House of Harlow 1960

My Pick


Working in Perth's Claremont Quarter I have the privledge of getting to witness the style of some of Perth's most fashionable ladies on a daily basis. Individuality is a must with no two women looking the same, however lately I have been noticing a common trend, House of Harlow 1960's jewelry.
House of Harlow 1960, is the brain child of non other than Hollywood darling Nicole Richie. With collections comprising of bags, shoes, jewelry and sunglasses (with her clothing lined named Winter Kate), Richie launched her line in 2009.

Nicole maybe otherwise known as daughter of golden oldie Lionel Richie or as Paris Hilton's wild side kick in the car crash tv series called the Simple Life and then there was that controversial skinny period phase as she palled around with celeb stylist Rachel Zoe. However Nicole has managed to beat the odds and avoid the usual celeb foray into fashion disaster (A.K.A Lindsay for Herve Leger!!).

House of Harlow combines Nicole's own personal style of big sunnies, retro maxi dresses and hippy couture  and translates it in her jewellary collection.

Classic yet retro, part Art Deco part Tribal, Nicole seems to be influenced by so many things. Creations in Gold, Silver and Rose Gold are simple yet have carefully considered detail. Claremont ladies are favouring the starburst circular piece in necklaces and earrings however my favourite is the leather plated necklace.
Santa take note !

Versace does H&M

Photos all taken from

The latest designer to collaborate with Swedish mega-retailer, H&M, was non other than Versace. The collection, which is due to be released on the 17th of November was previewed in a star studded fashion show in New York last week. Stars in attendance include Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts and fashion flavour of the month Blake Lively. Prince and Nicki Minaj provided after party entertainment.
The collection had all the markings of the Versace house, bold colour, wild pattern and sparkle. Models seemed to be clones of Donatella herself, many with the platinum locks of the designer. Thank God she spared them the tango tan !

At first glance I would definitely purchase one of the funky dresses. My favourite is probably the pink fringe number.
Let me know what you think, Love or hate??
Thats all for now

Saturday Afternoon Tipple

When I am not working I usually enjoy my day off by sleeping in, browsing the shops and doing the washing. However now and again I like to plan a day off and actually do something rather than feel like I wasted the day. So last week I decided to go on a wine tour with my boyfriend. Yes, I do love a good glass of red when I get home after a long day of work, who doesn't, but it was great to learn a little more about the good stuff. Something I learned? Always hold the glass by the stem, otherwise the heat from your hands will heat up the wine and it won't taste as good. However I will admit I was feeling a little light headed after a couple sips, afterall we did start at 10am.
That day the sun was shining and I could definitely feel that summer is on the way. Yay !

It being the weekend I wanted to wear something comfortable but that doesn't mean it can't be stylish right?? So I decided to wear my SportsGirl electric blue knit, a birthday gift from Lorenzo with my hollister skinny jeans and new snake skin wedges. Trading leopard for snake I bagged these babies on my lunch break at Wittner. They were having one day of 80% off ! I couldn't resist.
What do you like to do on your day off?? I need more ideas :)
Ciao for now,
