Oh Nina. Oh Patrick. Oh Mick. Oh Rocket.
What an episode?! Seriously, if they hadn’t added in a drunken Nina dancing (even worse than me) at Tuff Muff, I’d be crying into my laptop right now. (Catch Offspring online here if you missed it)
Let’s get down to it and talk through some of Nina’s looks. Because I know you want to
There were three main outfits (aside from the montage at the beginning):
In each Nina was wearing her signature long taupe, heeled boots.
Let’s talk about the silk peasant maxi skirt first because excitement of excitement, Anna, the designer behind Violet & I tweeted that it was from the label’s summer 11-12 collection. Here it is in an alternate colour as well as the green in a maxi dress.
If you’re a size 8 or 10 and like the skirt in this colourway, it’s available on sale for an almighty bargain at The Indigo Prairie.
I do love discovering another Australian fashion designer through Nina’s wardrobe. Below is just a snippet about the label. I’m already in love.
Since launching her first collection entitled ‘Open Road’ in Spring 2009, (Violet & I’s) Anna has continued to design beautiful, vintage inspired garments, each with a touch of bohemian elegance. Little wonder, as her studio walls are plastered with pages torn from 70′s Vogue magazines and photographs of fresh faced beauties.
Check out the stockists page as well as the lookbook for this season. There are a number of pieces that would sit very well in Nina’s wardrobe. Here are just two.
Nina worked her Violet & I skirt back with a tucked in white gypsy top with a black bra on show. Mr Styling You texted me (I’m in Sydney overnight for work) to say he very much liked this look. I informed him if I attempted it, I would not look Nina sexy, more Nikki trampy. It’s a fine line, Stylers.
I also want to talk about the kimono tops that Nina is fond of. I LOVE this look. It’s layering at its most stylish, with a coloured tank-top underneath and a brightly coloured scarf slung around the neck. LOVE. Just the right balance between casual and effortless style. Something we could all take on board.
I did love also seeing Nina in a frock. It’s been a while. Did you like? Did you cry and laugh through this episode?
