LBD with a twist


 
 

 
  
 

I love Melbourne, not only is it the place I call home, it is also home to some of Australia's most talented designers.

This LBD is by the Melbourne label, Very Very I actually didn't buy it in Melbourne though. I found it in a quaint vintage style boutique in Bairnsdale, of all places. 

I love the cute buttons which feature on the faux pockets and on the left shoulder. These accents give the dress a rather mod feel.

The sleeveless shirt I am wearing underneath is by Melbourne designer, Jolet. It's silk and has a digital print of a beach sunset. I have worn it in a few different ways on the blog. See here and here. I adore the collar with its nude pastel tone and thought it would look sweet underneath my dress.

Well, my holidays are almost over. I've thoroughly enjoyed spending time with family and friends and doing the things I don't usually have the time to do when I'm working. Oh and relaxing! I did plenty of that too, so I'm feeling re-energised and ready for a busy term of teaching. Boy, am I going to miss my sleep-ins!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter.

Yours in style,

Style Icon

Style icon: someone who inspires you to dress the way you do.

I cannot think of anybody else who has inspired me as much as my style icon, Audrey Hepburn. It's her classic style that I love the most. 

Looking at photographs of Audrey, these could be images from today. Classic style never fades. It's always in fashion. 

Items such as an LBD, man's white shirt, Breton tops, ballet flats, scarves, trench coats, are items which are timeless. Every fashionista needs to have classics like these, which form the basis of their closet.












I have quite a few classics I turn to time and time again. My white shirts are just one example of items of clothing that are on constant rotation in my closet, along with my cashmere sweaters, which I admit to having an extensive collection. Let me know if you're interested in seeing this collection and I'll do a blog post for you. x

Who is your style icon and how do they inspire you? 

Well, I'm finally on two weeks break and look forward to relaxing. It was a very hectic term with my students and I am in need of some well-earned R&R. I'm looking forward to sleeping in the most!

Enjoy your weekend!

Yours in style,
