Alexa Chung-Modern Day Style Icon

Introducing Alexa Chung-modern day style icon and UK TV talk show host. I have always loved Alexa's quirky, feminine, gamine look.

What I love most about Alexa Chung is that she is not afraid to simply wear what she likes, rather than follow trends. I have commented before about fashion going in and out and style being the one constant. Alexa has that style. She rocks!

I also have noticed she wears the same dress many different ways or even the same pair of shoes. This is the way Parisian women dress and it's what I do. I find it so exciting shopping in my own closet, coming up with different oufits.  It helps to keep me inspired and is a great money-saving idea too!

Here's some of my favourite pictures of her! Enjoy!
 




Whilst I appreciate style icons, I never try to emmulate their looks. They offer me such great inspiration to continue to develop my own style, my own way, so I can be just me! That's so important. Always stay true to who you are. Don't try to be someone you're not. 

Who is your modern day style icon & why?

Hope you've had a fabulous week. No matter what you've been doing or where you are in the world, make sure you're having fun wearing what makes you happy!! You can rock it too!

Yours in style, 
Suzi x

    I don't really have one main style icon - I like to get my inspiration from everywhere :) That's one of the fun things about fashion - so many different outfits in the world every day to be inspired by! :)

  9. Great post. I agree with you completely. I love trends but I try to put my own spin on them. I once had a friend tell me she was self conscious about wearing a certain item and I said "Who cares?" As long as you like what you wear, who cares what other people think? I try to live by that...

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!
Yours in style

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

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&…
