When you go out for dinner with your girlfriends you want to make an effort because you know they will really appreciate it. Here I have styled the little black dress with some icy blue and silver accessories.
I have been living in Sydney but am soon moving back home to New Zealand and thought I would share some of my favourite Sydney fashion inspirations with you.
I have loved Rose Byrne as an actress since season 1 of the TV series Damages but have really noticed her style in the last couple of years. Her fashion choices are brave and her hair and makeup is always impeccable. Rose does work with stylist Penny Lovell but also styles herself for some events.
Sambag is the Southern Hemisphere’s answer to Repetto. Sambag ballet flats are available in a dizzying array of colours and fabrics, which makes choosing just a single pair very difficult.
I have featured Kerry Rocks before in this blog but it had to be included in this list. The flagship boutique on William Street in Paddington is a treasure trove of handcrafted, affordable jewellery. I just made a trip there to buy something special before I leave Sydney.
Rachael Ruddick’s luxury leather goods are amazing. I own one of her rings but a handbag or clutch are on my wishlist.
If you only had time to visit one store on a trip to Sydney, the Elizabeth Street location of this department store should be it. It is a one-stop shop for all your fashion needs with designer and chain-store clothing, handbags, shoes and jewellery.
For those of you who prefer a style that is more minimalist, Aussie model Jessica Gomes is one to watch. Jessica’s use of clean lines and simple hair and makeup lets her natural beauty shine through. Follow Jessica’s lead and let relaxed work for you.
Today I unexpectedly found these amazing, super-comfy sandals on sale at gorman and could not resist adding them to my summer wardrobe. I hope this inspires you to include a little neon in your day!

I will soon be going on a short holiday to enjoy the sun (and shops) and I really want to travel light. This got me thinking and I decided to pack my dream suitcase for a summer weekend away. I have selected some key pieces to take you from the pool to the shops to dinner and leave enough room in your suitcase for a few new purchases.
