Discovering new Australian labels is always fun – especially when their pieces are your jam.


I returned from my hens weekend in Melbourne this week – it was such an amazing week. Six of my closest friends and I headed down south for three nights and had an absolute ball. Prior to setting foot in our cute little house in Fitzroy, I didn’t have any clue as to what we were doing. It was all a surprise which was incredible, as I normally am a control freak. They know me too well – everything I love, we did and I could not be more grateful.

I took this outfit to Melbourne, but I ran out of time to shoot it – I just wanted to enjoy the moment instead of shoot outfits – plus without JD being there it kind of made things tough, haha. I did however shoot a lot of food and beverages – my girls find it so funny how many food shots I got. I trained them well though. These donuts made it on to each of their Instagrams.



Two new labels I discovered this past fortnight:

This neoprene skirt by Black By Geng is a new piece in my wardrobe/floorobe. It’s a new label I stumbled upon a fortnight ago – the designer used to work for Chloe, so I knew this skirt would be amazing on! I also picked up two other pieces – a cute quilted top and an insane playsuit which the cut of is out of this world.

I also stumbled across Assembly Label a while ago on Instagram. Instagram is my go to place for finding new labels. I am so glad I did too, I just want to wear every piece. They are my type of label to a tee! Denim, great clean cuts and easy wear pieces.



Right now it is exactly 1 week and 17 hours (I may or may not have a wedding app) til my wedding, so I am off to drink a wine, freak out a little bit and get last minute things done. Feel free to take the reigns for me. (I beg you)
