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.

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!

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.
