Yasmin Le Bon Down Under

I was a huge fan of the real 'Supermodels' of the 90's: Claudia, Christy, Linda & Naomi. In fact, I still have in my possession two magazines titled 'Supermodels' dating back to 1993 or so (gee, 'saying this aloud' makes me feel so old). Amongst these Supermodels were also Kate Moss, Yasmeen Ghauri and Yasmin Le Bon (and so many others).

Yasmin shows us all she's still got it:

Happy (Belated) Birthday to Lil J - aka Brigadeirozinha

It is mindblowing how time flies...

Twelve months ago (and two weeks - I am very late in posting this) Lil J arrived in this world, turning it upside down (in a good yet crazy way).

These Melissa by Vivienne Westwood shoes are a present from my sister, aren't they too gorgeous for words?

Of course I made brigadeiros...and beijinhos de côco (the coconut/white ones)

It was a cupcake and tea party theme

So I made cupcakes, of course!

My sister painted this as a birthday present (in addition to those cute shoes) for Lil J
A M A Z I N G!

When I saw this skirt almost a year ago, it was too cute to resist, I kept it all this time waiting for her to fit into it, she wore it to her birthday party...

My aunt made the giant cupcake at the top - isn't it precious?
The white cake is my wedding cake - yes, I kept what wasn't eaten in my freezer (although being fruitcake I could have kept it outdoors)

And it was over all too soon...

Lover - 10 years in the Making

Last month I posted a video showcasing Lover's latest ballet-inspired collection, and today I saw this video, slightly retrospective, and the designing duo behind the Lover label share shares what went into creating their ultimate collection:

Street Style at RAFW SS'11 - Longer Lengths


Wide-leg pants have gone even wider, time to pull out those palazzo pants out of the wardrobe:

Love this outfit! The polkadots, the navy blue, the silhouette and simple accessories.

Love orange...

And nude too.

Skirts and Dresses

Absolutely adore this outfit, and somehow, Nicole even manages to pull off those white socks!

This pleated vintage dresses is just brilliant, love the orange and colour blocking.

Maxi tartan skirt! Hard to pull off, but this girl does it effortlessly

Sheer but long for designer Gail Sorronda

Street Style at RAFW SS'11 - Stripes

Nautical stripes weren't just a hit in the SS'11 and FW'11 (New York, London, Milan and Paris) Fashion Weeks. They were represented well here Down Under during RAFW:

Peeking under a slouchy knit

Worn by the beautiful Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage, who teamed it splendidly with glorious colour (and again, further below)

How beautiful does the navy look with that rusty tan? Love that clutch!

Bold statement - not for the faint-hearted
