I always like to zoom in and have a peek at the details on the clothes
coming down the runway. Instead of scrutinizing I guess you could say I like picking out the subtleties that make a piece unique. Check out the drawstring pants, bare skin and the little black clutch which equals as massage tool/weapon.
This all started because of the exorbitant prices retailers expect us to pay for a pair of denim cutoffs. I refuse to pay more money than I would in buying a pair of long denim jeans because there's a significantly less amount of fabric used in making shorts. Hello, has anyone realized that they don't think that we notice this?So I went to a local op-shop and tried on a couple of jeans, found a pair that fit snug, paid 7 bucks for them, took them home and chopped the legs off. Hemming is recommended but I just rolled mine up to the desired length and ta da! Experiment with different colours, styles, distressed denim- you name it. I'm going to be wearing mine all summer.
It literally does, it stops the whole country and by that I obviously mean the Melbourne Cup. I have nothing to do with the racing industry whatsoever but I couldn't help but be glued to the television screen as well.
I always like to see the fashions celebs wear to racing events and I thought model Jennifer Hawkins (in Toni Maticevski) looked particularly smashing this year. How gorgeous is her headpiece? I have a huge soft spot for peacock feathers. Sorry for the small images, these were the only ones I could find where you could see her whole outfit so they'll have to make do.Source: Couriermail.com.au

Rearranged all my clothes yesterday and finally put my winter clothes in boxes. It hit a peak of 30 celsius today so I'm so not interested in wearing flannel and fleece anymore. Just a tank top and cutoff denim for me thanks.
I love the variation in colour, texture and patterns used in the above editorial. I know some people don't like a huge mumble jumble of everything in one go but I just love the whole thing.
