The Event Edit.



Its that time of year again where every waking moment is spent planning outfits for weddings, balls, work functions and alike.

Let’s be honest it’s a great source of procrastination from your day-to-day grind at work but wouldn’t it be nice to take the pressure off?
Well fasten your wheelie chairs and hang onto to your keyboards because here it is…. the event edit that will have all of your outfits planned in no time.
We are taking a look at some of our favorite pieces in store with Mona babe and mumma, Bree.


To begin lets get back to basics with a little black dress. Only this time we are not only channeling the sexy but also the fun and the flirty. The Shona Joy Pass The Knot Layered Mini Dress is a great way to update the LBD in your wardrobe. This piece can be perfect for both the summer and winter months, and can be worn with or without the belt for a flowy feel.

The Shona Joy – The Pass The Knot Layered Mini Dress

The Midi dress is still holding strong and wont be going anywhere. This sexy silhouette is flattering on any body shape, pop a leather jacket and some ankle boots on for a more casual event, or get glam with some amazing heels and stunning jewelry. Also the beautiful pink hues of the Nicholas Deep V dress and plunging neckline – what a breath of fresh air.

Shona Joy – Glacier Cocktail Midi Dress



Here at Monalisa we love the floral prints and patterns that are around this season. Zimmermann have really got it right with this one, teaming the light florals back with black to really make this dress pop. Going in at the waist and then skimming over the hips makes a flattering shape that will forgive you for all the food and drink you had at last weekends Bar Mitzva.

Zimmermann – Fortune Floral Ray Dress

And last but not least we love a skirt and top combo. Break it down and wear it with jeans and boots or cami’s and coats the choices are endless. We love this Shona Joy Chateau two piece for a winter warmer that is still perfect for any occasion.

So there it is, all you need for any occasion this season.

Have a wine for us at your next event,


Much love Monalisa






These boots were made for….

The leaves are starting to change, the breeze is a little fresher and our morning coffee orders are becoming more and more necessary, the colder months are most definitely upon us.


I for one am not a huge fan of this time of year. However, I am a damn big fan of winter fashion!
What’s not to love about colors, textures, and layering…. all without looking like the Michelin man!

Honest truth, the basis off all good winter fashion is a good pair of boots. Not only do they get you from A to B without ruining your latest pedi with frost bite and mud but they can turn almost any clothing item into the ultimate transeasonal piece.

This season your boots should be all about the detailing, we are spoilt for choice here at Monalisa with prints, zippers, buckles, plates and more.

The Leopard print boot will be one trend you wont be able to miss. These boots are not for the faint hearted initially but can be styled down to suit everyone’s needs. Think of these boots like a statement necklace – let them do the talking.

Skin Terrain boot (pre-order), One Teaspoon Lecult Shirt & Nobody Cult Skinny Power Black.



The thick block heel we have grown to love and depend on for those long days and wine infused nights is getting a winter makeover. These boots may seem basic but they will be your saviors. Understated enough to go with all of your favorite pieces but, can still hold their own in your shoe collection. These ones wont get pushed to the back with the ‘boring shoes’ they will stay center stage!

Windsor Smith Hassi, White Suede Tumble Jacket & Zimmermann Playsuit (Instore now & Online soon)

Throughout our wardrobes we all have those pieces that we reinvent from season to season. Your boots should be no exception to this unspoken rule; this is where the cut out boot comes in. These boots are perfect for summer festivals and festivities but can still be great winter warmers.

Soles Hardware Lane boots, Stevie May Snakes & Ladders Maxi, Life With Bird Boucle Sweater & Nobody Cult Skinny Addict.

With so many great shoe labels instore and all the boot styles you can imagine, they will literally be walking in and out! This is only the first autumn/winter drop and we are lusting with anticipation as to what’s to come, keep your eyes peeled so your not left out in the cold.

On that note we’re off to Expedia fantasy trips to Aspen and really get into the winter spirit.

With love,
Monalisa x x

The colour palate for this season is going to be really interesting; there is definitely something for everyone.
