The trend that's gone wild: Make it Personal.

A recent extract from Eden De Fleur Personalisation. A new obsession.  "My beautiful friend Olivia of Olympia Creative is such an inspiration and trend setter. I've loved her work since meeting her last year and so when she brought out her Monogrammed Leather Keyring - of course I had to have one. Extremely handy when you're running errands, arms are full and you can just dangle it on your pinky finger. You'll never loose your keys in your bag again!" ... Read more of Eden's post here

THE STYLE EDIT: WHAT I'M CURRENTLY COVETING

As far back as I can remember, fashion was a way to express myself. My mum tells me I used to get up each morning and choose my own outfit, laying it out on my bed from as young as three. As a teenager this evolved into my personal space, merchandising it on a regular basis. Now, as Graphic Designer, Visual Merchandiser and Stylist by trade, it's my passion putting outfits together, styling spaces and discovering products and pieces that light my eyes up. I'm a sucker for well designed products, packaging and pieces. In fact, I am known to purchase things for form over function - it's the way I've always been and the way it will always be,...

7 Favourite Looks from 2016

  Once a year concludes, it always has me reminiscing through old photos. How have I changed in a year, is my hair any different? has my style shifted? has my face changed? and this often leads to some new years resolutions - health wise, financially and also aesthetically. Some years I find I am quite pleased, and other years have me thinking why did my eyebrows look better in 2015 than they do now!? and I'm frantically scrolling through my iphone to book an appointment.  I am very fortunate to have been brought up by my beautiful Mum who always installed in me to hold onto things because 'it may come back into fashion' one day. In my younger years,...

A Holiday Escape with Zimmermann

Nicky and Simone Zimmermann are behind the Zimmermann label, two sisters who founded the Australian label doing us proud. Known for its high-fashion swimwear and resort wear with a focus on custom designed fabrics, delicate prints and a carefree, feminine and laid back aesthetic, season to season they don't disappoint and often exceed all expectations. How on earth do they do it?! Although they do a beautiful ready to wear collection, it is always their Swim & Resort that I look forward to each year. Filling our minds with wanderlust, shooting in the environment that inspired the collection the campaigns have been shot in the most exotic locations including but not limited to Mustique (a private island in the Caribbean),...

Olympia x Allure South Sea Pearls

I was delighted to get an invitation by Detail Marketing Communications to view the newest Allure South Sea Pearls collection in their Fremantle studio. The exquisite pearl collection beautifully styled amidst a pastel mantle of crystal, orchids and rose buds decorated by florist Anna Excell, the light streaming through the old character windows, with a champagne in one hand and fresh oysters in the other, we viewed the most drool-worthy array of earrings, necklaces and string pearls we have ever laid eyes on. At first, we admired from a far, however it wasn't long until the girls encouraged mum and I to try a few pieces on, and I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to guess which were...
