I just had the most ridiculously foodie day. Almost as ridiculous as this weather! One minute its warm and sunny, then next its bucketing down and storming! Make up your mind Melbourne!
Anyway, I thought I should share my epicurean moments from the day!

The day started with my usual breakfast very much inspired by this

Then I hopped off to Prahran for my current favourite salad at St Edmonds . Followed by a lazy cup of tea and the crossword (indulging in my Nanna tendencies).

I then had to sample one of Mister Nice Guys cupcakes. Lets call it market research for my birthday cake!

And finally a stop at Spud Bar for dinner. Seriously satisfying day of eating!

givenchy pre fall 2013

The culmination of cow print and leather usually has me thinking of dukes-of-hazard-esque cow girls and those mexican throws you find hanging on the backs of sofas and combi vans. However in Givenchy's pre-fall venture-of-sorts, raw cow hide is sophisticatedly prim.
The limited colour palate and geometric patterns makes for an edgy, masculine silhouetted collection. Paired with equally masculine brogues the looks steer almost too closely to a male's collection. I say almost because the subtle hints of feminism introduced by the high leg split skirts and suggestion of a waistline are really its saving grace.

I am really enthralled by this collection. It brings together everything I feel is relevant in modern dressing right now. Simple lines, limited colours and a hint of androgyny. Even the way the collection melds into night attire is exciting, made even more so by the ever-changing backdrop.

I know it is a bit of an image overload, but I seriously couldn't justifying leaving out any of the looks. It somehow ruins the story if you don't look at this collection in its entirity.

Givenchy Pre Fall 2013

My two favorite looks by far

The ruffles and reef sandals here are so great!

serial re-blogger

Yes I admit, I am a serial re-blogger. One look at my tumblr is enough to accuse me of such a crime, but alas I am not ashamed.

The fact is however, this Ksubi lookbook is darn right fab, and worthy of a thousand re-blogs if not more. Montana Cox is one serious babe, and Ksubi is just down-right happn'in. I am dying inside right now and I bet you are too.
