The Model and Me: Binny

FEATURED Binny

I have a lot to thank Offspring and Nina Proudman for. For starters many of you first found this blog while searching for something Nina Proudman-style related. For seconders, the show’s costume designers introduced me to a number of Australian labels I’d previously not known. Binny is one of those labels. Binny is a Victorian-based

I don’t know about where you live but here in Queensland, the summer switch as well and truly been flicked on. Even in Sydney on the weekend there was no hint of cooler days and nights. Everyone was out enjoying the sun – at the beach, along Oxford Street at Paddington and at the races by

With conflicting reports (here and here – you be the judge) as to whether Offspring will ever return to our screens, today’s Model and Me is an ode to Nina Proudman … because even if she never returns to our screens, her style will always have a place in my wardrobe. I’m far from a fully

It’s no secret around these parts that I love a kaftan. This wasn’t always the case but the silk kaftan has become my go-to summer dress-up option. There are a few reasons for this: 1. It gets mighty hot wear I live so having fancy clothes that are fitted and stick to your body is

Our trip to the Whitsundays gave me an early taste of the long summer ahead. The weather was still mild but the days were balmy and warm. We’ve already had some 29 degree days in Brisbane too so I know that the consistently warm weather is just around the corner. Many people have also been

The Movie Star and Me: Blue Illusion Juliette Binoche

FEATURED The Movie Star and Me

Sponsored by Blue Illusion  I’ve got used to this Model and Me business on a Monday but when Blue Illusion asked me to consider showcasing one of the frocks its ambassador and actress Juliette Binoche is wearing in its new-season catalogue, I was a little hesitant. I mean. JULIETTE BINOCHE. She’s beautiful, elegant and the

I’ve had reason to pull together some quick evening outfits of late. I know: First World Problem. I love colour like the next person but when it comes to a no-fuss, no-fail, no-brainer evening outfit, I’ll reach for black on any occasion. I don’t find black boring it at all. I find it an instant solution

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

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

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.

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

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 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

The Model and Me: Motto

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

A new fashion season is a dawning. I know it never makes any sense. It’s something that happens twice a year so you’d think I’d be used to it by now but coming off a week when we experienced some of the coldest temperatures in more than 100 years it really does make it tricky
