"extraordinary in the ordinary"

I am one of those people that love to splurge on designer things when I get the chance (and have the $$!) - yet I somehow always find myself putting these beautiful creations in a safe place in my wardrobe and mostly... well... look at it. When it comes down to getting dressed in the morning, I always go for the comfy stuff.

I'm a sucker for basics.

In the week I got the chance to head over to Staple the Label HQ - and had the pleasure of meeting Victoria Bolton, one half of fashion label Staple - designers of modern and sophisticated, yet simple, pieces perfect for your travel wardrobe. And when I say perfect, I mean perfect. Vic talked me through every piece of the two sister collections 'Staple by Staple' (the basics) and 'Shanghai Nights' - which are basically the slighty more edgier wonders that you can team back with your basics.

There was not one thing in either collections that I didn't L O V E - Staple has always appealed to me but I have to confess that I haven't owned a piece before this day. Now there is no going back. The collections drop in the coming month - so hold on to your cashola and invest in something that you actually WILL wear everyday. And let's face it - you can't go wrong with a collection shot on Rachel Rutt.

I got a package from my mumma last week - and I'm wearing all of it's content. Call me bias, as you know I'm a huge fan of creative director and founder Elin Kling, but these clothes are by far the most comfortable things I've ever worn. Even the shoes (!)

Follow Nowhere on Facebook and you'll see that they are scheming world-domination for their new range - so we sad, sad people down under can finally get these beautiful things delivered right to our door. Yes.

The latest lookbook from Watson x Watson

There is nothing in this lookbook that is short of perfection. I've just recently discovered the brand but have fallen head over heels in love with their use of print, shape and simplicity. Those pants...!

Better late than never, but here is a little sneak peek from last week, when I was working with Toni & Guy on an exciting new project. Can't reveal too much just yet, but if you hashtag #hairmeetwardrobe on Twitter you might just find out a little bit more. This was one of the best shoots I've been on in a while, everyone was so professional and I had so much fun.

Park Avenue

Finally posting my little visit to the picturesque show room of the lovely girls at Park Avenue PR - where I disappeared in a wonderful world of Watson x Watson, L'Avion, Coco Ribbon, Pratten, Sophi Odling, Sterling & Hyde and Tara Lawson to name a few.

I particularly fell for the Pratten Eel Skin Wallets CLICK (yes, eel skin... which is the softest ever) - presented in an array of colours that just made me want them all. At once. Watson x Watson blew me away with their lookbook (post to come) -and the clothes are even more divine in person, in particular the Escher Print Pants (coming soon) and the Jimmy Flat Boot.

And of course L'Avion, the silk scarves that you just can't go past. If you haven't already done so, this is the last week to vote for your favourite in the L'Avion blogger competition (here) - and you might just bring home a few L'Avion things yourself.

So these pants - have got me dancing on the inside. They are a bit of a head-turner, but at least eyes are fixed on the pants rather than anything else, and - get this - they are long enough. In my world jeans that are long enough are just about as rare as decently priced coffee in Double Bay. There is something about a good fitting pair of printed pants that is so damn appealing.

Hats off to Bettina Liano for succeeding in this fine art.
