    Are you a lover of COS?

    This is of course a rhetorical question, as I’ve yet to meet anyone to the contrary!

    In Sydney recently to celebrate the opening of their new store at 5 Martin Place, I was lucky enough to catch up with their lovely Head of Women’s Wear Design, Karin Gustafsson.

    So, as a slightly different take on ‘In Her Wardrobe‘, I asked Karin to fill us in on what inspires her, fashion lessons learnt and what every woman needs in her wardrobe.

  • I’ve loved homewares label, Pony Rider from afar for many years.

    Designed and developed in Australia, they manage to so perfectly encapsulate, through collections of cushions, bedding, canvas and wall art, their love of roaming ranges, vintage patterns and all things earthly.

    So, armed with my new mission to plunder the address books of clever, talented and charming women, I asked Pony Rider’s creative director and owner, Kelly Searl to tell us her hometown ‘Shortcuts’.

    Want to know where Kelly heads to for flowers, homewares, cocktails and so much mooore??

  • Recommendations – they’re the stock and trade of stylish sorts.

    Indeed, it’s why I started Shortcuts – it’s hectic out there and we’re all busy, so any well edited advice from trusted sources is always well received.

    And so, whilst hanging out with notable stylish-sort, Louella Tuckey we got chatting about her favourite outfit…

    “I found these jeans on a trip to CottonOn (to go through our homewares products with the store staff) and I’ve been living in them ever since. My god they’re super comfy and such a crazy good price – might have to buy more!

    The jacket is a new one from Bassike and such a lovely cut (clever Deb x)

    Spring Courts are my new found favourite winter footwear (I never hide my toes in summer, nude feet is the rule) from Lee Mathews
