Blasted Belts!

The only real reason I have ever worn a leather belt in my life was to keep my Levi 501's from falling off me when I had lost weight! 

At present, I own two belts, but they are not leather. One belongs to a Max & Co skirt and it's very functional, sequinned & cute. The other is a satin number which I wrap around my waist and wear as a belt. It belonged to a skirt which I no longer wear. Both belts are comfortable as they don't dig into your skin, unlike their leather counterparts.

Like scarves, I feel that belts are a tad annoying. I cannot seem to bring myself to wearing one. They just feel uncomfortable. It would have to take a pretty special belt to convince me of wearing it!

Well guess what I found when I went to Chadstone? My dream belt! Where, you ask? In Prada (of course!). Guess I won't be wearing a belt anytime soon!

It was such a cute little bow belt ( and you know how much I love bows-see this post!). This dream belt was made from patent black leather (there are other colours, like gold too), featuring a flat bow and was adjustable (added bonus). It was very functional because I could wear it up higher around a sweater or lower adorning a pair of jeans. Priced at just under $500, I walked away, sad faced. 

So, I think I'll pass on the belt thing for the moment, but if anyone knows where I can find a cute patent leather skinny bow belt at a more affordable price, please pass the links my way. 
Thanks. ;)

  2. lovely belt, you should try making one for yourself. I am sure the fabric stores stock gold pleather? If not, you could always buy a white or black pleather and spray it gold :)

  3. Great outfit
    Fantastic blog.
    Come and pay us a visit sometime,
    Peace and love,

    Skip the purchased coffee every morning & make it at work instead.
    Eliminate dining out once per week.
    Take a "holiday" on your gym membership for a month.
    Cut out all alcohol for 3 months.

    That should have the belt paid off within 3 months max, but you'll have to buy it outright up front as Prada wont lay-by.

    Does that help? If you really want it, you'll find a way. X


    And they are on sale too :)

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

I love miu mui

My absolute favourite international designer has to be mui mui . I find myself falling in love again and again, with each new season collection. Muiccia Prada's label is fun, feminine and fabulous!  We're really lucky to have a mui mui store in Melbourne actually. For anyone who has ever been to Chadstone Shopping Centre, you would know it is the fashion Mecca for anyone looking for high-end designer clothing and accessories. Every single time I go to Chadstone, without fail, I pay a special visit to mui mui. I know mui mui garments, shoes, and accessories are on the more expensive side, but a girl can dream right? There's just something extremely appealing to me that keeps me coming back season after season. Now to save up for a piece to call my own some day...            Do you have a high-end international designer who you really enjoy? Who is it and what makes them so appealing to you? Enjoy t

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!
