taking time out

I've been so busy lately with work commitments, report writing and life in general. I feel like I haven't had much time for myself, so I decided to change things up a bit last weekend.

To pep myself up, I chose to wear this Karen Walker silk dress. I love this because it has a vintage feel. It was rather chilly, so I jumped at the chance of wearing my favourite knee high boots ever! Of course, rainy days call for a handbag that can tolerate a bit of rain, so I decided to take my leather Miu Miu out with me. 











I needed to run a few errands, so while I was out, I enjoyed a relaxing stroll down to the shopping strip along Balcome Road, Black Rock. 

I love visiting one of my favourite boutiques, Pearl Rock, located at 603 Balcombe Road. Pearl Rock stock Australian and New Zealand designer labels, such as Karen Walker, Megan Park, Flannel and The Ark, plus a huge range of fabulous accessories.

While I was there, I checked out Karen Walker's new Spring/Summer 2013 Resort collection. Suffice to say I didn't end up buying anything. Nevertheless, it was so wonderful taking time out. 

What do you do to take time out?

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your week and manage to find time out for yourself too.

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
