Sportsgirl Loves House Of Holland

Iconic designer Henry Holland brought his label House of Holland to Sportsgirl for the latest collaboration, which dropped into stores earlier this month. Last week as part of LMFF Henry Holland himself launched the collection at Sportsgirl Bourke Street, discussing inspiration for the collaboration, London street style and being stalked at the airport by fans. 
Inspiration for this collection came from the idea of old ladies going to a rave, which came from Hollands love for how young women dress like old bag ladies especially on the streets of London. He also loves the way old grannies wear a mix of clothing from different generations creating their own unique style. Funnily enough on this day I was wearing a vintage coat from my Grandmothers closet, you can see here on my instagram account.
Even though inspired by old ladies, there is nothing dull about the collection. Full of patchwork prints and block colours. You can shop the collection now both in select Sportsgirl stores or online here.

Oh and did I mention the custom made Emma & Eve lollipops! You can now shop Emma & Eve online at www.emmaandeveonline.com or like the facebook page here.
For the day I wore a mix of metallic and floral, both pieces available from Sportsgirl

A Vineyard Wedding

A few weeks ago I attended a family member's beautiful wedding at a vineyard in the country. I wore this White Suede shift dress with a hot pink clutch, purple peep toes and Pandora rings. I finished off the look with bright pink lipstick and lilac nail polish. I wanted to bring the wonderful colours in the floral print out, the main reason I was first drawn to the dress. I had seen the same print featured on other garments on White Suedes instagram account and was so pleased to find it also came in this shift dress cut.

Sex & The City Style

This month Chadstone brings Sex and the City style right to you with an exhibition by costume stylist Patricia Field. Outfits from both Sex and the City films, plus a very special dress from the series were featured. I'm sure we all remember the episode in Paris, with Carrie wearing this Versace Couture dress. The exhibition will be at Chadstone until the end of March, in the luxury section so if you're in Melbourne make sure you head to Chadstone to have a look...seeing these in person is a must!
