I wore something quite classic yesterday but today I wanted to mix it up a little. My look today is a little edgier and all about playing with different textures. Usually my outfits start with a single piece and in this instance it was all about the cropped Prada denim jacket. The feathered collar really upped the glam factor and seemed so fitting for the occasion. I also loved mixing relaxed denim with the dramatic nature of the feathers for a truly striking centrepiece to my look.
With such a statement piece already in place, I thought I could take it up a notch even more by opting for a black polyurethane Georgia Alice skirt. I thought it provided the perfect contrast piece to the softer and more playful nature of the jacket.
As far as shoes go I decided on simple black heels to temper the dramatic nature of the rest of my outfit. But I think you can always afford to have a little fun with your accessories! With the current trend towards sunglasses with smaller frames I gravitated towards these Poppy Lissiman sunglasses. Sharp with a slightly futuristic vibe I thought they went perfectly with the rest of my ensemble. My trusty Gucci Dionysius bag can always be called upon to add a fun feature to any look and in this instance it was the perfect fashion full stop.

I flew down to Melbourne last week to attend the Myer Contemporary Brands Launch during VAMFF which was held in St Kilda at a gorgeous space called the George Ballroom at The George Hotel. The iconic building was the perfect location to officially launch the Autumn ’16 collections of designers such as Georgia Alice (who I was wearing), Aje, Daniel Avakian, White Suede, búl, Skin & Threads and Acler. Myer’s brand ambassadors were there including Jodi Anasta, Rachael Finch and of course, Jennifer Hawkins to help showcase the range and we were treated to a gorgeous lunch. The models walked around during the lunch to show the various looks from the designers featured and provided a great fashion moment. Keep an eye out for the new looks in store.
