It was a wet and woolly weekend, down in the South West of WA… but a sneak preview of our good friend and fabulous West Australian designer Ben Conroy’s new collection under his new label, BASE BY BEN was hot hot hot…

Bev and I make no bones about our love of a good basic… and BASE BY BEN has them in spades.

  A great tee shall be the foundation of a great outfit…

A brilliantly cut pant will maketh the woman (or man)…

BASE BY BEN will have a plethora of men’s and women’s tees, shirts, pants and skirts of which can be unisex too – Nic has spied a couple of the mens tees that she will be all over.

Inspired by monochrome and creating a capsule of well designed, everyday pieces from quality fabrics – we cannot WAIT to see the full collection this Spring.

Nicole is a rare mix of glitz and pragmatism. She loves redefining her style and has an unhealthy obsession with lipgloss, Rag & Bone and champagne. She makes party planning look effortless and when she's not blogging or researching something she's spending time with two rather rambunctious redheads, Max & Charlie.
