B & M

I've got to tell you about a designer which I think has the best contemporary cashmere around; Banjo & Matilda. You may have seen fashionistas and celebs wearing sweaters with a skull and crossbones logo & B & M, their trademark design. Banjo & Matilda also use two kisses, stitched into their garments, for a really cute touch.

Banjo & Matilda was launched in 2008, by Belinda MacPherson and is made and designed in Bondi Beach, Australia. Belinda designs "for real life and a love of absolute comfort and longevity. Simplicity with a generous serve of discreet luxury makes me happy, and I am guessing/hoping/knowing you'll love it too".

What I really love about Banjo & Matilda's designs is that they reflect an easy-going, chic attitude, which is what really appeals to me. Belinda's garments are very wearable and versatile. Take for instance the Ultimate V, available in a myriad of seasonal colours. This can be worn casually with jeans and flats, then dressed up for evening wear. Just add some heels and you're good to go.

I don't actually own any Banjo & Matilda yet, but I have this fabulous designer on my wish list in CAPITAL LETTERS!! They offer free postage on all domestic orders within Australia. You can purchase Banjo & Matilda's range of clothing and accessories if you live outside of Australia as well, and it's free if you spend $500.00. All garments purchased online come in a gorgeous brown box, tied with a coordinating ribbon. Sounds divine, doesn't it?

It's "hump day" today guys and there's only two more days left of work for me. Tomorrow will be a very long day/night as we have our school's art show. Let's hope time flies as I really am in desperate need of a holiday!! By the way, I am hoping I can continue my blog while I travel. I'd love to share with you some of the highlights and perhaps some boutiques I discover along the way.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 

Yours in style,

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!

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&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
