Classics: The Little Black Dress

Every girl needs a Little Black Dress. When given an invitation to an event and you don't know what to wear, your trusty LBD will be there for you to save the day. It's a fail safe plan that works every time.

Channelling Audrey Hepburn's character, Holly Golightly from the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, the Little Black Dress is the epitome of femininity, elegance and grace. 


When I received my invitation to attend Cheryl Lin's LBD Project launch, the first thing that popped into my head was that I simply must wear an LBD. The dress that I chose to wear was designed by one of my favourite bridal Melbourne-based designers, Cathleen Jia.

This Dame Ava dress is part of Cathleen Jia's La Premiere collection. A while back, I had the pleasure of interviewing Cathleen Tan, the name behind the label (Click here to go directly to the interview).

This stunning LBD is made from the most exquisite silk satin and silk georgette. It features a handmade silk and lace bow and makes the perfect dress for any special occasion, be it weddings, events and date nights! This has to be the most comfy Little Black Dress I have ever worn!! I could wear it every day.















I'm really looking forward to attending the
relaunch of Cathleen Jia, including the unveiling of her new bridal collection Toujours. Blog post to follow, so stay tuned!

There was a lot of excitement yesterday when I discovered that my media accreditation for the LMFF was successful, so I'm thrilled to announce that I will be attending Paris Runway 7: Presented by Frankie Magazine. I'm really looking forward to seeing these designers showcase their new season collections, especially Karen Walker and Jolet! I'll give bring you all the details, right here on my blog!

Tickets for the LMFF are available from Ticketek now!

Wishing you a gorgeous weekend. We're lucky to be having a long weekend here in Melbourne. The weather has been so hot and I can't wait for it to cool down again!   


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

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!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
