Rodarte for OC

r o d a r t e x O C
May I just begin by saying...what a collaboration. I really love both labels, but I would never have picked them to work together! When I think of Rodarte I think of romantic, intriguing and complicated designs which are basically works of art. I have loved Rodarte since I saw a collection of theirs back in 2008...I also loved the Mulvey sisters' issue of Lula, and I thought was strange that not many other people did.
Contrastingly, Opening Ceremony has always been street smart, casual and really really cool to me....which lead me to ask "How will this work!?"
Alas, these images from their lookbook have disproved all of my doubts as it is incredible. I can really see Rodarte in these looks as they are whimsical and really interesting. I think they are also very wearable which is where OC comes in. The muted colour pallete is particularly great. So perfect for spring!
Suffice to say I'm in love...and I want that hair!

au revoir

patti b

P a t t i B o y d
I think it would be safe to say that 60's groupies are probably my biggest style icons.
There is no wonder that these ladies inspired the world of some of the sixties best creatives. Marianne Faithful, Edie Sedgwick, Anna Karina, Jane Asher, Jean Shrimpton, Yoko Ono, Mimi Farina and Patti Boyd are a few of my favourites with a collective style that could be described as romantic, classic and typically sixties.
Today I thought I'd do a little post about probably the most successful (and arguably the most beautiful) 60's groupie, Pattie Boyd who not only dated George Harrison but also Eric Clapton.
Lucky lady!

U S A trip 2011!

Hello all, I have some exciting news.... I'm going to America in three weeks!
We're going on a little family holiday to San Francisco and New York and I thought I'd do a few posts to boost up my momentum. I've been to San Francisco before, back in 2008, and I can safely say it is my favourite city in the world. It is magically sad in its fog ridden haze but it is also colourful and crisp and bright. Last time we stayed at Fishermans wharf and this time we will be staying in my favourite suburb in all the lands, H a i g h t A s h b u r y !

I've been saving my pennies for months upon months and plan to spend most of them in the vintage stores in Haight Ashbury, which I think are the best in the world. Unfortunatley I lost all my pictures from my last visit, so here are a few beautiful images of my beloved city!

For further momentum, I have been engaging in all American things, s
uch as blogs, music and books. If you want to get in the San Francisco spirit (or just want a good read) I recommend Jack Keroac's "On The Road" (amazing of my favourites!); for some tuneage, I recommend "If you're going to San Francisco" by The Byrds (I listened to it last time I was there...with flowers in my hair!) and for a bit of blogging fun, check out San Francisco based blog Blushing Ambition here. I love, love, love her style (and will be visiting a few of the resturants she photographs so well!)

Next time, New York!
Au revoir.

chambray again

c h a m b r a y!

(Me and my friends last year- i'm the one in the chambray dress!)
During this wierd late winter/ almost spring time, I find myself being far more swayed by spring fashion. Chambray has always been one of my spring favourites, so I've been collecting some images to get me (and everyone else still stuck in winter right now) in the spring mood.
Remember to click on the images if you want to see them larger.

winter times!

w i n t e r outfit o n e
This is probably the most inappropriate outfit for today as anyone in Sydney would know, it is the most beautiful and sunny day in such a long time! I wore this outfit last week when it was raining and cold and evil outside, and as you can see I finally got myself a pair of grey stockings!
These pics are really bad quality but you can see my room a little bit, which is a post I've been meaning to do for a while...maybe its time?
Top and stockings: from a boutique in Chinatown
Skirt: Secret Squirrel

au revoir!
