Style: 11.7.15 Reinventing An Old Dress

Dress by Alice McCall, top by Kookai and clutch by Oroton.

Just a quick post today as I really wanted to share an outfit that I wore a few weekends ago to my cousin’s engagement party. While I’m normally proficiently organised when it comes to these special events, for some reason the weeks had just slipped by. Before I knew it the day had arrived and still there was no outfit!

So I decided to run with this dress I had worn just the once to a horse racing carnival a couple of years back – only I couldn’t resist adding a little twist! While it was sunny, the weather was still chilly which meant extra coverage was ideal. Inspired by a previous layered look, I kept the top I had on and threw on this playful pink piece in a heartbeat!

… and this was the result!

Style: 20.6.15 Clever Cover Up

Jumper by Kookai, pants by Ted Baker, bag by Lois Vuitton and shoes by Cole Haan.

Like a hat on a bad hair day, a jumper (a.k.a. sweater or pull over as one might call it in the northern hemisphere) is my remedy for those hair-pulling ‘I have nothing to wear days’ or if you’re anything like me when it comes to laundry ‘those every things in the wash days’!

Whatever the reason, it’s on these occasions that I’m ever so thankful to whoever invented this clever cover-up that disguises even the oldest (possibly the holiest!), faded tees and tops! Paired with a smart pair of pants and a classic bag (this was a 21st Birthday gift from granny – the only woman I know who’s managed to evade aging for the last 30 years!), like throwing the mess under a rug, it’s as if that frenzied morning never happened!

Short and sweet for today’s post! Don’t forget to share your tips and tricks for looking chic on those ‘bad wardrobe day’ moments!
