We thought Rosemary's modern take on a classic look was beautiful, including a shirt from H&M, a vintage skirt and Kenneth Cole pumps.

We bumped into internet sensation, Sarah Ellen in Sydney earlier this year and thought she looked super cute in this matching pink plaid ensemble. Her clothing is from Missguided and her shoes from Wittner.

One of our shots from MBFWA earlier this year, Maddie wore a top by Ruby Sees All and pants by Bebe under an August Street coat. She kept it casual with classic Converse All Stars and a tasseled clutch from Topshop.

Stuart's fantastic oversized pants were by Walter Van Beirendonck. He paired them with a knit by Australian label, Material Boy and bright yellow tabi shoes by Japanese brand, Yoshiyuki.

We loved the quirky details in Marc's outfit like the off-centre bow tie and twisted collar of his shirt by Byungmun Seo and camo sole of his boots by Yves Saint Laurent. His jacket was by Costume National and his cap was also Byungmun Seo.

One of our fave people, Natalie looked awesome in this 'head case' print dress and bag, and a navy coat all by Karen Walker. Her shoes were by Ginger and Smart and protea ring by Meadowlark.

We do love a bit of black and thought that Nadia's take on an all-black look was both sophisticated and youthful. Her jacket was by Claude Maus and pants by Scanlan Theodore. The beautiful personalised rolled up leather clutch was by The Mode Collective, her shoes were Alexander Wang and she finished it off with a rad vintage hat.

ALEX - I'm on a little bit of a health kick at the moment (well, I'm trying to be) so decided to try out a place I had heard a lot about - Little Bird Unbakery on Summer Street in Ponsonby. Being a big fan of Korean, I went with the Kimchi pancake made with a chickpea batter, topped with watercress and radish salad. Everything is made from raw organic ingredients and what I had tasted amazing. So much so that I walked out with one of their chocolate brownies… delicious and with no guilty aftertaste.

CHIN - Spent the weekend painting. After hours of sanding, masking taping, accidentally stabbing my face with a pair of needle-nose pliers while trying to open the damn paint can, dripping paint on EVERYTHING and painting, I've finally finished (well, two coats anyway) now that I've spent an eternity washing paintbrushes. Got bright white walls now and it was strangely therapeutic.

DANNY - This hat. I'd been wanting a cappello romano forever and had this rabbit fur felt one made by Irons Kingan Hats (stocked at Wunderkammer) earlier this year. Now that we've hit full on winter weather I've finally been able to pull it out this week and wear it.

MINO - I love discovering new websites and although I've been tuning into this one for awhile now, I thought it was worth a mention. Focusing on just menswear (and not the boring variety), I love checking out the editorials and coverage of international shows. Make sure you check it out:

Amber Renae looked striking in this Oscar Calvo dress that she paired with some studded Siren shoes.

Jamie-Maree looked cool in this Topshop Unique slip and top with multiple zippers. Her earring is by Estelle Dévé.

Brooke looked stunning in this asymmetric Bec & Bridge dress with cut-out detail in the shoulder. Her shoes are from Asos and her bag is by Céline.

Tuesday, 15 July 2014


We really liked Zanita's casual, sporty look with her skirt and shoes from Sportmax, sweater by Nanushka and sunglasses from Barton Perreira.

Monday, 14 July 2014


We thought Cissy's classic look including a jacket from Zara, shirt from Cue and pants from Forcast looked light and fresh. Her bag is by Charles & Keith.

ALEX - Last night we went to a potluck dinner where each of the guests was allocated a main or dessert and also allocated a flavour to incorporate into their dishes (lemon, honey, chilli, walnut or ricotta). I got the combo of dessert and walnut with no idea of what I could make. I had to google "walnut desserts" and ended up opting for afghan biscuits which at least have a walnut on top, which I placed on top of a chocolate mousse (which I had to make 3 times due to certain mishaps). I then decorated it the best I could to disguise the fact that my creation was much more chocolate than it was walnut. This is what it looked like.

CHIN - This week we did a hugely fun little shoot of one of our favourite NZ labels for our friends at Remix magazine. Here's just a tiny BTS snap. Can't wait to share the final results with you soon.

DANNY - This is a totally domesticated post as I also made a chocolate dessert this week, though I made no attempt to disguise the fact that the recipe called for over 1.1kg of chocolate. It's the Eight-Textured Chocolate Cake out of the cookbook from Sydney restaurant, Quay. It's literally eight separate recipes all put together in one cake. Texture one. Chocolate cake base. Texture two. Chocolate mousse. Texture three. Caramel, vanilla and chocolate ganache. Texture four. Chocolate and hazelnut dacquoise. Texture five. Milk chocolate praline discs. Texture six. Chocolate caramel cream. Texture seven. A dark chocolate top disc. Texture eight. Hot chocolate sauce to melt through the whole thing. Of course, as soon as I started on texture one I remembered that I'm really good at screwing up melting chocolate every single time. Surprisingly I didn't, until the last component, hot chocolate sauce, which I managed to completely write off three times despite it only having two ingredients and a four-sentence long recipe. Anyway, it worked out in the end and it was pretty awesome as you'd expect with that much chocolate in it.

MINO - The best kinds of invitations are the ones you can eat or drink so we were super happy to receive a bottle of Absolut Mango Vodka with a real life mango and an invite to the NZ launch. Needless to say, we cracked into it this weekend and it was goooood - the taste of a tropical summer that hopefully isn't too far away!
