES was introduced in 2009 and just like their watches, the shades are designed to be super stylish, 
with classical silhouettes beautifully handcrafted in acetate with contemporary detailing and contrasting temple tips. 
Each frame is carefully polished and fitted with lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision, so that the eyes are 
getting the best protection possible.

I have handpicked my most loved watches and shades from the collection - rose gold watches have 
been a sort after accessory for a long while now, but I admit I am fond of the all-black Sort of Black 
Chrono. As for the sunglasses, a turtleshell is my go-to, so the Debbie (first image) is ideal, but I do 
love the shape and detail on the Olivia (last image).

Hanalei x Oyster.

Hanalei Reponty, real life mermaid and model, for Oyster magazine.

Born and raised in Tahiti, learning to surf and swim before she could even walk. 
Hanalei now resides at the Northern Beaches in Sydney with her family, having moved to Australia at 
the age of 18 to pursue her studies at university and expand her modelling career. Her most treasured 
memory is running naked on the beach in Tahiti with her little brother - sandy, salty and sunburnt.

Spring Suit Styling.

The Capstone Tuxedo - Black with Polka Dot Lining

So it's no secret that us girls LOVE a man in a suit. There's ultimately nothing more appealing 
to the female eye than seeing a well tailored suit on a handsome guy, especially when it comes 
down to a slim fit blazer, navy in colour, with a slim straight legged pant.

I have teamed up with BONOBOS, a men's apparel brand focused on "better-fitting clothes and a better 
shopping experience", specialising in men's suits, just in time for the launch of their new collection of 
Bonobos is all about helping find the right fit and have even spent years developing a range to fit options 
for every type of guy and every item that they may require in their wardrobe. The so-called "ninja's" are even there 
to help you online with any questions or concerns you may have and Bonobos are constantly releasing 
new items, so you are bound to find what you're after.
 They even offer a "Groomservice" for Brides and Grooms to help find the perfect attire for their big day.

My personal picks are the Foundation Slim Cotton suit in navy (in the first image), paired with the pale blue 
and white striped shirt. It is perfect for a day at the office, or for a more relaxed formal family affair. 
My other pick is more suited for a wedding or a much fancier event and it is the Capstone Tuxedo in black 
w/ polka dot lining (in the very last image), paired perfectly with a black bow tie.
I've included two shota of real life couples on their wedding day with the groom dressed in BONOBOS - so suave!

There are 3 ways that you can shop at Bonobos and for us Australians, 
that would be via their online store, or for you lucky fellow Americans, 
at the Guideshop or through Nordstorm located around the US.

Look Book | Country Road Winter.

Country Road Autumn/Winter '14 Collection.

The selection of knitwear and coats in this collection have me dreaming up endless winter outfits.
All I want to throw on on these chilly winter days in Melbourne is a turtleneck sweater, skinny jeans, a 
great heavy coat and tall pair of boots. (I'm looking at the second last image more specifically.)

Country Road always pulls out the goods, season after season.
