Most Wanted

I go through phases. Eating toast and Vegemite every morning for six months, listening only to musical soundtracks (Spring Awakening, Cabaret, Easter Parade, Wicked etc) in my car... well the list goes on. My current phase: necklaces. I can't seem to get enough, especially of the fine chained, pendant variety. Which is why New York jewellery designer Anna Sabino's jewellery collection, Lucid New York, makes me so happy. I'm especially lusting after the Gun & Handcuff necklace. Check out the rest of the gorgeous collection.

And It Tastes Like Cherry Cola

I wrote about my love for Maniamania at the start of the year and my adoration for the David Bowie, Anita Pallenberg inspired jewellery range has not abated. Images for the 2010 look book are almost as lust worthy as the jewellery itself.

Returned To This Lonesome Ocean

Incredibly excited about the new Shakuhachi Spring/Summer 2010/2011 collection currently available to pre-order from mycatwalk. Shakuhachi (Jessie White) is one of my favourite Australian designers and every season I end up buying more and more pieces. I'm a sucker for anything draped, so you can see why the current collection has me all a flutter. Can't wait for summer.
