Evening Outfits: Cooper Street Amazon Dress

Evening outfit Cooper Street Coral Dress

I’m not quite sure how to describe this colour. Stronger than coral, but softer than tangerine, it’s something in between. But anyway I love the colour and the casual elegance of this evening dress. And I particularly love the statement cuffs with their little strip of sequins, and old world fabric button and loop closure. […]

Dress of the Day: Deep Sea Date Dress

Deep sea date dress front

This cocktail dress certainly looks beautifully cut, and with 34 customer reviews averaging 4 stars, it must be a winner. It’s a modern navy, that is, not so dark it looks black, but dark enough to highlight the strong tailoring of this style. The beads on the shoulder add some colour and fun, without detracting […]

Dress of the Day: Black Zanzibar Maxi Dress


Totally relaxed, yet really elegant, this black maxi dress is so versatile.

I love the brown leather trim around the […]

It could easily move into Autumn of course, […]

Halloween Inspiration: Beautiful, Black and Bewitching

Mortica black dresses

OK so it’s Halloween today. I’m one of those Australians who are very reluctant to jump on the Halloween bandwagon. It’s tacky and overly commercial and we just don’t have a sense of the tradition here. America, different story. But not here. However, there is something really cheeky about this little round up from Boohoo.com […]
