Lady Melbourne's Flatlay of new accessories

It’s almost Christmas…

Kind of hard to believe that this year is coming to an end and it will be Christmas shortly! Whether it’s small or large gifts I do a lot of shopping as you know and thought I’d start to share my finds in regular ‘flatlays’ for your viewing pleasure. And if it’s not Christmas shopping you’re doing, then enjoy yourself none the less!

The Leather Pleat Skirt

Listen you guys, I’ve never worn a leather, or pleather skirt and I never thought I would until there was a mix up in my order and I ended up with this in my shopping cart.
When it arrived I tentitively unwrapped it, slid it over my hips and did up the zip. And then I kind of fell in love.

Summer Essentials

Summer is around the corner here in Oz, but whether you are reading this from a colder climate I think these ‘essentials’ still apply.

It’s one of the richest group one races in the world with prize money in the millions, and the fashion is of course another major draw card with international VIP’s flying in from all over the world to attend.

Crown Oaks Day in the Lexus Marquee, 2014

Crown Oaks Day, otherwise known as ‘Ladies Day,’ (or blokes day depending on how you see the world) is traditionally a day for women to enjoy the races. I’ve no idea when or why it came to be, but I do know that you do see groups of women all dressed up out for a day of racing, punting and champagne of course.
