Melbourne Muse

Norman (of Musing Mutley) represents a lot of what I love in men's style - neutral tones, clean silhouette, beautiful natural fabrics with a touch of individual quirkiness. He just looks effortlessly cool. The boat shoes are my favourite part - they convey so much character and story.

We joked that this outfit is quintessentially Melbourne but it really is - I am proud to live in a city that possesses such great style!

a piece of paris: part une

I have never really been the kind of person who is ever lacking in something to say (quite the opposite problem, actually...)

However, when I look at these beautiful boots, everything in my mind goes very peaceful and quiet.

I am guessing that this sensory over (or under?) load would be very similar to what would occur to the mind of a young man when an attractive woman walks past and he's stopped talking to his friends, and now is very clearly concentrating extremely hard on watching her pass by!

And now I suppose the only realistic assumption we can draw from this today...I am a shoe pervert.

C. Louboutin Paola 100 Lace Booties

These guys have been hiding away in my room for a while now waiting for the weather to warm up (rain + mesh = no deal), but they are too lovely not to be shared in the mean time.

we are not the kids we used to be

Sportsgirl cheesecloth lace blouse; Vintage leather patchwork skirt; Country Road suede buckle boots; Sass & Bide horn clutch

Meet my hair - the moody chameleon. It never is quite the same colour at any given day. Ahh what I would give to have hair that behaves for me!!

Your easy lovin aint pleasin nothin

After a particularly long and bitter Melbourne winter, I am so excited to see that SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!!

My favourite part of the year. Spring means the first bare legs, new cotton dresses, sunshine, longer days, happiness, driving with the windows down, dancing on the lawn.

Country Road denim shirt; Country Road print skirt; Vintage tooled belt; Vans lo pro sneaker; Louis Vuitton Manhattan PM

My favourite part of the outfit is the skirt - its actually from the kids section at CR. I seriously doubt that it would fit a normal sized 10 year old if it fits me!! I love it because it reminds me of those gorgeously full circle skirts from the 1950s, but re-interpreted in a more modern way.
