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: Denim Daze

20th December, 2016

I love the relaxed look of a summer dress paired with denim. This striped Acler dress looks quite dressy on its own but when teamed with a frayed jacket it gives it a little bit more of a fun, quirky vibe. I can’t get enough of the the above Steele statement jacket with its hand embroidered finish – the floral detail and slogan gives it a point of difference and looks quite fresh when teamed with crisp white. I wanted to add some interesting accessories to elevate the look and couldn’t go past Gucci. The embellished Dionysus canvas bag and gold heels with a pearl detailing perfectly offset the pared back, simplicity of the rest of the outfit.

What I Wore: Polo in the City

15th November, 2016



Over the weekend I headed out to Sydney’s Centennial Park to attend an event to kick off the Land Rover Polo in the City series. It was a gorgeous day so I wanted to wear something light and airy and the above lace Zimmermann dress seemed a perfect fit. With a midi hem it was just the right side of demure and as the dress was so intricate I wanted to keep accessories to a minimum so I teamed it with my gilded Gucci heels and a Helen Kaminiski straw boater. It was a lovely day out and I even managed to catch up with lots of friends too, which is always a nice bonus.

My 2016 Melbourne Cup Diary

3rd November, 2016


Another year, another Melbourne Cup done!

This year, my day started early at our apartment in Melbourne. That is where we stay with my family so it was great to be able to spend Cup Day with them. With three kids and a baby present it was certainly busy but it was nice that my girls and my niece and nephew were all with us. I spent the morning getting ready with Mum and my sister-in-law Hoda and as always it was fun for us to all get our hair and makeup done together. My outfit was already sorted (it’s always something I like to lock in well in advance) so it was just a matter of putting the final finishing touches to it and I was ready to walk out the door.

We were lucky enough to be picked up by a Lexus car to take us to the Birdcage and when we got there headed straight for the Lexus Design Pavilion, which as per usual was on another level. It was definitely the place to be in the Birdcage and stood out as the most stylish and sophisticated marquee. The interiors were amazing and the architecture of the entire building was striking. Guests in the Pavilion included Jessica Gomes, Emma Freedman and Margaret Zhang so it was a great opportunity to catch up with a lot of people. We had an amazing lunch experience in there too which involved a three course tasting plate hosted by Ben Shewry, the head chef and owner of Attica restaurant in Melbourne. Needless to say, the food was delicious.

I was also on Lexus ambassador duties on the day so I had to juggle multiple media interviews including TV and radio spots which is always fun! However the most enjoyable part of the day is definitely being able to watch the race with my family, Mum especially. She had a runner in the race called Excess Knowledge so we watched the it with her in the owners’ stand. It’s always really nice being able to take in the race with her as I know all the hard work that goes into making it to the Melbourne Cup.

Cup Day is always a crazy busy day and it often passes by in a whirlwind of admiring all the beautiful outfits and headwear, toasting the day with champagne and race day duties for me but it’s something I look forward to every year. Counting down to 2017!

What I Wore: 2016 Melbourne Cup

1st November, 2016






When it comes to attire for the Melbourne Cup it’s all about going bold. And this year, I decided to embrace colour and opted for this beautiful pink and forest green dress by Gucci. The sweet ruffles on the sleeves give the dress an air of playfulness which really works for today and whilst the unexpected colour combination is striking it’s the pearl detailing on the back and front that really caught my eye – it’s so unbelievable in person that it definitely cemented the dress as THE dress for Cup Day.

Pink and green can be a little tricky when it comes to shoe options however it was Gucci to the rescue again. The gold heels dotted with pearls that I spotted in their latest collection perfectly offset the hues in my dress. With such a bold look, I wanted to strike the right balance between making a statement with my headwear whilst not overpowering the dress and shoes. The flower crown by Hatmaker was just on the right side of understated to really complement my overall look. The gems throughout the crown also subtly picked up some of the colours in my dress and really helped highlight the pink and green.

I hope you’re having a great Melbourne Cup day!

A touch of Gucci

12th April, 2016


The interlocking G’s of Gucci are synonymous with style, elegance and class. The brand is having a renaissance with its current accessories range which is seriously on point whilst remaining true to the brand’s fashion forward aesthetic. Gucci has always had a presence in my wardrobe and the moment I saw the Gucci Marmont it was love at first sight. The deep cherry leather, the elegant chain strap, signature green and red stripes and the Gucci insignia make it a statement bag that will last the test of time. The nude leather platform pumps are also the kind of eye-catching shoe that will definitely impress. I think accessories can really make or break an outfit and when your bag and shoes are a killer combination you definitely can’t go wrong.

Gucci have recently relaunched their Australian site and I have to say, it’s a guaranteed add to cart zone. The site has everything from the new Gucci Tian range which features a traditional Chinese floral motif and delicately painted birds and insects and are the must-have accessory of the season, to classic Gucci staples such as belts with the classic double Gs and on trend leather mules with the iconic horsebit detail. I’m all about investment pieces and you can’t go wrong with a touch of Gucci. The brand has withstood the test of time and continues to get better with age. And now they’ll even deliver right to your door.



Celeb look of the week: Gal Gadot

17th July, 2015


Israeli model and actress Gal Gadot is not only the face of Gucci’s new fragrance, Bamboo but she’s also playing Wonder Woman for the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. She certainly has some sartorial superheroes if this pleated Gucci dress is anything to go by. A crisp white dress is always the epitome of chic.

What I wore: black and white

6th May, 2015


I’m a big fan of monochrome – I think anything in black and white is very chic. I think even though this dress has a plunging neckline it’s very feminine with the flower detail and also the polka dots. I wore this dress to lunch with friends but I also think it could be perfect for a wedding or going to the races, especially Derby Day because it’s black and white.

Actor and singer Tim Campbell is due to release his debut album in April. Campbell is best known for his work on Home and Away and, most recently, House Husbands, where he played Tom Parker, the working husband of Gyton Grantley’s character, Kane. Kane and Tom marked the first time that an Australian drama has featured a gay couple raising a child. However, last month it was announced that Campbell’s character has been written out of the Nine drama and will not return for the third season. I caught up with the 38-year-old to chat about his album, the shock announcement of his departure from the show and his off-air relationship with singer Anthony Callea.
