When less is more - aka. Why I love Lara!

oh Lara. I love you. I want us to be BFF's and go shopping together and giggle over lattes in some beatnik little Bondi cafe. When I heard you were sporting fake Chanel tattoos on your chest I admittedly was a little concerned, but when checking out the pics from last nights 'Allan Border Medal', I have to say, I was eating my words.

Draped in a Michelle Jank gown, this girl definately knows how to 'do classy'. In a world full of WAG's who seem to think that dressing like a hooker-showgirl is the way to go, Lara, is the breath of fresh air we are all screaming for!

If the rumours are true, Miss Bingle is looking to eventually launch her own clothing line, a-la Kate Moss for Topshop - and if her fashion forward ways are any indication, it will be a clear success!

On a side note, is it just me, or do those tattoos remind anyone of Nicole Richie's rosary tattoo? Adorable!

Au Naturale?

Im not sure if this is a sign of the times, but Ive noticed a lot of girls rocking a more natural look of late. Im talking natural coloured hair (and in some cases obvious regrowth, think stylist Pip Edwards) and thicker eyebrows, a-la Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo of 'The City' fame.

Fashionistas are embracing this look with full force and I tend to wonder if there is a link somehow, to the Global Financial Crisis? Its much easier to maintain a low fuss look, skipping a few hairdressing and wax appointments - all in the name of style, when its hurting the budget much less.

Take myself for example - I've managed to avoid a colourist for the last 5 months - although somehow I use this as an excuse to buy more clothing! Ahh well, ce la vie!

Whereis the Party?

While many of you were sinking a few beers & heating up the barbie on Australia Day Eve, I had the fortune of experiencing the craziest party Melbourne had seen in a long time - The Whereis Secret Paint Party!

Guests were asked to RSVP - not knowing what the theme of the party would be, only to receive a paint splattered parcel in the mail a few days later, containing a protective jumpsuit and a website to look up closer to the date.

Two days before the event, the location was announced and .... well you'll have to watch the video to see how it went!

Enjoy! Oh, and Im still trying to get the paint out of my shirt!
