JESSICA MCDONALD, 30
I AM IN Yarra Street, South Yarra
I WORK in human resources.
I AM WEARING a jacket and skirt combo from Eliya The Label. The top I have on underneath is Kookai and the shoes are Wittner. The necklace and matching earrings are Swarovski. They’re actually my wedding earrings and necklace, so I wore them on my wedding day. I chose this outfit because it’s my 30th birthday party today and I wanted to make a bit of a statement. I wanted to stand out for my birthday, so I’m wearing something that’s a little bit different and out there.
MY STYLE IS outgoing but subtle.
I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF Nadia Bartel. She always looks classy in the way she dresses, but also bold.
MY FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP ARE David Jones because it’s all there, but I do a lot of shopping online. I like Eliya The Label. This jacket and skirt set is the first thing I’ve actually bought from them. I also like Faithfull The Brand and Camilla and Marc. For work clothes, I like Country Road.
MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS when I was 16 and wore this pink fluorescent dress. I look back on it and think, “Oh my God, why did I wear that?” I didn’t think it was bad at the time, but I wouldn’t wear that now. It was probably from Supre.
WHEN I WAS A KID I WORE I was pretty sporty as a kid, so I always wore sporty clothes. When I was in high school, I would wear skirts, tops, a lot of dresses and off-the-shoulder tops.
I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD IN Birkenstocks. I hate them.
