Give a frock Friday

Instead of a posting just one frock, this week I decided to give you multiple frocks! Some of them have been a little inspired by the season, but mostly they’ve been selected because they’re so pretty!  I know it’s winter here but you should never let that stop you from dressing in a frock. Layers, woolly tights and a great pair of boots can keep you nice and warm in a frock when it’s cool out. And don’t forget to top it off with a fabulous scarf!

   
       

Speaking of scarves, keep a lookout for my next post on my favourite wardrobe accessory!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I’ve been neglecting the latest season of GoT, I’ve been too busy watching the final season of Mad Men, and I will miss it, but I’m ready now to give Game of Thrones my full attention!  I will miss Mad Men though. Did I already say that?

I haven’t posted a frock for a while, but when I saw this earlier, it’s so beautiful, like Cinderella at the ball.

Tomorrow I am hanging out upside down at a yoga handstand workshop. After the week that’s been, I can’t wait to look at the world from a different perspective! You should try it some time 😉

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are.

Sofia Coppola has long since been a reference of style for me. Her subtle, elegant and effortless ease with how she dresses has always drawn my eye. I’ve been collecting images of her from way back, focusing on her style in one of my first Stylish Girl blogs back in 2009. I have been a fan of hers since her roles in her Dad Francis’s films Peggy Sue Got Married and The Godfather III. When she began to direct her own movies, my favourite being Lost in Translation, I’ve always felt she takes a delicate approach to her direction, which is distinctively Sofia. Some people have a way of allowing their style to infiltrate all that they do and Sofia is one of those people. Everything she turns her hand to is distinctively Sofia. The way she builds a character, to the way the camera pans the scene, to the music choices of the soundtrack, for me, there is always a reflection on her personal style – reflected in the cut of her clothes, the choice of colour or prints she wears, to the leather goods she designs for Louis Vuitton. All Sofia. Don’t you just love her?

So of course, this week’s frock Friday is dedicated to the one and only Sofia Coppola. Enjoy!

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.”… I wonder if Shakespeare would have compared his love to a summer’s day had he ever lived through an Australian summer? No, I’m not going to complain about the weather, but I will say this – dressing for humid temperatures in business attire is giving me loads of opportunity to put my past styling skills to the test. I’m loving spending more time scouring the op-shops (aka thrift shops) for work clothes. It’s been so much fun, I’ve even made a game of it – I use the last 5 minutes of my lunch break to find something for $5 – I call it speed-shopping!  Last weekend I went through every wardrobe in the house and I found a fab Marc Jacobs frock in a garment bag at the back of my wardrobe. As it was pouring rain today, I spent this afternoon watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Annabel and putting new buttons on it, and it’s now ready to go! Don’t you just love making something old look new again?

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!

The floor-length silk-chiffon empire line frock designed by Marc Jacobs goes so well with the Martin Margiela graffiti trainers – you know how I love it when stylists pair couture with runners! This image is from “The Long Story” shot by Corinne Day for Vogue UK, June 2002 and was styled by the irrepressible Kate Phelan.

As we settle into the New Year with ease and grace, have you kept to your intentions or resolutions so far? I have committed to 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene to get me back in the swing of my practice. I didn’t really let go of my daily practice over the Christmas break, but I felt it was a good opportunity to encourage myself (and others I hope!) to focus on a daily session with someone else guiding me to keep me headed in the right direction… I am working on keeping my authentic self at the forefront and I believe that showing up on the mat every single day for 30 days will contribute to achieving this goal. I’ll keep you posted! 😉

There’s so much to do these next two weeks as we prepare for our family road-trip south to Adelaide. We decided that it would be more fun to drive across three states to visit family for Christmas than to fly there. As the girls get more fractious as the end of the school year draws closer, I’m beginning to doubt our decision! I’ve been online looking for helpful road trip tips because I have vivid memories of my own road trips as a child, and while fun, there was also a lot of time spent fighting with my brother, hitting, pinching, picking on each other and doing our best to ignore each other while being stuck in the same car together less than a metre apart for hours on end! We had our headphones that we shared so we could listen to music, and eventually I even got my own ‘Walkman’. These days of course it’s a challenge to keep the kids from watching endless DVDs and playing games on their iPads. I have a plan though, which is to stop every two hours, get out of the car, do some yoga, throw a ball around with each other and get the blood moving about the body. That’s the plan anyway. I also plan to do a heap of baking so we have healthy snacks and don’t fill up on petrol station stodgy food and sugary treats. Again, this is my plan. Being on the road though, things are subject to change without notice!

Tonight it’s my first book club meeting since I quit while studying yoga teacher training, I’m so excited I get to be apart of book club again! I love this time of the year. It’s always crazy busy, but I think the Christmas carols in the stores and the twinkle lights everywhere help me get through it.

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you  are.

In memory of Oscar de la Renta, who sadly passed away late last month. He was the frock master, the go-to couturier for a fabulous event frock. Think Carrie in Sex & the City, the pretty pink frock The Russian gifted her for their date to the Met. In stead, I’ve chosen this flamenco inspired frock for today’s post, worn here by model Angela Lindvall and photographed by Arthur Elgort. Oscar was influential in dressing many of Hollywood’s leading ladies, and also the odd White House first lady. “My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best.” He will be missed.

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!
