G R E E N & G O L D

I don't think there is anything better than an Aussie Christmas. The cicadas singing, the sky blue and my very favourite a swim at the beach to cool down after a scorching day. Well to tell you the truth i haven't been anywhere else during the Christmas holidays but in my opinion nothing beats loading anything more than the tent, a few sarongs and a good book in the car, driving north along the beautiful beaches. Pure bliss. 
The count down is on until total relaxation.. 5 days woo hoo! But don't you worry i have hundreds of new photos coming your way! 

Here are a few shots from the bold shoot- Green and Gold.
Hope you all like, a different take from my usual bohemian style. I guess it has more of  a classic, chanel look. But can still be styled with whatever look you choose :) 
Items will be on sale as of the 16th of January. 4 weeks to go. yay x

look book

Over the past couple of days i have been thinking about what to write in my 'about' section on my website. As you have probably realised I'm not much of a writer, not that i don't know what to say, just not knowing how to say it is more of the problem.. If you do know me you would of realised i just keep talking in a round about way until i make sense orrr i maybe i never do :S. I do have a whole lot to say most of the time, but when i click on a blank page all about me and Hilda Mae... i get nothing... fancy that! 

I guess that why i like to turn to anything in the form of art hold it up and say, you get it? So hopefully my pictures are a whole lot of words -but i will try my best to get better i promise!!!!

So i had to get that out the way lets start again shall we :)
The photography below is a combination of what my first collection revolves around, i love variation and contrast , i like to put things together that aren't the most predictable. My vision of Bohemian Glamour was my main inspiration. Think a cross between Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. Or Tree of Life and Cue!

A big big thank you again to the Photographer, Linda Wales, who took absolutely stunning pictures. Model: Sophie Crenigan- a natural beauty and Make Up: Danielle Hampton, a true artist.
More pictures coming from this day with a piece about inspiration! xx Have a good night :)

let the games begin

After such an eventful week, it was a nice surprise to receive my Swing Tags and labels. It was so much fun finally being able to brand my clothes.. but the thought of stitching them all will be a big effort! 
Another amazing photo shoot is planned this weekend so fingers crossed this silly weather goes away and we can enjoy a true aussie summer. 
I'm guessing the rain has stopped for the moment as the cicada's outside my window are making such a noise! 
Hope you enjoy this little post as another piece of this huuuge puzzle falls together ( if only a fairy would sew the labels on for me.... Mum?) 
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend :) xx

sneak peek

Just thought id be nice and give you all an insight to the happenings at Hilda Mae lately.
With this very short preview for whats in store ( quite literally in fact!) 
A big big thank you to the Photographer, Linda Wales, who took absolutely stunning pictures.
Model: Sophie Crenigan- a natural beauty and Make Up: Danielle Hampton, a true artist.
It takes alot more than garments and styling to create such images and i couldn't be more impressed by the combination of talent that went into creating them.
My vision of Bohemian Glam lives on :)
