Black Lace

    Wednesday 11th Dec 2013

    Me: I love wearing black lace. It’s so practical.
    You: Huh?!?
    Me: And did I mention versatile? Yup, really versatile.
    You: Um… ok…

    Let me explain…

    My wardrobe has 3 personalities:
    1. Work Me: tailored, feminine, practical
    2. Date Night Me: fun, whimsical, slightly impractical
    3. Mother Of A Toddler On A Playdate Me: fun, comfy and machine washable

    Black lace is a no-brainer for ‘Date-Night-Me’.

    It also makes regular appearances on ‘Work-Me’, say a black lace skirt with a white tee and a tailored jacket, or a lace shirt with tailored pants.

    Lately I’ve been noticing however that it’s been popping up on ‘Mother-Of-A-Toddler-On-A-Playdate-Me’ as well – sometimes a bra peeking out from beneath a singlet top, or maybe a camisole teamed with denim cutoffs. And all whilst still remaining fun, comfy and machine washable!

  • Prints are everywhere – graphic, floral, retro, animal.

    My favourite however would have to be the digital print. It’s like having a brand new box of crayons. This technology means designer can now incorporate virtually any artwork or image into their collections. Some of my favourites can be found at Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto.

    And so it was armed with this love that I styled todays fashion shoot, featuring some pieces from Ruby Sees Alls’s awesome acid print series.
