Where is Summer

"The Summer that Wasn't" means that there has been a lot more cause for umbrellas and gumboots than is expected in January. But between showers there's been time for sundresses and with people being driven inside, the bars have seen some incredible music.

A rare sun-dress moment. Never one to shy away from colour, Ruby taps into retro pastels and lace details.

Because its just as much about the guitar you choose as how you play it, this girl gets extra points for style.

These Shoes Were Made For Walking

Because, there is nothing like a pair of hot and practical kicks.

Cute and comfy.

This guy created interest to otherwise fairly standard boots by pulling his socks up.

Superbly crafted shoes in a colour never seen in mens shoes. Unfortunately, he got them in France.

Open Air Gallery

This style of street art is appearing around the tracks. It's awesome. who ever this is, it's brilliant. this is one of the smaller pieces. By the time i went to photograph some of the others they had begun to fall down. I'll post more when i see them.

Alex and James, Paddington

The market stall owners are often the coolest cats at the markets. This new poster boy for duke mag is no exception. Check out the mag, it features a killer centerfold.

Hardly over the top or controversial, but this guy does sophisticated really well. He was just as sweet as he looks.

December, Holidays, Woot!

This lady played La Femme with her band "The Huckleberries" on Sunday. Not only was she rad styling, she was pretty much the coolest act all day. Apparently they've broken up. Which if you ask me is a crying shame. I hope I heard wrong.

I couldn't find a link for em. Let me know if you find one.

The fry pan is a bit strange... it's a long story. But the vest and classic black and red combo works. The red is deeper than alot of what has been ahead. A nice sophisticated change.

Gorgeous Kurt, Redfern

Awesome hat and scarf combination. Just works, especially for this farce of a summer.

Matt, Darlinghurst

A stylish take on the flannel shirt.

Let there be Love yo

Just when you thought it was safe. Tie die comes back. This little gem both picks up on the rainbow paddle-pop pasts of all us 90s kids and the 70s penchant for tie die. Are we all having a "forever young" moment?

Forget blonde, you need a nana tint and a pirate scarf

Festive Season Starts Early

well, it seams it creeps further and further forward each year. but bring on the boozy evenings and bad hangovers.

Cropped sleeves, showing socks and a dirty mo... suave and sleaze have a sexy love child.

Alex, Redfern

There are very few people that pull off the bowl-hair cut made so popular by Dior as Saint Augustine Academy's designer Alvin.

Lace details that make the 90s grunge look tasteful

Kate, Surry Hills

On a recent purcahse at Surry Hills market, I found a book with this picture in it. Now, the book was crap, but this is golden. If they aren't the most styling kids I ever seen. Hey-Zues the 70s were cool.
