Julie White

i knew Julie White was Australian before even really knowing it, just from taking one look at the beautiful illustrative depictions of her native country’s flora. these prints can be found on limited edition clothing pieces and newly launched scarves on her website & online shop.

Bon

Bon just released a new website, online shop and lovely lookbook. oooooooh, those straw hats! hashtag straw hashtag hat hashtag summer hashtag shade hashtag cool. also how cute are these wax paper sacks? anyway, i’m digging it. see my previous posts about Bon here.

Lina Rennell

how is it that i only learned about Lina Rennell today? all i know is that i haven’t wanted a beanbag since i was in varsity, but now i sure do.

Reformation

every day i go online i think, this is it – there’s nothing new for me to discover. i know all the clothing designers, i have seen it all. nope. wrong. every day there’s something new-to-me. i was actually surprised i hadn’t come across Reformation before (pardon me Americans if i am…

The Woven Bag

i have had an overwhelming response to the beautiful woven Kenyan bags that i posted about a while ago. the good news is that if all goes to plan i will hopefully start selling them in September! but in the meantime, if you’re into woven bags, here’s a nice round up…

Young Frankk FW14

i really shouldn’t have to introduce Young Frankk to you by now. Christine Young’s jewellery line has been featured here countless times – and it is as beautiful as ever. this is her new FW14 collection, which you can shop here.

Jen Stillwell is a designer based in NYC who started her leather company All Hands when she was working on a ship, travelling around the world as a member of an artisan development fund aimed at promoting and supporting indigenous artisans. her pieces are SO SO SO beautiful. this one in particular…

Nancybird SS15

i can always count on the Australians to be on the same wavelength as us. weather wise, at least. i often get emails from overseas people who then round off with, “hope you’re enjoying the summer!” well it’s winter here, actually. hope you’re enjoying your summer, though! the Aussies and…

Bone Couture

Anna Raimondo of Smith Jewellery actually studied at university at the same time as me, and consequently we’d often pass each other in the hallways since the graphic and jewellery design students all worked in the same building. i always envied the jewellery designers, who were basically making art out of jewellery. what…

The ASOS Dress

i have a very bizarro habit of browsing ASOS for dresses… often. i don’t know what it is, probably because i like to be overly prepare for things (eg buying a new outfit for a wedding that’s 6 months away, or getting my summer dresses now while it’s still raining). so, may as…

Alexandra Grecco Bridal

i have been following Alexandra Grecco’s career since i posted about her waaaaaaaaaaay back in 2010 when she was still selling her wares on Etsy. she still has her own line, but just launched a beautiful bridal collection which you can shop here.

Rebecca Gladstone

i’ve always been much more of a gold jewellery kinda girl myself, but these silver pieces by Rebecca Gladstone are lovely – especially modelled on this blonde girl with the cool haircut. you can buy online at her website or etsy shop.

90s Fashion Moments

a friend and i were chatting the other day and she was telling me about how she’d recently gone to visit a local vintage market and most of the sellers were young girls – and all their wares were from the 90s. that made us chuckle because, well, we wore…
