I heart Mister Zimi

Not because they flew me to Bali to shoot their summer campaign with (just quietly) best crew* eva...

but because her (aka Zoe Paul lovely lady behind Mister Zimi) stuff is shit hot.

on trend, made to order and most importantly ridiculously well priced leathers - she literally has it all... from bikini's to boots to bags n stuff in between.

Phoebe boots are my ultimate ultimate.

check out the entire Mister Zimi range now/here!

but if you are a touch/feel/cant buy things online kinda girl like me... then get your ass to the pop up show room....

where - The Olsen Hotel - Boutique 637-641 Chapel Street, South Yarra VIC 3141

when - Wednesday, December 8 at 12:00pm - December 12 at 4:00pm
Thursday & Friday 12 until 7pm
Saturday & Sunday 11 until 4pm


Peace out,

bloggers block

Lately i have struggled with action of the blogging variety...

i start writing ... stuff... but then never follow through and post.

perhaps it is lack of inspiration...
perhaps post bali blues...
or Maybe i just suck at blogging/ following through....

i though if i keep it simple and repost something... i might finally press "publish post" rather than just "save now".


i heart lion in love and
i heart movida
and discounts aren't bad too...

Nan + Wasson = Scanlan

Whilst in NYC recently, I was touched by the work of Nan Goldin...

Her work is raw, confronting, beautiful and evoked feelings within me that will stay with me forever...

Ten photographs/ A snippet from her previous work (The Ballad of Sexual Dependency) are currently on view at MoMA’s Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography exhibition...

At first glance her work is simplistic, but her imagery is so emotionally charged and personal it is hard not to go a journey through her highs and her lows ...

so it was a pleasant surprise to discovered that Nan Goldin had also shot my ultimate, ultimate - the stunningly stylish Erin Wasson for Scanlan & Theodore SS10 Campaign ...

Check out Nan Goldin's beautiful imagery of Erin Wasson and Scanlan & Theodore's SS10 range here...

my little pony ...

I've been rolling around town with my little pony since June this year.. only to discover recently its actually a zebra ... oops.

Zebra is a design of spell and was a gift from Luciana ... sister of spell!

I heart Spell. I discovered them a while back whilst stomping around in Byron Bay.

Lucky for you they have an online store... check it out here.

BTS | Fashion Journal #98 | Bertie Blackman Shoot

Since I heart Bertie Blackman so much ...

I thought these BTS shots from FJ # 98 shoot i did with her a while back deserved to see the light of day...

Bertie was a dream to work with....

I had met her several times... at random things... each time prior I had managed to make an absolute twat of myself... awesome... This time around though... i totally managed to play it cool and refrained from telling her about how much i love her and how i have blogged about her. Amazing!

kudos to the following for giving me clothes n shoes n accessories n stuff ... much love

peace out lainy xx

Heartbreak is good for the soul...

Apparently anyways!

Every now and then I experience a little heartbreak when "outfits" I really heart don't make the editorial cut...

Birthday Box

Ok so my birthday was some time ago now... but...

I recently received the most spot on (belated birthday) gift ever all thanks to one of the most amazingly thoughtful, considerate and caring friend/colleague....MISS EBAY!

Thank you... For not only knowing that I needed to repurchase my tool box after loosing a lonely wheel (Just between you and me ... I think she knew I kept "forgetting" my kit on shoots as it was no longer wheel-able) in THAT car crash on that hellish morning on our way to the Friends of Couture shoot ... but for also finding the EXACT same tool box (only betterera!) ... you made my day... just when I needed it most!

Seriously though, how could i call myself a stylist without my box of tools ey!?!?!

peace out,

chin down, eyes to me, relax your mouth, tilt head, shift left, arch back.... skinny arm!


to all the models out there... you (always have but forever will) have my respect and admiration... (peeps - while great models make it look easy - it really isn't !)

I recently found this out... when I unwillingly (I may have needed professional shots for something!) found myself in front of the camera ... AWKWARD!!!!! (kinda like an upside down baby turtle)


A big SHOUT OUT to the amazingly talented ladies who managed to make me look half decent...

Emily "EBAY" Abay - I really didn't give you much to work with... so THANK YOU - you truly are amazing! check out her really really ridiculously good work click here!

Monica Gingold - your application of make up skillz are incredible! your make up is freakin flawless... you are soooooo goddam good! Check out her prudy work here

It's always a pleasure working with you two... so thanking you again, I am forever grateful...

peace out
