Style vs Fashion

Can I have great style without being in fashion? The answer is yes, of course. Great style does not mean wearing the latest trends. Trends come and go, but real style lasts a lifetime.

I would rather have great style than to wear the latest trends. I am not a trendsetter, but rather a person who looks to the classics. I believe in investment dressing, which means buying timeless pieces that will still remain stylish, year after year and time after time.

Yes, I love some trends that come and go, such as the liberty prints, pastels and lace. However, I can't see any point in wearing head-to-toe trends. What I prefer, is to select a trend and work this into my existing wardrobe. That way, it keeps the look fresh and chic. It's also a way to save money in the long run, since it's pretty much like shopping in your closet.








I look to style icons, such as Audrey Hepburn, for inspiration. She was a woman who truly reflected the very essence of classic, timeless style. I'm sure that Audrey still managed to have a little fun with trends as well, no doubt, whilst staying true to herself.

So, tell me if you agree or not that you don't have to have be wearing the latest trends to be a person who exudes great style. What are your thoughts? 

I have had one of the busiest weeks all year with typing student reports. I'm looking forward to submitting them next week!! I hope your week has been fabulous! Have you got anything special planned for the weekend?

Yours in style,

  1. I like your way of presentation. I also look for long run fashion trends...

  2. If there's one person who captured the essence of style over fashion, it was Audrey! I fully agree - trends can be fun, but being true to yourself in terms of what suits you is so much more important! Hope you've been well love!

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

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&…

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.
