Admittedly you could call us more than a little slack, we’ve had the stunning Windfall pieces from Lani for a few months now but just haven’t got around to putting them on the webstore. So you can shop from your couch, bed or toilet for your favourite pieces from this clever lady. Handmade by Ms Williams herself these pieces are available in stirling silver and copper, although if there is something we don’t stock you can find more items over on her website.
Below are a few items available, click image to shop. More items available via our online store here.
Newness on the floor from Vanishing Elephant, Cheap Monday, Handsom and Kahlo. We hope you love the new arrivals as much as we do. You can now simply click the image for more information on the garments x

A collection of images from a shoot we worked on a little while back with Studio Jane, Andrew Gough Photography and Lauren De Innocentis as stylist.
First drop of Winter 2013 has arrived from Handsom. Now we just need some cool weather so we can get into them! A forest green speckled cotton sweat for the lads, a contrast knit which we think we might be thieving form the boys for ourselves, and chambray long sleeve shirt and an awesome update on the traditional skivvy for the gals. Nice clothes alright x
After a rather hectic start to the days festivities involving power tools and a little bit of posing, we finally had our lemonade stand on the road. Phew! It was hot hot hot (cannot labour that point enough) out there and we are so grateful to our pals who pitched in to help us out manning the stand, working on the floor oh and looking beautiful at the same time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, enjoyed a lemonade on us and joined up to our mailing list or Facebook. We hope to stay in touch as we develop our online store. Keep an eye on your inbox as we shoot a special thank you your way.
Check out a few snaps we managed to grab. Although we don’t have any photographic evidence from the dance floor at Acqua E Vino, some photos are best not sharing. As usual we didn’t get to see as much as the festival as we would of liked but we still managed to have a magic day…the hangover on Sunday however was not quite as magic as you might imagine.
Well done to the amazing Yarraville Festival organisers and council involved, especially Martin. All the last minute worries, and months planning were well worth the effort. Another festival well done x
Yesterday saw the extended LO family feeling a little worse for wear after the Yarraville Festival.
We had such a blast and will be posting photos of the festival shortly. But in the mean time check out this babe. Juliet is wearing the latest and greatest from Kahlo, the Retrospect dress. We love this one, with the release of their third season the girls have refined the little black (leather) dress with a slimmer cut and stunning quilting around the neckline, a super soft suede through the body and leather trim around the legs. This dress doesn’t fail to impress. We styled the look with our favourite jewels from Windfall Jewellery (a new drop arrived in store on Saturday – YAY!) and the gorgeous skull and cross chain from Rose Jewellery. Of course the look couldn’t be complete without some oversized sunnies from Wildfox. Hello baby!
The webstore has just been updated with new arrivals from Friday, a delivery of Vanishing Elephant mens and womenswear. Still have some more items to add to the store for your shopping pleasure but they shouldn’t be too far away.

We hope you and yours have enjoyed a bloody awesome Summer break, we adore the warmer weather and all that comes with this time of year. From music festivals with amazing tunes, making new friends, time spent in parks, backyards and poolside soaking up the relaxed atmosphere with a beverage or two.

Check out a few pictures from our Summer Lovin x

P.S if we could work out how to load a video on here it would be here..in the interim you will have to follow the link. Peace x

It could be said that we are queens of procrastination, Melissa from Flourished and Sunkissed recently mentioned how much you can get done when you should be studying or doing some other task that you dont’t want to do. We agree! For example right now O should be writing an essay due yesterday, but instead study is replaced by trawling the internet and blogging (eeeep!).
Today’s inspiration for procrastination is officially Pinterest…gosh you can lose yourself on there! But, the wonderful upside is the ideas you stumble across. Inspired by a post we have found on Oh Happy Day we’re going to throw an Outdoor Movie Night. We can’t wait for the perfect balmy summer’s night to give this one a go.
