Shop like a Parisian









Is your closet full to the brim? Do you often say that you have nothing to wear but yet have clothes sitting in your closet, some of which still have tags attached? If you in fact answered 'yes' to both questions, it's time to start shopping like a Parisian!

A Parisian woman pays careful consideration to what she already has in her wardrobe and looks at what she needs and sticks to a plan, without going off track and spend money on unnecessary items that will end up hanging in the closet unworn.

For years now I have been shopping like a Parisian and it certainly has paid off. No longer do I buy things on sale, well,  because they're on sale (does this sound familiar?), but now I have a set plan which is leading me to a more workable closet. By that, I mean choosing garments that can be easily worn in more that one way to create a multitude of different looks. I will never buy an item if I cannot see it working with clothing I already own. In conjunction to this, buying high quality designer garments ensures the garments will stand the test of time. Oh, and buying classics versus trends, means you'll have the item for a lot longer too!

Are you ready to start shopping like a Parisian?

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 my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.



Although …

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!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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!
Yours in style,
