The team at Neuw were kind enough to send me some of their products. There is just something about their jeans and shorts that are truly magical. They really know how to make them fit every part of your legs.
When talking with the director of Neuw, Richard Bell, he told me they have been extremely busy with the beginning stages of the brand and also very busy developing new ranges and getting their label out there, In Australia and abroad. So, I am very grateful they took the time out of their busy schedule to send me three rad products.
I wore the Vintage Cheeky (first and second photo) shorts yesterday when I met up with my friends for coffee on their lunch break and they loved them! I then went shopping because I was trying to find the perfect top for a pair of white cotton shorts I bought the day before (I found a really nice top- so don't stress)...Moral of the story: I got lots of compliments on the shorts yesterday, and they happened to sell the shorts at the store where I bought the top. The shop assistant said she was going to try them on after her shift finished.
It's good to see that Neuw are doing well.

Stumbled across a sick new blog today. The blogger/ photographer behind CHAMPAGNE HANGOVER, is Byron Spencer. He takes some pretty cool snaps.
These pics are for "Bunda Boutique" (jewelery range) and they feature his sister Alexandra. What great genes. Model and photographers in the one family!
Glad I found it!

Kate Moss has been doing collections for Topshop since 2007, and her 14th collection, will be her last full collection for the brand. Here are some snaps of her last collection!
The feel of the collection is much like Kate's own style. Lots of bohemian floral prints, sequined pieces, little tweedy capes and vintage-inspired dresses...Plus that awesome cardigan (see photo three).
November 2nd is the release date! Melbourne Cup day!

Since when did Sportsgirl do recycled/ vintage clothes? Like legit, reworked clothes. Not a fake looking vintage line, a la General Pants a couple of years ago. When I was in Byron over the weekend I saw that there was a "Recycle It" section of hand-picked vintage finds which they claim to have been sourced from around the world. I can't really tell you much else as it's hard to find out information. But, i do know a small amount of other Sportsgirl stores are offering a similar range (Chadstone, Bourke, Bondi, Doncaster and Booragoon Stores).
Vintage clothing has reached an all time high. Everyone is wearing it, which i think is absolutely awesome. I just found it quite bizarre that a large retail company is getting on board and charging around $60 for vintage, reworked Levis....When you can go to a local op-shop or local markets and purchase shorts yourself and do a D.I.Y job for a quarter of the cost they're charging. It's really not that hard.

I haven't seen this model before. I just stumbled across her on Stockholm Street Style and I really dig what she has on in a lot of these photos. The clear shoes and boots are by Cheap Monday from their SS 2011 collection. They're insane! I rememeber thinking that when I saw the photos from their show. What do you guys think of them?
