Gold class



Bomber jackets have been vaguely trending for about 4 years now, but in the past couple of months they have BLOWN UP. It seems like every store I walk by has a bomber on display in the window! I'm super into this gold satin version, part of a collaboration between Italian label Franklin & Marshall and Aussie DJ duo, the NERVO twins. I've also seen some super cute baby pink versions around... Hello, next purchase!

Caliente


DRESS: Maurie & Eve

I've been trying to wear more prints and colours this year, after realising my wardrobe of black and white basics made it look like I was always wearing the same outfit (which I am very careful not to do - I won't even wear the same hairstyle with the same people twice in a row)! This caliente dress from my beloved Maurie & Eve definitely fits the colourful bill. OlĂ©!

C'est geek


GLASSES: Oscar Wylee

So I've apparently read one too many scripts on my phone, because I finally found time to have an eye test and was told that I need glasses! Urgh, I almost burst into tears. But to be fair, the optometrist was very old, very strange and had a terrible bedside manner, initially telling me all was fine and then dropping the bombshell on me as I walked out the door. I only need them if I've been looking at my laptop or phone for a long time and my eyes feel tired, but of course I immediately rushed out and began a collection of glasses. I already have four pairs! A girl needs options, after all.

Star Trek Beyond premiere


DRESS: Sass & Bide

Events with thematic dress codes stress me out, because when the red carpet coverage is published, they don't actually share that there was a dress code in the first place! And there you are, dress code-appropriate, but peppered with comments like, "why is that idiot wearing a cowboy hat?" 
So the Star Trek Beyond world premiere I attended this week had a "futuristic" dress code. I went with this fly Sass & Bide creation - a little black slip dress draped in layers of black tulle, dusted with a silver glitter galaxy of stars. I happily left a sparkling trail in my wake; sorry to the theatre attendant who had to vacuum my seat! 
I'm not sure what I am allowed to say about the film, given that it won't be released for a few weeks... However, I can certainly reveal that the cast members who attended (John Cho, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban and Chris Pine) are a real bunch of babes. You heard it here first!
