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,

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
