House of Wilde by Alice McCall

One of our all time favourite Aussie designers, Alice McCall, has just launched her first diffusion label, House of Wilde to run in competition with her other (more expensive) eponymous label. It seems one was just not enough from this ever growing designer/stylist/all-round creative genius. Bringing her 10 years of experience to the new label named after her daughter, she is still creating those soft, loose shapes in a earthy, natural colour palette you would expect from Alice McCall.. 

We highly recommend you check out this one!


ASOS...killin' it in Oz

Sooo.. we've been shopping on ASOS for over a year now.. not sure if we were late to jump on this massive e-tailor's bandwagon or early, however, Australia is now ASOS's biggest market outside of the UK! We are buying enough product to fill two jumbo jets each week...
How amazing is that! It has sparked the opening of our own online section of the site which makes it easier to make purchases and returns and has everything sized with our sizing codes. The free shipping makes the online shopping at ASOS just that much more fun. The women's fashion director, Caren Downie and her menswear equivalent, John Mooney discuss..


The latest purchase on ASOS.. probably currently on one of those two jumbo jets..
Can't wait for them to arrive!

Finally, the UK mega highstreet store has opened its flagship store in Melbourne. This has really been the year for the international brands to get their act together and include our country in their repertoire. So excited for our next trip to Melbourne now.. might have to book some flights soon! Fingers crossed that they will open up stores on every corner of Sydney, just like it is in London!

The modeling debut of Lottie Moss, yes you guessed it, Kate Moss' little half-sister.. Never knew she had a little sister that look this good? Well, frankly, neither did we!!

So it seems that the Moss family have hit the gene jackpot. The proof is in the pudding, that is, Kate Moss, obviously, and the 13-year-old Lottie whose looks are beyond her years her first photo-shoot by Andrea Carter-Bowman. She sparked a fashion frenzy after she was spotted as Kate's bridesmaid earlier this year and agencies have been lining up to snap up the young beauty.

This style is taking us back to the early Sex and the City episodes, however, its running rampant in a new sexy way. Such a fan of the return of the single strap across the toes in the shoe department. On the catwalks or in the street we cant get enough of this minimalism...
Spotted: a cheaper version and in stacks of colours on a website from China that ships to Australia, US, Canada and UK free... stoked!

The best of the rest...

femininity reigns supreme

Accents of femininity are surrounding us from every which-way it seems and the world of pearls are no exception. Being Australian, we are hosts to some of the world's most stunning freshwater pearls and looks like we are going to be seeking them out more than we have in the past few years. Pearls have always been part of that classic style which conjures up images of New York housewives with their string of pearls around their neck. They are however, coming around again in a new and fresh way, as detailing on jackets, clustered on clutches and even as dainty hair accessories. 

Femininity reigned supreme at Chanel ss12 and we were obsessed with Mr Lagerfeld's use of pearls. Chanel included different shades of pink and white pearls, bumping up the feminine factor to an all time high. Jaw-droppingly beautiful, the models were dripping in pearls from top to toe.

It's finally time to pack away your dangly and dainty chains and instead channel our favourite accessories editor Taylor Tomasi Hill and her favourite neck hugging friends. That's right, chokers are finally back on the scene. Not since the 1980's has these s&m crowd favourites featured on the necks of the big fashion names. That's all about to change this season..

Here are some of our picks for the trend.

lost revolution

Seriously, obsessing over the debut collection "Dark Matter" from Australian label Lost Revolution.

Nothing says sexy like a good day of wearing nothing but crystals and cotton.

Have a peeping tom at the rest of the collection here..

Susie's bubble doesn't look like its even close to bursting. 
.. & who could forget that we got to meet her as she posed for us back in May at Australian Fashion Week. Always pushing the fashion boundaries, but nevertheless flawless in her mix-up of bold prints, paisley and Phillip Lim bag, the girl's still killin' it.
We all know 'tis the season for mixing bold prints with.. you guessed it, more bold prints, if we have taught you anything it should be exactly that! Just to back us up Stella McCartney SS12' showed us exactly how it's done with a paisley overload.. Maybe a bit too much, we're still not sure?

So to help you out we created our own take on this new found love for mix print + paisley dressing. What's important here is that you give it a try & make it your own just like Miss Bubble.. of course its optional but we highly recommend you have a go!
Good luck kid.

birthday punches

So I guess I should start by saying that today I am in fact the birthday gal, and given the freedom of doing what ever it is I like on the celebration of my day of birth I am going to flip the switch & write my very first personal Rose&Ham post. Mostly I’m just going to dedicate this post to the nine inspirational women you see above, including my partner in crime/getaway car driver/co-blogger Tessa (aka Ham).

To avoid feeling overly depressed about my growing of age I invited over my nearest and dearest yesterday to share a day of cocktails, laughs & (questionable) food. Sometimes I wonder if fate had dealt me a different hand what my life would be like without the likes of everyone of them. I’m sure these crazy kids would be just as talented and successful without me but would I be the same without them?

Lets make an imaginary toast to my favourite ladies & my true loves, thanks for making the day one to remember.
