>> Give me a hole and I will happily stick something in it.  Mis-interpret that sentence at your peril… because what I'm talking about are the holes/gaps/cut-outs of a garment and the 'something' could be a knot here and there facilitating integration between two pieces of clothing.  I've had these Style Stalker pieces during a period of time when our UK summer had passed and I felt like dresses entitled Wakeboard and Wipe Out were really just there to mock me.  I don't blame the Australian mid-levels-label (Aus is a goldmine of these I've found…) for cashing in what is a) a national pastime for them and b) the summer season that has just gone when in general activewear influences have been rife, instigated mainly by Proenza Schouler's tie dye, hair dye antics.  I just blame the skies for smushing August into a downpour of grey days.  

Clearly I don't have an ounce of surf in my inactive bones (I huff and puff after two flights of stairs…) but I do have a love of sticking things in where they don't belong – such as a scarf and a satin skirt that have no business with sea/sand.  With the handy slits that Style Stalker have worked into their pieces that are clearly meant to be worn with scrunchy salty hair, bare feet and that beachy babe attitude that I err… don't have, I did some knotting, tying and cover-complicating that suddenly takes the 'surf' out and I no longer feel like dresses on hangers are openly "Mu-ha-ha-ha"-ing me with their summer vibes…

    I love the Corrie Williamson necklace. I remember you doing a post it ona few months back when I was a virgin to chunky jewellery and Corrie Williamson was my first. From then on I was hooked. I think Michelle from Kingdom of Style did a post about Corrie Williamson jewellery this week…
    I particularly love the scarves in the first photo… I shall be stealing that idea and use it in a post of my own mwahahaha.

  9. I love the way you work with accessories and how they mingle with the construction of the clothes. Tough job but beautifully done!
