The Style Disruptor – By Alina B

I had a sensational styling session recently with Alina Berdichevsky. Here is what Alina had to say – Dressing oneself is an art where creativity reveals itself in several contexts. The art of knowing which colours work. The art of understanding proportions. And then, there’s the art of unexpected and striking combinations, where you really skirt the[…]

Brooch It!

Hello, I love a sparkling brooch pinned to an outfit, on a hat or even other jewellery. As you know I’ve always been a fan of brooches, styling women to add a cluster of brooches or pins as an alternative to a necklace. Truly individual. I’ve incorporated brooches before in Working It and A Modern Work Romance but I was inspired after reading[…]

Go A Little Bold In Spring

From this … To this … Keeping a little with the pink theme this week, this fabulous bold skirt is a wonderful spring party item. Here I’ve mixed patterns by combining stripes with this feminine paint splash print cardigan. Add nude colour shoes, clutch   and lovely long earrings to bring it all together nicely.[…]

Giving Black a Wrap

From this … To this … I consider the wrap dress the ‘magic’ dress: flattering, versatile and comfortable, it looks great on most body shapes. This fabulous find from H&M is perfect  for a day at the office and also attending a work event. I viewed this dress in the shop and was pleasantly surprised[…]

Wearing Black Differently to Work

Style at the Races

The 2014 Australian Spring Racing Carnival is close with the main race days starting in just under four weeks. For many, especially in Melbourne that means working out the outfit for the one or various racing events you’re attending. This post was so much fun putting together and took hours as I found so many[…]

Spring into Work

Spring is here for us in the southern hemisphere which means we can peel off the heavy clothing and start feeling lighter. This has to be one of the best times of year to do a wardrobe update and think about the warmer months ahead: especially in terms of work attire. Please see my spring[…]

Going Bohemian

According to the dictionary, the term “Bohemian” is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. The original Bohemians were travellers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohémien, for “gypsy”). I have loved this spirited, feminine style since I was a little girl and in fact was nick named “zingara” in Italian[…]

Working It!

“Style for the professional woman is an expression of her vitality, self-confidence, and power to superbly deliver her product, service, or philosophy in the marketplace.”  Women don’t have to turn away from their love of style to compete in the corporate world. Great style (combined with wit and intelligence) is an effective communication tool for women[…]
