Random Retro

September 30, 2012

I was at Westfield Southland today trying to blow all my birthday money and I came across this travelling vintage shop called Trish Hunter Finds. Everything had a very 60s and 70s feel and in the centre was a darling vintage caravan which doubled as a shop.

Show Time

September 28, 2012

Two years ago I worked at the Royal Melbourne Show and I vowed never to pay for entry to the show again. Luckily, this year I got myself two free tickets so it was show time once again! Melbourne really turned on the weather for us with an amazing sunny 27C day and it stayed warm well into the night.

Tesselaar Tulip Festival

September 24, 2012

Tucked away in the hills about an hours drive from Melbourne is a little slice of floral heaven in the town of Silvan. The Tesselaar Tulip Festival was dreamt up by the Grandfather of the now owners of the beautiful tulip farm and once a year they open it to the public.

Welcome To Wonderland

September 23, 2012

So I'm finally 21, which in Australia doesn't really mean much, but it's an excuse to eat cake and see friends. I've had my heart set on an Alice In Wonderland themed party for a while now, not because I'm super obsessed with it, but because of the whimsy of wonderland. 

Japan 2007

September 19, 2012

So life has been a little slow this week. I've had exams and assignments, and there hasn't been much on in Melbourne that I'm interested in/can afford. So I decided to trawl through my old photos to see what I could come up with to tie me over until the weekend. I decided to blog about my trip to Japan in 2007. I know, this was aaagggeess ago, but it was either this or nothing, so I'm going with this.

South Melbourne Market

September 13, 2012

I was walking through South Melbourne the other day for a completely unrelated reason and happened to come across the South Melbourne Markets. It's been a while since I've been there and since it was literally across the road, I decided to go revisit it.

Gorman x Rhys Lee Launch Party

September 10, 2012

Australian women's clothing brand Gorman recently had a launch party to celebrate their collaboration with Rhys Lee at Melbourne's GPO. We were treated to wine, beer and mini bean burrito type things. All very yum. The collection features a lot of vibrant prints and classic Gorman cuts. 

MSFW12 Day 6 | Target

September 8, 2012

Today's Target runway show was very, well, Target, and I wasn't really expecting anything else. There were a few good pieces like this floral number and brightly coloured jeans, but overall it was exactly what you expect from Target. 

MSFW12 Day 5 | French Connection

September 7, 2012

It was French Connection's turn to take to the runway today on the 5th day of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Their spring/summer collections focused heavily on primary colours red, yellow and blue, with variations of each. There was also a strong sorbet pastel influence, and some key metallic and sequinned pieces. 

MSFW12 Day 4 | Sportscraft

September 6, 2012

Sportscraft launched their spring/summer collections on the runway today at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week with classic suits, skirts and shirts. The first couple of collection had a more casual feel with pink and red being the major theme throughout it, ending with a show stopping paisley shirt and pant. 

MSFW12 Day 3 | Review

September 5, 2012

Day 3 of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week saw fun and flirty brand Review take to the runway with their spring/summer collections. Each piece was very pastel and almost as girly as it can get. I wanted it all. There's nothing more flattering than a cinched in waist and a big flowy skirt. 

MSFW12 Day 2 | Wittner

September 4, 2012

Day 2 of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week exploded into action with the theatrical runway display from Wittner. With several dancers captivating the audience and many props featured throughout the show, the audience was certainly entertained. I walked away thinking "wow, that was weird." But definitely in a good way!

This season they have five looks.

#1 Neon Life

MSFW12 Day 1 | David Jones

September 3, 2012

Today was the official first day of the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and to kick it off, David Jones hosted a runway show at the Melbourne City Square to help everyone get prepared for the Spring Racing Season!

Nitin Sawhney

Sometimes it's good to just throw yourself into something without really knowing what you're getting yourself into, and this was definitely one of those situations. Nitin Sawhney exceeded all expectations and he and his band were breathtakingly talented. I'd never actually been exposed to his work before being offered tickets but it sounded like something I would enjoy and my gosh it was.
