OOTD: Luxe

It was Ben's birthday last weekend and he is soon off for a work rotation in China. Every weekend has become even more special for us as we count down the weeks until he departs. So with that in mind and the fact it was his birthday, last Saturday I wanted to look like a total fox!

I've had this gorgeous Meri by Design sequin cape in my wardrobe for the last few weeks. Its been hanging next to my mirror and not a day has gone by where I haven't looked it, touched it or sighed at its fabulousness. Its such a gorgeous statement piece and I knew it would be perfect for Ben's birthday cocktails!

Slip: City Chic
Necklace: Colette
Heels: Torrid
Clutch: a rocking vintage find

I've never felt more luxurious. The weight, feel and movement of this jacket just feels luxe! I wanted to keep the outfit otherwise simple, so styled it with a plain black slip and minimal jewellery. A cape like this doesn't need much, its such a wow piece by itself that it makes everything look like understated glam. I used my vintage gold clutch to carry my essentials and I love the way it picks up the subtle gold tones.

Based in New South Wales, I first came across Meri by Design when I saw them on the runway at the Curvy Couture Roadshow (check out my post about them here!). From the first opulent piece until the last, I was hooked! I adore the cuts and elegant design of the brands collections, each one is so distinctive and eye-catching. I love that there is a high fashion plus-size label like this that is Aussie made and designed. It makes me proud to see the leaps and bounds Australian plus-size fashion is taking. I can put this cape on and feel like a movie star, its everything a wardrobe investment piece should be: high fashion, luxurious, timeless and glamorous.

How would you wear this sequin cape? 


  1. This cape is perfection!!! I love everything about this look!!!

  2. I love your blond hair with this cape. It's like a Debbie Harry moment modernized. Very pretty.

  3. Super beautiful! The shoes also had an extra special touch too since they tie in so nicely with your cape.

  4. That cape is a thing of dreams! I think I'd wear it over a black dress and flats, and keep my jewellery simple like you did. xx

  9. Olivia you look amazing! Your smoking hot look has given me the inspiration to buy this to wear to a upcoming wedding, I was wondering if you could please tell me what size you purchased and are wearing in these photos (sorry to get so personal)? I get nervous when purchasing from brands I have never brought from and whose sizing I am not sure of. I had a look at this item and the sizing options are: "Extra Small 10-12, Small 14-16, Medium 18-20, Large 22-24, Extra Large 24 +". Your help is very appreciated! Thanks dj xo
