SHOP. Alexander Wang Diego Bucker Bag

Alexander Wang bags first hit the scene with the infamous “Rocco”, but now celebrities and fashion conscious are flocking towards a more modern design.

Bucket bags have been making a comeback, and the “Diego” bucket bag is the perfect style item that is also comfortable and easy to carry around on shopping trips. A necessity for my job and with a baby on the way, I want something that’s stylish but that is also practical.

It’s slouchy and downtown-chic. Constructed of rich, wrinkled leather and accented with heavy studs that lend an industrial feel. The edges of the front and main pocket are drawn together with buckled straps, which double as adjustable cross-body and shoulder straps.

In my search for the perfect designer bag, I found the Alexander Wang ‘Diego’ bag was relatively more affordable (in comparision to a Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Celine bag) yet still packed the same fashionable punch.

Horsing Around. Melbourne Cup Carnival, Derby Day

I have rebelled against the black and white fashion instruction for Melbourne Cup Carnival for some time now. But with age and a love a fashion, comes a respect for tradition. And whilst I will absolutely abide by Flemington’s old school glamour come Derby Day next week, for those of you that follow my style, I need to inject a little colour. This Sass & Bide 'Going Home' dress fulfils my Derby Day brief - fashion forward, black and white but with a splash of colour.

Emily in Steele Melbourne & Peeptoe

Every so often I dress someone and find a label that could have been especially made for them. Steele Melbourne (my latest little fashion discovery thanks to Park Avenue PR and The Lofft Fashion Agency) was just that to my beautfiul client, Emily McKay.

Steele’s collection is a confident and dynamic mix of femininity and modern day chic; displaying signature elements such as sheers and silks, fresh color palettes, feminine prints and feature graphics.

Emily’s on-trend statement peplum blouse and leather split skirt were accessorised with a gold tribal necklace by Peeptoe. Emily definitely had a moment, shutting it down at Fashion Aid.

Styling Lynette Bolton. Opening of Morrison’s

Famed restauranter Fraser Short opened his long-awaited redevelopment of the Brooklyn Hotel at 225 George Street in the city. The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room has claims on a new record: its kitchen surely has more former head chefs per square metre than any other Sydney restaurant.

Presenter and my beautiful client Lynette Bolton (pictured with the equally beautiful Tara O’Keefe) was there to celebrate. We thought a little black dress by Natasha Gan with a choker necklace by Divawas the right choice and appropriate for the balmy Sydney evening.

Fashion Institution. Le Louvre

Shopping with a client in South Yarra on Saturday, we visited the oldest of the old-school retailers, Le Louvre in South Yarra. A fashion institution in Collins Street for over 8o years Le Louvre space  transports you to luxurious fashion heaven and has recently made the move to online shopping.

Home to designers Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Stella McCartney, Marchesa,  Jenny Packham, Lanvin and Givenchy to name a few,  the new online store remains loyal to owner Georgina Weir’s ethos and is a digital embodiment of Le Louvre’s exclusive edit of some of the world’s finest fashion labels. Accessories predominate and there are touches of clothing including signature pieces by designers Mary Katrantzou, Balmain and Lanvin. Product designed by the Le Louvre team will also feature.

The shopping experience in-store is not to be missed. The inclusion of graffiti by artist Dan Wenn in fluro pink is simplistically fabulous. Mirrored stairs and a glass staircase provide an amazing central beacon, the kind of architectural juxtaposition you’d expect from an old master made new.

If you feel like treating yourself or just basking in a dose of high fashion, be sure to visit Le Louvre.

Designer. Nicola Finetti + Jeanswest Denim = Love

Last week, I did a spot of shopping with my colleague My Super Nanny founder, Stephanie Wakefield whilst we were having a ’ meeting’ about all things FASHION and my blog on My Super Nanny.

You can never go wrong with a classic skinny leg jean and with the right blouse, and a pop of colour, you can take your look from day to night.
