Charming. That's who Mouna Stone is in every way. Beautiful, talented, creative, but totally down to earth and fun. Here's our sneak peak into the life and wardrobe of this one cool chic.
Vanessa Rowse or styleandshenanigans.com is the perfect illustration of how style doesn't have to cost a bomb! If you've seen Vanessa on Instagram or her blog, you might wonder though, how both she, and her house always look so crisp, fresh and modern. We tracked Vanessa down and demanded she spill the beans!
Sculptor Timothea is a big fan of colour and texture, and quite often that means checking in at Gorman first.
Working late as a sculptor might mean your work-to-pub outfit is often going to be a work shirt and boots, but recently, Timothea is making more time to dress up. So where is her first port of call to snap up something fab? Most often it's Gorman. "I always thought it was disappointing not to be dressing up a little. We have 2 kids now, and I feel like I have been able to relax more with my wardrobe and I am enjoying the variety."
Any girl that cites Lucille Ball as a style influence you've just got to love! Oh, and did we mention she's working on a book?
"As a child I loved watching I love Lucy, I loved to see Lucy dressed up cooking dinner, and I wanted to be just like that, in heels cooking dinner. I'd like to be the Ambassador for the cook in heels!"
Wanna be a stylist? Leiza would recommend you start with great passion. Oh, and a love of shoes. "I've been like this since I moved out of home at 19. I was renting with girlfriends, had a low paying job, and loved to go out and most importantly loved to shop! I would always buy something I could wear to work and could potentially wear going out also..."
If your job has you working behind the scenes and climbing ladders, it doesn't mean you can't be a scene stealer.
"I’ve always loved getting dressed up, but the industries I’ve worked in have never required it. Uniforms, jeans and t-shirts were the general attire. At some point I think I became sick of waiting for the occasions to wear nice clothing and so it became a part of everyday. The way I look at it now is, as long as I can climb a ladder, lift, carry and stand on my feet for long periods of time I can wear what I want".
Simple, sleek and sometimes surprising - Laura's wardrobe reflects her love of beautiful craftmanship, handmade simplicity, oh, and kooky socks!
Interior design student Laura Casey is a big fan of Australian designers, craftsmen and makers. In her hunting ground of Melbourne, Laura finds she's spoilt for choice.
Lingerie designer of boutique brand KISSKILL, Jane Carrodus will inspire you to trade in your ho-hum beige bras, and fall for star studded covetables instead.
If you think of underwear as being purely functional, Jane Carrodus will challenge your ideas. "I really believe in lingerie being seen as part of an outfit too, when I was young it was quite shameful to have your bra strap showing. I’ve thrown out the old fashioned view of lingerie as being ‘unmentionables’ - get it out and open that shirt a little I say!"....
From Sydney to Bali, Krystle knows where to find great style, just don't ask her how all those designer pieces found their way into her wardrobe!
You've got to love a girl that starts the day dressed in a relaxed style, and dusted with some healthy ambition. "I am pretty lucky these days, as work for me is at home. So, generally, I will be in denim shorts and a singlet (and no shoes!) or gym gear, in the hope that I will either go to the gym before work or after work - it normally works I swear!!"
Being mates with Fashionet.com.au founder, Hadis Nosrati, can be both advantageous and dangerous! While Carla is often tempted by the quality of international labels like Alice by Temperly, she knows how to mix it up with more affordable brands. And her greatest fashion weakness? Let's just say she a sucker for flower power."
