The thing I didn’t really want to happen, has happened. It took its time, but here it is, casting a grey cloud over my day (although that could actually just be the weather). Homesickness has made itself known and I don’t like it. I’m craving salt air and a place I haven’t called home in 6 years. Even images of the Australian outback are causing me grief and If you know me, that does’t quite compute. Me + dust + super hot days does not equal a happy Victoria. So Im finding all this very strange. But I have been told that these weeks (4 and 5) are the hardest but that I’ll get there. So Im throwing myself into work, and into my favourite things (like taking long walks, being a tourist and fashion).

Yup, its also that time… Fashion week central! Currently New York is showing and I have become enamored with Ellery’s new collection (those shoes!) and A gorgeous, to-die-for gown by Jenny Packham. What Im most looking forward (and Im hoping it knocks the homesickness for six) is London Fashion Weekend. A day of parades, shopping and fun!

So here is to hoping that tomorrow, I wake up and the mental clouds aren’t hanging around. Homesickness can go jump in a lake.

Summer here in Australia is a beautiful time of the year. Its summer holidays home, lazy days on the beach and the festive season which means LOTS of parties and chances to dress up!

Im not a girl who tends to wear alot of colour, my friends have given me the challenge of brightening up my summer wardrobe. And who can resist a challenge when it involves shopping! so today when I was on my lunch break, I came across the most divine summer dress by Woodford & Co and I couldnt resist posting some pictures of their summer collection so you can all see.

Everytime I see one of Sheree Commerford’s designs in the shops, I cant help but imagine being in Miami, Long Island or even right home in Perth, sitting at a cafe by the beach. Everything about them screams cool elegance. And the summer collection is just that!

So here are a few of my favourite designs from the summer 2009 collection….the pink and orange “Just Divine” dress is next on my shopping list!

Im currently living in a state that has been ravaged by the most terrible bushfires that Australia has seen.
To all those people effected by this terrible force of mother nature, my thoughts are with you.
