Classics: The Little Black Dress

Every girl needs a Little Black Dress. When given an invitation to an event and you don't know what to wear, your trusty LBD will be there for you to save the day. It's a fail safe plan that works every time.

Channelling Audrey Hepburn's character, Holly Golightly from the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, the Little Black Dress is the epitome of femininity, elegance and grace. 


When I received my invitation to attend Cheryl Lin's LBD Project launch, the first thing that popped into my head was that I simply must wear an LBD. The dress that I chose to wear was designed by one of my favourite bridal Melbourne-based designers, Cathleen Jia.

This Dame Ava dress is part of Cathleen Jia's La Premiere collection. A while back, I had the pleasure of interviewing Cathleen Tan, the name behind the label (Click here to go directly to the interview).

This stunning LBD is made from the most exquisite silk satin and silk georgette. It features a handmade silk and lace bow and makes the perfect dress for any special occasion, be it weddings, events and date nights! This has to be the most comfy Little Black Dress I have ever worn!! I could wear it every day.















I'm really looking forward to attending the
relaunch of Cathleen Jia, including the unveiling of her new bridal collection Toujours. Blog post to follow, so stay tuned!

There was a lot of excitement yesterday when I discovered that my media accreditation for the LMFF was successful, so I'm thrilled to announce that I will be attending Paris Runway 7: Presented by Frankie Magazine. I'm really looking forward to seeing these designers showcase their new season collections, especially Karen Walker and Jolet! I'll give bring you all the details, right here on my blog!

Tickets for the LMFF are available from Ticketek now!

Wishing you a gorgeous weekend. We're lucky to be having a long weekend here in Melbourne. The weather has been so hot and I can't wait for it to cool down again!   


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 my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.



Although …

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!

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!
Yours in style,
