My friend Sandy hosted a fair at the elusive Uptown Records last Saturday in celebration of her blog turning two. 

Uptown Records is located in an old bomb shelter in the most unassuming of buildings, but once you walk in, it's like being sucked into the set of Enter The Void - the place is a maze of small rooms and corridors, with its walls painted blood red and neon lit - really quite awesome.

How cuuute does Hyoni Kang look in the new Nasty Gal x Mink Pink collection lookbook?


Dare I say the clothes on their own are a bit meh, but the styling and photography is most excellent!!

I was very recently reminded of a cult couple that once was...

Helena has always been one of my fave 90's supermodels. The epitome of a then-modern-day gypsy, there was such an effortless air to her, and I loved her aspirations to travel the world with a camera, not to mention the cool factor she earned as creative director of then fledgling Nylon Magazine.  She had such unconventional beauty, and no one quite wore the kohl-rimmed eyes look as well as she did!

Norman Reedus came back on my radar recently with his role on The Walking Dead.  Although in the second season he's not been given the air time his character deserves, Daryl is no doubt a total badass.

Novo Mania

Last week marked the second annual Novo Mania fashion trade show in Shanghai. 

Me and Drew Down, the founder of Insight.
Me and Phoebe, sales rep from Electric sekki. Shiny bowl cuts much?

Along with some of the more prominent big names, there were some interesting independent designers featured.  And lots of crazy Euros.

Totally expecting this trade show to be on the up and up, hopefully able to compete with the amazing shows in the US and UK one day!

Cute high/low mashups and I'm SO tickled by Constance's adorable short red curls!

Makes me wonder...what would I look like with short red curls?
