I’m so disappointed. I love your blog but you post this and only two measly images from Melbourne (the fashion capital of Oz)??? What’s going on? I’ve lived in both cities and know there so much to be inspired by in each but you wouldn’t know through your eyes.
The colours are wonderful. Love the shoes with the dress but oh-the-dress. I believe clothes should fit right, even if they are meant to be laid back and relaxed. If it was tapered at the waist just a little bit more…
As a former New Yorker now living in Sydney; It IS difficult to find fashion related inspiration here. It’s either “tarty” and unwearable (Sass and Bide), or So entirely trend driven that it’s out of style before the model leaves the catwalk. I wish I saw more women here like the one in this photo. She looks effortlessly chic and completely devoid of all the extraneous “bells, whistles, and sequins” that are so over-wrought in this city. Now Melbourne is a different story…..
The colors really are something special. She doesn’t really stand out, which is not an insult. Each major element is necessary for the picture to work. The vases, the girl, the table cloth, the tents… It’s all necessary and all so engaging to the eye.
Wow, what a gorgeous picture to start my day. I agree with you, totally inspiring combination of colors, particularly the rich purple and blue. This is a shot that I wouldn’t have noticed if I encountered it on the street myself.
