The hunt for the perfect destroyed white t shirt continues. The problem is, once you have found the seemingly exact one you have always wanted, it is almost at the end of its life span. Having invested far too much time and money on the hunt for the outfit enhancing holy grail of cotton goodness, I have to say that New York laundromats and general wear and tear have rendered these treasures almost rags, with holes going from ideal to inappropriate. This recent Instagram post from Marie Amelie Sauve reminded me of the perfect little cut out tee Chanel did a few years back and suddenly it feels like the “new” rip. BYO razor blade and teeny tee.

Some shots from my recent story in P Magazine with the master of capturing the feminine mystique, Akila Berjaoui. Nothing says summer to me like salt water, wet t-shirts and itsy bitsy 70′s bikinis. Coconut oil on salty skin and ice blocks in the sun. We drove down to the national park just outside of Sydney to have a girls afternoon swimming, laying in the sun and sand and laughing more than working but I think we did ok.

There is something extremely enticing about a fine fitting pair of black flares right now. Don’t start warning me about the perils of puddles and rain and the cleanliness of New York streets while I indulge in this fantasy of floor skimming, leg lengthening black beauties. I admit I almost certainly do not have the lifestyle nor the vertical footage for these seemingly life altering trousers, but I feel like its only fair to give them a chance at being my new number 1 pair of pants on rotation.

A little slow off the mark to post, but its always nice when one of your favorite magazines and online platforms decides you are A Blog Worth Making A Commitment To. Its lovely to know that in the vast abyss that is the internet, someone is making space in their bookmark tab for you. Merci i-D! x

Courtney Eaton is the new Australian It girl and a welcome one at that. Starring in 2 of the biggest films to be produced down under in recent times, the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road as well as the mythical blockbuster Gods of Egypt with fellow desert warrior Abbey Lee. I had the pleasure of shooting her for the new Jan Logan campaign in LA last month and can safely say she lives up to the hype (in equal parts brains and beauty) and can’t wait to see what she does next.
