Strictly black and white, today is Derby Day in Melbourne.

I write this jet-lagged from a hotel in Hong Kong, where my flight schedule sadly hasn't afforded me the opportunity to return to Melbourne in time to celebrate this always fashionable event.

To me, races is all about keeping true to your style, but with that little extra something. I'm beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to have teamed up with my favourite, The Outnet, and to share with you my Derby Day fashion.

It's all about classic shillouetes, with a modern twist.

Not normally a body-con fan, this Hervé Léger had definitely changed my stance - the scallop detailing and mini-length is the perfect statement white ensemble for the brave, and this Simone Rocha ball gown, truly is what dreams are made of.

With such statement fashion, I've opted for more subdued head-wear. This Lady of Leisure lace crown adds the perfect touch of elegance, and an embellished hair pin from my friends at Fiel Sol, along with a little netting creates a more dramatic look.

Given that I will be only celebrating Derby Day in spirit only, I think I definitely have the perfect opportunity to whip out one of these looks for Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, which I definitely will be in town to celebrate.

SUMMER IN THE GREEK ISLANDS

The Greek Islands - one of my favourite places on earth. 

I'd visited Santorini before, but this trip was my first visit to the islands of Mykonos and Naxos. 

Next, i'll post all my Greek Island travel tips, but I couldn't wait to share with you this beautiful dress, of local Greek label, Lucky Pig

I first came across Lucky Pig, in a great little boutique in Mykonos Town - Sotris. I tried it on, drawn in by the beautiful appliqué and immediately had to have it. 

One of my favourite parts of travelling has to be uncovering beautiful local brands and designers, which upon my return home, remind me of the beautiful memories I've experienced in any particular part of the world. 

My wardrobe is more and more starting to reflect the places I've visited and is a constant reminder of the amazing things I've been fortunate to have seen and people I've met.

NYFW STREET STYLE PART I





As New York Fashion Week draws to an end, I thought I'd share some of my favourite looks with you.

For me, my fashion week style is all about simplicity and ease - beautifully tailored pieces, complimented by the perfect statement accessories.

I can never go past a great white dress in the summer time, and these beautifully intricate earrings, by my favourite jewellery designer, Fiel Sol add the perfect touch of glam.

Day after day of running all across town, I've also quickly learnt the importance of a large statement bag - an extra pair of flats in between shows, subways and cabs is a godsend and a hot little tip of mine for getting through fashion week relatively unscathed.
