Susien Chong and partner Nic Briand would have to be 2 of my favourite Australian designers! LOVER the label has managed to convey successfully an eclectic mix of innocent romantic femininity with a touch of rock'n'roll chic creations that you can wear on an everyday bases!! woohoo! love it!

So sad when one of my favourite stores said GOODBYE!
genki was one of those really warm & friendly stores with a french and japanese feel selling everyday must haves from clothing to design magazines to holga cameras.
I got one of my favourite jeans from here by one of my FAVOURITE home grown labels -LOVER - when they collaborated with Levi Jeans - which are soooo cute with a pastel blue vintage type plastic button! (more about LOVER the label in my next post!)
I believe you can still purchase things from the genki website: http://www.genki.com.au/

This is my friend Garth - he is from Virginia, we met when I was in California. He was in a society for the top 2% geniuses in the world which is pobably why he has such an innocent boy-next-door sort of look! Don't get me wrong - I think that is awesome! Really down to earth with no masks at all! For a bit of fun - Gera & I gave him a make over - brought him thrift shopping, styled his hair just a little and...
hehehe we told him to pose like that in the above photos!! I like the following photo better because it shows his true down-to-earth self more!

There is a story behind this photo & the story goes...
The night i met my dear friend Gera.
i was at a break dancing competition in down town San Jose & noticed this stunning girl in this awesome dress! i had to go over and ask her where it came from..
TIFFY - "Hi! i love your dress! did you make it?"
Gera - "No, It's Marc Jacobs."
TIFFY - "Who's Marc Jacobs??" (in my head hahaha.. i had never heard of him before this)
Gera - "Wow! love your accent, where are you from?"
and this was the beginning of an ever lasting friendship!
I MISS YOU GERA BELLA!!!
