Excited to share the amazing photographic work of Spanish artist Dara Scully. A lot of her photos possess a certain Tim Walker quality and charm, which is probably I felt an instant affinity to them. See her other works here.

A soggy start to Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival

It's a sad sad day when nine days of annual leave end. At least there is something to show for my nine day love affair with free time. I did a little guest blogging for Runway Passport at Brisbane Fashion Week ( which is all right there --> Tumblr.) There was an unfortunate abundance of wet weather on the first night and a serious lack of umbrella on my behalf (some would say I kick goals). So rocking the latest look I like to call, 'half-drowned-chic', I sat myself down near the kick ass blogger Francesca from Opinion Slave. She is also the new blogger for Broadway on The Mall's blog The Front Row!! We spoke blog-anese between oohing over shoes in the Nelson Molloy show (which Francesca got some sweet snaps of - along with my rookie iPhone snaps)

A note to Mr. Elbaz.

"I'm not a cool designer, and Lanvin is not a cool brand," Alber Elbaz

I know myself and many would strongly beg to differ. Look Alber you amazing little man, I love you, but clearly you are delirious with a severe case of humility. Talk about selling yourself short. To prove how I know you are so clearly blinded by the humble pie smeared over your stylish specs, I present to you an argument in pictorial form....

Really Vogue? Really? For the reigning super power of fashion publications you come to expect covers that are brave, experimental and at the forefront of global trends .... this months cover has left me more confused than someone with a southern cross tattoo wearing a Chanel suit.
