an afternoon in beautiful Melbourne

Yesterday we decided to take advantage of the last of summer by having a picnic in the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne city. It also was a perfect day for capturing the unique Melbourne scape. 
Unlike anywhere else in the world I have visited, Melbournians have an unwavering appreciation of culture, food and fashion, always embracing the young, the local, the weird and unique. There doesn't seem the be clique or fashion fads of other cities. Sure there are little packs of trends followers, but we love them too. And there is the weather. Its not unusual to begin a day in a bikini at breakfast, leggings by lunch and back to a mini dress by dinner. So I guess you can say there is one trend accessory that a smart melbournian lady will have, and thats a big handbag!

Vision board

A lovely friend shared Pinterest with me recently. I don't quite know how to navigate around it, or what its all about, but I do know that I now have the easiest way to catch images that inspire me everyday. I gather that its like instagram or twitter where you can share and re-pin posts - I just havent gotten that far yet. When you sign up you download a Pin It tab to your nav bar, so when I'm surfing my favourite blogs, I can capture the images that most inspire me to one page - something like this: You can follow my pin board , sign up and start your own. I have found it very useful, and hopefully soon I'll get the gist of how it actually works

Pyjama Partay

I woke up at a leisurely 5pm yesterday, right as my brother, sister and her partner piled into the house announcing a cinema jaunt in 15 minutes. I was glad to be pulled out of my coma, and even more glad that the Pyjama pant trend has officially hit [in europe anyway :s]. Wearing my bed clothes and a Zara knit, we grabbed a few shots before heading up to the cinema - only to find the film we were seeing was not actually playing! In my sleep state I also didnt notice a friend right behind me... discovered late last night when looking back through these pics! random Anyway, we changed cinemas and ended up seeing Young Adult - Great Film! Wearing Pants from Tempt / Zara Knit / Earrings from Nimbin [ thus the rainbow] / Whittner shoes / the bag [i love it!] is Saci's most recent vintage purchase  We are having another stall at the South Yarra Market this Saturday [4th] Its from 11am to late... but the market part wraps up around 3pm. We had a ball last time. Ther


My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!
