It’s StyleMelbourne’s 7th Birthday today…and also its last. Time to break out the cake and Champagne for this dual occasion. I’m excited and, of course, a little bit wistful about it. The evolution of StyleMelbourne will be revealed very soon. Stay tuned to Instagram for the big reveal. While the new

DressCode: Hello Summer

Sarah Willcocks StyleMelbourne Melbourne fashion blogger

I attempted to be the hostess with the mostest at a party held recently at Captain Baxter to launch the Summer social season in Melbourne. We decided upon the tongue in cheek (or should that be tongue in chic) dresscode of ‘Yacht Club Luxe’ which saw guests break out sailor-detailing, floaty

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: Stakes Day 2012

Stakes Day at Flemington’s Spring Racing Carnival is all about winding down. It’s a little more casual than the other three days in tone and fashion. So happy to survive the week relatively unscathed. My Stakes Day in the Birdcage was filled with confetti, beach balls and tropical pineapples so
