Lindy Klim

The first time I knew of the name, “Lindy Klim” was when I brought a range of her Milk & Co baby products for my friend’s baby shower gift. I remembered studying the beautiful packaging, reading the natural ingredients and thought, “what a clever idea”. Fast forward 7 years later, I never thought I’ll be in the same room with Lindy Klim, let alone shooting her on Valentines Day!

Working with Lindy Klim was effortless. We were like-minded in every way, with styling and the shots to be taken. She was upbeat and energetic, and great fun to be around with. It’s not often that I get to hang out with celebrities who are incredibly down-to-earth, and gets the job done.

Thank you Lindy, Tres Dalla (make-up) and Resta Vie (hair) and Claire (assistant) for such an AMAZING day xxx

Melbourne Central Summer Street Style 2016

Ocean’s entire skater look is freaking awesome and I decided to shoot him in the alley way to give it something something.

The pastel lavender colour of Hannah’s suit from @TopShop was a perfect match for her platinum blonde hair colour. I liked how she opted for a @BambaSwim bandage top than a typical tee or shirt to make her ensemble more edgy and cool.

Jay’s outfit embodies the essence of relaxed athletic wear, with a hint of class. I liked how he casually threw a Jeans West caramel brown coat over his all-black athletic wear.

Floral prints are on trend this Spring Summer season, so when I spotted this beautiful Leona Edmiston dress on @DanaBettine, I knew I had to stop her for an outfit snap. Apparently, this was an exclusive Chinoiserie print sourced from a New York print house dated to the 1950s. Zoom in closer to take a good look at the print!

Lin Lin’s overall street style look and colour tones were easy on the eye. I liked how she casually threw on an olive-green robe over her light blue dress. Buttons ran along the side of her dress which turned into a split which I thought was cool.

Rachel looked super cute in her red lippy and ginger hair pulled up into a high pony. I liked the way she tucked her Mojo tee into her high waisted jeans to show off her slim figure.

Dani has a cool swag going on when I spotted her from a far. Her icy blonde fade hair style and Aboriginal print on her sweater was what made me stop and snap.

Kevin had a cool street vibe going on. I liked the look of his Camo jacket and long black tee, and of-course with a mid-length camo jacket from Topman matched with a pair of black Vans high top sneakers.

I really liked Emily’s hair style and flawless beauty look. It made sense after learning that she worked at the Mecca store. I also liked how Emily layered her H&M dress over her navy-blue polka dot shirt for a little pop of colour.

This was probably the most destroyed pair of denim jeans I’ve come across in a while, but I really liked how Crystle kept her @Supre ripped jeans classy by wearing a basic long sleeved top.

Fish braids ✔ Sweater ✔ Vintage suede skirt ✔  There isn’t much I don’t like about Cyan’s chic street style look.

melbourne-central-street-style-karenwoo_0009-edit

 

I liked Natasha Pietrobuono two cute fish braids, and a relaxed vibe. She wore a pair of Supre loose fit denim pants with cuffed hems which made her white Converse high top sneakers stood out.

I’d always appreciate a nautical look on a man when he makes it look smart and effortless. Ron wore a casual grey YD jacket over his Uniqlo striped top and chino pants, and finished the look with a pair of Jack Threads shoes from London.

melbourne-central-street-style-karenwoo_0025-edit

Axel is a singer/writer from Melbourne who was making his way to a busking gig. His mismatched shoes and quirky H&M socks had caught my eye, and with amusement I asked him why. He explained that he couldn’t decide, so let’s help him out – left or right?

Melbourne Central Street Style August 2016

It’s that time of the month to snoop out the levels of Melbourne Central to snap up my favourite street style looks.

What I enjoy most about stopping people on their tracks is putting a smile on their faces after complimenting them on how they well they have dressed. It really makes their day.

Thank you  Melbourne Central for having me again, and to Jackson Roach for all the captions!

The next time you visit, I’ll be off to New York for fashion week so stay tuned xx

Vellas’ layering really caught my eye. The way she mixes black lace with a form-fitting turtleneck is really unique. Not to mention the way she brightens up a grey jacket with colourful Japanese patchwork! Vella tops off her look in a pair of Adidas Stan Smiths. Tell us, how do you layer when the temperature drops?

Donning cord pants over chinos, this Melbourne gent has given fresh thought to the classic preppy style we know and love. Not to mention the autumnal colours of his check shirt and crisp white low tops, this is one dapper dude on the move!

Even when she’s not in the studio, Chinese designer Mei Lins’ fashion game is always on point. Reppin’ her own designs, I loved the way Mei has given a pop of pastel colour with hand writing on the back of her denim jacket. Her pants are tied in an interesting way as well, that give a unique silhouette that’s still wearable for every day.

We love fashion that tells a story, and that’s what @JaymesMakis’ look is all about. Channeling bohemian vibes, Jaymes’ tribal shawl is from Bali and his jewelry is all hand made from pieces he’s collected whilst travelling. I love the way Jaymes has draped the shawl around his top half to give a cocoon silhouette, and has kept the colour scheme quite nomadic.

With dreams of making it big in Japan, musician Abel has the rockstar look down pat! Putting his best foot forward in a pair of white Common Projects sneakers and all Acne ensemble, we think Abels’ threads are urban street wear at its best.

 

karenwoo-mc-mary

The only thing more eye-catching than Mary’s bright smile is her tribal print jacket. I love the way she’s mixed this Gorman piece with a vintage maxi skirt and Converse high tops for the perfect urban ensemble.

 

karenwoo-mc-nick

We love the way this gent has brightened up an all navy ensemble with a block panel sweater in autumnal shades.

 

karenwoo-mc-rachelwornou

When it comes to cool, understated style, we can’t look past this fashionistas outfit. Denim is a go-to for most, but we love the way this jacket dons a fur collar for added warmth and  pleated pants to complete the look. Tell us, what’s your favourite denim piece?

 

karenwoo-mc-armenmazo

We love dapper gents who aren’t afraid to set the trend and walk their own path. Opting for a relaxed silhouette, this gents burgundy neck tie adds a twist of colour to an otherwise all white ensemble.

 

karenwoo-melbournecentral-aug2016_016

Suicide squad you say? We think Les’s in a league of his own! This punk rocker dons the iconic Rottweiler tee by Givenchy, with zip detailed denim and studded Christian Louboutins to match. Les’s camo jacket by Off White with embellished badging rounds out this loud punk look.

 

karenwoo-mc-sophietaylor

After finding out this fashionista is on the retail job hunt, it’s pretty clear she’s dressed for the role! I love the way Sophie paired her cropped puffer with a high waist pant to give the illusion of longer legs. Opting for a light chambray blue gives this winter look a pop of colour. Tell us, how do you add colour to your winter wardrobe?

 

karenwoo-mc-steveando

Who said winter is all about dark colours! We love this dapper gents’ chambray jacket with floral pocket square to match.­ Tell us, how do you brighten up your winter wardrobe?

 

karenwoo-mc-louisaberglund

A key look this winter was the bomber jacket, so we love it when fashionistas experiment with different colours like this olive one. Combined with an oversized sweat and indigo denim in a velvet finish, we think this collegiate look is down pat. Tell us, what colour is your bomber jacket?

 

karenwoo-mc-july

Keep it fun and playful in a denim jumpsuit like this Melbourne fashionsta! We love the way she’s opted for a darker indigo to complement the season. Tell us, how would you wear a denim jumpsuit?
