Don’t feel blue about the change of seasons. Try on this Zjoosh Juliette dress in pale blue instead. Just add a jacket and ankle boots if the weather is on the cool side and you’re good to smile your way from autumn to early winter.

If you’re not familiar with Zjoosh, this Australian brand started as an accessories label before branching out into homewares and clothing. 

Last year I jumped online and bought two Zjoosh shirts after seeing them on @mazlifestyle – I loved the fabric and shape for it’s ability to bring a little “drama” to the everyday.

There’s currently a “buy one; get second item at half price” offer running on Zjoosh, so head on over and check out the full range after you’ve checked out this dress.

I absolutely love the detailing and the “drama” of this design. The focus is all around the face, with pleats, ladder detailing and flutter sleeves that have me wistfully remembering a dress my mum sewed for me in the 1970s. The tiers in this dress fall in just the right places to midi length on me. 

The fabric is 100% linen and feels amazing on. When I photographed this dress it was very much warm enough to wear on its own. As it cools down, I’ll add a tan blazer and boots or a denim jacket and sneakers to take this look into autumn and early winter.

About the Model and Me concept

If you’re new to Styling You, my Model and Me posts are in their 11th year. I know, I can’t believe it either.

I started them because so many of my then personal styling clients (I stopped seeing clients in 2012) could not imagine themselves in the clothes they saw on models in campaign images in store, in magazines or online. This is pre-Instagram. Just. And definitely pre-brands showcasing their garments on more than just the traditional model size. 

I wanted to offer a different visual perspective from what was visible to the fashion consumer. It’s not a better visual perspective. It’s just a DIFFERENT one. I took that six steps further in 2019 when I started my own label, choosing to invest in photographing all our garments on each size that we sell. 

The Model and Me posts have continued – they are designed to help you understand your size in a garment  but also to support and champion fellow independent fashion labels I love.

*My measurements: I usually wear size 12/14 depending on the shape of the garment. I’m 166cm tall. My bra size is 16C (104cm); waist 91cm; hip 109cm.
