So cuffs have become bigger and bigger, as one of my favourite types of accessories I can feel a new trend coming on - watch out for ankle cuffs.

These cuffs above are from a new love of mine, jewellery designer Alexandra Blak.

I CRAVE this dinosaur bones cuff but at $450 it will be a long time before I have this in my wardrobe!

I have seen a few photos floating around and Im sure this trend will be everywhere soon.

This pair of shoes is also on my wishlist at the moment;

If you’ve been spending your winter commute trawling through fashion magazines doing your spring 2012 fashion “due diligence”, you’re sure to know by now the prevailing runway trends: tribal, florals, retro and colour blocking.

This is a seemingly mixed bag of styles. But there’s one profile that runs the gamut of all these looks: the long maxi dress. This look is no longer just for that holiday in Marbella or for the vertically blessed, fashionistas of all shapes, sizes and style preference can now lead the pack this spring simply by sporting a maxi. 

Here’s a rundown of maxis to suit every trend taste:

TRIBAL:  If you were one of the hundreds of fashion-forward shoppers who queued up outside H&M to get their hands on the new collection from Marni, perhaps you were lucky enough to pick up one of the maxi dresses - if so, you may want to keep those tags on and consider eBay as it was the first piece to completely sell out. The maxi exuded that signature Marni look - ethnic aesthetic.  But if you didn’t manage to snag one, you can get the same look with one of the great maxis by South, who even do a tall maxi dress for you leggy ladies. And if you happen to be lacking in the height department, don’t worry South also carries a range of looks perfectly tailored to petites.

FLORAL: Bang on trend of course is floral. Thinking of a long maxi dress usually calls to mind images of hibiscus prints and a ruffle hems. And while that look is still perfectly on-point, there’s also more options when it comes to flower power.
From the classic patters and cuts like this gorgeous Peter Som, to more modern versions like those from BCBG – it’s really any bloom you fancy. 
When you’re talking vintage style, there’s nothing more eternally or universally flattering than a great 70s maxi, but this spring we’re seeing more eras embrace floor length, most notably the 20s. Get Gatsby-chic with looks like these incredible skimmers from Ralph Lauren, or if perhaps you don’t have quite the budget of those infamous Hampton’s hedonists, you can replicate the style with a more wallet-friendly version like this stunner by Teatro.

Last but certainly not least, one of the most eye-catching looks of the season is bold, bright blocks. And if you’re pretty mini, this look is best when you’re going maxi, as strategically placed blocks of colour can lend a slimming and lengthening effect, а la this style from South, making you look like you’ve got miles of leg and then some!

Appetite Electric: press release

An appetite for all things electric
Are we addicted to electricity? Is it possible that technology and invention have led us down a path we cannot turn back from?
In a series of urban landscapes and colourful abstracts, photographer Ebony Frost explores how electricity has permeated every aspect of our lives and how it shapes the way we see our world.

Inspired by the nocturnal subjects of her 365 photography project The Night Owl, Ebony’s first solo exhibition, Appetite Electric, part of the Foto Freo Open Programme, asks us to look beyond the elements of life we take for granted and appreciate how comfortable our lives have become because of electricity.
“I wanted to explore our insatiable need for electricity and all the advantages it affords us,” Ebony says.

“Looking at the world through a nocturnal lens made me appreciate how much richer our lives have become because we have access to electricity”.
“I was also fascinated when last year our own Premier dismissed the need for air conditioning - it made me think - have we lost the ability to cope without all the ‘mod cons’”?

Opening at the Tu Stairwell Gallery in William Street, Northbridge, on Thursday 29 March, the exhibition runs until 14 April 2012.
Ebony has been behind the lens for 10 years, with three years spent travelling the world, camera in tow, gaining an appreciation of the built environment, urban landscapes and travel photography.

Since returning to Perth, Ebony has turned her lens toward the local creative scene, shooting images for Drum Media, Kulcha and local emerging fashion designers.

Launch Night

Would have loved to have gone to the 140 Launch last night - instead I was stuck at the shops, waiting to get my car towed after it broke down!
Let me tell you, there is nothing worse! 

Of course, to cheer myself up about it today, Im heading down to the post office to pick up my new cuff!!

I got this cute starfish cuff in silver. If you want one - Haute on High is selling them for $45 - search them on facebook for more info. 

Below: Ill share with you some photos & the media release in case you too, missed out!

Vibrant pop-up village opens at 140
A lively community of artists, retailers and special guests gathered at 140 in the City last night to celebrate the effervescent official opening of the 140 Pop-up Project.

The astroturf lined laneway of eclectic pop-up studios including Zara Bryson, Father, Miss Brown Vintage, Pigeonhole, We Heart Vintage, William Topp, Andy Quilty and All Of The Above Creative was alive with the sights and sounds of sideshow alley inspired theming and in-store activities.

Highlights of the opening included acoustic guitar sets by ‘Cleo Bachelor of the Year’ finalist, Ben Swift and Zara Bryson’s own singer/songwriter, Amrit Sidhu.

At the neighbouring Miss Brown Vintage pop-up a caricaturist sketched guests styled in their favourite vintage era, whilst an air of style and glamour engulfed the We Heart Vintage pop-up as spirited shoppers sipped sparkling, indulged in chocolate fondue and browsed the store’s unique collection of vintage garments and accessories.

The 140 Pop-up Project is the first pop-up community of its kind and scale in the Perth CBD and is set to provide consumers with an entirely new shopping experience.

“Our challenge was to create an innovative concept, unique to 140 which would excite and engage our customers with the kaleidoscope of amazing independent retail and artistic talent right here in Perth,” 140 Marketing Manager Kristi Dempster said.

“We identified strong consumer interest in the pop-up concept and looked to the UK and US who had successfully hosted similar projects. Consequently, the 140 Pop-up Project was born to inject a fresh and fun perspective into Perth’s retail landscape,” Ms Dempster said.

Located on the ground floor of 140, the 140 Pop-up Project opening hours are: Mon-Thu (10am-6pm), Fri – (10am–8pm), Sat – (10am-5pm) and Sun – (12pm-5pm).
