Spotlight On | Animal Print Fashion

I'm not a fan of animal print. I've never liked animal print. I've never worn animal print. And I can pretty safely say I never will wear animal print. When I think of animal print clothing I think of the ladies who reside in Hugh Hefner's playboy mansion...

'90s Fashion Fix | Slip Dresses

'90s Fashion Fix | Slip Dresses

Nothing says 1991 quite like a slip dress. A skimpy little dress, usually with shoestring straps, that has gone to garment university and graduated from sleep-wear to street-wear.

'90s Fashion Fix | White (Part 2)

It's Part 2 of our White Fashion Fix special, and this week we're looking at some great '90s editorials. Highlights for me from this bunch are the Australian magazines. There's a smokin' Cosmopolitan spread with Alison Brahe, a spread from the lesser-known Looks magazine featuring a model who I am 90% sure is a very young Sophie Falkiner*, and '90s fashion export Toneya Bird in a tropical whites editorial.

But wait! There's more! No! Let's not wait... let's get started...
