In another “outfit I really want to wear when events are a thing again” update, here’s a Dion Lee LBD that’s all kinds of beautiful and just made for occasion dressing. I’d originally considered wearing this to Fashion Week, but since it was cancelled, I’m now looking forward to when another opportunity presents itself to wear this dress.
The one thing you can always rely on when it comes to anything designed by Dion Lee is that there’s always a structural feature that adds an element of drama to a look. In this case the exposed corset and back adds an edgy touch, while the lace softens it and gives it an elegant feel.
To allow the dress to do the talking, simple accessories are key. I opted for a pair of minimalist Gianvito Rossi shoes with crystal heel detail while a small Miu Miu clutch was the perfect full stop to this look, adding a little bit of glam, and a lot of elegance.
Long sleeved dresses are a chic staple that I think every woman should have in her wardrobe. The below Colovos dress is a great new addition to my closet and it’s proven itself to be ultra wearable, and so versatile too. I love the cosy feel of a rib dress, which ticks the a major box as I’m all about comfort dressing, but it also looks polished which makes it perfect for wearing to a variety of different occasions. What I do love about it however is the colour blocking pattern. The blue tones work great against each other and really add a striking touch. Whilst the handkerchief hem gives it an interesting silhouette.
I wanted to add some refined accessories to this outfit so opted for pieces that were sleek and simple. The top handle bag by The Daily Edited is big enough to house my essentials but small enough to look ultra polished and I love the fact that its shape is really modern. Whilst simple strappy shoes by Gianvito Rossi help finish off this ensemble, adding an elegant element that’s also right on trend.
What I love most about this By Johnny dress is the cute bell sleeve detail and the grey marle fabric which gives it an interesting finishing touch. The neoprene fabric is also ideal for accommodating a bump but I love the fact it’s still quite structured and makes for a great silhouette. To give the look a playful touch I teamed it with my circle glasses from Miu Miuand dressed up the look with my favourite nudeGianvito Rossi heels. I kept the rest of my accessories quite simple with myChristian Paulwatch and a sweet candy pink clutch byThe Daily Edited.

I’ve always believed that you should be able to wear one item in multiple ways to ensure you get the most for your fashion dollar. This sleeveless trench is the perfect example of that. I have worn the trench as a dress in this instance and simply belted it to give it some shape but worn open and loose, it can easily work back with a pair of jeans and a tee. Great fabrics and textures are what enables a garment to have longevity and the lightweight linen of this trench will ensure that I can extend its wear through to the summer months. Also keeping an outfit in similar tones is often a great way to pull a look together and makes a chic, but subtle impact.
I’ve been getting so much mileage out of this Bec & Bridge wrap dress. Not only is it the perfect grey marle, it’s lightweight, super comfortable and it’s the kind of dress that travels easily as it’s so compact so it’s been a go-to when I’m travelling interstate. It’s also really easy to transition it from day to night just by switching up a pair of flats for heels so it ticks the versatile box, too. Also now that we’re in that trans-seasonal period between autumn and winter, it’s the ideal dress to take me through to the cooler months. Plus as an added bonus it’s the perfect maternity dress. Wrap dresses are a pregnancy staple as they can easily accomodate a growing belly so I can see myself wearing this non-stop in the coming months.
Christopher Esber is one of my favourite Australian designers. This skirt and top is straight from his Resort 15/16 collection which he presented this morning. As I mentioned here, I love matching skirt and top sets as they’re a great alternative to a dress. I love the inky hue of this set – such a gorgeous shade and the subtle pleats in the skirt also give it interesting detail.
The local version of Buro 24/7, the website founded by Miroslava Duma was officially welcomed into Australia last night at the Opera House. So, what to wear to a launch being hosted by one of the most well dressed women in the world? I eventually opted for a strapless white dress by Christopher Esber and nude Gianvito Rossi sandals. Classic but party ready!
It was all about neutrals and gold today for the Bec and Bridge show. Here’s what I had with my today – MBFWA pass, phone, makeup for touch ups, my Prism sunglasses and thankfully I managed to squeeze it all into my Ferragamo clutch!
What to wear when invited to lunch with a fashion icon such as Nicole Richie? I went straight to Belinda International who stock the most amazing range of international designers. I eventually decided on this monochrome Roland Mouret dress and paired it back with statement Gianvito Rossi heels. I actually went to lunch straight from the Who Magazine Beautiful People shoot so my hair and makeup was rather conveniently all done and ready to go. It’s nice when the fashion gods are smiling down on you like that!
I can’t get enough of the white on white trend at the moment. To attend the recent launch of David Jones’ Autumn/Winter 2015 collection I wanted to wear Aussie designers in the DJs stable so I opted for a Manning Cartell coat and skirt and camisole by Camilla and Marc. To keep the look looking quite tonal I went with a brand new addition to my shoe collection, lace-up Gianvito Rossi heels.
