Clare and I put these clips together for the launch of Alana Blanchard’s Bikini line for Rip Curl. The collection consists of two ranges – the ‘Alana’s Closet’ and the ‘My Mirage’.
The My Mirage is good for when you’re cutting laps, beach walking and most importantly surfing. This is a bikini that stays on without actually cutting in and giving you love handles and supports you without making your neck hurt (thanks to a criss cross back). I know I put together these clips – but in all honesty I’m just stoked to find a bikini that you can actually get out there and do something in. I look crap in one pieces – and I like to look good even when I exercise – so sue me.
The Alana’s Closet on the other hand are for girls that prefer a sexier cut. And as a strong believer in the old saying ‘less is more’ – I can highly recommend these. Just waiting for the sun to actually come out so I can soak up some rays… and begin tanning my white arse in hope that one day I will look like this…
It’s been so long since I’ve blogged that I haven’t even posed this job that we did for the gorgeous Lucy and her brand – Hunting for George. We hit up Brighton Beach one Saturday and made the models from Epic eat ice cream and and watch the sun go down. Clare shot, I produced and Project Managed while Lucy styled. Why? COS WE CAN.
Totes feeling lucky right now. The lovely Amy Bennison chose me to share her prize after winning an insane comp through LifeStyled – a blog written by Paula Joye (ex editor of Cleo and Madison). We spent the day shopping with Paula at Westfield Doncaster where we each had a $1000 to drop (OMG – I know – awesome). After which we had our Hair & Makeup done by Tony Reynolds and his right hand woman Cynthia. Followed by front row seats at the Alex Perry Fashion show and a night at the glamorous Sofitel Melbourne. All thanks to the Lexus CT 200h. Three cheers to that. Paula unleashed my inner Kei$ha and made Amy purchase pieces outside her comfort zone. Check out some snaps.

It’s been a year since I bought a pair of jeans and I underestimated the effect a new item of clothing would have on me and my wardrobe. It was like when you’re craving food and you just don’t know what it is… you keep eating but nothing ever satisfies – until you hit upon the flavour you desire. I didn’t realise why I was feeling so lack luster until Dr Denim and his Jamie Olive Jeans jumped out and slapped me in the face while I was in General Pants on Saturday.
Dr Denim, you gave me and my wardrobe that adrenaline injection that we needed. And then I visited your website and fell in love with your brand. Dr, your website is cool, your photography is even cooler and you make my arse look rounder and perkier than Cheap Monday. You’ve got me. Aaahhh. I’m going to go down the street in my new jeans.
Traditionally I try and stay away from shoes with no back strap. Being hideously clumsy when sober, I’m revoltingly-so two wines down… so needless to say shoe selection is crucial. However, these look so practical. Not too high as to break an ankle – but high enough to take a couple of kilo’s off. Everyone’s wearing them. Me thinks I will join the Funkis club.
