You don’t need a hair stylists or any fancy products except one little creation called a hair donut. You can

find one of these at any hair specialising store (they match to your hair colour also which is great) for about $18.95.

Melissa at The Dressing Room, Brunswick

 Mel is right on trend wearing the RUBY jumpsuit in navy with the QUENTIN blazer in amber.

If you ever thought you to had to be ridiculously tall to get away with wearing jumpsuits your wrong,

pairing it with a wedge or clog will give you a little more confidence. We think Mels looking HOT love the lippy!

Understated Will Have You Rated!

The Dressing Room

Effortlessly understated . . Gemma Ward LOVE!!

Do you ever think how much more relaxed you would feel if it didn’t take you hours and hours prepping yourself for a day or night out???

Don’t ever be mislead that a little won’t take you a long way! This summer we say choose one key element with your make up and work it baby ..

            Summer Glow: leave the house all summer long looking like you have just come back from a relaxing summer vacay!

One of our favs to use is Natural Glamour ‘Summer’ glow AND it’s a mineral bronzer which is a bonus.

            Pouty Lips: A good lippy goes a long way. This season its all about bright and bold, we live by MAC ‘Morange’ LOVE LOVE LOVE.

TIP: Be sure to give your lips some TLC exfoliate them with a toothbrush to remove all the dead skin.

            Sultry Eyes: Check out Kim K for some inspiration on the smokey eye, if you still want a statement eye but

HATE using eye shadow opt for volume lashes which will definitely have people mesmerized by your stare.

For catwalk lashes our fav, a oldie but a goodie Dior Show ‘Blackout’ Mascara.

1 on 1 with Melbourne Designer Tali Roth

The Dressing Room

We were lucky enough to squeeze in a Q&A with one of our favourite designers at The Dressing Room Tali Roth.

We learnt a little more about herself and her journey to becoming a fashion designer.


Tali Roth



Who do you consider your Fashion idols:

Karl Lagerfeld, Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth and Kim Kardashian – interesting mix but hey!

At what moment did you know you wanted to be a designer:

From when I was about nine years old I was sewing things onto my t-shirts and was very argumentative with my Mother about what I would and wouldn’t wear. I just always saw it as a hobby and I didn’t think I was going to pursue it.

Where do you look for inspiration:

I get a lot of inspiration from overseas travel. When you go overseas you witness different cultures, colours, trends etc and then each person has something different that resonates with them. I also read a lot of international magazines and spend a lot of time reading blogs.

What was the inspiration for the latest collection “Palm Spring Special”:

The latest collection was inspired by Mad Men. I was in Bali last year watching mad men on my lap top and there was an episode when Don Drapper went to Palm Springs. The mowed lawns, the architecture and the beautiful women inspired my entire collection.

How would you describe your label’s style:

I would describe my label as sharp, sophisticated, bold and sexy.

What sort of person do you imagine wearing your label:

I imagine that Tali Roth appeals to a confident and fashion forward type of woman with a keen sense of style. I think the Tali Roth girl is on trend but doesn’t want to waste her money on fast fashion items that they won’t be able to wear next season.

What did you find was the greatest challenge  when  launching your own label:

I think the greatest challenge is the balance between being ‘commercial’ and going with your creative instincts.

What is the most important item in your beauty bag:

My MOST important item is my pawpaw lotion for my lips.

Colour must of the season:

Powder Pink… often looks great with vermilion. I’m also a huge fan of Aqua and of course Black and White together, it is so mod and timeless when you put a black and white colour blocked outfit on.

Do you have any style tips for our readers for this season:

I think this season is all about colour! A coloured high waisted short with a plain singlet and a great little platform sandal is where Melbourne Summer Style is at. When it comes to night-time: a 70’s inspired mini like The Hollywood Starlet Dress or Marilyn Munroe Dress with a nude wedge is the perfect party look!

DHALIA: "FLOYD" Leather Jacket

We love how Sam has chosen to layer up her FLOYD Leather Jacket.

The volume throughout the jacket really shows with the layering underneath

creating an effortless and stylish look.

Sam has layered the FLOYD Leather Jacket with the PERRY Shirt in desert

worn open over the crisp white JONAS Tee. The TAILLE neck piece really finishes off the look . .

Light layering is always important in Melbourne, after all we

do experience four seasons in a day.

Maria is ready to tackle the unpredictable weather.

Today she is wearing the GIA top in burgundy with the WEST vest in navy, which adds the great fringing effect.

She has layered her look with the MISTY cardigan in amber.

These are all great pieces on their own, but also work really well layered up.
