This year, I adopted a more restrained approach to dressing for LMFF. Yearning for more order in my life, I’m particularly drawn to minimalist shapes, bold hues (OK, this is no surprise) and strong lines. Being a last-minute dresser, I’m terribly indecisive. So instead of spending time planning outfits, nowadays I merely rely on gut instinct. Pink has become almost a signature hue, so simply add some flounce, and here you have it: a frilly dress to
do housework in, attend a fashion event in. This Karen Millen cocktail number was my date for the Red Carpet Runway.

Have you noticed that I’m experiencing a Blue-and-White obsession? This photo was captured by my dear friend Jess. I wore blue and white ensembles 3 nights in a row at LMFF. See [HERE] and [HERE], people are going to think I’m Greek! It’s probably due to a long-suppressed desire. I rarely wore blue previously, except during high school days, and that was more navy than cobalt, so guess now I’m making up for lost time.

Just as Melbourne designer Jolet whose show at the Frankie runway charmed us with her sophisticated feminine allure, who later revealed to me that ‘Jolet has grown up!”, I think I’ve undergone some metamorphosis myself. More understated than quirky. I’d just attended a Fashion Forum about the Wool Renaissance, and without realising it, both my Roksanda Ilincic dress and this beloved Karen Millen cocoon coat are wool pieces. Here I teamed them with my Tilka necklace, Karla Spetic clutch, Edenborough Evans ring and YSL pumps. Just as blue and white is such a refreshing combination, who would know that lime and tangerine could be such a punchy pair!
