Happy New Year!!!

The Romantic Wonders…..

What can a new year bring for fashion? Fearless new style…these ladies are ahead of the curve….some years ahead indeed….I love nothing better than the swish of a skirt and a tucked in blouse….but romantic wonders can sit in the same wardrobe of classic masculine pieces….the perfect blazer in wool or check, the knee length [...]

Countryside Magic….Vogue Paris Style……

The end of year is here and so is the sad end to the reign of Carine Roitfeld at Vogue Paris…..while her reasons for leaving is still a mystery…..surely she could edit the magazine and do all her ‘other ‘ projects too…..it is no mystery what an amazing magazine she has shaped….it is a standout [...]

J’Adore Dagmar Rousset……

Only the other day, I had yet another Paris in Melbourne moment….on my way to lunch at new cafe, De Clieu on Gertrude Street, I came across this knitted wonder…..we had only walked past with out stopping, as our hunger was greater than the colours I had just fallen in love with…..but upon our return, [...]

Well the answer is Shane Sakkeus…..he is an L.A. based Australian graphic designer/art director with numerous projects [...]

Moonstruck by Alice O’Malley’s Magic…….

One of my all time favorite film posters is Paper Moon, the sight of a very young Tatum O’neal smoking a cigarette with an expression that is beyond her years, it is priceless…..the film was set in the 1930′s and the moon cut out is very reminiscent of popular postcards of that time……which also inspired [...]

More Gift Discoveries…..Home & Abroad…..

Every so often, I have a little Paris moment in Melbourne, sometimes a Tokyo one…..recently I had a combination of both…I was on the hunt for a baby gift and came across this long established South Yarra store, Home & Abroad, hidden off Toorak Road….it is filled to brim, Tokyo style with some very French [...]
