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!

NYFW: Thom Browne Spring 2015


All Images From Style.com

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.

Welcome to Paradise: Fitzroy Island








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.

The Spring 2015 Alexander Wang show was a return to the Sporty Sexy, downtown look that his “it” girl posse love so much. Some pieces actually resembled trainers, in flyknit fabrics, while one white tennis dress in, what seemed to be, perforated leather  was laced up at the neck.

High-waisted trousers paired with sexy crop tops, a look pioneered by Wang, and close to the body dresses were a world away from the, almost, asexual creature presented at the FW14 show.

New York Fashion Week: Altuzarra Spring 2015

Spring 2015 at Altuzarra seemed to be an ode to all things Americana. Light and floaty dresses in pastel gingham prints were a fashionable mix between Lolita and Little House on the Prairie. There were sexy carmel hued, suede shirts, stolen straight from a cowboy’s closet, buttoned down to the waist and paired with a slit to the thigh stripey skirt. One of my favourite pieces was the cut-out leather skirt, with some fifties black granny pants, maintaining what was left of the model’s modesty.

What could have been an overly kitsch look at a tired Summer trend,  was given new life when injected with the quintessential Joseph Altuzarra sexiness, making it a fun yet modern collection.
