Burberry-Bringing back the Classics




Pre-Fall Collection AW 2019

I was quite worried about the vision of new chief creative director for Burberry, Riccardo Tisci, for some time, up until recently. When he made his debut with the British high end designer label back in March, 2018, he really did push things to the extreme with his collections in the beginning. Fashionistas and style gurus on social media were quite disgruntled by Tisci's new revolutionary vision, while I wondered where on earth all of the classics had disappeared to.  Was this the end of Burberry's heritage as we knew it?

I have been in awe of Burberry's classics designs for many years now, especially when Christopher Bailey was at Burberry's helm. When he left, I was quite devastated and a little apprehensive and wondered what would be next for the brand I so adored. 

Fast forward to 2019, the classics have returned full throttle to Burberry's collections and my excitement has been renewed once again. Lace dresses, pleated skirts, classic pants and wearable separates have returned to Burberry collections.  

I can now say I am excited about Burberry once again. Riccardo Tisci has restored my faith in the brand. I already have my eyes on an absolutely beautiful tulle lace black dress with silk slip, a classic that I am thrilled has returned to the Burberry Collections at last. Thank you Riccardo! Bravo!

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&…

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.
