plaid

I have such a soft spot for anything plaid, mainly skirts and dresses. The king of plaid was the late and legendary Lee Alexander McQueen himself, who had a penchant for plaid as well.

It's so wonderful that Alexander's legacy has been able to continue with Sarah Burton, appointed head designer of the brand back in May, 2010. Such big shoes to fill in my opinion, which I believe she has done to an extent. With due respect, of course, Alexander remains irreplaceable.

Sarah has achieved many awards, amongst her most significant, an O.B (Order for the British Empire), awarded in June, 2012. Just what did she do to be awarded such an honorable accolade? Sarah Burton has made such an impression on the British fashion industry and this has lead to her being recognised for her vital contribution. I'm certain Alexander McQueen would be most proud. 

Please enjoy these images of my favourite looks from the MCQ collections of Alexander McQueen.







I hope you have been enjoying your weekend.
Life is extremely busy for me right now since I am back working full time, teaching Year 1 children. It's really nice to have the best of both worlds, with my day job and writing to you here on the blog. I am truly grateful for all of your support!

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!

French nautical

I love 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. Audrey Hepburn Brigette Bardot 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.
