festival edit: laneway

I was browsing the ASOS website and noticed that the Australian site had a special summer festival edit. This got me a bit excited, but when I went to have a look at their picks I found it all a bit lacking. I’m going to Laneway Festival in a few weeks, and their Laneway edit didn’t really seem very ‘Laneway’ to me. It probably also doesn’t help that their picks were more winter weather appropriate, and right now in Brisbane we’re experiencing some sweltering summer days. So I thought I’d put together my own list of more appropriate Laneway-inspired gear from the site. Which festivals, if any, are you going to this summer?
1.Whistles ‘Patsy’ Spot Top

4. Antipodium Dress (must’ve sold out already because I can’t locate it anywhere on the site)
5.ASOS Round Sunglasses
6.ASOS Wide Brim Fedora
7.Borders & Frontiers Full Alphabet Shopper
8.ASOS Animal Print Watch (so you can keep track of when your fave bands are playing)
9.ASOS Figaro Sandals (all the Laneways I’ve been to have been chilled enough for sandals)

two types of stripes



Two types of stripes in the one shirt? Could this possibly be the Ultimate Striped Shirt? It’s no secret that I love a good stripe and lately I’ve been loving my Antipodium X Sportsgirl shirt sick. It’s going to be getting a workout come summer, trust me. I’m not usually one for cropped shirts but I’ve taken to wearing it with high waisted skirts and jeans – no bared stomachs around these joints. I also like the longer length hem at the back. Funnily enough, I also have a Secret Squirrel long sleeved striped shirt with a similar hemline. Not only is my collection of striped shirts growing, but it also seems that I’m building a collection of split-hem shirts as well.

The result of a little afternoon drawing session and a bit of inspiration from the Sportsgirls Like: Antipodium collection. You can see more drawings over on my tumblr. I’m thinking of doing a more of these types of illustrations, inspired by certain collections that have caught my eye. Sportsgirl are also running a competition to win a trip to London during Fashion Week, if anyone’s interested. Get in quick though, because it ends this Friday. I think I might enter. I’ve already blogged and tweeted about the collection, and hey, any excuse to go back to London, right?

sportsgirls like: antipodium

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may notice that I’m quite a fan of the Australian, London-based label Antipodium. And what Australian girl grows up without being a bit partial to the one-stop-fix-for-everything-fashion store that is Sportsgirl? So imagine my glee when I found out that the latest ‘Sportsgirls Like’ collaboration would involve none other than, you guessed it, Antipodium. Sportsgirl have been quite notorious for pulling in recognised designers for these collaborations. They even managed to get revered blogger Susie Bubble to blog on the set of the shoot. The ‘Sportsgirls Like: Antipodium’ collection is entitled Field Day after the music festival that takes place in London. As such, the designs are quite festival-inspired. The capsule collection is dominated by muted hues that are reminiscent of the London climate. It also features Antipodium’s signature quirky yet feminine designs and eye-catching prints to boot. The paisley printed dress, maroon hooded jacket, and striped shirt are my picks so far. The collection will be available in-store and online from September. In the meantime you can check out the full lookbook on the Sportsgirl website.
