Exotic plants

•••
This weekend I was lost among a little section of the Botanical Gardens in Sydney. Somehow even in Sydney's windy winter, all sorts of plants are still thriving there. Wandering among the gardens was like stepping into little microclimates. Moving from one season to another.

Under my umbrella

•••
The raindrops land in a perfect circle around me. My hair is wet and sticks to my face and neck. The hem of my dress is damp from walking in the wet grass. And I wait for that perfect moment when the rain stops. That moment when everything around you has a sparkle and a glittering glaze. Where there is a scent of freshness in the air.

Serenity

•••
Searching for a moment of serenity. Like a scene from a perfect painting. Where water ripples flow motionless. Where the sound of nothing echoes.

Weathering the Storm

•••
A storm is one of nature's mysteries. Perhaps her way of challenging us. If you take a moment to reflect, you will perhaps remember the storms you have endured in the past. They come in all shapes and forms.

Walking my flamingos

•••
Have you ever wondered why flamingos are pink? They aren’t born that way. In fact, flamingos are born with grey feathers and their color comes from their diet. Pigmentation in the shrimp and algae they eat give them their vibrant color. The healthier they are, the more pink and orange they become.

Forbidden garden

•••
Step into the forbidden garden. I dare you try just once. The flowers smell of sweat honeydew. The grass, soft like a bed of feathers. Apples and grapes hang magically around. A soft song in the distance calms you.

Petal skirt

•••
A beautiful skirt is like a flower bud. It sits in place for a while. But then comes alive full of shape and vibrancy.

Favourite dresses

•••
Long dresses were made for fun. Forget the perfect hair, elegant poses and polite conversation for a day. Your colourful long dress deserves some fun. A little vintage fun perhaps.

Lady mirage

•••
Come to me now don't be scared. Milk and honey have I prepared. For I smell that hunger in your veins. I will lift from your body all your pains. I have water that's cool and calming and clear. Come to me you have nothing to fear. I will quench that aching thirst you feel. I am Lady Mirage, I promise I'm real.

The Strand Arcade

•••
The Strand Arcade is a little piece of Victorian architecture that lies in the heart of the modern city of Sydney. It was the perfect place to feature this glamorously classic dress.
