an autumn day like any

My girlfriend Dani told me about a fabric store near my house - I found this vintage Armani fabric and made this dress up last night. Perfect Autumn colour

The fabric store owner vows that Velvet will never come back into fashion in Australia... Im seeing alot of it in Europe at the moment... this is my take on new trend

I found this gorgeous little sewing desk waiting for me over the weekend... my Dad bought it for $10 from the church op shop across the road

It matches my old singer

My glass wardrobe doors act as perfect white board for my sketches

I have a love/hate relationship with pattern making

While in New York last year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art had an most incredible exhibition titled Model As Muse. I have never been so up close and personal to some of the greatest masterpieces by Coco Chanel, YSL, Gucci etc
This book has a special place in my studio, and muses me whenever I need one

Another of my Muses - The Venus De Milo by Botticelli. I purchased this print from the Uffizi Galleria in Florence way back in 2005. Its a treasure.

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!
