Gala on the Green

I am 99% confident that this dress is up in my top 3 when it comes to favourites in my wardrobe. Being that it is not your every day dress, it was great to have a new occasion to get frocked up, the last being my 21st. The Gala on the Green Charity Ball’s theme this year was fire and ice – not sure…

The Diva’s Wardrobe

Held a couple of times a year, this event unites divas with enviable wardrobes with those suffering wardrobe envy – a marriage made in heaven. We had heard about it through Instagram and Facebook posts bragging of legendary hauls but were always otherwise engaged… until last Sunday. We saw from Fashionista Events (register for updates in your city!) that the Diva’s Wardrobe was planned, so we saved the date…

Wednesday 2 weeks ago we trotted our little bottoms along to the Scrunch Brisbane Launch at The Kitty in the Treasury Casino and we had an absolutely lovely time. Chocolate fondue and marshmallows for breakfast? If you insist.. ; ) Not only were we delighted to network with fellow Brisbane bloggers, we also got to use this as our own mini…

For many years, A had an Ekka hiatus however in recent years, rediscovered her ‘big smoke’ fascination with blue ribbon winning animals and vegetables of all shapes and sizes. Here are some snaps from…

First Past the Post

It seems time has slipped away from us these last few days. It might just be us, but the cold weather seems to make everything move in slow-motion. This outfit is from a little while back. It was actually taken the day after we arrived back from NY. I always love going to the races! All the pretty horses thundering…

A Spot of Culture

While B was soaking up some sun at Stradbroke Island during last week’s long weekend, A made her way to the Brisbane Powerhouse for some eats and drinks and to have a look at World Press Photo ’14, an exhibition showcasing award-winning photojournalists from around the globe. A very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. A wears Leather Tank Marc Jacobs…

Last Saturday night we geared up for the MBFWA Weekend Edition show. Sounds fun right? Much more fun than our current Saturday situation, baking for tomorrow’s Easter festivities. Below are some of our favourite looks from the runway. Please try to look past these blurry excuses of photographs and see the sheer magic of these beautiful clothes from some of Australia’s…

James St Up Late

James St Up Late –  the once a year night of fashion and fabulousness. Champagne while you shop, plus discounts – it’s certainly worth staying up late for! A mammoth amount of work must go into organising an event like this, so although we numbered but two of the hundreds that thronged the James Street footpaths, we feel justified in speaking…

Gen Fashion

We love fashion. We love Australian fashion. Best of all, we love designers from Brisbane. Is it silly to feel proud? That was certainly one of the emotions we experienced at ‘After Darkly’, the 2013 QUT fashion grad show. The show was split into 3 acts; Into The Light, Urban Dreaming and She’s A Rainbow. We’ll let the pictures speak…
