Street Smith

I was lucky enough to shoot with Liz from Street Smith for Wittner shoes during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. I'm wearing Frushe in white leather from their current Sports Luxe collection, which you can shop here. 
I've loved the white on white trend which has been dominant for this Spring, so I styled this head to toe white look while also incorporating my favourite essential, stripes. The blazer, top and midi stripe skirt are from Bardot

Photos were taken by Street Smith and owned by Wittner shoes.

Chadstone Trend Edit

As mentioned in my previous post, Chadstone held their Spring Summer '14 trend edit with special guests Olivia Palermo and her husband Johannes. Joined by designers Jacqui Demkiw from White Suede and Helen O'Connor from Thurley, the group took us through their key looks for the new season.

Olivia mentioned how much she loves Australian designers, including Sass and Bide, Willow, Manning Cartell and of course White Suede and Thurley. Here is Olivia's Australian designer edit. She also mentioned the dress she wore for the Icons Of Style photoshoot was by Thurley, which was incredibly special for her since she was photographed by her husband.

The above four looks are all from Thurley Spring/Summer '14.
Every season Thurley offer beautiful feminine pieces, with Helen stating she loves to incorporate lace and embellishment details. The most interesting point was the feature for this last dress, she chose to use the trim as the main fabrication, creating a unique summer look.  

The above looks are from the White Suede Spring Summer collection, Architectural Wanderlust. Specialising in exclusive digital prints and structured pieces, White Suede always offer countless options for the party season. Jacqui explained her must have is stretch leather, with this being prominent throughout the range.

This year Olivia Palermo returns as the face for Chadstones Icons of Style, alongside her new husband Johannes. On Friday evening Chadstone hosted their Australian designer trend edit with Olivia taking us through her picks for the Spring Summer '14 season. I'll share further insights to the night in an upcoming post. 

During the interview, Olivia stated one of her key items is a blazer. Fortunately at the time I was wearing this crisp white blazer from Bardot. I was always fearful of wearing white in the past but I've realised it can be worth the risk and if chosen for the right events can magically stay clean. 
Note: Best not to wear white anywhere that involves alcohol.

Wearing: Bardot Tropez blazer, Wave top and pants. Lovisa necklace, Sportsgirl shoes and ring.
