I went to the Gallery of Modern Art on the weekend to check out a few of their latest exhibits (you can see my last trip to the Future Beauty exhibit here). The big drawcard right now is the David Lynch: Between Two Worlds retrospective but there's also the recently opened Michael Parekowhai: The Promised Land exhibit, the Japanese Art After 1989 exhibit, and the gallery's collection of Indigenous art on display as well. While the David Lynch retrospective is on the unsettling/moody/messed up side of things, the Michael Parekowhai and Japanese art exhibits are a good remedy to that. I've already shared some photos over on Instagram but here are a few more that I snapped on my iPhone.

The autumn/winter collections are coming in thick and fast. One of the latest to hit my inbox is from Australian label Leonard St. Known for their use of bright colours and bold prints, their AW15 collection definitely delivers. The key prints in this collection include the Eagle Floral, the Travel Print, the Abstract Floral, and the 50s Spot. The colour palette for this collection is distinctly autumnal, with lush greens and rich maroons sitting pretty against black and grey basics. The AW15 collection is currently available in stores and online, and you can see more of the collection over on the Leonard St. website.

Right now I'm all about hanging planters. Now, they might not be so practical for someone who's had a lifelong tendency to bump their head on anything and everything (the struggle is real you guys) but they sure do a good job of sprucing up a space. These are just a few pretty pieces I've spotted both in real life (hello Patterson + Steele moon pot at the Finders Keepers Markets) and online.

I've had a few rolls of film just sitting around for the past couple of months so thought it was about time to get them developed. These photos are from assorted Finders Keepers markets in Brisbane and are probably a year or two old. I used to love taking film photos but these days getting them developed, especially the cost of doing so, can be such a pain (FYI I got my negatives developed by Camera House for $7.50 per roll and then scanned them myself). I was really looking forward to getting these photos back but ended up being a bit underwhelmed with them. I wouldn't normally edit film photos but ended up auto correcting the colour of these in Photoshop because they came back with this red tinge that I didn't really like. I'm not sure if that was from the film, my camera, how they were developed, or my scanner but I guess that's the unexpected nature of film photography.

As much as I love a good print, a majority of my wardrobe is made up of basics. I own a ridiculous number of striped tops and white tees, and there's something so comforting and appealing about having a pared back wardrobe. This is why the The Edit, by boohoo.com, has caught my eye. I haven't really paid much attention to boohoo in the past but their AW15 campaign is pretty on point for those looking for key pieces to add to their autumn/winter wardrobes. The Edit consists of ten 'must haves' that not only include personal favourites like the denim shirt and skirt but also the camel coat, the cable knit sweater, the waterfall jacket, and the duster coat. Check out the rest of the campaign images, below, or head to the website to shop the collection.
