I am no Saint

Current state of mind … Do I or don’t I keep ridiculously expensive hoodie delivered in my favourite black box, which is now cooling off, slightly ajar but with contents intact, in my wardrobe?  Spending this much on fleece cotton, destined for wearing to school pick up, netball courtside and a single more formal event – juxtaposed […]

The Palermo Print Clash

Today, it was perfectly hot to wear this slip of silk that is called the Five Ways dress by the designer of brand Coco Ribbon*.  It’s such a simple concept and the designer suggests 5 different ways to wear it, using the silk tie it comes with.  I’ve gone bit off-piste and just tucked it […]

Slip Dress Done Three Ways

It’s hot in Sydney lately. Consistently hot. Which isn’t very Sydney, even though theoretically, it fits perfectly with it being summer. Coincidentally, slip dresses are also hot at the moment and I am a big, big fan, despite the fact that I am at an age that where thoughts of slips are often more about petticoats, or […]

A Pair and a Spare

Of trends, that is. Continuing with the review I’ll chunk a few together today.  Unlike slip dresses, or mules (coming soon), these three feel a little more transient – they may be the fluro to the boyfriend jean, where one burnt bright (literally) and then fizzled, and the other slowly crept into the fashion vernacular and lodged itself. […]

Trending : Slip into something more comfortable

I wanted to do a piece on trends.  But I thought, rather than originate a new list, I’d use and personalise one  from whowhatwear.com.  This is one of my favourite blogs for great images, shopping links and current trend editorial.  There’s a lot on the list though, so I will add to the blog one trend at a […]

Ex-Con seen in Vans

My friend Uli once told me a story about her teenage son. She had asked him if she looked too old to be wearing something. He answered that she looked fine, but the thing he thought was really embarrassing was ‘old people’ (so, I’m guessing, anyone over 30) wearing Converse shoes. I must admit, it did […]

New clothes, new look.

My Friend Uli has been waiting for me to post some of my outfits from a recent holiday in US. Except that I didn’t take those sort of pics. So I thought I’d post this one, as it’s of an outfit I bought there. As well as being a bit of a segue from my […]

Bags this bag

I wish the Mum from ‘Mum & Co’ was my mum. Although I do have the most fabulous mum, she doesn’t make these stunning bags. I’m off to New York in a few weeks so was checking out Racked on Facebook for the 47,000th time – not excited, much – and was seduced by the […]

Monday Shopping List

      Did I mention that I’m self-employed? Well, for the past few months it’s more like self-unemployed and all sorts of onerous adjustments have been made. Simply the worst is that I am on a shopping hiatus until further notice (like, someone pays me to do some work for them). It doesn’t really […]

Hello Again.

It’s been seven months since my last post. Last August I was full of anticipation for my inaugural holiday in New York, which coincidentally happened to be at the same time as Fashion Week.  A rational thinking person would predict that fashion-gorging would be the inevitable end result, with many excited and accompanying blog posts. […]