We will post some of our own photos from our soiree after the event, in the meantime we hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Oh Happy Day below x
Perhaps we’ve been under a rock but this season we’ve met, well to be fair that’s a fairly generous use of the word met, perhaps stalked, admired and pined across the interweb might be more to the point. Anywho we’ve stumbled across the very lovely Miroslava (Mira) Duma, a former editor of Harper’s Bazaar, Russia. Her style popped up on our radar whilst trawling the international fashion weeks photos. Plenty of colour and style in her delicious wardrobe.
We are suitably excited about the arrival of the SICK 6 (not 5!) panel caps from Sunday Somewhere….along with some rad new shades.
Check out Lisa sporting the new gear, and jump over to the website to see each of the items with more detail.
Spring brings with it a multitude of fun colours and prints this year at LO. We have beautiful floral patterns from Rittenhouse, fun prints from Handsom and August Street and the aztex inspired prints from Secret South. Way to brighten up the shop! It’s like a burst of colour has showered down on the racks. Chhhheck it out.
Check out Melissa from Flourished and Sunkissed sporting her Kahlo Full Tank purchased from our Lo & Behold online store – what a cute way to work the look for the warmer months. Can’t wait for a little more sunshine down in here in Melbourne town so we can get some skin out too x
You know those clever people that make cool things that you just love and think why oh why wasn’t I that clever? That’s how we feel when we see Studio Jane and Andrew Gough Photography collaborate. They put together this fun imagery for our upcoming partay. Look at those kitties getting in the party spirit, just makes you want to throw on a hat and get into it too. So why don’t you come and play with us, we’re throwing a party on Friday 12th October, all are welcome. BYO party attitude and a smile.
We want you to come, so why not tell us that you are? Click over here to our Facebook and let us know you’ll be there x
Excitement in store today as a little delivery of Kahlo arrives. The perforated leather is so awesome, we tried to capture the detail in the close up shot. We’re totally in love. The Full Tank is a gorgeous grey marle, perfect paired back with the Haughty Shorts or Lynch Leather skirt. Ahhh we wish we could wear them all at once. Pop into our Yarraville boutique or jump online.
If you’re not sure how to rock the white trend this season, check out the lovely Ashka blog where the Kahlo Deity dress has been styled and shot by Xiaohan Shen with Sara from Harper and Harley. We still have a few sizes left of this little number over here.
So you live in Melbourne and want it right now, like right-right now? Yeah we have same day delivery for all you eager beavers with little time to shop. We can have your coveted item out to you in 3 hours (and sometimes less!) Fabulous! Want it Now and Lo & Behold – for your same day delivery delights!
Sometimes you work with a label that makes your job as a buyer so much fun, Sunday Somewhere is one of them. The only problem is that the sunnies are impossible to choose between! Sunday have got it covered – the styles are completely rad, accompanying imagery stunning (oh and the guys are an absolute pleasure to deal with…the list goes on!). Last week Helen and Dave stopped by the store to show us the upcoming collection, we won’t lie LO probably had it’s first fight deciding over who has dibs on what styles. We think you’re going to be elbowing your bestie out of the way to get your hands on the new stock.
Below are some beautiful images from the collection, new styles dropping later this month. x
Black and white Tumblr love.
When LO first spied this collection we swooned over the delicious leather (pardon the pun). If you, like us have been holding your breath in anticipation of its arrival, you can now take a deep breath in. The first drop from ‘A Crowded House’ is here. After seeing this collection splashed across the Sydney fashion week reviews as one of the highlights of the festival, we have been deservedly salivating – hello luxe Australian design! We spotted Rachelle wearing the Deity dress earlier this year, click here for a flash back to their show.
So what has arrived? The Mythical Cape in a subtle mushroom, the simplicity and quality of this little number is second to none. We love the leather and organza Doe-eyed tank, it’s impossible not to notice the perfect finish in each of these items. And of course the much-coveted Deity dress in organic cotton, effortless yet elegant and the-oh-so chic Lynch leather skirt.
Kahlo has delivered another stunning collection with exacting detailing, and beautiful fabrics. But you don’t need us to tell you about it, come in and have a look.We’re proud to be stocking a strong up and coming Australian made label, the future is bright for Fay and Rachelle. Check out lovely Liv below in the new arrivals x
Recently we asked Bri Cheeseman and Andrew Prince to tell us a little more about their label. Kindly, they obliged and told us about how they found themselves creating the beautiful garments of Secret South, formerly Secret Squirrel.
