models do it better

I was lucky enough to snap some models - including Jess Gold who is one of my favourite Aussie models right now - after the Independent Runway show which showcased labels such as Ksubi, Something Else, Jolet, Lui Hon and Extinct for L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
Throughout the week and off the runway, I also saw Rachel Rutt, Alice Burdeau, Montana Cox, Emily Jean, Louise Van Vorst and Eliza Humble who were all nice in person too (the ones I did speak to.)

finders keepers

Yesterday I went to the Camberwell market with my friends Jemimah and Julia. Even though it was a bit cold we  managed to find some pretty cool stuff.  If you're ever in Melbourne I urge you to check out the market which is open from early until 12.30 every Sunday.

Jemimah's cool finds - a woven blue and tan leather dress, fishnet top and Zara snakeskin skirt
with Julia's new cactus and featuring Jemimah's leopard shoes from Zomp

On Saturday Jemimah and I headed into the city to Myer to see Rumi Neely of fame in her first ever public Australian appearance. Rumi is in Australia to promote and shoot for the new Myer Miss Shop blogger project in which 14 Australian fashion bloggers and Rumi (who's from LA) were asked to design items for the new Miss Shop range. Rumi was super nice and even complimented me on my jumper which she called a 'sweater' which was really cute.

just shoot me

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to a live shoot for Fashion Journal's next issue with my friend Haylee. It was at Penthouse Mouse which in Melbourne, is a huge venue for L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Week to show up-and-coming Aussie designers. We had the luxury of walking around looking at these new and awesome pieces by these designers and of course watching the shoot in process with a Sapporo beer (or three!) in hand. The shoot was photographed by Jesse O'Brien a young photographer whose work is well-known and respected all throughout Australia, it was fun to see a few friends there as well.
Here are some of the photos.
