Bullet Bag

Amy’s beautiful bullet bag by Wendy Nichol, sitting pretty in her light filled studio. Amy always has the best accessories to compliment her understated wardrobe. Delicate jewellery and incredible bags which are cool without being obvious. Much like this Wendy Nichol bag – the supple leather, the perfectly formed shape, and the subtle details – it’s all so good.

Leopard Legs

Some leopard legs on my way back from a lazy Sunday breakfast recently. Easily one of my favourite weekend rituals – much like the rest of this city – it’s all about breakfast here in Sydney. Although yesterdays breakfast was a lot more casual; wearing trackpants to the cafe at the end of my street. The food was delicious (as evidenced on Instagram) with an array of drink options, extra sides and conveniently close to home.

I’m meeting my better half in Europe a month, so I’m trying to get my arms (and legs) out as much as possible before I enter the bitter cold of winter. I’m sad to be leaving an Australian summer behind, but I’m getting quite into the idea of building a winter wardrobe in a place where big coats, layers of cashmere and huge scarfs wrapped around my neck multiple times are actually justified.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet Caroline Polacheck (one half of the Chairlift duo) while she was in town on their Australian tour. I shot a small portrait series for Vogue’s Style Spy; it was super relaxed and Caroline styled herself as we played around in the afternoon light. She was a total babe, uber cool with style unlike anyone else (the day before she had just raided Lowes and picked up a bunch of fluro vests). If you’re not familiar with Chairlift’s synthpop sound, I suggest you get acquainted. See the rest of the shoot over at Vogue here.

Elke

I first met Sydney-based jewellery designer Elke Kramer last year when I was shooting behind the scenes of her AW12 collection, which featured an impressive group of influential and inspiring Sydney women. The women all brought their own energy and creative aesthetic to the table, and the results were super beautiful and appropriately Elke.

Elke has carved out a solid identity for her namesake brand; bold, graphic and always unique. Worn best by the girl who knows how to pile on jewellery and look effortlessly cool while doing it.

Elke’s personal style is like the perfect mish-mash; unlikely fabrics and contrasting prints which are made for each other. I’m in love with her tight curls (which have been blonde, pink and many shades of red). Rather than me regurgitating Elke’s tale of success, check out her site here.
