This past weekend I styled Lynette Bolton, for Hearts on The Harbour. Lynette is an Event Manager for her company LCB Productions, TV presenter for Kochie’s Angels on Sunrise and The Morning Show, blogger and mother.

As a member of the Hearts Committee - a team who put together the Hearts Event for The Kids Cancer Project, Lynette donated her event teams services and her own to help raise funds to cure cancer and put together the fabulous Hearts on the Harbour dinner at The Sydney Opera House.

As an intergral part of the event, it was important that Lynette’s style for the evening reflected her involvement and personal style.

Lynette and the Hearts Committee managed to raise almost $80,000 towards children’s cancer research as a result of fundrasing initiatives during the evening. Find out more about how you can donate to the cause by visiting LCB Productions.

My Style. Bardot Bomber Jacket

image

I’ve been needing to add a Bomber Jacket to my wardrobe for quite some time. Whilst I was prepared to spend quite a lot of money to get something functional that could work with a number of pieces in my wardrobe, you can imagine how excited I was (as was my husband) to have discovered this affordable Quilted Bomber jacket at Bardot. Priced at just $139.95, it’s already starting to become a part of my daily uniform.

If you’re looking to have the current season’s trends for a fraction of the cost, look no further than Bardot - the chain store is truly having a fashionable moment.

Autumn Racing. Doncaster Day in Nicola Finetti

Tara O’keefe, Director of all things wedding, at De La Mod and wife of Sydney Swan’s Ryan O’keefe, took a punt on me to style her for the BMW Doncaster Day at Sydney’s new Royal Randwick Racecourse this past Saturday. Tara’s style is naturally quite fashion forward and even though the weather forecast for the day wasn’t very inspiring, cold and showers, she was prepared to step it up, all in the name of fashion.

I had fallen in love with this stunning Nicola Finetti dress during the Myer Autumn/Winter Launch a few weeks ago. With a touch of monochrome and the sophistication of a peplum and open back, it was truly perfection for the big race day ahead. The 2013 Autumn/Winter col­lec­tion from Nicola Finetti is feast for the eyes with mas­ter­ful clashes of pat­terns, colours, tex­tures and shapes. As always, the col­lec­tion cel­e­brates the female form by bal­anc­ing con­trasts like struc­ture that also seem to have ele­ments of grace and softness.

To complement the dress, I opted for these gorgeous and on trend black court booties from Kookai’s current Autumn/Winter collection and a contrasting white clutch from Peeptoe to appeal to Tara’s personal style. No race wear outfit is complete without a fabulous fascinator and Sydney milliner Viktoria Novak’s Gatsby inspired embellished headband gave the outfit a vintage look, with a modern direction.

Coco posted new looks daily – styled & shot on the move – using only a handheld camera and her natural surroundings. With all the content posted on sass & bide’s social media channels, with a live feed through to sassandbide.com as well as through fashion bloggers like myself…the takeover began.

From January 23, sass & bide counted down to Coco’s takeover with a ‘teaser’ campaign shot in London by photographer Angelo Pennetta and styled by Victoria Young. The images slowly revealed Coco’s identity over a five-day period.

During the takeover  that kicked off on January 28,  Coco  was featured in candid, raw and energetic shots self-styled in the sass & bide SS13 collection ‘loveshady’ giving a sneak peek into the daily activities & musings of a supermodel ‘off-duty’.

It certainly had me and many others wanting more – not to mention lusting for Sass & Bide’s latest collection.

My Style. Derby Day in Camilla & Marc

Even though I dress people for a living and provide style advice, like every girl, I find myself seeking the nod of approval when it comes to my own fashionable choices. This year’s Derby Day was no exception.

I was a guest of Tabcorp and Muum Champagne on Derby Day, so I chose this white Camilla & Marc dress from their latest 2012/13 Resort collection. A  little on the risky side for a race day I will admit,  but as most of you know, I’ll always go with the more directional piece over the safe option. I love Camilla & Marc and this latest collection has me lusting for balmy nights and summer parties.

Accessorised with a leather fascinator by amazing Sydney milliner Viktoria Novak, jewellery by Stella Nemiro, clutch by Collette and leopard ‘Gilda’ pumps by Lauren Marinis. Lauren Marinis is one to watch, she is going to be a big player in the world of fabulous fashion footwear.

Styling Rachel Williams in Carla Zampatti

It was my greatest pleasure to style one of my gorgeous best friend’s Rachel Williams, for her engagement party.  I was tote’s excited as she and her fiancee Jayson Watts, are two of my closest friends. So pressure was on to ensure she was a standout.

Rachel wanted to wear a maxi dress but given her small frame, it  just meant that I had to find the perfect dress that would expose her tiny frame.

I didn’t have to look much further than Carla Zampatti’s Aquamarine Georgette Gown. The plunging neck line and tapered waist are complimented by fluid draping and a cut away back, creating an elegant silhouette.

Styled with simple sterling silver jewels, a wispy up do and Tony Bianco’s Ambrose Heels in Skin Lizard Nubuck, Rachel looked absolutely stunning.

A spectacular night, I wish Rachel and Jayson all the happiness in the world, as they truly deserve it.

Much love!

LW Styling Preview. COVET Magazine Amber Greasley

as

Before the torrential rain came last Tuesday, I was styling the beautiful Miss World Australia, Amber Greasley for COVET Magazine, out 30 August. The second time I’ve been a contributor to this fabulously on-trend online mag, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek behind the scenes…

I sported my silk Sass & Bide pants and Zara jacket for the day, that were literally saturated with rain post the shoot. That said, I couldn’t have had more fun with the COVET team; super photographer Anthony Licuria of APL Photography, make up artist Renee Zanelli and hair stylist Sash of Biba Camberwell. And of course, the easy going and professional Amber Greasely, who Melbournians are lucky to call their own having just moved from Brisbane.

AMAZING looks provided by the teams at the The Make Fashion Agency & The ARC Factory, Peeptoe, Stella Nemiro, Ixiah, Mossman, Topshop, Samantha Wills, Betts for Her, Zara & Portmans to name a few. I can’t wait to share this with them and you when the issue becomes available at the end of this month.
