Neo-Masquerade Ball - Onyx Bar

Last Thursday was rather a fun day for me as I got to test my styling chops at the promo shoot for the Neo-Masquerade Ball. Cinching gorgeous gals into corsets and sneaking peaks at the bare chested lads, pretty fun indeed I would say.

The gold dress front and centre is from my personal collection. Its an awesome 80's strapless with a divine asymmetrical hemline in a giant tulle and fabric bustle. My favourite.

More Ginger Fox vintage pieces in this lot, can you spot them?

Laith McGregor: taking doodles to a whole new level.

My new favourite show is Art Nation on the ABC! Each week they showcase amazing Aussie artists who are producing absolutely incredible and inspirational works. I keep stumbling across it during my quite Sunday afternoons, but I think I will have to lock it in from now on for fear I'll miss out on my addictive art fix. One of the artist on show this week really blew me away. Melbournite, Laith McGregor invests countless hours to create intricate and strangely sublime images of bearded men. What is truly incredible is his medium of choice is Biros; Bic biros to be exact. The textures, detail and shading are phenomenal and the blue of the pen gives the hairy men a deep glow.

Just as a matter of interest, given the mass popularity of beards and moustaches; just when did facial hair become so cool?

Ginger's style guide: Winter

Hey girls, have a seat.
We need to have a chat because I'm worried about you. Ok we don't live in the UK and it doesn't snow, but ladies its chilly! Your going to catch your death running from pub to club in your saucy mini dress and heels. Sure we all get nice and warm rocking out on the dance floor, but what happens when its time to leave and the taxi's are few and far between.
So here is my public service announcement - rug up sweeties. Here are some tips on how to stay stylish and sexy while keeping the chills at bay.

Take a cardigan, wear a blazer or just throw on an over sized sweater. Better yet wear a gorgeous coat and just leave it in the coat check.

Stockings! There is no need to freeze just to show off your stems. Your look may even look that little more polished with a set of chic black stockings. Here is the important part, look out for the denier (that's the thickness) If you want a really warm set of stockings then a higher denier is better. I wear at least 70 but I have seen them go up to 200 denier.

Boots! Oh so in right now AND you can sneak a pair of socks under them to keep your tootsies real cosy like.

Lastly, for that extra little bit of warmth you cant go past a street cuddle with the boy you took out (or just found ;)

The speil

Despite its abundance on the style scene, gorgeous floral still holds a special place in my heart. I just thought I would share some of the frocks that have recently joined my collection and are just too darling to be overlooked.

Quick snaps from Fremantle

I was having dinner at my favourite freo foodcourt and I just couldnt resist whipping out my iphone and taking some quick pictures of some fellow dinners. Autumn stripes 70's sweater, painted leather jacket and standout style from the lovely proprietor of funky vintage store, Off the Wall. Not a bad dinner I say.
