What I Wore: White on White

5th April, 2017

I’ve always been a fan of a head-to-toe white ensemble – it’s chic and elegant and really makes quite an impactful style statement. I don’t often wear suits but I couldn’t resist this ensemble. Double breasted jackets have experienced a resurgence of late but in a more modern incarnation – the boxy cuts are gone and in its place is a more streamlined silhouette which makes for a more flattering fit. I love that this jacket is also really versatile and can work easily with the rest of my wardrobe whether thrown over a dress or teamed with jeans. If there’s one thing that goes beautifully with a crisp white outfit it’s gold accessories. In this instance I’ve opted for gilded statement earrings to complement my look. With the addition of a neutral oversized clutch and simple black heels I’m ready to conquer the day ahead.

What I Wore: Green Day

24th February, 2017

Olive green is such a gorgeous colour that I think I definitely need to incorporate into my wardrobe a bit more, I don’t wear it nearly enough It’s certainly one of the things that drew me to this Rebecca Vallance dress.. I also love the military inspired style as it can still look quite dressy but with a change of footwear it can easily be taken down a notch and become a more casual look. In this instance I wanted the outfit to look quite polished so I teamed the dress with my black Alaia heels and my Gucci Dionysus bag (find similar here) to keep my accessories quite neutral but with the finishing touches such as the applique on my bag it keeps the look from looking too pedestrian. My Dita cat-eye sunglasses inject a little attitude to an otherwise quite streamlined look.

What I Wore: Vacheron Constantin

8th November, 2016

vacheronconstantin-ghostii-hi-191016-109It’s the little details that really cement a look for me and this top and skirt combination from Dion Lee’s current collection had all the unique design elements I’ve come to expect from one of my favourite designers. I loved the the laser cut trim on the skirt and the subtle split which managed to turn a simple black pencil skirt and elevate it into a great look for the evening. The silk chiffon/neoprene combination of the top was a great mix of textures and with the sprinkling of Swarovski crystals it made it the ideal piece for an event that required dressier attire. The Alaia heels have proven to be a great investment piece. I’ve worn them with multiple looks, for various occasions and they have been the perfect shoe – understated enough to be quite chameleonic and but with enough interesting detail to still allow them to make a bit of a statement.

What I Wore: MBFWA Day Four

18th May, 2016

I wanted to wear a striking colour today and this one-shoulder dress by TOME really fit the bill. I love the bold mustard hue which worked well offset by gold accessories including my new favourite — my Eddie Borgo choker. The slightly billowy cut of the dress has a relaxed sophistication about it and the hint of skin gave it a slightly Grecian feel.

This dress is quite dramatic and a bit of a showstopper, however I don’t want to just save it for the occasional night out. Where’s the cost per wear in that? I think you can take a dress like this and turn it into something daytime appropriate by throwing a leather jacket on top. It’s something I would definitely consider wearing to an event like Fashion Week. Check out your own wardrobe and see how you can extend the wear of a cocktail dress by simply adding a key addition such as a jacket or blazer. Who says you can’t wear sequins during the day?

Shop the look: Killer heels

3rd February, 2016

 

Any shoe that falls into the statement heels category has my heart. Show-stopping heels are one of the quickest and easiest ways to take an outfit next-level. In fact, I often update my wardrobe each season by buying one to two pairs of statement heels. I find that it’s the kind of purchase I can always get plenty of wear out of in the years to come. All my favourite designers’ shoe game has been strong this season but these are some of my current faves. Hopefully you’ll find a new addition to your shopping list!

PROENZA SCHOULER

Mules are huge this season, but when you also add a metallic heel and knot detailing it definitely seals the deal as a purchase worth making.

STUART WEITZMAN

Simple, classic and elegant – you cannot go wrong with this shoe. This is a style that every woman should have as it’s a great go-to shoe for when you’re dressing up for a night out or for a formal occasion such as a wedding.

GIVENCHY

Ah leopard print. The unexpected neutral. I’ve got a few leopard print pieces in my wardrobe and I’ve found they’re quite easy to mix and match so this statement heel would definitely be in high rotation for me.

SOPHIA WEBSTER

These caged heels would get a major workout in my wardrobe. This style while intricate and quite bold would work easily with everything from a pair of leather leggings to a cocktail dress to a skirt.

CAMILLA AND MARC 

If you’re not a fan of a teetering on a stiletto heel then a block heel is ideal as it provides slightly more support (not to mention it’s easier to walk in!). The gold buckles and multistrap design makes this statement heel quite modern and fresh.

ALAÏA

I love Alaïa heels for their great craftsmanship but also the fact they’re just so fashion-forward. The beautiful blush colour makes this an easy shoe to mix and match with lots of different looks but the cutouts and stitching are the kind of finishing touches that elevate it from your average, garden-variety heel.

CAMILLA AND MARC

The fringe detailing on this shoe adds just the right amount of interest to make it stand out but the fact it’s black makes it a staple.

I love clashing prints. If you’re going to do print on print it’s best to make them clash. I think it creates more of an impact than having head to toe matching prints. I really like the graphic print on this black and White Sportmax jumper and decided to team it with one of my old Balenciaga vintage skirts – it’s still in the same monochrome family but the prints are really contrasting.

This is my take on a traditional suit. It might be too plunging or risqué for others but you could easily make it office-friendly by putting a shirt underneath or swap the skirt for one sans split. If you had a lower heel for the office and a statement heel for a night out I think it’s a really great look to take you from the office to after work drinks.

What I wore: Metallics

21st May, 2015

I think metallics are really versatile. I think this metallic Alex Perry dress is great for a nighttime party look, especially if you’re looking for something a bit more dramatic and different. But if you want to wear metallics during the day you could team a metallic skirt with a white shirt and some brogues. Easy!

What I Wore: Prix De marie claire

23rd April, 2015

I braved the crazy torrential downpour we’ve been having in Sydney to attend the Prix De Marie Claire awards on Tuesday night and I’m so glad I did – it was an amazing evening. I wanted to go for more moodier tones so I opted for this Christopher Esber dress and my statement Alaia heels.
