Olé! Olé! Oh Spain, forever you will have my heart! After dreaming about the frills and spills of this incredibly glamorous culture to then actually visiting it last year – all my dreams and more came true. The music, the dance!
Here at The moon and The Mirror, Spain will always inspire us, so, let us share the love with you and be inspired together! Olé!
It was our incredible pleasure to work with Adelaide’s premier Flamenco Dancer, Areti Boyaci in collaboration for our Flamenco Fusion Shoot. How divine is she?! Oh!

WATCH: The Premiere of Documentary: Paco de Lucîa: The Journey at The Adelaide Guitar Festival
The Adelaide Guitar Festival has kicked off and I am incredibly excited to get into it with this premiere doumentary: Paco De Lucia: The Journey. Always, we must be searching for inspiration, for beauty – for things that move and inspire us. We need only look to our fellow humans creating in this world to do this. Olé!!
I always covet the style of Spain. From the flamboyant embroidered fabrics, to the dramatic mantilla, to the larger than life sombrero – they all have a special place in my wardrobe. One of my favourite style references for Spain is the film Blancanieves. It is the story of Snow White, set on a backdrop of Sevillia in perfect film noir style. This is the kind of film I watch over and over again.
A statement piece is something that truly makes me feel fabulous. This jacket in particular was one of those finds where I almost fainted in pleasure – its just so intricate! Oh! I wear this kind of elaborate clothing because it is truly transportive. I slip it on and I feel I have become El Maestro…
Flamenco, Flamenco, Flamenco! Obviously, I cannot get enough! Take my word on this: Flamenco will make your heart soar and your eyes glisten. Its just so emotive, it becomes all enveloping when you see it live.
