 TREND TALKS WITH OUR BEAUTIFUL HEAD DESIGNER TEIGHAN GRAVES.

GET HIGHER (WAISTED)

Screen Shot 2015-05-10 at 5.37.53 PM

The waist is making a climb far up past the belly button for a look that is super slimming and very sexy. It’s not just a high waist, it’s an exaggerated silhouette that results in the look of long, lean legs and a teeny tiny mid-section. Sign me up, immediately.

NAVIGATE NAVY

Screen Shot 2015-05-10 at 5.38.12 PM

This season it is all about the navy .. Cute and quirky prints of all shapes and sizes . Spots are making abig come back in an abstract way along side vintage florals and a hint of bohemian vibes . Pair this maxi with boots and a brim and get ready to rock.

BOHO IS HERE TO STAY

Screen Shot 2015-05-10 at 5.38.22 PMScreen Shot 2015-05-10 at 5.38.28 PM

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. If you haven’t got your Splendour outfit sorted yet than look no further, Polly The Label has got your covered.

Darling Tats are bringing some sparkle to your wardrobe

Hi gorgeous girls! I’m popping my head in here on the Polly blog to tell you guys about gorgeous new product launching with Polly today!

IMG_6885 IMG_6891

But first, let me introduce myself! I’m Jo Klima: artist, creative spirit, pattern junkie, wanderer and boss goddess over at The Darling Tree. I’m always in creation mode to make art and designs that brings lots of beauty, joy and soul into the lives of my spirited sisters around the globe!

Just recently at the The Darling Tree I designed a new range of gold metallic tattoos to inspire self-expression with some beautiful (and temporary) art for your skin, and I’m so excited to bring these beauties to Polly!

The designs are inspired by some of the things I love the most; Geometric shapes with a touch of sacred and elemental symbology, Aztec patterns that’ll have you dreaming of faraway places, and inspiring and soulful words to fill your day with beautiful intentions.

Head on over Princess Polly to grab yours!

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.

Burnt Breakfast Tell All

Burnt Breakfast

If you follow us on instagram and have been seeing the “Burnt Breakfast x Princess Polly” images, you may have been wondering, “WTF is ‘Burnt Breakfast?’”

In a nutshell, it’s the name of the crazy-rad creative couple— Pixi & Jesse— who we teamed up with last week to bring you our Polly the Label Valentines Day lookbook, Heart Break Hotel. Pixi  is a Balinese/Australian fashion photographer and her other half, Jesse, does the videography and creative direction.

In the cutest little interview ever, they share the story behind the name ‘Burnt Breakfast’, dish on creative inspiration, and give us their best love advice.

J:  Paint Pallet (because he thinks it’s a lolly pizza) artist_palette-small

What is the story behind Burnt Breakfast? When did you guys start doing creative shoots together, and how did the name come about?
We first started working as a team for a friends label with Jesse filming and I photographing, with our talents put together we soon realised that our creativity and vision combined was something that clicked very quickly. After a few drinks one night and much discussion we came to the conclusion that everyone likes breakfast… but we prefer it burnt. Haha

 What inspires you?
J: Always find myself inspired by directors that take the extra step to create an abstract frame in a motion picture.
P: My favorite photographer is Lara Jade, like myself she grew up in a small town, she started shooting purely self portraits and is now an internationally acclaimed fashion photographer living and working in NYC.

 What is your go to music to play when you’re shooting?
J: Generally before we start shooting I always pick a song that I most likely will use for the video, and I play it over and over until everyone hates it.
P: … Beyoncé, every time.

What do you do when you are not shooting?
J: I’m a surfer, I generally like to spend most of my time at the beach
P: Well, I date a surfer so I generally spend most of my time at the beach..

Favourite instagram account that you follow:
@banksyblog
@lifewithoutandy
@marcushyde
@beyonce (obvi)

Go to outfit when you’re in a rush:
P: Sequins
J: Whatever’s on the floor (but that’s the answer for any outfit)

Three things you couldn’t live with out?
P: Easy Mac, Apple Mac and……. Jesse. How else would I get my Easy Mac?
J: Chocolate, surfing and my bebez

Any plans for Valentines Day?
P: Well, Jesse planed our last love day so I  guess it’s my turn to make the fairy bread.

Pixie, whats the most romantic thing Jesse has ever done for you?
Sent me flowers to work 3 times (without even being in trouble), and 2 of which I wasn’t actually at work that day.

Describe each other in one word:
J: rice
P: curly

Best love advice you’ve ever been given:
P: Marry your best friend.
J: Don’t EVER, EVER forget her date of birth

What can we look forward to seeing in the near future from you guys?
Upcoming for Burnt Breakfast we have some really cool projects in the mix, including directing and filming a music video. Whilst we are holidays in Bali, we are designing & creating a few apparel items for Burnt Breakfast. And on our return we are planning a sneaky instagram competition… we’ll keep you posted ;)

XOXO JESSE & PIXIE
