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

The Model and Me: Firefly

I’m no stranger to the tunic and leggings look as a jeans/knit alternative for autumn-winter. I recently featured a kimono-style tunic from Rasaleela, and today I’m featuring a shirt-style from Firefly. I personally love both shapes – variety being the spice of life and all. Firefly is an Australian label which is ethically produced by

The Model and Me: eb&ive

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE wearing black. It’s my go-to colour no matter what the time of year. Come winter, I favour it even more. I poo-poo those who say you can’t wear black because it makes you look older. Because, no it doesn’t. It may not be YOUR colour but please don’t put an

The Model and Me: Harlow

It was reported on last night’s news that Brisbane’s April temperatures were some of the hottest on record. And this week we’re staring down the barrel of another week of high 20s/early 30s temperatures. I’m calling ENOUGH. It’s May. Winter IS coming. Isn’t it? I’ve got a fab wardrobe ready to roll out when it

The Model and Me: Boom Shankar

I’ve been sharing my love for Noosa-based label, Boom Shankar, here for many years. Boom Shankar is 20 years young and grew from designer Dui (Katie) Cameron’s days living in India. Any one who visited the iconic Eumundi markets from the label’s inception, would recognise it. Many people still have those original purchases – clothes that

The Model and Me: wYse

My most favourite clothing pieces are ones that can be easily washed, require no ironing and look good wear after wear. I’ve long termed these style of clothing pieces lifestyle clothing. Clothes that just fit in your life. wYse is a label that you would have heard me talk about a lot in regards to

The Model and Me: Boho Bird

If I were to nominate one look that is my signature for cool autumn and mild winter days it would be this one. A loose boho-style top worn with skinny jeans. It’s a no-brainer outfit for me. The style of jeans just works and the top skims over the bits I’d like skimmed over around

The Model and Me: Rasaleela

I’ve become one of those people who endlessly talks about the weather. It’s got so bad (the weather and me talking about it) that I’m trying to ban myself from the subject. That’s all a bit difficult, I guess, when what we wear is so linked to what the weather is doing. What I’d love

The Model and Me: Binny

My love for the Australian label Binny is far from a state fashion secret. I first discovered the label via your imaginary TV friend and mine – Offspring’s Nina Proudman – and have been a card-carrying fan ever since. What I love about Binny’s designs is that they always surprise and delight in the details and

The Model and Me: Sacha Drake

If you’re a regular around here you’ll very much be aware of my love for Brisbane-based fashion label, Sacha Drake. I’ve been wearing Sacha for about 12 years now. Her designs are timeless. Her prints captivating. And lately it’s been her everyday style solutions that have had me excited. Remember last year the column drape

The Model and Me: Fabrik

It’s no secret that I cannot wait until Nina Proudman returns to our screens this year for the sixth season of Offspring. In anticipation I find myself channelling a little Nina style here and there. Last week it was this outfit, today it’s a cotton maxi dress that I just know Neens would add a

The Model and Me: Bird Keepers

THE look of summer is well and truly alive and turning heads for autumn-winter 2016. Yes, keep those shoulders at the ready Stylers. They are still very much in demand as the season changes. You’ll have them out in knitwear, silken tops and frocks like this one from Birdsnest label, Bird Keepers. The model Bird Keepers The

The Model and Me: Motto

Do you know my favourite style of clothing? Anything that is one step up from pyjamas, yet is a legitimate garment suitable for letting loose in public. I’ve featured many a garment here that fits that description and many of them have come from Australian label Motto. Each piece from this label is travel and

The Model and Me: Maiocchi

Brisbane-based designer Deanne Mayocchi of label Maiocchi always excites with her seasonal collections. With exclusive prints and her Australian-made designs, you know you’re wearing something special and buying a piece that will remain in your wardrobe for years to come. This season’s collection – Orient Excess – is inspired by Deanne’s love of traditional Oriental design,
