The Bottega Veneta Way

An audible gasp could be heard from the OF office when images of the very first collection by Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta was released to the public. The Pre-Fall 2019 collection was strong yet feminine and the kind of wardrobe that most girls .. my team included.. could imagine themselves wearing .. Bottega Veneta staff uniforms?

Mystic Woman

Someone once said ‘you can tell a lot about a woman by the bag she carries’.  Well in this instance it’s more about how she carries it and a bag this good can be worn in more way than just one .. Givenchy ‘Mystic’ Bag  .  Jumpsuit: The Frankie Shop  .  Black Boots with Crystal

Game of Tones

  With all the Game Of Thrones hype over the past few months, it’s no wonder it’s been a hot topic of conversation in our office (don’t worry, I promise there will be no spoilers in this post). However, also high on our discussion agenda has been a variation on the theme, that of the

Into The Mystic

  Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019 was a something of a minimalists dream… A collection built upon the foundation of making an elegant statement, but without excess or surplus. Each piece perfectly considered and beautifully balanced. For this collection Clare Wight Keller drew inspiration from Greek Mythology and in particular the story of Icarus, a pairing that

The Right Angle

       If I was to describe my approach to personal style ‘fashion curious’ may be the most fitting answer. Like many of us, when something new enters the fashion zeitgeist, it becomes somewhat of an obsession and I get to work researching any previous iterations of a trend, and how new found versions are being

Serendipity

Sometimes inspiration does not come from the obvious, but from a personal perception, the fragrance of Autumn abandoning her leaves or a serendipitous moment like wandering along a London street and stumbling across such unexpected beauty as an antique art stall.  I just thought this was heaven, so much so that I may have gone a little

The Feeling is Neutral

Are you a creature of habit? I can admit that there are some things that I can’t stay away from…let’s see, Victoria Beckham’s youtube videos, hummus ice-cream and of course more to the point in this scenario, neutrals.  That’s right friends, you might have noticed that my love of ice-cream has had an influence on

Cloud Nine

There are statement bags, and then there are statements. I guess you could say that this particular piece enthusiastically ticks both of these boxes.  Equal parts perfect design and fluffy cloud, this Maison Margiela piece of art, aptly titled the Glam Slam Bag, has been working its way into my mind since first laid eyes

A New Wave

I like to keep it on the down-low but I do like to surf, not just the net but in the ocean on a surfboard, the original form of surfing.. the saltier kind. Films like Bill and Ted’s excellent adventures conjure images in ones head of shaggy haired grommets rambling off catchy one liners about

The Channel

In a year that saw the return of the black bike short in a major way, an element which is equally important when channelling this lewk is the right accessory  or two.  Which lets be honest is always my favourite part .. lol. So you may ask, what is the most ideal accessory to pair with

Detail Orientated

  As a wise man once said .. ‘The devil’s in the details’.  This year I’m working on the fine tuning.  After nearly 9 years in this industry and growing a love of all things sartorial that even I never knew that I could harbour, it’s time to drill down to the details baby.  Like

Of Her Own Accord

Welcome to 2019 my lovely friends.  If you’re anything like me you usually write a list of New Years resolutions at the beginning of the year that includes things like exercise more, drink less Prosecco and save … sound familiar? Well this year is going to be there year of change, I’ve made a list

The Valentino Destination

I bet you thought that Christmas was only about one red bag and that was Santa’s.  Alas my dear friends there is another red bag on my wish list and it is this little baby from the magnificently timeless Valentino. And although it may sound like I’m here to chat about the glory of a

Charles & Keith

To all the minimalists and monochrome lovers out there, I’m sure you will agree that while our love of everything holidays and christmas is strong, perhaps the the traditional red and green palette has never really been our vibe… Sometimes the more pulled back approach ticks all the right boxes. So to all my fellow

The Right Kind Of Frosting

 Despite my obsession with Kate McCallister’s wardrobe (the mum from Home Alone, ps. take note of those ridiculously good power shoulders), we’ll be leaving the ugly christmas knits off the wish list around here this holiday season.  Sadly the flashing christmas tree earrings and tinsel trimmed mini skirts will also be given a wide birth,

Polka Face

Every cinderella has her glass slipper and every fairy tale should have a happy ending.  Four months ago I saw this magical heel on Ada Kokosar’s instagram and I could have happily swapped my night in shining armour for this baby along with all of my vital organs. If you don’t really know Ada it’s

A Worthy Investment

Throughout out lives our parents have always shared advice and passed on their favourite pearls of wisdom. You know the drill; If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all, use your manners, eat your vegetables. But something that has always stuck with me is advice my dad gave me many

The Battaglia Effect

It may just be a coincidence or perhaps even fate, but something was drawing me to Italy and it wasn’t just Venice. Sara Battaglia might be Giovanna Battaglia’s little sister (Editor in chief of Italian W mag and more infamously credited as being one of the worlds most papped street style stars) but she is

Saddle Up

Argh the 90’s and 00’s, t.b.h they might just be our favourite era’s to reference in the style stakes, think pre-Brad Pitt Angelina, Wynona Ryder circa ‘Reality Bites’ and Chloe Savigny’s early 2000’s tomboyish charm.  But for this girl and the O.F team one of our favourite icons of the era was the Dior Saddle

Public Displays Of Affection

OK friends, let’s be honest here .. it may have become quite clear that after several years I’ve come to realise what my best assets are, and putting this funny face at the front of every image I shoot is not one of them.  I know it may seem harsh or even as though I

A Need For Tweed

Why is it that we’re all so suddenly in love with tweed?  Could it be that through our love of cult instagram account @tasteofstreep that our obsession for Meryl Streep’s plaid ensembles teamed with Tiramisu has tantalisingly left us with a taste for more?  Or is it something more tangible and related to Alessandro Michele’s Gucci

Shape Up

I’m fully aware that I’m not the most lady-like ‘eh-hem lady’ that you’ve ever met.  With a track record of tomboyish behaviour when it comes to dressing (stealing dad’s cardigans included) this girl-slash-boy tends to shy aware from the overly pretty. However why would you cut off your nose to spite your face and when

The Go-To

It’s midweek and I’m feeling informal, for me this means tagging my best friends into cat memes, reggae in my car on the way to the coffee shop, unbrushed hair, and jeans with tweed my lazy day reliable go-to. Let’s not give up all together here though right?  A girl working in fashion needs to

Venice Film Festival With Vogue Australia

It only feels like yesterday but last September during a run of perfect italian autumn days, I was lucky enough to attend the Venice Film Festival as a guest of the beautiful Jaeger-LeCoultre. An invitation to travel to a dream city for an adventure such as this was of course accepted with endless amounts of grateful enthusiasm…

The Long & The Short Of It

Today we’re going to talk about proportions… and no you heard me right not portions (I’ll will definitely have fries with that), but proportions as in ratios in the fashion sense. Where once you would have caught me gloating that wouldn’t catch me dead in mini skirt past the age of 22, I’ve now changed

In the lightning speed world of fast fashion,  I’ve become increasingly obsessed with a desire to search out the relatively unknown .. and I’m not just talking about latest section on Topshop here friends.  Don’t get me wrong a girl still needs her shot of Gucci-mania goodness but sometimes it’s nice to sniff out the
