Dedicated to anonymous.

I realise I have ignored the blog for quite some time…life and holiday aspirations kind of got in the way but an anonymous follower requested a new post so I thought why not!? This one is dedicated to you;

The highs and lows of Rodeo Drive…if only you knew!

m wears skirt by Zara, sweater by Woodford & Co, bag by Chanel, boots by Miu Miu .

This outfit post entails some of my favourite key pieces from my wardrobe;
The cobalt blue pleated skirt is the perfect summer addition . It’s easily paired with a Tshirt or even a knitted sweater in the colder months .
The knitted sweater is Woodford & Co . It was an impulse purchase 5 years ago and sat in my wardrobe, tags still attached, for the first 2 years . I love to wear it cropped with high waisted skirts . The bow tie detail on the front just completes it .
The Chanel Bag . I think the name alone is justifiable . Should you do your research, you may discover a little more about the civil rights in which this label stands for . one of the many reasons this label is a favourite .
And the glitter booties . A treasure in my wardrobe that will maintain its longevity .

Imaan Collection by Samah Designs

As a creature driven by creativity with a mind that sometimes works in bizarre ways i know that it is often difficult to elegantly articulate self expression via your craft. For this reason i truly believe that it is important that we all support one another in our creative pursuits no matter how big or small.

I came across Samah Designs on a recent visit to Melbourne at the Peoples Market in Collingwood and was fortunate enough to meet and chat with the designer of this very special jewellery line. The pieces are unique handmade laser cut pieces which are both intricate and contemporary through the combination of design and materials. Inspired by global cultures and diasporas; the tribal and indigenous, the nomadic, spiritual and the sacred the range is reflective of the passion and creative vision of the designer, Samantha Choudhury.

The photos below are of pieces from the Imaan Collection, each of which is designed to evoke a narrative of cultures, traditions and history via symmetry, symbolism, beauty and charm.

More of an observer than the handy apprentice I decided I would be more efficient at taking photos of my accessories than attempting to help fix the tap at my bfs place 🙂 .
