One hot Saturday

One hot Saturday, I spent the morning at my fabulous hairdressing salon: Rokk Ebony . I always leave there feeling fabulous and today was no exception. Nothing beats having a fresh cut and colour! I love to wear breathable fabrics on days like these and this outfit is perfect, since it is made from silk. This versatile Louis Vuitton accessories pouch also doubles as a clutch. You'd be amazed at how much this actually fits in.   Today my husband and I took a little drive around Middle Park, Albert Park and Port Melbourne. I looked in some lovely boutiques- Paloma Bleu (see this post ) and Diva Scandinavia . I purchased a couple of things from two of my favourite Swedish designers, Filippa K and Maria Westerlind . Keep your eyes posted on my blog during the Festive Season where all will be revealed! Hoping your weekend was great! What does this week have in store for you? Hopefully work won't be too crazy for me. By the way, is it too soon to star

Ellery Resort '12

Quirky, chic and feminine, with an edge. That's the new resort '12 collection from          E L L E R Y . Colours of pure white, fiery red, metallics, and turquoise mixed with aubergine, it's a playful fusion of colour. I'm loving this collection, with its crisp silhouettes and interesting design details, exposed stitching, subliminal textures , drapery and structural fabrics.     I hope you had a great week! I'm revelling in the fact it's Friday. Although I'm doing the laundry right now- even fashionistas need to do housework -I'm relieved to have a break from work. It's been a crazy week!! I'm looking forward to Melbourne's hot weather this weekend too. What are you up to peeps? Yours in style, Suzi x images sourced from E L L E R Y


It's nice to be able to walk into a shop and know that the majority of the items off the rack are most likely going to fit you for a change. I do have my trusty tailor on hand but I would prefer to buy garments which require very little altering. Max & Co is one such shop. I purchased an outfit from Max and Co a couple of months ago from their Spring/Summer collection. I promise to feature this in a  special blog post for Christmas. Hopefully the suspense won't be too much to bear! Since Max and Co is an Italian label, they are a season ahead of Australia. Here is a snippet of their current Preppy c ollection for Autumn/Winter.    Max & Co never ceases to disappoint me in their choice of chic, feminine classic pieces. Plus, I 'm a sucker for stripes and tartan! I'm really looking forward to relaxing over this weekend. Work has been flat out and it's that crazy time of the year again. I'm looking forward to walking along the beach on S

mui mui resort campaign

Miuccia Prada of Mui Mui reveals her new Resort Campaign. Feminine yet quirky, with floral detailing and luxurious fabrics. So divine! How cute are the bows? I cannot believe Christmas is just around the  corner. What's on your wish list this year? I'd love something from Mui Mui, of course. I've been a good girl Santa! Hope your week has been great so far. I am finally finished typing my reports! Hoorah! Yours in style, Suzi x Images from mui mui website.

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M

I admit to getting rather excited when I hear about high end designers collaborating with high street labels. Such is the case with French fashion house, Maison Martin Margiela and H&M .  I guess I won't be able to have first hand experience of the collection, since Australia does not as yet have a H&M, but I foresee that this may be a possibility some time down the track.    You can purchase current footwear collections by Maison Martin Margiela from Deb & Alice of Treasurette, a fabulous boutique, boasting high end designer footwear and accessories. Located in the heart of the city, there's no excuse but to pay them a visit the next time you venture out that way. I can't tell you how happy I am that it is Friday. My week has been extremely hectic with, from testing students through to corrections and typing of student reports, it has been full on. Even though I shall be continuing my reports this weekend, it's so good having s

Baby, I'm feeling blue

I have this fabulous baby blue argyle cashmere sweater which I love to wear when I'm feeling blue! It cheers me up in an instant and makes me feel warm and cosy. Another little soft and cuddly little thing in my life that cheers me up as well, is my fluffy companion, my little dog. His name is Scrufffy and he is adorable! Always there when I need him, so reliable, so lovable.  What do you do on days when you're feeling blue? Hope you're having a fabulous week. I have had one of the most stressful weeks ever, but I'm getting through it, day by day. I cannot wait to see the tail end of these student reports. I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time again.  By the way, if you live in Melbourne and know of any new boutique openings or new designers, please let me know as I love to show my support. Thanks. x Drop me a line if you have anything at all you would like me to answer related to style/beauty/designers.
