What to Wear When it’s Cold & Wet

What to Wear When it's Cold & Wet #1

Hello August, the third and final month of Winter. The weekend just gone, the forecast maximum for Melbourne on Saturday was 11C and rain. It was grey, cold and icy. Last night's forecast for the coming week is for more of the same. I don't know about you, but sometimes, I've totally found my Winter fashion groove by August. I know exactly what will work and have no trouble putting … [Read more...]

Striped Tops & Dresses from Luxe to Less

Striped Dresses

Well, we are certainly in between seasons as far as fashion goes. Retailers know we're not quite ready for Spring fashion yet (especially here in the southern states) but high Winter has well and truly come and gone. And that's why the stores are suddenly full of very excellent basics for trans-seasonal dressing. I'm talking long sleeved tees, jeans and denim skirts, simple blouses and … [Read more...]

Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes at a Professional Photo Shoot

My Professional Photo Shoot


Recently, Mr SnS decided he needed some new head shots (professional photos) for his blogs and other work bits and bobs. He approached the fab Gina Milicia, who he has worked with before, to take a few snaps. It's been on my radar to update my head shots for a while - I was inspired by my bloggy pals Styling You and Sonia Styling's recent shoots and, as much as I loved my previous head shot, … [Read more...]

Posh Trackie Dacks from Luxe to Less

Posh Trackies from Luxe to Less 2

The humble tracksuit pant has had a noughties makeover. Now, instead of your old school fleecey numbers, you'll find trackies coming in all sorts of guises. I'd even go so far as to say that trackies have gone a bit, well, posh. There are trackies with drawstring waists and a cuffed or ribbed hem. In a modern print (hello leopard) perhaps or even a knit with a tapered leg. Or they … [Read more...]
