The Picnic Clutch

Remember THIS rant I posted about the Jil Sander Paper Bag?
Well lucky for all you people who actually wanted this, Marie Turnor carries the lunch bag style for $180 (shop HERE). 100% Genuine Italian Leather, the material is already better than the expensive counterpart. For the full collection, view HERE

It even comes in a metallic silver foil (shop HERE)... no better way to celebrate NYE and welcome 2013.

On that note, I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year in advance. For the very first time, I'm not blogging in my Pj's back home in Sydney. Also for the very first time, I'm posting about something other than fashion. If you follow me on Twitter, you would already know that I'm on holidays in Tropical Queensland ... Cairns. I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy :)

She's Electric, a 'seriously chic Australian fashion label' by siblings Chloe, Emily and Ven Gialouris present 'Sirens of the Sea'.
At first I was expecting waves of curly red hair and shimmering oceanic palettes but this lookbook conjures a different atmosphere.
Featuring a clean and soft colour palette with that subtle reference to the ocean devoid of Little Mermaid cliches, it's so difficult to overlook such a vision. The styling is so simple with well placed pearls in the braids and complementary jewellery.
My favourite piece? The gorgeous starfish bralette. There's just something so raw and pure about it implying a 'sophisticated elegance'.

2012 Christmas Wishlist

Just in time for the holidays, I'm collaborating with Matchesfashion.com to present a Christmas wishlist. If you don't know this site, I suggest you check it out as it carries the latest collections from designer brands such as YSL, Burberry, Balenciaga and the list goes on.
Although most things (more like everything) on this luxury online store is outside my price range, it's always helpful keep track of the most recent off-the-runway pieces for inspiration. Without further ado, have a merry Christmas and hope you like my X-mas wishlist picks.


Matchesfashion.com, Matches, Christmas, wishlist, We Are Handsome, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Mary Katrantzou

1. We Are Handsome King lion-print swimsuit: Seeing as the Australian Christmas is never white and snowy but filled with hot days and balmy nights, a perfect swimsuit is essential. This one-piece featuring such a daring and loud print will definitely make you stand out in a sea of boring bikinis.

2. Lanvin Crystal embellished box clutch: Channel your 1920's flapper girl with this crystal encrusted clutch. Not only are the embellishments super glittery, they're in the perfect shade of Christmas green.

3. Rupert Sanderson Marilyn crystal lips shoes: Very playful pair of shoes with a gorgeous crystal lip embellishment. I love the pop of red making it so appropriate for Christmas.

4. Mary Katrantzou Anchorino day dress: I've always longed for a Ms Katrantzou piece since her abstract prints are so unique that they're iconic. Although this dress doesn't scream Christmas, it definitely implies lush vacations in the tropics lounging in private boats and planes. If that's your plan for the holidays, then this dress is perfect.

5. Isabel Marant Stars Light cuff & Stars Light ring: A great statement piece to pair with a black sequined dress (see number 7)

6. Alexander McQueen Unicorn knuckleduster embroidered clutch: What a luxurious and extravagant clutch with such intricate detailing on the knuckleduster. Permission granted to continue to stare and drool at this piece.

7.  Velvet Rosey sequinned dress: A LBD with a festive twist. Somehow sequins or anything shimmery reminds me of Christmas.

8. Eddie Borgo Gold-plated pentagram ring: Doesn't this little gem just look like the star on top of the Christmas tree? This gold-plated brass ring would be such a festive touch to your holiday outfit.
