Xmas threads

even though the sun wasn't shining on christmas day I braved the rain and put on some Christmas cheer...
I borrowed L's orange shakuhachi dress and tested out my new saltwater sandals
plus the beautiful necklace I got christmas morning from my husband!


signet rings..... big in the 80's and the envy of every girl in school!
they were a must have accessory and often sported your initals!
well got to love my mummy for keeping EVERYTHING so when she did a recent clean out what did she find... yes ma'am none other than our signet rings!
I am now sporting mine on my pinky as its the only finger it will fit on!

everyone say 'chalet'

i tell you what, if i was having a white christmas these place would be at the extreme top of my wish list of places to rest my head and drink rum by the fire
this eclectic hideaway in the french alps (but of course!) was a two year renovation project on the original 1870 structure
the geneis behind the dreamy creation is beligian decorator lionel jadot...good work lionel!! we want to hide here for ever!


we were snap happy at our stall at the bondi farmers markets on saturday!
we were looking extra twin-ish as well it looks like!
dont forget to follow us on instagram @dear_september for all our happy pics!
 sandals! C picked hers up from Italy..mine are a little less exotic and are from general pants
 farm fresh tomatoes we snacked on like apples in C's glitter hand and my pony hide clutch and cresent moon ring
C's fun zara pants and my tiny shorts from Bali xx

the bestest of friends!

we have blogged about her before but feeling so much love this christmas we decided to pull her out of the archives and share our amazing best friend once again!

Its 'woman of the month' time again and  we have picked our super amazing friend Nicci aka Milk!!

Tell us a little about yourself:
I am 27 (which I am still coming to terms with!!) and right now I work for a bank, but I feel I might need a change in the new year! I love the beach, vodka sodas and those who know me well know that red rock deli chips are my biggest weakness! I’m currently obsessed with all things french and one day (if I win powerball) I hope to own a little chateau in France where I can go to escape sydney winters!

Anything your eyeing off to add to your wardrobe this summer?
A limited edition Kate Moss for Top Shop sequin playsuit.... because you can never really own too many sequins!!

Favourite place for a bevvie?
In the world.... it would have to be Harmony’s on Ios, but if were sticking local then I love a bevie anywhere with a view of the ocean

If you could eat anything right now what it would beA big mezze plate complete with olives, haloumi cheese, sun dried tomatoes, prosciutto, hummus and crunchy bread.

The most favourite thing in your wardrobe?
This is tricky but I’m going to say my faux fur vest. I bought it many years ago and I still love getting it out on a cold winters day, even thought the pockets now have holes in them!!What do you want to be when you grow up?A florist.

If I gave you $100 right now (I’m not) what would you do with it?
Ask my boss for the rest of the day off and take my two besties (dear september..... that’s you!) down to north bondi Italian for pasta and sangria jugs in the sunQuote: Life is either a daring adventure or nothing (Helen Keller)

Dinner Party guest list (4 people):
Jamie Oliver.... for assistance in the Kitchen
Stevie Nicks.... to lead the after dinner sing along with her amazing tambourine
Bradley Cooper.... just to look at really ;)
Britney.... I know she’s a little crazy, but I feel like I could talk some sense into her and then we would become great friends

from the archives....henna

this is a post i have blogged before but have recently had loads of interest in henna design.
thought i would re-share this one as its quite interesting!

we here at dear september appreciate all things beautiful, all forms of art, pattern and colour.
recently we have looked more into the art of henna. a traditional Indian form of art on the body.
"Henna, also called henna tree) is a flowering plant used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. The name is also used for dye preparations derived from the plant, and for the art of temporary tattooing based on those dyes.
Henna tattoo's are a temporary tattoo,  a non-permanent image on the skin resembling a real tattoo. Temporary tattoos can be drawn, painted, or airbrushed, as a form of body painting, but most of the time these tattoos are transferred to the skin. Temporary tattoos of any kind are used for numerous purposes including self-expression and identification. For example, actors who wish to add to their character's distinctiveness might take temporary tattoos painted on the skin by hand or using stencils as part of their cosmetic ritual."
henna is said to be a sign of future success and women are often seen decorating their hands for festive occasions.

quote for the day

quote i stumbled upon in jane fondas book last night.
truly one interesting woman.

paint a person ...

Alexa Meade. Amazing.
She creates these amazing portraits, not by aplly arylic paints to canvas but to people!

These people have been painted by Alexa to make it appear as though they are part of the painting. Its incredible and insanely talented!

sarah & sebastian

we have recently discovered jewellery label sarah & sebastian
thank the lucky stars we did!
fine, dainty pieces for ladies and juicy heavy pieces for the gals who like some edge
these are our four favourite pieces...although it was very difficult to chose!
make sure you check out their online store here and add some pieces to your christmas list!


life magazine have released a series of photographs of pablo picasso's collaboration with photographer gjon mili
the photographs taken in 1949 by gjon were created by picasso recreating some of his drawings in the air using a small electric light in a dark room
the two got the idea when gjon, a photographer who used stroboscopic light, showed pablo images he had taken of ice skaters with lights attached to their skates, jumping in the dark.

orange coloured sky ...

the fruit, the smell, the colour. its cheerful in any environment and at the moment we are lusting over all things orange in the home!
it can add a tropical fresh vibe in summer or a cosy, warm vibe in winter. either way it can work in any room. 
check out some great inspiration.
