Local Ladies

Three clever Melbourne-based ladies who have caught my eye this week. All the Melbourne ladies (put your hands up).

After reading this post I had to find out more about sweet label Frances Baker. These photographs from their summer lookbook were shot around Brunswick and Coburg - pretty near my own neck of the woods! So nostalgic and familiar, designer Josephine Frances and photographer Hannah Kelly have totally nailed the feeling of a hot summer in the suburbs.

'Broga' is a new venture undertaken by my pal pikkujen. After training in Thailand last year she returned to Melbourne full of yogic energy, and started her blog aswell as giving private lessons. Aimed at the dudes, but ladies are welcome, which means I've partaken in a class or two. Afterwards I feel relaxed, clearheaded and have the best sleeps ever - so important. Her enthusiasm for yoga is contagious and her blog is hilarious. You heard right - it may be about yoga, but it is an hilarious and entertaining read. It always has me LOL-ing it up! Bromaste Bishes!

Another Melbourne lady doing amazing things is Kristy Barber, with her label Kuwaii. These behind the scenes stills shot by Lizzie Hollins are from their upcoming film which is screening at the No Home Film Festival, as part of the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

"Our director Tim White captured a feeling of a haziness; something’s not quite right. There’s a notion of just off-ness which perfectly embodies our clothing and footwear, and portrays the Kuwaii woman as having a tough and irreverent femininity."

I'm bummed that I'll be out of town when the film is being screened, but  I'll be keeping an eye out for any news of it popping up online. If you are based in Melbourne you can find out more about the screenings here.

A Bumper Crop

As part of my scheme to quit spending precious weekend time at the supermarket, I have been trying out having vege boxes delivered. I chose this company, as they deliver right to your doorstep, and we've been getting a seasonal fruit and vegetable box. The produce is all organic, and locally grown - another win! Though this means you don't know what you will end up getting, which is an exciting surprise, but can also be a bit challenging when you end up with an abundance of silverbeet that you're just not that into.

Luckily I have plenty of foodie resources for inspiration, such as this magazine from Mr Jamie Oliver. Lots of delish ideas are within these pages! I think I love the design of his publications as much as the recipes.

I'd love to hear what other vege box users think of the whole arrange. Or if you have any other ways for getting food that avoids tedious supermarket trips I'd love to hear them too!

Final Image

Via this post on A Glimpse of Glamour, I was led to spend many hours trawling through the Final Image.  As the name suggests, it's a huge collection of last scene stills from a number of films.

V.Day B.Day

These are some instagram pics I took yesterday during Valentines Day, which was also more importantly my birthday! I received some lovely birthday prizes, such as the small grey mountain cushion by Hilary Grant, and an awesome Calourette necklace. I'm trying not to freak out too much about the wrinkles in my forehead in that photo above, which even the instagram blur function can't hide. Old-timer alert, Eek!

Dogs Inside

Dogs Inside is my 'tumblr on the side'. If you like interiors and/or dogs then please take a look. I always think I'll run out of good photos of cute dogs in interesting interiors, but of course I never do. The internet - there's quite a lot on here.

Here are a couple of my recent favourites.

Loving Lauren Moffatt

I hadn't heard of designer Lauren Moffatt until I saw these images of her Fall 2012 collection, taken by Erin from Calivintage. That dress on the left is the one I want, or perhaps the shirt done in the same print. Navy and yellow have never looked better!

Also: CAPES!

More awesome images of the collection are here on Calivintage.

A bit of Alex James

Seen via Miss Moss, I am loving these photos of Alex James from the Aubin & Wills spring lookbook. I'm a little bit infatuated with Mr James after reading his autobiography A Bit of a Blur. I love music biographies and his is one of the best I have read. It's such a great read, and quite surprising following his life from rock star playboy to married country gentleman and cheese monger.

I've also been swooning over this behind the scenes video of Alex and Irina Lazareanu, larking about in London and the country side and stuff.
