Belle & Peace

Skirt- Zara
Cuff- Thailand markets
Red bead bracelet- Lolitta

A couple of weeks ago I went to Sydney with three of my wonderful girlfriends, on Sunday we checked out the Bondi Beach markets - Oh MY! I could have spent a whole lot of dosh, there was so many amazing local designers with amazing original pieces!!  I don't know how you Sydneysiders resist ; )

I did however purchase this one little delight from Belle & Peace, the charm is so tiny and the string waxed so this little one is staying put on my wrist until it falls off, and then I'll be tying it back on with some new string : )

p.s. Please excuse the veiny hands! It was a warm day : )

Tiffany & Co.

The folk at 2threads.com brought these unique Bottle jewellery pieces to my attention and I simply had to show you.  Elsa Peretti's designs for Tiffany & Co. have seduced the world with their fluid lines and sensual forms.

Elsa describes her vision behind this Bottle pendant...
"Once I was in Portofino and I met all those beautiful women that were wearing Pucci's dresses and had a gardenia in their hand. That was the flash that made me think to realize something to keep the flower fresh and alive, therefore the little bottle came to the light...."

Can't you just picture this little bottle with a Grecian style white maxidress... simply perfect for Summer.

Want one? I know I do!

Skirt- Bardot
Watch- Swatch
Bracelet- Saba
Top- Country Road

This little watermelon mini is becoming such a fabulous little wardrobe staple, it is so comfy and easy to wear and I think the horizontal pleats add just the right amount of interest.  And this platform wedge is so fabulous even Rumi from Fashion Toast has them!

Dress- Bardot
Bangles- Thailand markets
Necklace & Clutch- Colette

When I spotted this dress 'new in' on the Bardot newsletter I peddled my bicycle right up to the door that afternoon to check it out.  It comes in the most AMAZING green colour as well and the lovely staff were so patient with me trying on black, green, black, green, black, green an abnormal number of times, as well as giving helpful advice on sizing. As you can see I settled on the safe black which I love!  Add a tan heel and bag, some gold accents, and I'm ready for this balmy Spring evening!!

Every Melissa starts as a dream

Skirt- Zara
Shirt- Sportsgirl

The green lawns and bright blue sky was simply calling out for a fun outfit and I thought a spot of red and white might just do it, espeically with the addition of these adorable bright RED (and extremely comfortable) jelly heels I received from Melissa Australia last week.  And you know what... they smell like bubblegum! It's delicious!!

To go with the theme, my darling hubby had the most excellent idea of working some bubblegum into these pics... So there was me working two giant pieces of pink Hubba Bubba the entire time, attempting to blow bubbles on demand which resulted in fits of laughter and some pretty darn awful expressions.  Of course, once the camera was off I blew the biggest bubble which burst on my sunglasses, which were destroyed for the rest of the day until I got my hands on some goo-remover!  Needless to say that is why you won't be seeing any bubble pics here today!

All buttoned up

Cargoes & Sunnies- Sportsgirl
Denim shirt- Sportscarft

A denim shirt is one of my absolute wardrobe basics, I even have two that I love and can virtually work into any outfit! This is my more 'formal' darker denim version, and the other is a faded, wrinkled more casual version. 

Are you a denim shirt lover?

Loving Leopard

Dress- French Connection

If you liked the electric blue version of these heels you have got to be in love with these leopard print puppies, or should I say cubs (ha ha), from Steve Madden.

This dress I just fished out from storage where it safely sat all Winter... and most of Spring!  On another note, check out that gloomy sky! Plenty of rain today, and these were snapped in a brief reprieve- phew.

Such a grey day!
 Tee- Marcs
Shorts- Witchery

I don't know if it's been me stalking these shoes, or them stalking me... we've been eyeing of each other from afar some months now.  I'd glace over my shoulder to see them sitting prettily in the Steve Madden shop window, on the cover of the Melboure Central style guide, walking the catwalk at Spring fashion week... but that is now all over because here they are ON MY FEET.

Gotcha! Or did they get me?
