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!

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…

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.

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!
