thinking of fall

I can't believe it's Easter long weekend and that Fashion Week is right around the corner! It's only just starting to get cool but I'm very much set on dressing for Autumn. My BRVTVS bar earrings and cuff arrived and I'm loving them with just a simple grey sweater and denim, maybe paired with that Dress Up trench coat when it's a little colder... As for the Phillip Lim and Carven, a girl can dream, right!?

back to class with zimmermann

Last Tuesday, Hannah and I attended Zimmerman's SS 13.14 presentation for their new collection, class of 2013. There were fresh juices, quiches and sandwiches from Kitchen by Mike, beautiful flowers and amazing accessories a-plenty. Pretty excited that the leopard clutch made it home with me! I've got my eye on some of the other leopard print pieces as well as those chunky gold necklaces too. Thanks for having us Zimmermann!

Love Phillip Lim's play with denim patchwork and leopard print, and what could be better than a simple black dress with Araks lingerie.

& other stories

& Other Stories has been one of the main topic of conversation between Hannah and I for the past few weeks. As a new addition to the H&M family (and you already know how much I love COS) I had a feeling I would love this, but it was the social media leading up to the launch that really got me. I, along with many others, was checking their tumblr daily as they released new sneak peeks of the collection as well as behind-the-scenes videos and making-ofs (their packaging is superb!). The only thing is that they don't ship ship to Australia at the moment, but in the meantime looking through the collection in its entirety and making a dream wishlist is good enough!

Still just love all of these images.

can't live without

"Can't live without", Elle Denmark March 2013

Another amazing editorial from Elle Denmark featuring a few favourite essentials. I definitely always need to have good leather pieces in my wardrobe alongside classic stripes, denim and sweaters. The only thing missing at the moment it seems is a great varsity jacket. I found a few nice options in New York but I'm still waiting for that perfect one to come along!
