spend or save?





 
I am the first to admit that when it comes to saving, I'm no pro. Saving sounds easier than it looks in reality. 

It's that time of the year where new season looks and trends start to launch online and in store. When you're trying to save up for something, whether it be an investment piece or other, this can be quite distracting and set you off track in an instant. So just how do you stay on track then?

I don't have any fast-fix solutions. However, what I can offer you are some tips which may help to keep you focused. 

My first tip is to keep clippings of what you're saving up for on your fridge or inspiration board or pin on Pinterest. Every day or so, take a good look at the image. This will reaffirm your desire to continue to save for the item in question so that you're less likely to give into other temptations.

Another tip is to just buy the things you need, aka the things you run out of, in so far as skincare and beauty products and anything else inbetween which you simply CANNOT live without. 

My final tip is to work out how many items you have purchased recently which you really could have lived without. Then use a calculator and simply add up how much money you have spent on these items that you didn't need. You may find you would could have had enough money to purchase the item you're saving up for. 

Recently, I have made the decision to save instead of spend. Although there will definitely be other temptations along the way, I will put my own tips to good use to keep my eyes on the prize.

So can you guess what I have finally made up my mind to save up for? OK, I'll be nice and give you a little hint. The item I am saving up for was worn by my style icon, Audrey Hepburn in the iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's.

If you have any tips for saving, please add them to my comment section below. The more tips to keep us on track, the better I say!

Enjoy your week!

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove 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.


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. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
