The Hold up.

Could these be any cooler ? My pick, the black slouch shoulder bag with gun, or the black clutch.

These are going on my wish list for when I return and can re-evaluate my budget.

Outfit Inspiration: Bright Separates.

I don't think I'm going to get over the brights colouring blocking trend. Just perusing shopbop and I can across this. I then realised that I have this exact same skirt! I picked mine up for $5 at the suitcase rummage though.. WINNING!

Going home to team it with something bright and whimsical looking.

So Cute: Internet find.

Saw these bad boys here ... I DIE for the baby pink ones...

I wonder if the lipstick would eventually wear down ? haha

Lennon Lover.

Crushing on this style of sunglasses. Typical round style as seen on iconic rockers like John Lennon and Ozzy Osbourne and more recently Lady GaGa. They are making a massive comeback and I honestly think this style suits nearly all face shape. Pop into a shop and try a pair on, it will be love at first sight!

I'm struggling to pick which ones I want, trying to find a mint condition vintage pair with black and gold frames. Hit a girl up if you have seen some...

We envy Alex: Alex Sultan

Melbourne based, Brisbane bred. I think it's safe to claim Alex Sultan as one of our own...

Young fashion enthusiast and creative director of her own swimwear/clothing label I Envy Alex has recently returned to Brisbane after her career saw this youngster pack up her bags and head down south. Alex left Brisbane to endeavour on a small adventure in retail management down in Melbourne, with hopes to also promote and expose her label. 

Alex has been objective and realistic in dealing with her label and has come to accept the struggles of starting from the bottom and working her way up as a young designer. She has put in the hard miles to source stockists and  design for a specific target market and so far, things seem to be paying off. With pending financial backing, Alex contemplates moving back home to continue the designing of her new collection which she hopes to release before the end of the year.

With bangin personal style her self, how could I not take the opportunity to get together with this young entrepreneur. Her style is modern, unique and fresh and it is obvious that she finds inspiration from fellow bloggers such as Rumi Neely from Fashion Toast

My mum always told to me surround your self with successful people and you will always strive to do your best, Alex's parents must have told her the same thing because she is fortunate enough to be the girlfriend of The Bunker Boutique owner Jordan Ivonenitti who obviously encourages her passion as it is very much his own.  Support is the key in any attempt to launch your own label.

Thank you Alex. Stay tuned  next week for my catch-up with Jordan ...

Preppy Winter.

Outfit Post #4

I couldn't wait to do an outfit post using my new Gary Bigeni shorts that I bought at the sample sale last weekend (see post here). I actually went out and bought this cute little jumper just so that I could make the outfit appropriate for a winter post.

Wore this outfit to work yesterday and I felt amazing ! There is no better feeling than waking up in the morning and knowing exactly what you are going to wear that day, hence why I enjoy doing the outfit layouts, that and the fact that I'm horribly un-photogenic.

This outfit is another perfect example of combing lower end labels with high end. You don't always have to be strutting around in $500 plus items of clothing to feel good. I usually feel rather content wearing something from Target, as long as I have put together the outfit well.

Shirt: Supre
Jumper: Red Berry
Shorts: Gary Bigeni
Scarf: Target
Earrings: Diva
Skull Bangles: Samantha Wills
Shoes: RMK
Bag: LV

Lorna Jane: Modern Muse

Lorna Jane current campaign "Modern Muse." has been shot all over Brisbane City. See if you can recognise any of the scenery in these shots.

I'm like this more fashionable approach towards their campaign. Just goes to show that Lorna Jane isn't just a lifestyle brand but a fashion label as well.  You can check out the behind the scenes here.

Textured Dreamer.

Fringe, lace, crochet, weaving, mohair, feathers, threading, plating, beading, floating, layered textured dreams. Very consistent this season and so easy in most cases to DIY, especially the Celine bag....

I think Givenchy did it best, and I think it's evident in how many times we have seen celebrities and models wearing pieces from their Fall 2010 collection especially last week at the Met Ball and last night at the amFAR Awards.
