Photos: The Fashionisto Due in no small part to budgetary constraints (and the fact that my daily wardrobe is ascetic to say the least), I don’t often watch the menswear shows and think, ‘I am going to get me one of those shirts, suits or Hermes emerald green suede henley tees.’ However, when a friend showed me ACNE’s postcard sweaters from the Fall 2011 collection, I decided that in this case, the forbidden fruit must be tasted.

Grazia Once again on the topic of celebrity endorsements, my main man Pete Wentz and his wife Ashlee Simpson were in Sydney last week for the Australian MTV music awards. According to Grazia, Ash needed a dress for the awards (didn’t her mother ever tell her to come prepared?), so she headed to Bondi boutique Ourmishmash for a last minute dash shop.

Anon asks: Hey Isaac, I’ve been seeing my boyfriend for seven months now and it’s gone really well so far. But recently I’ve been feeling a bit off as I find it hard to read how into the relationship he is. I’ve brought it up a couple of times and he’s listened but said nothing is wrong and it’s all in my head. I feel our relationship is stuck because we can’t get past this properly. How do I get him to have an honest and open talk without him making me feel like I’m nuts and potentially making it worse? Help!
