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.

Racism - "I Can't Breathe" T-shirts

They'll be a protest this weekend at Washington Sqaure Park this weekend in NY in the mist of all the tragic deaths of Black males in America by White Cops. Before we take the blog back to America i thought I would do a post on what is going on there at the moment. Its all over the internet. Protests, Riots all peaceful of course with cops getting away with killing men of African American decent.
On our first week in NY we heard the terrible murder of Mike Brown had taken place. 
On the flight home we had to take a plane to LA to connect to our international flight.
After safety videos, seatbelts and taking off everyone connected to the tv screens. 

I kid you not on every news channel were the peaceful protests happening in Ferguson, Missouri. I was so shocked to see so much coverage on this. While everyone was watching tv shows and movies I had my head stuck into the news and was intrigued to see the people of American come together and   fight for justice and coined the phrase "Hands Up, Don't Shoot".

Recently a man by the name of Eric Garner was arrested and there was a cop who had him in a choke hold (which is illegal). The man had repeatedly said "I Can't Breathe" in the video but was ignored and later on passed away. The police who had him got away scout free. Again. There have been protests all over the country and all over the world in support of Eric Garner and the special treatment of white police men in the US.

Even though The Aussie news didn't really show much the internet flooded with posts. Celebrities from all races showed their support and demanded change. 
Over the last few weeks some powerful sport stars from the NBA such as Derrick Rose, LeBron James & Kevin Garnett were seen wearing "I Can't Breathe" T-shirts before their games.

The way fashion can start movement without having to say anything is one of the many reasons I started blogging. Lets hope with all the attention and support that things change and justice is served.

Outfit - Alexander Wang x H&M

Whats worse than having the sun burn your eyes in a shoot? Shooting on a humid 30 something degree day in Melbourne. Wish I checked the weather before planning this one. The sweat went well with the sports luxe feel of the shoot so I guess it all worked out well in the end.
Here we have the second part to our Alexander Wang shoot. 
Shot in the back streets of Pharan.
I was originally planning on doing the shoot in overalls but after coming home one day and changing into my trashy trackies from K-mart, I discovered they actually matched my crop perfectly.
Paired them with my Raybans & Steve Madden heels.

Outfit : 25 in Alexander Wang

This is a special shoot to me for many reasons.
A new hair do
New designer threads.
New location.
And a new age.

This shoot was shot on the day of my birthday which is something thats never been done on the blog so I'm blessed I could have these moments captured.
The day before it went from being so hot to raining and stormy (typical Melbourne) so I was quite concerned to if the shoot would of even been possible.
A few days ago I was lucky enough to go to the H&M to get my hands on the Alexander Wang Collection.

Enjoy the pics below shot with our beautiful Melbourne skyline in the background.

Kim Kardashian Arrives in Melbourne November 2014




Kimmy landed has landed in Melbourne ahead of her Perfume appearance at Chadstone Fashion Capital tomorrow at 4pm. The event is apart of Chadstones well known VIP nights. 
Last time Kim Kardashian did an appearance was at the shopping center down the road from me. 
You can see the post from her Southland appearance here.
This is not Kim's first trip to our country this year. She was here earlier with Hubby upon his Yeezus Tour. Probably one of the best concerts I've been to.
