Vydia X Novo | Summer Party Season

Besides the Spring Racing Carnival, Christmas HAS to be the best time of the year. There's just everything to love about party season - getting together, drinks and of course finally some summer weather.

Here are my must have party season picks from Novo's amazing current collection. From a night out for NYE to Christmas lunch - I'm loving these styles in classic colours like black, tan and nude.

And while we're on the topic of Christmas, just wanted to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you for your support of me, the blog and my styling all throughout this year. Hope you have a fun and safe Christmas and NY, can't wait to see you all again in 2016 for another crazy year x

Vydia X Novo | Flemington Forecast

Being the ultimate Melbournian, I can't go past the excitement and culture of the Spring Racing Carnival. Not only is November my fave time of the year (birthday month hello!) but the overall buzz of event and party season is enough to make anyone excited about being in Melbourne right now.

So now that it's finally that time of the year again, it's time to start prepping for the races and more importantly thinking about what to wear! Hopefully this is where I come in for you with my Flemington Forecast posts (thanks to everyone who loved last year's series here and here).
So of course we decided to do it again!

I'm so excited to bring to you all my latest work for Novo, styling together some of my favourite heels of the moment to complete any race day look, perfect if you're on the look out for something chic and of course a little out of the box for your look to Flemington this year.

Make sure you keep an eye out for my upcoming Flemington Forecast posts next week featuring all my outfit details...

Styling | Thurley Resort 15 Behind the Scenes


I loved being Behind the Scenes with the Thurley team recently at their latest shoot for Resort 15. You guys should all know by now how much of a huge supporter I am of Helen (Thurley's head designer) who has been my go-to fashion godmother for all my big events (yep, especially the races coming up!).

Editorial | Vydia X Once Was

Once Was (formerly known as Spencer Lacy) has undergone a complete rebrand and I couldn't be more happy with Belinda Glynn's (Once Was' head designer) new direction for the Melbourne based label. I'm so excited to team up with the amazing Once Was team for their latest collection, Linear, just in time for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. 

The collection is a celebration of women who use their creative power and artistic expressiveness, to create positive influence and inspire others to do the same. The Spring collection is inspired by natural elements of form and light captured in the essence of Spring. 

Make sure to catch the Once Was runway at MSFW on September 4th at 5 & 6pm (details here).

Styling | River Island Denim

One of my favourite and of course, most worn, pieces in my wardrobe would undoubtedly be my black denim jeans. If I'm wearing pants, 9/10 times you'll find me in black jeans and when I think about it, I doubt think there's anything in my wardrobe that I'd consider more of a staple. 

River Island's latest denim offering is all about finding the perfect pair with an amazing fit and I couldn't go past picking myself up a black pair of jeans. I've styled my Black Amelie Reform Superskinny Jeans (yes they are extremely super skinny, just how I love it!) in three ways below, a winter look that's all about layering, a night out/event look and of course a dressed down casual outfit, perfect for uni or a low key lunch.

Styling | Cotton On's Denim Collection - The Wanted


There is definitely no such thing as having too much denim in your wardrobe. Denim is always here to stay. I recently got my hands on Cotton On's latest denim collection The Wanted to pick my fave pieces from the collection and style for you all. The Wanted collection, with it's aptly named slogan Be Who You Want, is all about quality staple denim pieces - think denim shirts, skinny/boyfriend/flare jeans, and overalls paired back with simple classics like a white tee or chunky knit. The Be Who You Want campaign is about exactly that - versatile pieces and classic styles that let you embrace who you are and your own personal style.

Editorial | Asilio Spring 15 PRISM

If there's one Melbourne label that consistently gets better and better (an understatement if you ask me) with each collection - it's Asilio the label. I couldn't wait to style Cynthia's (Asilio's head designer) latest offering, a sophisticated collection of pieces perfect for dressing up and dressing down - perfect for my "casual meetings to chic party/event" lifestyle.

Chadstone Spend & Win Competition

It really doesn't get much better than taking an afternoon off to shop up a storm and take some much needed time off at one of my fave shopping centres, Chadstone the Fashion Capital. Every shopping trip comes with a mission and mine was to update my winter wardrobe - or in another words, buy some more black pieces...including an easy to wear cross body bag for everyday. Trust me, I'm not the only lucky one here - Chadstone are being amazing this month by giving away a $1000 wardrobe every day until Sunday July 12th. Shoppers who spend $150 or more between now and the 12th simply need to take their proof of purchase to centre management to enter the competition - good luck!

Editorial | Calvin Klein White Label Range


I’m so excited to share with you my recent shoot featuring Calvin Klein's latest White Label handbag offering. The range is all about the timeless classics; true to Calvin Klein’s minimal, clean and monochromatic style, and right up my alley of course. Think structured totes, compact clutches and my favourite the classic cross body

VYDIA x NOVO SHOES | Studio to Street

I'm a huge believer in investing in pieces (whether they break the bank or are a complete bargain) that can multitask and switch up your look or an outfit each time you wear it - pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down and can take you from work to play, or in my case - studio to street. Here are some of my favourite selects and wardrobe staples from Novo's current collection...

VYDIA x NOVO SHOES | A Day In Her Shoes

I'm so proud to have joined forces with Novo as their latest ambassador, and for a couple of reasons. 1. My shoe closest has never been fuller (yasss!) and 2. Novo's new arrivals are simply to die for. In this edit, I'll be showing you how I style my Novo shoes throughout the day - going from meetings, to the office, to lunch and out for dinner. These pieces are perfect for everyday and transcend time for a chic, polished look. 

Sportsluxe Errands
If you ever catch me running errands on Chapel St, I'm most likely in my 2XU tights and some form of sneaker! It's my staple look, with comfort being the key, so these slip ons in a subtle black texture are perfect. 

Worn here with Josh Goot Trench and 2XU Performance Tights...

VYDIA x NOVO SHOES | The Leather & Capsule Edit


I'm so so excited to bring to you all my collaboration and edit for Novo Shoes which I'll be featuring throughout the blog and insta over the next couple of months. This collaboration is all about celebrating Novo's latest and chicest designs, with everything that I picture being handpicked by yours truly! I've been so impressed with Novo's change of style direction - think more exclusive fabrics, capsule collections and chic, streamline designs, all incorporating Novo's signature day to night versatility. The perfect combo!

Day In The Life | High St Armadale Shopping Trip

Digital content and online shopping isn't going anywhere anytime soon (thank god!), but honestly - who doesn't LOVE a good day spent out shopping and brunching? All my Melb girls will agree that we seriously have some of the best centres and shopping strips around, and one of my faves has to be High St in Armadale.

Entrecôte Melbourne


Being born and bred in Melbourne, I'm all about embodying our cheeky food and lifestyle culture of not having to walk or drive too far to find somewhere amazing to eat and hang out. And as much as I love exploring on Sydney trips and just travelling in general - I'm secretly completely content with having Kettle Black, Crabapple Kitchen, and Pillar of Salt just around the corner.
