My amazing and incredibly stylish friend Justin Hinder came over with his partner Troy today for a lazy brunch. Justin is slowly making a name for himself in the Melbourne art world as the gallery assistant at Utopian Slumps as well, as dipping his toes into numerous other art ventures, and has been my go to resource and fountain of knowledge for anything art related throughout our friendship. One of my best friends, this guy is actually the funniest, silliest little naughty I know whilst being a constant style icon.
I appropriately dressed for a casual breakfast at home in this 1920′s black lace and silk mourning dress with a brooch of vintage flowers, 1950′s velvet opera coat with a fox fur shrug, and hat by Alannah Hill.
Lot’s of freshly squeezed orange juice, salmon bagels, strawberries, coffee and talk of toy poodles and french bulldogs went down, and now I’m ready to lay in bed with an army of movies and a cup of tea. It has been the dreariest week in Melbourne, so cold and rainy and this winter seems never ending. As much as I love rugging up in furs and knits I’m craving a bit of sunshine.
In other news, the All Tomorrow’s Parties ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ festival was announced for Melbourne 2013 this week! I’m SOOO excited, the line up looks insane! Curated by The Drones, I’ll be looking forward to seeing My Bloody Valentine, Godspeed You! Black Emperor,Beasts of Bourbon, Einstürzende Neubauten, HTRK, Swans, The Dead C and Melbourne favourite, Lost Animal. I feel like this lineup was made for me!
I love the title ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ for the event, as I’m a massive Nico fan. Have you noticed that Drama of Exile is the title of the 1981 album by Nico?
Hoping everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
