taking time out

I've been so busy lately with work commitments, report writing and life in general. I feel like I haven't had much time for myself, so I decided to change things up a bit last weekend.

To pep myself up, I chose to wear this Karen Walker silk dress. I love this because it has a vintage feel. It was rather chilly, so I jumped at the chance of wearing my favourite knee high boots ever! Of course, rainy days call for a handbag that can tolerate a bit of rain, so I decided to take my leather Miu Miu out with me. 











I needed to run a few errands, so while I was out, I enjoyed a relaxing stroll down to the shopping strip along Balcome Road, Black Rock. 

I love visiting one of my favourite boutiques, Pearl Rock, located at 603 Balcombe Road. Pearl Rock stock Australian and New Zealand designer labels, such as Karen Walker, Megan Park, Flannel and The Ark, plus a huge range of fabulous accessories.

While I was there, I checked out Karen Walker's new Spring/Summer 2013 Resort collection. Suffice to say I didn't end up buying anything. Nevertheless, it was so wonderful taking time out. 

What do you do to take time out?

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your week and manage to find time out for yourself too.

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!

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.
