What I Wore: 2019 Oaks Day

7th November, 2019

Oaks Day is traditionally ladies’ day so the dress code is all about soft feminine looks. It’s the perfect time to embrace my girly side, so I always have a lot of fun with my outfit on the day, favouring pretty prints and accessories.

I saw this Prada dress and thought it was perfect for the occasion. The accordion pleat skirt and the frilled bib detail is classic and polished, but the playful lip print gives it a more modern feel. It’s always fun to work a print into a race day look and I tend to gravitate towards those that are fun and have a vibrant energy.

It’s always great to designate a focal point to any outfit and in this instance it was definitely the dress. Pink and black is always a fun colour combination so I decided to accentuate the touches of pink on the dress with dark accessories. Of course, I couldn’t go past the black textured Maticevski Prometheus clutch with urchin-like beaded detail—it added a fashion forward element to my look and I love accessories that are unique looking. Black heels with knotted detail and an oversized bow worked well with the rest of my outfit. But it’s always fun to incorporate some truly beautiful jewellery into any race day look and the Chaumet bracelets I was wearing added a luxe touch to my ensemble.

What I Wore: Spring Racing launch dinner at Nobu

20th October, 2018

Earlier this week I hosted a dinner to kick off the Spring Racing Carnival at one of my favourite restaurants, Nobu at the Crown Resort in Melbourne. It was a small gathering of 30 people, comprising of family, friends and a few local media and I wanted the evening to be relaxed, fun and a great way to lead into one of my favourite (and busiest!) times of year. For such an event, I knew I wanted my outfit to be sleek, directional and incorporating a few elevated touches.

I worked with a good stylist friend for this particular occasion as my schedule was so frantic in the lead up to it that I knew I would need a little help pulling a look together. The standout piece of this ensemble was definitely the Maticevski skirt. I wish I could have shown you all in person, as it really is a knockout. The intricate detail, the elegant ruffles, the beautiful lace all combined made for a really striking effect. The addition of the cummerbund provided a strong contrast to the glamorous, feminine nature of the skirt. We decided on keeping the rest of my outfit quite simple so we simply paired the skirt with a white button down shirt from my closet—classic and elegant.

Given the monochrome colour palette, the ideal shoe came in the form of a pair of crossover strap heels from the recent collaboration between Off-White and Jimmy Choo. They were black and white (box ticked!) and had tiny writing on the straps which given my shoes were on show definitely gave them an interesting point of difference. The shoes were the perfect full stop to the rest of my look.

I often like having an outfit pulled together for me as it allows me to explore different looks, push my fashion boundaries and give my style a refresh. This look in particular, I think, was ideal for the occasion and had some great details that lifted it and gave it an edge.

MBFWA 2016: My fave shows

23rd May, 2016

mbfwa

The schedule for Fashion Week includes long days that involve seeing multiple shows from almost every major Australian designer. Throughout the course of the week I estimate that I would have seen hundreds of different looks and with so much to see during the week picking my standouts at the end is always really tough. However these shows in particular had me wanting to buy up a storm.

FINALE 3

LOOK 34

This was the first show of Fashion Week and took place at the Cutaway in Sydney’s Barangaroo. I loved the whole grandeur of the show and the location was spectacular. It was a real highlight and was a great way to kick off the whole week. The whole collection was beautiful but I particularly loved the knotted tops in the collection. Just stunning.

Rebecca Vallance

I loved Rebecca Vallance’s show. It’s the first time that she has shown in Australia and I hope she comes back for seasons to come. Her collection had some really beautiful pieces that aren’t necessarily trend-driven but are classic, wardrobe staples such as beautifully tailored dresses and jackets that will last more than one season.

Christopher Esber

The location of this presentation was unexpected with it taking place in a yoga studio in Sydney’s Potts Point however everything was quintessential Christopher Esber. The dresses were all really beautiful but what I love about his work is the attention to detail such as one particular top with netting and ties at the back and a dress with knots all over it that I’m still dreaming about.

Dion Lee

Dion Lee took his show to new heights by holding it in the Bloomberg high rise building in the Sydney CBD. It’s always hard to pick a favourite with Dion Lee because the craftsmanship on his garments is absolutely gorgeous. The detail on every piece is just so beautiful. He’s someone that I always look to for standout pieces and there were a few dresses there that were real showstoppers and I’m definitely bookmarking them for future events.

Bec & Bridge

One of my go-to labels for a party look is Bec & Bridge. Going to events all the time means I’m constantly on the look out for great dresses to wear and this particular collection had lots of great summer dresses in gorgeous colours that I could see myself in come summer time.

You know a collection is special when you see look after look come down the runway and want every single thing. This collection was so wearable and I could envisage several pieces in my wardrobe. Tome are one of my favourite brands and seeing their show definitely left me with some major outfit inspiration.
