LBD Project Launch

Last night, I attended the launch of the Little Black Dress Project at Melbourne Central Community Garden. The launch was a celebration of Cheryl Lin's LBD Project exhibition, her fabulous LBD Project book, and Business Chic's 3rd birthday! Now that's three great reasons to celebrate! 

The LBD Project is all about one little black dress and an innovative girl, Cheryl Lin, who wears it to work once a week for an entire year, and manages to find 52 different ways of styling it, either by adding a mixture of shirts and blouses or by mixing it up with accessories and shoes. I often find it quite the challenge to style the same dress in varied ways, so I feel that the LBD Project book will be an invaluable resource for me. Click this link to pre-order your copy today! It would make a great Mother's Day gift too, so why not order two copies?

It was really great to see so many familiar faces at the launch; people who I hadn't seen in so long. I loved catching up with everyone during the night and, of course, celebrating this fabulous achievement with Cheryl. Would you believe that Cheryl managed to write her book in the space of only two months, while continuing to work full-time in her day job? That's that's dedication for you. Cheryl Lin is one hell of an inspiration to what we can achieve if we set our minds to it.
























The LBD Project Exhibition is open to the public, is FREE and runs for the entire month of March as part of the Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

This week as been so crazy at work and home! We have had our beloved dog, Scruffy, in and out of the veterinarian clinic, as he has been really ill. He will undergo more tests tomorrow. Let's hope we find out what is wrong with him so we can help him to get back to his happy, healthy self once more. He's really my most loyal and loving best friend! I love him to bits. 


Keep your eyes peeled on my blog for my next post with lots more pics and details about my outfit!

Have a great Sunday and enjoy the coming week!

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!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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.

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.
