Grand Madame Herself

Hidden in a little laneway in the heart of Melbourne, lies a beautiful grand madame and what a grand lady she is! I am talking about the one and only Madame Virtue & Co, located in Crossley Street. Owners Dean Hewitt and JC Lloyd-Southwell d'Anvers, and their beloved Shar-Pei pooch, Maude, bring you the very best of vintage and haute couture from around the world.




Upon entering, you will see walls lined with rack upon rack of one-off couture pieces and high-end vintage gowns. From  Lanvin through to Chanel, there's is something for everyone. 






While speaking to Dean, I discovered the philosphy behind Madame Virtue. Madame Virtue is all about empowering their clients. Admittedly, if I were to wear any of their couture or vintage gowns, I would feel very empowered indeed!

Along with gowns galore, Madame Virtue stocks a range of vintage scarves, such as Hermes and Celine, earrings and necklaces and not forgetting Chanel handbags, my absolute favourite!

Now is the perfect time to visit this grand madame as they are having a major VIP sale (appointment only). Madame Virtue are offering 30 % off all CHANEL and other luxury brands , sale racks $100 off all top international designs , archive /vintage / Madame Virtue samples, as well as some menswear.  Contact Dean (see details below) to arrange your appointment today!

Yours in style,

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

Olga De Polga

Melbourne based designer Olga de Polga  is renowned for their use of colour and vibrant patterns. I really enjoy adding a pop of colour when I style outfits, so if you love colour, you are bound to find something fabulous. On my recent visit, I picked up two pairs of Lillian pants, a new style to ODP, in both pink and caramel. These colours go so well with other pieces in my wardrobe. Style tip: I will not add anything to my wardrobe if it doesn't go with other pieces, so I am very particular when choosing a new piece to add to my collection. The cords fit really well, sitting at mid-waist and fall at the perfect length. The corduroy fabric is soft and feels so cosy, so perfect for Winter here in Melbourne!  Have you visited Olga de Polga? If so, what are your favourite pieces? If you haven't been in store yet, make sure you do so soon, because some styles are selling out really fast. Have a great rest of the week! Yours in style, Suzi x  What I'm Wearing ODP Lillian pants

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!
