What I Wore: Party Pink

2nd August, 2022

This outfit from my time in London now seems like a lifetime ago, but it was such a fun party look I had to dedicate an outfit post to it. There’s something about the opportunity to get all dolled up while on holiday that’s extra special, even better when I get to fly the flag for an Aussie designer. I wore this to an event I was attending with my brother and sister-in-law and loved how feminine and party-ready it was. The gown is by Rachel Gilbert and is featured in their spring collection. The pastel pink hue is fun but what I loved most was the oversized ruffle detail. It was such a bold feature but had a lovely softness to it with its almost floral effect – it reminded me of the beautiful petals of a peony.

Of course with such a dress it’s all about considered accessories—pieces that will complement rather than overpower the dress. So I went with some sky high Jimmy Choo platform heels. With the metallic finish and the extra height, they were perfect for pairing with this gown. I also love the contrast between pink and red, so this garnet red Bulgari bag was the ideal piece to accompany me for the evening. The chain handle made it convenient to carry around but I could also wear it tucked under my arm like a clutch—a versatile detail that’s great for any event look.

What I wore this week: Spring racing

11th November, 2021

I’ve been lucky enough to attend a few spring racing events over the last few weeks and as a result, had the opportunity to have some fun with a few new looks. After months in lockdown it’s certainly a nice feeling to get dressed up again! I love dressing for racing events because there’s something nice about being able to wear a polished look from head to toe, complete with headwear and I’m often lucky enough to be able to work with some amazing designers when it comes to my outfits. While I didn’t wear all these looks this week, I thought it might be worth sharing a few of my favourite looks so far this spring racing season.

I was attending the launch of the Lexus Melbourne Cup on this occasion and adored the chartreuse colour of this Mariam Seddiq dress. It was also such a bold silhouette with the dramatic cape, the bold shoulders and ruching, that I really felt it made a statement. I decided to cinch the look in with an Alessandra Rich belt and paired it with a simple Viktoria Novak headband as a finishing touch.

I was doing a live cross with Channel 7 and loved the vibe of this blazer dress by Rebecca Vallance. Blazers are a staple in my wardrobe and I like the twist on it when it’s worn as a dress. The houndstooth print added some boldness to my look and with the contrasting lapels and pearl buttons, it was a polished ensemble that was both classic and modern. I didn’t want to overwhelm with my accessories so I opted for an oversized black bow, which is always one of my faves when it comes to headwear.

Sometimes I get to wear dresses like this and I have to pinch myself! I wore this for a shoot with The Daily Telegraph newspaper to promote The Everest race day and didn’t want to take it off. I felt like a bonafide princess, plus who doesn’t love tulle when it’s at it’s pink hued best! I loved the tiered skirt and the plunging neckline, not to mention the statement sleeves on this particular design and it was so much fun to wear.

Hanging with Emma Freedman at a Lexus press day. I really liked the combination of pink and red in this particular look. There’s something about those two hues together that just gels really well, so when I went for this one shoulder Mossman mini dress, I knew I had to pair it with this this adorable pink headband by Ford Millinery. My Aquazzura heels are shoes I’ve had for awhile and it’s so funny when I revisit favourites such as these shoes, because I always fall in love with them again.

What I Wore: 2021 Golden Slipper

1st November, 2021

Spring racing is very much in full swing and I couldn’t help but want to embrace a look that was inspired by the season. For 7 Racing hosting duties at the Golden Slipper, it was all about beautiful, vibrant pastel hues. I couldn’t go past this Oscar de la Renta one-shoulder dress, with its ethereal draping and shades of pink and orange. It was feminine and also had a fun energy to it which made it the perfect look for being trackside.

With such a bold colour palette to work with I didn’t want to shy away with my choice of accessories and wanted to go equally as striking. The brief was well and truly met with these Bottega Veneta mesh heels. They’re a playful pink and feature a sprinkling of sparkles which definitely ticked the statement box. Plus, how great would they be for a festive occasion? In terms of bag choice, I definitely wanted to embrace pink again so this shoulder bag by Bulgari was the perfect piece to accompany me. As always headwear is a must so I went with this gold hair accessory by Ford Millinery. I loved the fact that it was sleek and and simple and just the right piece to add a bold touch to my ensemble.

