Lady Melbourne does 70s Glamour

Your Favourite Clothes

What’s your favourite thing to wear? And I’m not talking about a Snuggie or no-pants-are-the-best-pants attitude. Is there an item of clothing or style that you go back to again and again?

Black lace maxi dress

Rise Like A Phoenix

I love black lace in summer and winter, and while the leaves are turning golden and the days getting colder here in Oz, this type of dress is one of those trans-seasonal pieces you can wear across the seasons.

Lady Melbourne's DIY tassel heels

DIY embellished tassel heels

One area that shines on Pinterest is the DIY section, be it for clothing, crafts, home repairs, hair dos- you name it. I happened upon a tutorial to make your own tassel or fringed heels that was easier than I could believe.

Lady Melbourne wearing Sussan dress

From Sussan With Love

I’ve never been a slave to labels, rather always looking for good quality fabrication and cut. It doesn’t matter to me whether something is op-shop, high street or designer, I’m more interested in whether the garment is a natural fibre, how it’s cut and where it’s made.
On the hunt for simple, modest and fashionable clothing to take with me on my recent trip to Jordan, I stopped into Sussan and found this shift dress that ticked all of those boxes.
