Selfie Exposed

Selfie Exposed Anna Wintour stated, “I have never taken a selfie” in a recent Vogue interview. And if you listen closely…there it is, the sound of collective gasps worldwide. Since 1988, Editor-in-chief, Dame Anna Wintour has set many trends. However, the ruler of the fashion world has claimed to have never indulged in a selfie. If you don’t know whom I am referring to, think the Devil Wears Prada and solid Chanel framed sunglasses on a face framed with the strongest bangs ever witnessed.

Drop [Crotch] it Like it’s Hot…

Stop what you are doing and pay attention…. When styled properly drop crotch pants are hot! Do I hear a hell yeah? Males and females are rocking this amazingly versatile style… and I am sold! This style does not hold any gender or cultural discrimination; it literally transcends all borders, and has been embraced worldwide throughout the centuries. Lately, I have watched athletes jogging by in drop crotch pants, women wearing drop crotch pants elegantly when dining at restaurants; and MTV had a 90s tribute featuring MC Hammer in vibrant red, metallic bronze and silver drop crotch pants shuffling across...

Hana Overlay Knit by Madison Square Clothing

Shivering on the edge of the road, I hastily scan iconic Hampton Street – waiting for my chance to cut through traffic back to the office, as a truck speeds past and sprays me with the essence of a dirty cold Melbourne Winter puddle. Through gritted teeth I (Tammy) exhale, “Well played Winter, well played…” June marks the first month of winter in Australia and while Australian's take this opportunity to start booking their European holidays to escape a type of cold you feel in the core of your being, the majority of Melburnians have to endure the work grind...
