The Model and Me: Maiocchi

FEATURED The Model and Me Maiocchi AW14.jpg

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

Now, before I get into this week’s everyday style round up, if you haven’t already got dressed, I’d love you to consider wearing something red today. If you do so, post a photo here in the comments or on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #redfordaniel. It’s almost three years ago since I wrote this

Your style questions answered

Welcome to a new monthly post on Styling You – Your style questions answered. My aim with these posts is to answer some of the style questions that land in my inbox on a daily basis. I’m thinking that if one person has asked the question, there’s a fair chance that more would like to

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

Everyday Style outfits of the week

There was definitely something in the air over the past week – particularly last weekend. So many glam outfits coming through on the #everydaystyle Instagram feed, I almost had to call it NOT-everyday style. This whole challenge started as a request from a number of readers wanting to see what I wore every day. Not

Newsy bites and style insights

Everyday Cashmere uses two different sized models in its marketing

Good morning Stylers. It’s been some time between newsy bites and style insights posts but there have been a few interesting bits landing in my inbox of late so I thought I’d share them here. Uncovering The Brisbane Look Last week I was lucky enough to attend the premiere of Uncovering The Brisbane Look, a

How to update your wardrobe with AW14 fashion trends

FEATURED Westfield AW14 trends Punk blog.jpg.jpg

Sponsored by Westfield Hello March. I see you and recognise you for what you are. You tease us by being “officially” autumn but still offer up more than a glimpse back at summer too. It’s about this time that we start to get a bit twitchy with our wardrobes. All perfectly natural fashion behaviour. Our

The Model and Me: Mossee

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

Everyday style outfits of the week | week ending Feb 28

What a colour-packed week it’s been this week? I love it when style challenges merge and that’s what’s happened this week with Vanessa from Style and Shenanigans – the most colourful Melbourne woman I know – giving us a daily colour prompt to shake up us out of our wardrobe rut even further in her

How to get the Love Child look

FEATURED Get the Love Child look Joan.jpg.jpg

I feel like I’m cheating on Nina Proudman a little but I’ve fallen hard for Channel 9′s Love Child. Love Child is an Australian drama set in the 1960s. It centres around a girls’ home in Kings Cross. A place where young unwed mothers were sent by their parents to have their baby in secret,

11 ways to wear colour

Featured colour.jpg

It might surprise new readers to discover that up until a few years ago colour and I were not wardrobe friends. I LOVED my neutrals. Particularly black, white and stone (a more fancy schmancy name for beige, don’t you think?). And do you know what? That’s completely ok if that’s your current colour palette too.

The Model and Me: Elm Knitwear

FEATURED Elm Knitwear.jpg

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

Everyday style outfits of the week

The dressing and grooming conditions around these parts have been nothing short of diabolical this week. Humidity at a bazillion percent and 30 degrees at 8pm is not conducive to feeling at all stylish. Thank goodness for aircon and clothes that breathe. That is all I can say. Is anyone else looking forward to even

Teenage style: what to wear to university

FEATURED What to wear to uni

It’s been a year since I wrote this post about moving my son into residential college at uni. He survived his first year, discovered a new world of socialising and has been counting down the days until he returns in a week and a half. Miss SY? She’s following in his footsteps. And mine. I
