SUPER sunnies

Sunnies, we can't do summer without them and while we need them for sun protection we also need them to act as windows to our inner cool - they can really make or break a look. Sunglasses are highly susceptable to a trend and I'm sure the number of sunnies most of us have bought in a lifetime can't be counted on our fingers and toes. I'm a sucker for a cool pair of shades and although I have zillion pairs, I'm always being tempted by the latest looks. My friend Stepho has a hot pair of SUPER by RETROSUPERFUTURE® which prompted me to check out the range and I likely!!

The label was started by Daniel and Simon Beckerman the publishes of PIG Magazine, an independent music and fashion magazine out of Italy. As with the success of PIG Magzine which went on to branch into web-radio and became one of the most infuential indie music web-radios on the net, SUPER Sunglasses have taken off and are worn by Kanye West, Daft Punk, Sienna MIller, Jessica Alba and Valentino Rossi... Stocked in Australia at Glue stores, here are some of my favourites. I particularly like the Liberty print collection!!

Fairy tales are made for this...

US Vogue's Creative Director Grace Coddington and photographer Annie Leibovitz proved fairy tales aren't just for the kids with their take on the famous fairytale Hansel and Gretel in the December 2009 issue of US Vogue. Starring Andrew Garfield as Hansel, Lily Cole as Gretel and Lady GaGa as the wicked witch, the fashion editorial weaves its fairytale magic with beautiful photography and dreamy settings and beautiful clothes. I love how modern day clothing can be used tell a classic story... so inspiring. So when I turned on the TV last night and the movie Ever After starring Drew Barrymore was on, it was proven fairy tales aren't just for kids and that fairytales never die, they just get remade and reinterpreted so that we may live happily ever after...
