Style vs Fashion

Can I have great style without being in fashion? The answer is yes, of course. Great style does not mean wearing the latest trends. Trends come and go, but real style lasts a lifetime. I would rather have great style than to wear the latest trends. I am not a trendsetter, but rather a person who looks to the classics. I believe in investment dressing, which means buying timeless pieces that will still remain stylish, year after year and time after time. Yes, I love some trends that come and go, such as the liberty prints, pastels and lace. However, I can't see any point in wearing head-to-toe trends. What I prefer, is to select a trend and work this into my existing wardrobe. That way, it keeps the look fresh and chic. It's also a way to save money in the long run, since it's pretty much like shopping in your closet. I look to style icons, such as Audrey Hepburn, for inspiration. She was a woman who truly reflected the very essence of

waves & ruffles

When I need a lift, I opt for a change of hair-do. My trusty GHD hair straightener is definitely something I cannot live without! I have been tired of wearing my hair dead straight, so decided to go for the beach waves look. Well, it is not Summer here, but these wavy locks are bringing back sweet memories of days with sun-kissed skin & walks along the beach. Like my GHD's, this cashmere sweater is another of my trusty favourites. It has such a buttery soft texture and I just love the romantic ruffles.  Plus, it's super warm & cosy. With waves & ruffles, I was set for the day, to face the cold outside. Somehow, having my two favourites made my day just that little bit brighter.  What can you not live without? Hope you have a beautiful weekend, doing the things that make you smile from ear to ear. Yours in style, Suzi x Jeans: Habitual NY, Sweater: Hoss Intropia.

Tiffany 1837

There's nothing quite like standing in front of a Tiffany & Co store, eating a croissant, sipping cafe latte, whilst looking ever-so glamorous. Enveloped in a stunning Black LBD, adorned with pearls, gloves, high heels and a chic handbag. Images of Breakfast at Tiffany's conjure up in my mind, as I peruse the new Tiffany 1837 TM collection.  To celebrate their 175th anniversary, Tiffany & Co have created an exclusive limited edition metal, called RUBEDO TM , a stunning rose luminescent gold. Each piece in the RUBEDO TM collection has been inscribed with the name, Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany & Co. These pieces are only available throughout 2012, making them highly collectible.  Tiffany & Co is a name synonymous with luxury and quality in workmanship. To own a piece of the RUBEDO TM collection would be an incredible acquisition for anyone. Tiffany & Co are available for purchase online and in st

Not AnOther Magazine!

"Not another magazine?" you ask. Yes, another magazine. I cannot count on my fingers how many different style magazines I have either perused or purchased over the past year, which have left me searching for more. While running errands in Malvern on the weekend, I stopped in at the local newsagency which is my go-to-one-stop-shop for style magazines. I usually stock up here because our local newsagency is quite limited in their selection. Whilst perusing the many magazines lining the shelves, my brilliant husband alluded me to this new magazine that we both had never heard of before. I thought instantly to myself, not another (insert a possible naughty word here) magazine.  I took the magazine home with me, yet again, and wondered if it would be THE magazine I had been searching for all my life- something I could rely on, like a good friend, or curl up to, when the weather outside was cold and miserable. Well, let me tell you, that this magazine was not just anoth

I blog, therefore I am

I blog & I live in Melbourne. Two very real elements of my life I am certainly proud of. Just when I thought I couldn't feel prouder, along came Nuffnang Fashionopolis . There I was, on a chilly Saturday morning, sitting amongst the who's who of the Melbourne fashion scene at 1000 Pound Bend , Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. I was certain that this was the place to be, amongst the buzzing sounds of fashionistas, chatting away face-to-face and over cyberspace, via platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.  The brainchild behind this extraordinary event was none other than the Lady herself, Lady Melbourne . Phoebe Montague, aka Lady Melbourne, is one of the original Melbourne bloggers, beginning her journey back in 2007. Meeting Phoebes Montague was certainly the highlight of the day. I learned a great deal from her about the business of blogging, including the very important topic of blogging etiquette. Sponsored by
