The Sky's the Limit for Fuchsia

I had a blast being a panelist for the hour on Sky News Australia's number one show, Paul Murray Live. I wore this fuchsia wrap dress by La Petite Robe Chiara Boni. The material is stretchy and forgiving so it's really flattering. This designer is known for brilliant, saturated colors. Fuchsia is one of my absolute favorite colors. It's feminine with out being too froo-froo. The gold cuff with pink accents, the gold crystal dangly earrings, and the white patterned pumps are all from J Crew. I enjoy being on Sky News' PML show. The host is very good. Murray makes you think, makes you laugh, makes you want to make change, and definitely makes you want to watch more!

Neutral Tones and Sequins in NYC's West Village

Neutral tones and sequins are an unsuspecting yet perfect pair. Classy and elegant with a touch of pizazz. The neutral tones mute the scream that sparkle can sometimes bring... the kind that causes a dress to enter the room before the woman. It's all about the girl in the dress... not the just the dress right!? The under layer of this dress is nude in color. That hue combined with its fitted naturekeeps the tailored look... despite having a looser overlay.

I declare! I will wear this dress until the sequins fall off! I've probably worn it too many times as is. It was a West Village staple while I was living there. Hey! If there are different people at the events you're going to... and the dress is a hit... Do you really have to wear something new every time!? Every time I got to give it to GoodWill... I think... I'll just wear it ONE more time! Do you have any dresses like that?

Check out my handpicked goodies below. As always... let me know on social media if you find something that jives with your style!

Black Halo Wins on White Every Time

Black Halo is tops. TOPS! Great designer. Today I got to be on Studio 10 again. ;-) A lovely morning show on Australia's Network 10. I wore this white, mesh detailed silhouette dress called, 'The Cicero.' But every time I wear a Black Halo dress I feel like I've picked a winner from my closet. They are typically quite fitted and almost look like they were perfectly personally tailored... seriously! So the dress is Black Halo. Silver sparkly peep toe pumps are Michael Kors. The silver and blue crystal bracelet is from Nordstrom in NC. The blue crystal earrings were a bridesmaids' gift from a wedding I was recently in down South. ;-)

Brilliant Floral Maxi Dress For Any Occasion

My look of the day is focused around this Yumi Kim maxi dress. I feel like maxi dresses are the perfect 'go to' if I'm ever questioning what I ought to wear to an event. They can be dressed up or down. Perfect for a casual stroll along the Bondi Beach promenade ;-)... a bridal shower... wine tasting... dinner out on the town... meet the parents... picnic in the park... music festival... etc. Timeless. Yumi Kim is awesome for floral prints that will knock your socks off! So I've handpicked some of her maxi dresses. The tan and gold flats I'm wearing are by Sam Edelman.The necklaces and bracelets are all from Bondi Markets.... two exceptions... gold long chain is by Madewell... and the stud blue glass earrings are from Tasmania's Salamanca Markets. PHOTO: Anna Kooiman, Bondi Beach, Lyndon Marceau Photography

Pink Body Con Dress, Nude T Strap Pumps, Pink Studded Gold Cuff

Today I did a guest appearance on Australia's The Today Show. It was a commentary segment about the President Trump - Prime Minister Turnbull meeting in NYC.

This pink body con dress is an exception to the body con dress rule in my book. Sometimes I think body con dresses can be WAY too tight and not flattering- but I think this has the perfect amount of room to be fitted and slender... yet not sausage-y! LOL The dress is by Kay Unger. The pink studded, gold cuff is J Crew. The t-strap, nude pumps are Nine West.
