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,

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.
