DRESS | CUE

BAG | PRIMARK/PENNYS

EARRINGS | 1940’S VINTAGE (L.A.)

SUNGLASSES | MINK PINK

This look is inspired by Audrey Hepburn à la Breakfast at Tiffanys. I found this dress, 70% off, when I first started working at CUE. I had already spotted it on the website and fell in love with its classic design and quirky cape feature at the back. Paired with my cat-eye sunglasses, vintage sparkly earrings and red lips I felt every inch the starlet! I love that I get to dress up for work at CUE. They have beautiful clothes and the best part is that most of it is made in Australia, which I really love!

What do you think of this look?

Everybody is talking about: Alexander Wang for H&M

Everybody is talking about Alexander Wang’s collection for H&M, set for release around the world on the 6th of November.

Quintessentially Wang, it is a collection of heavily sports/street influenced clothing, comprising of his signature body-hugging dresses , foam cropped sweaters, bandaged bras, parkas and even a pair of black leather boxing gloves. But don’t get it twisted, this collection is not made for the gym. Alexander Wang admitted, “I don’t do sports, I only wear sports clothing.” He went on to explain, “The collection should be titled ‘Sports At Night,'” said Wang. “I thought of this idea of when you’re out dancing, or when you’re out running around at night, you sweat as well. You don’t only sweat in the gym, or when you’re playing sports…I love the idea that these garments could perform in other environments.”
Seemingly transfixed with idea of sweat, some of the Italian-made knit tee dresses have designs that actually become more visible when you sweat!

What I love the most about this collaboration (and dare I say it is my favourite designer collaboration with H&M) is it’s faithfulness to the brand. It has all the markings of a high-end Wang collection, but without the hefty price tag. There doesn’t seem to have been any sacrifices made when it came to the design or production.

This collection sure to put Wang on the map for all those high-street consumers, who may not be familiar with the “It” girl’s favourite designer. The Wang look has always been accessible and now it is even more attainable with this mega partnership. Sure to sell-out in minutes (seconds even), there is no doubt that it will get you working up a sweat!

One of my favourite discoveries since living up here in Queensland, is the lovely Port Douglas. This quaint little town is a perfect mix of old world Australia and modern elegance with some fantastic restaurants to boot. Lunch overlooking the Marina is the best way to spend a warm afternoon and a great excuse to dress up!

Thom Browne’s Spring 2015 collection was a first class winner and had me dreaming of a day at the races. Show-stopping pastels, first class prints and awarding winning silouhettes had me inspired for a day at the Melbourne Cup or Galway Races. A beautiful mix of Lady Gaga’s eccentricity and Grace Kelly elegance, this collection was definitely a front-runner for Best in Show.

Here are a few holiday snaps of my weekend away in Fitzroy Island with Lorenzo, a couple of weeks ago. Since we are in Queensland we have the benefit of having the Great Barrier Reef right on our doorstep, with Fitzroy Island only a 40 minute ferry ride from Cairns. Although we didn’t have time to make it out to the reef, the island itself had some fantastic snorkelling spots.

We stayed at the resort’s only, yet beautiful, hotel.

Should you be heading to Fitzroy, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email for any tips or advice.

I have always wanted to visit a Rodeo and see some real live Cowboys, so when we heard that there was going to be a Rodeo at the near by Mareeba, Lorenzo and I jumped at the chance to go. So we grabbed a hot dog and went to watch some brave Cowboys ride some bulls! Most of the locals were dressed the part in Cowboy boots, Cowboy hats and gingham shirts, which added to the atmosphere.
