Fabulous Diamonds - in my opinion one of Australia's most promising bands - are playing two shows in Brisbane this weekend. Friday night you can find them at Burst City in Southbank, alongside my Brisbane favorites and old comrades, Slug Guts, aswell as Feathers, Blank Realm and Deadnotes. The show is all ages, BYO and cheap so there is no reason not to be there!
Saturday marks the opening of the Brisbane Festival and the annual Frankly! Its A Pop Festival at the Powerhouse. Headlining is the inimitable Xiu Xiu, and the lineup includes Fabulous Diamonds, Surf City, Guy Blackman, High Places and Crayon Fields.

There hasn't been a musically promising weekend like this in Brisbane for eons!

Push to Shove

Miss Unkon 2010

The shape of the skirt in this dreamy maxi is incredible and I love the cutouts - perfect for a humid Brisbane summer.

Wild, Wild Party

Today in sunny Brisbane I wore the following to work:
Boxvintage dress and cardigan, Topshop tasselled wedges and vintage blue crocodile doctor's bag. This bag was a present from my boyfriend and one of my most treasured possessions - I love the color and size.

Topshop tasselled platforms. I received these in the mail a few weeks ago and was pleased to discover they are super comfortable to wear despite the height.. The shape is reminiscent of an old pair of beloved Nine West leather platform sandals which have long since died - I am pretty certain I'll get a lot of wear out of these this summer.

Sunshine Of Her Love

The beautiful weather of late has been getting me very excited about summer! Queensland summers can be verociously hot and humid however, so I try and stick to natural fibres over the hotter months. Yesterday I invested in two beautiful 1950's cotton frocks in preparation, one shown above - and the other a delicious pale lemon colored permanent pleat cotton voile. Thanks again Boxvintage!

A Way To Fall

I am the proud owner of these Beau Coops booties in the black - seriously the most comfortable heels I've ever worn - thanks to the kids at Violent Green for once again hooking me up!

Wild Preparation

I bought my tickets for Soundwave 2011 this morning - the lineup is probably one of the most incredible festival lineups I've ever seen and there are so many acts I am mad keen to see.

Check out below Gang of Four performing my favorite of all their songs, Anthrax, at the 2009 All Tomorrow's Parties festival, curated by The Breeders.


Over the last few days I feel like Deadly Ponies has been taunting me... I encountered the Rosette bag in person for the first time on Sunday, when an unsuspecting customer walked into my work bearing the beautiful bag and was promptly accosted by my questions and excited squeals. Then, today whilst perusing my daily blog reading, I came across this picture of Susie, toting the same great bag. I'm not at all surprised that she owns it, given what fabulous taste she has! Furthermore, I've been lucky enough to see the Deadly Ponies Summer collection lookbook and I am dying in anticipation for every piece! In conclusion, Susie looks fabulous but I am jealous of her bag and can't wait for the new collection.

Within You Without You

My bank balance is a little sad after my visit yesterday to the Gail Sorronda and Friends Studio Sale, however I am now the proud owner of this silver headlights headband. I've been lusting after it since I used it for a photo shoot and am very excited that I was able to get my hands on the last one available!

My friends at Gail Sorronda have organised this fun sale for this weekend, for once Brisbane isn't missing out on the sweet sample and past season sales that our southern state friends often get privileged to enjoy! I am excited to score myself some RWB goodies...
