So you could say im a bit obsessed with this label after i discovered them at MBFWA earlier this month. You know when you find a label and everything they stock would suit your style and fashion sense to perfection. Let me introduce By Johnny to you all. I love the prints, cuts and the bold colours used in all their pieces. The price range doesn't break the bank either which is perfect for us broke fashion bloggers :)
One last MBFWA post before we head into May. Here is a collection of the wonderful fashionistas i got to meet and hangout with during the week. It was amazing to have some of my Melbourne blogger friends there. Felt like we were just at another event. I hope we all get to do it again next year...bigger and better :D

Love seeing Melbourne designers getting the credit they deserve. What better way then at the wedding of one of the best basketball players of all time. I've been a fan of J'Aton Couture for a while now and am so happy to see them succeed in an international market. Mr Jordans model wifey Yvette Prieto looks amazing in J'Aton Couture.
Last week we were lucky enough to get an interview with the boys from Balla. This week we celebrate their new Safari range launch by featuring some of their gear on this weeks outfit posts. As i mentioned in a post earlier i have been living in this jumper since its gotten colder in Melbourne. Its so warm and perfect for when your just chilling and i love the purple and blues hues used as they are two of my favorite colours. I thought i would girly up this mens crew-neck by adding a pink beanie and some pink lippy. Even better is the location where all three colours i used in the outfit were on the wall. I remember walking past it one day and thought of the Balla shoot straight away. im always in work mode even when im out socialising haha. Hope you like the photos. More Balla photos to come this week so stay tuned.

The only place in the world where you can get your hair cut, shop and have live Dj playing the latest Hip Hop tunes. Without a doubt i was in Hip Hop heaven when i was going down the escalators to Culture Kings. I first heard about the store when i was up in Brisbane for Fashion week back in 2011. But i didn't want to carry my suitcase down so i made sure i visited the sydney store when i was down for Australian fashion week earlier this month. I went there to do a post on the store and ended up making a MUST BUY list in my head while working. Probably one of the worst things about working in fashion. The staff there were just amazing too. They all so down to earth and friendly and helped me when i was looking for certain items. I ended up going there 2 days in a row with my busy fashion week schedule. one day to shoot. one day to buy. And im so glad i didn't do it all in one day as the second day i was there Tinie Tempah was in store. I was on the train headed there after a show to buy me some goodies. Tinie was on the front of the MX which was just being handed out at the stations. As i went into the store i saw their facebook status about him being in store and was pretty crazy after just reading about him 5 mins ago. there was fans taking photos while him and his crew shopped I approached him and gave him the MX n he was like 'are you sure i can keep it' lol i was yeah yeah no worries (theres a billion free copies at the station haha) and got a photo with him. I saw his Instagram. They cleaned Culture Kings up quite well. So for all you lovers of Hip Hop and Fashion like me make sure you head down to their stores whenever you're in Brisbane, Gold Coast or Sydney. You don't know who you might bump into.
