Wrap It Up


This top is ticking two of my fave garment-related boxes: red and wrap-style! Crossover/wrap tops and dresses are so flattering, with the added benefit of being adjustable - perfect for when you've eaten too much for lunch.

INXS 40th Anniversary Masquerade Ball

Last week, I wrapped myself up in a big red bow and attended a masquerade ball celebrating my father's band, INXS. I took my beautiful mum as my date (pictured above on the right, with Dad on the left) and we had a fab time, catching up with old family friends and checking out the memorabilia - most of which my mum probably has stored in her attic!

It's a Baguette

T-SHIRT: Cotton On  |  TROUSERS: Lulu and Rose  |  SHOES: Stuart Weitzman (floral version HERE, cream version HERE)  |  HANDBAG: Longchamp (silver hardware version HERE, similar version HERE)

I have been jonesing for some classic, black capri pants for the past year or two, but this Goldilocks simply cannot find the right pair! In the meantime, these 1950s-esque gingham bad boys are doing the trick, and have a fun ruffle to boot. I'm also v v into my new vintage Longchamp bag, with its early 2000sSex And The City baguette vibe. Now, who's up for Cosmopolitans?

Red Trench Coat

TRENCH COAT: Ralph Lauren (similar HERE, HEREHERE and HERE)  |  T-SHIRT: NEUW  |  JEANS: NEUW (also HERE and HERE)  |  BAG: Deadly Ponies (similar HERE and HERE)

It's so annoying running on opposite seasons to the rest of the world. I've spent the entire Australian winter pining over images of everyone else enjoying summer, just waiting to break out my basket bags and gingham separates. But now that it's here, I'm already tired of those summer trends! I also keep forgetting that we're even going into summer, because all of the fashion content I absorb is currently packed with "Fall boot trends" and "the 12 best sweaters to shop now". I'll never complain about warmer weather, though, even when it fades at sundown and leaves one needing to break out their latest vintage find - this tomato red Ralph Lauren trench coat. I also fashioned my cross body bag into a belt bag, which I am pretty flipping smug about!
