Drifting through Tuscany

Hi everyone! We moved from a quaint small town to the Tuscan shoreline which was absolutely stunning. The shoreline was filled with designer boutiques and restaurants. The strip was constantly walked by local families either all linked in arms or in heated discussions.
Our first day was magical! After paying 20 Euro for the use of an umbrella, set of chairs, 2 beach towels and some still water we sat on the beach for 5 hours soaking up the sun and authentic Italian atmosphere. Unfortunately since sunny day 1, we had experienced a huge thunderstorm and it didn't stop raining for two days. Luckily we photographed this Forever New 'Brynn Mirror Print Dress' while the sun was still shining. I love the print on this dress and think it could be a great option for Spring Racing Carnival. Check out the details of this look below- all products are available from Highpoint Shopping Centre.

Posing in Pisa

Hello lovelies! Well, Dusty and I have braved the roads and have been driving through Italy.  I have been overwhelmed by the breathtaking scenery and pleasantly surprised by the warm autumn weather. We stopped off to visit one of the seven wonders of the middle ages, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. There it stood, tall and proud and extremely photogenic might I add. We had to compete amongst the many tourists for that perfect shot of you looking as though you are holding the tower up. 

I wanted to share my look below. I'm wearing a Rodeo Show 'Mulberry Tank',  Forever New 'Liz Lace Shorts' with wedged sandals from Sportsgirl. To get this look (similar accessories) visit the bottom of this post. All products are available at Highpoint Shopping Centre.

Thanks for stopping by!

Under the Tuscan Sun

Hi everyone! I have arrived in Italy after a fun but hectic week covering London Fashion Week. I have to admit the minute we arrived at Rome (my first time in Italy) I started to tear up. I felt this rush of emotions and connection with my heritage. My mother and father were both born in Italy and having grown up with Italian speaking grandparents and the traditional values and cultures instilled in me, it was a really special moment.

After 5 days sightseeing in Rome we moved on to Tuscany. Dusty found this incredible Tuscan Villa which was first built in 1100AD. It has been owned by only 6 families within that time. It is like living in a different era. You enter via a 40 metre entrance foyer with hand painted walls dating back to the 18th Century. There are historical family photos spread amongst the different rooms including a library and music room. And to top it off you can sit on the grande balcony that overlooks the garden which is filled with fruit trees; their frangrance makes you salivate. It's just magical.

I was waiting to post my look below in the perfect setting and Tuscany was just it. Unfortunately it was too cold to style during LFW. I love this look from Alannah Hill and accessories from Olga Berg and Jo Mercer. I think it would make a perfect Spring Racing Carnival Look too. 

I've included details on my look as well as images showcasing this gorgeous historical villa below. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Get My LFW Look

Well, London Fashion Week has come to an end and I'm absolutely exhausted. It has been a fun but very tiring week. I really hope you enjoyed the coverage. I still have a lot more to post from the week so stay tuned.
I wanted to share my final look from LFW. I am wearing this amazing Cue dress which is perfectly named Python Origami Dress. The fabric is so rich in texture and is constructed to appear like a folded piece of paper. I accessorised with an Olga Berg clutch and Jo Mercer nude heels. 
Thank you to Olga Berg and Cue for generously dressing me fro LFW.

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying my London Fashion Week coverage so far. I wanted to share with you my Look from Day 3. I'm wearing all Highpoint Shopping retailers. Again, I wasn't planning on the weather being so cold and rainy, which I know you must think I'm mad because I hear this is typically London weather.

Thank you so much to Veronika Maine, Rodeo Show, Alannah Hill and Seed for generously providing me with the pieces below.

LFW Outfit Post

Hi everyone! On Day 2 at LFW I was excited to share my look from retailers at Highpoint Shopping Centre that they generously provided for the big event. Unfortunately it was a grey and miserable day with pockets of rain so I had to change my outfit at the last minute. I actually enjoy the challenge of changing a look with little preparation. I find the rushed decision allows me to create something new and exciting that I may not have considered otherwise.

I'm wearing this amazing a Rodeo Show dress and belt from their new collection and layered with a feminine detailed, embellished cardigan from Alannah Hill. I accessorised with an Olga Berg two tone clutch and my new beige booties from Jo Mercer.

LFW Day 1

Wow, what an amazing first day at London Fashion Week. My day began with a blow wave from the amazing Toni&Guy owhich was set up at the Designer Showroom at Somerset Hall the main venue for LFW and what an incredible and charming venue. I was spoilt rotten with champagne and many laughs from the amazing staff. 

Later I was invited backstage at the Nian and the Ping He shows where I watched the amazing Toni & Guy team style the models hair and make-up. Can you believe Toni & Guy are celebrating their 50th year? They are celebrating by flying teams of Toni & Guy from all over the world to LFW. They are also welcoming 'label.m' as the official haircare product range of London Fashion Week.

It wasn't as chaotic backstage as I've seen in the past; designers, models, hair and make-up artist worked efficiently and united whilst listening to chilled music. Media teams were spread amongst the very beautiful Freemasons Hall adding content immediately after collections were presented down the runway. I have to thank the incredible Toni and Guy team for inviting me into their showrooms and backstage. 
After these shows I rushed over to the incredible Jean-Pierre Braganza with another Aussie, gorgeous Kat, digital marketing coordinator for Toni & Guy Australia, back at Somerset House. She generously escorted me to the show. I fell in love with this incredible collection. Check out his work below.