LO Howdy Bri & Andrew. How are you both?
We’re good! It’s cold in Sydney today and in the studio as well – lots of couriers arriving with fabrics and everyone keeps leaving the doors open! Looking forward to the arrival of spring, the humidity and the heavy scent of jasmine.
LO Can you tell us a little about what you do?
We make simple, beautiful, modern clothing women love to wear. We place a big emphasis on print, colour and quiet details to make pieces that are wardrobe essentials.
LO How did you two get started?
We started at the markets. We made and printed everything ourselves to begin with and the label grew organically from there.
LO What’s the most interesting thing about your work?
We love collaborating with other creatives and find it’s the most interesting part of running the label. Whether it be on textiles, photo shoots or campaign films, that process of collaboration is very rewarding.
LO Who or what inspires your work?
Music is probably our main source of inspiration, we are always listening to new and classic artists and whole collections can be dreamed up just from listening to an album. We’ve just discovered Rdio and an instrumental release of The Herbaliser.
LO How old were you when you decided to take this path?
26 (Bri) and 31 (Andrew)
LO What is/are your favourite achievement(s) so far in your career?
There’s too many to choose! We like to celebrate all the achievements we’ve made along the way, both huge ones and also tiny little ones only we would notice. Probably the best so far has been getting to the point where the label is our full time occupation.
LO What do you dream about?
I dream about luxurious tropical holidays, lying on beaches and Andrew dreams about roughing it camping. Sometimes the two don’t match up but we always make sure we get a bit of both.
LO What other labels do you admire?
I admire anyone who has the passion, creativity and determination to start their own label. Hats off to all of us!
LO We hear there’s a big change in store for the label. Can you tell us about the new direction?
This season we’ve changed our name to Secret South. It’s been in the pipeline for a while now behind the scenes but we felt this season was the perfect time to do it. The label has really evolved over the years to be all about simple, modern, covetable pieces that are all about print and quality and for us Secret South really encapsulates this.
LO What inspired the change?
Every girl has wanted to change her name at some point in her life, right? While we loved the cute nostalgia of our old name, Secret South feels fresh and modern and a little more grown up. It captures the essence of what the label has become over the years.
LO We love the new direction. A little more sophisticated, and the prints are so eye catching. Thanks for your time & keep up the great work!
LO‘s picks from the first collection from Secret South:
This season features the aztec influenced kilim print exclusive to Secret South. We’ve chosen a beautiful shirt dress with button through detail and long tail back. We can see this working perfectly from day to night. The orange kilim print has returned in a familiar but slightly edited shape. For those who have loved the silk dresses from last season you’ll find this number is slightly longer with a stunning keyhole back (or as L would say – A surprise back!) Each of the prints has also been worked across a series of scarves and purses which look fantastic teamed back with a neutral outfit for the coming Spring. We hope you like as much as we do xx
All Secret South items are available for pre order via the website or by phoning the store.
Our picks from the Spring Vanishing Elephant Drop don’t disappoint – The Scott floral shirt has beautiful rose embroidering, a subtle finish to a classic shirt. The Eisenhower shirt is easy and relaxed, layer up in the cooler months and dress down with shorts as the sun begins to sparkle. And lastly what could epitomise the VE style more than the Baez knocked back relaxed blazer – we love it, don’t you?

A few weeks back we had a visit from a lovely Westbourne Grammar School mother, Emma to see if we would like to participate in the their Mother’s Day Luncheon. The lunch was a fashion fundraiser supported by local west side shops. Of course we were more than happy to be involved and the models strutted their stuff in the Handsom Susie Buckle Coat, Secret Squirel Maximal Top, Snapshot Skirt & Rittenhouse Babysteps Blouse. Here are some of the snaps of the mums working it!
