F-Files ….this week

Winter jewels

Brisbane label Tengdahl’s winter collection is one of modern classics: a well-cut jacket, the timeless smoking suit and classic capri pants make for wardrobe staples for years to come. Jewel tone separates in teal, red, orange and aquamarine are of-the-moment and add vibrancy to a winter look. Call Brisbane Arcade on 3210 0263 or Emporium on 3257 0569 or buy online.


Canine couture

We normally reserve these tips for two, not four-legged fashionistas, but why should we have all the fun? Best friends can stay warm in winter too with the Doggone Gorgeous RSPCA-endorsed winter clothing range, featuring the very on-trend tartan, RRP$29.99, or leopard print if your pooch is so inclined. Available at Big W or shop online.


Style for sale

Racing fashion doyenne Sandra Robson is having a sale to clear her stockrooms of years worth of winning fashions on the field outfits, hats and accessories. Sandra has hundreds of vintage and handmade dresses, jackets, capes, hats, fascinators, handbags and shoes to sell including outfits made for her racing industry-renowned granddaughters, Amy and Ashleigh.

Too cool headwear

Cool mornings call for some consideration of your headwear and now you can embrace the chilly winter mornings in cosy berets and beanies from Morgan and Taylor. The berets and beanies are available in angora or wool blends and prices start from $44.95. Morgan and Taylor is available at Myer and David Jones, or buy online.


Dress to impress

Cleverly cut to flatter a curvy figure, the Diana Ferrari Yvonne dress (RRP $149.95 pictured) features a v-neckline to minimise a large bust, and gently gathered waist to highlight the mid-section but disguise the tummy and thighs. Diana Ferrari stocks size 6-18. Visit Brisbane stores at Westfield Chermside and Garden City, or at DFO, or buy online.
