It seems like us Melbournians just can’t escape from the old black and white. Do you know what? I just can’t leave it behind. There’s just so much of me that craves a sleek, all black and white outfit and I don’t think it has anything to do with the location I live in. I guess we may have a little predisposition to black and we are constantly surrounded by the elite in their stunning all black attire, but there’s something about it that is so mysterious. I love what black speaks. Everyone thinks that colours are what speaks and that yellow is for happiness, and green is for envy.
For myself, black just speaks something completely different and I love the way it makes me feel. I think it’s always a little bit different for everyone and some say mystery, some day edge and some say class. For me, it’s all of those. I love how every day is a mystery with black and you wouldn’t have a clue what someone is trying to speak but holy moly, don’t you want to figure it out?
Here, I’ve mixed textures of suede, leather and neoprene to tie it all together and I absolutely love this look! I used a few oldies that have been in my wardrobe for ages because they are simply stunning and make such a statement. I picked up this skirt from Witchery a while ago now and love how flattering the asymmetric hemline is for the body. Also, I still can’t get over how hot these shoes are by Skin Shoes! Expect to see these just a little bit more over the next few weeks because they are S T U N N I N G!
“Black is not sad.
Bright colours are what depresses me.
They’re so… empty.
Black is poetic.
How do you imagine a poet?
In a bright yellow jacket?

OMG – I am dying!!!
All these pieces are incredible and I wish I just had an unlimited bank account so I could buy these stunning pieces. My statement pieces here are the gorgeous tied up skirt and the heels! Who’s got a 3D printer so we can just put these in our wardrobe?
What’s your favourite piece?
Wherever you are in the world, being lazy is something that comes naturally to a few of us. I won’t say that I’m lazy by not doing anything all the time, but I’m certainly lazy in the sense that I always find the quickest way to get something done. I’ve definitely found the best way to save time and make getting out of the shower a good thing.
I started using Frank Body Scrub about two years ago. I was obsessed – I felt like I had become part of #thefrankeffect! Little did I know that this insanely popular coffee scrub revolution would lead to a revolution of my own.
One of Frank Body Scrub’s main ingredients (depending on which scrub you buy) is either almond or coconut oil. Both of these oils have intense hydrating effects and are my saviours almost every single day! We’re currently in an ‘arctic blast’ here in Melbourne at the moment so it’s just a little freezing outside. I am a culprit of putting the shower on really hot so when I get out of the shower, the bathroom is steamed up and just that tiny bit warmer. It’s probably not ideal but getting out of the shower in this weather just doesn’t seem like a great idea at the time!
If I can skip the step of jumping out of the shower, drying off, moisturising and then getting dressed – I will. So, that’s why I started to use Frank.
In my last few minutes of my shower, I grab some frank body scrub and lather it up on my skin. There’s no point putting it on for a second and then washing it off because then I would really be wasting my money. At least keep it on for a couple of minutes and then wash it off. Think about the amount of time you would spend moisturising yourself and spend that time letting the coffee scrub soak in. Pat yourself dry in the shower (so you keep warm) and then you are good to go and put some clothes on. I don’t even need to think about being cold because the transition from the shower to my clothing is just seconds with Frank!
What’s one of your secret shortcuts to getting ready quick?

There’s nothing worse than going out at night and trying to find that balance between “it’s freezing cold outside but it’s going to be hot inside and I don’t want to carry a jacket the whole night”
You’ll probably understand what I mean and it gets me every single time! I know that I always find myself freezing cold when walking to and from places but it’s a sacrifice that needs to be made. I’m always one to wear a crop top when going out or have my legs showing. It’s one or the other. To make up for my stomach freezing, I’ve grabbed this light fuzzy jacket by Shilla to help break the icy wind a little!
Not only do I go for a jacket – I make smart choices with the other pieces I wear. This crop is long-sleeved so that adds a little bit of warmth and I’m wearing real leather pants so these are great wind-breakers and keep me toasty warm! It just seems as though my stomach and feet will freeze. But, they are exceptions we can make when going out – right?
How do you keep warm when going out?