Last night saw us take another trip to the picturesque Forum (twice in 7 days – Temper Trap last week were fantastico) to listen to the hauntingly beautiful music of Matt Corby. Unfortunately being a bit of a camera novice we had to check our camera – doh! So no photos of Matt…le sigh! But we did take some snaps of our post concert shenanigans around the corner in Hosier Lane. And what should we stumble upon than the artwork of Lucas Grogan, the Melbourne artist who features on the Baby Steps shirt now in stock. Admittedly there may have been a touch too much alcohol consumed on a school night but boy did we have fun. Hope you enjoy our happy snaps!

Trawling etsy makes for cruisy Sunday fun. Today’s favourite Etsy Shops are…
Uptightso Penelope Kokinelis creates patterns of your wildest rainbow dreams and puts them on fun lycra leggings. Suitably priced for the budget friendly shopper. The digital prints are designed and hand made in Aus – hoorah!
Leninka Aptly titled ‘hand knit and crochet designs by Lena Maikon’. This is a shop full of funny crochet accessories, knitted home wears, and a sexy décolletage dress that is oh so tempting. The hipster backpack made us giggle and the innocent lamb made us coo.
Yummi Shop Felt Balls and party supplies, no idea what we would use these felt balls for but they are so cute! Pretty colours…rugs…felt ball garlands and more!
Meet Lauren De Innocentis, one very talented little miss and wunder stylist. We asked her a few questions about what she does and how it started. Read on!
So Lauren, what is it that do you do?
Ha, well it depends on the day really. Some days I play designer, some days stylist, other days costume totty and on alternative Wednesdays I sing in a Kiss cover band. Ha, it would be awesome if that was true. I am also creative director at new fashion label Heroine. Basically my little world revolves around the things we wear and the things we dream to wear.
How did you get started?
A long long time ago, as a wee thing I began crafting my own designs, thanks to the teachings of my multi skilled and talented ma (she always did a smashing job at making me some super fashionable clothes and ballet costumes). It developed into designing my own costumes for school performances and then designing for amateur theatre productions. I studied fashion design after school, naughtily I didn’t finish the course (possibly something that I regret to this day, ‘stay in your course kids’) to skip the country instead. Whilst serving cocktails one evening in Scotland, I happened to befriend two designers who liked me enough (they were probably a little tipsy) to let me do some work experience with them, which eventually lead to my first official/paid job in the industry, as their design assistant. The best advice I can give someone if they want to get a job in a creative field is do work experience. I gave up my Friday’s for six weeks to work in the costume department on my very first film set, and two months later I got my first paid film job. That is basically how it has continued to play out for me over time, I have been an exceptionally lucky girl.
What’s the most interesting thing about your work?
With styling, I am never in the same place for too long, a new day, a new location. In film, I get to experience and travel to some incredible places. I once spent a month in the flinders rangers, which was incredibly beautiful and fun (i drove around in a huge proper off road four wheel drive, with roo bar and everything, it was rad). More recently I spent time 400 metres underground, ha, I’m not joking.
Who inspires your work?
Gosh, I think inspiration comes in many forms and from many places. I work with some extremely talented, creative people, they most definitely inspire me. People on the street inspire me. The couture houses in Paris. Influential and imaginative creatives like Grace Coddington or Colleen Atwood. Decade’s long gone, movements and shifts in culture, iconic figures, art, travel, film… the list is endless.
How old were you when you decided to take this path?
Well… not that long ago I found a mission statement written by a very little me, it went something like this…
I want to be a fashion designer and I want to make lots and lots of money to send food and water to all the poor kids in africa. True story. It’s still a work in progress. So my answer is young.
What are some highlights of your career?
There have been some crazy days and some brilliant days. Just recently I worked on a music video. It was such a fun job and is going to be awesome when it’s complete. Filled a car with over 30,000 Creme Eggs on a 40 degree day. I worked on the film Snowtown. And once a photo of my tom ford at gucci inspired, plunging neckline, goth/wrap dress (it was 2001, forgive me) featured in an article in the Sunday Mail, ha.
