15/06/2015 by Styled By Francesca

Time and time again, I see ladies wearing leggings as pants. This is a big NO. Sure, they are comfortable and they are easy… but they are NOT pants. There is a time and a place for leggings, like wearing them to the gym. However, there are gym tights designed for this occasion. I know leggings are cheap, but we have such a huge range of gym gear out there for the same price of leggings, why would you? I recently purchased a great pair from Kmart for $15.00.

04/06/2015 by Styled By Francesca

Have you ever walked into an event or wedding and asked yourself the question. Did I get the dress code wrong? I know I have and quite frankly it can be a little embarrassing. I went to a wedding once and the dress code was FORMAL. Boy, did I feel as though I was the only one that got the memo. As a stylist, I believe that dressing for the code, is very important. Not only does it help you decide what to wear but it indicates, an expectation that invitee is setting on their guest. They are basically telling you what not to wear.

18/05/2015 by Maeve Bannister

Last year, I met a guy who, upon finding out where I was from said, “UGH! Canberra is the absolute worst.* It’s hot in summer and cold in winter.” Instead of dwelling on his strange idea of what exactly the weather is supposed to be (because, last time I checked, it’s actually quite acceptable that summer is hot and winter is cold), I’d like to focus on the last part of his statement, because he was quite right: Canberra is pretty cold in winter.