What I wore this week

27th May, 2021

It’s always fun to get to play around with a few new pieces in a wardrobe rotation and this week it’s all about some fun winter purchases. I always map out what I’m going to splurge on at the start of a new season and so far, the pieces I have have been seamlessly able to work into my regular outfit repertoire. I think that’s always the sign of a good purchase! From double denim one minute to splashes of Barbie pink the next, here’s what I wore this week.

Sometimes a look is cemented on the colour alone, and that was certainly the case with this Aje suit. I was off to lunch in this number, and it certainly perked me up — how could it not with that playful made-for-Barbie pink? Also I think this is further proof that a suit doesn’t have to be exclusively the domain of classic neutrals. You can definitely afford to have a little fun with it.

With my little sidekick here, and rocking our shades of pink. I love the soft baby pink hue of this jumper as it’s so easy to match with virtually everything in my wardrobe. I paired it with some trusty denim and sneakers and I was ready to tackle my day with Grace.

Some people love it, some people hate it but I’m the first to admit that I’m quite partial to a Canadian tuxedo. This double denim look is all Camilla and Marc, and both work really well together, but also separately. I’ve been able to work these two pieces in so many different ways, which is always a big tick in my book.

My go-to uniform: a white tee and jeans. It always works without fail and I know I can rely on it on those days when I just want a no-fuss look that still looks stylish. I added a touch of colour with the emerald green Dior bag (which FYI is such a great size as it pretty much fits my entire life comfortably) and my fave sandals. I love when a look just comes together like this.

What I Wore: Dark Magic

27th April, 2021

I’ve always classified a great suit in the same category as an LBD: a wardrobe essential. I am always on the look out first and foremost for nice tailoring. I think a suit has to fit well so there’s no room for excess bagginess or too much length or fabric, it has to sit just right. Plus I’m always on the hunt for interesting finishing touches. Whether it be a unique choice of button, or just an edgy design feature, I think it can turn a good suit into something special. Which is why I was initially draw to this Sofia Irina suit. The long length blazer and cigarette pant are sharp and sleek as all good suits should be, but what I liked was the cut-out. I think it disrupts the silhouette in the best way possible, giving it a point of difference and just a hint of sexiness. It really makes this suit a great contender for a night out or a special event look. But if you work somewhere where a little risk-taking in the fashion department is welcomed, this could definitely count as office attire.

I wanted to elongate the silhouette so I went for black Bottega heels, which also add a nice feminine touch. Plus I’ve always loved the vibe of a strappy heel worked back with sharp suiting, there’s just something so sophisticated about it. While wearing all black from head to toe is a great failsafe look, I wanted to add a little extra colour to avoid it from looking flat so I thought adding a white Bulgari bag achieved a great monochromatic effect.

What I Wore: Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day

17th April, 2021

I was on reporting duties for 7 Racing again for Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day at Sydney’s Royal Randwick. Today was all about this amazing Louis Vuitton dress. While the silhouette is classic and understated, what I love about it is the detail and colour that elevates it into something more. The blue and white colour palette, with the oversized LV monogram adds a bold touch to this look, while the oversized full length zipper makes for a modern finish.

It’s autumn racing time which means straw hats are in hibernation and it’s all about rich textures such as felt. This hat by Helen Kaminski was perfect for the day, but what I love is that it’s such a sleek design that I could easily wear it out and about during winter. As far as accessorising for this look, I knew I wanted to add another punchy colour to avoid it getting lost within the striking features of the dress, and this pink bag by Bulgari seemed just the right fit. Then to cap of my look I opted for minimalist Stuart Weitzman heels to avoid any busyness from overtaking the look and feel of the dress.

