Finally had a night to myself, here are some collages I made watching Fear and Loathing.
Hope you enjoy them


If my answers frighten you should cease asking scary questions

In my search for the perfect mo I came across these artworks.
Portraiture from graphic artist Noma Bar. I dig it.


a post about mustaches

Brilliant? Oui Oui ....

Crazy french mustache's always make me smile, especially crazy french mustache novelty goods. Its Movember very shortly too, and many of my man friends have started donning the fuzz. Seeing as women lack the genetic make up to grow facial hair for the occasion ..... I thought few of these items would come in handy. The gloves are awesome!

Mustaches always remind me of my senior art teacher, who not only styled his facial hair al la Salvidor Dali, but he actually looked freakishly similar. He made art class great. Wasn't the most incredible teacher, never taught us a thing. But he had this "I-had-way-too-much-fun-in-the-seventies" personality, so I couldn't help but like the guy. On the topic of facial hair that brightens my day, my friend and pseudo wife Lauren introduced me to an Adelaide band called The Beards. A band with beards, that sing about beards. Exclusively. Those with a good sense of humour and a love of classic rock must check it out. My favourite lyrics? "If your dad doesn't have a beard, you have two mums ..... two beardless mums" ......... you've been warned.

Vogue Paris
Raquel Zimmerman shot by Mario Sorrenti
Styling by Emanuelle Alt

I absolutely love this photo shoot from Vogue Paris. Its such an artfully constructed contrast between ultra feminine styling and modern street art. The clothes have been styled in such a way that they almost become apart of the art on the walls. Vogue Paris never ceases to amaze. Neither do Raquel's impossibly long legs. Loving the black shoes in the shoot, and the art on the wall in the first photo ... hello MJ tribute.

here fishy, fishy, fishy

Proenza Schouler Spring 2010

Carrying on from the aquatic inspirations seen at Alexander McQueen, I picked up on a few fishy references throughout the Proenza Schouler collection when I was skimming through it last night. The silky vibrant colours used in the patterns and accessories reminded me so much of the the fish and coral up north on the Great Barrier Reef. The designers noted their love of surfing as one of their inspirations for the season, so I guess that explains the resort, oceanic vibe I'm getting ..... overall its a fun collection with a lot of beautiful prints that I quite enjoy

See the full collection here at



Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard.
Some do it with a bitter hook,
Some with a flattering word.
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword.

Some kill their love when they are young,
and some when they are old. 
Some strangle with the hands of lust
Some with hands of gold.
The kindest use a knife, because
The dead so soon grow old.

Some love too little, some too long
Some sell, and others buy.
Some do the deed with many tears
And some without a sigh.
For each man kills the thing he loves
Yet each man does not die

DEAD ROCKERS by Mone Maurer
Don't know much about the origins of these artworks unfortunately. All google was able to tell me was that they are from a German based artist. Would love to know more about them, if anyone has any information they could share? They are as great as the men they were painted of. And plus they remind me of acid wash jeans. I want them all, one to hang on every wall of my lounge room. & then I can sit in the middle of the room in all my glory wearing this top I bought the other day from Gripp, think it would match them perfectly .... what a win. This baby was worth every penny.



Sweeter than heaven, Hotter then hell

Indeed. Florence Welch is an absolute VIXEN




This is the most earth shattering news, Incu are bringing Topshop down under. Now all I have to do is get my pretty little heels down to Sydney to battle some crowds ..... I have a feeling trying to get in on opening day will be like the first 5 minutes of Saving Private Ryan
