What To Wear: Melbourne Cup - The Races

OutfitsDoriana Vella

Getting Ready For Melbourne Cup

With Melbourne Cup almost here if you are anything like me you are most probably trying to decide should I go or should I not……then what should I wear if I do go?

So for some inspirational guidelines from the experts here’s what 2017 racing season fashion punters are predicting.

This year’s colour choices are red, pink hues, magenta, cobalt blue, emerald green, yellow & crisp whites.  

Florals, feathers, lace, ruffles & jewels are also tipped to be favourites on clothing & head pieces.

The iconic fascinator will be dominated this year by embellished head bands, turbans & boaters.

Be classy, be sophisticated, be playful, most of all be you & have fun!!!

How To Wear Classics With Vintage & High Street Fashion

OutfitsDoriana Vella

A day doesn’t seem to pass without me hearing one of my lovely customers say “wow ….but where would I wear that?” when they notice something rather amazing on Sammy & Sid racks.

Today, style has for so many of us been replaced by comfort, but who really dictates to us that we can’t wear a beautiful classic piece we may already have in our wardrobe OR buy a NEW stunning skirt or jacket & pair it back casually? Having quality statement pieces that have longevity can often be easily re-invented & refreshed from season to season. Simple!!!

So I have chosen a few pieces available at Sammy & Sid to inspire you & show you how to team an eye-catching piece with another item & wear it confidently, yes even on the streets of the beautiful laid back northern beaches. I say it’s time we consciously dress to make ourselves feel special because we can and we as women deserve it!!

Embrace your inner diva and ditch the active wear.. 😉😘

How To Wear Velvets and Metallics in Winter

OutfitsDoriana Vella

Several weeks ago I wrote Sammy & Sid's first blog where I mentioned how to wear metallics & velvets and posted what we thought were some inspiring images.

Check out these pics of @cyliaherbertson & I wearing some of our actual stock still available online or in store.

Some uber cool, classy preloved/ vintage key pieces such as Zimmerman, Gucci & Prada teamed with high street items. 

For the curious ones I'm the one wearing everything down to my ankles. 😺

Enjoy the long weekend and keep warm Sydneysiders! 💋 xxDoriana
