Longing

Wearing – Nishe top, Ryder shorts, Vans shoes (similar), Naomi Murrell white and rose gold ring, Alister Yiap hexagon ring I don’t know if it’s because I’m on a run of night shifts this week or because I’ve been at the end of some unduly hurtful words that have been going round my mind, like a broken record of negativity, but lately my heart has been…

Hyde Park 2.0

Wearing – Madewell dress (similar), Bul shoes Flashback to that time we played with light, shadows and hair in Hyde Park. Plus I’d just rewarded myself with these new sandals after receiving some unexpected good news. It was a pretty cool afternoon.

Unexpected

Wearing – Country Road top and skirt, Christian Louboutin heels, Lee Coren clutch, Naomi Murrell ring This was a tiny moment we captured walking back to our car after the Open House Perth launch night. Some days we just have to pinch ourselves as it was just two little years ago that we started this here blog. And now to find ourselves being invited…

Bhalo

Goodness gracious me, how sweet are these pieces from Bhalo’s latest collection! The easy breezy cuts and colours that make me feel like eating gelato in a forest on a sunny day (I’ll make it happen someday) are just what the doctor ordered for the summer which, if you live in Perth, seems to be almost here but then swept away by yet another…

Go wild

A little while ago, a good friend of mine who I’ve only met in recent years came over for dinner. She looked for some time at one of our wedding photos on the wall and finally said, “Who’s that?”. I hadn’t quite realised just how much we’ve changed over the last (almost) six years! Our faces haven’t changed that dramatically, but we’re certainly more sure of…

Cockade

Wearing – American Apparel jumpsuit, St Saviours hat via Kate + Abel at Many6160, Donelli loafers (similar), vintage handbag I like the feathers, I said. Oh, you mean the cockade? said he. A fancy word for a fanciful embellishment. Cockade, says I? I like it.

Kate + Abel

When we grow up we wanna be Matt and Kate. They’re the milliners from the I-want-one-of-everything hat label, St Saviours, the shopkeepers of Kate + Abel, and the heart and soul behind the much-needed, pure genius, Fremantle-based Spacemarket project, Many6160. You know those days where you set out to get started on that amazing idea you had bright and early in the morning, decide to take a…

Home life

Wearing – Topshop dress (similar), Gorman cardigan, Muji socks, Apartamento magazine via Kate + Abel An orange couch. An orange cardigan. An orange cat armrest. What more do I need this day.

Simplicity

Wearing – Jaggar top, Neuw jeans (in black), Zoe Kratzmann boots, Lee Coren clutch, earrings from Common Ground Denim and leather. A monochromatic day to fit a monochromatic mood. The feel of soft suede in my hands. Stained lips and cheeks.

An afternoon with Michelle Lau

Blogging is a truly rewarding creative experience that often draws on both imagery and text to draw in readers, and can reach and be read by people all over the world. It is unique in that it is an outlet for personal expression and blog topics can range from food to fashion to politics to religion to deeply personal stories, there are few limits. As you…
