The Sun Visor

    Thursday 16th Jan 2014

    I’m a fan of the top-knot. It’s my go-to hairstyle.

    But I’m faced with a recurring dilemma – how does one incorporate sun protection and a really cute fun-bun?

    Enter: Stella McCartney (all dramatic and super-hero like) with her fab straw visor that is all-chic and not one little bit Kylie-Minogue’s-first-album-cover…

    Fiona Kowalski

    Friday 27th Dec 2013

    Fiona Kowalski is the warm, funny, super-stylish founder of children’s clothing label Printebebe (pronounced print baby) – an adorable collection printed smock dresses, blouses and bloomers.

    Her career has seen her travel full-circle, starting out as a designer then moving into the role of fashion editor and stylist for many years in Hong Kong, New Zealand, London and Australia. It was the birth of her daughter Gidget (now 2) however, that inspired her move back into designing.

    “I started Printebebe because I wanted to create affordable children’s clothing that was pretty and easy to wear. It has been fun, more hard work than I ever imagined, but so rewarding too”.

    The Cropped Pant

    Thursday 14th Nov 2013

    I love a cropped pant. Fashion designers call these a 7/8 pant (no science here – they’re just that little bit longer than a 3/4 pant). They look really great and are so versatile, working equally well with heels as they do with flats and sneakers (no frantic, running out the door, last minute hem adjustments required).

    The trick to pulling this off though (and not looking dumpy) is all about proportions.

    Your pants must be a straight and slim (but not too tight) cut, so that the diameter of the hem on your pant is around half the length of your shoes (hence narrower hems work better with heels). The crop also needs to allow around a 5cm gap from the bottom of your pant hem to the top of your shoes, for that perfect pant to exposed-ankle ratio.

    The White Handbag

    Wednesday 13th Nov 2013

    The black handbag is a no brainer. Everyone has one. It’s just a matter of updating it every couple of years.

    But now it’s time to to take a new look at the white handbag. While not new to the scene, it has recently been upgraded from ‘novelty’ to ‘essential’. This promotion makes perfect sense really – with the fashion world’s current flirtation with all things white, cream and pink.
