August in December

As soon as Sydney’s weather gets a grip, I’ll be unleashing the sports luxe versatility of this baby onto unsuspecting beaches, hipster cafes, and New Year’s Eve parties.


Since Zanita and I shared our tropical luxe editorial with the world, a good number of you have asked to see more snaps of this August St dress of mine. And who am I to deny you a perfect Summer day-to-night green dream? As soon as Sydney’s weather gets a grip, I’ll be unleashing the sports luxe versatility of this baby onto unsuspecting beaches, hipster cafes, and New Year’s Eve parties. No makeup, leather cap and an enormous Margiela shopper would tick all boxes for chic grocery aisle surfing. In this instance, some ear bling insanity peeking out from my favourite Thailand pardise hairstyle, a flick of black across each eye and a stain of dark lipstick is the insanely comfortable Grace Kelly factor you’ve always wanted (without the Grandma coif potential). With a smokey eye, nude lips and a choppy bob (may or may not be foreshadowing for my haircut this week), everyone will be looking at you instead of the midnight fireworks.

And that’s all you really need in life (aside from breakfast – you need breakfast).

I’ve also been getting a lot of questions from you all about holiday and occasion dressing, so rest assured I’ll be getting my GlamCorner on on your behalf – with a demonstration, obviously. So grab a coconut, follow me on Instagram, and join me in my baffled musings as to how it came to be December.

It happens every year. I never did figure out where time goes. Probably to the Shopbop Sale.

Time to watch the last Lord of the Rings with Alex! Yes I’m a decade behind. Yes I’m extremely disappointed with Harry Potter now – my whole childhood. Plagiarised!
