bingle my buttons

I feel so internet savvy scheduling all these posts for when i'm away. How on top of things am I???
I mean really, the few people who actually tune into this blog should feel very loved right now.

I have recently come to the conclusion that Lara Bingle is an absolute babe. I posted this recently on tumblr...pretty much sums up my thoughts on the bingle bottom....

um so i am not sure why not everyone can see it, but lara bingle is an absolute babe.i actually am in love with… her hair, her face, her clothes, her hairrrrrrr, her clothesss, her facccccce, her voice, her smileeeeeeeherrrrrrrrrrrrrr in bloody freakin general.lara bingle = b.a.b.e
I guess this realisation has come to the forfront simultaneously with her tv show airing. Having said that, I have always had a little soft spot for Lara, simply because of her amazing wardrobe and sensational beauty.
Watching the show has made me love her even more. She seems so down-to-earth and hard working. I love how normal and Aussie Lara and her family is, and how she doesn't take herself at all seriously.

She is pretty much topping my "coolest people" list at the moment...

resort '13 wrap up

I feel like the resort collections this season show a lot of relevance to melbourne winter. it is not often that melbourne weather patterns, in all their waves of shivery/warming glory coincide with what the models are wearing on the catwalks half way around the world.

So, the fact that we winter dwellers can draw inspiration direct from the european, american and british design houses is quite a novelty, and well, quite frankly damn exciting. 

 Here is a wrap-up of my favourite collections (I am becoming more and more of a fan of the resort collections for their absolute wearability) and the key themes and ideas I will be drawing upon for inspiration when dressing this winter.

box-like shaping, dropped hemlines, 'long and lean' accentuated by limp hair-dos, pale blue, cream and white

insipid colour palettes, dark lip colour, parted hair, black vs. ballet tones, wearing colours that 'don't suit'
