Come As You Are.

Whilst summer might be leaving us, the best thing about is that all the A/W lookbooks start rolling out. I've seen at least 10 this week for Australian designers and from that I have generated a wish list and pieces I want from all of them. Love that Stylestalker have used Alex Spencer from 4th and Bleeker,  she is one of my favourite Aussie babes.

Which A/W looks have my fellow Aussie readers put on their wishlists ? I'll take that contrast leather sleeved top and the chunky knit please!

You should take care.

Saw these stunning images the other day on Daydream Lily and I just had to repost them ... all of them. Such a simple concept, but executed so perfectly. Check out the rest of Pakayla Biehn's work here . In the meantime, just scroll through and marvel at these beauties.

She's a Rebel.

Rebel without a cause.

The latest lookbook from Market HQ.

Loving this styling and the overall vibe. I've always appreciated the grunge look and have wanted to for a long time do my own shoot similar to this. It's far more appropriate for an Australian company to shoot this sort of look for an A/W campaign, as our layering is usually minimal and our cooler months are far shorter. No need for for the huge coats, felt fedoras, opaque tights and long leathery boots... as dreamy as that all sounds.

Seriously though, where can I put my name down for that awesome black shearling vest and those studded boots ?

Check them out here. They still have summer stock on sale.

In Bloom.

Dying over the Alexis Mabille 2012 Spring Couture collection. Seriously wanting to use this as an excuse to say that painting your face and dressing up as a flower is "on-trend" this season, just so I can swan around looking this fabulous.

Like No Other.

Welcome to the future.
Animated lookbook by  Reed and Rader for Ashleigh Verrier's Spring 2012 collection. Totally memorised by these and the idea is just so freaking innovative! Why didn't I think of something like this sooner huh ?

Australia Day with Suboo.

Call me UN - Australian, but I have already expressed earlier how I feel about token Australian flag bikinis and board shorts here. This year, why not celebrate in style with a stunning piece from Australian Designer  Suboo.  

Until midnight on Thursday the 26th (Australia Day) if you spend $150.00 or more you will receive one of these ah-mazzzzzing beach umbrellas and let me tell you, I saw one of these the other day at the Brisbane Pop - up sale and they are well worth the investment. You be the envy of all beach goers this summer season.

ANVE Leather.

Dear Mum,

As the fashion conscious woman that I am, I now expect my occasional packed lunches that you put together for me to be placed inside one of these chic ANVE leather bags.
As much as I appreciate you hospitality, I will except nothing less.

I'm going to be the coolest kid in the playground with one of these.  

If you too wish to be the envy if all your work friends, these pretties come in a variety of colours (see here) . Also, as you may of noticed, they are far more versatile then just a common lunch bag.

Baby You're Electric.

A bit of Friday fun to lighten up what has been a very gloomy week here. Everyone where I am is hoping for nothing but sunshine and heat this weekend and NO MORE RAIN.

Australia Day is just around the corner as well as Australia's favourite festival, Big Day Out. There is sure to be far too many token Australian flag bikinis, thong wearing and board short bashing over the next week or so. For those of you who are a proud Australian, I hope you plan on practising your BBQ Burger flipping and sausage turning skills and make sure you have a few bevies this weekend so you remain "piss-fit" for Thursday.

Happy Friday everyone!
