How to dress like Nina Proudman

Do you ever wonder why we don’t see Nina Proudman actually go shopping? In stores or online? I know she’s not “real” but, wowzers, her wardrobe is something else. That kind of wardrobe doesn’t just happen by accident. It would require a strong sense of style and a strong affinity with certain boutiques and chain

Your style questions answered

This is the fourth post in a series that I started on the blog this year – Your style questions answered – to answer publicly just a few of the hundreds of style questions that land in my inbox each month (catch up with last month’s here). I try to respond to all emails but

The Model and Me: Harlow

Last time I looked – and I look quite regularly – every woman was and is real. It blows me away how size-ist the fashion industry can be. I’m not just talking about the way fashion is marketed via size 6-8 very tall models (ie a very small percentage of the population). I’m talking about

How to create a winter outfit

Everydaystyle - how to create a winter outfit by adding luxe textures

So this is winter. Mmmm. Not really where I live but there are hints of it. On Wednesday my feet were cold all day – a sure sign in this thyroidy old body that the seasons will finally turn. But like many of you I’m very much over my summer wardrobe and have long stopped

Last Friday a news crew from Channel Ten came to my office to talk to me about the popularity of Nina Proudman – her style and how so many of you show up here each week for the post-Offspring de-brief. I was on the Brisbane news last night. How crazy is that? Nina would have

Do you love it when Nina Proudman dresses up to go out – instead of to work or play? I do. It is a reminder that her wardrobe is not filled with only kimono jackets, embroidered tunics, jeans and boots. We get an insight into stepping-out Nina and I do like what I see. Remember

The Model and Me: Bella Lido

I was asked recently if I thought that printed pants would disappear from the fashion landscape any time soon. I pondered this question for all of three seconds and said NO. I could be wrong but anything that seems to have a level of comfort mixed in with an interesting fashion element seems to have

How to layer clothes for trans-seasonal days

How to layer for trans-seasonal weather #everydaystyle

If you’re like me, you’ve packed away your summer wardrobe but are tearing your hair out as autumn hasn’t got the memo re it’s time to cool down. And officially it’s winter on Sunday, so what’s with the ridiculously warm days? The thing is I’m bored. Bored with my summer wardrobe and highly impatient to

Do you know how much I love that I get to share my obsession with Offspring here on the blog every week – with you. Thank goodness you also share my obsession with all things Nina Proudman. Thank goodness. I’ll get to the de-brief about Nina’s main outfit and the storyline soon but first I want

Newsy bites and style insights

FEATURED Sizeable.jpg

It’s been too long between newsy bites posts so thought I’d better rectify that right now. Don’t hate me but as you’re reading this, I will be waking up at or leaving this magical place. More on that and what I’ve been up to soon. In the meantime, I’ve got some style insights to share.

The Model and Me: wYse lifestyle

FEATURED The Model and Me wYse AW14.jpg.jpg

I’m pretty sure I’ve shared this story before but I’ll share again. I first discovered the wYse lifestyle label via a photo of one of my relatives in g-string underwear. While this story sounds very much not G rated (pun very much intended!), it is. This particular relative was a model for wYse and her well-toned

How to wear prints

How to wear prints

My everyday style has had a fantastic boost this week. I don’t know about you but my wardrobe is in that limbo land between autumn and winter. The warm days mean that winter pieces are lying and hanging there unworn and unloved. We’ve supposedly moved on from summer but then we get a few 25

The Nina Proudman effect is alive and well. I was in Byron Bay last weekend and just about every fashion store I walked into was carrying the Nina-style vibe. Walking past the closed Tigerlily store on a Friday night and seeing last week’s red jacket in blue from the window was enough to send me back

The Model and Me: Sancerre

FEATURED Model and Me Sancerre.jpg

It’s been a while since I’ve featured Sancerre here on the blog. It’s a Melbourne-based clothing company that offers relaxed lifestyle pieces – many of which really suit a trans-seasonal wardrobe. There’s an emphasis on layering and effortless styling. A couple of years ago I wore and featured Sancerre’s basic band slip in white. If

Nina Proudman is BAAACCCKK. Quite frankly it’s been way too long between fresh Offspring fixes, hasn’t it? I’m still a little cranky that they killed off Patrick last season. I really wanted everything to be finally right in Nina’s world. But that doesn’t make for compelling drama, does it? And yes, this is where we do
