weekend with a twist

One cold Melbourne weekend, I decided enough was enough of my same old, same old up-do. So I experimented and came up with a messy bun (see here for another version)! 

Isn't it funny that when we want our hair to behave, it usually doesn't? When I'm not going out anywhere special, my hair pretty much turns out perfect. When I'm going out, it's more of an effort to get it right. I guess that's what we call Murphy's law.



 

Here's a really quick explanation of how I did this messy bun: 
First, put your hair back as though you are making a ponytail, but don't pull it through completely. You will have made a loop. Next, randomly select small sections of hair. Secure these sections with a bobby pin the same colour as your hair. Keep going, until all of the loose hair is pinned. Look in the mirror as you do this to guide you.




Do you have the same issue with your hair when you go out? Perhaps I need to start to let my creativity flow a bit more, just like I did on this particular day. It's nice to change things up a bit. 

How has your week been? I have had a fabulous week of teaching and catching up with fashionistas (stay tuned for a blog post on this!). Have a gorgeous weekend!

Yours in style,

What I'm Wearing: Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Jeans: RM Williams, Boots: Paul Green. For this hair style, I used Lady Jane Bobby pins in Brown.

  1. Didn't realise it was that easy to create that bun! You should check out Hair Romance. She has some great ideas on her blog & has this "twist & pin hairstyles" e-book at a pretty good price too!

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

I love miu mui

My absolute favourite international designer has to be mui mui . I find myself falling in love again and again, with each new season collection. Muiccia Prada's label is fun, feminine and fabulous!  We're really lucky to have a mui mui store in Melbourne actually. For anyone who has ever been to Chadstone Shopping Centre, you would know it is the fashion Mecca for anyone looking for high-end designer clothing and accessories. Every single time I go to Chadstone, without fail, I pay a special visit to mui mui. I know mui mui garments, shoes, and accessories are on the more expensive side, but a girl can dream right? There's just something extremely appealing to me that keeps me coming back season after season. Now to save up for a piece to call my own some day...            Do you have a high-end international designer who you really enjoy? Who is it and what makes them so appealing to you? Enjoy t

sandy liang fall/winter '22

It's been some time between posts as I have been waiting for something to inspire me. So when one of my favourite designers, Sandy Liang, released the look book from her new Fall/Winter '22 collection, I was so excited, that I decided to edit these looks into ten of my favourites. Sandy Liang stays true to her aesthetic each season. Like previous collections, there are hints of Marie Antoinette and Ballet. The way Sandy Liang fuses the two together is amazing. I am drawn to anything to do with ballet, so, of course, I love this collection! My favourite pieces are the cotton dresses with bow detailing, the trench coat dress, camel corduroy skirt pants and layered knitwear. So wearable, but whimsical in a very grown-up kind of way. Pure genius! Can't wait for the collection to land in Australia. Which are your favourites? Yours in style,  Suzi x Photos by  @zorasicher  c/o Sandy Liang NY
