I started my “your style questions answered” posts in response to the number of emails I get from readers asking for specific style advice.

The irony of this post is not lost on me. According to my trusty weather app, the mercury is set to hit 39 degrees in Brisbane today. HELLO. Isn’t it supposed to be autumn? I’ll be harnessing all my own tips for keeping makeup from sliding off my face as I head out to a
