paper back lovers

Until recently, I had only ever read about Camilla & Marc and seen their creations gracing the pages of glossy mags, such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Australia. That is, until I stepped foot into their creative space along the Paris-lesque Street known as High Street, Armadale. I found so many amazing garments hanging deliciously on each hanger, I knew that this label would be one to keep on my style radar.

I visited the boutique when Camilla & Marc still had their Spring/Summer '11 range out. The dress below was on sale and I'm kicking myself that I didn't purchase it there and then. The bottom half which is a gorgeous green shade is actually made from suede. I love the vibrant blue hues, contrasting with the yellow and green. Pure genius!
 



One of my absolute favourites in the Camilla & Marc's new AW '12 Paperback Lovers range is the Maggie May LBD. Although it isn't a classic A-line shape, I love it because of its flattering elements, such as the use of ruching and layers in all the right places.  The cinched in waistband adds to this creative flattery.




 

 

The back of the dress has a cut-out piece that highlights the lower back. There is an exposed zip as well, which I am a huge fan of (see my post on my Bettina Liano bow skirt).

Another favourite element of the new collection is Camilla & Marc's floral accented dresses, skirts and jackets. I'm in love with the floral Revival A-line dress. It's such a chic piece for Autumn/Winter. 


  

I'm of the opinion that Camilla & Marc design creativity and aesthetic is a force to be reckoned with. I hope I get to see their new collection in the upcoming Paris Runway event as part of the LMFF! It would just rock my world, so to speak!  

Who's rocking your world at the moment?

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!

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. Check out my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.

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!
