Confession time. I love clothes (that part you know). I just haven’t been feeling comfortable in them for a long while. With two fashion weeks and a milestone birthday on the horizon, this is a situation I decided to remedy (then again I seem to make such resolutions every Monday;

DressCode: Portsea Polo 2013

What I wore to the Posrtsea Polo

A sneaky little outfit post from the 2013 Portsea Polo. Relaxing in the Peroni marquee at the end of the day… Skirt – a beautiful digital smoke print by Cylk Hot air balloon necklace – I’ve had this Elk pendant on my wishlist for ever. Finally it is mine for

A little luxe guide to Daylesford

Serene. Tranquil. Placid. I seized upon a temporary escape from this manic industry bubble when I was invited to visit the Daylesford/Hepburn Springs/Spa Country region late least year. 2013 is barely up and running and I’m already dreaming of running away to the country again. Below you’ll find a list

Spa Country Style

They say it’s all about the journey not the destination. Not so, when you’re in desperate need of tranquillity and are headed to Spa Country for the very first time. An easy highway drive past sun-bleached grasslands, rolling hills and woodlands recently brought me to Daylesford and Hepburn Springs for an all

DressCode: Silk & Ink

At Holly Lodge accommodation in Daylesford

DressCode: Ponies & Polo

I don’t mind being a little whimsical when dressing up. So when I saw this limited edition horse print blouse I just had to wear it to the equine-centric polo. Happily it fits like a dream. The rest of the outfit just fell into place from there. Inspiration points in

DressCode: Sequins & Neon part deux

Outfit post: on a mission at a chic high tea.

Headed out to Werribee Mansion’s new SocieTEA high tea on Sunday. Put together this little outfit in which to eat many a fancy sandwich.

DressCode: Melbourne Cup 2012

Melbourne Cup Day is synonymous with jockeys’ silks and blooming roses and this year more than ever we get have our way with colour. I met the lovely Lisa from Lady of Leisure millinery recently at a lunch and instantly admired her neon orange hat. She kindly sent me this

DressCode: Derby Day 2012

Recovering from a thrilling Derby Day yesterday; I didn’t actually touch a drop, it was just an epic party. Gregarious Italian designer Roberto Cavalli made a splash in the Lavazza birdcage marquee (from where I report live on fashion, food and style during the carnival), but I was just as

DressCode: Caulfield Cup 2012

There’s a silly superstition that wearing green is bad luck; something you certainly don’t want looming when it comes time for a flutter. Happily I was able to balance out this apparent bad juju by wearing a lucky symbol – an origami crane (made from real paper) by milliner Kerrie
