romance was born

I recently discovered the magical beauty that is Romance Was Born.  The Australian brand was created in 2005 by Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales when they met as fashion design students at East Sydney Technical College.  Their exquisitely crafty design  aesthetic has earned them a strong cult following as well as several International design awards.  The Carpetbagger is more than ready to get in on the fun!

Check out their latest collection for Fall/Winter 2012 below.

The Carpetbagger’s Weekly Case Studies

Kim Kardashian

Almost hate to say it, but Kim’s looking super cute here at the airport!  This inkblot animal print t is totally adorbs and her simple black pants and heels are much less fuss than the fame whore usually struts around in.  If I didn’t know any better, I’d say by the looks of this snapshot, she’s a girl with easy laid back style spiked with some edge.  But I do know better-must just be a fluke!

Brooklyn Decker in Stella McCartney

Yowza!  Does this girl have a body and  know how to dress it!!  I really gotta hand it to Ms. Decker.   If anyone can dress themselves and come out oozing with sex appeal, yet manage to look exceptionally classy at the same time, Brooklyn can do it!  This gown makes the statuesque supermodel look, oh about 10 feet tall.  Thanks to its impecible tailoring and minimalist design, Brooklyn is working it like it was made for her and that ridiculous body!

Emma Stone in Max Mara Coat

Cute and simply chic!  Perfect for a NY afternoon!  Nicely done, as usual Emma Stone.
