Fashion at the moment is quite calm and seems to be focusing more on the beauty of clothing for example the natural beauty of a simple cream dress. It’s a strong shape, and that’s all it needs to be the next big thing. This months issue of Vogue Australia had a focus on brides. There was first, second and third brides. First brides focusing on extravagant, beautiful and fun dress, second brides were more simple beauty and the third bride was dressed like she was off to a winter tea party… In a pink suit. It was quite sad actually, it was like the third bride had just given up on love. Given up on looking good for a wedding, because it’s a waste of money since the marriage won’t last long. I was expecting a divorce outfit after that. I believe every bride should look there best no matter the circumstances, and to never give up on love because you have true loves everywhere all over the world, and you just have to make your pick right.
Elie Saab Haute Couture S/S ’11
So there ! These dresses are amazing and fit for a queen. I made a new time record on making a dress last night. I was pretty proud of myself even though in industry it’s probably not that impressive, but 5 hours and about 30 minutes was my time. Anyway after seeing this dress and looking back at a frustrating 5 and a half hours, I can’t help but praise and look up to whoever was brave enough to make this dress. Marc Jacobs new daisy is here!
This is yet another amazing scent by the Marc Jacobs. I went and got a tester card the other day and I put it in my wallet, and now I can smell Eau so fresh wherever I go!
I just had to put this up. Lady Gaga: Legend

I watched such a good program last night on Proenza Shouler. It was about the steps they went through to get to that final bow and a round of applause on the catwalk. As stressful as the program was with all the miss fitting of garments, shoes breaking and literally minutes before the show started a collar wasn’t sitting right, seeing the creation behind the look book, the catwalks and the garment itself, is such an inspiration and just got me so excited about the fashion industry and I just can’t wait to be doing the same. I also decided that Anna Wintor does not sound as scary as she looks. I also feared for the designers and all the disasters that could happen backstage, but what was amazing, is how quickly people came up with ideas to fix the problems. I take my hat off and bow to the hard working people backstage of any event.
Strawberries and Cream
It’s been so long since I have worn a really bright colour. I have been going through a bit of a dark phase I think. But wearing this outfit, even through I changed out of it strait away, brought a sense of relief and freedom. It very interesting as to how this happened, but I loved how wearing a colour just brightens your mood, try it, it actually works.
The outfit: So I used this amazing sheer, hot pink shawl that I have had for years and draped it over my neck like a scarf, then wrapped it around and belted it. It’s pretty simple, and then I topped it off with my white sheer vest that I made. I also may have stolen the idea from an amazing outfit off vanessajackman.com, it was one of those moments when you see an outfit and immediately makes you think of something you have in your closet and you just have to see if you can pull it off.
An exhibition of fashion illustrations
I have decided to add a new category to my blog, art. I see art as fashion through colour and texture, and the way that it brightens moods. Illustrating fashion is exhibiting fashion illustrations by some of Brisbane's best fashion designers. Fashion Illustration is an art though that I am a little obsessed over, I mean if we weren’t renting, my walls would be covered in drawings and mood boards.
