Every time I ever see Kate Waterhouse, she is always impeccably dressed. She sticks to the classics, favouring well tailored pieces and a healthy dose of black. There’s definitely something to be said for having a formula to your personal style.
I’m in love with her Alexander Wang heels; they are such a sexy shape and the cut-out leather is beautiful. All of his past season heels (including the style Kate’s wearing) are now on sale pretty much everywhere, and I’m rather tempted by the pointed pumps I shot Candice wearing here. They may not always be comfortable, but Mr Wang does know how to make great shoes!
Natalie Joos is one of those people who you secretly want to be friends with. She documents her encounters with some of fashions most interesting characters on her blog Tales of Endearment, with her own distinctly quirky-cool voice. Her blog has a lot of content from her time in Australia up at the moment, so if you’re not already reading it, now is the time.
Natalie exudes this incredible confidence and charisma, which only makes her killer style more attractive. I shot her a few times at Australian Fashion Week, the first of which was after Romance was Born when a horde of street style photographers also vied for her attention. Despite the fact that we had never meet before (although I’m sure once you’ve met one street style photographer you’ve met them all), Natalie was ridiculously lovely to shoot.
Her personal style is very colourful and eclectic, so it was a pleasure to learn that this playful attitude is a reflection of her inner self. Fashion isn’t meant to be serious, and it’s so great to watch people really have fun with it!
Parlour X is one of the few truly international fashion boutiques in Sydney, owned by the amazing Eva (whom I have shot before here); it’s one of those places were you find pieces you can nowhere else. Where you find a whole delicious rack of bohemian Isabel Marant alongside print-tastic Peter Pilotto and sexy Alaia.
It’s no secret that online shopping allows us to purchase whatever our heart desires from almost anywhere in the world, but it has to be said that traditional boutiques do offer tangible experience that cannot be emulated. There’s just something so special about walking in the door and stroking that new season Balenciaga I may not be able to afford, but want in my hot little hands nonetheless.
A good part of Parlour X’s allure is Eva. She has this bold, charismatic personality that draws you in and get’s you talking passionately about anything and everything. There’s a real fire in her heart and it rubs off on whoever is near. Eva’s wardrobe is ridiculously amazing, but it’s the way she wears it is what impresses me most. Stylish, but a true original.
Supreme hat, RayBan Wayfarers, Kahlo dress, Miu Miu boots
I don’t have a sporty bone in my body, but somehow this whole sport inspired trend that’s doing the rounds at the moment has found it’s way into my wardrobe. I’ve gotten plenty of wear out of my Supreme cap since I got it online last year; the navy wool goes with everything and is perfect for hiding ones face when you’re feeling a little worse for wear. And this raglan dress by Kahlo is another favourite; the cotton is super soft, and the way it falls on the body is nothing but comfortable. I may be a little late to the sport-luxe party – I don’t yet own fluorescent sneakers – but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.
