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. Beautiful! :)

  4. Great outfit
    Fantastic blog.
    Come and pay us a visit sometime,

    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 :)

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!

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
