Got a Reunion Coming Up?

We're answering real questions from real women who shop with us! See what our Mount Lawley Staff have to say...

You've changed throughout the years, let's face it... Maybe you put on a little bit of weight or even lost a lot of it. Your body shape has changed and you've received an invite to your school reunion. It's been 30+ years since you've seen some of your fellow students.
What to wear??? You want to look amazing and make an impression (but not look like you're trying too hard).
For a smart casual look try our NYDJ jeans in black or a dark navy as the colour is slimming. With the fabulous Lift & Tuck Technology, these jeans will also make your butt look like it did when you were in high school.
You can't go wrong with teaming then with the blingy Frank Lyman, Smith Cold Shoulder Top, or the flattering, Kalani Chiffon Overlay Top.
Our Joseph Ribkoff Gold bar Top in the HOT colour of the season, Royal Sapphire will work well too.
If jeans aren't your thing, try the Joseph Ribkoff, slim fit York Pant with these tops or even the sleek, Harriette Pencil Skirt.
The Joseph Ribkoff vera Eyelet Dress teamed with opaque tights and heeled ankle boots is a classic, flattering look.
For a look that is on-trend, try the Marlow Palazzo Pant with the classic Adela top. These will work great as separates well after the reunion.


If you're on a budget, the Philosophy Blyton, bell sleeve, chiffon top or a Take That printed overlay top or the Luna Gabrielle Batwing top with a black skirt or pants will look fabulous and on trend.
Now you're looking and feeling amazing, the only thing to do is to go and have fun! You never know, you might just make that boy you had a crush on all those years ago regret not making a move!
For more great style advice like this, come and see us in-store at Mount Lawley. We look forward to dressing you for your next occasion! Not in WA? Not a problem you can shop these styles online.

Mix & Match Your Cruise Wear | Smart Packing for Limited Space!


We're answering real questions from real women who shop with us! See what our Bunbury Staff have to say...

 There are so many people travelling these days and cruise are increasing in popularity. Everyone who travels, knows that the biggest challenge when going on a cruise is the limited space in your luggage. There are many onboard events to consider, from formal nights to a day on shore.

With some planning and smart shopping, you will be able to pack light, and still have many outfits by mixing and matching from our range of labels.

Start with basics such as the Joseph RIbkoff Black Purla Pant. This style is great for both evening and day wear.

Miranda Diamond Pant in white to create a dressy, casual resort-look

NYDJ Denim Jeans are super comfy to wear when travelling

The Joseph Ribkoff Hariette Pencil Skirt is the perfect bottom for all our Ribkoff and Lyman tops.

If you are on a budget, our Tres Belle and Take That casual tops are not only affordable, but also great travel pieces to wear with the Miranda Pant or NYDJ for a casual day on shore. Seven Sisters tops/shirts are lightweight and crushable without creasing and can be dressed up or down for many options.

For a special formal, evening, the Little Black Dress by Joseph Ribkoff with back bling feature with turn heads.

Take off the bling and team with the Donatella Jacket to give you a different look.

Our fabrics are all so easy to wear and don't crease, which gives you more time to go and enjoy yourself. So come in and see us and let us help you pack for an amazing time!

Shop the colours!

We're answering real questions from real women who shop with us! See what our Applecross Staff have to say...

Find your favourite shape in a top or pants, then make sure you buy the
other colours for a versatile wardrobe that you can mix and match.
You know they look good, so shop all the colours! That's the advice from the girls at our Applecross Store...

Our Recommendations are below:
You need pants that fit good, feel great and can be worn to work, then on out to play! Our core Purla Pant by Joseph Ribkoff in Navy or Black are the answer.

Team them with the Gretta Crop jacket in Navy or Black for great corporate wear. Together they create a smart and sophisticated look.
If you need a slightly wider leg pant, then go for the Calista Pant in black or white. They are also a great fit!

Team your pants with the ¾ sleeve Adela Top by Joseph Ribkoff. 
This top is a MUST for your wardrobe and comes in Black, Red & Navy, AND it looks fabulous with both the pants mentioned above.
For a sleeveless look, the Joseph Ribkoff Double Layered Carissa Core Cami in Black, Hot Pink, White & Royal Saphire is easy to mix and match with your existing wardrobe. Wear this style under the Gretta Crop Jacket and of course, they look great with the both the Purla and Calista Joseph Pants!

