DressCode: Oaks Day 2012

Thanks to Lana Del Rey I tend to think floral crowns are a bit overexposed at the moment. Yet when I spied Leah from Fashion Journal at a lunch recently wearing a version flipped back it stuck me that the smallest changes can make something fresh again. Such is fashion!

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: Caped Crusader

Such a beautiful evening last night at the first Designer Series runway show for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012. I think the weather may be against us at the Melbourne Town Hall tonight though! What I wore; White Suede cape jacket, my little ode to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford number
