Those of you who follow me on Instagram would have seen that I’ve had a busy couple of months. And although I’ve never been one to complain about the trials and tribulations of working in such a fast paced industry, there’s no denying that certain parts of my life have been neglected as of late; This blog included.

At the same time, I’ve been feeling enormously grateful. I have recently had the opportunity to visit some incredible places. Work with an incredible team both in New York, Paris and at home. As well as meet some beautiful people along the way. All of which has made the jet-lag, sleepless nights and an additional five or so kilos well worth every moment.

For the past few days I have tried to grab every rare and spare minute I could find to try and create some exciting travel and fashion content for this blog from my recent overseas trips. Yet I’ve still been too distracted to finish any of them. In fact there are some draft posts which I have been meaning to publish since the beginning of this year (like my LA and NYC travel diaries). Hopefully I will be sharing some of these in the very near future.

In the mean time I’ll leave you with the unbelievably beautiful Zimmermann RTW Maples Collection. Which perfectly combines deconstructed lace, fluid floral prints, pleated paneling, shearling, leather and luxe enamel earrings to create every girls dream winter wardrobe. Mine included!

My favourite pieces from the collection; The Maples Embroidered Robe Coat (if only I had a spare $3000) . The Riot Jacket . Boudiour Mini Dress in black lace. Supportive Dress in black lace. Smock Dress in black . Flounce Camisole in black silk and the Supportive Skirt in black lace. To view the entire Zimmermann RTW Maples Collection and buy some effortless and ethereal pieces for yourself, visit their website here.

Australia's Top 50 Influencer Awards

I am so excited to announce that My Blonde Closet has been shortlisted for Australia’s Top 50 Influencer Awards. A new initiative which not only recognises bloggers and influencers, but also celebrates their success and impact across the various digital channels. The winner will be selected in just a few weeks by a judging panel which includes the chief executive of ShowPo, Jane Lu. As well as industry experts from The Australian Financial Review, Cosmopolitan, Buzz Feed and Nova who you can read all about here.

I feel amazingly humbled to be nominated alongside some of Australia’s most inspiring and impossibly talented bloggers. Some of whom I count as daily reads of my own. The truth is that this blog is much more than just a running commentary of the clothes I’m wearing. Or my favourite new beauty products. It’s a place where I share a part of my life. So, for those of you that still take the time to drop by, I want to thank-you from the very bottom of my heart. It really means so much.

PetiteGrand Jewellery

Unique in its simplicity, australian jewellery label PetiteGrand offers effortless style with pieces that can be worn during the day and then transcend into evening. They are little pieces of timeless luxury transcending the seasons, you can build on and layer to create your own expression. PetiteGrand designer Tanja is influenced by everything around her and designs pieces by simply creating by hand what she would want to wear, everyday pieces, the purity of geometric shapes and the understated elegance of precious metals and silk cord…

How did you come to designing PetiteGrand ?
My love of jewellery design combined with my love of making/creating something with my hands.

What is the meaning behind the name, PetiteGrand ?
The jewellery I do is very fine and delicate.. small… petite. The grand came from my love of the word GRAND – when something is beautiful, big and grand. I believe small can still be very grand.

What process do you go through in designing your pieces ?
I pick a theme for the collection to assist me to rein in my creative thought process, otherwise my brain goes crazy with the possibilities. Then I decide on what looks, shapes, metals and colours I would like to do. Then the real fun starts, I start making and designing the pieces.

Who are your pieces designed for ?
I guess someone who sees beauty in the little things around us.

Do you design pieces for yourself or your own style ?
Yes, initially I do design them for me. Every item I design I have to love and want to wear myself.

How would you describe your own style ?
Very similar to my label, simple, classic, understated  – but it always gets noticed.

What are your essential pieces within your closet ?
My jeans, Bassike t’shirts, Dylan Kain bag and Zimmermann swimwear.

What is your most cherished piece in your own jewellery collection ?
A pair of earrings my mother gave me when I was 5, an amazing Mawi necklace and the 1st silver ring I made.

What inspires you ?
Absolutely everything – Inspiration mainly comes when I’m not looking for it.

What outfit should PetiteGrand be teamed with ?
Anything from jeans and a t-shirt to drinks with friends, to your wedding day. That’s what I think is so wonderful about the jewellery, it fits into every aspect of your life.

What is the underlying philosophy of your brand ?
The philosophy of the brand is to design and create beautiful pieces that are unique and simple but always make a statement.

What does the future hold for PetiteGrand ?
Hopefully lots of wonderful things!
