Sunday Sanctuary: Paulina Arcklin

I’m sure you would have seen some of these beauties floating around the pinterest-sphere, the beautiful work of interiors photographer and stylist Paulina Arcklin stands out amongst the crowd in the best way possible. Paulina is welcome to come over to place anytime and add some of her minimalist wonder to my floor space, we can […]


Anya what can we say.  It’s been some time now but the last time I worked with Anja Konstantinova was too much fun, this chic is not only one mega babe but moves like the wind.  Thanks to the team at Marie Clair UK for this editorial and the beautiful raw beauty of one of […]

Sheer Force

Bonded, belted, tied up and layered not matter how you choose to wear your leather there’s something here for everyone.  Take stylist Calyan Atinc’s advice and experiment.. you just never know your boundaries until you try .. model: Stephanie Cook  .  photographer: Koray Parlak  .  stylist: Caylan Atinc  .  XOXO The Mag

Reverse Psychology

  Trust Vivienne Westwood with her unique style of creativity to create a button up shirt to be worn backwards.  Only Vivienne and perhaps Tom Green could pull off the ‘backwards man’ approach and totally get away with it.  You see sometimes we have to remember to keep business at the front and the party out the […]

Duty Calls

  I have to admit and I know that you will too.. we like to shop..girls that is, the female species.  You see it’s almost as though something was planted deep down in the DNA of our double helix well before man (ah hem humans should say) even held one of those small plastic cards that are the […]

On Point

As you may have figured out by now that there is nothing I love more than a sleek, all black outfit, just add some leather along with some favourite timeless accessories and you have my essential daily uniform. If you ask me, all black is never boring as long as you have a few chic wardrobe essentials […]

The Saint

As far as I’m concerned, the Saint Laurent ‘Le Smoking’ Tuxedo is one of fashions greats, an icon that I don’t think will be matched any time soon. Minimal, chic, androgynous and perfectly tailored, this puppy will never go out of style.  It’s always strange the first time that you wear a head to toe […]

One & Only

I know that I’m not the only one that’s identified a current obsession with the oversized single earring.  Next on the radar this spangled baby from Celine.. we can always trust Pheobe to set our hearts racing .. Illustration: Amanda Shadforth

Sure Thing

Mondays for me are all about relaxed workwear, thanks to Anja Rubik for reinterpreting the perfect tailored suit this might need to become part of the weekday outfit rotation .. model: Anja Rubik  .  photographer: Collier Schorr  .  stylist: Sissy Vian  .  Flair Magazine October #13 2014

Sunday Sanctuary: Mirror Mirror

We all love a good mirror let’s be honest, and I swear it’s not even about vanity.. there’s just something magical about the right mirror that can change the entire look of a room.  Vintage, Art Deco, super modern or grouped in a collection on the wall, we hope that you’re inspired .. happy Sunday […]

The Thick Of It

Oversized knitwear never goes out of fashion, who wouldn’t say no to a slouchy cashmere cardigan on a cold and windy day.  Even if you’re in the northern hemisphere I suggest that you always keep a good knit by your side, you just never know when you’ll find yourself in need of a pair of […]

Merve Ozaslan – Collage Artist

Turkish born Merve Ozaslan has a way of seeing things that none of us would usually see.  There is something magical about an artist who can take the everyday or in the case yesterday and interpret it to represent something else all together.  I’m especially a fan of the buildings embedded with seascapes, I wonder […]

Je Parle Francais

A day off in Paris should consist of certain things … brunch at L’Avenue (I strongly recommend the berry pancakes), an afternoon spent at the Louvre followed by some people watching in the Tuilleries (even though those green lawn chairs are slightly uncomfortable they’re equally conveniently instagrammable) and lastly drinks and dinner by candlelight in one of […]

Desert Storm

There’s something simple and beautiful about these images by photographer Cameron Hammond.  Simplicity can sometimes be the key in good story telling, leaving the observer to descipher their own meanings to the images.  Add all those ingredients and the super babes Lola McDonnell and another favourite Jana Kruger who I once styled and creatively directed […]

High Expectations

There was a time when I felt like the ‘pleat’ conjured images of girl guide uniforms or even Britney Spears, don’t deny that you don’t know what I’m talking about.  Well if it’s possible, aversion has turned to affection and the pleat is currently on high repeat. Crimpy, boxy and even leathery there is all kinds of […]

After The Fall

Luxurious wool layering, patent platforms and THAT Celine earring.. say no more ..  photographer: Laurence Ellis .  stylist: Joanna Schlenzka .  ‘Luxury’ Telegraph Magazine 


There is something to be said for a good coat, no?  I don’t know what happened but in the last 12 months this area of my wardrobe quadruped in size literally.  Perhaps it was the return of  nouveau-grunge laying or just the fact that I realised that I only had one coat in my whole […]

There is something to be said for a good coat, no?  I don’t know what happened but in the last 12 months this area of my wardrobe quadruped in size literally.  Perhaps it was the return of  nouveau-grunge laying or just the fact that I realised that I only had one coat in my whole […]

