Workchic: Your Guide to Office Cool


Girl wearing pink wrap


A little colour play makes for a wonderful working day! Wouldn’t you agree? Amy looking pretty in pink...what shade are you rocking?

    Pimms drink


In 1840 the owner of a London oyster bar, James Pimm, first invented and sold his thirst-quenching cocktail, (the original Gin-Sling). Using gin, quinine, and a secret mixture of herbs and botanicals.

Traditionally a summer drink...add some brandy for a delicious after 4, Friday winter treat!

What our clients are thinking...

“Trending here for the ladies is more smart casual, definitely not suits – for meeting clients – polished but
not OTT, trendy scarves, bangles etc, just above the knee length for skirts and dresses with boots or heels.
For the guys – open necked shirts, coloured trousers. However for meeting clients definitely smarter suit attire and sometimes a tie depending on the type of meeting/client. Generally though, smart pants with jacket”.

“Oh and, always dress down Friday!”
- Michelle Callingham, PA, Brannigans, Executive Recruiters


Coco Chanel Perfume



Coco Mademoiselle was introduced in 2001 and is marketed to women in their 20s and 30s. Top notes: orange, bergamot, mandarin, Tunisian curaƧao.
“Amazing perfume, lasts all day. Beautiful, luxurious bottle and is my staple signature everyday scent - perfect for work!” – Julie

     knee high boots



The right pair of shoes can make all the difference when it comes to completing a look and every woman should own a great pair of boots!

“These boots have proven to be timeless”, says Selma, “6 years later and still going strong...”




Stylish and practical. “This makes bringing lunch from home, fun!” – Rachel

  Black and white shell bracelets



Bedrock Bones started in 2009 with a collaboration with Kate Sylvester on her Summer collection “Take a Hike” at the RAFW Show in Sydney. Bedrock is inspired by the Flintstones (duh!), childhood memories, Tokyo girls, and everything cute.

“Black and white are the power couple of fashion”. – Emma


What our clients are thinking...

“I think that blocks of black and white/cream are definitely big - so white shirts with black collars for example. Pleats in skirts/dresses, and as we move closer to winter, patterned stockings!
