Soo we want to let you in on a little secret….. we have found the most FABULOUS jewellery in all the land and we’re so excited to share WILD The Label with you.

The beautiful WILD founder Madison took the time out of her busy schedule to give us the inside scoop on WILD.  Stay tuned for the 411 on a brand we are seriously crushing on HARD.

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 12.30.25 AM
How did this Journey begin?
Growing up I had always loved making jewellery but I never had any formal training. A couple of years ago when I was still in high school I wanted a leather choker with a Hamsa Hand on it but couldn’t find any good quality stockists in Perth or online so I bought the materials I needed and easily put one together. Plenty of people started asking where I’d gotten the choker from and I quickly realized there was a huge gap in the market! I quickly set up an Instagram account and an online store. I came up with the name of my brand when I was listening to Wild Things by San Cisco! Since then I tend to create whatever I feel like wearing that day; this has led to adding necklaces, body chains and head pieces to my online store.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I follow a lot of fashion bloggers so that helps to see what’s popular around the world, but I’ve also found lately that going to music festivals is a great source of bohemian inspiration!
Describe the typical Wild girl?
A Wild girl follows her own trends, she wears things that make her happy and has confidence dripping off her. A bohemian girl at heart, her constant need to explore always lead to wild adventures.
Whats the future for Wild?
I recently created a new range of chokers and hand pieces using gorgeous rainbow moonstone pendants which will be released soon! As well as loads of Turkish coin jewellery.
However, 2 years ago I didn’t even know I would soon be creating a jewellery label, or that it would become so successful in such a short amount of time, so I can’t imagine where Wild will be in the next few years!

New styles dropping always, so stay tuned!!!

☽ Sasquatch Festival 2015 Photo Diary ☾

☽→Sasquatch 2015←☾

Last weekend we teamed up with two beautiful American bloggers/models/besties/youtuber/girl bosses as they took on Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington, USA.

Hailee Keanna & Hannah Gale were fully pimped out in Polly and so ready for the three day music festival with a killer lineup: Flume, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, of Monsters and Men, Tame Impala, to name a FEW.

As if the lineup isn’t enough to give you serious FOMO, the location is incredible! It takes place at one of the most beautiful concert venues in the world “The Gorge Amphitheater”. Think views of lavender mountains and rivers, being surround by luscious green grass and gorgeous tall pine trees, etc. #UNREAL

MEET HAILEE: Most frequently known as Hailee Bobailee, unicorn whisperer, Youtube sensation and super hot model! With a body to die for and a extremely good-looking boyfriend Hailee is perfection. WAIT THERE IS MORE — as if she couldn’t get any better, Hailee is a huge dork! When not on set modelling, she can we found in her natural habitat, Comic Con, dressed up as an elf from Lord of the Rings. She is literally the hottest nerd on planet earth.

MEET HANNAH: Can we just take a moment to appreciate this girls face, body and just ERRYTHING. Hannah is the full package, blonde bombshell blogger, high fashion model, and creative genius behind jewelry brand  Hailana Hollow, which so co-owns with model bestie Hailee. Chick can dress. We are crushing pretty hard.

