Estelle and EVANS by Mai Adams

A couple shots from a photo shoot I did for the perfectly humble yet talented Mai Adams, who just graduated from her diploma in fashion design at the CIT (Canberra Institute of Technology). Kate Luke did a killer job with the photography, and Judy Stone made us all look like windswept moody Barbies. The location is Lake George just outside of Canberra, which provided the perfect diffused lighting effects and a few too many snakes for our liking. Thank you so much to Mai, Kate and Judy, and to the unbelievably leggy models Kimberly and Emma for the adventurous and partially glamorous girls day out.

Today's inspiration: 80s (hence the rainbow paddle-pop shorts and sneaker combo. Actually, I am working on applying the same colour combo to my hair).

almost famous

I don't often do 70s inspired but there you go...
Got a bit of an unfortunate waffle-style sunburn to complement this top too.

The last couple of days have seen me running around work chasing after some kittens we borrowed for a photo shoot, and making final preparations for our staff Christmas party. It promises to be an epic occasion.

Rocking my totally work-inappropriate skirt with studs and a splash of aqua on the nails. Definitely my preferred nail colour, although any pastel will do.

I didn't think I'd ever really get into the clog trend, but these were so tall with such a nice platorm and such meaty thick black straps that I couldn't resist. I've decided I am done with heels that don't have platforms. They are lame.

c'mon make some big jumps, big jumps, you afraid to break some bones?

Feeling very lethargic after a long Sunday at a student fashion parade, I will post some pics if I ever get my hands on some :) Decided I need to do more exercise to keep my energy levels up, so I went on a rather half-hearted little meander in the local bushland. I inspired myself by putting together this Indiana Jones/Lara Croft homage of an outfit, in case that wasn't obvious enough...

lost and found

Been having a very cruisy day sleeping in, brunching with a friend and cleaning my room. There was some serious closet purging going on, and as always happens with a purge, you magically find millions of hidden items that are exactly what you're looking to wear right now, if only you actually remembered that they have been existing in your wardrobe all along. This is just a small stash of the jewelery that I have forgotten about and really need to wear more often.

I know a lot of people had a go with no-spend November, and it is possibly something I will try to do in December. I mean, obviously excluding Christmas presents. You need to remember that, when you feel like you definitely, absolutely need to set out on a shopping rampage, you can always go shopping, y'know, within your own closet...

dynamic duo

Classic Batman is the best Batman. You hay have noticed a running theme with me and cropped tops, paired with something high waisted. In my twisted mind I think this somehow makes the whole thing less, for lack of a better word, whore-ish. Yep, cropped tops and high waists together make quite the dynamic duo.
