I’ve known the resort 2014 gallery has been up for a while and I have been staying away from it knowing full well I would spend ages musing over the collections and the designers (not a good way to spend my limited time during exam block). Well as of today I am uni-free (for a little while at least) and true to form I have spent just over 2 hours enjoying my glimpse into what I want my wardrobe to be like.
Here are my favourites.

Even though your work patterns don’t change or your work and study in my case, as the temperature falls I always feel like my energy levels fall dramatically. Merely getting out of bed itself is an achievement for me.
The first day of winter is always really exciting for me. I think of all the coats and layers I’ll get to wear and the cute little boots, and warm scarfs forgetting that epic hurdle of getting out of bed in enough time to get to work on time, let alone plan an outfit.
So here’s to winter. You evil beast. I love you. Secretly
From a brand that I have loved so dearly for doing bring orange in everything, magenta in ways I had never thought to wear magenta and the comfiest tees I have ever had EVER! Comes the FUTURE OF NOW. It has been coming slowly I feel, with the tailoring and the beautiful beadwork that has been sneaking its way in, but to me, the future of now seems so grown up, so beautiful just YES.
Sass and Bide were the start of my love of labels and it has just kept growing. They are amazing with tees, denim, relaxed styling, soft tailoring and now watch them absolutely master monochrome. This could very soon make up the majority of my work wardrobe.
Here are my favourites of this collection (it is basically the whole collection). Enjoy
If you are anything like me, every month you have your pile or magazines that you demolish, finding some great fashion buys and good stories along the way. My big three are Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Shop til you drop and occasionally i’ll buy the international ones for some inspiration. However, this month I saw a brand spanking new magazine sitting on the shelf next to them and I had to give it a go.
Recently, I had just watched an interview with Lorna Jane on a current affairs (I think it was anyways) and admired the vibe that she gave out as well as her easy going attitude. An Australian business woman leading the way in fashion, health and life style- what’s not to love.
Seeing Lorna on the cover I knew that this magazine was something different- not putting a big name model or a hollywood celebrity as the cover girl on their launch issue certainly is making a statement about where they stand.
Reading through this magazine last night I was pleasantly surprised on the differences messenger collective was bringing to the world of fashion magazines. There were articles of substance of things slightly more important that lyposuction and hairstyles while still keeping the world of fashion alive.
This magazine is going to take me more that one sitting to finish and I love that. I will enjoy reading this baby all throughout the month and can’t wait for the next one.
If you haven’t already grabbed yourself a copy I highly recommend you do. Get inspired!
Thank you Lisa Messenger
I’ve spent the day catching up on revenge and enjoying Ashley’s style, She always looks so good, legs for day. But its not just what she wears but how she wears it. Clothes just always just look better on skinny people.
Oh and I wouldn’t mind her accent along with her wardrobe and her legs 🙂
I think everyone in their right mind thinks that little kids dressed well is one of the cutest things in the world. A little girl wearing a trench coat and beret or a little boy wearing a button down shirt, chinos and boat shoes is enough to make me wish I was growing up in this era. Being at a christening today I was enjoying the little girls enjoying dressing up for the occasion, with their jewellery, their bags, their dresses and it got me thinking when does fashion really start to set in?
I joke to all the time that when I have a little girl I’ll sit their reading shop til you drop and she will be sitting next to me reading shop kids, and I will have my little fashionista by my side.
Kids grow out of their clothes so fast why not dress them in the best trends of the season? They will grow out of them around the same time the new trends start.
Now as much as my mum tries to tell me it was cool in the early 90’s, I wish my mum dressed me like Harper (and had her own fashion line for me to drool over as I grew up) Oh well. We can just enjoy these little fashionista’s
Whats your thought’s on my rainbow skater dress?
Possibly one of my favourite fabrics every is again one of the hot looks of the season. Leather has the ability to look both edgy and elegant, being able to be worn on a casual day out or at a hip night party.
I love the different shades of leather thats coming through, reds, greens, beiges. drool …
