In With The Old

Here’s a little preview of what I’m working on tonight (to follow up on this post).  It’s a shoot I did for a local vintage boutique that’s opening up soon, with the always lovely, Chantelle.

It was another hard day at the office for me. This whole gig of trying on beautiful clothes and working with extremely fun photographers is really difficult sometimes. In case you didn't catch on - I'm being sarcastic :)

Awhile back I modelled a series of vintage outfits for photographer Michelle Belsky. The shoot was styled and photographed in studio. Pieces included fitted blazers with high shoulder pads, Parisian silk dresses and high-waisted pleated pants to name a few.

I adore wearing vintage pieces in my daily wardrobe. I often mix and match vintage and new clothing to create an original outfit. The materials are rich and high quality and I can rest assured I will never show up to an event with the same outfit as anyone else.

Viva la vintage!

P.S. Thank you for all the "likes" this received on Tumblr.


Real Men Wear Pink

They're lean and mean. They're rough and tough. They're most likely bruised and battered. And they come ready for battle dressed in pink.

Years ago when the president of Stade Francais Paris was trying to promote his rugby team, he looked to the fashion world for help. Max Guazzini wanted to create identifiable jerseys and some say use new uniforms to boost ticket sales. He first picked three lightening flashes which are now the club emblem and soon after opted for Barbie/bubblegum pink coloured uniforms for his burly and sweaty players to sport.

What better way to cause a little chatter in the macho rugby league than have his team's away uniforms in the rarest colour for any sportsman to wear - pink?

That year the team sold more than 20, 000 replica jerseys and obviously got a lot of attention by media and fans alike. The following year Guazzini had fashion designer, Kenzo, create another pink jersey. I guess real men aren't afraid to wear pink...


I'm Yours

It's Tuesday and if you haven't smiled yet, then let this rising star serenade you via YouTube. He may not know many of the words (OK he doesn't know ANY of the words), but his cuteness and facial expressions make up for it. He surprisingly keeps a good pitch though.

And people wonder why I want Asian babies one day...


Dare to be Different

If we all looked the same, dressed the same, thought the same and even blogged the same the world would be such a boring place, don't you think? So cut out the monotony and spice things up a bit gypsies. Do something out of the ordinary today and everyday.

Happy Monday to all my devoted readers!






Flower Power

Holy Begonia! I am really ready for spring now that I saw Kelsey Genna's latest collection titled Begonia House. It's fun, flirty and chock-full of floral details. Can you believe the designer is only 19 years old?

The dresses would be the perfect thing to slip into (when the weather heats up of course) that will have you smiling the rest of the day. But, I must admit it's the high-waisted dusty rose pants with the over sized flower accent that are my favourite. Lately I've been wearing lots of vintage high-waisted pants passed down from my mother. They are extremely comfortable because of the extra room around the hips yet they give a really polished and high fashion look with pleating and tapered legs. I always pair mine with heels so my legs seem never ending!

Enjoy this wonderful collection from New Zealand.
