My Styling Session at Veronika Maine – Westfield Miranda

Veronika Maine rates high on my list of favourite stores, particularly for work wear. I like their classic, edgy style that will look good in any corporate culture. For my next instalment of new Spring Trends at Westfield Miranda*, I wanted to look at some of the new pieces from Veronika Maine and I enlisted the help of Westfield Miranda ‘s  Stylist, Adriana Fernandez.

With over 25 years experience in the Fashion Industry, she has an amazing sense of style and balance. After a thorough consultation in the glamorous Styling Suite  where Adriana and I discussed all my wants, needs, dislikes and likes, we headed to the Veronika Maine Store.

We decided I would choose some pieces and Adriana would pick some as well. “Am I ready to get out of my (black) comfort zone? Sure!”

Rather than piling everything in the change room, Adriana explained that we will try one outfit at the time, because it can become quite overwhelming in a small change room.


Outfit Number 1.

Veronika Maine, Westfield Miranda
Veronika Maine Lace Trim Cami, Metallic Print Pleated Midi Skirt, Stretch Suiting Collar less jacket

Out of my comfort zone? Hell yeah! Can you tell by my face? I felt a little nanna in that skirt, but now I look back at the photos I am thinking that this could actually work quite well.


Outfit nr 2.

Lace trim Cami, Green Bomber Jacket and Border Striped Tapered Leg Pant

I am in LOVE with these pants! It has a front wrap and cuffs with a cutout detail. I like how Adriana used a little colour with the cute khaki bomber jacket. I loved this outfit.

Border Striped Tapered Leg pant, this time with the One shoulder Tie Knit, and the Textured Spliced Vest

It is just getting better and better. Adriana pulled out things off racks, hitched my pants up and draped this vest over my shoulders. She never stopped and ran around trying different accessories. Absolutely adored this look.

Knit Cutaway tank and Midi Ruffle Skirt

Now, here you can really tell that Adriana knows her stuff. I would have NEVER picked this skirt, thought I would have been way too short for this. But I think it looks great! The knit top streamlines the whole look.  And it is a pop of colour to break away from the black and white!

Veronika Maine Fluted Dress

I picked this dress. I saw it in the Veronika Maine new Summer Campaign and loved the look of this. But when I tried it on, it just wasn’t suited to my shape. Someone taller, perhaps, and not too busty perhaps? Anyway, it was fun trying it on, a great dress just not for me.


Outfit nr 6.

Side Ruffle Top with Double Weave Wide Leg Crop Pants.

Ok. This is SO me. I can see that top going really well with the striped pants too. Such a great work look!

Excuse the stunned mullet look, but this is Adriana adjusting, adding, draping, undoing, doing up and basically making sure everything looks just right.


Outfit nr 7.

Lace up top and matching rich textured weave pants in a gorgeous navy

This was a great outfit. The unusual lace up drape, made this a very edgy piece. Loved the matching culottes.


What an experience to be styled like that.  Adriana took only a few hours to put 7 outfits together, and another couple of outfits for a special event I am going to next week (pictures to come!).  Adriana says:

I work closely with all my clients to understand their needs and their budget and deliver style solutions that suit their body shape, lifestyle and accentuating their best features.

Everyone deserves to be Styled no matter their age, size or budget and my philosophy is simple “look good to feel great” and my approach to fashion styling is positive and sincere.


How deflating can it be to be hunting for an outfit for a special event, and you can not find what you want. Or you are in need of a new wardrobe for a new job. Or you have a wardrobe full of clothes but don’t know how to put everything together. A session with a Stylist can actually put you on the right track and set you up for easier shopping in the future.

I highly recommend attending a Styling Session,  (what a great gift this would make!) and I highly recommend Adriana if Westfield Miranda is in your hood. She just “got” me. She “got” my style and was not afraid to steer me in another direction to nudge me out of “black”.

Thank you for an awesome evening Adriana and Westfield Miranda, I feel like I have been shopping with a new bestie! (and wait til you see what she picked for me for a special charity luncheon next week!)
