Tartan Tales

The Fashion Vault captured Ross looking rather dapper in New Acton.


Fresh from the races. Ross was wearing a three piece suit custom made on his travel in Thailand.

What caught our eye was the pop of colour in his bow tie. This fascinating piece was purchased in Antartica, making it a very special and unique accessory.

This particular tartan was designed to represent the colours of the polar region by Ros Jones Mull.


Sports luxe meets Audrey

Taylor Perrin, freelance makeup artist, was spotted by The Fashion Vault over the weekend.


It comes as no surprise that Taylor references Audrey Hepburn as one of her style icons. That classic flair just oozes from her outfit. Taylor also loves drawing style inspiration from celebrity trends.


The look we captured mixes sports luxe and femininity.


“I often mix sports luxe and feminine styles because I love to feel super-comfortable whilst still looking cute and fashionable,” said Taylor.


We heart Taylor’s quirky take on the classics!


Fashionable Farmer

The Fashion Vault spotted local farmer, Pattianne Marsh, walking through NewActon.


This stylish lady from Milton was visiting Canberra for the Tom Roberts exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia.


Pattianne's style is smart-casual with a balance of structure and flow.


For Canberrans visiting Milton, word on the street is that we have to visit a store called MultiCulture. It's Pattianne's favourite boutique to shop in and has pieces that are classic with a modern and edgy twist.


When Corporate Meets Style

It's not always easy to dress in something that reflects you and your personal style at work, especially when it comes to corporate wear.


If you have found this struggle to be real for you, take some inspiration from Sam who I met while she was having lunch before heading back to work. Sam works in the public service but has not let a basic or boring work dress code get the best of her. Quite the contrary. There are some fantastic options available out there if you are willing to look.


Classic cuts combined with bold prints and colours can really brighten up your office! Sam is a perfect example wearing a gorgeous printed box top and shoes from Zara, black skirt from Cue and accessorised with earrings from Lovisa and Labrador clutch from Singapore.


Sam says her signature style is modern vintage and staples include black and white clothes but in chic and modern styles to prepare for winter. She loves to shop at Zara, Saba and Cue.


Polished & Professional

We spotted the stylish and professional Yao Yao on her way to the office.


Yao Yao is a Communications Professional, and her dress sense is the perfect balance between being on-trend and appropriate for the corporate environment.


“When I get dressed for work I try to find the happy medium between dressing conservatively and dressing on-trend”, said Yao Yao.


“I like having fun with colour and also enjoy wearing neutrals - just like my outfit today”.


We also admired Yao Yao’s turquoise Prada bag. Her view on designer bags is that they are a wardrobe investment. The key is to look after them and buy classic styles rather than trend pieces. We concur with this style statement!
