We're all Lovers.

The lookbook for Lover's SS 08/09 collection (Southern Hemisphere), "Love Bomb" is just up! T

It's such a big collection and looks pretty good, although the Northern Hemisphere FW 08 collection is simply amazing. I'm especially loving, no. 2, 9, 16, 22, 39, 54 and 57. Bleh, I'd be lucky if I can afford just one of them. Most of the dresses are in the $600-$700 range.


P.S. Apparently there will be no DFEE anymore for law, which hopefully means that the cut-off for combined law will be lowered this year!

Crisis much?

Here's a video called The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard.

As you may all know, I may be no environment freak, but I think this is an important issue that needs to be addressed in our society that has such an emphasis on capitalism. And it's not just just all about the environment and the consumption of finite natural resources, but there's also a range of hidden concerns such as exploitation, health hazards, propaganda, and so forth.

Over the last year, I've realised how fashion trends are circular (as outlined in the video with the wide/skinny heels), and more that probably to create fads and encourage spending. Hence, I've been trying to invest in classic designs and good, natural fabrics; yes, trying to phase out any acrylic /rayon/polyester crap which which isn't exactly good for you and causes pollution. But yes I know, I'm still sucked in by this whole commodity fetishism, it's so powerful because it's all around us. But I'm trying!!! The funny thing is, these issues have all been mentioned by Karl Marx over a hundred years ago. Hmm...

ETA: gone.
