7 ways to add texture to winter outfits

I was at the butchers yesterday and a woman accidentally bumped into me. You know if you do that to someone else, your natural instinct is to give that person a reassuring pat on the shoulder as you say sorry? Well yesterday, the reassuring pat I was on the receiving end of as I almost

What to pack for Hawaii

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away it was the mid ’80s and this university girl was known to fall immediately to the floor of any club – not because she had consumed too many beers. Actually the beer consumption may have helped with removing any fear from making such a fast vertical drop

The Model and Me: Surafina

Boy oh boy did the heavens open up here yesterday afternoon. Did you manage to stay dry if they opened for you too? Luckily we didn’t have to be anywhere and it was like being given permission to hunker down and fire up the Netflix offerings. I love a slouchy Sunday – or any slochy

How to create a winter workwear capsule wardrobe

Getting up and out the door for work is a mission at the best of times. Add in a cold, pitch-black morning and you will need to harness every ounce of motivation to leave the home feeling put together. The aim is definitely not to feel bulky in layers of clothes but to feel and look

The Model and Me: Metalicus

It’s almost six years since I began Model and Me posts here on Styling You. They began by accident after I had been asked by a boutique to model for them in a Metalicus fashion parade. This boutique stocked and sold Metalicus to women of all ages, shapes and sizes so they wanted the label

4 winter outfit ideas that don’t include jeans

My friend Carly (from Smaggle) commented on one of my outfits this week: “Your ‘winter’ style is so amusing to me. I’ve reached Melbourne peak fashion where I wear my down coat all day. I’m a walking ugg boot.” This made me laugh. So much. Because, yes, I am a Queensland girl and our winter attire looks

Are you a personal stylist?

Thanks again for all the lovely birthday wishes. I had a fabulous festival and the best thing is that it is set to continue as my girlfriends all chipped in and bought be a voucher to spend at a day spa. HELLO. Best friends ever. Today, I’ve got a very important task for you. It’s been

The Model and Me: Read and Bell

Good morning Stylers. Hip, hip hooray, it’s my birthday. I know, I know, I feel sorry for me too. Mondays and birthdays don’t sound very celebratory, do they? Rest assured, I’ve done plenty of celebrating across the weekend. Why have just one day when you can have a festival, I say. As you know from

How to layer clothes in winter without looking bulky

Pinch and a punch, it’s the first day of the month and the official start to winter. I’ve had a little taste of cooler weather this week and quickly remembered how our Queenslander house is not made for anything but summer. If you can get out into the sun, that’s a whole different story. Winter

The Model and Me: White Label Noba

Many things get me excited about what I do here at Styling You. Connecting with you, my gorgeous readers, that’s a big one. Another big one is meeting and getting to know a bunch of fabulously talented independent designers creating and working in the Australian fashion industry. I first met White Label Noba’s Tracey Watkins

19 ways to wear a scarf

I have a situation behind the door to my office/lady room. Said situation involves a colony of scarves. I do not use the word colony lightly as they do indeed seem to be breeding. Tell me the following scenario happens to you? I can be in any store and I’ll find myself magnetically drawn to any

15-piece Nina Proudman capsule wardrobe

There I was last week, salivating over dishes being plated up on Masterchef when this happened: Five seasons of riding the emotional rollercoaster that is life with Nina Proudman rolled into one showreel that nearly broke the interwebs (you can play catch up on the Offspring on Ten Facebook page). Oh NEENS. We’re so ready

The Model and Me: Adrift

The past few weeks when I’m planning out my outfits (and yes, I do this every Sunday – the plan is subject to change but it gives me a solid starting point), I look at the weather app in anticipation that autumn will finally be on my door step. I don’t think we’re in for an
