Being the proud South Australian that I am, I was wrapped when I heard that C/MEO COLLECTIVE was showing at fashion week, and what the team delivered was simply gorgeous. I was definitely feeling some Dion Lee and Zimmermann vibes in some of the pieces, but I really loved the white jackets paired with the neck scarves in particular.
Oh this Georgia Alice shirting!! I'm ridiculously in love and obsessed with the layering of this black crop as well. One of the main things that I'm trying to do to make the most out of my wardrobe right now is to start paring my winter and summer layers together, and the styling of this collection is giving me so much inspiration!
I've got to say the Dion Lee Resort Collection has got to be one of the highlights for me, not that I was actually there in person but oh my goodness these off the shoulder tops. As soon as the runway pictures came flooding through my Instagram feed I just fell in love and knew I was going to have to make them mine. For me, this is what is Australian fashion about, a mix of high quality fabrics, architectural designs and clever tailoring that still have a relaxed feel to them, and that is exactly what Dion Lee delivered.
Drama, femininity and technical shaping pared with Ryan Storer handcuffs and diamond ball gags.. The Toni Maticevski show was the perfect way to start off this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with a bang! I love that Maticevski switched it up this year to something a little more provocative compared to last year’s dreamy colour palette and designs.
Maybe this isn't a traditional 70s outfit.. my mum tells me "no one wore skirts over pants", but hey, I thought it might be fun to play with some layers for Autumn. I love the combination of the sheer panels and tassels on the Alice McCall top, the suede of the skirt and the dramatic flare of the Georgia Alice pants - left me feeling pretty groovy.
Monday is Adelaide Cup and I can't wait to check out the Yellowglen Terrace at The Starting Gate Precinct. Yellowglen Terrace is bringing The Hamptons to Morphettville Racecourse featuring a selfie hub with custom GIFs, an elevated viewing platform for sweeping views of the track and a range of sparkling drinks, including the new Yellow single serve mini bottles designed by Samantha Wills.. woo hoo!
Last week I received an email blast from one of my favourite shoe brands, Tony Bianco, featuring the most glorious piece of footwear, which I immediately sent a snapchat of to everyone (as you do). But after a couple of minutes of lusting after these boots, a little thought ran through my head, the same way it always does whenever I see something I love.. can I even pull these off? And of course the answer was no. That's right, the thigh high boot is one of those trends I love that just don't love me back *sadface*
