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

Olga De Polga

Melbourne based designer Olga de Polga  is renowned for their use of colour and vibrant patterns. I really enjoy adding a pop of colour when I style outfits, so if you love colour, you are bound to find something fabulous. On my recent visit, I picked up two pairs of Lillian pants, a new style to ODP, in both pink and caramel. These colours go so well with other pieces in my wardrobe. Style tip: I will not add anything to my wardrobe if it doesn't go with other pieces, so I am very particular when choosing a new piece to add to my collection. The cords fit really well, sitting at mid-waist and fall at the perfect length. The corduroy fabric is soft and feels so cosy, so perfect for Winter here in Melbourne!  Have you visited Olga de Polga? If so, what are your favourite pieces? If you haven't been in store yet, make sure you do so soon, because some styles are selling out really fast. Have a great rest of the week! Yours in style, Suzi x  What I'm Wearing ODP Lillian pants

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!
