STYLE: Top; L’academie via Revolve. Jeans; GRLFRND via Revolve. Bag; Avalina Leather.
COMMENT: Key staples are what I am all about at the moment. A good pair (well, Nanna might not consider them ‘good’) of on-trend ripped black jeans will go with any top in your wardrobe. Ok, you might not be able to wear them to the office, but you can easily dress them up or down for pretty much every other occasion. With this particular pair I’ve been wearing this military style top to death. I find it’s casual enough for daytime activities, yet the gold hardware and loose fit make it classy enough to wear to night events as well. Basically, I’m lazy, and the less outfit changes in a day the better if you ask me!

STYLE: Jacket; Grlfrnd via Revolve. Shorts; Lovers + Friends via Revolve. Heels; ChloƩ.

COMMENT: I’m not ashamed to confess that I’m into the 90’s the way my dad is into the 60’s. He listens to The Rolling Stones, I listen to Guns N’ Roses. On repeat. Constantly. Naturally I have become obbsessed with my new 90’s denim jacket. I’ve had a few in my time and was naive enough to ditch my previous denim edition that my husband gave me for my 18th. I didn’t have the foresight to believe I would be wearing denim jackets in the future- live and learn people! These days I’m extra picky with my wardrobe choices, especially the piece’s fit. This cropped jacket with frayed edges is my idea of denim heaven. Actually, I’m currently wearing it whilst writing this onboard my flight home from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Now, call me crazy, but I’m fairly certain the people seated in the rows surrounding me are checking out my jacket. Well, that or my screaming infant. One thing is for sure, I won’t be ditching my denim this time around!

COMMENT: Monday was magically manic. We hit Carriageworks bright and early, ready for a mammoth day of resort collections from a number of Australia’s biggest designers. Ginger & Smart opened with incredible wide-brimmed floppy hats and a range filled with luxuriously textured prints. Yeojin Bae, celebrating her 10 year anniversary, sent a number of lust-worthy statement pieces down the runway- in particular the sheer lace dresses in vivid hues. Colour blocking continues as a definite trend as we look towards the warmer months ahead (ignoring the fact we still have the entire winter season to survive first!). Bella Hadid flew in from Cannes exclusively to walk for Misha and she definitely caused a sensation. The place was packed from pillar to post but we scored seats close enough to confirm that she is literally sensational. This Melbourne brand debuted a new premium high-end capsule collection but it’s safe to say the majority of the crowd were there exclusively for Bella. Monday came to a close with Zhivago who had sequins, dancers, and sequined-dancers all hitting the runway-turned-stage. Based on the film ‘Death Becomes Her’, the notion of self-obsession was portrayed front centre. Zhivago aimed to cause controversy and it certainly was an entertaining way to conclude the day.

DFO Insider Launch - Seed

COMMENT: Last Wednesday night my handsome plus one and I were lucky enough to attend the launch of the DFO Insider membership program in the new basement precinct at DFO South Wharf. The team from DFO had done an amazing job at turning the area into a top notch event space and the party was packed with many recognisable faces. I used the opportunity to check out the deals at Mimco, Furla, Sass & Bide, Morrison and Seed – managing to grab some absolute bargains such as this Seed one piece for 70% off it’s original price. To become a member and access these offers and events, just head here to sign up.

STYLE: Top; Ellery. Jeans; GRLFRND from Revolve. Sneakers; Dept of Finery. Necktie; Lovisa.

COMMENT: If you’re anything like us, you’d be happy with an entire wardrobe of just Ellery. Everything Ellery. If you’re anything like us, you might also need to remortgage your house to achieve. When we heard about the Ellery sale touring the country, we decided to make it count. I went for this beautiful black number with the Ellery-famous flare sleeve because it’s versatile (and I plan to live in it).
