It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas







Yesterday, I picked up my Christmas present to myself from Burberry. Intially. I never really intended upon getting myself anything, but knew I wanted something new to wear for Christmas Day. After I picked up my garment, I decided it would go under the Christmas tree for me to open on Christmas Day.

I ordered my Christmas present online as it was not available in store. I don't really have an issue with this because it's a simple process to follow. Delivery is free and returns are a cinch. I always choose the option of collect-in-store. The professional and friendly staff at Burberry are always efficient in finding my order and are so helpful when it comes to trying on the garment and making my final choice as to whether or not it the right fit and style. I purchased my Burberry Prorsum cashmere sweater in the exact same way. I absolutely love this sweater and am so glad I made the choice to order it online.

While I was at Chadstone, I stopped into Tiffany & Co to get my new Elsa Peretti diamond ring cleaned. The lovely assistant in the diamond area of Tiffany's recommended to have my ring cleaned every 2-3 months. They use an ultrasonic cleaner and give the ring a good polish. It was also suggested that I get a buff & polish every 2 years, which will cost a reasonable $75.00.

I'm really looking forward to showing you my gift from Burberry. Keep your eyes peeled on my blog for future updates later on in December. 

Are you considering buying yourself a gift to place under your Christmas tree? I'd love to hear all about it! 

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!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
