I’m still in outfit planning mode as to what I’ll wear Christmas Day (and any of the other Christmas-type gatherings leading up to the day). I talked in this post how I’m not afraid to err on the side of naff-ness and embrace the colours of the season and I stand by that. So much

If you have curves and are size 12-24 then finding a pair of jeans can be a challenge. I very much like the white ripped ones from Embody Denim I featured a couple of weeks ago. I rejoiced when Blue Illusion brought out its shape denim range earlier this year. And I’m a card-carrying member

Can I just tell you just how refreshing it was to fly south these past few days and get a taste of weather that did not bring with it a gazillion percent humidity? On Thursday I wore a jacket and jeans ALL day and did not once perspire. I may have even shivered at a

I know that many are scared of wearing white. I was reminded of that with my post last week about finding the perfect white tee. Well, brace yourself Stylers because I’ve gone one step further and pulled on not just a white tee … but white PANTS. The Napisan has been stocked up on and I’m

Can we pause for a moment to think about the heat that most of us have experienced over the past few days somewhere across this wide land. Melbourne and Adelaide, you copped it first, then Sydney and for my fellow south-east Queenslanders, we didn’t need a gathering of world leaders to produce hot air. No,

The Movie Star and Me: Blue Illusion

Sponsored by Blue Illusion I’m so excited to bring you a new Movie Star and Me post with Blue Illusion. I’ve got a bit more accustomed to seeing the face of Blue Illusion – French actor Juliette Binoche – in the same clothes of me (you can catch up here) but I still wondered if I could

How was your weekend? I hope you got a chance to relax. I most certainly did. I did a little spring organisation at home and a lot of just hanging out with my family. I do miss those simple things when I’m travelling. Coming home is about re-grouping and just being. And I don’t mind

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

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
