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,

    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! :)

    1. I also like to get inspiraiton from all around me as well.
      Yes, agreed, fashion is fun as there so many different choices for us all.

  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...

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
