This is a new version of my most favourite, most versatile skirt in my wardrobe. I love this skirt so much that I have two of them, both in red, and I wear them TO DEATH at work, all throughout spring, summer, and autumn. Team it with some thick tights and a cute sweater and you can rock the Sherry Skirt through winter too!
I was first introduced to Ellen’s work in the 90’s, as a fashion-loving teen who also had a penchant for music videos and women looking and acting like badasses (how things never change!). She photographed a lot of the women that I thought were hot shit, and her bold style caught my eye. Her photos were high-flash, high-contrast and highly coloured. Her female models were sexy but girly at the same time, and it looked like they were having a lot of fun.
This week while I was in Pinterest-land, I came across this image which lit a fire in my imagination…
SLAM! is a comic series about roller derby, which packs a punch with its use of bright colours and slapstick comedy. Cos if we know anything about roller derby, it’s that you will inevitably fall down, especially if you’re a newbie (aka ‘fresh meat’ in derby-land). A contact sport on wheels doesn’t give you much of a chance.
Last week I feasted my eyes on pieces of Dior, up-close and personal in Melbourne, and boy was it worth the trip! From the effortless lines and impeccable tailoring of Christian Dior’s own work, to the lavish and exuberant works by John Galliano, to the sweet and sophisticated pieces by Raf Simons, to some of the most recent pieces, full of bohemian charm, by the first female designer in Dior’s history, Maria Grazia Chiuri. We were spoilt for choice, eyes trying to drink it all in and memorise all the little delicious details.
In less than a week I’ll be in Melbourne ogling dresses by the formidable Christian Dior, and I can’t freakin’ wait! Yes, I am one of those fashion-lovers who felt it completely rational to fly to Melbourne to look at dresses. Not buy them, just look at them. I even considered traveling all the way to Paris for the exhibition there, but thought better of traveling to Paris without the husband, after we had a such a great time there together last time. Cos it’s PARRRISSSSS….. *swoon*
