Paloma Bleu

One weekend, after running some errands, my husband & I decided to stop off at Albert Park to peruse the boutique-lined strip that is Bridport Street. We came across a quaint boutique called Paloma Bleu. Paloma Bleu is a boutique which specialises in unique designer garments that fill in the gaps which some other retailers leave out. 

Boutique owner, Laura Williamson, friendly down-to-earth, and approachable demeanor put me at ease immediately. This retail space has a wonderful ambiance about it. With a six year background in customer retail, working in London for Paul & Jo and in Melbourne at Bettina Liano's Chapel street boutique, is it any wonder that Laura knows a thing or two about style & customer service. Laura is passionate about meeting her clients wants and needs and sources her garments accordingly.

I noticed lots of candy coloured cashmere sweaters on the left of me as I entered the boutique. They were by none other than Australian designer label Banjo & Matilda, owned & run by Belynda Macpherson.

Paloma Bleu stocks over 20 labels, both locally and internationally. Such labels include Australian and New Zealand labels Karen Walker, Josh Goot, Ellery and international labels such as Lem Lem and Demylee (New York).

With a style icon like Alexa Chung (see this post) as Paloma Bleu's ideal customer, I'd say they Bleu are onto something big. Watch this space! 

So, when you're next headed out the door for that special shopping experience, in search of a unique garment you won't find everyone wearing, head into Paloma Bleu. You won't be disappointed! I'm sure you will find something you'll love. Now, for saving up my pennies!!

Yours in style,

Paloma Bleu is located at 176 Bridport Street, Albert Park, Victoria, Australia. Open every day: Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 10-5pm Sun 11-4pm. Images courtesy of Laura Williamson.

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
