I don't care

What if we all just yelled a big fat
i dont care, tumblr, fashion, effortless fashion, sports, sportswear, sports luxe, trend, lesimplyclassy
I don't care, I really don't
What if I started buying crocs and wearing sweatpants to work, while waving away the haters and tying my hair up in an apple bun on the top of my head (If you know me, I almost never wear my hair up).
i dont care, tumblr, fashion, effortless fashion, sports, sportswear, sports luxe, trend, lesimplyclassy, lisa, lisa simpson, the simpsons, channel ten, tv show, favourite
Lisa don't care either
Do you think people try to achieve the effortlessly cool look, or does it just happen? I wonder if that's where the concept of sport luxe came about. I mean comfort and looking cool don't usually match but here we are wearing sneaker wedges and sport shorts to make a statement. When did wearing tights as pants equate to 'sports luxe' anyway?
i dont care, tumblr, fashion, effortless fashion, sports, sportswear, sports luxe, trend, lesimplyclassy, lisa, lisa simpson, the simpsons, channel ten, tv show, favourite, target, sneaker wedges, black sneaker wedge
I bought a pair from target for $20. Cha-ching bargain.
I could dress like this and call it fashion, you wouldn't know if I was wrong or right, you would just accept it because I don't care and that's exactly what it would seem like.  Effortlessly cool. You wouldn't know if I tried extremely hard or if I just threw it on because that's what was lying on my floor that morning.

Who cares?

Trend: All White

Back in the land of January this year, I made a post about how white is the new black. Five months later, here we are and guess what...white is the new black! Trend forecasting at its greatest folks, with evidence (here).

Exhibit 1-
Roberto Cavalli's Spring Summer 2013 Campaign featured these pieces. So white, so fierce and so true to my predictions. Can I just also say that I am absolutely loving the detail in the top on the right.

Photoshoot: Ghostly

As you may remember from THIS shoot with Alyssa Montgomery Photography, not too long ago we ventured into the abandoned mental asylum in order to get some shots. And some shots we did get! It was a freezing cold day with amazing looking skies, which always seems to be the case with my shoots but we soldiered on through the day and made it to the end.

In this case I bring you the ghostlyyyy look. Yes, the first one wasn't our ghostly look, it was actually our insane one. I promise there is a difference. The is the look in which I took it upon myself to DIY some jeans (see here). This is the final result, I'm really happy with how it turned out and I have to say Alyssa did and amazing job on the editting for these images. My favourite one is the second one in the doorway.

The styling of this shoot was a basic denim inspired, and the simple bracelets do the trick. The look was originally meant to be worn with black high heels but we thought leaving tasha's own boots would create a better rugged look suited to the scenery. The oversized baggy jeans with a simple rolled up cuff is exactly what I envisioned when I bought the jeans!

Sasha Pivovarova

My latest obsession is model Sasha Pivovarova, and when she teams up with photographer Paolo Roversi, the result is magic. A lot of the photos I've found aren't very recent, mostly dating back to around 2007, but they took my breath away and I love them too much not to share.

Staple the Label: Out of the Dark Collection

"Staple the label launched early 2009 in Sydney, as a “basics-with-a-twist” brand. A concise collection of fashion forward, relaxed yet directional pieces with a sophisticated edge, all at an affordable price. The label has evolved, introducing soft tailoring, adding inventive detail, as well as a focus on developing exclusive prints and textures.
The Staple the label design team combine high-end fashion inspiration and a translation of European trends for the Australian market. Precise attention to detail is delivered in easy to wear cutting edge styles that keep the Staple the label girl one step ahead."

 I was going through my photos from fashion week earlier this year and I came across a friends polaroid from backstage at the Staple the Label show. I was going to watch the show but I was so far back that I couldn't see anything, so I decided to go look up the collection myself. It may have been the hair and makeup for the show that really drew me in but the collection itself is pretty great.

Apart from their elegant basics, they have my favourite stand out pieces such as their cracked metallic tee, negative floral bomber and their flamingo bloom shift dress (see all below). Although it is winter, I'm seeing florals everywhere. Only thing is, rather than the traditional small floral prints, it's big floral pieces with a colourful and extremely graphic edge. And the metallic tee speaks for itself. It's not only metallic, but from what I can see it's also somewhat holographic (so on trend) and sparkly (my weakness).

