Since blogs becoming so popular, so too has collaborations with these bloggers.
The Sartorialist teamed with Keihls, Face Hunter with Esprit and so on.
Now it seems bloggers are teaming with labels to design and create pieces. Six London recently selected 6 bloggers to design and create an individual shoe to be sold online exclusively at farfetch.com
'The Man Repeller' is my fav.

Only 65 years... hard to believe.
Apparently French designer Louis Reard had a hard time finding a model to wear his Bikini back in 1946. Nude dancer below debuted the costume on July 5.
Its hard to believe it was such a a big deal showing so much skin given how revealing fashion can be these days.
You are all aware of the Ugg boot right? How could you not be.
As an Australian i have always found it rather amusing that people would pay so much for Ugg boots, when to us they are ugly slippers we had to wear as kids after bath time, before bed time with our pj's to keep us warm. Never would we wear them out of the house.
It was a toss up between our 'Ugg' boots or our 'Moccasins' as to which we prefer. I love the Moccy.

Dressing a baby is so much fun. Its like dolly dress up for adults.
I love shopping for my new niece. It got me thinking about all the baby designer stuff out there.
I decided on Stella McCartney's collections as my favourites.
There seem to be a lot of designer brands doing junior collections these days, Chloe, Burberry, Paul Smith, Fendi, Armani, Dior..... Pretty damn cute if you are rich enough not to care when your little one throws up all over their $200 dress.
This is a great site if you are game enough...

I think this label might just be my favourite.
Its completely classy always. And it holds a soft spot for me as my first ever designer piece was a gorgeous Prada handbag.
It was my baby. It cost more than my first car.
I did buy it from the first ever open Prada store (Milan). That makes it history right??
It was an incredible experience making a purchase like that. Unfortunately for my bank account it has since become an addiction. The service is amazing! It does take forever for them to ring it through, but the champagne while you wait make its worth it.
Despite the lack of sleep for the week following the purchase, i adored my baby, and felt a million dollars when i wore it.
Its rather tattered these days, but at least its loved.

Up until recently my wardrobe was entirely black. Perhaps it represented where i was at in my life.
I was forced to introduce colour after being gifted my first designer pieces. They were too beautiful to let sit in my closet.
I still prefer dark muted colours, but every now and then i feel brave.
Today i did floral.
Dress - $40 Guilt & Co. Consignment Vancouver
Jacket- 30 pounds River Island UK
Shoes - 150 pounds Kurt Geiger
Fashion is my life.
Its not everything but its a lot of it.
I have way too many clothes, and i suffer terrible anxiety when getting dressed in the mornings. When i walk in to a store. When i read fashion mags/blogs and when i see people wearing things i love.
My problem is i want it all. I love it all. I've tried desperately to control it to no avail.
This is who i am.
I love fashion, i love art, i love music, i love people, i love beautiful things and i love to create.
This blog is to simply to express myself through my art.
