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

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

The Model and Me 2015 favourites

The Model and Me posts here on Styling You are some of the most popular on this blog. In this final Model and Me segment for 2015, I thought I’d look back on the top 10 most popular Model and Me posts on the blog. These are the posts that were viewed the most by

The Model and Me: Motto

We’re at the pointy end of 2015. It’s parties and catch-ups a-go-go. In between, there’s Christmas shopping to finish/start, festive menu planning and hunting and gathering to happen and a touch of wardrobe management thrown in for good measure. I shared ideas last week about what to wear on Christmas Day and later this week I’ll be sharing

The Model and Me: Rasaleela

The power of the cotton frock when the heat is on cannot be underestimated. They are cool, comfortable and keep you looking stylish when the weather threatens to undermine all that. One of the best collections of summer cotton frocks can be found at Rasaleela Clothing. Rasaleela Clothing was started in 2002 by Trish Louey

The Model and Me: Fabrik

I do love coming across independent fashion labels that are offering fabulous alternatives for women looking for something a little different in their wardrobe mix. I love even more bringing those finds to you. The latest discovery is the label Fabrik. Fabrik is the brainchild of Sarah Hardie. Sarah previously worked alongside the amazing Lee Matthews

The Model and Me: Firefly

Can we talk about how hot it was in so many part of Australia at the end of last week and across the weekend? It was the kind of weather that required cool and comfortable clothing as a matter of wardrobe survival. Saturday was particularly hot here in Brisbane and I trotted out this cotton

The Model and Me: Lola Australia

Five years ago when I first started posting Model and Me blog posts here on Styling You, the aim was to show that a garment you might have seen on a model could work on a shorter, non-size-6 woman. It wasn’t to show that I looked better than the model. It was to show an

Melbourne Cup is done and dusted and that means that the party season has officially started. I’ve previously shared my 11 tips for how style your way through the season to Christmas Day. At the time I was heading into a very busy October. Now it’s November, the calendar looks socially similar, ie crazy fun.

The Model and Me: Read and Bell

I’ve got a serious problem this fashion season. Well, not world-peace serious. No, I’ve got a problem with my inability to turn away from any piece of clothing in a blue hue. In my defence, there is a lot of blue around this season. And, for me, it says – no, screams – summer. It’s

The Model and Me: Mela Purdie

The clothes that survive my bi-annual wardrobe edit are the ones that continue to make me feel fabulous when I wear them. AND they’re the clothes that still look as good as the day they first set up residence in my walk-in. I’ve long talked up Australian label Mela Purdie. I’ve got a Mela Purdie piece that

The Model and Me: Bella Lido

It seems that most places in Australia have had an early taste of the summer ahead. Scrolling through the #everydaystyle feed on Instagram last week showed that my southern style sisters were indeed enjoying some balmy spring conditions. Here in Queensland the balmy meter has been switched on and my seasonal default mode of dressing
