Exquisite craftmanship - need I say any more.
I'm just about to board my flight. The next time you hear from me will be from a(hopefully) sunny Los Angeles.

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity of catching up with local photographer, Nicole of Nichol Brooklyn Studio.
We spent a warm afternoon soaking up the East End, laughing and snapping away. Nicole was an absolute delight to work with, and as you can imagine I’m ecstatic with the end result. We also took a few more photos which I will share with you once they are ready.
In the meantime, you can check out more of Nicole’s great work online on her facebook , blog , and official website.

Last week, I was also tagged by the gorgeous Zanita in the NW magazine Mr Paparazzi tag – here are my answers.

Vintage white cotton sundress.
It’s Oscar night and you can be dressed by any designer, who would you choose?
Oscar de la Renta of course – classic and elegant.

Nothing springs to mind, everything in moderation, but I absolutely can’t wait to see a return to 40’s/50’s inspired fashion, full skirts and pretty prints.
If you could give any celebrity a makeover, who would it be?
Who is your celebrity style icon and why?
Has to be Miranda Kerr or Rachel Bilson – both so effortlessly chic.
I tag the following fashionistas

This striking silk skirt is the work of Victorian designer Krista Hochwallner .
I love sharing fabulous emerging designers with my readers and Krista Hochwallner is just that. I first came across Krista’s classic designs a couple of months ago, and instantly fell in love with her modern take on 50’s and 60’s design.
Feminine lines, pretty detailing, fun and glamour underpin Krista’s collections, and is one of the reasons I’m such a big fan.
Lovers of beautifully crafted, lady-like fashion must check out Krista’s current collection at kristahochwallner.com.au.
Krista also has a beautiful blog - The Days of Glamour.
P.S. I was absolutely spoilt for Valentines Day, with long stem red roses, a day at the salon followed by a romantic dinner! How did you celebrate?

My new favourite label - Pretty Ballerinas.
Don’t get me wrong, I adore my heel collection, but when it comes to running around all day, traversing the globe, sightseeing, nothing beats a comfortable pair of flats, especially ones as sweet as these.
Hand-crafted on the Island of Menorca in Spain, from the softest patent leather, the quality of these ruby red gems is incredible and comfort second to none. As you can imagine, these have taken prime position in my suit case, so expect to see these popping up frequently throughout my travels.
This is my first pair of what can only be described as heaven in a shoe, and they certainly won’t be my last. I’m now eyeing off the Rosario Zebra print, which come with detachable bows and flowers – too adorable!
You can check out the full Pretty Ballerinas range online at prettyballerinas.com. A warning though, you may get hooked, I certainly am. Aussie girls - you can find stockists at Zapatito
I'm wearing, vintage blazer and Hayley Kate dress
P.S. The count down is on, less than three weeks until I arrive in the US. I don’t travel well, so I’m not looking forward to the 14 hour flight, but I absolutely can’t wait for my first visit to the states and sharing some of the fashion and sights with my beautiful readers.
