Nothing says put-together effortless more than a disheveled chignon. One part neat knotted bun, one part “This is how I wear my hair when I am washing my face”. Its the perfect alternative to the “Adult-going-on-toddler” top knot I wish had disappeared before it started. Your new day 3 hair style. You’re welcome.

Highly recommending all of my male friends to pretend they are 14 again and get busy with a safety pin and a lighter (or for safer results, head to their local chemist). Fill your sleepers and barley’s with personal trinkets and found objects for the full Lost Boy effect.

I can thank the men’s shows for currently wanting to wear red lipstick with oxfords and my husbands tuxedo. The overlap of the feminine touch into the masculine domain seems to not only be growing, but thriving and vice versa. From Acne’s mulleted men in drop earrings to Jonathon Anderson’s flared fatales complete with Jackie Onassis sunglasses and fur stoles at Loewe – the out of place details suddenly seem just right. Androgyny never looked so pretty.

Back in New York after a 6 week summer vacation back in Australia and already dreaming about the next beach adventure. Did I mention its snowing here? FML.

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.
