In Need of Inspiration

It has been a long time between posts.  I have started updating my Australian Designers Page again and always want to help promote young up and coming designers so feel free to send me a message as even without me doing anything on there the hits and clicks and growing all the time.  Anyway I needed some inspiration so here is my start of some things I found I loved and hope you like them too.

Casual Weekend

It’s fashion week frenzy at the moment and although I am sure my invitations may still be coming in the mail (forever an optimist) I love scouting the street style and adapting into what we can all wear and I don’t know about you but I am not wearing those $1000 stilettos to watch my kids play sport.  So here is my take on street style brought into weekend wear for the fashionista.  Go from the park to lunch with girls easily minus the ugg boots, trackies and men’s jumper.  Go chic and still be comfortable.

Summer 2014 Trend

Whilst I sit here by my fire, it’s hard to contemplate Summer Trends. So I dream of our white sandy beaches, hot summer nights by the pool and all the great things that we associate with Summer.  So just to give you a taste of what’s to come I start with the must have bikini’s and summer dress.  Inspiration is drawn from the 50’s and 60’s with defining waists and femininity key.  Prints are still strong along side the current monochrome trend.  Get back to Glamour with these gorgeous items.

New Aussie Swimwear

Goldfish Swimwear has been a well kept secret of the locals since it’s inception 3 years ago.  This year marks Goldfish’s launch in the retail sector and with the online store to be launched in the next few weeks expect to see this label at your most loved beaches.  Sydney Fashion Blogger has been seen wearing the Amazon print at our famous Bondi Beach.

What makes Goldfish different.  Well I can categorically say that it is everything you want when shopping for a bikini.  Your choice of styles for every body shape, prints that all have a story behind them and quality Italian fabrics.  Best of all this 2013/14 collection will be priced affordably so great quality and great prices will go hand in hand.

To purchase Goldfish Swimwear you can check out Swimwear Galore or whilst waiting for the on line store you can email info@goldfishswimwear.com with your details.  Here is a sneak peek at the new collection.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia

mbfwa logo

In one week Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia starts and as a writer/blogger and fashion lover this means heaven. It also allows fashionistas to dress, be seen and let’s face it judge what everyone else is wearing.  Photographers are out and about snapping the latest street looks and the young bloggers trying to get in their eye so they can get on their blogs.  I love to people watch and observing the “fashion behaviour” is fabulous.  Yes I often get caught up in the whole unreal world but it is only for a week and then I come back to reality with sore feet.  There is a change of location this year, I will definitely miss the back drop of Sydney Harbour now we are going for a more urban look at The Carriageworks.  I reserve my judgement until I have experienced.

Check out my Australian Designers List (a work in progress) to see some of the great Australian designers that will be at MBFWA.

Here are the finalists that you can see and help support amazing emerging Australian talent.

Swimwear for the Man

Changing the States of Play this summer:
The humble Aussie board short gets a liberal dose of European cool

Australia’s newest beach fashion brand, States of Play, was conceived on a rocky cliff top overlooking Portofino as husband and wife design team, Sonja and Richard Skelton, debated the relative merits of Australian board shorts and tailored European swim shorts.

Which ones are your favourite?  In my house it’s the subs and the islands.

 Click Here or go to http://www.statesofplay.com.

“The label, States of Play, combines carefree Australian style with confident, modern European fashion. Perfect for well-travelled, sun-loving individuals, the 15 print designs in the new Spring Summer 2012 Collection boast summer bright colours and cheeky, wearable patterns guaranteed to set you apart from the surfing crowd.

With colour, humour and detail, the States of Play range promises to move Australian men’s swimwear out of the billabong and into the fashion conscious world of the international jet setter, who is equally as comfortable in a tent in Kenya as on a yacht in the Whitsundays.

Bold, confident and colourful prints are created alongside leading Australian fabric designers and illustrators then digitally sublimated onto the highest-grade polyester, peach skin, suede microfiber available.

Tailoring is casual yet detailed and cheeky designs such as a seahorse print on an orange and pink striped background look great with a tan and could easily take you from beach to bar in an instant.

A tanker print makes great use of colour blocks and adds something different to your standard boardies flower print or business shirt fabric masquerading as beachwear.

States of Play board shorts are lined with a fine, quick-dry mesh for comfortable wear all day long – just perfect for having fun in the sun this summer.

Trends for 2013




Another year has gone and the new year begins.  What can we expect to be buying for the 2013 seasons.  In the northern hemisphere the Spring 2013 is all about the belted floral dress for workwear. The length is midi or knee, appropriate for the work place.  Here in Australia we can adapt the trends for our current Summer season leading into Autumn.

A must have accessory for the 2013 season is the document clutch to hold your gadets and look sensational.
