At Chadstone they currently have a mini exhibit of some costumes from Sex & The City. Here are some of my favourite ones. It was great to see the exhibit, however I’m not sure that they were all the actual originals. I’m not sure whether they’re supposed to be…
Photo 1 is Carrie’s dress from season 6, episode 20 (Paris) it’s by Versace Haute Couture.
Photo 2 is the lovely Chanel Scrabble Bag.
Photo 3 is the amazing Manolo Blahnik’s that I want along with the wardrobe that they are in in the actual scene when we first see them!

Hey, I’m back. I wasn’t planning on being back so quickly but I just couldn’t stay away.
I just took these photos. The first one is some illustrations I’ve been doing with watercolor and the DVD’s I’ve been obsessed with. “The Day Before – Loic Prigent”. They’re so good. It’s basically the 36 hours before a fashion show for particular designers. I think I’ve almost watched them all.
The second photo is some beautiful fabrics I bought at “The Fabric Store”.
And the third is the new Gorman a/w 13 look book. I like Gorman’s prints, they also have really comfortable shoes. My faves from the lookbook are the; Ellie malin + gorman collage landscape pant and the unique new york dress.
Hope you’ve all had a great week and hope you have an amazing weekend. Much love. Juliet x
Who doesn’t love selfies? I sure do :p
(all these photos were taken by me using my iphone and i edited them using instagram.)
There was no foto friday yesterday because I actually didn’t take many pictures while I was at home sick. But there will definitely be many for you to see next Friday.
Here are some of the clothes I got from Marcs for staff allowance. They seem a bit basic, I guess that’s because they are. I would have preferred the red skinny jeans instead of the black but I needed new black jeans. The cotton knit is a really lovely colour and i especially love the specks of red and blue through it. The black dress is kind of a tradition. I do love black, and I do love dresses, but now it’s become like a tradition. Each time we get a clothing allowance I have bought one black dress, i’ve got four of them now. I’ll do a post on them one day soon.
“In the beginning is the sketch. That’s our Word. That is what leads, what remains is the referent. Then, there is the pattern, which allows assessment, interruption, continuity. Then, the fabric, which marks an essential stage, the stage of boldness and risk. Finally, the model arrives, which takes its first tentative steps before joining the others, to form the collection.”
That excerpt is from the book pictured below. Yves Saint Laurent. I just borrowed it from the library. It’s one chunk of a book. It’s filled with images and commentary. Some kind of insight in the world of YSL, what he did, who he was, where he was and so on.
I keep reading more and more about fashion and it so exciting and interesting. So many beautiful creations. I’ve only got about two more weeks until I start my course. I can’t wait!
This is one cool guy. I’ve been following his blog for quite some time and have his first book. His second book only just recently got released. His little notes in the new book i think are very valuable bits of information. There’s a link to his blog on the right side of my blog and also a link for Garance Dore who is his gorgeous partner.
As I mentioned we had our first book club meeting last night. It was so much fun. I don’t think any of us had been in a proper book club before so it was interesting. Just before I met the girls I spent a few minutes googling ” How to start a book club”. There are some good tips. Tips that I think are important are:
Juliet’s Tips on Starting a Book Club:
- Decide who you want to be in your book club and invite them. (There are five people in the book club that we started. One of them was sick on the night )
- Pick a name for you Book Club. Not super important but it makes it more fun. Ours is called ” Bitches, Burgers and Books”.
- Choose a meeting place. Can be anywhere you like. Your house, other peoples house, the park, local cafe’s, restuarants etc. We met up at 1000 Pound Bend.
- Decide on how often you’d like to meet and how long to read the books for. We will be meeting monthly, so we’ll have one month to read the chosen book.
- Figure out what kinds of books you all want to read or like to read. My friends and I were lucky because we all pretty much enjoy reading the same books. We’re going with mainly Non-Fiction, Culture, Fashion, Biography, History…stuff like that.
- Decide on how to decide what books to read. We came up with one person designated each month to suggest three different books then we all vote on which book to read next. Our next book will be: Patti Smith- Just Kids.
- Then just read, read, read. We will obviously meet in a month and discuss the book, what we thought about it, did we like it, did we not…etc etc
I have a few things that I want to blog about and I want to bring back photo friday but i actually don’t have time to do those posts right now so I thought I’d just tell you about something a bit fun. A couple of my friends and I are starting up our own book club. We only have four members plus one part-time member for now.
I’ve done a bit of research and there are a few things we’ll need to establish, one of those being a name for the book club. I’ll let you know more about it as soon as I can, and all of you are free to follow along online via my blog.
The first book we’ve chosen is DV by Diana Vreeland:
Keep your eyes peeled and ears tuned for more about the book club!

after a lovely lunch with my lovely friend emma yesterday we popped into “the paperback bookshop”. and on the shelf i saw grace’s new book. i was excited. i knew it was coming but didn’t know it was here. i looked through and was drawn in by grace. by her cute drawings. i knew this was a book i had to have. i didn’t buy it because i thought to myself, i’d save some money and buy it online. that didn’t happen though. after seeing the book, i got curious and started googling grace again, and started reading articles and interviews and yep, i spent my little mini lunch break running back to the bookshop to buy the book. and i was so lucky. it was the last copy! and now it’s mine. and i’m going to start reading it just as soon as i finish typing. i’d like to say i’d read it all tonight but i can’t read that fast. below is a photo of me looking back at grace. such a cool book. such a cool person. i want to be just like grace when i grow up. please excuse my nails. i should have painted them this morning but i ran out of time. i hate it when nails aren’t perfect and they are like mine are right now. if i had of painted a top coat they would have lasted longer. anyway you should all find out who grace is and fall in love with her just like i have! oh and the picture below that one is of the inside cover of the book. i love it!
