Classics: The Trench

How can one still be ever-so-stylish when it's raining? Is it really possible? The answer is yes, of course. Just make sure you're wearing a trench coat. 

Audrey Hepburn showed us just how fabulous one can look during rainy weather when she famously wore a trench coat in the iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. I don't know anyone else who could have looked this good, what, with wet hair and all! She emanated such grace and style! 




Why bother spending so much on a trench coat? you ask. The answer is pretty simple. You will have it forever. Now, that's what I call investment shopping. I don't know about you, but I would rather buy a quality garment which I will have for years to come, rather than buying several over the years, which end up in the scrap heap anyway. If you're going to invest in one trench coat, make it a Burberry trench coat. 









Would you skimp or save on a trench coat? Please share your thoughts below in the comment section.

How was your week? Did you do anything exciting? My week has been extremely busy. Once I'm back at work, it's non-stop. That's why I like to make the most of my holidays, so I have enough energy to get me through another term's work.

Have a lovely weekend!

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 my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.



Although …

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!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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!
