Oh Yeah, I'll Tell You Something

These pieces by Eddie Borgo remind me of very sexy and very dangerous armour. Yum.
Lyric: I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

Maybe I'd Give You My World

Adore the effortlessly sexy and innately cool rock chic aesthetic seen at new Australian label Friend of Mine. Especially coveting the pieces in neon block colours and the fitted bandage dresses with strategically placed cutaways.
Lyric: Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

One Morning, One Morning, One Morning In May

This is Harry, the new edition to our ever expanding collection of adopted animals. He is a 10 year old Kelpie cross, an old farm dog abandoned in the pines and left to starve for three weeks. My father was lucky to be working near by and found him with his paws caught in a rabbit trap. We adopted him after his owner failed to come forward and since then his paws have healed and he has gained much needed weight. Harry is a true gentleman, good natured, loving and blissfully happy to sit with you while you scratch behind his ears. He might not be Dior, but in my opinion he is much, much better. Hope you think he is as gorgeous as I do.

We Are Always Running For The Thrill Of It

It's Spring here in Australia, meaning short skirts and sunscreen. It also means wearing fur (faux 0f course) is less than a brilliant idea. However, it doesn't stop me from shamelessly lusting after well worn leather bomber jackets with fur trim, soft ivory fur stoles and chocolate brown vests. Add studded accessories and higher than higher boots and I'll die happy. For once I'm cursing Australia's perfect weather!

You Must Have Seen Her Dancing in the Sand

When I grow up I want to as stylish as Christina Centenera, fashion editor and stylist for Harper's Bazaar Australia. Yves Saint Laurent 'Tribute' heels, Balmain jackets and gorgeous dresses by Josh Goot... what more could a girl want?

My Baby's Off Yeah He's Shooting Tigers

I came across a D.I.Y 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 fabric necklace - courtesy of P.S - I made this... - and decided, despite past D.I.Y failures, to attempt the seemingly uncomplicated instructions. The biggest problem I had was finding a fabric that didn't fray into oblivion. In the end I chose a bone white elastic (the instructions suggested upholstery trim), silver beads, white ribbon for the tie and suspender clips to join eveything together. Make sense? I didn't think so. Above are a few pictures of the finished product. Not exactly designer quality, but until I can afford the real thing...

We Could Steal Time Just For One Day

Designer Keko Hainswheeler is my new favourite person. His opulent accessories are so achingly gorgeous I could cry. Put Lady Gaga is some of his genius creations and I am a very happy girl.
Lyric: Heroes - David Bowie

I am currently addicted to the amazing style blog stylorectic. Ezsther has a truly enviable wardrobe, filled with structured and quirky pieces all showcased in gorgeous mini photo shoots. I'm jealous!

A Little Gambling Is Fun When You're With Me

First it was the talon cuff and claw necklace, and now I have fallen head over heels for the bird skull pendant necklace. Pamela Love rocks.

My Current Obsessions

Words cannot express how much I am coveting these Yves Saint Laurent 'Divine' Booties. The extreme platform, woven elastic banding and pencil thin heel... every detail is perfect. Sigh.

We All Scream For Icecream

Oh, how I love you Chloe Sevigny. Your whole look is perfect.
