Autumn Chill

A chill in the air calls for good coffee and warm coats and that's exactly what I found Tess with at the new Westside Acton park. The Betts store manager and Uni student was out to try Damn Fine coffee for the first time. I quickly learnt about Tess that she loves her coffee! Tess had combined her cool street style to perfectly match the cooler weather with a gorgeous black coat over a grey sweater (both from Sportsgirl), Neuw blue denim ripped skinny jeans from Parliament, black flats from Betts and Deena and Ozzy oversized bag from Urban Outfitters.


Chic Style at Rebel Muse

Melissa Daniels was style stalked at the Rebel Muse media launch this past week.


The 29-year-old Executive Assistant effortlessly wore head-to-toe Witchery, literally, from earrings to shoes!


This outfit was perfect for the Rebel Muse launch. Melissa looked smashing in this khaki animal print dress - the outfit was polished yet fun and the purple Nars lip pencil provided a chic pop.


Melissa said her style in general has taken a rather grandiose step towards simplicity over the last few years. The staples in her wardrobe have gone from big and bold to comfortable and chic.


We love!

Its All About the Jacket

We spotted 18-year old uni student, Tilly, spending her holidays studying hard at the library. On a chilly Canberra day, Tilly opted for warmth and comfort. Dressed in all black, she said her Op Shop denim jacket is usually her go to piece in winter.


Tilly has a quality-over-quantity attitude. Being a bit of a tomboy who doesn't go shopping often, she believes that good quality basics are key. Her black jeans are from Wrangler and her leather black shoes are from Wittner.


Her op shop jacket is the star of the outfit and is a must for everyone's wardrobe.


Colour Pops and Patterns

Autumn is a great season for trying out new trends. We are looking forward to blending shades with pops of colour and out-there patterns.


The colour of Autumn and Winter 2015 is definitely grey, followed by black and white. Staples and basics are huge with even more of a need to stock up on good quality items which can be worn everyday and layered (we love layering!) with larger in-the-moment 'trends'. Think a really great good quality pair of boots and a leather handbag.


Pops of colour and prints are always in-season - just the trendy colours and styles change each year. Neons are definitely 'so 2014' so please wear these items with extreme care. We'd suggest they should be worn only to the gym or under your outfit and once they fade it's time to say goodbye (read: put them the Vinnie's bin as soon as possible).


We love this week's Street Style because the basic cotton shirt gives the loud patterned skirt a casual feel, while the handbag and ankle boots play up the look for on-trend style points.


Sharp Style for Autumn

Tommy was pulled to the side by us on his way to afternoon drinks - his outfit being the reason why.


With Canberra’s temperatures dropping fast, Tommy opted for both style and functionality with his maroon blazer as the 'statement'. However, he has created an effortless overall look - keeping the outfit light and 'smart-casual' pairing it with a classic v-neck white tee, cream chinos and tan shoes. Very appropriate for Autumn.


It’s refreshing to find a man in Canberra who enjoys shopping and dressing sharp.
