What I Wore: Australian Fashion Week 2018 Day 5

17th May, 2018

I told you I’m all about the suit at the moment. And with it being the last day of Fashion Week for me I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wear this beautiful Alexander McQueen blazer. The cut, the fit and what a colour! These Maggie Marilyn pants have a slightly sporty vibe about them and made the ideal contrast piece to the structured, polished feel of the blazer.

When wearing such a bold, vibrant colour I think it’s a good idea to keep accessories quite pared back. I kept to a simple black quilted mini top handle bag by Dior to carry all my essentials and Christian Louboutin bow heels to give me some additional height (this is also a must when wearing wide leg pants). Small frame Poppy Lissiman sunglasses rounded out my look and helped marry the sleek and fashion forward look I was going for.

What I Wore: Monochrome

12th April, 2018

I think black and white is always a winning combination so it seemed fitting that I wore monochrome whilst on reporting duties for Seven Racing at The Championships. I also knew that I wanted to wear something clean and simple as I would be on camera and didn’t want anything too fussy. Whilst I gravitate towards wearing white because it’s always guaranteed to look fresh, what I loved most about this top and skirt combination by Stella McCartney were its finishing touches. The split sleeve, the ribbed texture, the ruffled waist trim—all of these elements made the set stand out and gave it a little personality. The combination all worked together to give my ensemble some depth without being too over the top.

In keeping with the monochrome theme I kept the rest of my accessories in the same colour palette. My favourite piece had to be the Nerida Winter headband. The statement bow at the back elevated it and gave it a sweet touch. I think it’s sometimes nice to have a big standout feature on the back for something different. Simple studded Alaïa heels and a chain strap Dior bag finished off the look and gave it a polished touch.

What I Wore: Prepped and Ready

22nd March, 2018

As most of you know I’m a huge fan of stocking my wardrobe with key style staples. They just make getting dressed a whole lot easier. The classic white shirt is high on my list of things every woman should have in her closet. So when I find a shirt that’s actually called The Perfect Silk Shirt it immediately has me excited. And indeed this Banded Together shirt does tick all the boxes. The cut is great, the split cuffs give it an interesting finishing touch and the necktie (which can be worn tied or loose) adds an element of versatility. What’s not to love?

A white shirt will go with pretty much anything which is why it’s universally praised as a fashion must-have. Whilst my pairing options were plenty, in this instance I went for a slight 60s vibe with a tweed mini in a subtle herringbone pattern. I liked that the skirt’s texture provided a great contrast to the smooth silk finish of my blouse.

The addition of my Gucci pearl belt instantly gave my outfit an on trend element which really lifted it from being too conservative. I wanted to keep the rest of my accessories quite simple so I opted for a mini quilted Dior chain strap bag and classic cat eye sunglasses, both have a classic feel but maintain a modern sensibility.

The beauty buys you need to check out this week

17th February, 2018

In need of a beauty fix? Then you’re in luck because there are some amazing buys worth checking out this week. I don’t know about you but I think there’s just something about popping on a new lipstick shade or cracking open a gorgeous new makeup palette for the first time that offers up quite the thrill. Here are some buys that will have any beauty fan wanting to add to cart.

 

Bobbi Brown 5-in-1 Essential Face Palette

If you travel a lot or just can’t be bothered having to deal with multiple products then this will solve all your dilemmas. With everything from concealer, to bronzer to foundation in the one palette you’ll always look impeccable when you’re on the go—and significantly lighter in cosmetics too.

Dior Addict Lip Glow

If you can never find the right lipstick shade this is one way to guarantee the perfect colour. This is reacts to the natural chemistry of your lips giving you a custom hue that’s uniquely suited to you.

Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Eye Palette

It’s hard to find a quad palette that has just the right shades (there’s often always a random colour that you’re not quite sure what to do with) but these are all gorgeous and quite wearable.

Kitsch Luxe Shower Cap

Oh the cuteness! Shower caps are often a necessity rather than an accessory but this solves that problem. If you’re not a fan of polka dots this range also comes in stripes and plain black.

Tom Ford Bronzing Powder

For a flush of “I just came back from an exotic tropical holiday” colour Tom Ford is your man. This bronzing powder not only gives great colour, the packaging is unbelievably chic. You’ll be looking for excuses to pull this one out for touch ups.

What I Wore: David Jones Autumn Winter 2018 launch

13th February, 2018

The David Jones Autumn Winter 2018 launch recently took place in Sydney and it had me seriously excited for the cooler weather to arrive. There are so many amazing trends to look forward to and I’m already inspired to start planning my new season looks. In the meantime however I’m making the most of the remaining days of warm weather and roadtesting summer ensembles. I love the futuristic meets sporty vibe of this top and skirt combination by Sportmax, and offset by simple accessories such as my go-to Alaïa heels and Dior bag, it made for the ideal fashion forward look for such a big event.

What I Wore: Gold Fever

9th January, 2018

Now that it’s officially the time of year in Australia where everyone’s in the mood to go out and enjoy a few cocktails and make the most of balmy summer nights I’m once again drawn to this Rebecca Vallance jumpsuit. I took it with me to Paris during my last holiday and loved that it felt so right for evenings out, making the most of the gorgeous weather. I’d usually associate gold lamé with more of a party look but the style of the jumpsuit, with its culotte style leg, square neckline and sweet waist tie keep it looking polished without losing any of its glam factor. The colour is so gorgeous that to continue the gilded theme I opted for my gold Gucci heels and favourite Eddie Borgo choker. To punctuate the head-to-toe metallic I went with a little black Dior bag with chain strap to carry all my essentials and leave my hands-free should I wish to enjoy a drink or two!

What I Wore: Statement Shirt Dress

29th August, 2017

There are times when a dress is all about the finishing touches and in the case of this Rebecca Vallance number the focal point is most certainly the triple bow detail. A long sleeved shirt dress is a favourite style of mine but I definitely couldn’t resist when I saw the ultra sweet bows on this particular piece. And when said bows are worked back against a gingham print it adds a playful vibe to the ensemble. The directional gathered sleeves help it from becoming too girly, whilst adding an interesting point of difference. Given the busy nature of the dress simplicity is key for the rest of the look. A simple pair of pointed slides by Nicholas Kirkwood and a chain strap bag continues the smart vibe of the outfit whilst the addition of a straw boater by Nerida Winter make it weekend ready.

Celeb look of the week: Elizabeth Olsen

30th January, 2015

Elizabeth-Olsen-resized

There must have been something in the water in the Olsen household – Mary-Kate and Ashley are a sartorial force to be reckoned with and their younger sister is no different. Elizabeth Olsen looks perfectly polished and demure at the Dior Couture show in Paris and gives us a little inspiration for winter along the way…
