Our first day in NYC.
+
When I was a young teenager living out in the country in Australia, every month a glossy Sportsgirl catalogue would arrive in the letterbox and I’d sit on my bed pouring over the pages, dreaming about how I could be the girls in the catalogues.  I especially remember the model Erica Baxter (who is now Mrs James Packer) and the image of her jumping on the beach looking so effortlessly cool and sporty, which has stuck with me all this time.
One year for christmas I received a signature striped Sportsgirl towel, and although we lived no where near a beach, I would lay it out in the garden, throw on a pair of sunglasses and dream I was lying on Bondi beach or somewhere in the French Riviera.  So when I received an email recently from the team at Sportsgirl asking me if I would cover my journey through NY fashion week for them, I remembered the girl who would pour over those pages dreaming she could dive in…  and it made me really smile… I of course jumped at the chance!

VOGUE AUSTRALIA | June 2011 | my 7 page story!
When Vogue Australia’s Editor and Fashion Director, Kirstie Clements  and Naomi Smith, casually contacted me during Paris Fashion week to meet  up again, I never dreamed a 7 page story in Vogue would eventuate!!
Even after shooting images for a magazine, you never really knows the  size of the image published or where the images may end up in magazine  (something that is really important!) or even if they will make the cut.  So when I was sitting front row of  Australian Fashion week with the  whole Vogue team, thinking that it couldn’t really get much better than  this,  the June issue landed in my lap!  I didn’t have time to flick  through it and waited until a quick stop off back to the hotel, with my  taxi waiting downstairs…
I started flicking through the pageS whilst trying madly to change  outfits, my heart sinking just a little, as I flipped almost all the way  through to no avail.  I finally reached the main fashion section with a  huge lump in my throat with fear – every photographers nightmare – that  my images got dropped – as there was no way they would be in main  fashion.
…so to my UTTER AMAZEMENT there were my images (all 7 PAGES of them) IN THE MAIN FASHION SECTION!
 I literally nearly had a heart attack, then jumped A LOT on the big  hotel bed,  did a girly squeal (a la a 16 yr old girl meeting Justin  Bieber) and raced back down to the taxi apologizing and attempting to  explain to the driver why today had just turned into the best day ever  to which he replied, “that’s nice honey, but it’s going to be $60 bucks  for the waiting time.”
Ahhh well… couldn’t all be a fairy tale.

RUSSIAN HATS AND FRENCH DREAMS
Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good hat.  A dull outfit is instantly transformed into an AMAZING outfit simply with the addition of a hat.A terrible vegetarian, I have seemingly come up with every possible excuse to justify my adoration for my white Russian fox hat.  Devoted to this hat I was for many a winter, wearing it with just about every outfit I had.  It was only after one too many awkward conversations with my fellow Russian hat lovers, confused when I repeatedly replied “privet” to their foreign words (in hopes that there was some similarity with French’s “Ça va”),  that I decided to find an alternative hat obsession.Then by chance, I discovered my new love affair… Maison Michel.  Whilst wearing this hat I have wild dreams that a tourist will stop me in the streets of Paris and in broken french ask me for directions, assuming I am French…
As I said… in my WILDEST dreams!
