Friday the 13th Make-up ideas

Well, Friday the 13th is here…time to go to spooky themed parties and clubs. Sadly, not for this little black duck – I’ll be working – but I thought I’d drop in a little bit of Friday the 13th inspo, for those who might be gothically inclined…. Back in 2010 I did this Spooky Halloween […] Read more…

Dystopian Designers (Part 2)

post apocalyptic fashion, dystopian fashion, Mother of London

  I promised a follow-up post to Dystopian Designers part 1, so here is the second in the Dystopian Designer series. This time we look at the impossibly cool, gother-than-thou, timeless yet always on-trend,  Mother of London. Mother of London is perhaps best known for neck corsets, intricately buckled leather gauntlets and harnesses to die […] Read more…

Erskineville Interiors

Well, I’ve been remiss in updating again – because I’ve been MOVING HOUSE!!! We’re  back in Newtown, having lived 3 and a half years in Erskineville. But before I show piccies of the new place, I should showcase my interior design at the ole place, as it really was pretty spectacular upstairs with the glass-filled conversion and […] Read more…

The Hunger Games effect

I call it the Hunger Games effect. The fact is, those wondrous examples of fashion in the post-apocalyptic world – the shredded distressed jumpers, the matt leather worn-in looking leggings, the hooded draped tunics and cowl necked dresses, the drapey woollen winter coats, the rubberised fabric, the armour-looking accessories – that featured in films we love […] Read more…

East Village Loft Living

  This visit to New York, I again chose to stay in the East Village..but not in a hotel. Oh NO!!! This time, I stayed in a very stylish loft that I found on Air BnB.  Sooo much better, quieter, cheaper and convenient than a hotel. I picked an apartment that was quite minimal in […] Read more…

Dystopian Designers (Part 1)

Recently I became involved with a very cool film project, being a post-apocalyptic film in the near but run-down future with outposts under state military control (think Hunger Games).  It’s called The Cottonwood Fence. Before filming commenced, I helped style the looks for some of the characters known as the Watchers.  (If you’d like to know more, […] Read more…

New York Shopping – Century 21

  This is the first post in my series on New York Shopping. If you’re an aussie who has never been to the USA before, you won’t believe the shopping and the sales there! The shoe warehouses are a wonder to behold, but that’s not all.  Have you heard of Century 21?   My own […] Read more…

US Visit July 2014

So…I still haven’t written about the last US trip…and now, I’m off AGAIN!!!! I know, call me self-indulgent. But there is a good reason. I’m friends with musical writer Fred Sauter, and his musical Bedbugs!! was due to go off-Broadway, but by the time I’d booked my last trip, we still didn’t know dates. Well, […] Read more…
