Following on from my last post, if you do want to get into this season's bright colours, mix and match them with neutrals and animal prints. I seriously can't fault this outfit by Carolina Engman. From the eye-popping Monki Sweater down to the purple socks with the Jessica Simpson platforms, I believe this is the perfect way to splash a bit of colour. I need to own the Urban Outfitters Blanket Shawl and Anna-Karin Karlsson sunglasses, they would go with EVERYTHING!
This season's crayola-bright clothes aren't for everyone. A way to embrace this trend without feeling too over the top is with crazy bright lips and nails. I can't get enough of adding these splashes of colour which make me feel both polished and uber girly. Two of my favourite lip colours: Hara by Napolean and Saint Germain by Mac. Stunning...
It’s my marketing dream come true. A story about our upcoming co-production with Sydney Theatre Company, Edward Gant’s Amazing Featsof Loneliness, on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar!!! The fact that Cate Blanchett is the Artistic Director of STC probably helped. Also the fact that she is a huge advocate for, and looks unbelievable in, Romance Was Born, who are doing the costumes for the show.
The article talks about Cate, the show and the costumes. Oh the costumes! I can’t wait! As imagined by Romance Was Born we will see the likes of a mirror-ball-encrusted cape and a dress covered in jammy rolls. Some of the costumes are currently in India being beaded and bedazzled before arriving at La Boite in a couple of weeks’ time. There is also rumour of a costume that turns into a house that one of the actors steps out of. Amazing!
This show is a must see for anyone who like theatre or fashion. ‘A filthy evening of theatrical bad taste’ (the Guardian (UK))Edward Gant’s Amazing Featsof Loneliness will be theatre at its most theatrical. I advise all my friends and lovers to get along to see it from 14 May -12 June at La Boite.
Ellery's Spring 2011 collection is everything I am loving about fashion at the moment. As the complicated name suggests, Kym has chosen not to stick with simple or for that matter similar fabrics. There is leather, leopard print, textures, layering, structured shoulders, midriff tops, volumous skirts, satin, sheer, embellishments, tulle and metallics (phew!). All of these gems are brought together by a gorgeous palette of neutral hues. *Sigh!* I wish I could own every piece!
