Mid Week Slump, And Other News…

GENERIC-TEMPLATE

Needless to say, we’ve both been quite busy the past few weeks. Utterly consumed by the mundane working life and never ending uni assignments.

And here comes that dreaded mid-week slump, oh the perils of cramming all of ones classes into one dreaded Wednesday.

Not to mention the rain and typically Melbourne bipolar weather.

In other news…

The whirlwind which was vamff just passed and mbfw is currently unfolding, (sorry for the crazy lingo but thats Melbourne and Sydney fashion weeks for our global readers.)

We have also witnessed the opening of h&m in Melbourne’s historic GPO building (yes, we sadly waved goodbye to our beloved ACNE).

In the spirit of new stores, also make sure to check out the glorious A.P.C store in Melbourne’s QV. And typically, the first thing we did was put our names on the waiting list for that godsend of a half-moon bag.

Our favourite gem of a Mexican restaurant- Fonda has also just opened up a mammoth ester restaurant in Flinders Lane. We presume that this one will be without the soul crushing 30 min wait of its Windsor counterpart. Do stop by for some delicioso pork quesadilla’s and chicken burrito’s, and don’t skip on the tequila!

Also keep your eyes peeled for a very exciting collaborations in the coming weeks!

WES

GENERIC-TEMPLATETake some time from your mid-week routine and allow yourself to be engulfed by a montage of all of Wes Anderson‘s Emotional Slow Motion Shots rolled into one nifty flick.

It’s the perfect dose of melancholy, met with New Slang by The Shins. In other words, if you’re in the mood for it, it’s a tear jerker. 

with love, Natalie.

Fashion Week Bag

GENERIC-TEMPLATE-1

Now for a very hypothetical (of course) “what’s in our fashion week bag”.

Our bag would be a Givenchy tote. Our Lipstick would be NARS.

…and then there are also a couple of other equally as essential items (note the sarcasm). Including some some very “slutty” Thierry Lasry sunglasses (we kid you not, that is their actual name), and a leather notebook to note all the “top secret” fashion week happenings.

Smythson “top sectet textured-leather notebook”

Thierry Lasry “slutty sunglasses”

NARS “lipstick in autumn leaves”

Byredo Parfum “inflorescence perfume”

Gucci “textured-leather cosmetics case”

with love.

Mademoiselle C

To be released next month is Mademoiselle Carine Roitfeld‘s documentary style film, appropriately dubbed “Mademoiselle C”.

It follows Carine’s journey in establishing her new magazine “CR Fashion Book”, whilst also switching to her personal life (and new grandmotherly role).

And, of course we can also expect it to be filled with enough one liners from the most well known designer personalities to only further establish any exiting fashion industry stigma.

Que Anna Wintour: [On Jennifer Garner] “She looks pregnant. We need to fix her.”

Get Ready ladies,

with love.
