Leave behind your preconceived ideas about Pole Dancing and let Chicfinds tell you that getting fit can be FUN! We have discovered the best craze to come in fitness. Its got a little bit of yoga, a little bit of pilates, jazz, contemporary dance with a pole. Rather than having to take every leap, bend and crunch on your own, you have a pole to support you and a room full of great girls all having a good time. It feels like your in a dance studio rather than a florescent lit gym with competitive and intimating faces all around.
Its so much fun you don’t notice the pain of the push ups or the crunch and you feel really motivated to get the best results.
The other element of Pole that makes it such a great sport is that its completely Girly. You can get gilizy, glamorous or go sporty. Even if there is some boys in the odd class its like a girl club and you can be a girl one hundred percent.
Getting fit feels sexy and fun instead of a chore or another to do on your to do list. A great time out, a date with yourself and other chicks swinging their hips. If you want a bit of yoga, pilates and dance class with great results give Pole a go. Visit http://sydneypole.com/ or a studio in your area.

Fashion is a never ending revolving cycle, it goes forward, backwards and makes full circles and fundamentally it is always varied! Thank goodness as it would get very boring if everything suited everyone. You take from fashion what you like and what inspires you and if it takes you on a journey, good, its doing its job. One of the most beautiful aspects of fashion is photography and the art of translating garments and creating stories. Here are a few images from Vogue Italia by Mario Sorrenti.
Black and white, lace and lines are all classics to be played with.
There is nothing quite like a groomed hair and make-up to create the look. It takes you back to dress ups when you were a kid and a transformation would transpire and you could be anywhere, anybody in any life but yours!
Thanks Mario for bringing us some of the most beautiful photographs. MiaoX

Maya has been out and about in this beautiful Sydney Spring weather and she’s got the transeasonal look with t-shirt and fur wrap, leggins and our favorite, ugg boots.

http://en.vogue.fr/fashion/fashion-news/articles/the-vogue-fashion-night-out-2012/14116 We love Marion and her chic Parisian style dressing. She manages to have that thrown together look with a t-shirt and shorts but her accessories are classic and sexy. She cant help but remind me of the beautiful Jane Birkin.
Beautiful sexy legs are very in fashion. The sandal is so feminine this season it is barely there but just enough to be a foots best friend. Marion is wearing t-shirt called “Dryclean only” from Bangkok, denim shorts from H&M. Strappy sandals by Barbara Bui and handbag is by Christian Dior. Her sunglases are from a market in Seol.
Visit Shoerazzi for a bit of a guide on the latest Spring/Summer 12 styles. I think it has to be said that you cant get much sexier than a quality strappy sandal. Let me emphasis though that quality is the word here. No point buying the look at under $100. Give this shoe a good part of your budget as it will take you far and you will be able to match it up with all the less expensive looks of Zara, H&M and all the high street fashion brands. shttp://shoerazzi.com/
