RUBY Pixie Dress.

Posted on May 3, 2013

Recently I was invited to an event with the dress code, ‘cocktail’. As you may already know, I’m not exactly good at dressing up. Casual I can do, but any kind of ‘fancy’ is beyond me. I have many a dress, but none really seem appropriate for ‘cocktail’, and I generally never feel comfortable wearing anything that is cocktail, so I had a bit of a search around and came across this RUBY ‘Pixie’ dress, which is part of their ‘An Education’ capsule collection that Evan Tetreault shot a few months back (remember?). It’s comfortable (eating friendly) and cute. It’s black so it’s versatile, but the shiny, textured fabric makes it that little bit fancy. Note though: You can not wear a bra with…

RUBY’s ‘An Education’ capsule collection drops this Friday. Here’s what it looks like.

Posted on March 13, 2013

Remember when that guy Evan Tetreault was in town a couple of months ago? … Yeah, well, fricken go back and read the post already then. He was here, all the way from Boston where he’s based right now. While he was here he shot a little lookbook and campaign for RUBY‘s latest 60s inspired capsule collection, ‘An Education’. I got to pop along, partly because I was Evan’s ride there, and partly because hello, of course I wanted to see the range. It is really, really cute. Drawstring printed pants, cute dresses – I’m feeling the one above (also in black, below) for some kind of party – it’s definitely a party dress, tops with sleeve ruffles, it’s all good. So, this range.…

People I met and liked: Rodney Fisher, Part 1.

Posted on March 11, 2013

  This is actually a kind of special edition of People I Met and Liked, because there’s an interesting story behind it. Basically, a good eight years ago I went to this recording of ‘Live in the Lounge’. It was a short series of live music performances in a lounge-ish setting, filmed infront of a live audience that aired on the station that was then known as C4 (now known as ‘FOUR‘). My particular ‘episode’ was a show by Goodshirt. Before the whole band came on, the lead singer – Rodney Fisher – came out and sang a song that I always remembered as ‘the hair cut song’. In short, I really liked it and for years my brother and I tried to find…

Back in Black.

Posted on March 7, 2013

Most of you know I’m not so much one for grunge. I can’t seem to pull it off. Yeah, I constantly look scruffy, but grunge is a whole new level of blacks and hardcore music and attitude that I can’t even begin to get my head around. That being said, with Winter approaching, I’m now on a bit of a dark colours, black jeans buzz. I don’t think I could venture all the way into leather pants, but the above black waxed denim from the current Lee A/W 2013 ‘Back in Black’ range seems like a good introductory option… What do you reckon?

The Dungaree Club.

Posted on March 5, 2013

There’s no denying that there’s a bit of an overall trend right now – longs, shorts, skirts, you name it, people are loving it. So, in celebration of this all-in-one trend, last week myself and a couple of others took to one of the local high schools surrounding my home with several pairs of dungarees in tow. We got some of the new kids on the block – four suitably Mean Girls-esque new face girls: Emma and Jennifer from Nova, Renee and Zara from Clyne, paired them up with some of the new season’s dungaree offerings and voila! The Dungaree Club was formed:

Lonely Day #3.

Posted on March 4, 2013

I never would’ve thought to put blue tartan with blue leopard, and even when I was in the Lonely Hearts showroom holding the two pieces I was still quite skeptical. It wasn’t until I’d put them on that I thought, hey – I might be on to something here. I’m pretty conservative so this is a lot crazier than I would usually go for even though it’s just a button up shirt and pants, but I like it, I’m out of my comfort zone with the prints, definitely, but I could definitely get used to it.
