Outfit : Discount Universe Melbourne

Its 2015 and time for our first shoot yay !!!
This year marks my fifth year of blogging and it sometimes is crazy to think I'm still on my blog game.
Anyone that knows me knows I'm a sucker for anything sparkly & mesh. This pretty thing I picked up had both.
I've been a fan of Discount Universe for quite sometime now and was lucky enough to buy this bad boy at their pop up sale.
I was pretty indecisive when I walked into this colourful glittery store of heaven but as an avid Bulls fan I was drawn to the No Bulls Mesh tee straight away.  

Wearing :
Discount Universe 'No Bulls Tee'
Grandma Funk Vintage leather shorts
American Apparel thigh high socks
Tony Bianco Boots
Asos Clutch
Slapsee sunnies

Event : Serena Williams for Berlei at Myer Bourke St Mall

I so hate I only found out about this event pretty much as it was happening.
Ahead of the Australian Open which starts today, Stars from the game have been doing appearances.
Serena Williams teamed up with Berlei's sports bra - which reduces bounce by 60%. 
Its not everyday you see a successful black women on a Australian campaign. Thanks Berlei for adding diversity to your brand. 
Love the bright colours and designs, they look amazing against her skin tone. I might have to get a pair my self. Check out pictures from the Event at Bourke St Mall & Lookbook below.

Mag Spread : Jessica Mauboy for Elle Aus

So I've been seeing these pics of Jess Mauboy floating around in the latest episode of Elle Australia. I soon realised not only did she get a spread in the magazine but she was the cover girl too. 
Why might you ask that this?
 Its not everyday you see a woman of colour, let alone an Aussie on a cover on a big fashion magazine. Last time was probably Samantha Harris for Vogue in 2010. I still remember when i got to work with her  a few years ago I told her that was one of my favourite covers vogue did because I could relate to it. I'm sure I am not the only girl out there that thought that and this cover will do the same. It will inspire and give hope to those willing to work hard to be successful no matter what they look like. 
Thank you Elle for embracing diversity.

Event : The Street Store Melbourne

The street store melbourne federation square 20th december saturday homeless

So one night on overly long Instagram scrolling session, I stumbled upon quite an interesting picture of a cardboard with a black hanger painted on it. After reading the caption and doing a little research, I discovered a wonderful event was going to take place in our city.
This Saturday 20th of December, Australia will host The Street Store - A pop up store that allows the community to hang up clothes for the under privileged. On the day the homeless will be given a chance to come down and help themselves to things of their liking.
The concept originated in South Africa and with its success has seen the event in cities like New York & London.
Now we all have clothes that we don't wear and this would be the perfect way to clean up your wardrobes and give to those to need the holiday season. 
If you want to be involved you can bring clothing on the day or drop it off at the Free Is Better offices.
So excited to be covering the event for the blog. See you at 12pm at Federation Sqaure. Be there.




Collaboration : Rihanna x Puma

So excited that Rihanna is teaming up with Puma for 2015.
 She went to Germany and signed on as Creative Director for next year.
After Solanges collab with them, I expect nothing but greatness.

Campaign : Naomi Campbell & Jourdann Dunn for Burberry

Loving the new Burberry campaign staring Jourdann Dunn & Naomi Campbell. Like Cara & Kate I love how they used the Old Queens with the new reigning ones of the generation. Its not everyday you see two women of colour for a major fashion house. There was once a time where famous designers wouldnt want Naomi for a show. She sure showed them. And now at 44 she poses with Miss Dunn 24 and still slays over the industry.

Event : Friday Nights With Jean Paul Gaultier x Remi

A rotating catwalk, interactive talking mannequins, hand sewn beaded dresses & celeb attire worn by the greats - Beyonce, Madonna & Amy Winehouse. They are just some of the highlights from the spectacular Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Fresh from his very last runway show in Paris Mr Gaultier made his way to Melbourne & set up this amazing show. The exhibition has 8 rooms with different themes. As you loose yourself in each one you walk and see theres more fashion goodness. The first room was filled with mannequins which spoke to the crowd. Amongst them was JPG infamous mermaid dress. The video showed the model limping in it with a crutch. I Youtubed it later and saw half way down the model stops and unzips the side and continues to walk normally to the end of the runway. Theres a interactive Jean Paul mannequin in there as well. The second room explores celebrity attire & corsets - Like the one Madonna was famous for (them cone boobs). The third room was my favourite. It was the Punk rock room filled with graffiti wall and a turnt up runway with mannequins on rotation.  The next room had a dominatrix feel finished with sultry red lighting. Room five had snippets of movies that featured JPG with mirrored walls and a leopard printed attire complete with a dildo LOL. The next room was huge. It was full of Couture pieces. The fine detail & time to get each piece done was so fascinating. The last room had ready to wear pieces and Hollywood red carpet type glamor. As we walked out I'd hoped that the exhibition wouldn't end and there was maybe another room or two full of Amazingness.  
After the show Melbourne rapper Remi took the stage and entertained the crowd with a few tunes. I've seen him live 2 times before and love supporting Melbourne artists.
Hip Hop & Fashion what more could the Everyday Like This girl ask for?
