I can’t believe we stumbled upon this gorgeous little cafe in Manly, it literally made me feel like I was on a vacation from the eastern suburbs of Sydney! With my stripey dress, weekender and backpack next to the grass bar I felt like I was on a tropical getaway. Funny how a little outfit change, an ice latte, driving half and hour up the coast and a fresh set of earrings can perk your mood.

Tianna Murkins Dress | Colette Hayman necklace worn as belt | Colette Hayman Bag | Wittner Banin Sneakers | Quay Eyewear


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!

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.

Pink, Rose and Gold

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!

Glue Store Kit Out

I always get DMs and comments asking about the best places to shop in Sydney usually from people who are visiting or who have recently moved here – one of my personal favourite places to kit out a new wardrobe is Glue Store. Their range of awesome sports brands from Adidas Originals and Nike Sportswear next to international brands like Calvin Klein mixed with their Aussie labels like Mink Pink and A Brand are great to browse through and find a super affordable outfit which is great for uni, work or going out.

I’m usually a very casual dresser so I’m all about the denims and tees so this is my go-to shop for when I want a cool printed logo, stripe tee or jumper to go back with my denims. Also I love their sneakers and watch collection!!

Their biggest store is the one in Central and I recommend that one if you want the best range.

MBFWA Fashion Week Day 3 2017

One of the funnest outfits I’ve ever worn to fashion week! A bright yellow faux fur coat and my favourite part is that I got to wear jeans so I was totally in my element and they had stars on them! so that theme dragged on from the previous day where I wore stars on my blazer and blouse (it was unintentional but a happy accident nonetheless).

Not Your Standard Dress

A huge trend that’s been on the cards is mesh, but this dress from Showpo has really amped up the anti with this almost chainmail style maxi dress with high slits. Okay, maybe it’s technically a top but it’s so dope either way.

I put it over this gorgeous bralette also from Showpo and my fave little black booties of the season from Sol Sana.

One sunny day this week snuck in between the rainy ones and we got a gloriously hot & beautiful day. On this day I layered my favourite silk shirt from Grana over my new bustier from Naran as well as gorgeous grey leather mini skirt from Kookai. I love mixing plains with details such as lace and this gorgeous metal detailing on my new metal bag from St Xavier, it’s more subtle than clashing prints but still makes a statement.

When the team at Colette by Colette Hayman told me they had a fun, new activation for bags that you can change daily without having to buy a whole new bag I knew I had to get involved. I love the idea of changing up the look of your bag with details as small as adding a pom pom, tassel or changing the strap! They have so many different colour options for all of the straps, tassels and pom poms you’ll actually freak out. You can see the whole range here.

Today I styled my classic black Colette Hayman bag with a natural beige pom pom and leopard print guitar strap to go back with my knitted shorts, tan shirt and star flatforms. Keep an eye out for my next few posts where I’ll change up this bag for a totally new look.

The Comfiest All Black Jeans On The Market

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-jeanswest Jeanswest Super Skinny Jeans | Glamorous Satin Backpack | Bonds Rib Tee | Oscar Wylee Sunglasses | Public Desire Boots


I thought I had abandoned all signs of skinny jeans, this is until I go to try the new Jeanswest Super Skinny Jeans collection. The denim is sourced from Turkey and stretches 4-ways which means they stretch up, down, left and right so there’s no option of discomfort and they don’t lose their shape. It’s a nice mid-rise for those who aren’t really into full high rise and because nobody should be wearing low-waisted jeans anymore! They’re so unflattering! So please give these bad boys a try if you’re looking at getting a pair of BA skinny jeans that will last you forever.
