Black pearl

DRESS: Talulah

Hello, dears! Excuse the dated language; this pearl trim got me feelin' all 1950s. I actually own three sets of real freshwater pearls - white princess length, black princess length and pink rope length - but I really struggle to wear them without feeling like a Stepford wife (THIS is the only time I can recall wearing any of them). How do you sweet peaches wear your pearls? I'd love to hear your hot tips in the Comments!

David Jones A/W 2017 Collections Show

DRESS: Rachel Gilbert  |  CLUTCH: Givenchy via Cosette  |  EARRINGS: Matthew Ely  |  RING: Matthew Ely  |  SHOES: Christian Louboutin (120mm version HERE)

Hey gang! This week, I attended the David Jones Autumn/Winter 2017 collections launch, feat. certified beb Karlie Kloss. I managed to get it vaguely together for the red carpet, despite torrential rain (like, literally there was rain falling on me in these photos) and the show went on inside a nice cosy tent. And now, we're back to insane heatwaves that mean my poor little dogs are currently panting in my face and begging for relief... Time for cold showers, ladies!

The white jean conundrum

TOP: The Fifth Label  |  JEANS: Dr Denim  |  LOAFERS: Ralph Lauren (similar HERE)  |  EARRINGS: Mimco  |  BRACELET: vintage (similar HERE)

White jeans can often be a tricky thing to style (my mum rarely wears them, thanks to the recurring image of Elizabeth Hurley sporting them in her particular way) so I chose to flip the look on its head with the addition of a masculine loafer, minimal jewellery and a high-neck black top - with some secret sassiness in the back. There's always room for sassiness.

Denim dream

DRESS: Boohoo  |  BAG: Boohoo (similar HERE)  |  SLIDES: Herm├Ęs (similar HERE)

Oh haaai new year! It's been so nice having a lil' social media break, but I'm sorry I neglected you guys! Now feast thine eyes upon me concealing a good portion of my body beneath heavy denim, because it is the last time you'll see anything of the sort for a good while. It is SO HOT in Sydney right now! I've been taking cold showers, only to find myself drenched in sweat by the time I finish my moisturising routine. But it does beat being cold, as I'm sure those of you currently procrastinating scraping the ice off your car windshields will agree!