Our ‘’Miranda’’ Tummy Tuck Pants in the classic straight leg are a fabulous, flattering fit. Styles them with your boots (the hem will sit over your ankle boot), a flat, a heal or a wedge, they go with anything! The tummy tuck panel in the front keeps them snug all day long and they come in Black, Navy, Brown, Khaki, Grey, Beige and White .
For a 7/8th Length with a bit of Bling on the side, go for our Miranda Diamond Pant. This style also comes in an array of colours, Black, Navy, White, Brown and Taupe.

Modern Wedding Attire - The Black Trend

Do you love to wear black to EVERY event? Well good news... wearing black to weddings is on the rise!

Traditionally women have shied away from this dark hue when choosing their wedding frock, but fashion has evolved and so has our mindset. The key to picking the perfect style for the mother of the bride/groom, or guest of a wedding is first and foremost, comfort! If you are part of the bridal party, a perk of a black frock is you are camera ready at all times and don't have to worry about colour-clashing with another guest.

Black doesn't have to be boring, our wedding range includes stunning embellishments and features to make your look one of a kind!

Cruise in Style - Things to Pack

Part of the fun of a cruise is getting dressed up. The right clothes can really put you in the mood, and make your trip feel so much more enjoyable. Here’s a look at a few of the latest cruise wear trends to make your trip fabulous. 

cruise wear guide

What to pack when going a cruise? 

1. Crop pants

Perfect for walking around the ship or on an offshore excursion like shopping or sightseeing. If you're on the shorter side you can still wear cropped pants, just go for a slim cut crop pant.   The Miracle crop pants by Gordon Smith or these Miranda Pants are packing essentials.  They also look great with a wedge heel.


miranda white cropped pants

2. Floaty tops

Perfect to pair with crop pants - a floaty top has 'relaxed holiday' written all over it. A top like the Channing Top by Joseph Ribkoff is the perfect combination of relaxed easy dressing without compromising looks.

3. Sundress

 Pack a sundress or two! A maxi and midi dress is a good combination. A maxi can be worn with flat shoes and sun hat during the day and dressed up with heels and dangly earring and bangle for a night time on board concert.

This Carina midi sundress is perfect for travel in an easy care crinkle fabric.

4.  Dinner Date

For the evenings when you dine in a more formal setting or even at the "captain's table" you will want to pack a stylish dress. You can easily kick on after dinner while you're feeling glamourous ... perhaps for some dancing! 

This black drape goddess dress can be dressed up or down and will have your feeling ready for a gorgeous night out.

5. Don't forget a few layers. For cooler days or evenings pack a jacket and a cardigan. This Juanita Jacket looks great teamed with your white capri pants! 

Juanita Jacket by Joseph Ribkoff

Some extras to consider are; a few pairs of nice earrings, these help dress up any outfit (see above picture).  Some flat sandals in gold or silver,  metallics are more 'lux' and versatile than everyday white or black and tend to go with more outfits reducing your packing space. Add a cool pair of sunglasses, a gorgeous sun hat and finish with a versatile tote that will take you from the onboard pool deck to exploring the streets on your new destination.

Ok your off to a wedding but it's been a while. What are the trends for the wedding season this Autumn 2017.  What to wear as a wedding guest or even as Mother of the bride or groom?

 

Block colours are popular at the moment with gorgeous blues or corals.

Classic nude tones are still going strong this year and can be worn in any season. Very popular with Mother of the Bride and Groom as dresses in nude or champagne hues compliment most bridal party attire. Black is no longer taboo at weddings and is perfectly suited to more formal weddings.

Hem Lines are near the knee with figure flattering cuts and open sleeves.

Shoulders are bared just a little to give a romantic feel.

Sheer elements enhance your outfit. A soft layer over your dress is very flattering. A similar look can be achieved by adding sheer wrap to your wedding outfit.

Spring Racewear Guide

Ahh spring racing, what's not to love! Finally some warmer weather and a chance to shed winter layers for feminine outfits while enjoying champagne and a day of racing action. 

Select an outfit that best reflects your style, body shape and something you will feel comfortable in, nothing too small or too big. Wardrobe Fashion chooses racewear fashion to make you look and feel fabulous - racewear collection

 

Dresses to wear to horse racing events

Here are some hints to help you look and feel your best this spring racing carnival. 

Wear shoes that you can walk in all day long. There is nothing worse than sore feet and the Spring Racing Carnival is about enjoying yourself - don’t let a pair of shoes let you down! Low heels are fine and a great tip is to find a block heel for when you're standing on the lawn.

