Here at Feather & Noise we love Makin’ Noise with inspiring women we discover & love! Let us introduce you to the gorgeous Sonia Styling. Sonia joined us in Melbourne to shoot her Christmas Whishlist from Feather and Noise.....

 

Here’s a hot tip for you…

 

When the Feather and Noise team ask you if you’d like to shoot with them, always say yes.

 

Always.

 

 

It doesn’t matter that you won’t know what you’re wearing or where you’ll be shooting, you’ll be guaranteed to love everything they pick for you and have an absolute ball!

 

This was most certainly the case when I flew from Adelaide to Melbourne for a visit that combined business with pleasure.

 

On a beautiful and warm Melbourne afternoon, I found myself in sunny St Kilda with Ali, Jess and photographer extraordinaire, Katie.

 

The two hours flew by in a flurry of outfit changes, laughter (lots of laughter!), an icy cold lemon squash drinks break and confused-slash-amused glances from passersby. Heck, we even got to see the new site for the next season of The Block!

 

It was so much fun and I made a promise to the girls that we have to do it every single time I’m in town. It’s our standing date, ladies!

 

Now, I’ve been asked to share my favourite pieces from this gorgeous collection – which is kind of like choosing your favourite child – but, I’ll give it my best shot. Here we go…

 

 

Outfit #1 Daisy Gingham Dress 

 

How amazing is this dress?! A little bit Audrey Hepburn and a whole lot perfect for Christmas. It has an incredibly flattering cut, an elasticised waist and can be dressed up with heels and a belt or dressed down with flats and a boater. Such a great piece to have in your wardrobe, ready for any party season occasion.

 

 

Outfit #2 Botanical Jumpsuit Navy 

 

Well, this was an unexpected love at first sight number! While I do love a jumpsuit, I don’t tend to wear wide legged pants very often. But this piece? It just ticks all the boxes. I love the blue for summer and it’s so light and comfortable. Plus, a one piece is an instant outfit. Easy!

 

 

 

 

Outfit #3 Brooklyn Cape and Danni Jean

 

OK, this a very ‘Sonia During The Week’ kind of outfit. I run my own business and work from home, so this is the perfect smart casual ensemble. I’m a huge cape fan, especially in the warmer weather and these jeans? Ladies, call off the search – the perfect pair of jeans have been found! High (but not too high) waist, just the right amount of stretch and distressing detail, and the magic length that means no alterations required. Add. To. Cart!

 

 

 

Outfit #4 Dotty Short Sleeve Dress

 

In the warmer weather, I love dresses that are simply ‘slip on and go’ – minimal fuss with maximum impact. And this dress fits that bill perfectly. It’s flirty, fun and fabulous. An adorable choice for a day at the beach, BBQ by the pool, or date night at your favourite bar. Baby blue, I adore you!

 

 

 

Outfit #5 Jennifer Blouse and Tori Shorts 

 

This might sound crazy, but I’ve had a shorts phobia for most of my adult life. What can I say? I don’t love my thighs. But these shorts made me forget my silliness and I felt so good in them! The vertical stripes are super flattering and I loved balancing out the shorts with a beautiful floaty white top. Two great pieces to mix into your summer wardrobe.
