Former Editor for Harpers Bazaar Russia turned freelance writer for numerous publications, Miroslava Duma should almost be a household name at this point. Known as a fashion icon internationally I’m sure she will now frequent your google searches .

today I’m wearing…

20120716-083424.jpg
arty ring by YSL, skull ring by Alexander McQueen, blue sapphire ring is a sentimental piece, other rings by Jewels by Jacqueline .

The pink YSL was a birthday present I received in Paris last year, the McQueen was a present to myself and the blue sapphire ring was my nonnas ring . The others I found in Byron bay by a local designer – I first discovered her pieces 4 years ago at the Byron Bay markets when I purchased 2 key necklaces . Upon my last visit I managed to find these great rings .

Zimmermann, bluebell & spring .

M wears bluebell dress by Zimmermann .

Scored this baby for $130 rather than $450…gotta love the Zimmermann outlet! I must admit its hard to wear because the print is so memorable…still beautiful though!

These are some of my favourite photographs – I put my sister in a dress and told her to run, twirl and jump ‘gracefully’ and put her early childhood gymnastics skills to good use!
Got some awesome shots 🙂

described as a fashion maniac .

Anna Dello Russo .

Prior to assuming her role as Editor At Large & Creative Consultant for Vogue Japan she spent 18 years as Editor for Vogue Italia .

Some may think she is crazy but i love her, not to mention she owns over 4000 pairs of shoes – respect right there . every outfit is a risk and would look absurd on a regular being but some how she just makes it work . miu miu glitter booties you will be mine one day…

This is exactly why Australia needs to introduce more international labels . Because no longer am I restricted to a computer screen . but there I was . In ysl . In Europe . And this is the result .
I blame the Australian retail industry . And my lack of self control . Some people think its silly…that I have the same ring in different colours . But they just don’t understand, you can never have enough ysl .

Peace,
M.

lemlem, ysl & knits .

Ring by ysl, scarf by lemlem, knitted cardi by jv selection .

I purchased both the scarf and the knit in Byron Bay . What I love about the scarf is the story behind it;
Liya Kebede, supermodel and ambassador, discovered a decline in local demand for the traditional weaving goods of her native country Ethiopia . To inspire economic independence in her native country Liya established lemlem in 2007, effectively preserving the art of weaving . This highlighted the historic significance and recognised the beauty and quality of their work .

Will definitely be purchasing some more of her pieces!
