WHITE SHIRT, LEATHER PANTS

Posted on September 22nd, 2014

A white button up shirt and leather pants are two wardrobe essentials every woman should own. They are also two pieces that usually take a while to source the perfect style.

Button up shirts all seem the same on the surface but they are also very different. Do you want pockets? two or one? None? What kind of collar are you after? Am I going to button all the way up or only half? Soft cotton or crisp? visible or hidden buttons? Fitted or non fitted? Plain or textured? Am I going to want to tuck it in or leave out?

And leather pants? thats a whole other ball game between simply choosing between pants and leggings…

Dont freak out on me. To help you out i've done some research into what I think the best styles are at the moment. I'm good like that. I've also been up since 3am due to extended jet lag and an overworking brain, so I had some spare time on my hands.

FLARED DENIM

I know what you're thinking, this is hard look to pull off. However there is this amazing thing that flares do, in that they stretch you out and make your legs look at least two sizes smaller and longer than ever before. And quite frankly, if a pair of pants can do this then I'm going to give them a try!

My hot tip is unless you're fully committing to this 70's look, find a top or blazer thats longer lined so it sides lower than the waist of the pants. This will balance out the proportions so your not all legs with a tiny body.
Also, the darker the denim the easier and more flattering this will be. For beginnings try a dark indigo, charcoal or black.

WOOL DRESS

Posted on September 19th, 2014

Isabel Marant dress and belt, Isabel Marant heels

Freshly back in Sydney from my New York and London trip and have fallen completely under the weather. Sipping on ginger and lemon tea and making promises to my body that I am going to look after it more. I new this would happen of course. Whenever I'm consistently working without rest my body eventually lets me know its not cool with it! Add in a couple of 24 hr flights and guess what, things start to shutting down pretty quickly!

Putting that aside and focusing on my interesting things, this Isabel Marant wool dress has become a favourite of mine during my travels and attending meetings in London and in the last few weeks of our Australian winter. Its warm enough to keep the core body at the right temp while letting your arms see the light of day. Its also one of the most flattering shapes on me, especially when worn with a belt.

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

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

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

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!).

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.
