I wouldn’t really call myself a rebel in my everyday life but when it comes down to my office style I’m a self proclaimed revolutionist!
Okay that is a little dramatic but, if you ever catch me in the break room, I can assure you I won’t be unvaried.
I’m not the girl to have a “work” & “weekend” wardrobe, but rather believe recycling items in your wardrobe, especially key pieces to create different looks.
In the next coming weeks, you’ll see the Thigh High Series unfold & see how I pair these bad ass boots with three different outfits.
And to answer the question, Yes you can…
Shirt: Olio Stories
Boots: Public Desire
1. to transform or convert
2. to adapt
Change is fluid, complex & unavoidable. We are constantly changing to bigger & better versions of ourselves, however, the crux of the matter is not how/what/when we change but how we adapt to change.
They key is to grab it by the throat & roll with it. Don’t let change fuck with you, rather, you fuck with change & don’t call them back in the morning.
In the last five years I have changed jobs six times. From fashion start ups to the corporate humdrum I’ve dipped my toe in every pool of possibility thus far. Each role has taught me how to adapt to new people, environments, dress codes & pay checks.
The point is, change is like a t-shirt, over the years designers have tried & tested many ways to change it up. From crops to cutouts we’ve seen every trend under the bright blue sky. And with every new trend comes a little ass slap…

The pelvage trend was once a craze, forwarded by influencers & models who don’t stand at a comfy 5″3 & also have no qualms in accidental flashing.
Thigh-high splits & a touch of quirk.
Keep it simple & be confident.
And, when it comes to the old age trend of “dressing for your body type,”
I give zero fucks.

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear
2. Just clothes
Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.
Women are swapping out pocketless, slim-fit blazers for boxy & fluid clothing. Instead of focusing on wearing man inspired silhouettes, women are directly buying from the mens department.
There’s a movement now where clothes are not segregated by gender but are differentiated by colour, shape & patterns. Its a long road till gender fluid clothes are introduced, but style is universal right?
In my humble opinion, menswear has seen a creative outburst, with more Hommes experimenting with colours, printed shirts & an outrageous sense of street style.
So dames, ditch those “boyfriend” jeans & those who ask:
But, are you wearing mens clothes?
Kurta: Suket Dhir
Pants: Country Road
No, it’s called Athleisure.
Where fashion meets comfort.

Every morning I wake up with a different mindset & mood to the previous day. Some days I wake up feeling authentic & on better days I wake with a sense of bad-assery. Not only does my mood & mindset affect the flow of things but plays a paramount part in my outfit of the day or better knows as #ootd.
You see, on Monday I could be roaming free in a red babydoll dress with leopard flats & heart – shaped studs & by Thursday you would catch me in denim cut-offs, a white shirt with the first two buttons undone.
Some call it balance.
I call it “My Morning Mètier”
If you look closely on my last two posts you must have noticed, I am not wearing a bra. No problem right?
I’ve been genetically blessed with small boobs & from a young age it has been ingrained to religiously wear a bra. A quick trip to buy milk requires my wallet, keys, will power not buy ice cream & support.
However, going sans bra has been liberating. I feel comfortable, confident, sexy & say a “hell to the yeah” to some cheeky side boob. Be it a ten minute drive to pick up pizza or a dinner I’m embracing bra-free fashion.
We are definitely more than being shamed or sexualised for our bodies.

The Little Black Dress 2.0:
- Unapologetically you.
If there is one thing I love more than gluten free ginger cookies is the transitional season of Autumn. Give me an oversized sweater or T – shirt dress & I am happy as Carrie eating a $3 cupcake in grey knee – high socks on a bench ( Season 3, Ep. 5) !
Add a corset belt to a loose silhouette or pair with a white shirt & black wide leg pants for a sleek look.

If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.
