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.

Shop By Heart

Shop By Heart is a fab new online store set up by two Aussie sisters who spent their childhood dressing up in their mothers clothes. Fast forward to present day and they’ve set up the website, with the belief that women should be able to shop with ease, confidence, just like doing something off by heart.

Lady Melbourne’s Christmas Gift Guide 2013

It’s here- the annual Lady Melbourne Christmas Gift Guide! I do love to put it together, and it is such a pleasure to be able to bring you everything from hand made indie labels right through to a bit of luxury.
We are running a little bit behind this year, but the guide doesn’t just have to be used for Christmas, think of it as a nice little handbook for gorgeous things you can find online and beyond for either yourself or the loved ones in your life.

Oh and did I mention you can win it all?! Keep reading!

A look inside my new home

I’ve always been of the opinion that you fill your home with stories from your life- the people in it, the places you’ve been, the memories from times gone by. What I’ve shown you below pretty much all has a story attached to it, and it fills my heart with joy to be surrounded by these stories every day.

The Weekend

I did all sorts of things this weekend, mostly it was a lovely chance to relax and catch up on things after fashion week and the races last weekend. It also gave me a chance to sort of a heap of new things that I have lying around that I just haven’t had a chance to feature as yet.

Recent Purchases

I bought this powder blue, pure angora wool skirt on Etsy last week and I CAN’T WAIT for it to arrive. The weather is starting to get quite brisk here in Melbourne and I just know this is going to keep me perfectly warm. Stay tuned!

Recent purchases…

This is one of my recent purchases from The Reformed Moth on Etsy. I plan of changing the neckline to it’s much more open and wide. I couldn’t resist the dolman sleeves and graphic print!
