Get Columbine’s look: Elvine beanie, Carin Wester bomber, Zadig & Voltaire knit, Acne jeans, Dsquared shoes and Chanel bag
Columbine Smille is my kind of lady; her style is ridiculously good but she never looks over done or over-dressed. You can’t beat classic blue jeans and pumps, especially when paired with an over-sized silk bomber. As you can see, Milan was crazy cold with snow or rain every day of Fashion Week. But that’s what beanies and jackets are for right? I’ve always said I prefer winter dressing over summer, so I can’t really back out now.

Earlier in the week I posted my most recent editorial for Vogue Australia’s Style Spy. While pulling together the looks, I came across AR; a super clean and directional brand from New York. Created in 2010, AR focuses on quality materials, classic silhouettes and a great fit. Basically everything you every look for in a garment, but somehow so many brands seem to overlook.
It’s no secret I’m a sucker for leather, and the two piece combo Camille is wearing above is pretty much my idea of sartorial perfection. As with most high-quality materials, this leather doesn’t come cheap. So while we can’t all ‘add to cart’, I felt AR was worthy of a mention in their own right.

Get Emily’s look: Grey beanie, black sunglasses, long black trench coat, black skinny jeans, black textured bag and Alexander Wang heels. Candice’s look: Chanel bag, white structured dress, white round sunglasses and Lanvin boots
Aren’t Emily and Candice a perfect picture of monochromatic dressing? Nothing but black, white and a hint of grey is the easiest way to pull together a chic look without too much effort. I’m a big fan of the proportions – Emily’s long draped trench and Candice’s white structured dress are both so good. Definitely my kind of winter dressing.

Over the past few months I’ve been lucky enough to do a bit of travel for both pleasure and work. And I’ve yet to spend a night in a hotel. It’s all about apartments I tell you.
Before I left Sydney, a friend suggested my boyfriend and I rent apartments as opposed to hotels (often expensive) or backpackers (often a bit too communal) for our travels around Europe. And I’ve got to say, nothing quite beats having your own kitchen, endless wifi, privacy, and plenty of space.
I’ve stayed in a number of apartments in various countries and every experience has been different but ultimately amazing. You get a taste of what it means to be a local; owners share with you their favourite cafes and bars, you can cook with ingredients from the local grocer and sometimes you can even do your own washing.
During Milan Fashion Week I stayed in a beautiful one bedroom apartment hosted by a lovely man by the name of Felipe. After shooting all day in the cold (read: snow), it really was the best home away from home. The apartment was so bright and spacious I decided to get all Coveteur-ish on it with a few of the accessories from my suitcase. Hope you like it.
Check out the apartment (and better shots of the rooms) here. And if you’re not travelling to Milan, Wimdu has you covered for everywhere else here.
