The perfect gift

I knew I wanted to buy myself a little something after my stint in hospital. I kept the thought in the back of my mind and I promised myself that as soon as I was fully recovered, I'd go shopping! So I did.

One of my favourite shopping destinations is Westfield Doncaster because it is home to a few of my favourite high-end designers and boutiques, such as Ralph Lauren, Gant, Max & Co, Max Mara, Christensen Copenhagen and Bally

I knew that there were sales going on and so it seemed like the perfect time to shop for a little something just perfect for me.

While looking in Christensen Copenhagen, I found a grey cashmere sweater by By Malene Birger. Malene Birger is an award winning Danish designer, formerly of Day Birger et Mikkelson. The price had been reduced and was within my price range. Perfect! So I tried it on and fell in love with its buttery soft texture and loose, comfy style.


I had been needing to purchase a few pieces that I could wear on the weekend for day and be able to dress up for a casual night out as well. Many of the sweaters I already own are quite tight fitting, shorter in length and hug my silhouette. This sweater is loose fitting and therefore more comfortable to wear. It does taper in at the lower waist, which flatters the figure. I'd say this style could possibly suit most body types. 



















There's a label sewn onto the back of the garment which reads "For yourself or the man in your life". Isn't that sweet? The fact that this sweater is a boyfriend style means that is is quite possible for your man to wear your sweater too. It's a cute concept, your man borrowing your sweater. Usually it's the other way around!


So there you have it! My little gift, to keep me cosy and warm during the season of Winter. I can also see myself wearing the sweater during cold Spring nights as well due to the fact it's 2 ply, making it very transeasonal. 

Anyway guys, I hope you have had a fabulous time over the weekend. Have a wonderful week and remember that whatever you do, make sure you do it in style.

Yours in style,

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

Olga De Polga

Melbourne based designer Olga de Polga  is renowned for their use of colour and vibrant patterns. I really enjoy adding a pop of colour when I style outfits, so if you love colour, you are bound to find something fabulous. On my recent visit, I picked up two pairs of Lillian pants, a new style to ODP, in both pink and caramel. These colours go so well with other pieces in my wardrobe. Style tip: I will not add anything to my wardrobe if it doesn't go with other pieces, so I am very particular when choosing a new piece to add to my collection. The cords fit really well, sitting at mid-waist and fall at the perfect length. The corduroy fabric is soft and feels so cosy, so perfect for Winter here in Melbourne!  Have you visited Olga de Polga? If so, what are your favourite pieces? If you haven't been in store yet, make sure you do so soon, because some styles are selling out really fast. Have a great rest of the week! Yours in style, Suzi x  What I'm Wearing ODP Lillian pants

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!
