Outfit Of The Day 01.10.13



A versatile cape will transform your trans-seasonal wardrobe! I've been loving this number from Toi Et Moi Sydney, a label I've been sporting quite a lot these days (the Montrer skinnies have been on repeat for days). I decided to stick with the black on black (of course), and paired my gorgeous cape with my Current/Elliot cropped denim and Wittner perforated peep-toe heels. The cape is definitely a highlight statement piece, so keeping the rest minimal was key...

Hugo Boss Collins St Re-Launch



Hugo Boss' iconic Melbourne Flagship store on Collins St has recently undergone a makeover and I was lucky enough to be invited along to an intimate celebration of the reopening. The focus of the night was also on the much-anticpated launch of the spring racing season and to celebrate, Hugo Boss have once again teamed up with amazing milliner Louise Macdonald to produce a millinery range exclusive to Hugo Boss stores. I'm loving the selection of dresses - classic, conservative, and beautiful shapes and textures - perfect for spring racing!

Outfit Of The Day 23.09.13


I've been obsessed with these leopard print Supras ever since I laid eyes on them on the Urban Outfitters website. But like all things (and knowing my luck!), they were out of stock! So of course I managed to pull out some detective skills I didn't even know I had and managed to get my hands on a pair from Aus Supra HQ. And as superficial as it sounds, I couldn't have been more excited after my long search! I don't joke about sneakers.

So what better look to pull off with my new Supras than a typical sports luxe inspired outfit. I'm loving this LIFEwithBIRD black shift dress with sheer panel detailing. I've been all about the midi/below the knee length for skirts and dresses lately, and love the casual look when paired with simple sandals. Perfect for the warmer days! However, since this is Melbourne, my fave Indiana by Freda leather jacket needed to be on hand just in case the weather turned on us. Which it eventually did of course...

Toni & Guy Georges Pamper Session


One of my go-to hairdressers, Toni & Guy Georges (on Little Collins St), was host to an amazing pamper session and evening dedicated to all trends heading into Spring/Summer and especially, the races! Salon owner, Jo Smith (who I recently got my last cut from, love her!) took us through key hair style and colour trends which provided some great and much needed inspiration for this year's racing carnivals. I loved Jo's take on the faux bob (pictured far right) and also a bohemian-inspired/messy fishtail braided bun (pictured second to the left). The girls from Napoleon then talked us through some of the upcoming makeup looks we'll be seeing. Luxe skin, couture contours, feline eyeiner, big lashes and modern bold lips were all the main focus.
