Which spring 2014 fashion trends are for you? Part 1

Spring 2014 fashion trends metallics

Spring has sprung in my part of the world. It did take its time to reach the forecast 27 degrees yesterday and today is forecast at only 22 but there is a distinct seasonal change in the air. Whenever that happens, I get a sudden urge to re-organise and re-edit my wardrobe. I know this

The Model and Me: Elm

Hello first day of spring. You make me so incredibly happy with your mild sunny days and cool, doona-worthy nights. You remind me that it’s time for a pedicure, that regular leg-scaping is now mandatory and that it’s time to re-organise the wardrobe and re-discover what I wore last time it was warm. It’s also

What to pack for a weekend conference

I spent some time yesterday planning and packing for the next three days. I’m heading down the road to the Gold Coast, picking up my partners-in-crime room mates at Brisbane Airport on the way. Our destination is the QT Gold Coast and the fifth annual Problogger Training Event, at which I’m speaking at on both days.

When my blogging friend Emily announced that she was starting her own online clothing store, I took immediate notice. See, Em has a natural way with relaxed style. The kind of effortless, casual style that suits anyone with even a hint of boho love in their wardrobe. If you follow along with my #everydaystyle outfit

When was the last time you had a bra fitting?

Do you think that our hang-ups with getting a bra fitted can be traced back to the first time? I know mine probably can be. I didn’t even want to acknowledge that I had boobs, let alone have my mother see them and declare that those tiny puppies needed to make a trip to Myer

Did you get caught in the rain event at the weekend? Aside from the fact that I find it fascinating that we are now calling a day of precipitation an EVENT, I did make the most of the last blast of winter and pulled on the boots, faux fur collar and coat for a farewell party.

Whose TV style do you like?

It’s less than a week since Nina Proudman left our screens – leaving our wardrobes floating in limbo land, unsure we’ll ever get a new Nina-inspired fashion moment again. Apart from working your way back through four years of Nina posts here, what’s a girl to do? Look elsewhere for a little on-screen inspiration? Are

I wore a jumpsuit. Something I never thought I would ever write here. Something I thought I’d never wear. Proves that you should never say never, I say. Sometimes it’s not the fashion trend you should be afraid of but more who’s designing that trend. Let me paint the picture. In the week before my

I was asked this week which were my favourite outfits on Season 5 of Offspring – for Billie and Nina Proudman. It wasn’t that tough to answer (you can see my answers here). Until I watched last night’s finale. Last night Nina served us up three outfits as a parting gift to us all. And

The Model and Me: Phyllis and Mimosa

One of the most common style questions that lands in my inbox is: “what should I wear to my/my girlfriend’s/my sister’s milestone birthday?”. Obviously it depends on the venue, time of day and whether any dress code is expected but, for my money, options generally come down to a frock or a pants and top scenario.

One of the many things that the costume designers on Offspring get very right is the fact that a normal woman would re-wear a large proportion of their wardrobe. I love that we see Nina and Billie wearing designs that they’ve worn over the past few seasons. It gives us permission to the same. It also

One of the wonderful privileges that have in my job as a blogger (and as of tomorrow an author!) is that I can support independent fashion designers. I know many of you reading have discovered these designers through my blog and that feels like I’m playing a part in supporting a creative industry that needs our

Should you wear ripped jeans?

The real women of #everydaystyle wearing ripped jeans

If anyone had told me six months ago that I’d not only be wearing ripped jeans but actually loving wearing them, I would have laughed quite loudly at the suggestion. I did the ripped thing back in the day – when the early ’90s were leveraging themselves out of the ’80s and into the grunge

We interrupt our regular Nina Proudman style program to bring you some style thoughts from Jane Harber, the actor who plays Zara in Ten’s Offspring. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet and interview Jane when she was on a day trip to Brisbane to talk Offspring with media. It’s pure coincidence that we’re both

The Model and Me: Motto

Motto top and pants SS14-15

There are times when I put on a garment and cannot believe just how right the designer gets it in regards to creating something that can be so comfortable AND so flattering. This is THE winning combination in my style book. Earlier this year, Australian label Motto introduced me to its Lauren cropped pant. There
