A European Winter.

Even though it's summer here in Australia, I wouldn't mind outfits 1 - 7.
The first look being my fave, with the tiger face tee in washed-out charcoal, teamed with that tight leather mini.

Even Cowgirls Get The Blues | Wildfox.

Wildfox SS 2012.
'Even Cowgirls Get The Blues'

"She was 16. She fell in love with a cowboy. She had a palamino pony.
They lived for adventure. He broke her heart. She went west.
She broke the law."

The new collection is inspired by the western film genre, 
encapsulating movie stars like Faye Dunaway and Clint Eastwood with their costumes of cowboy boots,
big hair, guns strapped to their hip and the romanticism behind the westerns of the 1960's.

This is probably one of the best Wildfox campaigns.
The outfits in the first shot are beyond pretty and my absolute faves, especially the corsets.

Photographer: Emir Eralp
Models: Olga Maliouk, Ali Stephens, Chrishell Stubbs + Chantal Stafford Abbott
Styling: Cassandra Kellogg, Emily Faulstich, Kimberley Gordon + Meredith Leyerzaph

Taylor Tomasi Hill Fave.

Taylor Tomasi Hill.
Artistic Director at Moda Operandi, formally the style and accessories director at US Marie Claire.

This was one of my favourite outfits that I saw of her running around in during Fashion Week.
Can anyone ID the dress and jewellery?
I heard it's a Versace belt that she's used as a wrap around bracelet.

I L O V E the ultra feminine, soft, shredded, tulle-like bottom half of the dress.
And the fact that she pairs nearly everything with peep-toed ankle booties.

Scandinavian Style II.

With the weather constantly surprising me in Melbourne already this summer, 
I can't help but think that this the perfect go-to summer outfit.
I pretty much live in a white shirt just like this, and although polka dots aren't quite my thing, 
the flowy style of the shorts with the shirt tucked is pretty cute.

Thanks to my lovely friend over at Style Spot for attracting me to this shot!

I need to fulfill my dream of living in Sweden so badly.

Scandinavian Style.

Swedish model, Elsa Sylvan.
I don't think I've seen boyfriend jeans styled anywhere near as perfect as this.

Seriously, could Swedish people be any cooler?
And yep! It's decided, like it was a long time ago...
I'm going to live the life of a Swedish fashionista in my next life.

PS. I've said this before, but I need Monki in my life.

Yeezy And VS Models.

Kanye at the Victoria's Secret Show 2011.

Yeezy finally performed this year in a much anticipated appearance having canceled his 
debut performance in 2007 after his mum suddenly passed away.
And, my gosh, was I dancing around my living room like a lunatic while he performed 'Stronger' during
the 'Super Angels' section and then when he and Jay Z took the stage to perform 'Niggas In Paris'.

I think my favourite part was Kanye's outfit though.
Could he be anymore of a fashionista?!
Versace for H&M jacket and his own Air Yeezy 2 sneakers. 
I just need to find out who makes those killer leather pants.

PS. My new fave website - Dress Like Kanye West.

Zanita x Kelly Smith For Harper's Bazaar.


This ethereal work is the result of a collaboration between two amazingly talented artists. 
Photographer: Zanita and Illustrator: Kelly Smith of Birdy & Me

Seeing images like this seriously makes me wish I stuck to my Year 12 dream of becoming a fashion photographer.
And also makes me wish that I was a pure artistic genius in illustrating like Kelly.
Her work was inspirational to my studies last year and continues to inspire me creatively every day.

*I had been feeling a little bit uninspired and therefore unmotivated with blogging lately,
but these last few posts have really elevated my mood.
Thank goodness for that, because it was getting a little depressing over here!

Tuula Wish List.

I had been lusting after these Zimmermann and Ellery peices for a little while and each day, 
one by one, they popped up perfectly styled on Jessica Stein's incredible blog, Tuula.
It was like she had secret access to my designer wish list. 

I think it's safe to say that I'm even more smitten after seeing them on the gorgeous Jessica.
Now to magically add a couple of inches to my legs to work these babies.
With a big FAT bank balance to match.

Also, props to Nicole Cooper of Confident Liar for taking some of these incredible shots. I'm in awe.
