Tarrawarra Museum of Art









Last Sunday I went to the beautiful TarraWarra Museum of Art. It was such a lovely place and the perfect weather added to a fantastic day! I loved the surroundings and the incredible architecture of the building. There are currently two exhibitions on at the museum, the main one being Master of Stillness: Jeffrey Smart paintings 1940-2011 and the other Nadine Christensen & Anne Wallace: Recent paintings. Both of these exhibitions were marvellous! Such a brilliant day!    

(P.S. sorry for the overload of fashion week reviews, I wasn't planning on posting on any but once Paris came around I fell in love with the collections I reviewed, so I thought it was necessary to post about them!)

Balenciaga Fall 2013

Plenty have questioned if Alexander Wang was up to the challenge of Balenciaga's creative director... Wang has clearly studied the brand's archives, The show felt true to Cristóbal's lines. Cocoon coats, jackets with rounded volumes, petal skirts, molded peplums, bracelet sleeves. I was very impressed with Alexander Wang's work but I think he played things algong the safe side.
I loved...
How the use of the peplum isn't tacky
