Tote- thanks to Ooh La La
Dress- French Connection (similar)
Boots- Zu (love these!)
Necklace- Diva 

SO freezing in Melbourne latetly, so I did a bit of a hop, skip and a jump when I received the perfect Winter coat to review for NatureShop!  It's made of pure merino wool so the quality is amazing.  As you can see there is a double-breasted button closure which ecures over a hidden front zip.  The interior pocket is one my favourite features and inside it is ANOTHER pocket! The internal cuffs are also a bit fabulous- so soft and cost, perfect for extra warmth.  The scarf is also from NatureShop- again 100% merino wool you simply can't go wrong.

This lovely tan tote is part of the Spring range for OohLaLa available at Myer now.

The West End + GIVEAWAY

So in THIS post you heard all about my visit to The West End at Crown, the brand new destination for dining and entertainment in the heart of Melbourne.

Now I want to tell you about The West End App which gives you access to special offers and rewards at all The West End venues- The Merrywell, Lumia, Cotta and The Common Room.  All you need to do to access these is to Check-in on arrival using the App and the offers and rewards magically appear.  My offers for the night were 20% off cocktails at Lumia, and $15 for a burger + pint at the The Merrywell.  Definitely decided to take up the 20% off cocktails option!  I just showed the offer to the staff when paying and they were able to apply the discount- so easy.

Another cool feature of the App is the camera which lets you add on different framing options, and then of course share your pics on Facebook with a comment.  Clearly it is addictive!

Of course it is FREE and compatable with iPhones, iPads and Androids.

Levve shoes- thanks to Steve Madden
Phone case- thanks to Iconemesis
Ring- thanks to Samantha Wills
Denim shirt- DeFry (similar here
Necklace- Sportsgirl (<$20 here, >$200 here)

How cool are these shoes, high-tops with a 3.5 inch heel! Brand new in at Steve Madden this month.  LOVE them!  I also must point out this fabulous iPhone cover, those cute little partying cats make me smile every time I look at it : )

This is what I wore the other weekend to the matinee performance of Barry Humphries 'Eat Pray Laugh'.  It was the only show I was able to get tickets for, and his second last performance in Melbourne.  We may have been the youngest folk in the audience but I am SO glad we made it,  I absolutely love Dame Edna- a true Aussie icon, and we were in hysterics the entire show.

Addie tote- thanks to Ooh La La
Crystal necklace- thanks to Zabe

Here I am in Canberra right by good old Lake Burley Griffin.  Both my family and my husbands family are here and we had such a lovely weekend of family time and good food before the long drive back home to Melbourne. 

Today's outfit is really classic and simple, a white shirt and skinny indigo jeans both absolute wardrobe staples.  Paired with strappy sandles and this gorgeous blue, cream and tan bag which is part of the new Spring range from Ooh La La accessories available at Myer.  This crystal necklace from Zabe was a surprise in the mail this week and I thought it looked beautiful with rose gold jewellery.

Suped up Slashers

Slasher shorts- thanks to MinkPink
Pura Vida bracelets- thanks to Skinny Chili

It's officially time to embrace your inner designer and let loose on your denim shorts for
MinkPink's 'Suped up Slashers' competition and your chance to WIN a new season wardrobe valued at $1000- pretty amazing!!

I discovered this bright neon print in my mum's fabric box and thought it would be just the thing to transform these babies into my very own 'Slasher DIY statement'.  Teamed with bright bracelets I'm feeling ready for Summer now- a bit of tan wouldn't hurt either ; )   I should add that every Pura Vida bracelet purchased helps provide jobs for local artists in Costa Rica.

The MinkPink competition closes soon so get in quick.

Spring is just around the corner and I'm already falling in love with the new Spring Summer collections on offer at David Jones.  Think wild style safari as tribal patterns and warm, sandy colours make a return, as well as punchy tropical prints in vibrant colours and new floral prints so perfect for Spring. 

“This summer at David Jones, we want to make you dream. Whether your imagination takes
you to St Tropez or Africa, Bondi or Broome, fashion is all about the escape capsule wardrobe,”
 says Sophie Clark, David Jones General Manager.

David Jones will be live streaming their Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Launch from 7pm on 14th August from their blog HERE.  Such an amazing opportunity to experience the Summer fashion celebration, and of course see Ambassadors supermodel Miranda Kerr, Samantha Harris and Jason Dundas, as well as renowned Australian talent Montana Cox on the runway.
