I’ve always wanted to use the word “promiscuity” in a headline, especially about clothing. Go figure! I love it when I achieve my own personal goals, especially on a Friday. What are you doing with your weekend? I’ll be out in Carton House working on a hopefully-beautiful shoot, details of which you’ll have to wait for, but if I had the weekend off I would probably go wander around town for a while, check out the market in Meeting House Square, go to see Bridesmaids (I know, I’m woefully behind the tide) and go get a lemon slice in the Cake Cafe. AMAZING.

I don’t, so I won’t, but I’ll leave you with the first snap taken at Oxegen the weekend before last – of Therese Purcell, whose pattern clash stood out to me because it was just so bold. I love the big bag, and although she is wearing a non-functional hat, I love the mix ‘n’ match property of the whole look.