Sunset

I was going through my iphone's camera roll the other day and it's a little bit ridiculous how many photos I have of sunsets. Sunsets from my balcony, sunsets at the beach, sunsets wherever I happen to be at that moment.

Sunset from my house last week

Sure it looks pretty in photos, but it's nothing compared to what actually is in front of you. How is it possible that we can have something so amazing happen every single day? What I'm trying to say is, why do we try to capture it when a) photos don't look as good, b) it happens every day and c) what is so mystifying about the sky?

Then I got to thinking about it, like really thinking about it... I don't know I was getting really deep. It hit me though, it was so obvious. It's not the sky itself, but what is beyond it. This insane universe that we know nothing about, it's ridiculous but so intriguing.

I suppose even though it doesn't look as good in photos per say, if we can grab every bit of inspiration from what is above us and make it work. I guess that's what they mean by 'inspiration is everywhere'.

Photoshoot: Grunge

I'm not sure if you remember this series a fair while back which I styled from my shoot with FADOGRAPHY, but I've recently recieved a few more images which I've put together for you!
This look is borderline grunge with the beetlejuice (I hate that word) leggings, put together with an oversized mens jumper. The bulky chain necklace and the spiked litas reinforce the hard look, and the beanie was honestly just to keep Tasha warm.. I'm kidding, I find when you have accessories all the same colour, it brings the look together, so the black in the shoes and the cat beanie and the necklace and the spikes.
Fun fact: the graffiti on the wall behind her has a massive picture of a sumo wrestler which made me laugh.
(To see other images from the shoot see Americat here, Three of Something here, Camo Sports Luxe here, and Double Denim here)
Styling: Samira and Sarah
Model: Tasha Ross
Photographer: Aneita Yang  (FADOGRAPHY)

Inspiration Post

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts as of recently, I'm going through some kind of writers block at the moment which is close to impossible to shake off. I think winter is taking everything out of me. Have some random inspiration, no theme today! TGIF xx

The Carrie Diaries: 80s Flashback

Although I was never in the era of watching Sex in the City, I took it upon myself after many recommendations to start watching the series 'The Carrie Diaries'. It's basically a prequel to Sex in the City and it features Carrie Bradshaw when she was 16 years old. I'm currently 6 episodes in and it's safe to say that I am hooked. The fashion in the show screams out accuracy with the fluoro and the poofy dresses and the plaid blazers, I even think I spotted someone in double denim in the background. But then again, how am I supposed to know how accurate that is? I am after all a nineties kid.

Vivid Light Festival Sydney

This isn't really relevent to fashion but I went to see the Vivid Sydney light festival at the Opera House for the first time last night. For those of you who haven't heard of Vivid before, they light up the whole of the Opera House (massive!!) with amazing projections, kind of like a movie. From what I remember there was a pinball game, a girl dancing through trippy light and a vinyl record, all accompanied by music playing everywhere, a dj on the bottom level and random artist light displays everywhere.

I love being in the city at night, especially when there is an actual event happening. It's literally so filled with people you can't not bump shoulders with randoms. The light displays were interactive and super fun and if you're in Sydney this long weekend, go an check it out. Vivid festival ends on the 10th of June.

Photoshoot: Insane(ly good)

On the first day of winter (a few days ago) we set out on a 10.30am start to the haunted old abandoned mental asylum in Rozelle (literally in the middle of nowhere, Sydney). I kid you not, the night before I couldn't sleep and when I finally did... I had a dream that I was possessed by some kind of ghost. Ofcourse it was a bad sign, something bad was bound to happen.
Sorry to dissappoint you but the day actually went extremely well, no one died or had to be exorcised - thank heavens. The weather was picture perfect all the way to the end when it rained on us catching the bus home.
We also had an amazing team for this shoot and it's the perfect addition to my extremely slowly growing styling portfolio. Here are the first installments my loves, this is the look I like the most. I think it's the shorts that do it for me, they are simply gorgeous!

Inspiration: Pale

Behind everything there must be a story. The story behind todays inspiration is simple: pale. Perhaps it's not even a story; maybe there is some substance in it, but then again maybe not. That's one for me to know. I hope you have a pleasant day. xx
