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,

The Model and Me: Bohemian Traders denim

This blogging world is a pretty special one. Not only has it allowed me to *meet* you but it’s also given me the opportunity to meet some incredible men and women, each with a different voice and each forging a different pathway with their blogging-based businesses. One such voice is Emily Berlach. Emily is a

The Model and Me: Belle Bird

It’s a new fashion season here on the blog. That won’t mean you’ll see me trotting out winter clothes for my #everydaystyle posts on Instagram but it does mean that these Model and Me posts will take on a different feel as (in fashion land) we leave summer behind. As I mentioned in this post,

The Model and Me: Sissy

It’s not unusual for me to be seen on #everydaystyle wearing a long-sleeve top or shirt in summer. If I’m out and about, that top is a part of my sun-protection arsenal. Sunscreen is always on but extra insurance for shoulders and arms is always helpful for this fair-skinned person. I don’t work up a sweat

The Model and Me: Surafina

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the little black dress. Even in summer. Effortlessly chic goals in one garment. But I know that many of you do not carry the same cheerleading pom poms I do for black. I get it. You may not like it so much against your skin tone. (BTW

The Model and Me: Bohemian Traders

Welcome to the first Model and Me post for 2016. If you’re new around here, then let me talk you through how the Model and Me concept got started. Way back in 2010, I was asked to be a model for a local boutique hosting a Metalicus fashion parade and showing. The reason I loved
