Kangnam Style



 














The Kangnam Collection by Gasparre Cashmere was inspired by designer Rebecca McGeoch's recent trip to Seoul in South Korea. Rebecca's inspiration was the city's street-style colours and styles, as well as the people and the surrounding architecture. The collection's strong colour palette reflects the luxury that is the city of Kangnam, where there is a playful interplay between bold colours, patterns and textures. 

This collection is bold, playful and chic. The colourways used are strikingly beautiful, with the interplaying of neon brights and classic colourways, such as white and navy. I love the fusion of colour, stripes as well as the crochet-styling. My favourite ensemble has to be the striped sweater-cardy combo. It's simply divine!

What is your favourite piece?

Well, this weekend has just flown by. Yesterday the day started off nicely with a pampering session at the hairdressers, followed by some car-hunting, and finished off perfectly with a romantic dinner for two. Today has been a bit more low-key, consisting of a relaxing catch-up with my mother and later on, an enjoyable afternoon spent at home, pottering around.

I'm so excited to say that I have one more week of work and then I take a break for two weeks! I am really looking forward to relaxing over the holidays, as this term has been rather hectic, to say the least. 

How has your weekend been? Did you get up to much?

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

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!

My top ten must-haves!

Fashion fads come & go, but real style stands the test of time. As mentioned earlier, I'm one for classics versus trends. I love buying clothing that lasts and is therefore timeless.  I have put myself up for the challenge of finding classic pieces using Audrey Hepburn as an example. Here's my list of the top ten must-haves!! 1. Man's style classic buttoned down white shirt 2. LBD-Little Black Dress 3. A-Line dress/skirt 4. Trench Coat (Burberry is the original) 5. Black turtleneck sweater (Preferably cashmere) 6. Leopard print (one piece at a time/NEVER more than one!!) 7. Silk Scarf (Preferably Hermes) 8. Ballet Flats 9. Pearls (Earrings/necklace) 10. Investment handbag (look to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada for classic styles)   What's your favourite out of my top ten must-haves?  Enjoy your weekend and, whatever you do, make sure you do it in st
