As my regular readers would know i’ve been M.I.A of late. Having moved back to Sydney Australia from New York it’s taken me five weeks to get back into the swing of things. Just to give you a quick update i’m working on samples for my accessories and clothing range as well as managing a restaurant and most recently appointed the N.S.W rep for Audio Threads. As you can see i have my hands full but the time is now and i’ll sleep when i’m dead!!
Since i’ve been back in Sydney it’s hard for me not to make comparisons with New York fashion and i have to say we are definately on top of the game. Sydney has come along way over the past ten years in fashion related fields and you only have to look on the streets to see that we definately hold our own. In the next few weeks i’ll be hitting the streets with my camera capturing the style and essence of Sydney fashion….so keep an eye out!!

Spring is just around the corner i can literally smell it…. and it couldn’t come any sooner. The stores are already filled with color and gone are the sweaters and winter coats! From left to right i see color, thigh skimming dresses, skirts and did i mention color? The key to looking fabulous this spring is accessorizing your outfit with loud and bold earrings, neck pieces and bangles. Step into spring with a new attitude and embrace the exciting shapes and lines on the racks this season. Here are some looks from BCBGMAXAZRIA to inspire you and remember don’t just look good, look great and strut like you’ve never strut before ladies!!
Don’t wait for spring to roll around to let your hair loose and be flirty with floral. An emerging trend is pretty flower hair clips that are bound to give you a glow and make heads turn. Whether you choose a classic rose, orchid or a dahlia give your day or evening out fit that extra oomph by adorning a flower in your hair. Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders have long worn these and depending on which side you wear them determines your marital status.
Typically i never used to wear any accessories in my hair but as soon as i wear a flower it seems my whole personality changes and i smile a whole lot more. Its simple don’t over accessorize keep it simple and wear a classic dress or ensemble, add a flower clip and voila……simplistic glam! You’ll find celebrities like Gwen Stefani and Dita Von Teese rocking this look from time to time.
Whilst surfing the internet i found a great website www.latebloomerboutique.com which has a beautiful range of hair clips. Locally you can find some at Mandee’s or Forever 21 and many other great little boutiques in New York. I hope to see many of you looking pretty as a flower this spring 🙂
My friend snapped these four men a few days ago in downtown nyc…..my first thought Kid ‘n’ Play are back!!! Then reality set in and i was thinking oh my goodness what were they thinking….only in New York. Regardless whether i think these men are stuck in a time warp or redefining fashion on their own terms, i love their attitude and i embrace their unique style.
