I first came across the quirky, unique fashions of Olga de Polga whilst rooting through the rails in the designer basement section at TOPSHOP, Oxford Street, London.
I was automatically drawn to their playful patterns and eccentric colours.

Their prices were extremely affordable and even better each piece felt truly one of a kind, therefore limiting the risk of bumping into a clone!

So when I moved to Melbourne you can imagine how crazily excited I was to see that they had opened their very own store in Prahran.

With living in the area I find it extremely hard to walk past the shop everyday with out having a peek inside, their window shouts out to me,
ruby, black, stripes, ruffles, bows, vintage, hearts, floral, emeralds, everything any girl could dream of!

It's like you're own little Alice in Wonderland.

Through friends I was introduced to 'BONJAH' and having seen them a few times over the short period I have been in Melbourne they just get better and better!

Not only are they a group of lovely guys but they're sound is extremely unique, they mix an array of different instruments with some fun, soul loving grooves!

Check them out at this link:


Western Swing, Boogie Woogie & Rhythm & Blues, I love Rockabilly! But my main fascination has always been the fashion! From as young as I can remember I have wanted to don curled bangs, red lipstick and bombshell figure fitting dresses!

I guess my first attraction to the Rockabilly Fashion Scene came from watching 'GREASE' which then led me to delve further and further into this style and era of fashion and music.

To sum up Rockabilly chic, you want to aim for Novelty prints, bold colours, patterns including cherries or anchors....halters, strapless and backless dress silhouettes. Wiggle dresses, trump full skirts. Pencil Skirts, cigarette and capri pants, short sleeved vintage blouses with ruffles and polkadot designs. And the most important things, Bold coloured hair & Red lipstick!

I have found some great online shops all over the world which specialise in rockabilly fashion for both men and women but for those for you who live in OZ get yourself down to a ROUTE 66 store or buy online at their website

Not only do they have a wide array of different designs and styles for both girls and guys but the stores also have a great atmosphere, while you're delving into the racks you'll also find yourself bopping along to some of the great Rock n Roll legends such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly!

Although Rockabilly Fashion is from the is definitely the way forward!

With his chilled, husky vocals and her majestic talent this brother- sister duo are what the music world has been longing for.
Their lyrics are simple yet purely heart-warming.

With their new album 'Down the Way' they include some of the most beautiful guitar solos and sweet acoustic rifts.

His voice gradually captures you in a sort of an emotional climax, whereby you relate to every last lyric.

My favourite track on their record, 'Big Jet Plane' take a look at the video below:


Although trying hard not to be a fan, I can't help myself doing the 2-step to her catchy tunes, but when it comes to her outfits I just don't know what to think anymore! I know her style is meant to be weird and wacko but sometimes I find myself cringing or even laughing at her!

When she originally hit the music scene, as a PVC dominatrix, big bowed diva, her style was fresh, inventive and sexy, but a few million record sales down the line and she believes dressing as a bee keeper/ funeral mourner to her sisters graduation fashionable!

Just what have her house of GaGa team done to the poor girl?
