Garance Doré in the land of Oz

I received my copy of Vogue Australia yesterday, and was absolutely delighted to see the beautiful, lovely & talented Garance Dore featured on page 48. Garance's (almost) daily posts always make my day, either with her witty or humorous writing, beautiful photography, or gorgeous illustrations. Loved reading what Garance thought of Australia, our fashion, our style, and of her experiences here during her recent visit; just had to share these with you...

  3. oooh i love garance so much... her posts are a breath of fresh air, so funny, so simple, so french. :) I love reading what she has to say, she's a very good writer (and it translates very well to english, but i love reading it in the original french) and writes with such personality and flair.

    can't wait to get this on the way to work tomorrow! the 40 minute commute isn't looking so bad anymore. :)

  25. Oversized lapels are a fantastic thing..love the idea of taking something classic like a vest and tweaking the proportions.
    I love that garance dore shot of the girl with the surface to air wedges..it convinced me that I needed that pair of shoes in my life!
    And I miss the clothes from Willow, fantastic Aussie label, but it's not easily available in the States (or maybe not at a reasonable price!)
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  30. I love the Ksubi glasses she drew! I've been wanting a Karen Walker pair that has a similar shape... not sure if it's worth the investment though since no place here in Hawai'i sells them and I really wanna try it on my face first before I buy it! It's so hard for me to find sunglasses that fit well!
