A Few of the Times I Got Dressed This Week

Layer CityIMG_5261

Dress: Country Road

Skirt: Alexa Chung x AG Jeans

Ring: Dior

The Look: I am not sure why but on this day I felt compelled to wear a skirt over a dress. I blame Instagram. I don’t anyone at my day job appreciated this look (I got a few double takes) and my own mother questioned my decision, but hey I liked it.

The Queen of Ruffles


Top: Miu Miu

Skirt: Country Road

Shoes & Bag: Gucci

The Look: This is one of my all time favourite shirts. It sat on my Net-a-Porter wishlist for months until it went on sale and I snapped it up. My killer blister has finally healed and I can now wear normal shoes again so I celebrated by wearing my shiny Gucci loafers.

Inspector Gadget Goes to the Farmers Market


Top: Cinti and Parker

Jeans: Topshop

Coat: Vintage Burberry

Sneakers: Gucci

The Look: I think the title says it all. Plus I really did go to the Farmers Market.


The Polished Cat Lady


Top: Stella McCartney

Skirt: Country Road

Bag: Vintage Dior

Shoes: Miu Miu

The Look: When I first saw the collection Stella McCarntey did full of cat prints I knew I had to have something and this top was that something. I fricken love it.  I paired it with a tailored skirt and ladylike accessories.

Prim and Proper


Dress: Topshop Unique

Belt & Shoes: Gucci

Bag: Vintage Bally

The Look: I was very honoured to be nominated for ACT Young Woman of the Year and to attend the award presentation on Tuesday night. After a slight wardrobe malfunction in the dress I originally planned to wear, I instead wore this Topshop dress with Gucci accessories. It was for the best because if I had gone ahead with my original plan I would have been way overdressed.

80’s Barbie


Top: Topshop Unique

Jeans: Topshop

Belt & Shoes: Gucci

The Look: I don’t wear jeans very often at all. I find them difficult because of my waist to thigh/butt ratio and I don’t find them particularly comfortable. However the barrage of articles and visual odes to denim make me feel like I should wear it more often. So instead of pairing this Barbie pink top with a skirt as I usually would I tucked it into highwaisted jeans instead.

The Modern Mod in Miu Miu


Top: Country Road

Everything Else: Miu Miu

The Look: There was no rationale behind this look beyond a desire to wear Miu Miu.
