I’m not ashamed to admit it … the nostalgia for all things Nina Proudman and Offspring usually kicks in about now. And it kicks in hard. It’s about this time of year that the preview ads for a new series would kick in.
I loved the relatable yet quirky storylines, I was #TeamPatrick all the way but the excitement around the evolution of Nina’s style, thanks to its costume designers was always the number one reason I’d study each episode each season.
I discovered so many Australian labels through Offspring, sharing them with you and, in turn, helping those labels get new fans.
One of those labels was Catherine Murphy. The Catherine Murphy maxi dress Nina wore in the final season had me later that year adding a top to cart and earlier this year I purchased a dress from this Melbourne-based, Australian-made independent.
For this Model and Me post, I’m featuring a stunning shirt from the Catherine Murphy autumn-winter 2019 collection that’s epitomises the detail and quality of this label.
Catherine Murphy Tessa shirt in black | Styling You the Label Jude dark-wash denim jeans
This is an exclusive Catherine Murphy print. It’s a beautifully busy Indian-inspired floral/botanical print that doesn’t overwhelm because of its black base.
The cotton is silk-like on the skin and the detailing of cotton ribbon trim and shell buttons takes this piece next level – such a Catherine Murphy trademark.
The sleeves finish longer than shown on the model but can be pushed up to suit any look. It’s a relaxed shape through the mid-section, which works just as well worn out (contrasted with a skinny or slim pant) or tucked in to a high-waist/wide-legged or cropped pant.
Add a loose trench and boots to complete a look that would make Nina proud.
So, tell me, are you still missing Nina? Love a floral “nice top”?
