she's cracked.

i know this necklace is kind of old news, but i totally forgot that it was my mission to track it down until i remembered today that i still do not own it.. a veritable sartorial tragedy.

it's from karen walker's fall 09 collection, 'she's cracked', and is currently only available on shopbop (from what i can tell). her silver jewellery is usually too dainty and pretty (read: subtle) for my liking, but this amalgamation of chunky plastic and a gold dookie rope is just perfect..


coco in motion.

v magazine has launched a video entitled 'coco in motion' by up-and-coming stop motion filmmaker, stephen smith, to coincide with the release of issue 62 - featuring a smokin' hot natalie portman on the cover, dontchya know! natty p is dripping with chanel and boys everywhere are promptly jizzing themselves. enjoy..

cool indeed..

forty candles.

happy birthday to sesame street - celebrating the big 4-0 today!

i figured the only fitting way to celebrate such a milestone would be to enjoy an afternoon of fantastic educational viewing, so let's flip it back to the old school with a selection of some of my favourite sesame street moments..

cookie monster is soooo pimp!!!

and my personal favourite..

cecile is a fucking queen!

in other news, i popped along to the msit 'inside out' fashion parade last night to see the billabong simwear competition, amongst other things. it was a super evening - some really, really amazing design and production work, and some really different and original pieces (although there was still a lot of lady gaga/balmain/gothic lolita influence.. snore!).

the winner of the aspiration award presented the most to-die-for full length pale pink chiffon dress with giant puffball sleeves, cowled hips and a white leather harness around the bodice (kicking myself i didn't duck home to get my camera after work!!!) and if anyone knows who i have to sweet talk to get one of those mint green brocade bodysuits with the frilly hips and crazy puff sleeves - PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!

millinery was also on show and while there were a heap of sweet designs, the best would have to have been a cerise-coloured turban that made me want to get up out of my seat and rip it off the model's head. it was better than prada. for real.

oh, and the lamb cutlets at interval were the icing on the cake.. or the meat in my hands? i don't really know, but i can say for sure that they were heaven on a bone.

lost and defeated.

just a bunch of things that are inspiring me this afternoon..

off to dinner tonight with my mum and boyfriend, and then the tedious task of taking measurements of all the stuff i'm going to sell on ebay.. fun!!

side note - taj mahal restaurant in new farm is pretty much the greatest provider of indian noms i have ever experienced. can not believe their butter chicken, nor the fact that i have walked past it about nine thousand times, but have never eaten there. go there right now for the greatest food of your life. seriously.
