Plenty of ruffles and pleats



I am enjoying the high impact look for autumn. However, I am partial to a little bit of ultra feminine ruffles and pleats. I would love to incorporate the femininity of these images into my wardrobe with a slightly harder edge (Armour jewellery perhaps?)
It would be lovely to float around like this though.

Memoirs of a Geisha- Visual Tribute



"She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret"

Monday Madness

Kate Moss and Kate Winslet - I stumbled across this site the other day that enables you to morph celebrities images together. Anyway, while I should have been doing something productive like studying. I decided instead to make this little morph thing of Kate Winslet and Kate Moss. What do you think?

All alone in space and time






Film - Picnic at Hanging Rock
Directed by Peter Weir
What do you get when you combine the year 1900, a boarding school, a picnic, and a large rock?
- A strange and ethereal film, laced with plenty of beautiful imagery (Think moody sun drenched images). Definitely a visual feast.

Crazy Beautiful



I love reading magazines. In fact, I used stop by the Town Hall Newsagency almost every morning while on my way to work at my first job. It became a bit of a novelty for my work mate's to see me standing there, engrossed in "Elle" or "Harper's" - It had such a great collection, how could I not? Well anyway, I must admit that I miss my Aussie mags now that I am away from the land down under. I find my self scouring the shelves trying to find one. To be honest I am little annoyed that I am missing out on the new weekly fashion mag Grazia. (I like to stress the important stuff you know). Anyway, the above image is from the latest issue of Vogue Australia. If you see it let me know :)

The Award


I received the Brilliant Weblog Award from the lovely Betsey of Una Bella Vita A Beautiful life.
I discovered her blog not too long ago and it has already become one of my favourites. I liken it too a cosy bookshop where you are introduced to beautiful things and reintroduced to old ones.

I must admit that I was very excited to receive my first award.I have discovered so many wonderful blogs and would like to share it with these lovely ones.

Kelly watch the stars***** Watch the stars



Will you be wearing a necklace this autumn (fall)? If so, will it be a long elegant chain with a vintage pendant or perhaps some chunky gold chains reminiscent of Givenchy?
Either way, I think the humble necklace is going to be a bit of a big deal during the cooler months.

The look

I am currently liking Liv's new hair. Do you think it has the potential to take over from the Aggy or Pob? I know that some of you may think I am crazy for asking this, but I think this could become a new trend.
