A collection of the perfect layering piece for Winter.
Sophie Moran: 2013 Winter Collection
The mid-year sales are about to kick off and since you’ll be spending money to add more buys to your wardrobe, why not warm up this Winter with some new knits?
A good quality knit is pretty hard to come by these days, but I think this Winter collection by Sophie Moran is worth investing in.
These pieces are cute and cosy, as they’re made from the highest quality fabrics of cashmere, angora and merino wool.
A talented (industrial) designer with a clean, simple yet elegant style.

An Interview with Dani Thai
This is a special edition of the ‘After Dark Adventures’ series. A few months back, The 5 to 9 Life was approached to do a fashion feature on the blog, but to add more depth to the photo shoot, I wanted to incorporate an interview aswell, so I decided to recruit the likes of DOSH Designer, Dani Thai.
Get to know Dani as we spoke to her about three key topics: work, weekend and working out.

Starring Elijah Wood
Mr Porter: Paper Plane
Part of a short film campaign by Mr. Porter, Elijah Wood returns to the small screen in ‘Paper Plane’ as a frustrated employee considering his position in the workplace.
Although this short film is a few months old, it is one that I had to share, especially if you’re a fan of this year’s Academy Award Winner for Best Animated Short Film, ‘Paperman’.

Nike: Late Winter 2013

Check out pieces from three categories: Training, Sportswear and Running.
Exploring natural motion through the new FREE
Nike: FREE Your Run
The Nike Free has become quite the popular shoe for everyday use and it is also hard to find a better match, if you live an active lifestyle.
In fact, Nike asks that you choose a number. A lower number means a lower, more flexible midsole – and a more barefoot-like feel.
The Roshe Run has been given a subtle make-over this year
Nike: Roshe Run
The new Nike Roshe Run are set to be released in stores tomorrow Australia-wide and we’ve got an exclusive look before they hit the stores!
The ROSHERUN – for both men’s and women’s – features a unique combination of simple lines and a clean aesthetic to produce a great lifestyle and fashion-forward sneaker.
The actual design of the shoes are pretty basic. The rounded shape is designed to hug the foot for athletic use and the white sole ensures these shoes won’t mark up gym floors during your favorite aerobics class.

Known best for their handcrafted wooden frames, Shwood is exploring new natural territories this season with the debut of the Stone Collection.
The materials used to create these shades harmoniously combine to achieve an aesthetic balance between rugged and refined, so if you’re as impressed with these as I am, you better hurry because numbers are limited.
