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.

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

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!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
