Exploring city streets, scouring vintage shops and flipping through travel books, she lures you away from home on her favourite day, her most inspired day... Saturdays.Spontaneous, wild, free-spirited and undone attitude, she is a quick-witted vagabond and she’ll swiftly seize your heart.The Saturdays girl dresses in rich layers of printed rayon, textured knits, distressed jersey and vintage denim -- she cinches satin ties around her waist, scarves in her hair and treasures vintage T-shirts dug up in flea markets.She wears florals from Mexico and paisleys from India. A worldwide aesthetic inspires her, she is edgy, electric, effortless and authentic.She’s on a mystified journey and she hasn’t even left the city...
Somedays Lovin -- an all-time favourite Australian label of mine -- have put together something really sweet for their Winter '13 campaign, Saturdays.
Not being a native of the city where I live, I know what it's like to wake up on a Saturday and think... where to today? What can I uncover?
But then... I remember the overwhelming delight of my teenage years being a traveller in my hometown -- with freshly minted driver's licences and beat-up learner cars, we'd drive down strange roads and across paddocks to find the best freshwater creek, the most secluded beach, a friend's cabin in the hills or a hidden op shop.
Exploring, learning and discovering... They're such important things to remember to do.
Oh, and the humming bird shirt with leather pants and low-cut boots? Damn right.
