Bootie Call

Lace up, strap in, buckle up and hold on. While the other side of the world is busy storing up and vacuum-packing their winter woollies away for another year, here in Brisbane we’re getting ready for another instalment of ‘A winter that kinda really isn’t one’. I’m embracing this climate 100% though. Let’s take advantage of this seasons trending, as Brisbane’s winter weather is the perfect time...

It might seem ludicrous to think about Fall trends while we are amidst the semi-blistering Aussie Summer – however I assure you, winter clothes will be in stores soon enough and you must be prepared.

The Fall 2011 shows revived some of my favourite trends in an exceptionally innovative – dare I say – fashion.

Of these trends, I’m going to share with you my favourites,...

Travelling in Style

It’s clearly no news that air travel just isn’t what it used to be. Long gone are the glamour days of being greeted by fabulous models/actresses/air hostesses with little pill box hats and silk scarfs as you carried on over-sized bags of beauty products and the extra ten outfits that you think might come in handy (but in reality simply served as sparkly comfort blankets). Modern day flight, ho...

Lingerie 101

November 25, 2011

feature image

One thing that women of all shapes and sizes have in common is that the lingerie they choose to purchase must make them feel wonderful about themselves. From the most fine and petite frames to the biggest, boldest, beautiful body; lingerie was designed to make a woman feel sexy, sensual, desirable but most significantly, above all else, special. We all know that when your special ‘someone’ tu...

Lucid Lingerie

November 08, 2011

It’s no secret lingerie has always oozed outward luxury, lavishness, sensuality and feminine delicacy; differentiating the former from the conventional set of demure under-garments and with this post-modern eras preoccupation with the ‘body beautiful’ and overt, municipal sexualisation, Lingerie trends for summer 2011 are hotter and more risqué than ever, resulting in very chic and raunchy styl...

For all those dedicated followers of the idc blog, you would remember not too recently I was touting the beauty and prowess of the Polo and how it was the neuvo races.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m standing strong by this but with everything there is always the exception to the rule – and that, without a doubt, is the Melbourne Cup. From Perth t...

I think the somewhat recent addition of fluoride in the water system here in Brisbane has had far more adverse affects than some purists ever even closely warned us about. It appears woman around me have suddenly fall in abundant proportions. Normally, unobservant to things of the like, the reality of the pregnancy proliferation came driving home when suddenly my phone was ringing so regularly...

It’s infamously true men’s fashion styles cycle more slowly than the break-neck speed some women’s trends surge forward; and while this may seem like a case of gender discrimination, take heed fellow gentlemen – it’s not so much a point of lament. The slower ebb and flow of men’s trends is actually a great benefit to us males who are notoriously bad at multi-tasking and those who still like to...

Suiting Your Suit

September 26, 2011

feature image

Women around the globe are finally realising they need to dress their specific body shapes to make the most of their curves and balance out their proportions. Men too come in all shapes and sizes, and as for every lady, for every man there are suit fabrics, cuts and styles that best flatter his body type. Just as a tall man in an overcoat wants to look regal and not like Andre the Giant, a man...

Viva la Solaire!

September 12, 2011

If the alarm bells haven’t rung yet, you’re already behind the eight-ball. That’s right, for those of us who love the lick of the smacking Australian Summer Sun have, by now, thoughts of surf, sand and hotel swim-up bars; and for those of us who aren’t devotees to the cult of the solar star, nothing instils social fear more than the lycra-clad promises of another swim-suit season. Like a mass A...
