Rue Stiic

If you follow Rue Stiic on Instagram you’ll know that their pics make you dream of long, hot Summer days spent drinking cheap beer on the beach, surrounded by good looking people being generally cool for just… being.

The Rue Stiic story is “Inspired by the alley ways, boutique streets, and beach culture of Venice Beach to the easy going, niched fashion culture of Australia, Rue Stiic is a lifestyle brand that embraces fashion, art, surf, and music.”

I say their collection is pretty much the perfect line of basics and true to their essence they’re supporting the bricks and mortar retail sector by only stocking their line at a few key locations around Perth. Rue_Stiic_andalusia Rue_Stiic_bohowinter2 Rue_Stiic_drape Rue_Sticc_drapebacks Rue_Stiic_kimonowinterlayer Rue_Stiic_skate Rue_Stiic_stripedlongsleeve2

On My Mind 28.04.13

On My Mind

1. The amazing collection by Hungary label, Nanushka. That skirt, that skirt! (first seen here)

2. The impending arrival of my new glossy arm swag. I’m just ignoring the fact that Baby G decided to make Kesha the face of their line.

3. Realising that the little white powder is in fact bad for you, and quitting sugar is an inevitable reality I should just face up to.

4. My continuing obsession with finding a luxe to less version of the white lace Dolce & Gabbana dress that Dree Hemingway wore.

5. Being onto my third tube of Nars’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine.

6. Temples and sunsets in far away places.

I hope your weekend has been magical xx

MBFWA 2013 My Favs

My Twitter feed and Instagram have been filled with nothing but MBFWA action over the last week and I’ve loved every minute of it. So I thought I’d share a wrap up of my favourite looks. The stand out collections for me were Aje who showed muted tones and pretty pastel prints on some gorgeous gowns and Ginger & Smart who kill it every time.

There was some lovely clean tailoring from labels By Johnny and we will no doubt see inspiration from Ellery’s structured pieces throughout the chain stores this Spring/Summer. Surprisingly, I found Manning Cartell a little underwhelming this year.

What did you love this year?

I love wearing heels, there is nothing that really finishes off an outfit like a good pair of heels. But by god, I love flats too. I do a fair bit of dashing around to and from meetings during the day and a lot of times a pair of heels just doesn’t cut it for practicality. And I didn’t realise until cleaning out my shoe collection the other day just how much I wear my flats into the ground.

That’s how I justified these little babies. Perfect for corporate or casual!