I have started a little design project about sustainable fashion. Which is inspired by the waste produced from disposable fashion and garment making. Also working on a shoot for L&B.
What do you dream about?
Turkeys. They are creepy, right?
Who are your favourite designers?
Too many to choose from… I’ll start with global loves… Frida Gianni, the Gucci goddess, she is amazing. Karen Walker, effortless, quirky, cool. Unkle Karl at Chanel, adore. Aussie favourites. Dion Lee, the nutters at Romance is Born and smaller labels like Khalo and Secret Squirrel, stocked at Lo & Behold.
What is my favorite item at Lo & Behold?
Again too many to choose from… On my wish list… Khalo’s cosy, soft Garfield Dress. Handsom’s Geo Print Shirt. Secret Squirrel’s Maximal Top. Rittenhouse Tartan Bat Wing Coat.
How can people see your work or get in touch with you?
My website will be up and running shortly but until then you can contact me for a chat or to discuss a project via email at email@example.com. Alternatively you can find me on most social media websites near you (facespace, twitter, pinterest, instagram) and or my blog laurentheinnocent.tumblr.com.
Well Lauren, we love your work. Thanks for playing with us.
Thanks for the chat Lo & Behold. Peace xx
Is it just us or have you noticed Superheroes popping up everywhere?
The friendly super humans appeared in our world recently with an introduction from a special 4 year old, Tex. This little guy is OBSESSED with superheroes, he dresses like one, acts like one and knows his Marvel Encyclopedia off by heart.
But it isn’t just 4 year olds who are taken by superheroes of late, Romance Was Born opened Fashion Week this year with a Marvel Comics-inspired collection. For Team Lo&B this was the highlight of Sydney Fashion week. Models walked with flame red hair and comic book faces of blue eyeshadow and black accentuated brows on a backdrop of a comic scene.
Popular nail laquer company O.P.I recently launched the Spiderman collection, inspired by the movie The Amazing Spiderman which is scheduled for release later this year. The collection features names such as My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Call Me Gwen-Ever & Your Web Or Mine. Fun! The colours in the collection are truly wild.
The Avengers movie was released recently in Australia, this is one movie we are looking forward to kicking back and enjoying. The who’s who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow using their powers to save the world from disaster – PHWOAR!
What could be next in the Superhero scene, we hope to see some lady heroes taking the stage xx
This week we stumbled upon this very awesome blog by Byron Spencer, a photographic journal of his work and other cool musings.
From epic to candid, his images are worth a look. Meander over and take a peek. We couldn’t take our eyes off Dylan in Vanishing Elephant (hello handsome!) and the lovely Montana from Australia’s Next Top Model sporting a smoking hot vintage Versace swimsuit. We hope you enjoy x
How are you going to say thank you to your Mum for all the wonderful things she’s done for you over a lifetime? Sometimes it seems impossible to show the amount of gratitude and other times she makes it impossible for you to want to ; ). On the 13th of May it’s our day to say thanks, I love you & treat our mum’s with a little extravagance. We have a few ideas…but we’re open to suggestions. Here are our best picks for spoiling our mums:
Breakfast in bed – nothing goes down like a homemade breakfast, but if you can’t break into her house on Mother’s Day morning without raising a call to the police, why not take her somewhere special. We love local breaky favourites Cornershop in Yarraville, Crowded House in Williamstown & The Duchess in Spotswood
What better way to jazz up a bunch of flowers than picking up something special from Say it with Succulents- we will admit that we have a mild obsession with succulents and they might not be for everyone, but come on what’s not to love about these luscious green delights?
High tea at the Windsor - an old favourite. From the ornate tea sets to the lavish sweets spread, you and your mother darling can share a stylish afternoon tea fit for a Queen.
Afternoon punch at Madam Brussels - if the weather is kind the Madam’s outdoor balcony is a resplendent location full of kitsch decor and pleasant staff. And if the decor isn’t enough the cocktail menu is overwhelmingly satiating. From Hot Toddies to hot buttered rum there is sure to be something to tickle your mum’s good taste (they even have hot water bottles over the cooler months!).
