dress up

at the end of last month, I put my skills with a glue gun to good use to create a dress made entirely from the pages of magazines as part of my intern duties for online boutique, frockshop. the dress was displayed in frockshop’s flagship store to celebrate UP LATE WITH MARIE CLAIRE – an event which bought brisbane’s best dressed to local style hub, james street for a night of fashion, food and flirtinis. we even scored a tweet from editor of marie claire magazine, jackie frank complimenting the shop window…which certainly made all those paper cuts worth it.

with winter just around the corner, I’ve started to hunt for some seasonal pieces to make it through the cooler months with the first must-have on the list a fur coat. judging from the latest street style press from the A/W fashion circuit, fur is certainly back on the fashion agenda for 2012. what’s your favourite look?

case closed

I’m currently trawling net-a-porter and shopbop to find a laptop case to house my shiny new macbook pro. I love the way designers such as marc jacobs, michael kors and diane von furstenberg can transform the seemingly mundane accessory into a hip, lust-have item which mimic the oversized clutches saturating street style press at the moment. decisions, decisions…

my new mister

have hardly taken off the mister ray choker since the lovely girls from harper and harley x molten store sent this amazing piece my way! I’d been eyeing off the super cool choker for months and couldn’t believe my luck when I heard I was the winner of the online boutique’s giveaway.

the minimalist design makes it the perfect accessory to add a touch of quintessential molten store edge to your everyday look. mister ray can be your new friend too – available online here.

sylvana ward durrett

special events director at US vogue, sylvanna ward durrett is my latest girl crush and new found source of outfit inspiration. beginning her career at the fashion bible as assistant to anna wintour, she climbed the style ladder for eight years and now plans many of fashion’s most spectacular and highly coveted events – including the annual costume benefit at the metropolitan museum of arts.

I love how her office look perfectly balances feminine and masculine design aesthetics, while her party style is a little more playful.. not to mention her enviable collection of designer shoes and accessories. watch out ms durrett – I’m out to steal your wardrobe and your job.

rare finds

“I think that as the world becomes more and more impersonal and clothing and objects become increasingly mass produced, there is a longing for the rare and exceptional.”

leigh lezark

my latest trawling of street style blogs and harpers bazaar/style.com coverage of PFW has bought my attention to leigh lezark – model, DJ and all around cool girl. never far from the front row and a regular face at designer parties, this girl has earned her place among fashion’s elite.

in total envy of her effortless style. it’s high end, edgy and oh so chic.

can’t believe last year’s ANTM winner Montana Cox just walked in Chanel’s A/W show at PFW alongside runway royalty Lindsay Wixson, Arizona Muse, Anja Rubik and Miranda Kerr! certainly one to watch this year…

crazy about the shoes in this collection too!
