Paloma Bleu

One weekend, after running some errands, my husband & I decided to stop off at Albert Park to peruse the boutique-lined strip that is Bridport Street. We came across a quaint boutique called Paloma Bleu. Paloma Bleu is a boutique which specialises in unique designer garments that fill in the gaps which some other retailers leave out. 




Boutique owner, Laura Williamson, friendly down-to-earth, and approachable demeanor put me at ease immediately. This retail space has a wonderful ambiance about it. With a six year background in customer retail, working in London for Paul & Jo and in Melbourne at Bettina Liano's Chapel street boutique, is it any wonder that Laura knows a thing or two about style & customer service. Laura is passionate about meeting her clients wants and needs and sources her garments accordingly.

I noticed lots of candy coloured cashmere sweaters on the left of me as I entered the boutique. They were by none other than Australian designer label Banjo & Matilda, owned & run by Belynda Macpherson.

Paloma Bleu stocks over 20 labels, both locally and internationally. Such labels include Australian and New Zealand labels Karen Walker, Josh Goot, Ellery and international labels such as Lem Lem and Demylee (New York).

With a style icon like Alexa Chung (see this post) as Paloma Bleu's ideal customer, I'd say they Bleu are onto something big. Watch this space! 

So, when you're next headed out the door for that special shopping experience, in search of a unique garment you won't find everyone wearing, head into Paloma Bleu. You won't be disappointed! I'm sure you will find something you'll love. Now, for saving up my pennies!!

Yours in style,

Paloma Bleu is located at 176 Bridport Street, Albert Park, Victoria, Australia. Open every day: Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 10-5pm Sun 11-4pm. Images courtesy of Laura Williamson.

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

sandy liang fall/winter '22

It's been some time between posts as I have been waiting for something to inspire me. So when one of my favourite designers, Sandy Liang, released the look book from her new Fall/Winter '22 collection, I was so excited, that I decided to edit these looks into ten of my favourites. Sandy Liang stays true to her aesthetic each season. Like previous collections, there are hints of Marie Antoinette and Ballet. The way Sandy Liang fuses the two together is amazing. I am drawn to anything to do with ballet, so, of course, I love this collection! My favourite pieces are the cotton dresses with bow detailing, the trench coat dress, camel corduroy skirt pants and layered knitwear. So wearable, but whimsical in a very grown-up kind of way. Pure genius! Can't wait for the collection to land in Australia. Which are your favourites? Yours in style,  Suzi x Photos by  @zorasicher  c/o Sandy Liang NY
