The Model and Me: Surafina

Boy oh boy did the heavens open up here yesterday afternoon. Did you manage to stay dry if they opened for you too? Luckily we didn’t have to be anywhere and it was like being given permission to hunker down and fire up the Netflix offerings. I love a slouchy Sunday – or any slochy

The Model and Me: Metalicus

It’s almost six years since I began Model and Me posts here on Styling You. They began by accident after I had been asked by a boutique to model for them in a Metalicus fashion parade. This boutique stocked and sold Metalicus to women of all ages, shapes and sizes so they wanted the label

The Model and Me: Read and Bell

Good morning Stylers. Hip, hip hooray, it’s my birthday. I know, I know, I feel sorry for me too. Mondays and birthdays don’t sound very celebratory, do they? Rest assured, I’ve done plenty of celebrating across the weekend. Why have just one day when you can have a festival, I say. As you know from

The Model and Me: White Label Noba

Many things get me excited about what I do here at Styling You. Connecting with you, my gorgeous readers, that’s a big one. Another big one is meeting and getting to know a bunch of fabulously talented independent designers creating and working in the Australian fashion industry. I first met White Label Noba’s Tracey Watkins

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
