pacific fair aw15 presentation

It was so lovely to be a part of the Pacific Fair Autumn Winter 15 presentation and blogger breakfast last month.   It was great to meet some of Queensland’s premier fashion bloggers and Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley.   We enjoyed a delightful breakfast, new season fashion and a special perfume masterclass by Samantha Taylor of the Powder Room.   We mixed our own potion and created a scent that resinated with us.   Super fun!

I’m so excited for Pacific Fair to be completed, it’s under going a complete make over with some amazing stores going in including the major mono brands.   Can’t wait!   We have decided to keep our Janine Edwards store at Marina Mirage however.   It’s such a magnificent shopping precinct and we were one of the first retailers to open there over twenty years ago.   That’s pretty special.

There’s something so appealing about wearing volume of this size, the bigger the better in my books.   Proportions like these give you an enormous presence, a certain character and make a real statement.   You simply can’t deny it.

Dresses and skirts worn over pants were big about ten years ago (maybe more).   The look disappeared until recently and is making a slight come back.   I always loved this look, great for those days you want to hide and layers are always a good thing.

This coat reminds me of puff pastry… It’s such a light cotton piece with great height and big sleeves.   It’s quite malleable and easy to work as I have done with the double wrap belt and kind of puffed it out a bit.   I kind of feel like a gladiator about to take off, however.   Which isn’t a bad thing!

Oh, and excuse me while I delve into a pit of grey and navy at the moment, might need to add some more colour to my life this week.  That’s the plan!

Love you all xx
