you really gotta hold on me

So we have developed an unhealthy obsession with Zooey Deschanel and M. Wards duo She & Him. Kitty wants to marry M.Ward and I want to be Zooey! Their album is on constant rotation in the shop and I am still not sick of it so it must be love! How amazing is she live?!

Kitty found this super-cute clip filmed by two girls "Olivia K + Mary C" dancing to Lykke Li sweet song, I can't help wishing I was twirling in a vintage frock! They haven't made any others but I think they should!

I still love Roisin Murphy's clip "You know me better" it came out last year but it made me want to embrace the ruffle corsage and tulle hats. I actually remember reading that you can make them out of those fluffy bath sponges. I should find that magazine and maybe do a DIY project! Happy weekend! xxx

Who would play you?

I was watching One Tree Hill the other day (hey, no judgement!) and Lucas was casting all his friends in the movie he making of their lifes (oh if you haven't wathced this season its like 5 years in the future and Lucas is engaged to Peyton and Peyton is with child and Lucas is like a famous author and his book is being made into a movie! hahaha) This episode reminded me of how Kitty and I used to play this game when we were bored..."If someone was going to play you in a movie who would they cast?" Obiviously they can be hotter than you actually are but should probably have the same style, hair or vibe as you.
  1. If I was casting Kitty in a movie I would pick Michelle Williams or maybe Chloe Sevigny (but I think Chloe is little old now...) so maybe that french girl in that In Bruges/Harry Potter movie Clemence Posey. Kitty is pretty stylish and Michelle Williams could totally pull this off. She could be all sassy and New York chic. Yep I am feeling that!
  2. If I was going to pick someone for Mama Brite I would cast Sharon Stone or maybe Glen Close if Sharon was busy. I think Sharon Stone is way hot and Mama Brite is one foxy lady so thats pretty obvious.
  3. If I was going to pick someone for myself I it would be a toss up Zooey Deschanel or maybe Anne Hathaway. Remember they can be cooler and hotter than the real you! I think Zooey is kinda kooky and I wish my hair was cute like hers but I think Anne Hathaway is probably more me, she's a little more geekier and I really liked her in Devils Wears Prada
Who would play you?
P.S Some other games Kitty and I play is"If you were a dog what breed are you?" I think Kitty said I was a Black Labrador and I think Kitty would be one of those silky long haired french dogs I think they are called Afghans and our friend is a silky terrier- tee hee!

Yours till the Butter Flies!

Diane Von Furstenburg

Collette Dinnigan

Badgley Mischka

I went to lunch with some friends today and as I was standing at the traffic lights waiting for the green man and some 'cool' kids crossed the road and this cute 'Mary-Kate Olsen' look-a-like was wearing this outrageous butterfly printed blouse and I thought to myself- Oh Kitty was SO right!

I'll explain...we were discussing what will be in this season and Kitty was reassuring me that butterfly prints were back in and I gave her the look of doubt (which I probably shouldn't have since she has been spot on with both the 'Tie-Dye' and the 'Sequin' trends!) Well, I eat my words they are totally back and I think I am going to go home and hunt for my old red muumuu which features a huge yellow butterfly! Gosh, I loved that when I was 16 years old and was channeling a Woodstock free-loving hippy! Apparently (according to some fashion trend website I was looking at) butterfly symbolizes love, transformation, beauty, hope, resurrection, elegance, and joy. The Star was the last year motive (really? I don't think I own anything with a star on it!) and in 2009, butterfly brings the new hope to fashion lines. Ha! What do you think? Obviously designers are loving it...maybe I will come around!

Pick it Up, Twist it!

Easy-Peasy Lemon Squeezy! The Twist!

Yes, I need this hair stylists number....

So, as I said in my last post its been pretty hot in Perth and I've just had a new haircut which features a blunt fringe which rocks when the weather is cooler and less sticky. So I have been on the hunt for a new way to style my hair in a cute but humid-friendly way! I went to St Jeromes Laneway Festival a few weeks ago and I keep seeing braided fringes left right and center and I am thinking this might be the answer to my dilemma.

I don't think I've sported a plait since I was in primary school so my technique is rather rusty so I hopped on YouTube and found this tutorial title "Lauren Conrad's Side Braid Look". I have to admit (I am blushing!) I do watch The Hills and I am pretty envious of Laurens hair so I settled in to watch the video. Um...I just spent the last 1/2 hour swearing at the mirror and feeling like a goof. I don't think my fingers are nimble enough and my 'do is too short! Boo hoo!

So Lauren's hair triggered my memory to last week when I watching "The City" (yep blushing again!) and I remember thinking Whitneys hair was way cute. (If you are lost on who 'Lauren' or 'Whitney' are you must have way better taste in TV than Kitty Brite and me!!!) I think I just found my new summer hair style- The Twist! Oh and even a hair-challenged girl like me can pull this one off! I am totally going to do this tomorrow morning and take a picture, I promise!

P.S How weird are these ladies teaching these hair tutorials?! The 'Twist' girl has zero charisma she is soooo freaky!

Put your hand on your heart....

We hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday and got a kiss or a cuddle from someone special! We had another reason to celebrate yesterday it was Kitty Brites birthday so we popped down to Beck's Music Box to see Jose Gonzalez play. It was such a hot night, no breeze and really humid so our vintage outfits and our newly cut fringes stuck to our skin but we drank lots of gin and beer so everything was okay!

He was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. His version of Kylie Minogue's Put you Hand on your Heart was delightful! Kitty and I both decided we wouldn't mind having the job of the girl in Jose back up band she sat there and shook maraca and looked cute. We had a top night the only bummer was the constant stench of seafood in the still air which was coming from the food tent which we all decided was not so romantical.

P.S: Jose looked way cuter on stage maybe he should keep his shirt on but I thought it was an appropriate Valentine delight!
