Little Black Skirt (LBS)

One of my favourite labels is Max & Co, the trendier, youthful label of MaxMara, an Italian brand which has been in operation since the early 1950s.

During a recent visit to Max & Co, I was on the lookout for a skirt I could wear for both casual and formal occasions. While perusing their gorgeous garments from Max & Co's Spring/Summer 2018 collection, I came across a Little Black Skirt (LBS) in ribbed faille. The fit was so flattering on my petite frame and I absolutely loved the pockets, so I just had to purchase it right then and there! 

I am hoping to wear my new LBS on Valentine's Day. My husband and I are going out for lunch to a fancy Italian restaurant. I think I will pair it with a silk navy blouse and black patent pumps. 

Have you had any really great fashion purchases recently? What are you doing for Valentine's Day?

I'd love to hear from you, so please add your response in the section below.

Burberry September 2017

For years now, Burberry has been one of my favoured British design houses. Led by Christopher Bailey at the design helm, the collection for September, 2017, is edgy, contemporary and yet very eclectic. With the addition of tartan, this collection stays true to British history and tradition.
Of course, I am most partial to the tartan skirt. I have two in my arsenal.

Enjoy your week!

Ralph Lauren Collection Pre-Fall '17

In my eyes, no other designer does it quite like Ralph Lauren. I guess what appeals to me the most is the timelessness of the garments and  the sheer fact the garments are classics, which means they will still look fabulous in years to come. 

Of course, a designer must know what looks best on the woman's figure. I love the way Ralph Lauren garments skim a woman's curves and highlight the most flattering areas. 

My absolute favourite piece from the new Ralph Lauren Collection for Pre-Fall '17, consists of a two piece tweed jacket and pant ensemble, the Helene Jacket which highlights the shoulders and pants skimming the hips. So chic, so classic and timeless. 

What is your favourite piece from this collection?

Ralph Lauren Never Lets Me Down

There's one brand that never lets me down, and that's the iconic American designer label, Ralph Lauren. I still own several oxford shirts which I wear to work that I bought years ago. They are still in good nick, despite the numerous times they have been worn. Now that says a lot about the quality and craftsmanship of the brand. That's why I will continue to purchase Ralph Lauren garments. 

What is your favourite go-to, "never-let's-you-down" label?

Enjoy the long weekend, peeps from Australia!

Back to my favourites

Well, I am finally back on the blog and boy, have I missed it. Life has been extremely hectic and I have had little down-time of late. My work a a primary teacher, whilst rewarding, is hectic, crazy and demanding. It is report writing time for me, and I am hoping that writing on the side, will help get me through all the stress. I have missed posting on here but now I am back, it feels wonderful! The blog is definitely one of my favourites in my life.

Speaking of favourites, today my most favourite, "can't live without" beauty product is now back on the shelf in my vanity. I am talking about Creme de la Mer: the ultrarich creme. I do not know how I have survived without this for as long as I have.

The price is quite excessive, but I strongly believe that you get what you pay for. If I added up the total price of all of the beauty products I have used recently, I think I would come fairly close to breaking even. You see, when you buy inexpensive, low range beauty products, the results are not as good, and you need to used double the quantity, so as a consequence, you run out of them quicker.

So I am content with having these two favourites back in my life!

I would love to hear about your "favourites". Leave your comments below!

M Missoni

My husband found this M Missoni dress hanging on the racks at Myer, Melbourne. Luckily it was in my size; IT 38 (Italian sizing). Every time I wear this dress, it makes me feel amazing. If a garment can make you feel that good, it's a keeper, as far as I'm concerned. That's why I firmly believe in investment dressing. I can honestly see myself wearing this dress in years to come.

new lengths

After years of growing my hair, I finally got the chop and it feels absolutely amazing. I cannot remember the last time my hair felt this healthy. 

How do you like my new look?
