Do the words cover-up conjure up horrible images of tie-dye sarongs and mumsy kaftans edged with questionable Indian embroidery? Banish those nasty connotations by updating your over-cossie reference point with these fab buys. Think outside the square when it comes to your beach outerwear with a laid-back oversized tee, or don a barely-buttoned up shirt dress for easy-breezy appeal. Light weight cotton voile makes florals sand-appropriate whilst billowy peasant blouses will add gypset style to any (printed) bikini. Take a gander and update your beach wardrobe in a snap with our Fast Five online edit.
What’s a celebrity these days without a great smartphone? With all the sharing and tweeting of behind-the-scenes photos and insider news, celebrities can’t keep their fans updated about the latest events and parties unless they’ve got a handset that can do it all.
This is where the HTC Rhyme comes into the picture. Even if you haven’t quite joined the ranks of the A-list yet, you can feel like you’ve got it all thanks to a smartphone that was designed with you in mind. The HTC Rhyme, like most of us, is a multitasker — it has all the essential features needed to stay in touch and take photos, plus it also comes with a docking station that transforms your phone into an alarm clock and music centre. Find out about the HTC Rhyme’s cool accessories after the jump.
We’re all about looking good whilst going about our business. From doing the after-work-to-drinks dash, to organising a much-needed shop-a-thon with the girls, we like to stay in touch — in style. It can be hard to choose between fashion and function at times, but the HTC Rhyme handset you don’t have to.
Combining all the bits you need to keep your life (fashionably) on track, this palm-sized PA is so much more than a just a phone. Combining a killer camera, integrated ‘friend-stream’ (so you can keep track of who’s where, and when), nifty docking station that transforms the phone into a music centre and alarm clock, and an impossible-to-tangle set of headphones — the HTC Rhyme is all about streamlining your life.
Ever missed a call whilst hunting for your phone in the bottom of your (It) bag? Never again! The Rhyme’s petite handbag charm notifies you when you’ve got a call or text, and makes it a cinch to retrieve in a hurry. Makes you wonder why they didn’t think of that before?
Looking good this party season is all about prep work. From micro-managing your manicure appointments to ensuring your spray tans are always booked two days ahead of a big event, it’s all about figuring out where you’re meant to be when.
Enter the HTC Rhyme. Your new, ever-so-stylish lifesaver. A phone that doubles as a personal organiser and camera (very handy for checking to see what your foundation looks like on film), it’s been designed solely with you in mind.
With a docking station that not only charges, but also transforms your phone into an alarm clock (handy after a vino or three) and music centre included free of charge, it also comes complete with headphones that are virtually impossible to tangle — because, let’s face it, who has the time to detangle anything other than their tresses — and a light-up charm to notify you of incoming calls or texts so you don’t miss that all-important call, it’s both pretty and practical.
Exclusively available at Optus.

Rag & Bone clearly has a thing for Victoria's Secret Angels (as does the rest of the world), most recently hitting up blonde bombshell Candice Swanepoel to take part in their DIY project. Miranda Kerr (with the help of hubby Orlando) has submitted her au naturel shots for the US label, as have Edita Vilkeviciute, Lily Aldridge and Karoline Kurkova. The less-is-more styling and happy-snap approach works a treat when you're talking about the world's sexiest model frolicking around in skin tight denim, usually at the beach, sometimes half naked, always with that supermodel glow (sans makeup). Take a look at ten of our fave shots from Candice, sure to inspire a swag of Summer days spent in jeans + tees.
Aussies know how to do swimwear. With our obsession with the beach, and a climate that requires you to spend at least three months a year in a cossie it's no wonder, really. One of our fave swim labels, Seventh Wonderland, will be on top of our cossie-shopping destinations — having opened a pop-up store in Sydney's Darlinghurst this week. Known for their sexy-but-still-sophisticated cut-out styles, unique prints and quality fabrications, Seventh Wonderland's killer Summer '11/'12 collection will be available for sale in its entirety in this retail first for the home-grown label. We got an exclusive look at lush moodboard which inspired the 'Serafina' collection — makes you want to take a dip, non? Take a peek at some of the fun that was had in-store at the launch party (warning: bikini babes & paper mâché watermelons abound).
7th Wonderland's pop-up store is located in the The Grand Social store, 214 Crown Street, Darlinghurst, NSW. (02) 9331 0996.
Why wear one trend when you can wear two? Some of this season's most sizzling swimming costumes are doubling your money by combining new-school colour-blocking with old school silhouettes.

From playful polkadots from camilla and marc to sexy scuba styles from Lisa Maree Fernandez, we found ten killer cossies to add to cart.
