Spotted – Shelly Horton in the Maiocchi Midi

We spotted Shelly on Channel 7 all frocked up in Maiocchi. Pictured above is Shelly in the Head Over Heels Skirt. The top is made from super soft bamboo jersey and has handmade quirky buttons as the shoulder detailing. The midi skirt is made from beautiful Japanese Cotton and The vertical panels are guaranteed to flatter, creating a slimmer appearance and instantly elongating the figure. 

Pictured below is Shelly wearing the Neverland Dress in Charcoal. This easy to wear asymmetrical stretch dress is one of our most popular shapes due to its figure flattering qualities. We love the folding and button detain on neckline in contrast fabric. The texture of this ‘brocade’ like stretch fabric will hide any lumps and bumps.

Guest Blogger from Re: My Style talk Christmas Dresses and Gifts

Some of you may know the lovely Lise from Re:My Style. We asked her to give us her top tips for the festive season, on what to wear and what to buy for christmas. These are her top picks for the upcoming December Christmas month!

This year my Christmas social calendar is fuller than a certain reality TV star’s hips and bank account, and it’s fair to say I’m feeling a touch overwhelmed. From work parties to neighbourhood barbecues and get-togethers with besties, there seems to be something on bi-weekly, not to mention an obscene amount of Christmas shopping to do. Dear Santa…HELP!

So my mission this silly season? A one-stop-shop approach that will satiate my need for party-worthy frocks AND provide me with a plethora of gorgeous gifts in one fell swoop. Oh hello, Maiocchi!

So here it is. My Maiocchi Selections for Christmas Chaos, 2014, per event and per gift recipient. You’re welcome!

WORK CHRISTMAS PARTY - Fun yet work-place appropriate. Head-turning yet polished. Winner! The Dreamsicle Dress in Red, this dress is a patchwork dream. Perfect combination of Japanese Cotton mixed in a cute as a button 1950’s style. Vintage cool.

NEIGHBOURHOOD DRINKS - Casual chic. Comfort is key. Things may get messy….
She’s Delusional Dress in Black, I’ve been told this dress is Dee’s favourite and I can see why, made from soft Japanese cotton, these breezy carefree frock is a total winner and 100% Maiocchi style. Wear with or without the Reversible She's Delusional Bolero.
CHRISTMAS DAY - Festive, fresh and classic. Bring on the apricot truffles!
The Earn Your Stripes Dress in Flame - the perfect vintage style dress for Christmas, made from Linen and cotton it’s sure to keep cool while gorging on homemade treats.


KINDY TEACHERS - We have a tradition in our family whereby the boys choose a beautiful Christmas tree decoration to gift to each of their teachers at the end of the year. We love it, they love it, the teachers love it! Total festive love fest. Prices range from $12- $30 and can be bought in our Maiocchi Stores.

 

BEST FRIEND - One of my best girlfriend’s is expecting a little girl next year, so I’ve hit the jackpot with this pressie idea! Firstly, a divinely cute Mini Maiocchi dress for her new little lady to grow into. 100% cotton and 100% adorable, she is sure to cry hormonal tears of joy over this piece. Secondly, a functional and funky Maiocchi tote bag, because as she stands on the precipice of motherhood, I need to arm her with the tools required to become a stylish sherpa. For we all know that she will soon be carrying ALL THE THINGS FOR EVERYONE. Get ready, girlfriend!



MUM - Mum’s home decor seems to be going through a mid-life crisis at the moment. The lounges have exited stage left, the art-work has been re-homed to my sister’s place, and mum is on a redecorating mission like no other. These custom retro print Maiocchi cushions will definitely elevate me to ‘favourite daughter’ status this year. Awesome. Oh! Have you seen the new Maiocchi Tea Towels - perfect stocking filler.
