i am that in love with you

More often than not I have noticed there is little simplicity to my blog, it's all about how many photos I can cram into the one post. This is mainly because I am all about the visual, I rarely go a day without sourcing that next 'amazing' photo. Sometimes however, one photo of one moment captured in time, haunts you in the best way possible.

Atlanta De Cadenet Taylor in all her nineties meets seventies glory does that for me in this photo, and I am unabashed to admit I have fallen head over heels for her hippie luxe charm.

i hate myself for loving you


"Can't break free from the things that you do. I wanna walk but I run back to you, that's why, I hate myself for loving you".

Choice words from Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and as it turns out inspiration for the new Damselfly collection, 'I Hate Myself For Loving You'.
Eschewing the more romantic, whimsical style of previous collections, I Hate Myself for Loving You presents itself as an ultra sexy rock inspired range of jewellery and accessories, drawing inspiration from Jett, and perhaps a few toxic relationships in the process.

From over sized embellished neck plates, to inky leather vests dripping in silver chains, Damselfly presents a range that will leave you decorated in dangerous forms of leather, chains, feathers and antique silver plated metals fashioned into raw, sculptural pieces that ooze insouciant sex appeal....louche rock star lover not included.

Designer Christianna Heideman was kind enough to send me the look book and as such I have included a few of my favourite things...

For more info on the collection, check out my interview with Heideman HERE at Laneway Magazine.
