TRANSDUCTION

With the cooler weather quickly settling in, Tas and I realised that this week is probably one of our last chances to hit the beach. So yesterday afternoon, we had a nice little chilled hang at the beach. Tasfia wore her perfect new Aje white leather skirt. We've been looking for that perfect white leather skirt for eons now. We've had our eyes on so many different ones but we haven't been able to commit to any of them until we saw this beautiful number at the Aje sale last week. Another small slice of perfection in this outfit is the Knots and Knits clutch that Tasfia is sporting. I love how this little knotted beauty can add a pop of colour to any outfit and I love the textural element it adds too. 
I'm wearing the third piece I've bought (so far!) from Emma Mulholland's newest collection... I think I've developed a bit of an unhealthy obsession for her wicked prints

SCOTCH AND SODA

Usually delish food would've been enough to get me on board, but at the Scotch and Soda event last week, it didn't need to! Our delightful night began with a showing of the rad new Scotch and soda tent concept store in Westfield Carindale. Afterwards we shifted our party to Stokehouse, not only for some gastronomic wonders but also to preview their amazing new collection. There are so many pieces in the new collection I've feel I gotta have, particularly the delightful animal print!

EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL

Although I don't quite believe in little green men or that alien abduction/probing fluff I've always felt fascinated by the possibility of extraterrestrial life and particularly their many different representations in history and popular culture. Part for that reason and partly for its general radness, the new 'Spaced Out' Emma Mulholland collection feels right on my wavelength. I've already bought three pieces from the collection and I want more!

POP-UP AJE

There is one thing more pleasing to the ears than the words pop-up sale, and that is hearing the words ' pop-up sale' and 'AJE' together in a sentence. Tasfia and I spent last night at the VIP evening for AMAAZING Aje popup store at Haut Boheme.  I've got to say that I had a pretty hard time keeping my eyeballs in my head because the clothing pieces/prices were too good/ridic to be true. I felt super satisfied returning home with my dream dress in my bag but I still don't think I can do without visiting the sale again soon! Brisbane folk, I'd check out the sale ASAP if I were you because I have a feeling that stocks won't last long!

REPTILIA

Most prints seem to be just seasonal. They owe themselves to a trend of a particular season. Everyone wears it to death that season (including yours truly) and then after the season is over, you never want to lay eyes on that print again. For that reason, and being a huge print lover, I always try to invest in the most unique and inventive prints which transcend seasonality. This August Street ensemble (Tas is wearing) and this double Emma Mulholland ensemble that I'm wearing are just that - but in two very different ways. This rad August Street ensemble renders itself super versatile because of its stunning subtle print which means you can wear it in countless different ways. The super bold prints of this Emma Mulholland ensemble speak for themselves - I mean, how could you get sick of a basketball playing iguana?
