Designer Series Runway #1

Day 2 of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week brought the first of the designer series runway shows with it. Featuring some of my favourite Australian designers; Gwendolynne, Aurelio Costarella and Rachel Gilbert were among an impressive line up worthy of the grand opening night. 
The show was opened by stunning "birds" of the Phillip Adam Ballet Lab, while  Sophie wore a divine black velvet ensemble topped with exquisite feather head piece by Richard Nylon.
PETA had been protesting outside before the show began, so it was not a shock when they stormed in and took over the runway. In fact most of the audience sat fixed as if it were part of the show. When it was announced that we would have to evacuate the building, that irked the crowd and the protesters were lead out. Unfortunately only two gowns remained to be seen on the runway, and I thought to myself that the PETA crew could have timed it better, so it was more like a mid movie interval - like they do in Europe so everyone can get their nicotine fix. Bravo to their message - but even more - bravo to the two woman's bravado for getting up in front of a discerning crowd in their polyester blend jersey sacks and 1991 black boots.

Velvet Heaven
My top pick
And the best way to top off a night filled with birds of a feather, sky scraper stilettos and dare I say nudity:
Cocktails from the most enviro friendly bar in town, Council House No#2
Rose & Lime concoction 
Warm Soy Milk with lashings of liqueur - "Christmas in a glass"
Great night out with a best friend

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!
