Edeline Lee is rocking my world at the moment. Here are some of my favourites from her A/W and S/S 2012 collections.
Lydia Jane's photographs are so beautiful, I visit her website every now and then for an ogle. Today, I popped in for a visit and looked at this farm wedding, it's definitely worth a share, McKenzie and Jamie chose their farm as a location for their wedding, which is so special. I just love the simplicity of it all, I honestly dislike huge weddings with all the glitz and the glamour, in my opinion it's superficial and unnecessary. A wedding should be enjoyed with it's real purpose; a celebration of love and commitment between two people. These photographs motivated me to maybe one day buy a farm and get hitched. To see the rest go here
Here are some more streetstyle looks that have recently influenced my style.
Her layers and shades with that varsity jacket
Her leather pencil skirt teamed with that knitted sweater
Her Stella MCartney frock with those leather boots and jacket (like the edge!)
Her shirt with those shorts. Deliciously casual and comfortable for Summer
Her side striped pants with that casual sweater and classic heels
Her clutch and loafers, kinda like the touch of pink (not my favourite colour but it works for me here)
Her sweater and pants. Love the pastels
Her wide legged jeans with that buttoned up shirt, blazer and metallic clutch.
Her horse print shirt tucked into her pants. Like the textures too
Her blouse with those boots. Like the contrast
Seriously beaming over this shoot for Quality Magazine. The vintage inspired styling is heavenly.

I first spotted Jiia Kuan's illustrations via pinterest and ever since then I've been intrigued. She loves fashion so naturally her illustrations are inspired by designer collections, vogue covers or just any fashion that tickles her fancy. So, out of my own curiosity I decided to match up a few of her inspirations with the original. Go here to look at the rest of her work.

I thought I'd give you a glimpse into a designer that I'm not very familiar with. Just in case you didn't know, Zero + Maria Cornejo is a Chilean designer based in New York, she has many loyal clients, some are acclaimed women such as Tilda Swinton and Michelle Obama. I really fancy this collection as there is variation from casual to glam. To see the rest of the collection, go here
I'm seriously looking forward to Baz Luhrman's remake of The Great Gatsby (watch the trailer here if you haven't seen it yet). I read the book in high school and again at my own leisure. F. Scott Fitzgerald and the entire 1920's era fascinates me (viva la Midnight in Paris, defs one of my faves), so naturally I'm in serious favour of this shoot for Americana Manhasset's Fall 2012 catalogue. It's inspired by the silent movie, The Artist and Karlie Kloss is the star of the show.
Some awesome portraits by Shot by Shooter. The photographer describes it as; "a blend of fashion portraiture and street theatre". Go have a look
Resort wear time is the absolute best and because I've been sharing my faves, I thought I'd rather let you have a look at Popomomo's Spring 2012 collection. It was my intention to show you the glory of Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection, which you can check out here but sometimes it's nice to be a little different.
"Popomomo’s Spring 2012 collection explores nostalgia for Lake Michigan, and the unadulterated creativity of the neighborhood’s outsider artist Mary Nohl. Nohl and Lake Michigan are referenced in Popomomo’s debut series of digitally printed silks, as well as in Spring 2012’s palette evoking the Lake's wooded beaches: seafoam greens, sandy taupes, fire reds, and ocean blues, interspersed withflashes of gold".