What I Wore: White Out

23rd March, 2021

Striking the right balance with an outfit is important to me, so I often like to work dressy pieces with something slightly more casual to avoid it looking too “done”. This ribbed racerback dress by Glassons is a versatile piece because it can easily be dressed up or down; I could easily wear this with sneakers one minute and heels the next. What I love is that it has a sporty vibe to it, which I think gives it a slightly more modern feel. On this day I opted to dress it up with Bottega heels but I felt it just needed something a little more relaxed to keep it balanced. Enter the shearling lined cropped jacket from Glassons’ sustainable range. It’s a gorgeous neutral colour which was perfect for pairing with a crisp white dress, but the silhouette and lining help to steer it into more off duty territory, which was exactly what I was after.

It was important to still keep the glam factor however so black heels seemed the ideal option. It’s a classic colour palette, but it’s an up-to-the-minute silhouette giving it an on trend touch. Working with such a sleek shape with the dress, I felt it needed a contrast accessory, something slightly more structured in style, so my white Bulgari bag came to mind. Also, as it’s white, it helped achieve continuity between my outfit and my accoutrements. For the final finishing touches, it was all about a pair of statement earrings to add some fun, while cat eye sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman was the ideal full stop to this look.

What I Wore: Golden Eagle

31st October, 2020

It was a funny day today in Sydney today with it being overcast one minute, sunny the next, then a downpour. So, choosing an outfit to wear while reporting for 7Racing at the Golden Eagle at Sydney’s Rosehill Racecourse, it was all about embracing something striking. When the weather’s like this it’s always nice to be able to wear something that’s bold and vibrant — I’ve always found about a great outfit that can really lift your mood. So, I went with this stunning Aje dress which dialed up the drama with its statement features. The bottle green shade, the one-shoulder neckline, side cut-out and voluminous puff sleeve ensured this dress was anything but ordinary, and perfect for a day reporting trackside.

I’ve worked with milliner Nerida Winter for several years and this veiled headpiece was just the right accessory to keep up the dramatic feel of this ensemble. I went for a metallic snakeskin Bulgari bag, which with its structured style really helped to balance the softer lines of the dress. Once again, I had the opportunity to wear some beautiful jewellery by Chaumet. A fine necklace, along with a delicate stack of bangles and a ring were just the right amount of bling to add some understated sparkle and finesse to my look.

What I Wore: Puff Piece

22nd September, 2020

I love working with a great statement top to anchor an entire look, such as this Hellessy top. The gorgeous puff sleeve silhouette is right on-trend and such a fun piece to work with. And the teal shade is just the right amount of freshness for a spring look. While the cold shoulder detail and the ruching finish on the sweetheart neckline all add just the right amount of drama to really elevate this look.

To allow the top to take centre stage I paired it with a white pair of Bec and Bridge jeans. These pants have been on high rotation as I love the fact they’re so easy to pair with most things, but the little touches like the subtle pintuck details helps give it a little extra depth.

I decided to venture down the path of bold accessories. In this instance it was all about a crisp white, structured Bulgari bag to add a touch of elegance. While blush pink Le Specs sunglasses added a funky and playful touch.

What I Wore: Baroque Beauty

12th August, 2020

I’ve been slowly working more spring/summer pieces into my wardrobe repertoire and it’s been such a refreshing change from jeans and jumpers! I’m loving this dress by Aussie brand Leo & Lin for myriad reasons but I couldn’t go past this gorgeous baroque print. It’s elegant in look and feel, and the intricacy of the print gives it an elevated vibe. The shirt dress silhouette also keeps it classic, while the different design features such as the sharp collar and the handkerchief hem give it a little personality. I often feel that it’s all in the detail when it comes to any ensemble and this is one style that definitely wins in that department.

Working with a black and white colour palette, I wanted to keep the theme going throughout with the rest of my accessories. So I opted for a white Bulgari Serpenti bag. A crisp white accessory adds to the sleekness of this look, but doesn’t overwhelm. While small frame Poppy Lissiman sunglasses in black add a fun feel to this look.
