pandas // cutest animals (possibly) in the world

27 Sep 2011


Okay, just when I try and deny how much I love pandas (seriously friends, stop buying me panda-related merchandise!) I see something like this. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE PANDAS?!

music // the beards

17 Sep 2011

Thank goodness for technology that lets me keep up with Aussie music... I just saw this on my friend's Facebook wall and laughed a lot. This song is awesome and the guy is a great singer! I'll definitely have to check out their beardography.

I went to Bath last month and I managed to catch this amazing costume exhibition at the Bath Fashion Museum. The detail on some of the period costumes was just amazing. Oh, and there were costumes that all my favourite English actors had worn: Johnny Depp, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Orlando Bloom, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson... you name it! There's going to be a lot of photos here! So many in fact, that I've decided to do two posts. There's just too many photos to include!

fashion night out // london

12 Sep 2011

I went to London's Fashion Night Out last night and stood 5th in line (thanks to Letizia who actually waited, while I arrived late after a meeting) outside Alexander McQueen to get my AMcQ key to potentially win a tote bag (I didn't). Then we strolled to Chanel to wait for a manicure and it was taking way too long and we had a talk by amazing fashion illustrator David Downton to get to! I'm so glad Letizia took me, because he was an incredible, engaging speaker and his work is simply stunning.











My Alexander McQueen key... that didn't win me anything.


 Louis Vuitton. We didn't go in, but I liked the window display.


books // fashion bites

10 Sep 2011


It seems somewhat silly that I never do little book reviews since (a) I love books and (b) I work for a book publisher. Anyway, this gorgeous little hardback is full of hilarious quotes from the fashion people of the world, including my homegirl Chanel (of course!). It seems fitting I should write about this one since I went to London's Fashion Night Out last night.







So buy a copy for the fashionista in your life! I have a lot of fashionistas in my life... I can see stocking fillers for Christmas done already! We're also publishing Fairy Tales by Viktor & Rolf next month. That's definitely going to be on the Christmas list for friends!
