do not tempt me as i am spoken for.

anyone who knows me and my wardrobe knows i need not another vintage dress. anyone who knows me and my wardrobe knows i could never say no... not to a dress made for twirling, not to a dress from the tailors stories. jessie x x

mr: you look like a horse! 
miss: well in that case you can call me... periwinkle.

mina be mine.

 those pockets and socks and your coyly tipped hat.

why, so shy in a print so pretty.

trees that have leaves like those of Christmas.

a small creature pinned to your right shoulder.

no longer at this address

my housemate rushed up the flight of stairs that separates her room from mine this noon delivering good news - post. and from a certain someone special. i immediately stopped in my tracks and got out a notebook to return the pleasure of pen-to-paper. placing the ready to send envelope on my drawer i noticed something a little canny. my perfume was begging me to change my addressee's details. keep an eye out miss (dior) cherrie the postman has a small something in his mailbag for you. now don't be confused and stamp it 'return to sender' i may have intentionally removed a double consonant from your name. oh the joys of jotted jargon on ruled lines! (do excuse the pink photographic haze, my curtains droop from the ceiling illuminating a fairy floss glow). jessie x

a whale of a time

 hello. hello (arms dangling in the air above my ears). over here, seat B102 second from the front row (grin! grin! grin!). oh how lucky i have been!! granted 'blogger' accreditation to LMFF this past week its been runways and wide-eyes and goodie bags in tow. why bushy tailed me hasn't taken off her felt floppy hat, notepad scribbled full of trends and textures and 'must have in my winter wardrobe' buys. presented by my friends at frankie magazine Runway 03 proved by far to be my pinch-me favourite. labels including Limedrop and Gorman took to the tepee hut long road in creepers and pom-poms, prints and sheers a plenty. Leonard Street made my pencil blunt from jotting eagerly with their head-to-toe apple and bird ensembles. ooh and the whales, yes we will soon be wearing whales! a pink kind of girlie life in light blue has never been so dreamy. have i already gushed at how lucky i have been?! ladies and lads please take your seats the show is about to commence!

Model: Felicity Curnow, Photographer: Bridgette Kokkinos, Stylist: Jessie Aylmore

 hello lovelie readers. it's not often that I beg and plead with you for a little favour but it seems fitting this one occasion. as we all know breaking into the creative industry (any industry for that matter) is somewhat harder than it should be! but what's a girl to do when she can't help but have a dream in her heart? try her luck that's what!

 for those of you who haven't heard Mimco are running a "style our next campaign" competition based on their current season's vision, The Dreamwarp Society. calling all up-and-coming fashion bloggers the competition offers entrants the opportunity to be crowned the assistant stylist on location for The Dreamwarp Society: Season 2 photo shoot.

 here's the deal - the winner will be chosen based on the creative image sporting the most votes at the end of the month as picked by the public. hence, if you would please forget all previous warnings this once and put all your eggs (votes) into one basket (that basket being mine) i would be forever grateful. simply click on my image as viewed above and then double click 'like'. i won't sleep soundly until all votes are collected and tallied, so until then pretty pretty please... vote, vote, vote!!  Jessie xx
 p.s. share this shout-out with a friend and my world will be nothing but blue skies.

elastic ankles

puddles will soon be leaps and bounds in my soon to be pair of green-brown booties. the custom made soles are fitted and fiddled with by Melbournian creative Claire Best. with a skip and a hop you too can purchase your own splish-splash vintage pull-ons here. we're sure to be the (claire) best dressed poncho wearing elastic ankles come the rain (even if we have hair like a wet mop).
