Some of My Better Style Moments This Month

I recently moved into my new house and am still in the throes of setting up my dressing room. I have things everywhere including at my mums. I had dreams of revolutionising my wardrobe and the way I dress as soon as I moved in however, as with most things I highly anticipate, my plan was not as instantaneous in its execution as I had intended.

Nevertheless I have managed to pull together a few rather special outfits from among the chaos this month.

 

The Party Dress

Dress: Kenzo x H&M

Shoes: Burberry

The Look: I am a big Kenzo fan and was excited to hear of the Parisian labels’ collaboration with H&M. My friend Becca brought me this dress home from New York and I was also lucky enough to have my friend Kara get me some pants in Melbourne. I love the over the top print and outsize proportions.

 

Weekend Luxe

Top: Vintage Chanel blouse

Skirt: Country Road suede skirt

Bag: Gucci

Sandals: Miu Miu

The Look: I took my boyfriend Jesse to Melbourne for his birthday (also on the agenda was the Viktor and Rolf exhibition) and wanted to put together a luxe casual look. I wear this Chanel blouse a lot but mostly tucked in, so to change it up I decided to play with the old half tuck seen on many an instagram star.

 

On the Prairie

Sunglasses: Miu Miu

Dress: Alexa Chung for AG jeans

Sandals: Miu Miu

The Look: I am rather partial to this dress but am always slightly disappointed that I don’t quite look the way Alexa Chung herself does when she wears it. My boyfriend absolutely despises this dress and won’t even kiss me when I wear it. I, however don’t let a trifle like that stop me.

 

Clueless

Bralet: Cue

T-shirt: Casa Kuma

Skirt: Vintage Chanel

Shoes: Burberry (you can tell I haven’t unpacked all my shoes can’t you?)

Bag: Vintage Louis Vuitton

The Look: I recently attended the David Jones Season Launch in Sydney and put this little Clueless inspired number together. You will have no doubt noticed on Instagram the current fascination with sticking a t-shirt under anything and everything which, as someone who prefers to cover up, is a trend I can get behind.

 

The Power of Pink

Top: Topshop Unique

Skirt: Alexa Chung x AG Jeans suede skirt

Shoes: MR by ManRepeller

The Look: Pink is my favourite colour and I love clashing it with my red hair. I felt like a 80s glamour superstar in this top but I got a horrific blister from these shoes. When I put this photo on Instagram, Leandra Cohen (nee Medine, my queen) liked the photo and I nearly died of happiness.

 

Lady in Red

Jacket and Dress: Simone Rocha x J Brand

Shoes: Charlotte Olympia

The Look: After pink, red is my next favourite colour. I love Simone Rocha and everything she does and when I heard about her collaboration with J Brand I was poised and ready to scoop up these two pieces the minute they became available on Net-a-Porter. I had intended to wear different shoes but my blister situation has got my stuck in backless shoes. I also stuck a white t-shirt under this dress and turned it red. Woops.

 

Statement Sleeves

Sunglasses: Miu Miu

Top: Topshop

Skirt: Alexa Chung x AG Jeans

Shoes: Topshop

Bag: Gucci

The Look: I have been lusting over a very similar shirt by Sandy Liang for ages but couldn’t afford it, so instead I got the next best thing: the Topshop knock-off. Same with these Topshop shoes, they are the knock-off equivalent of a pair of Gucci heeled loafers and Miu Miu brocade shoes having a baby.

Emma Batchelor

Emma Batchelor

As well as a near obsessive interest in fashion, Emma is a former scientist, occasional contemporary dancer, avid reader and self-confessed cat lady (she has three). Emma lived in Leiden in the Netherlands as a baby and Leiden ought to have been her middle name had her mother thought of it at the time and not chosen Louise instead.
