Into the fabulous days

Isn't that an amazing title for a fashion editorial?
I mean, isn't that the most perfect summary of the essence of fashion? You don't buy clothes with the intention to look anything less than fabulous so when you head out with a killer new outfit "into the fabulous days" is the perfect statement.

This editorial also features the lovely Louise Parker, soft lighting and killer eyeliner.

It was featured in Spur Magazine Sept. 2014.

Fashion Editorial: Collections II

Since I was so slack the past little while...prepare for fashion editorial overload!

After my post yesterday about Louise Parker's photos I went on a hunt for fashion editorials of hers that I love.

This editorial is from Dazed Autumn 2014, photographed by Charlie Engman and styled by Karen Langley, staring (of course) Louise Parker!

What I love about this editorial is the movement be it either the in the fashion itself or in the gatorade (you'll see in the photos). What I don't like about this editorial though is the fashion itself. I like parts of the outfits but it is sport luxe - a style I do not appreciate at all.

Louise Parker Photography

Hello everyone - clearly keeping a regular blog is something that I am not the most successful at because life keeps getting in the way. No excuses, I simply need to get myself together. 

Louise Parker is a really beautiful model who has graced high fashion runways, ready to wear and fashion editorials - but the reason she is one of my favourite models is because of the photographs she takes of her fellow models.

The photos Louise takes are beautiful and true renditions of the busy life of a model, which face it, everyone dreams of occasionally from the travel, the beautiful clothes and (in my case) the height

Look at some of her beautiful photos under the cut and envy the model high life.

That's TSAR last season

I think I'm a little in love with Russia.

Now, if you know me, you'd know I love snow but I detest the cold - so I actually think I'm more in love with the idea of Russia. From their onion domes, babushka dolls to the rich history of the Tsars, the revolution, communism and so much more! It really is a fascinating place.

I spent a good deal of my childhood watching the Anastasia movie and being in love with Dimitri (my first crush and yes, I am aware he is a cartoon character) which only fuelled my love for the country and its myths even more (and it's an awesome movie). Also there was an extravagance of the time that (granted their extravagances were arguably one of the reasons the people of Russia rebelled and killed the Tsar and his family...) are the sort that don't exist today. Seriously. Look up Faberge Eggs if you want to get an idea of the wealth and opulence these people had at their disposal (I'm totally jealous - aside from the whole being murdered part).

(Seriously if you haven't seen the film go see it now. Go.)

So because of this love and because it's winter I'm posting a Tsarist-Russia theme photo editorial which is just so beautiful it makes me want every single thing the model wears! Which is exactly what a good photo editorial should do!!

My last word will probably be "oops" or "crap".

Okay so in case you haven't noticed I've been a little absent from this blog for a little while because...I accidentally killed the internet by downloading too much (hence the "oops" and the "crap"). So, to compensate, I'm going to try to post something every day for the rest of this week to make up for it!

Starting off the bat in a photo editorial from Marie Claire Australia (circa September 2013) which features one of those things I always love to see on people but actually don't really have the guts to wear myself too often!


Seriously, feathered pants? They are so ridiculous I'd never wear them but I want them to sit in my wardrobe for me to admire how wonderful they are. 
(Only half joking)

Monday Runway: Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2014

The fall/winter ready-to-wear collection from Dolce & Gabbana, entitled "Enchanted Sicily", is one that brings to life a fairytale fantasy complete with knights in shinning armour, woodland animals, chain mail hoods, bejewelled gauntlets and kings in crowns. This is by far one of my favourite Dolce & Gabbana collection and not only because it brings my philosophy of fashion to life, but because it is a truly beautiful collection.

This collection is another exploration by the pair into the Sicilian way of life, one of several the pair, Domenico Dolce (a Sicilian by birth) and Stefano Gabbana have created over the past few seasons.

Click below to see my favourites from the runway as well as the campaign for the collection shot by Domenico Dolce including supermodel Claudia Schiffer.