We have a few little gifts for your perfect mum in store and online.
Imm Living Ceramics
Super Fine Necklace $55
Plain & Simple
Eggy Soaps (triple milled soaps) $30
Sure they may have been conjured up in the mud by trench dwelling diggers but that doesn’t mean that your inner fashionista can’t enjoy an Anzac biscuit with a cuppa this Anzac day. And what better way to pass the rainy public holiday than getting your hands dirty in the kitchen, whether you’re hung over from a big Anzac eve partay, or watching the Anzac AFL clash it would be un Australian to be without a biscuit on this fine holiday.
Try our recipe for these tasty morsels below x

You may or may not be aware of the terrarium craze sweeping the gardening world, but if you’ve spent anywhere between a minute and an hour on Pinterest you will have undoubtedly been exposed to these little glasshouse gems.
There is something about terrariums that evokes childhood memories of ships in glass jars and magical fairy worlds…sure maybe we’re getting a little lost in a fantasy world.
So we’re going to jump on board the craze and try our hand at building a mossy paradise or mini succulent garden. Stay tuned to see how they turn out or not turn out as it may be.
God damn we LOVE Nadine von Cohen, whether it’s her blogging for The Vine online or FUCKYEAH tweeting you’re guaranteed some serious lolz.
Recently she wrote a post on Fashion’s most stylish siblings, who hasn’t coveted the Olsen’s since Full House? But they weren’t the only siblings to feature – check out her post to see a plethora of trend makers over here.
And our favs from her favs (we know original huh?)
Mulleavy sisters – thank you for Rodarte!
Emma and Alex Watson – style and cute accents
And of course Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen always had a place on this list but new to our radar is younger sister Elizabeth Olsen.
Easy listening as we recover from the sugar high that is Easter.
From the 2004 album, White People here is I’ve Been Thinking featuring Cat Power.
Are you over tight or skinny jeans? Fear not! A new trend in pants is here and we are loving this 70′s inspired style at Lo & Behold. Wide leg pants have arrived, we adore how they’re being rocked across all shapes and sizes. Sometimes a wide leg is not the easiest of styles to pull off especially if you’re on the shorter side, but we have some wearable tips to help you love this style as much as we do.
A bit of height will go a long way. We find a chunky heel or wedge works best. Only wear with flats if you’re loaded with height.
Get the length right. After purchasing take them to your tailor to ensure they sit just right, remember to consider the shoes you plan on wearing them with when you measure up with the tailor.
Think about your proportions. If you have a long torso and short legs then go for a high waist as this will make your legs look longer. Short torso and short legs? Keep things equal with a low waist and keep your top fitted or tucked in.
Wear a great belt. This will cinch in your waist especially if you’re wearing a loose fitting top.
Wide leg styles to try out at Lo & Behold include the Cheap Monday Power Jean in navy cord $90. Hello ladies this is a flattering pant, if you dare.
Handsom Susie Cropped Wide Leg pants in navy wool $144.95
Rittenhouse Wide Leg Pants in black crepe $380
Call us crazy but we are loving the first signs of cool weather arriving on our doorsteps.
With Autumn taking over from the sultry hot days of February we are embracing the chill with open arms. Our pleasure in the temperature dropping may have something to do with the kick arse coats we will be sporting this Winter. Already arrived in store is the beautiful Woodcut Coat by Secret Squirrel, a coat for the ages. Brushed wool in murky shade of green, the craftsmanship of this piece is second to none. Soon to arrive in store is the Rittenhouse Tartan Batwing Coat, something of a standout in the Autumn Winter range. The winged sleeves, deep snug pockets and tartan detailing make this statement coat a covetable winter fav. Lastly for the ladies is the Susie Buckle coat by Handsom. Handsom are renowned for their wearable staples and this coat fulfils every inch of their reputation. Keep an eye out for this little cape shaped coat that can be styled with the collar up or down.
Secret Squirrel Woodcut Coat $550, shop online here.
Rittenhouse Tartan Batwing Short Coat $660, shop online here.
Handsom Susie Buckle Coat $275, shop online here.
