The ethereal paintings of Rupert Bunny create the most dreamy atmosphere, filled with the romantic delights of swans, flowers and sleep. Ideally this is how I would like to spend the rest of my life, sleeping in a bed of flowers wearing a couture gown while graceful swans swim nearby.
Charlotte Olympia's cruise 14 collection is so sweet it's making me hungry! Olympia's homage to Archie mag and 50's teen americana is too dreamy, with candy heart clutches and coke bottle shaped heels appealing to both the Bettys and Veronicas.
A few weeks ago the lovely Kelsey Genna surprisingly contact me for an interview and photoshoot for her new active wear line .
To say it was exciting was an understatement!
It was a dream! The clothes were gorgeous, ranging from floral crop tops to leopard leggings and we ended up spending the afternoon visiting Lady Petrova and strolling around the NGV, so basically it was the best day ever!
The wonderful Sarah Pannell took the photos at my favourite place Madame Brussels, which is this kitsch rooftop bar where the waiters wear 60's tennis outfits and fake grass lines the floor.
I finally saw Populaire last Friday and it was so dreamy!
It's about a French country girl named Rose Pamphyle who gets hired as a secretary by Louis Échardon the condition that she wins a typewriting competition. With her extraordinary speed at typing Louis trains her to become the fastest type-writer in the world. It's so gorgeous you'll have to see it. The film came out in 2012 so it should be easy to find, but being in Australia it only just came here.
Anyway, lets just admire it's prettiness for a second.
It's just so lovely and perfect in every way.
It's french, late 50's,funny, romantic and predominantly pink.
The opening credits were particularly delightful in a Saul Bass inspired style. Every moment was just so beautiful!
Now I'm going to go and buy a pink typewriter, wear 50's dresses and speak french all day long. My ideal life.
My Mum helps out at an opshop a few days a week, so she is always coming home with interesting nick nacks and stuff. I don't think she has ever been there and not left empty handed! Although some stuff she grabs is questionable others are gold, such as today's latest find.
It's a retro geometric jumpsuit! Yes those are pants! and they are the best pants ever!
I can't wait to lounge around in summer wearing my brezzy jumpsuit while listening to The Mamas & the Papas, instead of wearing sweatpants whilst sitting in bed wasting time on Buzzfeed and listening to Talk Dirty on repeat, which I am currently doing.
