Monkey & Me

I don't think I've ever been so jealous. I want a monkey all of my own.

Just Adore Catherine

Adore Catherine. Adore the tattoo. Adore this photo.

Lily Allen for Chanel

I understand there is a little bit of a love/hate reaction to the new Chanel ad campaign featuring Lily Allen as the face of the Chanel handbag line, Chanel Coco Cocoon. Personally I think Lily Allen looks gorgeous and I'm loving the nod to the awesomeness that is Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. Anyway, as far as I'm concerned Karl Lagerfeld can do no wrong.

Music Festival Fashion

I love musical festival fashion, to me it's the epitome of warmer weather, sunscreen, paddlepops and long days spent relaxing in the park. Here are a few of my favourite looks from the Festival Internacional De Benicassim in Spain.

Good Golly

I'm not really a fan of Molly Sims, but I'm loving the 60's vibe she's working at the first anniversary of Phillip Lim's L.A store. Tanned skin, kohl rimmed eyes and blonde, blonde, blonde hair. It's all very Sharon Tate and Valley of the Dolls. Oh, and fantastic heels too.

New Buys

Last night my lovely friend Steph and I headed to the Piccadilly Cinema on O'Connell St. to catch the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. As a bit of a Harry Potter nerd I was incredibly excited to score some tickets a few hours before the big show. Personally I loved it, sure I was slightly heartbroken Gary Oldman was no longer sharing his awesomeness, but my love for red haired geeks more than made up for it. Anyway the purpose of this post was to share some pictures of my new patent leather Marc by Marc Jacobs ankle boots (which I wore last night, see the not so subtle link?). I've been on the look out for the perfect pair of black ankle boots for months and fell head over heels when I spotted these bad boys. My favourite part has to be the cobalt blue/turquoise trim. Shoe lust.
P.S: Sorry for the blurry final pic, I was too lazy to take another one.
P.P.S: Also sorry for the dirt on the bottom of the shoes, Wednesday night was wet and muddy and again I was too lazy to take more pics.

Chanel Fall 2009 Couture Collection

In my opinion Karl Lagerfeld is regarded as a genius for a very good reason. The all white Spring 2009 Couture Collection is as close to perfection one can get and though I don't believe this current Fall collection quite lived up to expectations, it did come awfully close. The lace tights, nude chiffon dresses, midnight blue and raspberry coloured sheaths, not to mention the jewelled shoulders, it's all breathtaking. I long for the days when I can afford Chanel.

Most Wanted

The spring/summer 2009 season is currently available to pre-order at My Catwalk, which means two things. One, the winter months are coming to an end and two, lots of money shall be spent. Above are just a few of the items that I am lusting after (from top left Nylon Frocks, Alice McCall, Ellery, Nylon Flocks, Alice McCall and Bec & Bridge).

Today's Inspiration - Nick Cave

Fitted blazers, skinny jeans, vintage tees, leather jackets, sequins? What's not to love?

Givenchy Fall 2009 Couture Collection

There are no words.

Christian Dior Fall 2009 Couture Collection

There is nothing revolutionary about Christian Dior's Fall 2009 Couture collection, but when the clothes are this beautiful does it matter? I am utterly inlove with the whole collection, from the vibrant jewel colours to the draped lines and lace detail, everything is just perfect.

Night Time is the Right Time

Aretha Franklin reference aside, I am not a morning person. As far as I'm concerned 7am is still night and there can be no earthly reason to face the world at such an ungodly hour. So you can imagine my horror when a very cheery, very cruel telemarketer chose 7:13am to wake me from my slumber to inform me about the benefits of changing phone services. My response was to hang up the phone, crawl back under the covers and mutter to myself about sadistic telemarketers until I resumed my comatose state. Don't telemarketers realise that weekends, like tea time (dinner time for non-Australians) are out of bounds? I mean really. Okay, now that I've finished venting please feel free to ignore this post.

Ashley Olsen Love

When it comes to Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen's sartorial style, most people fall into two categories. Those who are MK devotees and those who adore Ashley Olsen. Personally I fall into the latter category, there is something about Ashley's streamlined elegance that makes me happy. Now don't get me wrong, MK's choice of accessories makes me green with envy. She is a woman after my own heart who believes the more items of jewellery you wear the better. However Ashley's pared down style, casually curled hair and innate ability to personalise each outfit puts her into another league. Is it possible die from style jealously?

Oyster Editorial

I can't even begin to describe how truly beautiful and impossibly perfect this June/July 2009 OYSTER magazine editorial is. The use of light and shape, not to mention the insane chemistry between the two models, makes this one of the best editorials I've seen in a very long time. I posted one of the images in a previous post, but I am struggling to remember why I didn't post the rest. Perhaps I wanted to keep them to myself just a little bit longer? Either way I hope you love them as much as I do.

Victoire de Castellane for Dior

Aren't they perfect? Costume jewellery has never looked so good.

Still Loving...

I'm lusting after blue in all it's forms and no matter how I try the mix of blue and black still makes my heart beat that bit faster. From top left Moschino Cheap & Chic, Sonia Rykiel, BCBG Max Azria and Marni (all Resort 2010).
