Sainte Lucie

Adelaide label Sainte Lucie has only been around for a couple of collections now but I have a feeling that it’s one Australian label you will start to see plenty of. Lucy Tucker creates intelligent pieces made from silks and cottons making them wearable but light with a certain delicacy.

Little things

I’ve been really sick this weekend, which is handy in a way because it means your work week isn’t interrupted. Not a great deal can be done about my health or the weather however so as I lay on the couch today I thought about some of my favourite things that I use every day or that make me happy.

Raoul SS 11/12 Preview

I was first introduced to the Raoul label on a trip to Singapore for Audi Fashion Week last year. It was great to discover a label that could translate to the Melbourne climate and so far I think this is my favourite collection.

Size Matters

While on a recent shopping expedition I happened upon a lovely dress in Zara. The ‘S’ hadn’t fit, the ‘M’ was snug and the ‘L’ was perfect. The only other size available was XL.

If you have ever felt like this when shopping, you’re not alone. Women face this problem everyday in shops all over Australia, as there is no standard clothing size used in the Australian fashion industry.

July Reading

…or brains are sexy, so says The Gardener.

I thought that was quite funny because we all read don’t we but it is nice to talk about what’s on our current reading lists.
