GOLDENTIME by Zimmermann

Fashion

Sisters Nicky and Simone ZIMMERMANN founded their namesake brand in Sydney, Australia in 1991.


Is anyone else dieing from the latest Zimmermann collection or is it just me? I’m not a massive fan of runway rundowns but sometimes videos speak a million words, sometime in a more enjoyable format, so enjoy.

3 people bringing embroidery back

Design

Fact #8: The earliest example of embroidery was found in China from the 5th -3rd century AD.

We might know it as something gran does but embroidery has always been close to my kitschy heart and when there is amazing work out there killing it, I need no nostalgic excuses to embroidery crush on these 3 artists:

Sarah K Benning: I don’t know how she so convincingly embroiders plants and scenes, I just know I want a piece of it on my wall. He website stocks patterns, patches and wall pieces so you can be as involved in the creation as you like.

Tessa Perlow: From the botanical to the rad and details, Sarah covers a vast style spectrum and a price spectrum to match. You’ll find her work on Etsy or worn of clothing she up-cycles.

Sophie King : has a bad ass social cause vibe about her work and we love it though some of her subject matter is more for grown ups. Patches, pins, prints and clothing with her signature slogan can be found in her shop. Her sequin pieces are pretty amazing too

 

Little Rooms

Fashion

Fact #1 : ” In 2002, it was estimated that if current rates of human destruction of the biosphere continue, one-half of all plant and animal species of life on Earth will be extinct in 100 years.”

Little rooms certainly hold big things. For now I’ll ignore the fact there is a voluntary human extinction movement because who needs that kind of “Debbie downer” in their life, and focus on the amazing pieces of jewelry Little rooms produce. From chic earrings, to signet rings and all things UFO, their jewelry is (I’m going to say it) out of this world. We must have one…. each preferably, time share jewelry is not going to work out.

Mischelin star cup noodels

Food

Fact #2 : There is a cup noodle in Japan technically considered “a very food restaurant in it’s category” as it has it’s own Mischelin star.

Cup noodles are a student staple and rightly so. They are cheap, easy to make, and typically hold the minimal nutritional value required to sustain life. K-dramas make them seem like a pretty tasty option too but Nakiryu dandan noodles takes it to the next level.

They retail for about 200 yen (AU$2.30) and here is where the good news ends. Sold in Japan, the next time your friend says “I’m going to Japan, want anything?”, you know what the answer has to be!

5 Insta famous people you might not be following but should

Fashion

Fact #3 : Insta-famous is a term coined as early as 2012 to describe ”influencers on instagram”  , Urban dictionary considers them ”usually a pretty girl who posts a thousand pictures of her face or whatever food she’s eating. May include pictures of other people’s food”, though this is no longer completely accurate.

@sarahisinlovewith: “quirky style blogger and pink haired flamingo queen”. That’s a pretty accurate statement from her fairy floss pink hair to her pom pom tipped feet. She’s a blogger and her fun aesthetic is visible in every shot.

@afashionnerd: “Wes Anderson inspired style”. This self professed fashion nerd manages chic and crazy colourful all in one bound. I don’t know how she finds all the amazing things she does in LA but her account certainly convinces me I can pare back and still have fun.

@mstr_of_disguise: Ann-Marie Hoang is a wardrobe stylist with a cute tiny tot in tow and a bit of an aspirational follow. Her effortless cool is next level but definitely not intrinsic or sustainable for everyone. However it is fun to know you can wear cowboy hats, septum rings, crazy shades, chic coats and ikea bags if your heart so desires.

@dianarikasari: Diana is a mother, author, designer, owner, blogger and curator of a very cool personal wardrobe. It makes me tired just thinking about it but she’s been blogging for a long time and is open about the challenges she faces.  On the day to day you can see her cool outfit, fun spaces and adorable munchkins.

@snitchery: “draco malfoy in a matte lip” is a bit of an indicator of this mythical persona creating make up queen. Her looks are edited and stylized so not the sort of get up you might casually master to go to the shops but the results are awe inspiring.
