Daily Outfit: Sweats at Work

Today I am headed down to my parent's farm on the far-south coast for their annual Finnish Independence Day celebration; so I wanted a daily outfit that translated well into three hours in the car.

For transparency, I feel like I must say that I wasn't brave enough to wear the track pants to work in the end, even on 'Casual Friday', so I wound up changing them out for a pair of dark jeans.

Daily Outfit: Drug Runner

I'm not really sure why, but this outfit reminds me of a pilot's get-up.

I feel like all that I am missing are some reflective aviators and a cigar and I could be running drugs in a sea-plane in some terrible early 90's action film, waiting for Arnie to bust into our compound and start some mass shoot-out while I desperately try to make a get away with tacky suitcases full of money...

I'm also perplexed as to why I like this look so much.

Daily Outfit: Inappropriately Yours

I find myself thinking about what is and what is not appropriate to wear to work quite a bit, especially when I am putting together my daily outfits.

For me, a Public Servant, I find that people are very quick to assume that my colleagues and I spend every day in corporate dress. I guess that is the image that societally we have conjured up for how Public Servants look. However, I was told today by an acquaintance that what I wore to work was not appropriate, and that if I worked for him we would be having words about my inappropriate work attire...

Daily Outfit: Just Like Marc

I have had a fixation with Louis Vuitton since I started high school.

It started with ripping the incredible ads for the Vuitton luggage pieces out of Vogue magazines in my art classes, and grew from there to where I am today, the owner of several different pieces, collector of catalogs, and life-long devotee to the cult of the monogram canvas.

I've been waiting for a beautiful new piece to arrive from Sydney all weekend, and so I decided to sub-in my large six-ring agenda for today's photo shoot, knowing that the actual item would arrive after I took these photos.

Luxury: Braddon Tailors Trunk Show this Thursday

This is something of a public service announcement for any men or women in Canberra looking to get their hands on the best bespoke suits, ties and accessories that Canberra has to offer.

This Thursday 24 July, two Canberra companies are joining forces to showcase their impressive wears for men who appreciate the finer-side of mens fashion and who understand that first impressions really do last.

I will be joining Pip Morgan and Tarun Charker of Braddon Tailors, along with Jason Sergott of Henry Cater, and more than 50 Canberran gentlemen; and heading to the studio of Braddon Tailors for a unique trunk show of some of the best men’s winter fashion available in the nation’s capital.

Daily Outfit: Orange Knits

A pop of bright orange against a sea of dark navy is clearly a winning combination in my book.

Wardrobe Stories: Corr Blimey Slim Jim Jeans

After meeting with designers Louisa de Smet and SteveWright in the lead up to Fashfest 2014 and then seeing their amazing runwayshow for the Berlin collection, I knew that I wanted to get my hands on my own piece of Corr Blimey. More specifically, I wanted a pair of jeans.

After our initial meeting/consultation, I wound up choosing the Slim Jim Jeans however, because I'm generally difficult, I asked for Lousia to include the tabbed waistband from the Dustman Jeans, because I love the way that this looks.
