Kookai Spring Summer preview


Set within the stunning surrounds of the Como House gardens, we sipped champaign and ate a delicious brunch while models casually walked through and amongst us, showcasing Kookai’s fresh new spring summer collection. A palette of pop colour and crisp whites, in wearable shapes perfect for the races or any other Spring/Summer event.

Below are a few looks we loved both from the collection and also on the people in attendance.

Get excited Spring has definitely sprung. x

BELOW: “We loved Alexia’s layered spring palette of white and blue, the perfect look for any day event.”

ABOVE: “Another of the Kookai new season looks, it was lovely to see this classic white twin set, paired back with a pop colour/print clutch. This is proof that accessories make all the difference.”

BELOW: “We loved Lisa’s white on white look, the loose untucked shirt and pulled back hair makes for a sleek yet relaxed look.”

ABOVE: “Lisa’s look is perfect for an garden party. I loved the unusual colour palette and gold embellished accessories.”

BELOW: “Tiffany in tiffany blue, what a perfect combination. I really loved her open neckline, bare shoulders and her short cropped hair.”

ABOVE: “One of my favourite looks so far this season, I love the length and sophistication of Vydia’s dress. Not to mention the very on trend fringing detail over her shoulders.”

Caulfield Preview Day


Saturday saw the beginning of the Caulfield Cup carnival. Along with a few of our blogger friends, the lovely people from the Melbourne Racing Club, The Art Series Hotels, Nine West, Uber and Haystac we were definitely celebrating in style.

We starting the day at The Olsen hotel with a glass of champagne and a yummy morning tea hosted by Sherri Lee Biggs, the carnival’s social ambassador. We were talking, of course about all things races and fashion. As part of the morning we listened to fashion tips from the beautiful Lana Wilkinson and made flower crowns under the guidance of Tori Allen (although mine was a bit of an epic fail, unlike Emily’s and Lisa’s pictured below!) before Ubering our way to Caulfield racecourse.

Once trackside, we sat down for a delicious lunch in the committee room before a tour of what goes on behind the scenes on any race day. We stopped by the media room – my normal haunt- and had a chat with one of the jockeys, followed by a quick little punt before cheering on the horses from the mounting yard.

Now whenever I have been to the races previously I always hit the ground running, shooting all the fashion I can get my hands on. I’m normally in the media room downloading cards and sending images out to clients, so the idea of attending the races and actually sitting down at a table for lunch was a completely foreign concept for me, but I’m happy to say I made the most of it and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Below we captured some of our favourite looks and details from the day. xx

Spring has sprung and it is definitely time for thinking about fashion and wardrobe updates.

One of our fave Melbourne faces, Lisa from See Want Shop (here) always looks sensational, but we especially love her in this tonal grey outfit accentuated by her crisp white heels (here) from Nine West.

Do you love a white heel or crisp white sneaker as much as we do? x
