My Favourite Things with Minna Gilligan

Blogged by: Minna Gilligan 25 Sep 2014 View comments
This Country Road print immediately appealed to me as it's quite still and calming. Ferns and palm trees seem very '70s indoor gardening to me, so I couldn't resist.”


“Hiding in the pile of silver streamers is Yves Saint Laurent lipstick in number 1 from Mecca Maxima. It's a perfectly classic colour which lends itself to glamorous nights on the town, tentatively clutching cocktail glasses. The packaging is to die for—it's almost art deco in the rectangular nature of the tube, and the iconic YSL logo will never be passé. I love it. I am wearing this lipstick in all of the photographs.”



“I think that Gorman really pioneered the 'socks with sandals' trend, which personally seems very Melburnian to me. Their patterned socks just beg to be on display, and in the colder spring days (when it's not going to rain of course!) socks and sandals are a winning combination.

On the left I'm wearing Gorman Copper clogs and Country Road grid socks in Spearmint. On the right are the most amazing platform clogs from Wittner which are just begging to be worn for a night dancing at Studio 54.”



“Kinki Gerlinki has a really fun range of retro-throwback clothes, which I (of course) love. Here I am wearing Kinki Gerlinki turtleneck, Kinki Gerlinki Vespa skirt and Miu Miu sunglasses from Sunglass Hut. I was channelling '60s beatnik/Barbra Riley painting vibes with the visually confusing opposing patterns.”


“These Miu Miu cat eye sunglasses from Sunglass Hut are literally to die for. Subtly adorned with transparent linear patterns of oranges and greens around the tops of the frames, they have ’60s carnival or retro Disneyland vibes. The cat eye is on point while at the same time not being too severe. It's sort of like someone in the ’60s designed them, trying to imagine what the sunglasses of the future would be like. They are incredible and would be flattering on anyone.”