SASQUATCH Q&A

So gals, what was the most crazy thing you got up to at Sasquatch?
Hailee: At one point these two random girls invited us into the artists lounge, and as soon as we got in and started seeing some of the “famous people” and feeling cool, I said something about one of the bands I was excited to see and the girl goes, “That’s my ex boyfriend you idiot!” and tells us to leave. How was I supposed to know! That was our two minutes of fame. OMG also we were on a morning walk and passed a bunch of port-a-potties, and this guy stumbled out saying, “Hey neighbors!” And we were like, “Hey, did you sleep in there?” His response was a big smile and, “Oh yea!” Then he ran off. Hahaha festival life.
Hannah: I feel like the whole weekend was non-stop crazy! I’ve never danced so hard in my life! One night we stayed up till the sunrise just going from camp to camp meeting people making friends. It’s amazing how music can bring so many different people together.
Who was your favorite artist/ who did you fan girl over?
Hailee: Obviously, Lana is queen of everything in all of the land, so I fan girled over her the most. Especially when we made eye contact. Oh man.
Over all, my favorite was Kendrick Lamar, because he kept the energy up and had me dancing in ways I’ve never done before hahah. He also brought two fans up to rap with him, and the girl KILLED it. Coolest thing i’ve ever seen!
Hannah – MØ!!!! Talk about girl power. I had heard a few of her songs before but watching her perform blew my mind and the way she interacted with the crowd. She was crowd surfing and waving like we were her best friends not fans.
What was your favorite Princess Polly outfit?
Hailee: Can I say all of them? The Co – ord was my favorite. I am OBSESSED with them right now. Mostly because of what their called, and when Australians say the word! Out of all the outfits, it got the most questions from people at Sasquatch asking where i got it.
Hannah: That’s a tough one. I loved them all. I got a ton of compliments on the Bondi Maxi Dress. It was perfect to wear to the festival because the material was thin enough and with the low back I didn’t get over-heated dancing. Plus it looked amazing with my cowboy boots.
How did you find sleeping in a tent for 3 nights?
Hailee: The worst part of the festival! Last year at Coachella I stayed at a mansion, and this was my first time camping. ever. I was a fish out of water, a city girl out of her bed hahah. Honestly it wasnt as bad as I thought. I only saw a spider crawling on my sleeping bag once. Still bitter at Hannah for having a glamorous hippy house in her van.
Hannah: I got to sleep in the van with about 6 foam pads under me and 4 blankets so I slept amazing. I’m not sure about Hailee in her tent. It was cold at night but by the time the sun came up it was cooking. Having a van to sleep in made it so much more comfortable.
What are your festival essentials?
Hailee: Dry shampoo, baby wipes (what we call a “festival shower”) and expensive perfume so you can still feel human. My temperpedic pillow from home was also key. OH and earplugs. The campsites party 24/7.
Hannah: Wet wipes and dry shampoo! Sometimes the shower lines are way too long you might have to skip one. Or you have to take a hippie shower with a few bottled waters. 
Why do you love Princess Polly?
Hailee:  Back when tumblr was a thing, Australians were the only thing on the feed because they had the best fashion and photos on there. I think you guys started high-waisted shorts and crop tops years ago. So now I found the perfect Aussie online shop! I love Polly because, obviously, it carries all the best Aussie fashions that I can feel super cool and flouncy wearing. And that free US shipping, holllllla.
Hannah: I’m from the U.S. but I’m always obsessed with Australian clothing companies. I feel like you guys are just doing something right over/down under there. Princess Polly carries everything my heart could ever desire. I feel like my outfits I wore to Sasquatch touched base on every style personality I have- hippie-western-rocker-boho-sweet. Princess Polly just has it all, for every girl with any style.

Boho has taken a twist.. It is definitely here to stay (which we are super happy about) Instead of fun summery prints it’s all about the shape, Oversized sleeves, elasticated waists, tassels and tie up neckline’s are the must have’s this fall.

How to Take the Perfect Instagram

With over half a million followers on instagram, our girl Sjana (@sjanaelise) knows a bit about how to post a good instagram. Here are her top 5 tips for the perfect instagram photo:

1. The background is SUPER important

As a fashion blogger, it’s your job to make the clothes stand out and look good. Keeping the background simple and clean makes you and your outfit the focus of the photo. Avoid busy backgrounds that detract from the clothes and colours that clash with your outfit.

Try to take your photos in beautiful settings (examples: sunrise on the beach, next to an amazing pool, in front of a bush with beautiful flowers, etc.) OR in front of cool, simple walls (examples: brick, old and cracked with vines, white washed wooden fences, etc.)

2. Always make sure lines are straight.

If there are lines in the background of your photo (especially if there is a horizon) use an editing app to rotate the photo so that the lines are straight. This automatically takes a picture from a 7 to a 10!

3. Be candid.

The camera is really good at capturing your true emotions. If something is staged, it usually looks staged. If you are uncomfortable, it usually shows. By the same token, if you are genuinely happy and being yourself it shows. The best way to avoid awkward photos when fashion blogging is to get a friend take to the photos. Have them make you laugh. When you do it together and have fun with it, your personality will shine through. People love when they can see someone’s unique personality through their photos.

4. Work the angles to make your legs look longer.

If you’ve ever taken a selfie, you know the dramatic difference the angle of the camera can make.  Same goes for full body shots. In order to make your legs look longer, shoot from below!

5. Let the sun shine on your face.

When taking photos outside, natural sunlight always makes the for the most beautiful photos.  Standing in direct sunlight is not ideal, as it can make you a little squinty. But if you are standing somewhere with shadows it always looks pretty to have the sun on your face.
