When How Two live contacted me to make their Stakes Day outfits, I was obviously pretty excited! I mean, who better to sashay about in some of my wildest frocks than these radical sisters?
Whipping them up two of my favourite designs and some glittery/pom accessories to boot, I was so thrilled to see that they even handmade themselves some matching shoes for the day. What dreamboats!

Today I had the pleasure of testing the stunning Melissa from Vivian’s. Decking my living room out in flowers and foliage we created a splendid little dreamland that I didn’t want to leave. Hope you like the snaps! xo

Over the last few weeks I have been busily working away on an exciting project that I am SO PUMPED to be able to share with you now! A couple of months ago Patience (from the undeniably wondrously-awesome band The Grates) asked me to make some costumes for their headlining act at The Red Deer festival. In addition to wetting myself with excitement, I of course obliged, and have since spent many an eve working to create an outfit that did Patience’s effervescent stage presence appropriate justice.
Developing a fairly robust pom-pom jacket and flippy, spotted, coral dress, this has to be one of my favourite outfits EVER. The jacket was crafted from literally hundreds of Pom Poms from Patience’s wedding (because yes – pom poms were the theme of her wedding) which I trimmed into shape before adding some of my own festive pom poms too.
Having the opportunity to then get to see Patience rock out in the outfit was something I’ll never forget – particularly as I was even allowed to have a dance on stage in a couple of songs…which lets just say, was an unexpected TREAT…
All in all, I felt so privileged to be able to be apart of their show, and have the opportunity to dress such a wonderful gal! Definitely the swooniest of times. xx
The other week, the amazing Brooke and I got together to make some magic. Popping on a paper hat, glitter stars, and some winning garments, we merrily trotted around New Farm to catch some splendid moments. Hope you like! xx
So swoony! xx
So the first collection is done and dusted! Wow! Thank you so much to all the beautiful models, Brooke Jamieson, Alexandra Atanasov, Georgia Dixon and Isobel Larkin! Also, epic high fives must also go to Andrea Jankovic – who is just the most superb photographer ever! Hope you enjoy these snaps, and remember to keep an eye out for the next collection! All frocks can be viewed and bid on, over at our facebook page. xx
Lauren Carney and I had the most splendid time setting up for the ‘Some Girls’ party we held on Friday night to celebrate our festive collaboration together. Stringing up Lauren’s magnificent art and hanging bunting and pom poms from the ceiling, the atmosphere in the GLORIOUS Southside Tearoom was wondrously festive. Grabbing ourselves a ‘Zesty Bestie’ (the cherry lemonade based cocktail of the evening) and some grape flavoured Hubba Bubba, we then got changed into our shiny frocks before quickly returning to begin the party.
We were so happy that everyone got so into the theme of the night! Girls showed up with their candy coloured tresses adorned in unicorn horns, jewels and pastel party hats. Two fancy femmes even made their dresses from scratch – and they were so beautiful! I was so amazed how much effort some people put in! It was really the most splendid of sights!
It was also wonderful to see some of my favourite humans wearing my handmade frocks. There is something about seeing people you know in your own garments – they really do breathe life into them!
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and made the evening so special. The collection sold out on Sunday night and we ended up raising $1395.00 for the Motor Neuron Disease Association of Queensland.
Now off to begin planning for the next one aha. FUN!xx
Hooray! It didn’t rain!
When my eyes popped open at 6am this morning, my first thought was, “the weather!”. Bolting upright in bed, I sprung to the window to crane my neck outside and peer up at the sky. To my pleasant surprise, the sky was fancy and blue – I couldn’t have asked for more perfect shoot weather.
Tucking myself back in bed, I stole a few more ours sleep before skipping out into a day filled with funbuns, glitter, jeweled glasses and the most fru-fru frocks I have ever fashioned.
Today really was the swooniest of times. Isobel, Brooke, Georgia and Alex were just stunning, working their magic for Andrea – who always takes the most wondrous of snaps! Can’t wait to share the finished result! Should be a real treat. xx