Styling isn’t limited to just the clothing. You can make a simple dress into an amazing outfit with accessories such as with jewellery, gloves, handbags, belts and shoes. A great tip is to work with no more than three colours in your look.

Dress according to the weather that day. Sometimes you need to adapt to the ever changing weather so have a jacket of cardigan handy. 

 

race day hair and makeup

 

Rarely in today's fashion do you get the chance to wear a beautiful head piece, so don't forget about a hat or fascinator to complete your outfit. A clever idea is to order something from your local florist that coordinates with your outfit for an effortless beautiful look. 

Some ideas for race day hair can be found here - race day hair

Style your hair and makeup to suit the look you have chosen. Remember race day is a daytime event so keep your makeup natural and fresh using nude tones, dewy skin (not too matte) and blushing cheeks is always a good look for spring racing fashion and don't forget the sunscreen - red shoulders and nose is not a glamourous look.  

Prior preparation can help make your day go smoothly and you will look polished - so don’t forget your nails, scrub your heels and book your hair appointment. 

Looking forward to the racing action - here is a link to the Spring Racing Calendar

onlione shopping tips for Joseph Ribkoff Clothing

General online shopping tips

  • When looking to buy anything online query the address from where items are shipped before purchasing them.  
  • Check to see what the retailer's returns and exchange policy is - you may get stung with large postage costs particularly if the retailer is outside Australia. 
  • Does the online store have a customer care number - not just an email. Can you speak to them during Australian business hours? 
  • Check the size guides and make sure the sizes stated are for Australian sizes. 
  • Unless you are familiar with the brand get a dressmaker to measure you so you have accurate measurements.  Measuring some of your favourite clothing pieces that you own can also help.

Deciding on the best outfit for your daughter or son's wedding can be exciting and daunting at the same time.  You want to look your best for your child and to compliment their wedding style so the wedding photos of you by their side look amazing.   There are a several things...

Trends for Mother of the Bride

Deciding on the best outfit for your daughter or son's wedding can be exciting and daunting at the same time. 
You want to look your best for your child and to compliment their wedding style so the wedding photos of you by their side look amazing.  
There are a several things to think of when choosing an outfit as Mother of the Bride or Groom.  What's your personal style? Does your child have a colour in mind for you. Would you feel more comfortable in an elegant dress and teamed with matching jacket, a suit or a more elaborate evening dress. 
At Wardrobe Fashion we see a lot of younger mothers wearing dresses with jackets. The jacket makes the dress appropriate for a chapel service, and it can be taken off for the reception later.
It has also become acceptable to wear, elegant outfits that show some skin. The general trend is moving away from the traditional styles and towards a more hip look.
Mothers often put themselves last and leave their wedding outfit choices until the last minute, and they don't give themselves enough time to get the dress they want. It is also helpful for the Mother of the Groom if you have your outfit early so she has time to select hers. 
We have in-store consultants to help you find the should complement your daughter's choices for herself and the wedding party both in color, style and in formality. Bring a picture of your daughters wedding dress and a picture or fabric swatch of bridesmaids dresses so we can best help you.
Your daughter may envision you in a certain style or shade, so be sure to ask the bride-to-be if she has any opinions about your wedding-day attire.  You'll also need to discuss your dress with the mother of the groom, so you'll avoid wearing clashing colors, or worse yet, showing up in the exact same colour.
If your daughter doesn't have her heart set on a particular shade for you, you'll have plenty of choices that will fit her color scheme. Bone, off-white, navy and black remain the most popular shades for mother of the bride while sage green, sienna and pale to bright blues are steadily gaining ground. Black is a fashionable choice for ultra formal weddings. Only white remains a wedding-day taboo.
It's best to start shopping as soon as your daughter has chosen her gown and her attendants' dresses. Give yourself a lot of time,  You should begin shopping at least six months in advance to really get what you want. This is an important event, and you don't want to have to settle for something that isn't quite right.
Lastly, pick a dress that you'll wear again. After the last picture is taken and the bouquet has been tossed, you'll still have your dress. If you make the right choice, you'll have a great style that will work for cocktail parties, other weddings or after 5 event. Something simple, like a suit with a long skirt or a gown with a jacket, can be worn more than once.
Don't make the mistake of buying your accessories first. Find the perfect outfit to suit your individual style and then look for shoes, bag, jewellery and hat and or gloves if you like.
