layer upon layer of grey on sheer on silver on sparkle ...magic!

life with bird is an australian label. their cuts often look complicated on the hanger, but look incredibly simple and effortless when they are on. clothes are not meant for hangers afterall.


secrets of life

Oscar Wilde was easily the first modern pop star, with a quotable flair for epigrams and a lust for the taboo. This is entertaining enough, but couple this with a rare and breathtaking talent, and you instantly have the sexiest genius in history. (s-k-i-r)

nothing can cure the soul but the senses



reasoned philosophy and ordered principles

have been neglectful of fashion lately...
like anything that you deprive yourself of for long enough, shoes, bags (ps1 be mine forever) and clothes are currently playing on my mind a little more than is healthy!

2 favourite *affordable* brands at present are bec and bridge (great simple silk party dresses by talented aussie duo)...if you can move past the styling on the site, there are many gems to be found. my feelings are they are best worn with minimal makeup, a go anywhere attitude, and without; a curling iron/bangles/gladiators.

and secondly filippa K. the new season is like a cross between chuck bass, stephan schneider, and country road.

one reason i love filippa K is that right now in 09, i have in heavy rotation, a pair of her black elasticated-ankle 'pyjama pants' circa 2004, five years old and still so wearable...with grey cotton singlets for day/ and with silk and jewellery for night.


the picture was still there

there's a switch that gets hit
and it all stops making sense
and in the middle of drinks
maybe the fifth or the sixth
i'm completely alone at a table of friends
i feel nothing for them

beautiful things
