Ellen styles her favourite dress from a funky Melbourne boutique.

look 3 | Shorts and shoes from Salvos; vest from Victoria market stall
I'm lucky enough to be related to this beautiful human being! Ell is so much fun (when she tears herself away from her latest novel..!). She's a sensitive soul who cares deeply about the state of this world. She's got a knack for hunting down the best coffee in town, wherever she is - perhaps due to the fact that she's made a home in so many different places over the last few years.
How do you spend your time
I love to cruise around on my bike with my little dog running beside me or in the basket. Or going on long walks/drives discovering awesome secret places… Or hanging out at cafés (cafés being vital to my lifestyle/social life)... Or chilling at home with a pot of tea and a good book.
What is your personal Style
Maybe a simplified kind of boho/punk with a dash of androgyny and a smidge of oriental influence??? I’m not sure – I really like men’s shirts, docs, and woolly jumpers, but I absolutely cannot walk past a beautiful colourful pattern. And I’m all about the comfy.
What do you love about this item
It makes my eyes so happy to look at it! It’s just so pretty! But without being overly girly-girl. Plus it’s so super comfy and flowy - it’s like I’m not wearing anything (But marginally warmer and less naked).
Where do you love to shop
Second-hand shops in little towns, garbage bags in friends/family’s garages, side of the road throw-out piles (they’re free!), and just occasionally something will catch my eye in the window or bargain rack of an actual clothes shop.
What is the most important element in an item
Do I feel good when I wear it? ie. Does it have positive associations? Is it going to comfortable to wear all day? Does it make me feel like I look good?
What is your favourite season
Summer. The sun makes me feel so toasty and relaxed, and you can wear the most comfy, flowy clothes or run around half naked and it’s all good, because it’s soooo hot…!
What is one thing more important than fashion
People. And animals. And the environment. That’s one BIG thing – like the cycle of life.
and one more just for good measure..
