RIP Malcolm McLaren

“It is better to be a flamboyant failure than any kind of benign success”
– Malcolm McLaren

Malcolm McLaren, aged 64, died yesterday (Thursday 8 April, 2010) after a long battle with cancer.
The former Sex Pistols manager, fashion designer, art school drop-out, musician, ex-boyfriend of Viviene Westwood, and proclaimed icon of the ‘Punk’ movement and will be sadly missed by the fashion and music communities, and fans spanning across the globe.

Party sparkles from Sportsgirl

Totally loving these sequin jackets from Sportsgirl. Their super H-O-T, reasonably priced and perfect for adding a bit of bling to an otherwise simple outfit. Throw them on over your work clothes and you’re ready for Christmas drinks, or team them with a funky top and a pair of short shorts.

I love the first combination… reminds me of Ke$ha in the totally awesome ’80s do-over video clip for Tik Tok.

This Dhini sequinned jacket can blow my trumpet any day!!

No words, nor music, can describe how much I love, want, die for, must have and desperately need this Dhini jacket.
Maybe I should invest in a lotto ticket, cross all fingers, toes, legs and arms in hope, and pray to all the Gods that somehow it magically appears in my wardrobe.

Anyone know where Jeannie is hiding these days? Because I dream of this jacket!

A Very Fashionable and Fabulous Top 10 Friday

It’s been ages since I did a Top 10 Friday… and yet they’re so much fun! This one promises to be fashionable and fabulous. Enjoy…

1. The spring fashion shows are nearly here. Go to ‘Must See and Do Events’ – Hurry, tickets sell fast

2. Vogue Australia is celebrating its 50 year anniversary. Grab your limited edition boxed copy now, or pick up one (or all) of the four covers featuring Cate Blanchett at your local newsagent

3. Melbourne designer, Teal Talbot of Friend of Mine has released her debut collection, Opposites Attract. This label is going to be huge. It’s super cool and simple, yet has incredible elements of crazy detail or embellishment. Wear as is, or jazz up with other fave pieces. I love, love, love the leather peep toe wedge boots! Now available at Down Yonder

4. If you blink three times, the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival will arrive (well not really, but you know what I mean). Time to start seeking out that fabulous dress. Keep an eye on the fashion shows and visit your fave stores to check out their look books*

5. Check out New Zealand jewellery line, Kagi. I’m totally in love with the Infinity Links Gold Bracelet (so much so that I made it my August Hero)

6. Grab a coffee at Porgie and Mr Jones. I truly love this place (and the hot waiters)

7. Listen to Phoenix’s album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. This band never disappoints. My fave tracks are Lizstomania and Rome

8. Seriously, if you haven’t seen Pink’s Funhouse tour – try and get tickets. So good!

9. Steal Kate Moss’ style with your very own LNA Sidetail V-Neck tee – now available at Miijo.

10. Read
Fallen – this beautiful magazine celebrates and seeks out all things creative… and Australian.

Happy Friday! Remember, be fashionable and fabulous – be you.

Simply fabulous… It’s Top 10 Friday!

Toff it up for The Ashes with this tee and brooch, teamed with jeans and a blazerSass and Bide – A Pocketful of Dreams

What an exciting week! Tahnee won Australia’s Next Top Model (though Cassie got the judges vote), Project Runway Australia started and outed it’s first designer, The Ashes began… and finally, new season look books are starting to come to life with stock now arriving in store.

New seasons are great because you get the opportunity to explore. Most designers gradually introduce their range into the stores, so you can do a bit of style stalking without making rash decisions. I love planning which pieces will work with my wardrobe (and which ones I’ll need to buy a new one for).

I also love that there’s a general buzz of excitement from the sales crew about the new items. Often they’re wearing the soon-to-be-released pieces too – a tell tale sign of the great stuff coming in.

Quick Tip: During the sales check out the next season’s look books to make sure you’re not going to regret your purchases (nothing worse than wishing you had saved your money when the next season hits).

Here’s my Top 10 of what’s new this week:

1. Sportsgirl have developed a fabulous interactive website. In addition to showing off their range, they’ve got chat, music downloads and all-round fun. Have your say now

2. Souvenir Delirium II is in at Mimco. I call it modern old school, or old school modern – others might just call it mod

3. Sass and Bide‘s new range is as always truly fabulous. I’ve already been in three times this week. I love the simplicity of the Pocketful of Dreams tee, and that every season works collectively with the last

4. Project Runway Australia is back. It won’t be long before the claws are out

5. Rachel Zoe is willing to share her fashion and lifestyle tips in The Zoe Report – sign up now for updates from the Mistress of Style

6. Read Net-A-Porter’s interview with Roland Mouret – who shares three versatile ways to wear his Top Tunic Dress (TTD)

7. Hollywood’s latest denim obsession, Jet by John Eshaya is now available at Miijo

8. Bruno is out. At the cinemas (Ange and I are seeing it tonight – can’t wait)

9. The results of the Australia Beauty Awards 2009 are in.

10. Aesop release their first CD this month, Aesop 105 Minutes said to be their “respite from urban clamour”

Happy Friday!
