I’m so glad that you all loved the look I styled from the Ksubi store at the Intersection, so as promised, here is the full series as shot by Jysla and styled by yours truly:
This ELLERY jacket was a no-brainer the minute I walked into the store. I love the contrast sleeves, buttery soft leather, boxy cut and wide lapel for a pseudo-boyfriend, almost sporty result. These trousers with the opposite leather trim on each ankle are just as ridiculously comfortable – how they managed to be breezy and toasty warm at the same time is beyond me!
After chatting to Aurora at Camilla and Marc, she brandished a range of shift dresses – she was wearing this one belted at the time, and once it was on, I didn’t want to take it off. I know a lot of people avoid the shift shape for its simplicity (and because I’d probably see my mother in one), but this one is so flattering with little things that make you look twice. The pink side-stripe, for example (and there’s one on the opposite shoulder). I was brainstorming all the ways I could wear the piece as soon as I walked out – over leather pants, under a navy cape…
I wasn’t about to pair anything with this beauty of a Ginger & Smart dress. The shorter dress in the same print is just as sweet, but I thought I’d try something new and flirty in a slightly-longer-than-midi length. The vintage idea behind the dress is so well executed – not too mumsy and sharp enough to wear with blazers and killer heels, but just as easily worn with an oversized cable knit.
Sass & Bide has always been a favourite of mine in admiring embellishment and beautiful prints, but I’ve never been inclined to actually pull a whole look together. I adored these two pieces in that they were more on the basic end of the spectrum of Sass & Bide, but still very much familiar in their tailoring and baby-soft fabric. They knew I couldn’t resist a good wide-legged pant!
And of course, dear Ksubi (which I’ve already told you all about). Jysla was dubious when I exited stage right to pull on these oversized jeans, but the result was exactly the balance of comfort and sharpness that I’d envisaged. I can’t get my head around the excellence of these sunnies. Who even thought of that genius silver line. So good.
So hope you all enjoyed that! Be sure to check out the little profile that The Intersection did on me on their blog!
I’m off to Melbourne for the day – let’s not miss my flight now! More on that later.
