Maurie & Eve

Poached from Rich Girls, this brand is one of those little gems that has popped up from down under and these brands seem to really excite me. What is it with Aussie brands? Recently they seem to be taking over, and i love it.
With just four seasons under their belt, here is their Autumn 12 Collection, the soft, pastel colours and prints are beautiful. For more info visit Maurie & Eve

I was looking through old posts and i haven't uploaded many photo's i have taken myself recently. This must change and whilst i am busy at home at the moment as soon as i get back to oxford i am sure i will find some inspiring subjects to snap and upload... Which reminds me...

For all you music heads out there pop to Oxford 2nd Feb for another ZOO at Carbon night, where me, resident photographer... (wow that makes me feel important) will be snapping and bopping away to some 'BANGERS' from the likes of Alphabet pony, Vitamin P, AJAXX and Teknikal, who are all very talented DJ's.

You know you don't want to miss out!

It's an Insight...

Here are some photos from Insight Autumn 2012 Lookbook. I absolutely love this brand and don't think it gets enough praise, especially the women's clothing, i have written a few times about the brand and i am back to show the incredible Autumn collection, unfortunately the women's clothing isn't as accessible in the UK as i would like it to be but perhaps that gives it uniqueness and individuality, saying that ASOS seems to be stocking more and more including the bikini's which never pass through my net and always end up in my basket, like the one i have my eye on at the moment but i keep reminding myself it is only January.

 Insight51 has its origins as a surf label and has become increasingly fashion lead. Although they belong in a surf heritage they encompass everything from surf, skate, art, music, fashion and popular culture. Insight doesn't follow the crowd they lead it.

SS12 Wishlist

This is the first of many SS12 wish lists, starting with my sports-inspired wishlist. I haven't been very adventurous with my designers but Alexander Wang's Spring Summer collection is dream-worthy and those Isabel Marant betty sneakers should be on my feet in two weeks... YAY.

From Left-to-Right 

  • Isabel Marant Betty suede sneakers
  •  Alexander Wang Cropped wool-blend jacquard sweater 
  • Alexander Wang Black Sportive Pants 
  • Alexander Wang 'Marion' Mini Flap Bag
  • Maison Martin Margiela Set of four rose gold-plated knuckledusters

Song of Style

I like a lot of clothes don't get me wrong but i rarely see an outfit that i really, i mean really like, there are always elements i think i could tweek but Aimee from Song of style nailed it for me in these street style shots. I think outfit posts are not only about the girl and the outfit but also the background/setting and the quality of the photos, when they are all in harmony some great shots are created.
I have only discovered her blog in the last few days and am totally hooked, her style is great and she owns some very envious items of clothing.

Out come the scissors and knife.

She really does sell those clothes...

Pastel Fashion

After my friend Amber from Straight from the Paige recently  wrote about Pastel tones being a big SS12 trend i hasten to highlight on the topic. Pastel tones have always been a favourite of mine when it comes to nail varnish, baby blue, mint green, pale yellow are shades i adore but usually in the summer when my hands sport a golden tan. As the days are very cold at the moment  and i am not a fan of too much colour in the winter, the only pastel shade i have been wearing is my softer than soft Angora Topshop Boutique dip dyed jumper, (which happens to malt everywhere i go including whatever i wear underneath!!)

Here are some pastel shades straight from the catwalk from left to right: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ralph Lauren and Prada.

These are some pastel photos that are inspiring me, as i anticipate the approach of spring.

Things on my pastel fashion wishlist;

  • Peach Lipstick, actually any of these shades...

  • Some new Pastel nail colours...
These are 20% off at Asos at the moment!
  • I would LOVE a pastel coloured clutch, mint would be lovely thank you
  • I wouldn't mind some pastel hair either

So all pastel-ed out. Bring on Spring!

Lenni Vintage

So a while ago i discovered Lenni Vintage on facebook, it is an Australian based brand that is best known for customising denim along with shorts, kimono's and other vintage items. 

I am unsure whether it is run by one or two girls but there are two blogs, one updated with the new items to buy Lenni Denim and one called Enjoy the Silence which is FULL of inspiring photos. 

They do ship worldwide so yes us Brits can have in on the action. I am desperate for a pair of the denim shorts but they do sell out quite quickly so you have to be in there fast. 

This week they are opening an Online Store so it will be easier to see what items are available and how to purchase them. BRING IT ON!

These have to be my favourite.
