Styling Myer SS14 Fashion Launch in Nicola Finetti

Nicola Finetti’s Spring/Summer 2013/14 collection is on another level. With the designer’s latest collection featuring a gorgeous array of monos, metallic, bold colours, white on white and stripe prints, it was on the top of my list when sourcing a Myer designer for the Spring/Summer launch for my client Tara O’keefe, wedding extroidinare at De La Mod, and wife of AFL Sydney Swan, Ryan O’keefe.

One of my favourite pieces in the collection, available at Myer, is Nicola Finetti’s  new season ‘Angled Hem Skirt’, available in an array of colours and prints. It makes a statement and is very wearable beyond a night out. Pair with a tee to dress it down or dial it up with a crop top, shirt or blazer.

I’m crushing on the cropped top at the moment, so these two pieces together were speaking to me. I’ve been going through a monochrome phase so it was great to put Tara in some pop colour, styled with new season Peeptoe clutch and Tony Bianco shoes.

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.

Designer. Nicola Finetti + Jeanswest Denim = Love

Last week, I did a spot of shopping with my colleague My Super Nanny founder, Stephanie Wakefield whilst we were having a ’ meeting’ about all things FASHION and my blog on My Super Nanny.

I know Steph LOVES wearing black, but with Spring just around the corner, I thought it was high time I took the opportunity to talk her into shutting it down in some new season trends - coloured denim and neon!

You can never go wrong with a classic skinny leg jean and with the right blouse, and a pop of colour, you can take your look from day to night.

Styled with her own ankle boots, Marc Jacobs bag, Michael Kors Watch and Samantha Wills gold cuff.

LOVING Nicola Finetti

My gorgeous client Dee, who discovered me on Facebook, looked gorgeous in this V-Front Bodice dress by Nicola Finetti for a recent event. We accessorised her dress with Tony Bianco Heels, Sportsgirl ruby red clutch and Diva accessories.

Most of you know I HEARTED this dress and posted on my blog when Myer ambassador Lauren Phillips wore it to the AW12 season launch.

Big thanks to Dee for letting me share our expedition on my blog. And if any of you have an event or need some new additions in your wardrobe don’t hesitate to contact me.
