Last week I announced that FBI Fashion College students will be showcasing their end of year designs at Castle Towers from October 5th – 17th. If you haven’t seen my Part I of this post, you can find it here.

In this post I am wearing a gorgeous champagne satin slip with embroidered denim jacket made from repurposed denim (which is amazing because I am a huge fan of recycling), designs by the young and talented Emily Parker.

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-hotel-palisade2 Hotel Palisade


I’m a huge fan of a staycation in your own city. There’s nothing like seeing this beautiful town from another point of view, especially when that view is at the top of the town! With only eight rooms in total, Hotel Palisade is truely one of the most unique hotels you’ll ever stay in. There’s no room service or breakfast but it does have one of the most delicious rooftop restaurants I’ve ever been to, Henry Deane. The best part is you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to visit, I recommend the scallops and froze!

Hotel Palisade is also in prime position for all Uber Eats delivery services (which I may have dabbled in), otherwise you can just stroll down to Barangaroo 10 minutes down the road and dine at any of the restaurants or cafes there as well as tonnes of shopping!

Every single room has a stunning view and the staff are so helpful and passionate about what they do which is always a nice family to be a part of, even if for a night.

So if you’re looking at a unique Sydney hotel experience, you can’t beat Hotel Palisade. You’re right in the city but not in the CBD so it’s never noisy with sirens, cars, or foot traffic. A peaceful getaway in the heart of Sydney everyone should experience at least once.

As an alumni of FBI Fashion College,I was sooo excited that I finally get to collaborate with their up and coming fashion design students who have made some truely amazing and beautiful designs. Here I am wearing a dress designed by Tianna Murkins. I love the rose gold fabric which has a dobby stripe through the fabric. She’s cut the pieces of the dress so that they are a-symmetrical and highlight the neckline and catch the light in so many ways, small details which are really the eye of a good designer.

This is only one of the pieces of her collection, not to mention the many other designers that will be on show at Castle Towers from October 5th until October 17th… so if you’re interested in seeing what the Future of Fashion will be, please go check it out!

The perfect pearl cross body bag

Colette Hayman Pearl Cross Body Bag | Colette Hayman Snake Charm Choker | Colette Hayman Earrings (similar here) | Colette Hayman Stackable ringsCold Shoulder TopGlassons Denim Mini Skirt | Wittner Boots


I’m a huge fan of the mini bag, the cross body and gold detailing, add a few pearls and you’ve found a gorgeous new addition to your spring wardrobe! This little bag is such a statement piece that I don’t recommend wearing it with prints like stripes, polka dots, or florals but let it be the stand out piece of your outfit with solid colours.

So hello Spring and goodbye jackets (finally!) because I have NO TIME for you.

When life gives you lemons

Pretty Little Thing Bikini | Bandeau Bikini | High Rise Bikini | Triangle Scallop Bikini


A little impromptu shoot I did with Wes while out at Bronte pool. So simple yet I love this series of images (if I say so myself) which I think is a good indicator that I’m doing what I love. After a series of unfortunate events with work that got and me down and down again I love that what I truely love doing is creating content and producing work I’m proud of with my team, a team of two. Wes and I. Hahahah.

In a world where everything you do has to be done because you’re paid for it it’s nice to step back and do something you’re not paid for a remember why you started in the first place, decide if you still love doing it or not. If you do, keep going!! If you don’t, find something else you’re good at and start that. It’s never too late to start a new career.

One day in London with Colette by Colette Hayman

I came to visit my best friend in London right after I spent a week in the Greek islands and definitely got the London treatment of hot subway rides, unsolicited rain, double decker bus rides, flowers everywhere (even if they’re fake), lots of food and improvising with outfits after travelling with the same clothes for 5 weeks.

In this post I’m wearing the same playsuit in both outfits, one was layered under a mesh tee and a denim mini, the other under a chambray shirt around my waist ready to pop over when the temperature drops (which it did!) All the while wearing the same accessories from Colette by Colette Hayman just to show how to mix and match your wardrobe whether you’re travelling or not because you don’t need to have a lot to make cute outfits, just the perfect bag and killer accessories.

Denim, off the shoulder, puffy sleeves, pink shearling, acne boots and the perfect pink clutch makes for one hell of an outfit for a day out in the city. My favourite details are layering fine pieces like the skinny chokers and the long necklace with added sparkle from a star studded brooch I attached to the skirt from Colette by Colette Hayman. It’s understated and really changes up a plain outfit. You can add this brooch to your hair, a jacket, a bag, a top button on a collared shirt – get creative and have fun! And thanks for reading, I trust you all had the best long weekend!

Look 2:

Pretty Little Thing Hollie Black Metallic Biker Jacket | Cilla Basic Jersey Flare Leg Jumpsuit | Naye Black Dragon Detail Choker | Feenga Gold Hexagon Frame Sunglasses | Gebriel Black Ring Zip Sock Boots


I’m a big fan of versatility and a jacket that I can wear day to night and to look completely different from the beginning of the day to the end is a jacket I can get on board with. For my lunch time stroll by the beach I wore the biker with my denim skirt, cropped tee and studded boots with the sleeves bunched up at the elbows. I transitioned this rock/ grunge look into dinner by changing into a jersey flared jumpsuit, belted it, threw on boot heels and made it hella dope by adding a dragon choker. I wore the jacket as a cape because that’s just what bloggers do. You should try it some time.

Both of these looks came from Pretty Little Thing a website which I am obsessing over right now because of how many styles they have available that are on point and affordable. So check them out for your next wardrobe haul.

And so ends another week of gorgeous, golden winter sun in Sydney. I’m loving gold statement items like these sunglasses and earrings to pop next to the lurex in this knit crop top. A casual and dressy outfit for a day and night out on a Friday.
