From Fox 8 to Milan, Melbourne born Montana Cox is making it big abroad. From walking along side Miranda Kerr, to walking for Chanel and Emilio Pucci to name just a few, Milan is her first lot of fashion shows since becoming the winner of Australia's Next Top Model. Her amazing features and long limbs allow her to adapt to any collection designers throw at her, which is obvious in the runway show snaps above. 

Keep your eyes on the look out, I hear she's going to be the next big thing!

( and I totally picked her to win ANTM, just sayin! I knew it from the beggining ;) )

WEDDING BELLS

With March being the wedding season, the past couple of weeks at work I've had numerous customers looking for the perfect dress to wear to a wedding. Its a tough call. How bright is too bright? Are prints acceptable? Am I allowed to wear white or black? How short is too short? The questions are endless, and I'm not actually sure that I have the answer to any of them. I have a wedding coming up at the end of the month, and seeing the stress that people go through trying to find the best outfit, I'm actually dredding it!

I've noticed a lot of people coming in and proving the point that there actually isnt a lot out there, especially coming into the Winter season. So seeing as I myself will soon become the customer, I thought I should start the hunt too. With these options, you'll soon be able to see yourself asking the same questions about each of the outfits I've been browsing through...


Too short? Too casual? Too white? Too 'party'?


Too lacy? Too modern? Too black?


Too light? Too bold? Too simple? Too bright?

As you can see, it's a hard decision. Another thing that plays on my mind is that a lot of brides now choose to buy their bridesmaids dresses from stores like Myer, David Jones and Forever New to list a few. The problem with that being, can you imagine turning up to a wedding in the same dress as a bridesmaid? The same clutch and accessories as the bride herself? And I bet it happens a lot...



So what is wedding acceptable? I think this one is left up to your own interpretation, after all, we are there to awe over the bride and groom. Next mission: hunt for the perfect dress, I'll keep you posted!

WINTER TREATS







I have been so MIA lately with work, music festivals and running around in the summer heat, that it has well and truely made me realise how much I want Winter. Coats and jackets and scarves with beanies and gloves and boots and socks... I could go on forever. With Perth still in the middle of a gigantic heat wave, I can only dream for the cold snap to hit. Working in fashion makes it about 10 times worse considering we are in the middle of all the Winter stock, with new arrivals hitting stores every hour of every day...

This Winter I've decided my new obsession is fur. It reminds me of what I wish we had in an Australian Winter- snow. As much as I love curling up with a hot chocolate, blankets and listening to rain on the roof as I fall asleep, I still wish I could open my windows in the morning to a crisp scene of pure white... Anyway, a girl can dream.. If I want any kind of Winter Wonderland I'm just going to have to save up for a white christmas somewhere on the otherside of the world, hopefully in the near future. For the mean time, here are a few bits and pieces I've scouted out for, while not so patiently waiting for the chilly season.

Dear Winter, please come soon... and preferable create a miracle and bring some snow. Yours sincerely, Britney xoxo
