Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day’s a crock and I don’t love you

February 14 is coming. It’s a day that makes every man’s hair on the back of his neck stand piloerect. It’s a day that fills the city and shopping centres with the sound of ringing cash registers and swiping credit cards. It’s a day that sees pink, red and varying tones of white enshroud the city, country and its […]

Australian Open 2012 tennis players’ party

Pizza better than YAMUMS

Love pizza? Love cheap drinks? Love YAMUMS! The new restaurant fills a large gap in the Chapel Street food, grog and social offering, and is now open at number one Garden Lane in South Yarra.

Trying to be clean at Laundry Bar

The irony is inescapable. We were at Laundry Bar, in Fitzroy and we were surrounded by beautiful men and women: the legions of models on Giant Model Management’s books. Clean, laundered thoughts? Hardly. On Saturday 17 December at around 8pm, people filed into the small and modestly decorated bar in Melbourne’s northern suburb for a party filled […]

The Melbourne music, social and fashion scenes were sent into overdrive on 10 December 2011 with the Mister Mode Fashion Night Market, which went off as per usual without hitch. The Market took-over Oak Place Warehouse in South Yarra, a very cool and industrial grunge-come-fashion chic venue that was […]

The Diesel’s a-chuggin’

Who knew there were so many rules to wearing denim? Sure as the day is sunny, not me, but there are. What are they? I haven’t the faintest recollection. I think I was so bemused by the fact that “seams can sit here, not here; pockets must stretch from here, to here; and the waistband […]

Armani Exchange flagship sets sail

I was fortunate enough to go along to the official opening of the Armani Exchange new flagship store located in Chadstone ‘the fashion capital’ in Melbourne’s Southeast on Saturday 22 October. Usually, the shopping complex sucks the life out of me and I find myself lost amongst the designer outlets and walkways-off-walkways, eventually struggling to […]

Ecotools

While what I know about makeup and its application is limited, I know that it’s a combination of two key aspects that either make your face glow and attract attention, or dim and turn people away, giving that albeit dreaded ‘I’ve just come down with a bout of tonsillitis’ look. Not good. Aspect one is […]
