LOOK OF THE WEEK / AUTUMN RED

May 16, 2015

Sydney has been bathing in sunshine lately and even though the nights are close to freezing ,the days have been gorgeously mild. Which suits me perfectly because there is a lot of desperate tan preservation going on at the moment. I'd like to say that I can go pale and interesting, but in reality, my Croatian olive skin just kind of goes yellow in the winter, which is neither english rose pretty nor in any way vampire interesting, in fact it's more jaundice than anything. Ofcourse, being sun kissed also makes you look a bit healthier, which is always a bonus when you are sampling natural wine at Icebergs the night before a shoot. Not that that's what happened here (ahem)!

Anyway, I am bringing back the Look of the day section because I feel like there is so many outfits I wear that my readers only really get a one dimensional look at through Instagram - this way I can show you all the details in more pictures. This particular look is perfectly suited to leisurely weekend lunches while staying 70s inspired...

I love the timelessness of my Sportsmax shirtdress and it's gorgeous reddish orange hue. The coat, by Viktoria + Woods is light, yet warm and enveloping in a cocoon sort of way. It double ups as a blanket, cape or my cat Tiger's favorite place to sleep (whether or not I am in it). My sunglasses are reflective Miu Mius, my bracelets are Petite Grand and my shoes and bag are from Coach

DERBY DAY '13

Derby Day is my favourite day on the racing calendar. The black & white palette , the fresh , excited faces and the rose covered Flemington raceway are always such a spring treat. It is also a fun way to have a ball with friends, drink a little bit too much champagne and have a […]
