outfit

anchor

Wearing: ASOS white blouse, The Rodnik Band ‘Anchor Print’ jacket, Quirky Circus skirt, Miu Miu sunglasses, Vanessa Mooney ‘Sweet Antiquity’ necklace, vintage bag and Gorman boots {Photos: Tom}

White and blue, an easy fail safe combination that I sometimes find myself reaching out for on those days when you have to get dressed in the dark. I wore this last week to the LMFF Business Seminar – a full day event hosted at the Sofitel Grand Ballroom where I learnt a wealth of knowledge regarding business and fashion from speakers from around the world. One of the highlights of the day was hearing Mary Katrantzou speak. I was so happy to hear she’d be in Melbourne for LMFF as I have always been a major fan of her crazy out of the world digital prints printed on equally crazy dress silhouettes. Hearing about her humble beginnings and how she has gone down the path to where she is now at such a young age was very inspiring. Her collection for Topshop this time last year sold out so very fast and I remember falling in love with this dress of hers in store (not for long) before it quickly went out of stock. Something I know I’ll be forever dreaming of despite it being very unlikely it will ever land in my hands!

    I’m a big fan of Mary K myself. Anyone who can take a picture of yellow pencils and turn it into such an amazing digital print is just ridiculously talented! Her latest collection was simply divine, would love to own a little piece of Katrantzou one day.

    p.s. those green boots are stunners!

    I love your Mui Mui sunglasses! I’ve been dreaming of them since you posted on instagram. I also love this anchor print jacket mixed with the dotted skirt. You always look so chic!

      i love them too! i searched high and low for this particular style – for some reason they arrived in australian stores before european stores so when i was there some stores hadn’t even gotten them in yet. thankfully i managed to find a pair at miu miu in venice :’-)
