Let’s call it a Date!

Here’s what to wear!

Yes, yes we know...it's Valentine's Day this Friday and you want 
some fabulous outfit to wear and dazzle your date with. 
So, here are 12 lovely looks that you can wear this Friday 
but also (and this is the important bit)...style again and again!
Whether you're off to the theatre, an intimate dinner for two or
 a casual Sunday Brunch, feel like a million dollars in our new arrivals.

max mara navy dress



One way to set the tone for the evening is a subtle sparkle. This figure hugging navy dress features a sweet silver strip at the collar and the most eye-catching navy fabric. You can play on the sparkle and dress this look up with a chandelier earring and embellished pump, otherwise tone it down with a structured blazer and nude accessories.


paule ka stockists brisbane


We’re feeling strong Katherine Hepburn vibes with this ensemble. The real feature here is the voluminous wide leg pant, which has such beautiful flow to the fabric to it as you move. Styled here with a blouson silk blouse and a long strand of pearls, the simple elegance comes from your restraint.


max mara tweed



Tweed is back with a vengeance and it is looking smarter than ever in this tailored number. A straight through, fitted silhouette skims the figure in a flattering manner. Ideal for trans-seasonal dressing, considering wearing this into winter with opaque tights and a cropped jacket. We love this look for a sweet, after work cocktail!



silk maxi studio max mara


Be the belle of the ball in this delicious silk print maxi. The romantic, almost Impressionistic floral motif allows you to pick up several colours  – it’s your choice if you want to highlight to soft mauve, hot pink or bright coral tones. Keep it simple with bright pumps and a wide waisted belt for a daytime wedding, or else go all out with all your bling and statement heels for that Gala function! This is one statement dress you’ll be able to turn to time and again.


weekend max mara knit



We couldn’t do a Valentine’s day blog without featuring a Little Black Dress!
A true wardrobe staple, this versatile knit LBD will quickly become your go-to dress for those spontaneous coffee dates and movie meet-ups. Throw on your statement mules (like these gorgeous pleated bow mules in leopard print) and some hoops for that effortlessly glam vibe.

goat fashion brisbane



There are many shades of green on offer at the moment, but this hue has to be one of our all-time favourites. It’s extremely vibrant, but not too strong to prevent it from being worn day to night. We think a nude pump and simple accessories allows the dress to be the hero. You will appreciate the lightweight wool crepe fabric heading into the cooler months, especially in the office or any evening functions. The thoughtful details of the bow ‘corsage’ at the neck, softly tailored waist and 3/4 length sleeve add a feminine twist to an otherwise modern look.

missoni pants brisbane



It’s quite a feat to find a blouse with an interesting print, assymetrical hem and long line, but we’ve done it! If you’re a lady with height, a larger bust and perhaps your lovely long legs need to be balanced out with a longer top, this is a Must-Have for you. Pair it with tailored pants and a chunky, statement necklace. The beauty of this black and white print is that it is timeless – you will be wearing this blouse on many a night out!

print dress corporate


It’s time to upgrade your 9 to 5 style with this black and white print number. The clever placement of the exposed stitching creates a lovely, feminine line in this straight through number. The cap sleeves are a favourite feature for the working woman, but you can also throw a blazer on top to create a more formal feel for those important meetings or work trips. The best thing about this dress? It’s so beautiful that you will want to head out for those after work drinks this Friday…


lace max mara cocktail dress



Vive la French Flag! Grace the streets of Brisbane in your Red, White and Blue ensemble inspired by the French seaside. The Breton stripe works for everyone and can be paired with *almost* every jean. To keep your look modern, style it with our red crocodile embossed leather shoes and a Boyfriend style jean.

jumpsuit silk max mara brisbane



Elevate your everyday style with this easy to style jumpsuit. In a fun, silk print fabric, this jumpsuit is great for trans-seasonal styling!



goat fashion dress blue



Who doesn’t love an A-Line silhouette? It’s inherently feminine and features a neat bow at the neckline and bracelet sleeves. This jersey fabric is soft to the touch yet holds its shape well with wear. Really make this outfit glow with the addition of bright gold jewellery and a statement pump.

goat print dress


A pretty floral dress with pops of strong hues in the print will be the piece you reach for every time you have a spontaneous date! The pink undertones are feminine and romantic and whilst it has a fresh feel for spring, you can really wear florals all year round. Keep the tones neutral to ensure the focus is on the vibrant print!
