I always feel so awkward when it comes to taking photos of what I wear. On other blogs, outfit posts are always so artistic/modelesque/they have their own personal camera man to follow them around during the day. However, I get extremely embarrassed getting my picture taken. I either pull a ridiculous face, laugh, have my face hidden or am looking in the other direction instead of pouting into the camera lens.
I admire people that have that natural photographic look..I don't think that's the word, maybe camera confidence... but I just can't take myself too seriously to pout and pose. I much rather be the person behind the camera :)

I had the pleasure of meeting stylist and former Rachel Zoe assistant Brad Goreski at the Marc Jacobs after party last year. He was insanely sweet, fun, charming and a great dancer.
He definitely knows how to rock strong colour blocking and a pair of Prada espadrilles...need to go get myself a pair of those..
With all this time on my hands between working in retail and job hunting, I've been thinking about knitwear and the massive gap in the market over here. I have not seen a wide range of nice, good quality, Australian designed knits...but then again maybe I'm not looking in the right places. You see the cardigans and the thin skintight unflattering long sleeve basics, but no proper, good fitted, soft, comfortable sweaters.
I've been researching into knitting factories and I'm thinking about maybe doing a 5-10 piece knitwear range using Australian Merino Wool. Its economical, has natural benefits such as comfort, easy care, has naturally high UV protection, and also I'd be supporting our farmers and the Aus economy.
Although I still need to suss out prices...I've heard it's quite pricey to produce a knit. Maybe I can learn how to hand knit a sweater myself...it can't be that hard right...?
CFDA winner Prabal Gurung and Rye Rye, the most popular girl in music right now (I never heard of her before reading the article on Nylon) have teamed up to produce a video teaser of his Resort 2012 Collection.
Yup. My life is officially complete. I can now die a happy fashion graduate.
But seriously. It was meant to be! A few days ago I was googling like crazy trying to find an online shop to purchase a Maison Michel creation. I was desperate for this hat.
It never occurred to me to just look up their stores and stockists on their website because I just assumed that being in Australia, who on earth would stock these beautifully crafted Parisian hats?!
Luckily I did, and found that there is in fact a little boutique called Christine tucked away on Flinders Lane in the City that stock their collection each season. Andddd what's even better is that the hat that I had my heart set on was ON SALE! Told you it was meant to be.
