haha, Bevel. Such an odd word. Any idea when their designs go on sale? These are so fresh, I want everything.

Louise

oooh, nice. Very very 70's album cover on some of those T-shirts, good comparison! x

WendyB

I also like the scribbly print.

Liberty London Girl

Hello gorgeous, did you see this?

Bisous from NY, LLGxx

Hey LLG! No, I hadn't seen that article. Really interesting and makes some great points. I guess being a lithe tanned creature does open some doors!

Hannah

Love the first menswear look (almost enough to overcome my fear of prints!). Great article in the comments too - definitely highlights some things I find perturbing.

Queen Michelle

I just reread that Vine article LLG and it's actually really brilliant as it makes some great points I hadn't actually thought about. There are blogs not metioned in the article, who shall remain nameless, that seem to attract lots of attention based solely on either the looks of the author or the authors collection of designer apparel. Of these blogs I have never read anything that equates to intelligence or any kind of thought process. That disturbs me.

Right on, Queen Michelle: "There are blogs not metioned in the article, who shall remain nameless, that seem to attract lots of attention based solely on either the looks of the author or the authors collection of designer apparel. Of these blogs I have never read anything that equates to intelligence or any kind of thought process. That disturbs me."

Not to mention blogs that simply cut and paste editorial photos without further comment or create other original content. I live for original content and can't believe people would be willing to settle for less...

I am in LOVE with that hoodie with the scrawl print!

Cece

Very cool and colorful!

SwanDiamondRose

yes. i love that 1st t-shirt. and all those later 70s paired down images. those are beautiful.

you are making me nervous about blogging now! i think there is room for all types. i mean i find the absolutely faceless, really mass media fashion blogs can't hold me for a second. they look like ads. but people who share their wardrobes and just share their looks, that's ok. if someone is drowning in cash and just posts endless expensive clothes that can be lame but when it becomes something unto itself, like Sea of Shoes, there is soemthing special there. yes, i did mention a name!

if someone is just reposting editorial, again that can be empty and machine-like but sometimes people are great curators. and that is their strength. and a tumblr-like blog is great.

we're also just weaving webs, obviously. finding the people who like the things we like, and those people finding the things we like. sometimes you need words and sometimes a beautiful piece of clothing just takes your breath away. i mean that is what clothes are for...........! you LOOK.

have to agree re original content though. that is really IT. i try be be like that. try! though often i am creating a tone, a timelined inspiration book. and i am actually selling something.

anyway those are my caffeinated thoughts. xo.

Maya

I want these bracelets!

Mie

Oooh, I LOVE this! But where can you GET it????

Beck

Looks like LadyHawke modelling the girls stuff...is it an antipodean label?

Wow. I was reading this thinking:
"Brisbane is such a fashion void, nobody cool has stores here". Then I didn't even bother reading where the shops are. Wait! Double take! There's one here! What the heck?! I'm so amazed and surprised right now. Your blog is the bomb. Never commented before - but I read all the time. Y'all are amazing :)

the third menswear look, with the short sleeved jacket......i need this jacket in my life!

re: the vine article, i also find it incredibly boring to see some of the blogs containing people who are non-too-creative with their outfits, but wear designer and expensive items and garner mass amounts of interest in their blogs.
i do follow some blogs which post editorial and such, but as a fashion student, this is a great way to find inspiration without having to buy hundreds of magazines!
my favourite blogs are those with creative and intelligent writers, especially if they have an eye for unusual items, and again if they often include non-fashion related things (which i guess is what I try to do with my blog....i suppose at this point a shameless plug is in order? http://venturesofjenn.blogspot.com )
