A little organisation goes a long way when it comes to New Year resolutions

Posted by Katie Tweed on

The beginning of a new year brings the most wonderful feeling of hope, a hope for change and the drive to make it happen.  Even if we don't want to, a new year always has us setting resolutions, goals and intentions for the year ahead, and they always involve change. For some, these are passing thoughts - like "this year I would like to be more kind" - and for others they are more intentional, written down and revisited over time.      For change to really happen, it's important to jump in with a clear head, and nothing clears my head...

Outfit Inspiration - Smart Casual Done Right

Posted by Katie Tweed on

When the dress code says "smart casual" we immediately reach for an outfit like this one, that is comfortable, appropriate for the weather and easily dressed up or down with the change of a shoe.  You can't go wrong with a jean-and-pretty-top combo for a smart casual event. Simply stash a pair of heels and a pair of flats in your car, so that when you scope out the dressing situation inside, you can easily pop back to the car if you need to dress up or down a touch. A red lippie on hand can do the trick as well!...

Posted by Katie Tweed on

Whenever I ask my other half what I should wear, he always answers with "jeans and a nice top".  Is that man-speak for "I actually don't give a crap" or does he literally mean that I should wear a nice top...  Whatever the meaning (let's face it, we'll never know how to speak 'man') it's probably handy to have a few nice tops up your sleeve, right?  I've curated a delicious selection of "nice tops" for you to peruse...

What on earth does "smart casual" mean?

Posted by Katie Tweed on

I couldn't tell you how many events I have been to over the years where the dress code is "smart casual" - one of the broadest terms I have ever come across.  A smart casual wedding is very different to a smart casual 3rd birthday party, which is different again to a smart casual work function... so how the heck are we supposed to know what to wear?  A question I find myself asking again and again...  Before I begin to explain Alice's formula for navigating this tricky dress code, let me just say to all the ladies who have...

How to: instantly look slimmer without dieting

Posted by Katie Tweed on

Your wardrobe (and some well thought out styling) can make you look slimmer in an instant. How? You might ask... Here's 4 easy styling tips below! 1: Choose a dress with an innovative design.  Brands like Leina Broughton, Very Very and Sacha Drake are specifically designed to flatter. Sacha Drake, for example, includes special flat waist panels, a-line skirts and clever prints that create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. Look out for flat waist bands, prints that flatter the waist and if you want a figure hugging dress, opt for a darker colour.  The dark dress above is from Leina Broughton....
