Dressed for the occassion

Christmas is such a special time of the year. This year, my husband and I shared this occassion with our mothers, at a quaint restaurant, Verona at the Gateway on Monash. The food was divine, service was great and the company was, of course, wonderful. 

For all special occassions, one must wear suitable attire. I was lucky enough to receive the perfect garment for Christmas from my husband, very fitting for an occassion such as this.

Instead of a Little Black Dress (LBD), I chose to wear a Little Navy Dress (LND) and I do prefer the latter. Why? You ask, when the LBD rates so very highly on the top ten must-haves in a woman's closet?  Well it's simply because navy is a softer, more feminine choice of colour and oozes French chic. You must try it some day, if you haven't done so already, and you will be amazed at the result.














Made with the softest crepe fabric, this LND feels lovely on the skin. The drape of the dress itself flatters a woman's curves perfectly. I just love it and know that I will get alot of wear out of it for years to come. I chose to pair the dress with nude heels to elongate the legs.

The dress comes from the Sea Monsters collection by Karen Walker, a New Zealand designer. The collection boasts a lovely array of garments, from silk tops with little octopus prints to stunning brocaded skirts and dresses made from shantung silk. Karen Walker is stocked at Pearl Rock, Black Rock, Melbourne. 

We are planning a special New Year's Eve celebration at home this year. I am looking forward to seeing the New Year out in style and can't wait to show you what I'm going to be wearing!

I'd love to know how will you be celebrating the New Year and what you're planning to wear.

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!
Yours in style

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
