The little black fringe dress

Hi fashionsistas!

My newest obsession: the fringe trend!

I think that I have gone a little crazy with it though… in addition to this perfect little black dress, just last week I purchased three other fringe pieces: a bag, a t-shirt and a jacket. Don’t worry you’ll get to see them all soon...

How to wear a mini skirt

Hello my fashionsistas!

If you have been hanging out here at Not a Model for a while, then you would know by now that sometimes I like to push the limits and be a little daring…Remember that sheer shirt with that bra?!

I thought I would set myself the little challenge of wearing a super short mini skirt during the day. I decided to style it with a slightly oversized - yet tailored - white shirt, I think the length of both the mini skirt and the white shirt really compliment each other, and if the skirt were any longer I don’t think the shirt would have worked so well...

Hello yellow!

Hello my fashionsistas!

Let me start by saying that I never used to wear yellow at all.

Okay, maybe I wore a yellow dress once…in Mykonos…in 2004 (Gasp! So long ago)!

I really used to feel that yellow was only appropriate during summer on the Greek Islands when I was rockin’ an enviable tan along with the perfect beach hair, and come normal everyday life I thought yellow just didn’t compliment me at all..

How to style overalls and actually look hot

Hi fashionsistas!

I was once asked how to style overalls and as I hadn’t worn overalls since I was a kid, it wasn’t really an outfit combination I would put together nor be able to dish out some style advice on, but it seems the overall trend is here to stay for a little while so I went on the hunt for the perfect pair to add to my wardrobe. I wasn’t personally into the trend but must say but I have warmed up to it a little...

Denim on denim outfit

Hi fashionsistas!

Denim on denim outfits came into trend a couple of years ago and it has stuck. At first I wasn’t a huge fan of it, I used to see a lot of dark denim on denim outfits which wasn’t really my thing but as brands started to embrace this trend and there was more variety of styles and colours I started to wear it more often...

Innerwear as outerwear: The sheer shirt & a Marlies Dekkers Bra

Hi fashionsistas!

If you’ve been reading my blog for some time now, you know that I have a thing for transparent clothing - I always find myself reaching for lightweight and delicate fabric pieces when shopping, so it’s no surprise that half my wardrobe is more suitable for night time rather then bright sunny days.

I also have a love for beautiful statement bras and today I thought I’d take a little risk, and wear my sheer shirt with an edgy Marlies Dekkers bra…during the day! To tone down this outrageous look I styled it with a modest skirt that’s feminine and compliments the sheer shirt and bra rather than clashing...

Summer outfit for a busy day!

Hello my fashionsistas,

Last week was really crazy – between errands, meetings and social stuff I honestly don’t know where the week went! 

I shot this look on Thursday and it was sooooo freakin’ hot, we haven’t even reached the middle of Summer yet. Thankfully I spent most of the day in my car with air-conditioning driving from meeting to meeting, which is why I opted for a relaxed summer outfit...

What to wear to a wedding?

Wedding guest outfit inspo!

Hi Fashionsistas!

 Well, another weekend has passed and another wedding was attended! This wedding was during the day so a little more laid back, hence my outfit choice!

It was such a lovely afternoon, the sun was out and there was a nice little breeze near the water too – perfect day for a Summer Wedding...

Formal jumpsuits for weddings - a debate!

Hello my fashionsistas,

Just a quick outfit post I wanted to share with you today of a houndstooth jumpsuit I wore to a wedding recently.

I felt this was a really appropriate outfit; I had several lovely comments on how it looked very formal and perfect for a wedding but I was having a bit of a debate with one of my friends, who disagreed that jumpsuits are not a suitable outfit choice for a wedding – I think she must have a dislike for jumpsuits in general, and a little too much like much for Champagne...

Spring outfit for a picnic

Hi Fashionsistas!  

Nothing feels more like spring than a day spent at a beautiful park on a picnic! 

I think I found the most perfect spring outfit. I know you are all probably thinking to yourselves, why on earth is she wearing heels to a picnic??? I’m going out for drinks and dinner after the picnic so will take my shoes off while at the park - walking barefoot on grass is really good for you...

Sydney Fashion Festival

Hi Fashionsistas,

Last week the team at Maybelline New York invited me to Mercedes Benz Sydney Fashion Festival, which is a mini version of autumn winter fashion week everywhere else in the world. It was so wonderful to see the latest collections from some of Australia’s well established designers as well as some designers who are on the rise...

White jeans outfit with a tee

Hi fashionsistas,

The last two days have been nice and sunny which meant I could finally put a white jeans outfit together.

I love pairing a casual white on white outfit with black. I rarely wear t-shirts with printed statements, but this t-shirt reminded me of the famous quote ‘you were born and original, don’t die a copy’ and I believe that you are born limited edition...

Transparent dress & cocktails

I’m a really big fan of transparent clothing — but not in a trashy way! I love delicate fabric and when a fabric is delicate it's usually light-weight and sheer. I’ve just counted 10 pieces in my wardrobe that are purposely sheer, and 10 that by boyfriend often tells me he can see right through if I wear them during the day - I even do transparent accidentally...

How to wear vertical stripes

I recently posted some tips to wearing a horizontal stripe dress, and in that post I mentioned that horizontal stripes are safer and more flattering compared to vertical stripes, which got me on the hunt to find the perfect vertical stripe dress. 

I think the fashion gods were on my side last weekend, I found this dress as soon as I started shopping so I was very happy and even came home with a new pair of shoes which I am also wearing in this outfit post.

Tweed bomber jacket love

Ever see an outrageous yet amazing outfit that you just can’t get off your mind? 

Story. of. my. life! 

I saw this little tweed suit whilst on my way to lunch in Double Bay last week, I did a double take at the window (just like in Midnight Blue Serendipity) and then immediately went back to the store after lunch to get it because I could not stop thinking about it - another story of my life!

How to wear a horizontal stripe dress and not look like an Oompa Loompa

I personally love stripes, I’m a huge lover of the classic French sailor tee but I think a lot of women are afraid to wear stripes as they can sometimes be too loud and even unflattering - especially if they are vertical and wide apart! This horizontal stripe dress I’m wearing today is loud and the split also makes it a little sexy, but what is most flattering about it is...
