How to dress like Nina Proudman

offspring 5

This week I was lucky enough to get 15 minutes on the phone with the two creative people behind the costuming on Offspring. I spoke to Michael Chisholm and Zed Dragojlovich last year (you can catch up here) but I was keen to catch up with them again this year with some burning questions about Nina’s wardrobe for

The designers behind label Surafina speak to my need to dress like it’s winter but not swelter because I live in Queensland. It helps that they are based in Queensland. It helps a lot. They understand that we can have super chilly nights and mornings and then glorious sunny days that require us to un-layer

how to make an outfit look better | real-women style inspiration #everydaystyle

Can you believe that #everydaystyle is more than six months old? I can’t. What started as a reader request to see more of what I wore every day – not just for special occasions or for blog posts – evolved into a personal challenge for me. I might blog and advise people about fashion and

Let’s talk about Nina Proudman and her style this season. I know we do just that every Thursday around here but I want to talk specifically about the overall style she’s projecting this season. There are a few comments on last week’s post from people who think her style has gone a bit off track, that

The Model and Me: Firefly Clothing

It’s that crazy point in the fashion season where it’s actually turned to winter weather but the stores are in sale mode and in a matter of weeks they’ll be convincing us that spring is a thing. Urrgghhh. It’s all just crazy. Where does it leave us? The fashion consumer? Confused at worst. Accepting at

What wear for winter weekend casual

What to wear weekend casual #everydaystyle

Last week we looked to the real women of #everydaystyle for some inspiration on what to wear to the office. This week we’re all about the casual. For me, most days call for a casual outfit. I work from home. There’s usually a school and post office run involved. Occasionally there is a meeting or

You know how much I love a pair of printed pants, don’t you? Well it seems that this trend is also appealing to Nina-I-prefer-skinny-jeans-Proudman. Nina Proudman style Her second outfit on the show last night featured a pair of printed silk pants from French label Mes Demoiselles (for Australian stockists contact distributors Sharrock), worked back with

Do you know which are my fave celebrity paparazzi photos? The ones where someone beautiful and famous has just stepped off a plane looking like they’ve just been on a three-day-health retreat, not a long-haul flight. Yes, sitting (or lying down) up the pointy end of the plane certainly does help in these circumstances. Good

I do love wearing jeans and long pants in winter and I’ll freely admit that this is easily my fallback outfit option. But the frock girl in me is never too far away. Given that I work from home so don’t need to do an office-type frock all that often, it’s more a tunic style

Everyday Style | What to wear to the office in winter

It’s been almost six years since I worked in an office that wasn’t part of my home. The closest I come to imitating office wear now is if I’m going to a meeting, a breakfast or lunch networking event or a speaking engagement – like this outfit I wore when I recently lectured to journalism

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

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

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

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
