Style It. Ways To Wear Velvet

Much to my delight, it seems as though ‘90s fashion is having a bit of a style revival with velvet making a comeback. I’ve always had a a soft spot for it (see what I did there!?...), and I’m happy to report that its second lease of life has a much sleeker twist than the previous decade. From bikinis to jackets, dresses to accessories, this soft-to-the-touch texture looks good and feels even better.

Check out my top picks below to mix and match with your existing wardrobe. You can click to shop if something tickles your fancy. With so much ready-to-wear fashion utilising velvet, I guess you could say it’s touch and go…

Style It. One Dress, Three Ways

When it comes to fashion, I’m all for versatility. As much as I love a razzle dazzle dress, if there’s only one occasion I can wear it to, it just doesn’t have the same appeal. I usually look for styles that can be dressed up or down, hence why I love this Michael Kors dress.

Cool and casual by day, to weekend-worthy, to night-time sophistication. It ticks all the boxes. Check out how I would style it below…

Must Have. The 8 Books That Should Be On Your Reading List

I'm a massive bookworm. To the point where if I hop into bed at night with nothing to read I'll struggle to go to sleep. Seriously, it's a thing. Getting lost in the story of a novel is one of my favourite pastimes, which I have my parents to thank for encouraging this wonderful habit.

Generally, my tastes are quite varied. Period novels set during the world wars in Europe are a big favourite of mine, I also love a romantic comedy, a criminal mystery, a dystopian future or a real-life fashion tale.

Style It. Savouring The Last Of The Sun

If you live in Melbourne like me, you'll notice there's been a bit of a shift in temperature these past few days. Autumn has arrived with a noticeable flourish and, with the clocks turning back today, it won't be long until winter is on our doorstep.

Eat Me. The Collective, Palm Beach

A lovely school friend's wedding had me up on the GC last weekend. Sadly the sun didn't make much of an appearance which meant I had to spend my allotted beach time doing something else instead...

Like eating! I was happy with that because I've come to have a real excitement for trying the GC's latest and greatest eating spots when I visit and I think you'll like my latest find...

Style It. South Yarra Strolls

I go through stages with my clothes... But more often than not you'll find me in jeans. Particularly if I'm out and about. Last weekend I actually found myself with a day for some downtime. So what better way to spend it, than wandering the beautiful neighbourhood I call home?...

Style It. VAMFF, A Stitch In Time A Place Of Mine

Throughout March there's always an undercurrent of hub-bub in Melbourne's CBD. Set-up crews work tirelessly at iconic buildings, catering teams ferry to and fro, florists hurry about with overflowing bouquets and only the most stylish are seen on the sidewalks. Why? Because it's fashion week of course.

Must Have. The Work Week Wardrobe

There's a certain routine to my daily dressing. Get up, open cupboard, stare mindlessly into cupboard, sit down on bed, check weather, look in cupboard again... You get the drift. Eventually I'll find a look I'm happy with for the day but it isn't without careful consideration!

It's times like this a girl wishes she had Cher's revolving closet from Clueless. I mean after all, if an outfit isn't front and centre, you'll probably just forget about it, right?

Well, here's how you solve the problem for the Monday to Friday grind. These sophisticated black basics should be front and centre of every girl's wardrobe for chic, simplistic style that will take you through from coffee to cocktails. Because, let's be honest, a social event always beckons...
