GRIDS

Posted on September 14th, 2014

Josh Goot top and skirt, MLM mules, Givenchy bag

I haven't had to pack so many looks for a trip before but I'm VERY glad I stopped by the Josh Goot studio before flying to New York. Nothing makes me happier than representing Australian labels overseas, and more so when they're this amazing. I cannot wait for this top to be available in store, as I now need it in both black and white!

It feels like forever and a day since shooting looks with Zanita, but its always such pleasure.

WHY SLIDES ARE THE SHOE OF CHOICE THIS SEASON

Posted on September 8th, 2014

Dion Lee top, Macgraw skirt, Tony Bianco slides, Givenchy bag

Hands down the favourite thing about this fashion season is that heels are optional and even more so, flats are more commonly the shoe of choice. I know you may not opt for this look every occasion, but when you have to walk 5 blocks from the subway to get to a show and your bag isn't big enough to store a change of shoes, this actually feels like the best thing, EVER.

NAVY BLAZER + BOYFRIEND JEANS

Posted on September 7th, 2014

Zimmermann Blazer, J Brand jeans, Isabel Marant heels, Saint Laurent bag, LNA tee

I think a navy blazer is meant for denim. The structured shape is perfectly paired with relaxed boyfriend jeans, especially when its the longer lined style like this one.

A little bit of fancy hardware also helps to make this look feel a lot more luxe!

CROPPED PANTS AND MULES

Posted on September 5th, 2014

Camilla and Marc top (resort collection), Elizabeth and James cropped pants, Givenchy buckle mules and bag

Having a New York moment trying to look graceful while not getting hit by cars. classic.

First day into New York fashion week, 24 hours into my trip and i'm feeling good! I attended both the BCBGMAXAZRIA show as well as Tome this afternoon, where I wore this oufit. I think Tome is setting itself into being one of my upcoming favourite designers. I lusted after their white shirt with the open/tie back for too long earlier this year and ended up missing my chance of owning one as they sold out. I literally think I've even dreamt of hunting one down.

The show was full of beautifully layered pieces of lace and twists. But my favourite was a pleated silk skirt that flared out at the bottom and created the most incredibly fluid movement. I love when designers play with construction and fabrics and deliver something unexpected. Thats what we're here for.

PS. Please excuse the bandage on my ankle. Worked out quite quickly that glass and skin don't got well together after having to get a few stitches recently (gross!).

WHITE ON WHITE

Posted on September 3rd, 2014

Josh Goot shirt, Asos pants

A slightly different outfit post to normal, but this kinda feels more me. I'm all about being relaxed, real and undone.

I'm flying off to NYC today for fashion week and I want to keep the above in mind. After a 24 hour flight I'm not going to feel like my usual self, but as long as I'm relaxed and real I'll get through the craziness of whats to come. Eyedrops will also help.

NORMCORE

Posted on September 1st, 2014

Dejuba pants, Seed t-shirt, Witchery denim jacket, Nike runners

Heard the phrase 'Normcore' being thrown around of late but you're left utterly confused? You're not alone. Apparently its the combination of 'normal' and 'hardcore'. I don't really get the hardcore part, but the normal part I get. Basically its the new phrase for dressing in casual wear and everyday items that aren't trend driven. Or how I like to put it, the trend thats not a trend, thats now trending.

Want to be part of it? Well most likely you already are. But if in doubt just combine all your 'off duty' pieces in the one look. The good thing is you'll be very comfortable!

This is one of my two trends for Westfield Carindale's 'Most Hunted' campaign that I think you'll be keen beans for this season! All items are available right now in Westfield Carindale. And the hunt begins…

MY OASIS

Posted on August 28th, 2014

Oasis jeans, top and blazer*, Isabel Marant heels, Givenchy bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses

Grey skinny jeans, a white tee and a blazer seems like my uniform of choice. Nothing better than knowing you can rely on a certain look and feel confident that you look put together, when you feel anything but. A jam packed week of meetings, events, filming and prepping for my upcoming trip to New York and London fashion weeks is starting to take its toll, and its nice to have my uniform to fall back on when everything else feels so chaotic.
