Style Confidence


I've not always had style confidence. It's something that has evolved with time. There have been days when I have lacked the confidence to pull off certain looks.

One of the things that helps to boost your style confidence is feeling good in yourself. If you feel good in yourself, you will feel good in what you wear. I honestly believe self-belief and a healthy body image makes a huge difference with what you choose to wear and how to choose to wear it.


Alongside with feeling good about yourself in order to boost your style confidence, wearing what suits you is really important. I have read a plethora of style books (stay tuned for a post about my favourites!) which explain the different body types and what clothes suit each one. When you find a style that flatters you, stick to it! Buy different colours and experiment with patterns and prints as well to add variety to your wardrobe.


Here's what I do. I find I enjoy wearing skirts and dresses more than pants as I find them to be most flattering on my body shape. I often choose A-line skirts and dresses because I know they suit me. I steer clear of anything that is too clingy or narrow. Now that I know what I like and what I feel good in, it's a no-brainer when it comes to shopping. I have even bought skirts online (my gorgeous Yeojin Bae skirt is one of them). I could never do that with pants!

In summary, believing in yourself helps your confidence , alongside having a healthy body image. Knowing what looks great on you is the final step in gaining the style confidence you need in order to rock any look you want to achieve! 

Keep being fabulous!

Yours in style,

  4. I agree whole-heartedly. Self confidence is a big key is looking fabulous. You carry yourself well and you can almost pull off any look. But I am also a big believer in dressing to suit your body shape. You don't always have to wear the latest trends if they don't suit you. If you do, you may end up looking not trendy at all if the clothing doesn't suit your body shape. Find what's best for you and work that.

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
