Sorella Photoshoot 2015: Behind the Scenes

Our regular sorellas will note lots of beautiful new images to our store recently. And this is because we ran photoshoot recently in Sydney!... sorella lounge robe in pink blush (maternity & womens collection) sorella watson tee (mens collection)   The shoot day and seeing the final results has got to be one of the best parts of working in fashion for me. Yep, it's absolutely also really stressful and you have to be incredibly organised right down to the last little detail like an emergency needle and thread, but I ADORE working with such talented creatives (the models, artists, photographer & support crew), and I also love seeing new styles finally come to life - and old favourites re-styled. There's also time for a bit of silly fun.... We shot...

The thing we all have to do in life now and then (that makes me want to hide in a cardboard box with a bottle of wine, rock back and forth and pretend it isn’t happening)

So I’m facing something this fortnight that is in my top 5 of life’s most painful must-dos.  Others seem to manage it quite well. Some even live to tell the tale while facing it in a foreign country while 9 months pregnant and a toddler in tow. But no, not me. I’m a weakling. This thing takes so much thought, effort, and quite often – pain. It can rattle me to my core of vulnerability. I lie awake at night with questions: “How am I going to make this work? How the bloody hell am I going to get though this?” In the past when a friend informs me that they are facing this life change, I cringe. My stomach drops. I want to back away…

sneaky-peek behind the scenes! 2013 sorella & me photoshoot

It’s so exciting for us to be so close to launching a few new pieces to our much-loved sorella & me collection. After the success of the new men’s collection, we are sure you will love these new women’s and maternity pieces just as much! To keep you salivating until they launch later this month, we’ve put together a little behind the scenes video of the shoot which we held on the Sunshine Coast. You might spot a few of these new pieces! A big thanks to the very talented Harry Mark for putting the video together for us!

The girl has a voice

It’s not every day you get to say one of your besties is a rock star – even if in response to that title, this friend would say that’s the most ridiculous thing she has ever heard and end up in a fit of laughter. The laugh is infectious. As is the voice. I’m sitting here in the sorella & me office listening to her EP (which our neighbours also get to hear on repeat most days), and I think if anyone has an EP on iTunes, I have paid good-hard-earned money for it, and I really really love it… then said person meets the definition of Rockstar in my book. Meet Livi Robins. Friends since we were 18, Livi and I lived together in…

I quite fancy the idea of being Nigella Lawson’s sister!

It was my birthday yesterday, and my fiancé had no chance of winning the gift giving competition when my friend handed me a copy of Nigella Lawson’s new cookbook signed by the Queen of Cookery herself. The message was as sweet as I expect her Nutella chocolate cheesecake will be (page 175). There has been alot of discussion about the inevitable demise of physical books from our lives. Page-turning is a dying pastime and instead, more and more of us are finding ourselves giving up and joining the masses in tablet reading.  Even my future mother-in-law has recently acquired an iPad – and this paper-page turning aficionado has confessed that she loves it. It will only be a matter of time before we see a…

OMG you have been such a jerk today!

Sometimes my fiancé J1 and I can have a good-old fashion barney. Not often, but let’s say more regular than a solar eclipse. I know – so crazy right? Here you were thinking I was one of those people with such a level of high emotional intelligence and a perfect relationship meaning I never have disagreements with my partner (I will assume you are either new to our blog and/or haven’t read this post, or this post, or this post )…. With us both being a little ‘strong-willed’ in our approach to life, sure makes for some interesting conversations now and then. Sometimes these conversations end up making me not want to talk to him for a certain period of time. Basically for as long as…

Gettin’ bloggie with it!

sorella & me at the ProBlogger Training Event 2012

If you’ve kept an eye on the sorella & me facebook page over the last few days you would have seen that Anna and I were fortunate to spend two days at the ProBlogger Training Event in Melbourne – getting our bloggie on!! The event brings 300 bloggers of all levels together to learn and network. Anna and I really enjoy writing the sorella-hood blog and connecting with you all here, sharing our observations on ‘life’, and hopefully providing you a place to have a laugh (at our expense) or learn something new.  We were grateful for the opportunity to find out how do this better by attending the ProBlogger training – it was such a treat to take some time out to listen and…

The joys of being a Mum – Happy Mothers Day!

Kathie and her 3 children

In case you have been sleeping under a rock – It’s Mothers Day on Sunday! So we thought it would be timely to sit down with 5 of our beautiful friends and share what’s special about being a Mum (and what’s on their wish-list this Mothers Day – we hope their partners are taking notes!). CARRIE Hello I’m Carrie – I’m a Literacy Coach, wife, and mum of 2 children – Charli who is 10 and Zeke is 6. We live in Geelong in Victoria. What makes being a mum special?  Just being a mum is special, I feel so blessed! Being a working mum, no matter how hectic my day may have been, coming home to cuddles and my children wanting to share everything…

The Tragically Failed Relationships Mix Tape

One of my girlfriends and I had always said we’d write a book about our combined tragic relationship history (note publishing houses – feel free to contact me). We are confident no one could top our success in failing so much. It’s actually pretty ludicrous we formulated such a lengthy list of pitiful and pathetic scenarios – I’m struggling to work out how we actually got around to any study for uni or were able to uphold emotionally stable states of mind with all the drama that was going on. All we wanted was the perfect guy. Why was that so much to ask? We all know this guy – the one that would rather spend time with you than his friends.  The one that…

Is it me or my daughter you don’t like?

There have been a few changes for my daughter at childcare this year as she has now moved into the Kindy room. It was a time to get to know some new friends, as many of the kids she played with last year have now left for Prep. As the weeks went on I started to hear the same name being repeated – let’s call her… ‘Anne’.  My daughter would come home talking about Anne regularly.  I would ask her “How was your day?” and she would reply with: “Anne did ‘this’, and it was so funny when Anne did ‘that’”. 

Welcome to the sorella-hood!

We are so happy you’re here

Let’s celebrate with 10% off your first order!

And we promise we won’t spam you...

There’s too much Netflix we need to catch up on
