four seasons in one day

Well, our weather has gone from warm to FREEEZING in one day, would you believe? Melbourne's weather has always had a reputation of having four seasons in one day. I do love the fact it's cold now so I can start wearing my heavier cashmere sweaters. I am a sweater girl after all!

So here I am, wearing my favourite cashmere sweater by Spanish designer, Hoss Intropia. I just love the charcoal grey colour and the layered ruffles at the front. 


I picked up this fabulous, pink tartan skirt by Denny Rose from Euro Collections situated in Mount Eliza. It was on sale, but was the only one left and, not being a size 12, I put it back on the rack. I couldn't believe my ears when I was told they could alter this skirt to fit me!! So it takes pride of place in my closet.

The skirt came with a keyring accessory which I just adore; A coin, bearing the designer's name-Denny Rose, another bearing the name of an animal shelter, which funds from the purchase of this garment are donated to, and a cross.

Just as I had finished taking photographs, it started to rain. In the space of about five minutes the sun came out. You see what I mean when I say "four seasons on one day"? Anyhow, after the rain, I saw the most beautful double rainbow I had ever laid my eyes upon. 

As I laid my eyes upon this amazing sight, I wondered if there was any such thing as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. To run and chase the rainbow would be an impossible feat, so I decided that there must be afterall. Anyone who could actually find the end of the rainbow would definitely deserve a pot of gold!!

Here's hoping your weekend is magical. I'd like to offer you all my sincere thanks for continuing to support my blog and for all of your valued feedback! Comments really do make my day! So go on, don't be shy, leave a comment below!

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!

My top ten must-haves!

Fashion fads come & go, but real style stands the test of time. As mentioned earlier, I'm one for classics versus trends. I love buying clothing that lasts and is therefore timeless.  I have put myself up for the challenge of finding classic pieces using Audrey Hepburn as an example. Here's my list of the top ten must-haves!! 1. Man's style classic buttoned down white shirt 2. LBD-Little Black Dress 3. A-Line dress/skirt 4. Trench Coat (Burberry is the original) 5. Black turtleneck sweater (Preferably cashmere) 6. Leopard print (one piece at a time/NEVER more than one!!) 7. Silk Scarf (Preferably Hermes) 8. Ballet Flats 9. Pearls (Earrings/necklace) 10. Investment handbag (look to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada for classic styles)   What's your favourite out of my top ten must-haves?  Enjoy your weekend and, whatever you do, make sure you do it in st
