Gucci Fall Winter 2020 Women's Ready-to-Wear

Gucci's new collections just keep getting better and better. Led by creative designer aka creative genius,  Allessandro Michele since 2015, this new Gucci Fall Winter '20 collection is no exception. 

Born in 1972, 70s style has always been a great influence for Michele. This collection sees a resurgence of the fashion worn by perfect little girls and their minders, nurses and nuns. 

I was born in 1970 (I am admittedly one year older than Michele) and this collection has stirred up some very lovely memories of dressing up in my favourite navy velvet dress with shirring and ribbons. I remember wearing sweet little girl pinafores, one of which included my grey pinafore school uniform. I proudly wore my long prairie embroidered dresses with the prettiest of cotton materials, made lovingly by my mother, along with perfectly crafted knitwear and crochet, adorned with the most of darling of brooches. Yes, very fond memories evoked indeed. 























What are your favourite looks from this collection?

The last time I posted on my blog, the world has changed dramatically with COVID-19. I do hope you are managing and keeping well in these strange and uncertain times. Let's hope in the not too distant future, we can all get back to doing "normal" things 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!

My top ten must-haves!

Fashion fads come & go, but real style stands the test of time. As mentioned earlier, I'm one for classics versus trends. I love buying clothing that lasts and is therefore timeless.  I have put myself up for the challenge of finding classic pieces using Audrey Hepburn as an example. Here's my list of the top ten must-haves!! 1. Man's style classic buttoned down white shirt 2. LBD-Little Black Dress 3. A-Line dress/skirt 4. Trench Coat (Burberry is the original) 5. Black turtleneck sweater (Preferably cashmere) 6. Leopard print (one piece at a time/NEVER more than one!!) 7. Silk Scarf (Preferably Hermes) 8. Ballet Flats 9. Pearls (Earrings/necklace) 10. Investment handbag (look to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada for classic styles)   What's your favourite out of my top ten must-haves?  Enjoy your weekend and, whatever you do, make sure you do it in st
