Common Lily and Flowers

I have a big girl crush on Lily Allen. Love the fringe, and I think the 50s prom, green satin dress she wears in this clip with Common, is just gorgeous and suits her curves. She really does have Brandon. He is so dorky cute in the Fashion TV interview. Can't believe that it is only two weeks to go to the Killers concert in Sydney, so excited. And who knew Ronnie was starting a denim label...mmmm, maybe he should stock birdmotel!

What I am loving now...


Erin seen in UK Elle Decoration
I adore Erin's dreamy, pretty, little-girl-lost aesthetic. She has definitely become one of my favourite designers, and her latest collection at New York Fashion Week was so sweetly simple but ecletic. I love this washed silk dress the best: the slightly cropped blouson sleeves, the soft waist and the white 50s inspired geek-chic glasses!

I can't get enough of big blocks of bright colours...and combining slightly off-key colours, like chartreuse with aquamarine, hot pink with watermelon, or violet with tangerine. I'm really excited about wearing in-your-face colour this summer, but even more excited that it will be sticking around as a major trend for winter next year.


I didn't particularly love Miranda July's feature film Me and You and Everyone We Know, but I totally dig her quirky, vintage geek-girl style. Plus, I loved this short film called Are You The Favourite Person of Anybody? written by her. So, when I heard she had written a collection of short stories called no one belongs here more than you, I thought it would be worth a read. So far it has made me sad, and also laugh out loud. Highly recommended.

I first saw the film clip for the song Lazy Eye by the Silversun Pickups about a month ago on Rage, and I just couldn't get the riff out of my head. Their whole CD is fab, so I was totally bummed I missed their gig here in Sydney.


Oh joy! Apparently I shrieked out loud when I saw the latest copy of Lula on the newsagent shelves yesterday. Stunning and inspirational as always, it heavily features one of my style icons Kirsten Dunst in some pretty amazing pictures.
