What she said...

I always love it when a designer decides to have a bit of fun with fashion...

So when I stumbled upon this witty new collection from Belgian designer and film-maker, Sancho Hemelsoen, I just had to share it!

Cleverly titled: 'Devided by Two', here's your first look!!

Romance Was Born
On the catwalk, convention struts its way right out the window.

With some of the more think-outside-the-square, creative designers; McQueen, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Christian Dior,  fashion 'rules' are often broken and imagination is left to take over. I think this is why I love fashion and design.

Especially with haute couture, you can really do anything and push the boundaries of what is 'in' and 'normal'. Seriously, half the things we see walking down the runway aren't actually practical to wear; a lot of things don't even make it to the shelves! They are purely art.

My new fashion love: 'Romance Was Born' is a Sydney brand where you'll never know what innovative, kooky, amazing designs are going to be created. For example, its most recent catwalk show was named 'Renaissance Dinosaur'…!

The world is serious enough... It's about time fashion ran wild!

Soaked in Vintage

'My Sister Pat' onepiece
Do you remember that famous scene in 'The Notebook'; the one where Rachael McAdams is splashing in the ocean saying"I'm a bird, I'm a bird."?  (watch video)

Why do I mention it? Well, next time you watch this movie, take notice  of her 50's style bathers….. Envious? ...Well guess what, I've found something better!

The other day I was in a cute, little vintage store with my friend when we found the prettiest, must-have bathers I think I've ever seen! These vintage inspired bikinis and bathers playsuits  are by Melbourne fashion label 'My Sister Pat'. (Each style  features rubber shirring (non perishable), which simply means you can wear them in salt water and chlorine and they won't get ruined! I.LOVE.THEM!)

And the good news: 'My Sister Pat' is only one of many brands who are in on this trend!

First worn by Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, and many other style and Hollywood icons, 50's style bathers are now making a comeback - with high waisted bikinis, and bandeau tops popping up everywhere! And why wouldn't they? With their very flattering silhouette, they're becoming the must-have cut.

I'll definitely be saving up for a pair of my own! If only I 'd discovered them at the start of Summer!
