I couldn’t believe it, when I read the above article I recognised the name immediately. Shanna Jackway – where had I heard that name before, I thought to myself, then it hit me. I’d watched one of her fashion shoots for The Adelaide* Magazine in September last year.

Last year I was lucky enough to do work experience at The Adelaide* Magazine which is published monthly and comes free in The Advertiser (Adelaide’s newspaper). I went along on one of the photo shoots where I met Shanna. She was beautiful and seemed very bubbly and happy. She brang along her own music and sung and bopped away in between shots.

These are the photos from the shoot taken from The Adelaide* Magazine November 2011 issue.

And these are the images from the May issue of Vogue Australia (on sale now) sourced from pridemodels.com.au.

Isn’t she gorgeous, and I’m loving that white dress!

Yay for Adelaide talent! What do you think of her look?

I’ve decided to begin a new post titled ‘Favourite Outfits of the Week’ which will feature 3-5 bloggers per week. I will make my decision based on their style, originality, blogs, and of course their outfit!

This week I have chosen to feature four gorgeous girls: Becky (Becky Bed Bug), Yasmin (Yasmincruz), Joyce (Joyful Outfits), and Laura (Style and Sushi). I hope you can take the time to visit their blogs – I love them, and I’m sure you will too!

^ Becky wears Peacocks top, Cath Kidson skirt, and New Look Shoes. Visit Becky’s blog here.

^ Yasmin wears Gucci shades, American College bomber jacket, Mads Norgaard top and joggers, Zara suede bluchers, and Stine Goya scarf. Visit Yasmin’s blog here.

It’s pretty windy in Adelaide today, so this is one of the decent shots I got. My hair was out of control! This is one of my favourite t-shirts – I love Marilyn! And these are my new cargo pants. Happy Friday everyone :)

If you haven’t already heard, this is The See-Through Dress, also known as the Intamacy 2.0. The dress appears as above, but when the woman wearing it becomes aroused and her heart beat increases the dress’s material (leather and smart e-foils) detects this and becomes transparent .

The creator of Intamacy 2.0, Dann Roosegaarde has already won design awards for his new creation which he says “explores the relationship between intimacy and technology.”

What an interesting concept and design. But I’m not sure I’d actually wear it. What do you think?

Last week I graduated from university! Yay! It was a lovely sunny morning in Adelaide and excitement was in the air. We put our gowns and hats on and proceeded to the theatre where we all sat awaiting our family and friends to fill the empty seats behind us.

The theatre was soon full and the ceremony began. In single file we walked back stage. Nerves were building. Then it was my turn. I remember walking out on stage toward the chancellor who would give me my certificate. That’s all I remember until I reached the other side of the stage. The rest was a blur.

The best part of the day was finding my parents in the foyer after the ceremony. We took photos and they gave me a cute graduation bear. By this time it was about 12.30pm. We made our way to Leigh Street where we had a reservation at Rigoni’s for lunch.

Leigh Street is only small but has real character; cobbled stone instead of bitumen and black street lamps, along with cute shops, a mens barber and nice places to eat.

The following are the photos I took during our lunch.

My graduation bear

Just after the ceremony

And what I wore underneath. Mum took this as I was walking to the car – and that’s my cat haha. This is one of my favourite dresses; I can dress it up or down and the colour is different and goes with a lot.

Free Fusion Peter Pan dress.

Sass fur jacket, Supre` top, Sass skirt, Colette necklace, Forever New boots.

I love this outfit. My parents got me the fur jacket as a graduation present last week so I worked the outfit around it. I’ve had the boots since last winter which I wore non-stop; they’re an essential for any winter wardrobe. The top and necklace were cheap finds which match really well. I also decided to curl my hair which gives the outfit a bit of a 70’s look.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend :)
