TALULAH AT FASHION WEEK

Talulah pieces are instantly recognisable by their feminine and floral feel and classic silhouettes.

Worn by some of my favourite Australian ladies Megan Gale, Rebecca Judd, Jennifer Hawkins and Carrie Bickmore.

Kelli Wharton’s timeless designs evoke sunny days at the races or late afternoon cocktail parties. Whatever the occasion you are sure to stand out wearing a Talulah maxi dress or classic cap sleeved after dark dress.

Check out Talulah’s Autumn showcase at the Melbourne Fashion Festival with all these prints now available on SurfStitch.

CAPTAIN FIN CO // VANS

With the likes of Dane Reynolds, Noa Deane, Tanner Gudauskas and many more, Captain Fin Co. is a steezy, eclectic, new age take on the classic fin. Jazzy prints, bold colours and contemporary art designs make this brand a mind blowing colour force to be reckoned with. If you’re looking to stand out in the line up, you’re on the right track.

Wave: Mitch King- Photography: Pat Vaughan

If you’re into carving concrete lines and mongo footing down Santa Monica boulevard (or probably just your local neighbourhood) , hitting the slopes or getting real in the surf, Vans has you sorted. Vans have been creating sticky soles and effortless sports attire since March 16th, 1966. Like a wine, getting better with age, they continue to be the forefront of the skate, surf and snow industry with their classic style and simplistic vibes.

Sometimes it takes two to tango, so Vans and Captain fin co, have done just that and teamed up to create one of the freshest surf/skate collaborations we have seen yet. Check out the Captain Fin Co twist on a classic Vans tee, here. And not to mention, the ultra lightweight, durable Vans/Captain fin co.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: EVERYDAY EASINESS

This week I’m loving simple, easy to wear pieces. Much like your basics, easy to wear pieces can be thrown on in any situation and you’ve got a stylish outfit ready to walk out the door. Easy to wear pieces are very much statement items that you can pair back with your basics. Whether it’s a printed maxi skirt, striped dress or silk cami for the girls or bright shoes or printed tee for the guys, these pieces will save you from those ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ moments time and time again.1e013fdb1d45e4fe897c3aee46d3a75dwpid-Photo-17-Oct-2013-515-pm1
