LBD in the Country

This weekend, we were fortunate enough to attend a wedding in the beautiful countryside of Creswick and the weather was perfect for the occasion. The bride wore a stunning champagne gown, whilst the groom opted for a full white attire. Overall, it was a beautiful celebration of the couple's love for one another, and it was wonderful to be a part of this.

I chose to wear a dress which I was actually going to sell on Ebay. I have never worn this dress to any occasion before, as it had never properly fitted me. I tried it on a couple of months ago and was pleasantly surprised by its perfect fit. I'm glad I kept it!

I found this dress during a special outing to Bairnsdale with my husband. As we were walking along the main street, we came acros a quaint vintage-inspired boutique on the main street. The name escapes me now, but the experience doesn't. There were so many treasures in this place, that I found it almost impossible to know where to begin! As we were about to leave, I noticed a sales rack and found the perfect little black dress, made by Melbourne-based designer; Very Very








Every stylish woman must own a LBD, and an A-line shape is flattering on most figures. I especially love the three-button detail on the left shoulder and the button detailing on the slash pockets, as well as the silhouette of this style. I kept the accessories very simple, with a stand-out handbag used as the main accessory. This Louis Vuitton Alma bag in Monogram canvas has a lot of history, given that in the 1930's,  Gaston Vuitton created this bag for the late Coco Chanel upon her request. It oozes femininity and style. I just adore it! 








Next time I wear this dress, I shall style it with a colourful silk scarf to bring a splash of colour into the ensemble. I was going to purchase a scarf to wear on this particular occasion, but hadn't found anything striking enough! I think I am in need of some serious vintage shopping! 

How do you like to wear your LBD? I'd love to know! 


I am wearing: Very Very Melbourne dress, Repetto Lola Suede pumps from Cecylia, Rede London Elegance hoisery, Alma Monogram canvas Louis Vuitton handbag. Jewellery: Pearl stud earrings, gold Pandora charm bracelet, coral/red Indian beaded bracelet, gold watch.

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally, especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove.
So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes. 
Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection:





Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals.
Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!
Yours in style,
