Lady of the Sunshine

Photo by Moi

Not being a great lover of the cold, hubby & I skipped town for a little Sunny Coast sojourn with our mates. The past five days have been filled with plenty of pina coladas & margaritas, far too much delicious food, sunny strolls on the esplanade & many laughs with great friends. 
Back to the daily grind as of tomorrow... Queensland, it's been fun.

Vintage Books, Shoes & Chandeliers...

These are a few of my favourite things.

All photos by moi - taken on the Hipstamatic app for the iPhone4

Vintage books on my mantelpiece, animal print boots on the La Maison dresser, chandelier sconces, treasures & trinkets on my bookcase and just a part of my shoe collection... Thought I'd share a glimpse into my world. So tell me, what are your favourite things in your home?

Thread People: Vintage

Photography by Edward Chiofalo for Looking Glass

Feeling a little "Mad Men" in my vintage minty dress from Thread People. Ok, so you'll have to excuse the iPhone I'm holding in one of the pics - oops! Hey, I'm just an old fashioned gal trying to get by in a modern world!

Thread People is an online shopping destination that offers the coolest brands at heavily discounted prices. They search the globe for the sweetest sales around & not only do they offer premium fashion & street wear labels but also the very best vintage finds. My minty dress above is from the vintage section & I simply adore it! As you can see it puts me in a Mad Men slash Hitchcock kinda mood...

Mad Love: White Dreams

I'm so excited about the very first collection of Mad Love dropping into stores this month! If you didn't see my behind the scenes sneaky preview back in April, you can check it out here.

Last month I was lucky enough to be invited along to the High Summer shoot entitled "White Dreams" to give you guys another sneak peak into the next collection which drops into stores in October. Take a look...

There's me examining the goods up close & madly loving what I find!

5 Fictional Characters I'd Love to Have Coffee With...

I came across this article on All Women Stalk the other day & it's had me thinking... which fictional characters would I most love to have coffee with...? In no particular order, here's my five:

Who wouldn't want to attend the Mad Hatter's Tea Party? 
(so, ok, I'd have to have tea not coffee)
Amelie Poulain. I love this character more than I can say.
I'd be a complete & utter liar if I didn't include Mr Darcy here.
Gandalf; for his wisdom.
The Wizard of Oz. I could do with some courage right now.

Now, do tell me, who would your top 5 be?
