Stella McCartney

I have to admit, I like to spoil myself from time to time. What woman doesn't! However, I am trying to cut that habit down a little to increase my travel budget {emphasis on trying}. But I found these beauties recently and just had to have it - Stella McCartney lace balconette bra and matching underwear. The delicate lace details, the soft blush tone - certainly puts a smile on my face just thinking that it's mine. Thank you Stella McCartney for creating such a gem! Thank you Net-A-Porter for making online shopping such a convenience. No crowds, no fuss, and might I say the impressive packaging and delivery service puts you guys on another level. Certainly made me feel like a VIP. Well done!

Trending NYFW Fall 2013

New York fashion week is now done and dusted (with London fashion week now in full swing). Did anyone notice a certain combo trend on the streets of New York: shades of primary colour and coats as capes. I personally loved it. Mixing two of my favourites. Both classic and fun.

Guilty Pleasures From Home

As much as I love living in my new home {current city: London} there are certain aspects of my life that I miss. Apart from the obvious, family and friends, there was one guilty pleasure that I miss dearly - my regular visits to Zimmermann's Brisbane CBD store. Reason 1) to see what was on offer and 2) catchups with Vella, the cute bubbly sales assistant where I could play dress up and test out the new stock. These sessions occasionally ended with me splurging on myself. {Trust me, if you've ever tried on a piece you'd want to take it home too!}

Nothing beats going in store and physically touching the beauty that has been produced. Seeing first hand a designer's vision become reality; delicate fabrics, vibrant prints, perfectly draping over the natural curves of a woman's body. Can you see why I miss it. For now I'm just going to have to click through the various pages of their website and social media sites. Maybe sneak in a little alone time with the pieces I was able to bring with me to London. Sigh.

Here is my favourite print, done three ways, from their upcoming RTW Spring/Summer collection. I am such a sucker for floral. Subtle, feminine, timeless.
