I've started dressing in man-style everyday because I've been taking a bit of time away from modelling and I dont really feel the need to dress up in skirts, tights, heels. What I've learnt from this is that taking that little bit of extra effort each day to look a little more snappy really does give you more confidence in yourself. I'm really awful at following through on goals but I'm going to try to take it up a notch when it comes to dressing. That means fewer days of jeans, tees and sneakers and hopefully more regular outfit posts.
Still, this man coat is so great.

One of the most exciting things to happen to me this year was being ask to self shoot the Toi Et Moi Summer collection lookbook. It was pretty challenging with bad weather and other set-backs but the result is something I'm proud of and I'm very grateful designer to Gill from Toi et Moi for taking a chance on me. You can get hold of any of these beautiful, whimsical pieces and many more from General Pants or Bird Motel from September onwards - or for more details check out the TOI ET MOI BLOG.

How To


Love Love Love this editorial from Vogue Germany by Phil Poynter starring Maryna Linchuk. I adore the use of black and white, the wide angle lens, the movement, the high contrast natural light, the incredible setting. So much drama and an intriguing story.

Hey Mimco

Thanks so much the the girls at Mimco for sending me this incredibly beautiful handbag, which inspires me to look to post WWII fashion trends for styling. I've featured the video created by the team at Mimco which stars Emma Balfour - who's currently having career revival. Love this work.
My boyfriend helped to snap these shots - it really saves me so much time to have someone else pressing the trigger.

So very very gorgeous. I get another chance to shoot my friend Katie Ball (Priscillas) while she flits back to Oz. Amelia Axton created my favourite look, 90's supermodel styles - check her site here.
Will post styling references later.
