Summer’s here and that means finding that delicate balance between comfort and my natural inclination to dress in multiple layers. This super light and lightly distressed tank by Friedrich Gray satisfies both points – it’s so paper-thin that it’s almost like wearing nothing it all and I can layer it over a black slip, add jewellery and go.
I picked it up at the Friedrich Gray pop-up shop last week, where I had the distinct pleasure of chatting to the designer, Ben Pollitt. He’s the whole package – talented, charming, and humble. Extraordinary.
More about this outfit: you will remember my Does Not Equal inverted cross from this post. The ribcage-esque ring was a gift from the lovely people at Sterling Shadows – it’s quickly become one of my all-the-time rings which never leave my fingers. The nail-polish is by Butter London, a taupey-greigy shade called Fash Pack.
This Glasshouse Manhattan Little Black Dress candle was a Christmas gift from my editor. I’m burning it right now, and listening to The Cure’s Disintegration. The scent of orchid and rose and blood orange is swirling through my bedroom while Robert Smith sings Prayers for Rain.
The La Lune giclée print, from Double Merrick, is a new edition to my wall.
I’ve spent years trying to find a product that would stop my lips from being dry. I’ve had some results with Smith’s Rosebud Salve, but it didn’t quite give me the hydration I’d hoped for. Last week I chanced upon a forgotten bag of cosmetic samples I’d amassed during fashion week – amongst them, M.A.C Lip Conditioner.
After using it for the past week, my lips are completely rehydrated. It’s astounding. Consider it a permanent addition to my beauty cabinet.
I’ve been obsessing over Dion Lee ever since Rosemount Australian Fashion Week – his show at the Opera House was truly breathtaking. I promised myself then that I would own a piece of that collection, and finally, after months, here it is.
