The Model and Me: Sacha Drake


All is right in my TV world. Game of Thrones is back. And so is Mad Men. I’m not planning to play Game of Thrones dress-ups any time soon but Mad Men? That’s another fashion story. The Madison Avenue, New York styles of the 1960s have endured, re-surfacing almost each season in some shape or

This is the second post in a series I’ve started on the blog that helps get your style questions answered (you can read the first here). My aim is to answer a few of the style questions that land in my inbox. I’m thinking that if one person has asked the question, there’s a fair chance

I’m getting very excited about the imminent return of Offspring to our TV screens. And yes, you can rely on me to again bring you a weekly Nina Proudman fashion update with a debrief of the Proudman family happenings on the side.

The crux of the post I wrote yesterday about the underweight models debate was some pretty strong beliefs that I hold. Beliefs that I hope you *feel* here when visiting and reading. 1. I believe every woman is real. This notion that real women are a certain size does not honour all women. And honour all

I’m weighing in on the underweight models debate

You know that feeling when things are bubbling away in your head and you realise that, like that fresh bottle of SodaStream tonic water you made yesterday afternoon, there is only room for so many bubbles in a bottle? Yes, that feeling. That’s what’s been happening in my head over the past few days. For

I have a thing for shift dresses. But if you are a regular here you’ll already know that. I love their body skimming capabilities, bringing comfort, class and style to one frock. When Leona Edmiston cuts a shift dress, I sit up and take notice. Mostly because every Leona shift I’ve bought to date has

It’s Denim Week on  Styling You’s everyday style round-up. It may not be anywhere near winter weather but a slight drop in temperatures around the country has seen more and more legs encased in denim. Albeit, many of said encased denim legs comes with their own ventilation holes. Yes, my friends, distressed denim is here

Have you noticed that black leather jackets are every where this autumn-winter? It’s the one clothing piece I’m mentally obsessing over and scheming ways in which I can add this investment piece to my wardrobe. And I know I should be actually buying one now because when the time comes that it’s cool enough for

Newsy bites and style insights

I’ve been taking a few nostalgic steps down Fashion Memory Lane of late. Or more specifically delving into my huge box of photos – photos shot on this quaint thing they called film. This fashion nostalgia has been brought on by a couple of things. First, Miss SY moved into my old university college so

My love for – and embracing of –  the boho style is something that has evolved since I started my own business and swapped a corporate-y wardrobe for a more casual one. Oh, and our fictitious friend Nina Proudman may have had something to do with me falling even more of a little more of

Owning and wearing printed pants was probably something I never thought I’d do. But it’s been more than two years since I had to eat my fashion words because the minute I tried this trend that doesn’t seem to be disappearing any time soon, I was hooked. Making pants your statement piece in an outfit

How a cape or kimono jacket can lift a basic outfit

Whenever I feature a cape or a kimono jacket here on the blog or Instagram, it seems that there are three camps you fall into when it comes to this garment type. 1. You’re already a card-carrying member of the kimono/cape camp. 2. You want to join in but haven’t found the right one for

If you’ve been reading Styling You for some time you would have seen me refer to the label Verily – many times. Perhaps you’ve even bought something from Leonie Macleod – the designer behind the label? Leonie is based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and I first met her a couple of years after interviewing her

Thank-you to everyone who wore red last Friday in support of the Morcombe family. I had goosebumps each time I saw another photo of someone supporting the #redfordaniel hashtag. Quite a few people asked me if I thought that the Morcombe family felt the support. I think they have. Nothing will ever take away the
