Lia-Belle

I shot beautiful Lia-Belle on a glorious summers day for my latest street style column in Grazia Australia. Hands down one of the warmest, most hard-working girls I’ve had the blessing of befriending, so it was very fitting that Lia-Belle was my last street style subject in Sydney. For the time being at least anyway.

Lia-Belle is the epitome of cool in this stripe on stripe combo by Dorota. It’s such a refreshing take on the classic stripe; a little textured and perfectly cut. The crop is super flattering – it’s as far away from the silhouettes of the 90’s as possible – sexy but not too revealing. It’s all about showing some skin without exposing the belly button.

I’m a big fan of Australian label Dorota (particularly this dress here) – her pieces are the perfect balance of super cute and super cool. The website is coming soon, so keep an eye out.

Streets of Prague

Before visiting Prague, I had a lot of romantic notions about how beautiful the city would be. We arrived at night, and driving past Prague Castle for the first time all lit up and towering over the canal is one of the most memorable moments of my trip. It was like stepping back in time; a real-life castle with an impossibly beautiful presence. No photos, but forever imprinted in my mind.

Prague really is a special place – with ornate buildings lined up along spacious streets, delicious pilsners, the charming Old Town, impressive views over the city, and traditional Czech-style cafes (a cross between a restaurant and a large dining hall) which are open all hours of the day. We planned our stay to coincide with Christmas, which really was a world away from the usual balmy weather and family traditions back home. Sadly no snow, but the extravagance of Christmas lights, markets, carols and mulled wine was more than enough.

Roshe Run

Never has a shoe felt so comfortable. These kicks are like walking on brand new carpet all day long. And while they look kinda weird off the foot thanks to the soft mesh fabric over the toes, they are actually super cool when you slip them on. Perfect for days of endless walking, exploring new cities and sights.

I have just spent the past week in car-free, water-logged, beautiful Venice. While we were there, we took a water bus over to colourful Burano, an island in the Venetian Lagoon where every house is painted in the most impressive hue. The richest pinks, brightest yellows and boldest blues all lined up one after another. The beauty of the town speaks for itself really; it’s borderline ridiculous how picture perfect this place is.
