Vanishing Elephant Autumn 2013

Finding work appropriate clothing is not as easy as it should be. I’m always looking for smart, stylish clothes that I can work into my teacher wardrobe. All the better if they are a tad quirky and cool. Because I don’t want to actually look like a teacher (did your science teacher wear short shorts with long socks and sandals? What a classic look).

Vanishing Elephant came across my radar last year when the always cool but never trendy iskip itrip stocked the Sydney designers first Womanswear collection. With this latest collection I definitely see some pieces that could fit my work vibe (plus my wardrobe really needs a overhaul).  You can view the entire lookbook at Vogue Australia.

I’m pretty sure Jennifer Lawrence and I would get along. Have you watched the press conference she did after her win at the Oscars? The woman knows how to deal with stupid questions.

Sure the dress fabric has a little upholstery vibe going on but who the hell cares.                         She is fabulous. Have you seen Silver Linings Playbook yet? I loved it.

Meanwhile I’m stitching the lovely Satsuki blouse from Victory Patterns. It was all going swell until I fucked up and stitched the seams under the sleeves on the wrong side. Yeah….trying to channel some Jennifer cool as I reach for the unpick.
