Recently I came into contact with CAROLINE BLOMST.

Yes, THE Caroline Blomst of Caroline's Mode and Stockholm Street Style. For those of you who have been living under a rock the last few years (pardon my obnoxious tone), Caroline is the original street style blogger who not only put her Scandanavian hometown on the fashion map but also created a name for herself and her own sense of style.

I met up with her at her hotel during L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion week and this is what ensued...

LMFF Opening Night

So it's been a long, long while between posts and I can't even think of any valid excuses that will compensate for thee. So instead of grovelling and begging for readers, instead I will share my experience at the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Opening Party this past Thursday night. And in doing so, I hope my thoughts, will be enough to make up for lost time! Ch-check the link here!

colour block me

I'm black and white through and through with minimal shades of grey and beige and the occasional ruby red lip. This season's pops of colour don't sit well with me and have me retreating even further into my ready to wear 'funeral appropriate' wardrobe. It's not that colour scares me, its just that black is like the best friend that never fails me. Having said that, the above photos with their rainbows of fuchsia, orange and aqua have me lime green with envy (bodacious tan included). Perhaps with the right amount of bronzer the all sombre ensemble can be laid to rest for one evening...

in abbundance

Recently I was asked to pen a summary of myself for Onya Magazine. I was met with a touch of writer's block but what eventually came out went a little something like what is listed HERE (under Contributor: Jade Rose Leopoldo).

Had I just been asked to submit photos that best described me instead it would have been a great deal easier (cue the above). Some would say owning and wearing 5 different rings at the one time is to live a life in abundance, others would say it is a shining example of materialism.

In fact,
Doug Horton once said, "materialism is the only form of distraction from true bliss". Unfortunately I have to disagree, a) I don't exactly know who Doug Horton is, and b) if I owned each of those 5 rings displayed in image 4 my bliss would be...well, abundant.
