Adoration: Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant, my absolute favourite designer of ALL time....seriously! 

Here are my favourite looks from her latest collection which has taken my breath away and I must have. It's safe to say I'm buying some of these pieces as they are classic, black and timeless therefore worth the spend!! 

Also as winter is fast approaching Melbourne I am opting for a monochrome wardrobe of black and white this winter with the occasional injection of greys as this has become one of my favourite colour palettes for Melbourne's winter season.


Date Ready

Wish Reverse Jumpsuit/ Ray Ban Aviators/ Tony Bianco Heels

Dating at the best of times can be tricky, let alone THE first date outfit. 

I like to wear something simple yet classic as you are still getting to know the person and it's better to be neutral like Switzerland than go in, in a blaze of glory all tizzed up and over done or worse under dressed and too casual! 

Melbourne is full of so many great restaurants, bars and outdoor events that getting the right outfit can sometimes be a challenge. Try and find out where you are going first and then plan from there. 

I find it is always best to stay true to your style when going on a first date but with a slight twist. If you regularly read my posts you will know that I prefer ripped denim, rocker tees and lots of leather. Now this I would still wear on a first date, but I will tailor it to suit the environment I'm going too, ie. I don't think ripped denim with my knees hanging out are appropriate for a fine dining restaurant! 

The wish reverse jumpsuit is a perfect choice as a first date outfit. It's black (my favourite colour), classic, but still edgy with a backless feature making it easy to take from dinner to dance floor and it suits every body shape with it's always flattering wide leg pant. Add a leather jacket to it and I have my rocker vibe.....still. 

Remember when on a first date it's always important to be yourself, not too available, laugh, have fun and always have a backup plan with a girlfriend if you need to do a runner! Lol ;) 



Like a Rabbit

Wearing: Sportsgirl Muscle Tee/ Junk Clothing Denim Shorts/ Jeffery Campbell Boots/ Le Specs Sunglasses

Lunch with the girls can be interesting, especially if your like me and have a diverse group! My girls are the best and I love spending time with them.
Lunching with them involves somewhere relaxed with music, an extensive wine list and most importantly amazing food! Living in Melbourne we are spoilt for choice, which comes to my second statement, sometimes my 'girlfriends' can be also be 'guy friends' as I have equal amounts of both, so I am always accommodating to both sexes! :) 

Dressing for this occasion is simple for me....something comfortable and edgy but something I can also dress up with the quick heeled boot or block heel, taking me from daytime into night (thats how long our lunches can go for!) 

Denim shorts are perfect for this type of 'lunching'  as they are casual and comfortable and easy to match with a basic tee (I am all for basics, I'm their #1 fan!) 
Mixing prints is fine, but I tend to opt for a basic during the day and when I'm out for lunch as Melbourne has a relaxed feel, especially during summer. 

Black is my colour of choice as if I spill anything on it I can sneakily rub it in and not look like a mess for the remainder, haha (We have ALL done it once or twice....or thrice in my case) 

So ladies, my 3 basic/failsafe tips for lunches in Melbourne are;

                                                  1. Always take into account what type of place you are going to (Google is your 'bestie')
                                                  2. Dress for your comfort
                                                  3. Smile, laugh and never eat like a rabbit
