Making a case for the “Little White Dress”

Making a case for the “Little White Dress”

I know we all LOVE our little black dresses. So easy, so simple and always so cool. But there is one hundred a case to be made for the little white dress. And I don’t even mean just in summer, either. The little white dress is becoming a must have in my wardrobe, and here’s why you should consider adding on to yours. It’s fun!  I know, that’s deep, right? Haha. But seriously, the little white dress is fresh and modern, it’s youthful and fun. If you want to mix things up from your usual, give it a try. For me, every time I slip this swishy, ASOS number on (pictured) it feels like summer. And summer feels like good times,…

My spring races style for 2016

My spring races style for 2016

My sister is celebrating her birthday at the spring races in town again this year. It means that I’m again on the hunt for another races outfit, something that I can wear comfortably in the sun most of the day and still look amazing. The biggest factor is that this race meet has a black and white theme, exciting! Cue visions of elegant women trackside like a scene from My Fair Lady. So. Elegant. I mention that because there’s a chance that my research and my plans for this 2016 spring races season might be a little biased towards the black and white side of things. So I did my best here not to include the dozens of black options out…

Classic all black textured outfit

Classic all black textured outfit

When it comes to wearing black, I keep it interesting by incorporating textured fabrics. It’s hardly revolutionary, Melbournites have been doing it for as long as black has been in. It keeps the outfit interesting but simple. It simple works every single time. Using textures for interest is pretty simple too. In this outfit, I’ve used a leather-look midi skirt (my current loooove) and layered this top over it. It’s a simple outfit. Really simple and easy to wear, but it’s got a certain impact about it too. The top brings that. The skirt brings that. The nude boots in their easy perfection add to it as well. They sort of bookend with my hair actually, now I think about it. And…

How to wear sneakers with everything!

How to wear sneakers with everything!

Wearing sneakers with everything and anything is my thing. It used to be ankle boots, then somewhere along the way I decided that sneakers were fun and never took them off again. So when people kept landing on the blog asking ‘how to wear sneakers with this or that’ I decided it was time to answer the searching. Don’t you think? And sneakers can mean all sorts of styles from Converse to street style trainers to a more preppy style that looks like a loafer hybrid thing. Whatever your style sneakers are one of those items that every girl needs in her wardrobe. Because comfy. Haha. So let’s get the ball rolling, pull on your sneakers team. Sneakers and Dresses…

Winning in a simple white dress

Winning in a simple white dress

This little white dress, perfect for spring/summer, arrived just before I left for Melbourne and I optimistically put it in my bag. I always seem to bring the unseasonably warm days to Melbourne; maybe, this time, would be the same, and I’d need a warm weather option. It wasn’t. We had cool weather for once. Exciting! But that meant this dress never saw the light of day. It peeked longingly, but it was never to be. So home it came again and the moment finally arrived in the shape of Father’s Day dinner with the family. Easy to wear, only slightly risky given the presence of my adorable niece and nephews, and on a warm enough Sunday afternoon that it…

All the newness for winter

All the newness for winter

Tonight the local show kicks off for the general public. Event and stall holders and the like have been here a while, but tonight with a bang of fireworks, it all begins. It’s show time. A hot topic of discussion leading up to this week is where is the normal show weather. Where are the cold nights, the temperate days, the sunshine or the rain (we alternate between both). There has been none of it. Until yesterday. Yesterday there was a killer sunset and bam, the cold descended and we find ourselves with a heaping helping of show weather. Mr Suger and I even shut up the house for the first time this year last night. There are already whispers…

Casual Mustard

Casual Mustard

Here’s the thing, I have this obsession with mustard the colour, and well the condiment too now that I mention it. But it doesn’t really like me back. But I keep trying and it keeps rejecting me and I keep trying… And well, you get the point. Ordering some newness at ASOS a little while back I had the option of this dress in a couple of colours. I chose mustard because I’m a glutton for punishment. It arrived, I loved it and it as usual the bitch didn’t love me back. Haha. But I’m forcing it by using the patterned floral bomber as a bit of a buffer. What can you do. Sometimes if it makes you happy, you should…