Elle Style Awards

It’s hard to believe but it’s now just on 4 years since I began Oracle Fox.  My very first workspace was probably similar to so many of you, a card-table sized desk facing a wall covered in aspirational tear sheets and magazine images.  Naturally based on the fact that I was still currently a visual […]

Sunday Sanctuary: Tiny Spaces

After spending the last 2 weeks in Paris in the heart of the 1st arrondissement you quickly grow a solid appreciation for space in terms of style.  Here’s some inspiration for anyone that has ever shared a tiny apartment with either one too many flatmates or speaking from experience anyone that’s ever rented a room […]

Spin Off

There is never an end to my love for the all in one monochromatic outfit, particular when it comes to layering knits and oversized coats.  Thank you L’Officiel you always deliver the most incredible inspirations .. model: Crista Cober  .  photographer: Laurence Ellis  .  L’Officiel October 2014 

Hello Mademoiselle

Bonjour, hello and how do you do!  From the banks of the River Siene I bid you a warm welcome and I’m sorry that I haven’t personally touched based in a little while.  You see .. it’s true what they say about Paris, it’s certainly a place where you can loose yourself,  just be sure that  it’s […]

The Debrief

A suitcase full of Saint Laurent, plenty of implied nudity and the perfect tasselled hair.  Thanks to  stylist  Tereza Ortiz and her fine eye for just the right balance of polished rock chic we’re totally feeling the vibes of this beautiful editorial, besides Hedi Slimane always seems to know what a girl wants ..

Into The Wild

Always one of my favourite combinations.. Anja Rubik working the autumn knits styled by Geraldine Saglio for Vogue Paris .. model: Anja Rubik  .  photographer: Lachlan Bailey  .  stylist: Geraldine Saglio  .  Vogue Paris

Dress Down

There’s nothing like beautiful a hit of black and white photography to get your week started .. model: Theres Alexandersson  .  photographer: Jesse Laitinen  .  S Magazine

Sunday Sanctuary: Concrete Jungle

Concrete and I haven’t always been friends, you see when I was young the road and driveway were responsible for countless grazed knees, sore arms and bike stacks. I’m not sure if it’s because I put the BMX away so many years ago, but somewhere along the line the painful memories have subsided and this industrial surface […]


Relaxed Spring vibes with easy styling and no fuss.  Thanks to the dream team of photographer Emily Abay, stylist Irina Martyn-Zyznikow and mega babe Anja Konstantinova magic will always happen ..


Torrents of storm swept seas hand painted in infinite detail on the grandest scale imaginable.  San Franfransisco born Alaskan raised Ron Ortner paints magnificently  moving images of the sea where boats are void and people are but a distant concept.  Ron’s heritage is reflective in the mountainous sea scapes highlighting  impossible nature and let’s be honest some […]

Street Cred

Artist Edgar Degas once said “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see”.  As a former fine artist I couldn’t agree more, there is something so magical about creating beauty from nothing with the simplest things like a pencil and paper.  Art and illustration have flowed always through my veins, much […]


Military jackets and tailored trousers, the perfect hit list items for a Northern Hemisphere winter .. model: Olga Rudnicka  .  photographer: Ward Ivan Rafik  . stylist: Darcy Backlar  .   Vamp Magazine No.2

Suit Yourself

I have a vague memory of a teacher I once had in high school who would wear suits to class.  As you can imagine it’s the kind of memory that is best left undisclosed, those slightly scarring double breasted power suits burnt into my mind.  Through time women and suits have had a love hate relationship, […]

The Weekend Muse

Only 2 more days until  the weekend so here’s a little inspiration to get you excited about the lazy sunday outfits and as you’re know we’re always a sucker for super babe Carolyn Murphy model: Carolyn Murphy  .  photographer: Dan Martensen  .  Muse Fall 2014 

The Enigma

If only my wardrobe could talk .. ohhhhh the secrets it would tell.  Stories of how at least once every year my closet gets so messy that you cannot see the floor, how some new things still hang with the price tags still attached, and even more embarrassingly how there has been the odd occasion […]

Sunday Sanctuary: The Little Cabin

   If you’re a pinterest lover you will recognise some of these beautiful photos and with much investigating I’ve been able to finally dig up the source.  The funny thing is that I always felt as though it looked like it might be an Australian home, there was just something that I couldn’t put my […]

Island Lux

Let me begin by divulging that even though it may not look like it, this trip for me was all about work.  No seriously I promise, there was a lot of late nights enjoying fine wine  working late on my computer, sweating under the cabana with a cocktail  from all the stress, and basically trying to make the most […]

The Faint Hearted

Those charcoal eyes and 60′s vibes, always a fan of Glen Luchford’s beautifully natural photography and let’s say no more about our girl crush on Anna Ewers.. model: Anna Ewers  .  photographer: Glen Luchford  .  Vogue UK October 2014
