i had the honor of working with Kirsten Reynolds from "Fallen Taboo", photographer Chih-Han Hsu from unsignedworks.blogspot.com, and (make-up) artist extraordinaire Ellana Mullaly last Thursday for Kirsten's lookbook campaign.
And this is what our powers combined created!!

Alice Hawkins looks like Dolly Parton and likes to hang out with gangsters, showgirls and topless models. She also happens to be one of the fashion world’s hottest photographers. Alice has been making serious waves in the Fashion industry, from the minute she walked out of the doors of Camberwell Arts College in 2002. At 28 years old she has produced a wealth of highly diverse and individual fashion and advertising work. Her work is renowned for both its use of colour as well her intimacy with her models.
“ I never played with dolls, I never dreamt of getting married or having children. I dreamt about love, passion, seduction and a bohemian life. To me, the most important thing is freedom. The only way you can be free is if you don’t lie to yourself or others and you assume responsibility for yourself.”
-Diane von Furstenburg

No blogging, kissing, smoking, fingers through hair, 11pm, 12pm, 1am, 2am, 3am phone calls.., stained letters, littering, unfeeling feelings, a smell left on a pillow, intertwining in the nook, doors slammed, lyrics sung, songs dedicated or loitering.

I'm not the type to be interested in a country homestead, but when i found pics of this beautiful residence designed by Ray Kappe, i felt instant tranquility and comfort, and decided that i would give the place a go if given the chance : )
The view's are to die for!
Jamie at Japan LA always has something fun up her sleeve, and I just found out about her annual SUPER MEGA FUN TOKYO TOUR. Every August, Jamie hosts a one week trip to Japan. All the shopping, sashimi, Sapporo and sights you can squeeze into 7 days, including Studio Ghibli Museum, Puroland (Hello Kitty Land), Comiket Comic Convention and Kingyo Theater Restaurant Show!!
I wish i had found this out earlier for my trip away with Felix.. In search of a SUPER MEGA FUN TOKYO TOUR GUIDE! any takers..?
"The main colours of the collection are white, beige, grey tones, navy and black with bright colour spots of bordeaux, petrol blue and turquoise. A 'Stripes in Bias' theme is seen throughout the collection on jeans and leather jackets, there are striped optical effects on shirts and knitwear and structures on jackets are deconstructed."
Men are so lucky to have the opportunity to rock such quirky colours, but many rarely do. I dont think its a question of ever looking girly because unless a man wears a skirt (even then its still questionable considering guys and girls have very different shaped bodies..) its all about the combination of the styling colours, shapes, and details.
