So you might have seen my post about Net-A-Porter‘s amaze sale (if you didn’t you can catch up HERE)…
They now have a further 20% off sale stock! there are garments 80%off with a further 20% off…so that comes down to like, super super, SUPER cheap.
Have a look – I’ve already hit up my credit card to get those things I missed out on in round one!
They were great mates, but strangely enough Kate Moss never ever posed as the face of Alexander McQueen…until now.
I’m LOVING this new campaign. Mossy looks totes divine (kinda like Tilda Swinton!) and the attention to detail in the SS14 campaign is quintessential McQueen.
It’s a bit cool, a bit quirky and a whole lot dark. The mini-Moss dolls add an eerie, voodoo element to the shoot, which was said to be inspired by 1960’s British Thriller film, Peeping Tom.
What do you think of the new campaign? Is McQueen bang on the money? Kate Moss still got it?

Burberry has always been known for it’s iconic check print.
Usually it’s met with divided responses – some think it’s an upmarket, beautifully Brit brand, others stand firm on it’s place in Chav society.
Whether you like it or not, open your mind and check out the new heart print they’ve bought out this year….I for one, LOVE it.
Burberry Prorsum at London Fashion Week, 2013
I’m calling it now, and suggesting Heart Print is going to be a big trend in the months to come. When researching, I saw a lot of UK and international sites are stocking apparel with the print, but it hasn’t quite come over the seas just yet for us Aussie shoppers.
Never fear though, if you want to wear the print you can shop online for these items to get the look – without spending the big bucks on the Burbs.
ASOS Skater Skirt in Heart Print, $29.57 $13.86
Jean Paul Gaultier Vintage Tie Fastening Blouse @ FarFetch, USD $406.73
Black Heart Print Crepe Shift Dress @ Fashion Union, £20
Vans Authentic @ ASOS Leather Heart Trainers, $105.36
Happy shopping! x
I know what I will be doing in my lunch break.
I’ve recently moved offices and I am a WHOLE lot closer to the Sydney shopping Mecca that is Pitt St Mall & Sydney Westfield.
(Cue squeals of excited glee!)
It’s so easy, quick, dangerous… I can see the silver parts on my credit card eroding with constant use!
Imagine my delight, when I received this EDM yesterday:
There are a few things I’ve been noticing when browsing in store, and was waiting for an opportunity like this for a real bargain to be had.
It can be a risky venture, your prized item can sell out, or on the flip side, you could score it for an even bigger bargs if you pay the waiting game. Comparing the online sale to the in store stock is always tricky too, and usually not as good as the tactile sale experience in most department stores, but DJ’s have really stepped it up! There’s so much to view online, so don’t fret if you can’t make it in store before Sunday. (Free online shipping over $50 to Aussie residents!!)
Here is my guide to the sale, the best in show in each apparel and accessory category – and conveniently you can shop this as an entire outfit! 🙂
Happy shopping! And do let me know if you’ve had a sales success! xx

Sydney-siders get your skates on!
The Jimmy Choo clearance sale (up to 80% OFF!!!!) is on next week in the heart of our fine city.
Fashion Week for me was always super elite. The upper echelons of fash society sip away at their chandon and pass comment on the next genius collection from [insert du jour designer here].
The latest collections which are labelled ‘Ready to Wear’ leave me thinking about how catching the train in the morning wearing such outfits would be a logistical nightmare, and i’m left going ‘Wow, looks cool…but I don’t think I’ll ever get there.’
This year looks to be different, as London Fashion week is set to be more user-friendly and accessible to the general public.
British Fashion Council CEO Caroline Rush says that she is keen to use social media such as FB and Twitter to get people talking about the collections featured which will make the event more consumer-friendly.
“Social media lets you share messages, get it out to broad audiences. It’s a great way to get an instant response, to find out what’s trending.” She said.
LFW is making a great effort to bring the event straight to social media, with a whole heap of bloggers working in conjunction with the event organisers and live streaming of almost 30 runway shows. So, you can check out the shows from where ever you are.
I personally can’t wait for the latest Viv Westwood Red, Temperley London, Stella McCartney and Paul Smith collections to hit the runway!
Do you think it’s a good move to bring LFW to the consumer? What will be your LFW highlight?
