The Model and Me: Boho Bird

FEATURED Model and Me Boho Bird.jpg

My love for – and embracing of – ┬áthe boho style is something that has evolved since I started my own business and swapped a corporate-y wardrobe for a more casual one. Oh, and our fictitious friend Nina Proudman may have had something to do with me falling even more of a little more of

The Model and Me: Verily

If you’ve been reading Styling You for some time you would have seen me refer to the label Verily – many times. Perhaps you’ve even bought something from Leonie Macleod – the designer behind the label? Leonie is based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and I first met her a couple of years after interviewing her

The Model and Me: Maiocchi

I’m a very big supporter of Australian and Queensland designers. Maiocchi has long been on my fave list and it’s even more the case now that I live just minutes from one of its stores in Brisbane (incidentally Sydney-siders, Maiocchi just last week opened its first store in your city on Oxford St). I love

The Model and Me: Everyday Cashmere/Country Road

I do love it when the edge of a Queensland summer is shaved off … even if it’s ever so slightly. While we haven’t had cause to dust off our winter woolies just yet, it’s just a whole lot more pleasant getting dressed – and sleeping at night. Elsewhere in Australia, I know you’ve had

Go-to dresses are essential in any wardrobe. You know the kinds of frocks I’m talking about? The ones that could work at the office (or in a meeting) or for an occasion – a wedding, the races. The ones that make a perfect canvas for new or existing accessories. Remember when I featured this monochrome

The Model and Me: Elm Knitwear

Last week in Queensland we had one of the hottest and most humid weeks of the summer. Just getting dressed and going about my business was draining enough. Let alone trying to think about – and try on – new-season clothes. But the fashion industry marches on. And in other parts of Australia, the first

The Model and Me: Bohemian Traders

FEATURED The Model and Me Bohemian Traders

Can you remember the first time you heard of the trend bo-ho? Actor Siena Miller was its poster child in the early 2000s and despite me buying and wearing a very unflattering tiered peasant skirt, I was convinced this trend would be fleeting. That structure would return to fashion and I could forget attempting a

The Model and Me: Motto

FEATURED Model and Me Motto

I got particularly excited discovering the news that soft pants were an official fashion trend for autumn-winter 2014. What’s not to love about a soft pant, AKA fancy trackies? They always fit. And importantly they feel just as comfy on the couch as when out and about. The key to finding said pants that are

The Model and Me: Surafina

FEATURED The Model and Me Surafina 3

It’s hard to believe we’ve now been living in Brisbane for more than a month. Feels like five minutes. This week will be the first full week of being able to work school hours since the beginning of December. Up until now it has just felt like we were house sitting or on a holiday

The Model and Me: Elm

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of layering when it comes to giving an outfit a lift. The problem is that in summer that’s not something that comes easily as it can be too damn hot to even think of adding any extra layers. On these days I tend to layer with accessories.

The Model and Me: Lola Australia

The Model and Me Lola Australia

You know what excites me? A fully unpacked house, cold drinks on a summer’s afternoon, watching next season’s Downton Abbey courtesy of parents bringing store-bought DVD back from the UK (why oh why do Australian TV channels still treat us like idiots? Two words: Fast. Track) … and being introduced to an Australian fashion label

The Model and Me: Country Road

FEATURED Model and me Country Road

Oh hi there. How goes it in the real world? I’m in that limbo land that comes between packing up one life and unpacking to start another. We’re almost there. And I LOVE our new home. Mr SY spent yesterday building half of IKEA for my office/lady room and today I’ll fill those new furniture

The Model and Me: Harlow


Last week I hopped on a plane to Sydney for my agency’s Christmas party. It was a 24-hour turn-around scenario that you just do because it’s so damn fun to get together in person with the people who you work with – especially when we mostly talk via the interwebs. Someone also mentioned there would

The Model and Me: Bella Lido

FEATURED Bella Lido Model and Me

Still on the look out for an easy-to-wear outfit for Christmas Day or across the summer? I’ve found another for you. My girls – my soul sisters – got together last week to celebrate the year before everyone goes their separate way and does their Christmas thing with family and travel. There was no stipulation

The Model and Me: Sacha Drake Grecian maxi dress

You already know that I think Queensland-based designer Sacha Drake is all kinds of genius don’t you? If not, you may be new to Styling You, so I’ll give you a brief run down. Sacha designs frocks. And she gets women. Like REALLY gets women. She gets that we’re not all the same shape but
