Love All

In celebration of the final night of the Australian Open, I bring you these highly impractical and light-hearted Thirties-inspired tennis outfits. They might not make you go faster on the court, but they sure do look good.

Torn from the pages of a vintage 90s Italian Vogue, I can see no photographer credited, or perhaps I have lost them when I trimmed the edges. I can only guess that it is Arthur Elgort, although a couple of those black and white shots put me in mind of Ellen von Unwerth. Both photographers are favourites of mine, so it’s a clear case of love all.

Poppies for Remembrance

It’s Anzac Day. Today we honour the 60,000 Australian and 18,000 New Zealand men who gave their lives for their nations during the First World War.

When I was in high school the World Wars were a theme in my English and history classes over the last three years of my schooling. I read so many books and poems that moved me to tears; the horrifying numbers of the dead were drilled into us so that we wished we could forget.

Another Anzac Day tradition is the footy match between Essendon and Collingwood, which is a little more cheerful. Go Bombers!
