On to a Goot thing

For me, Josh Goot has sat comfortably at the top of Australian fashion, with his sleek tailoring and bold use of prints keeping us constantly interested and intriged as to how his brand will evolve.

These shots by Oyster magazine will no doubt further cement his AW'12 collection into every Australian fashion magazine round the country.
Better start saving those pennies!

white noise

There's one trend I'm really keen to try this summer...which just so happens to be one of the hardest to pull off.

White on white

Done well, it looks so chic and elegant, like you've just stepped off a yatch in the South of France
Done badly, and it looks like you missed your 80s moment in the sun

I camera phone snapped this image from the Madison magazine diary, of Elise Taylor...the styling in this pic is exactly what I want to emulate.

It also doesnt help my cause that I'm not too good at keeping my whites white, but it's a risk im willing to take.
Style shots to follow!

Bare Essentials

image: intothegloss

This post will revolve around two of my favourite things at the moment: Lily Aldridge and pulling off the 'make-up free' look.

Lily, seen above with her sister Ruby, has joined my list of girl crushes. Her flawless complexion, exotic features and sunny disposition makes her a welcome addition to the model circuit.

And it's her beautiful, make-up free skin that leads me to my second goal- perfecting clear skin, that which is without a lick of make-up.

My goal at the moment is to prepare my skin for my trip to bali and the upcoming summer, so that all I may need is a sweep of mascara and a lick of lipstick. It's probably the hardest look to get right; beyond any complex night look. It's all about the base. 

And it all comes down to maintenance; using the correct products- a good cleanser, skin-suitable exfoliant and a hydrating moisturiser, so that I one day may glow like Miss Aldridge.

My products of choice at the moment are: Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, Dermalogica Thermafoliant and Dermalogica Skin Smoothing cream, finished with Endota Rosehip oil and Burts Bees lip balm.

Who stole my girlfriend?

I am so impressed by the collection from Stolen Girlfriend Club this season.

An amazing use of colour and sheer fabrics; the orange rainbow that comes through the Delusion dress is utterly devine <3
